Exposing the Big Game

If I a flag to hang outside my house, it would be flying at half-mast today.

Today should be officially declared a day of mourning for wolves, in honor of Washington’s Wedge pack—brutally killed last week to appease an intolerant cattle rancher—and also a day of remembrance for all of the wolves across the country and throughout our history who were hunted to extinction in order to make room for modern humans and their chosen food species.

This whole thing brings to mind the first time I beheld the sight of wolves. Due to repeated persecution by residents of a nearby, decrepit mining-town-turned-tourist-trap on the Alaska panhandle, wolves hadn’t been seen around there for decades. Their surprise return that year was greeted with generous appreciation by an assembly of bear watchers and photographers who shared in my elation.

But the spectacle lasted only one short season; by late fall a…

    I am completely filled with sadness and devistated at the brutal and barbaric killings of such a majestic and beautiful creature. How can so many people with blood lust call it a hobby or say it is fun to kill wolves or any other animal? This isn’t just reading a book or going for a walk this is killing a living creature. It seems the madness doesn’t stop there as they pass on the tradition by teaching their children to do the same. Goodness, when is this insanity going to stop?

      There is something seriously wrong with those who derive pleasure from tormenting animals. When will our society wake up and realize this? Look at the outrage that sadist Michael Vick generated at his actions. Then look at what other sadists are allowed to do to wildlife each and every day. They make what Vick did pale in comparison. Each fall thousands of bears, mostly cubs, are blown out of trees here in Wisconsin and then allowed to be ripped to shreds by packs of vicious dogs. The hounders claim that this does not happen, but we have video evidence that it does. It is illegal to kill a wild animal with dogs, but it happens all the time and the DNR does NOTHING to stop it or prosecute it. If I have one mission in life it is to expose these monsters for what they really are. This site is the first step. Thank you for your comment.

    The wolf spirit
    The wolf spirit is like a beautiful song
    One can feel it forever, it is never too long
    The wolf spirit is like the freedom of clouds
    Hovering ever so gently, with head held so proud
    The wolf spirit dances in sunshine and rain
    In all four of our seasons, without any disdain
    The wolf spirit lives in the mountains up high
    Its grandeur is endless, it can touch the sky
    The wolf spirit belongs to all who live on earth
    It will live forever, no one can measure its worth
    KLK ♥
