“Take time to look, to observe. If you look you will become curious. If you become curious you will ask questions, and with every answer, be given more questions. As you learn, you garner a precious knowledge that belongs to you alone. With that knowledge you begin to care. If you care, you will not destroy.”

  1. If you want to play the conspiracy game I think there is a right wing conspiracy to hand all of our lands and resources over to corporations…

  2. It was implied, who else were you implying would kill a whole pack of wolves…you? Killing wolves that deided to eat privately owned livestock was a part of the plan. They were brought here knowing they would destrooy private property and would be killed. I guess you could say that those who wanted them brought in were in favor of killing some to have some.

  3. “Makes it a lot easier to unemotionally shoot en entire pack of wolves if you label them as indescriminate eating machines…”

    Don’t see anything about ranchers in there. Thats not to say that political pressure from ranchers doesnt precipitate into entire wolf packs getting killed. Last I checked, Wyoming was in America and i was an American…

  4. quote from stevec: “Makes it a lot easier to unemotionally shoot en entire pack of wolves if you label them as indescriminate eating machines…”

    Are you telling me that is how you view FWS?
    I am a midwife and a photographer, but I am a Wyomingite born and bred. This is our home that certain groups have decided to remake to fit their idea of paradise. We are all affected by the stuff you inflict on us.

  5. Where do I say a rancher kills a pack of wolves? And what is all of this “us” stuff. Last I checked you were a midwife and a photographer…

  6. Please provide me with the information about a rancher who has killed a whole pack of wolves. In fact tell me one thing that was in error.
    You are the one going on about us being blood thirsty killers and killing off packs of wolves.

  7. Can you say something profound instead of spouting off the same bull over and over? Any thoughts on the quote above? Did you even bother to read it? I really feel sorry for you… You are so closed minded…

  8. But……but, who has been killing whole packs of wolves and why? I don’t think ranchers have killed more than a couple of dozen at the outside in the last 12 years. Those who have killed whole packs are wildlife biologists who supposedly know all of the facts about wolves.

  9. Good quote. Sometimes I get the feeling people actively avoid asking questions and obtaining knowledge. Knowing you are doing something wrong can bring a lot of guilt. I worked with a group studying coyote behavior on the east coast. There was a lot of backlash from some people, hunters especially, against our research. I dont think they wanted to hear that coyotes were social, caring animals just like their dogs. They want to hate coyotes so they can feel like they are going out and are doing something good by shooting a bloodthirsty killer. Same in the west. People don’t want to learn about wolves or their benefits to the ecosystem because they may start to see that the way we treat the land (logging, drilling, ranching) is damaging and wrong. Makes it a lot easier to unemotionally shoot en entire pack of wolves if you label them as indescriminate eating machines…
