I cannot stand the thought of these beautiful, majestic , essential beings murdered. I have wondered about something - Where are the people?

This beautiful, majestic wolf is not just any animal to me , It is a part of my Soul - it is My Totem Animal - our Souls are intertwined. Cherokee blood runs through my veins and I call upon the people of the First Nations to stand together and help protect this Sacred Spirit !

It is time for ALL people in the Nation of America to stand up to those in Washington and fight for not only the rights of Wolves, but also for the rights for ourselves - the Citizens of this Country that we call our Home
The Country that is supposed to be the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave !! That men and women have given their lives for throughout our History - and still continue to do so to this day .

Do not let them take from us - what the Constitution of these United States says we are entitled to ! The laws they are changing , the lives they are ruing - they have no right to do so. We elected them to represent us - but that does not seem to be what is happening. The seem Hell bent on destroying every aspect of America ! The are destroying the very lands we live on, the air that we breath, the oceans that help sustain this planet, the water we drink, and it seems like they want to take every animal on this earth and toss them aside like they are nothing !

They are destroying our Heritage - slaughtering our Buffaloes, Mustangs,Burros,Wolves and so many more. Cutting down trees that have been here for generations and ripping apart irreplaceable lands , whose beauty takes your breath away - for what - BIG OIL and CATTLE !!

Why is everybody , but a select few amount of people - compared to the millions that live in the USA - just standing by and letting get away with all this mass devastation and detraction of our Home ? There are so many people who are hurting - who have no homes, no food, no jobs, no health care -people who are full of despair and losing hope .

WHY ???????????????????????

It is time ti stand up and fight for what belongs to us all - not just to a select few !!!! The rich are getting richer while the poor get poorer - and children are starving in America !!!!
There is something very, very wrong with this picture and it is time to change it - NOW - before it is too late !!!!!!!!!!

Woody Guthrie wrote a song a number of years ago :

This land is your land, this land is our land
From California, to the New York Islands
From the redwood forests, to the Gulf stream waters
This land was made for you and me !!

Well it is time we made that song true and stand up and take back our rights as Citizens of the United States of America !

And there are those of you who are thinking - this woman has lost her mind - far from it - I am Mad As Hell and I Am Not Going to Take it Anymore! I am sick of Washington destroying the lives of the people and the land , air and water we depend on to live !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And I am fighting mad and going to do everything within my power to do what i can to change the crisis that we are in ! Now who else is going to do the same ?!?!?!?!?!

Ok, crazy angry person here. I was just on and do you know that some animal petitons get up to almost 200,000 signatures there. EXCELLENT. So, I went looking to see how Wolf petitons were doing. First,, I could barely find any! The new Canadian Wolf petiton - not doing so badly, but not good enough. The most recent petition on for the gray wolf was actually fairly well written to stop Idaho/Montana wolf hunts. At day 20, 282 signatures. 282 Signatures after 20 days. PITIFUL. The most recent one here so far has almost 1000 sigs I think, a tad bettter. NOT GOOD ENOUGH. While I know there are people out there and fabulous organizations that are doing everything possible, I am simply bereft and baffled. I do not understand. I am talking to you, Krista, because it's doubtful anyone else is going to read my rant. You know we would not have dogs, if wolves never existed. Where do you think the dog came from? So a dog petition can get over 100,000 sigs (which I am happy about) but why not wolves? Ok, I am out of here. I am simply powerless....

Silly bastards don't they know that wolves are essential! We need the top predators to keep the other animsaa=als under control

First just let me say, Krista & Constance I sooo appreciate your passion for Wolves, I feel the same exact way. I just don't understand how & why people are not up in arms about this either. And the fact that Salazar is a hunter himself isn't very promising! How unfair is it that he should be the one to determine their fate. Major raw deal!!!!

Obama appointed a Republican as Sec. of the Interior and he is following Republican orders on destroying the wolves, buffalo, borros and other animals for the sake of the ranchers who think our public lands are their own. Obama needs to fire Salazar and appoint someone who has an interest in, and will protect, our public animals.

More powerful than the Black Plague! Faster than a loping Moose! Able to cull a deer herd so half of them don't starve in the winter! It's no human hunter, it's a wolfpack! These amazing top predators co-operate to take down weak members of herbivore herds so the strong ones survive and mature, deplete the area's rodent populations so the rodent-borne diseases are kept under control, and can be warded away from livestock predation by adding herd dogs and a few donkeys to the livestock herds as guard animals that are peers to the wolves. While I see nothing wrong with people who load riot rounds into their shotguns or carry cattle prods as part of living in wolf country, I'd also allow for a game warden with a dart rifle full of rabies vaccine...

A beautiful video. Thank you for posting this. I hope all of you Care2 people will join Defenders of Wildlife or one of the other environmental organizations that's been fighting so hard to stop this assault on our wildlife.

A terribly sad testimony to two forsaken species that live on this planet and have a very real right to do so. Add to that the mustang and we have a cruelty so heinous words can never tell the tale of a hopeless story of greed and insensitivity. My heart bleeds.

I don't anthropomorphicise this species, but I don't approve of the way wolves have been villianized, either. I do not approve of the killing state.

Beautiful! Majestic! There is no word to describe those wolves! I can't undestand the cruelty of those who seem to enjoy killing them, no matter what their motives can be. There is not a single good reason to kill animals, especially like that. It really hurts me.

You criticize the way Gaddafi treats people (and I agree!) but there are people here who inflict even worse on wolves and they are not prevented from doing so.

Why are we fighting this battle still?? We fought really, really hard in 1995 and got them released so now we need to do it again to make sure they stay there!! I am part Cherokee and these beautiful animals also seem to flow through my veins. I hate all hunting in this day & age where people will number around 7 billion on this planet in Oct 2011!!!!!!! We need to make up our minds--do we want to live longer or do we want to continue to have multiple children??? You see that is the real question when it comes to every form of life on this planet. WE HUMANS are the ones using all of the space, resources, air & we are also the ones causing all of the damage. We are now fighting to save ourselves along with all of the other creatures & I think we are doing a REALLY, REALLY bad job of it. Most of the politicians/newscasters/business etc do not believe or will not say they believe climate change, pollution etc is even a reality but as of this year half of the artic ice is GONE!!! How can you NOT believe all the world's scientist. I honestly fear for my children & grandchildren when I see what we have done & what we are leaving them. One of old am indian sayings is that we don't inherit this world from our parents we are borrowing from our children.

Sometimes I wonder if I live in imaginary world… thinking that I can save animals with signing petitions. These wonderful creatures are dying for real every day and I’m sitting in front my computer… helpless. This is sadness of the world, not just America.
Thank you Krista and Marilynn for the forward.

I've been signing petitions for years and every so often one will get noticed. We need to vote out those in these offices and elect people who support the American people and not just the wealth and big business.
