Wolves are my absolute favourite animal
|I had this as my desktop background all Winter|
Don't get me wrong, I adore other animals like horses, dolphins, otters, red pandas etc but none of them compare to wolves in my eyes. I just think wolves are beautiful, strong, and intelligent creatures.
I love how they can survive on their own but that they thrive in a pack. I love how they are one of the few mammals out there that has a family mentality and that they have a hierarchy system of an Alpha male and female and that they will mourn for a fallen member.
I watched a recent documentary called Land of the Lost Wolves where wolves are slowly reintroducing themselves to the Cascade mountain range in America and the locals are not happy about it. One guy started ranting about how they are evil killers and showed pictures of a mauled deer. What the fuck is he expecting them to do? They are hunting to survive just like a lion would hunt zebra! I hate how wolves are portrayed as evil by hunters, especially in America. Now I understand if they are killing your livestock or are too close for comfort to your children, by all means protect yourselves. But do not go out and deliberately hunt them just because you do not like them.
