I am happy to report that everything came together and my interview with the Wolf and Wildlife Action Group (WWAG) article is published on the Examiner. The response has been swift and spirited with my greatest one day readership of any article I have written as of this time. It seems the subject has struck a nerve.
It is fascinating that no other animal evokes such emotion as the wolf. Most people are captivated by its majestic beauty and freedom. Few other creatures are as photographed as the wolf. However, just as the animal is loved by the many it is despised with a pathological hatred by the few who have somehow interjected themselves into positions of power and authority and are determined to wipe the wolf off the face of the earth.
I am saddened to report that the very day that my article was published, fresh images of bloody dead dogs crossed my news feed following a vicious wolf hounding attack, probably in Wisconsin where this sadistic activity is legal, even encouraged. There are also reports that a new wolf and coyote slaughter contest was approved in Idaho complete with wildlife officials encouraging children to join in on the bloody fun.
I am astonished at the ignorance and stupidity of an entire fringe of our modern society that seems to believe that an entire species of animal is lurking in the woods with a plan to cause problems for humans. Such an evil plan that the normal rules against animal cruelty for rest of society are suspended for their holy war on the wolf. Rules that have landed many dog fighters in prison with felony convictions do not apply in the war on the wolf. Dog fighters are considered some of the most despicable of all people for their cruelty, yet this fringe group of so called hunters is given a pass.
Perhaps the war on the wolf is allowed to continue because the word hasn’t gotten out to enough good people in this country. Stay tuned as the WWAG continues its war against cruelty. There will be more campaigns at the capitals of the wolf killing states and I will be publishing more interviews on the Examiner.
