Now read my location.
Thems is the big bosses and the large corporations run not only America now but the world.
The cattle industry are, next to bankers, energy and pharmaceutical companies, some of the biggest and strongest lobbyists and "campaign contributors
- thus they have bought our government and now run it primarily, not "The People".
As far as wolves, I was lucky enough to meet one back about 48 years ago in the wild. No, he didn't rip me apart, bare his teeth or growl at
me............he wagged his tail (yes just like a dog) and the forest ranger later while almost having a coronary told me he was a Timber Wolf.
Almost had a stoke when he came across me (little kid) giving this big guy a good scratching - his fur was luxuriously beautiful and soft.
The wolf was a lot bigger then me, I was around 11? and quite thin..........he was double my weight, very big guy. Laid down and wanted me to rub
My girlfriend says this was my Totem Animal (she is a Native American).
He licked my hand and looked into my eyes. His eyes were amber and the minute I looked into his eyes, I knew he wasn't just a big Husky type dog.
The cattlemen will get their way - beef, sheep and pigs are BIG BUSINESS.
We slaughter and eat millions of domestic animals a day, every day. And yes I know what I am talking about because I use to work for a service TPA
Firm that did the WC Insurance for these companies and we're talking millions of domestic "meat" animals each day........meat is big business.
As long as we support eating meat, you support this industry and as long as you support this industry, you support their Big S lawyers and "campaign"
(bribes) in DC.
No, I no longer eat meat of any kind. When I did eat chicken we ordered from a organic farm in our state that employed electrical
fencing..............put up a good electric fence period, problem solved. But that costs the costs of "profit".
The one I met was truly a smart, noble creature. They need a big, really big protected area where there is the normal ecological balance in place.
Don't see it happening because people don't care about anything but themselves by and large.
Good post bringing this to the forefront.
If I were asked what was my most religious experience, it would have to be the day I bent down and petted a wolf and looked into his eyes.
BTW: Almost all dogs come from wolves.
If we loose the American Timber Wolf, or any of the wolves, we will have lost more then we realize.
We're already loosing much of our animal life on this planet.
