That was encouraging. I guess you could say everything has it's place and purpose. I really liked the notice that the wolf is a top predator, and
pretty high on the food chain. I also found it interesting that it was not so much the thinning of the herd but the controlling of the actions of the
herd that had the greatest impact.
Not to get off the topic. But it can't help but make you think about that ultimate top predator, the highest on the food chain, mister know it all
himself, mister control it all himself, you know who, that's right. And when you start talking numbers as in wolf verses us, what kind of impact are
we really talking about?
But the most important lesson.. Well I'm not sure what the most important lesson is.
I wonder what the latest studies are on system changes and the effects on the top predator? I'm assuming they are adverse.
But like I say it's encouraging. The movements of a living system are powerful, indeed irresistible.
In defense of humans, however, I couldn't help but feel the degree of difference in the power and capabilities of man and those of those lower on the
food chain. Perhaps that old fashioned Yankee ingenuity and our ability to tinker will keep us in good stead. We're counting on it.
