Please help me, I posted something about my wolfdog having being sold to someone without my permission. And I'm desperately trying to find him and get him back. If you could reblog the story on my page about it, I'd appreciate it so so much :/
Have you ever read The Sight by David Clement-Davies? It's all about wolves and is one of the main reasons I fell in love with them. :)
No, I haven’t, but I’ve heard about it several times! It sounds really good, but as I know it isn’t translated to my language and I don’t feel my english enough good to read it in the original language… :/
Hello there. I've been watching this debate from afar and I just wanted to say that I think it is amazing that you post the "questions" from both point of view, and that you answer to all of them politely even if you do not agree with what they are saying. It takes a strong person to do that. Keep up being awesome! :)
Hey! Thank you for your nice words! It’s not a big deal… :) I think the only way to make a clear view of a problem, to let know both side of it. I just like to have a wide point of view! :)
There is a lot to understand about the delistment of wolves. A lot of people only dwell on the fact that wolves are killed. BUT without the wolf management plans there would have never been a wolf reintroduction in the first place. We live in a world overpopulated by humans and unfortunately it means that you have to come to a happy medium with both wolf and the human worlds. You have to give a little to get a little. Sure some wolves are sacrificed, but it is for the good of the species.
I agree with what skyblossomwolf said. I don't think that anon realizes that this opens up the opportunity for wolves to be hunted right back to the endangered status that had them protected in the first place. It's just going to be a vicious cycle if it keeps up like this.
Sooo guys, I see you have quite a lot of different opinion about this thing. I don’t wanna make an opposite between you because of that. I think we just all want to keep their safety, but we’re different, and have different thoughts. I’ll post all of the messages I get about this thing, but I think we all should make our opinion, and deal with the other’s.
If you are ever interested, I wrote a research paper dealing with the reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone and arguing for their continued protection. Just stopping in 'cause I saw the other questions
I’m very curious, what’ll be the main deal about them. Hope it’ll be a good decision, which will keep the wolves in safe at the end.
About what one of the anons said about rejoicing of the wolves being delisted, I don't think they understand that by them being delisted, they are now being hunted. Pups, pregnant mothers, whole packs being wiped out right now. It's such a shame.
I think the nature can do it right - nature can select the old and weak ones, and protect the powerful and young population - humans just hunt down them, mainly without selection, and yeah, sometimes they kill pups and pregnant mothers too, which is awful.
gotta say you and lunaticwolfe are 1 of the most known blogs there is, theres a fuckyeahwolves but your more known lol
Really? Lol I didn’t think, that my blog is so huge and well known, but if it’s the situation, then I think I’m very lucky! I love the wolves to the death, and I also love you guys, I think don’t deserve this much great followers, like you! The only thing I can say, that thank you, being my friend, being the friends of the wolves!♥
This might be kind of delayed but I wanted to respond to the anon who comments on the good side of wolves being delisted-the issue is that the management of the wolf population is being handed over to the states, rather than the federal government, and unfortunately the majority of people in said states are very anti-wolf and are coming up with 'management' plans that could easily kill off 2/3 of the wolf population in only a few months. which, in the end, undermines all of the hard work.
I think people need to realize, that the only way is to live near the wolves, not against them. Because we can do this, just… we have to try!
Just to comment on the previous question you were asked, though it is a positive things (that wolves are no longer considered an endangered species) isn't it too soon? I'm not sure what the current population of wolves is, so maybe it is at a safe number.
I thought this so, but now I’m not so sure anymore… I guess the different wolf species are still in danger, but some smaller populations could grow higher than the allowable limit.
I really do not understand why everyone is upset and crying about wolves finally being taken off the endangered species list. Trust me, I love wolves more than your average person, but everyone is looking at the de-listing as a negative thing. Instead of crying we should be rejoicing! All of our hard work has been successful with wolf reintroductions and populations have been continuously growing. THIS IS GOOD. The fact that wolves will no longer need the protections of the Feds is wonderful!
You’re right, Anon! You have got another aspect, maybe a bit more optimistic, than the others. :)
I was just saying that to my girlfriend (about the human population). While I'm an anarchist and believe in a free society, I feel like the only reason we hunt is because the animal population inconveniences us, which in all regards is a selfish and arrogant motive for killing anything.
Maybe there is an other way, to keep our houses safe from them, but till then the wolves are those, who aren’t safe from ourselves…
It's mainly the ranchers and people who hunt for sport who have the problems with wolves being around. Until they learn that coexisting with them is the best thing to do, and until the U.S. Fish & Wildlife service stops being a dick, wolves are gonna have to tough it out while they're off the list :/
Sport-hunting is one of the most disgusting and meaningless thing I have ever met. If you hunt something, that you’ll eat - then okaaay, it’s a meaning, but wolves?! For their fur or sg?! Never gonna understand…
Humans are a species of animal. If we try to distance ourselves too far from nature, that's when ideas of "controlling nature" arises. Our food, or materials, are dependant on natural resources. I would actually say, that if there is any species that really needs to be controlled, it's the human population. Too bad other animals don't have clever traps or guns. ;)
Totally agree! :) Only we have the weapons to destroy our- and themselves… :/
