The wolves need your help!!!
Raise awareness by flagging this thread.
When it comes to putting down the BBC I'll always be first in line, but, through gritted teeth I have to say - Thank you BBC for showing this.
You can watch the program by visiting the BBC website. Its in HD too.
It tells the story of a small pack of wolves they have named The Scout Pack because they are bravely making their way back to their homeland, some
have already been shot.
It really is a Must Watch program. Its in two parts so make sure you find both of them.
All the pics were taken from the program, I've adjusted some for the purpose of this thread.
Oh joy!!! I've just found them on youtube. Embeded at the bottom of this post.
Also on the BBC site HERE
The red area shows where wolves used to roam...
then the Europeans arrived and millions of wolves were exterminated...
Now the wolves are returning to the land that is rightfully theirs (red = wolf sightings)
However!! People like the man below want to exterminate them again. I'll quote what he said.
"If the devil had an animal its the Canadian wolf"
"We're out to get rid of Canadian wolves"
"We'll take them with dynamite, AR15's, ANYTHING goes when your hunting wolves"
This guy says..
"We'll hunt them"
"We'll Trap them"
"We'll Poison them"
This is what happened the last time people like those two above roamed loose on the land.
I'm sorry for including this image, normally we don't need stuff like this in our heads, but this IS what we'll see again if people like those above
get their way.
Why are people like those above so afraid of wolves?
Could it have anything to do with all those childhood stories that feature the BIG BAD WOLF?
The Wolf is an essential part of the environment. Without wolves Deer populations get out of control.
Without wolves the Deer have nothing to fear and do not move about so much. This leads to serious overgrazing until only bare rock is left, only then
will they move to another area.
The overgrazing destroys the environment that would normally support many other creatures who nolonger have shelter and food.
A few more clips from the program.
I love the black ones, Isn't he beautiful.
The fantastic Husky team. During the program the camera crew tried howling in an attempt to get the wolves to howl back, they did, but the thing that
made me smile was watching the Huskies who also started howling along with the camera crew. You really must watch the
One of the wolves howling back at the film crew.
The program is full of fantastic shots like this one. And its all in HD
Six months old and very very close to California.
This is the lady behind the research of the wolves. She's five months pregnant and still out there tracking them. If you know her give her a great big
hug and a thankyou.
Incase anyone feels inclined to say "but we have to protect our live stock" I say the following.
1. Your correct, you should protect your stock. Use some of the profits you gained from your sales and put up some fences.
2. I fear for the health of the wolves should they eat the meat you have pickled in Monsanto chemicals so please keep your livestock in a secured area
so they cannot harm the wolves.
3. Grow crops not live stock. A field of wheat uses ALL the carbon within a meter of the ground in just FIVE MINUTES.
4. Grow crops not live stock and we can FEED THE WORLD.
5. The wolves were here long before you were even born.
To our total shame we don't have a single wolf left in the UK, but you guys have a chance to have these magnificent creatures back on your land. For
the sake of the wolves flag this thread. The more people that are aware the less chance those above have of getting their wish to exterminate them.
Several years ago the very cruel SPORT of fox hunting was banned in the uk. As the new laws that prevented fox hunting were making their way through
the legal system the MSM suddenly and very loudly filled our lives with an absurd story of a child being attacked while it slept at home in its
bedroom by two evil vicious fox's. I say absurd because thats exactly what it was. But it showed just how powerful the hunting brigade are.
Not only did the MSM run this absurd story, they KEPT on running it.
Don't let them get away with it in your country.
To those two ....holes pictured above. I hope you'll wake some night to find this guy standing over you.
