Only a mountain has lived long enough to listen objectively to the howl of a wolf.
Aldo Leopold

We reached the old wolf in time to watch the fierce green fire dying in her eyes... There was something new to me in those eyes-- something known only to her and the mountains. I was young then, and full of trigger-itch. I thought that because fewer wolves more deer that no wolves would mean hunter's paradise, but after seeing the green fire die, I sensed that neither the wolf nor the mountain agreed with such a view.
Aldo Leopold

L. David Mech

We have doomed the Wolf not for what it is, but for what we have deliberately and mistakenly perceived it to be.. the mythologized epitome of a savage, ruthless killer.. which is, in reality no more than a reflexed image of ourself.
Farely Mowat

The wolf is kept fed by its feet.
Russian Proverb

Anyone who has ever heard it when the land was covered with a blanket of snow and elusively lighted by shimmering moonlight, will never forget the strange, trembling wolf cry.

loyal partners, create hunting communities
and demonstrate affectionate patience in pup rearing.

Each wolf had a place in the whole and yet retained his individual personality.
Perhaps it was their great, romping, ridiculous sense of fun.
Perhaps it was some celestial link with the winter night skies
that prompted the wolf to lay his song on the icy air.

and the wolves once ranged from the Arctic to the sub-tropics,
there was much to learn from them.
Is it any wonder that the myths of many tribes characterize the wolves
not as killers but as teachers?

    There is a war raging and the Wolf is the only looser.
    If all the number of people who read White Wolf Page find the site to comment on De listing and fill out the spaces asked to oppose this we could maybe turn this around.
    Great numbers would show the people involved that we are not fooling.
    Mean while even tho most do not want to see or hear about it, atrocity's of unbelievable amounts are being rained down on the Wolf.
    If you want it to stop we must all voice that this is unacceptable.
    We are the majority that do not want this to happen.
    But if you do nothing to help then you may just see the Wolf go Extinct in the lower 48 states in our lifetime.
    The Mexican Wolf is already there at critically endangered .
    If you really love Wolves.
    Do something.
    This is not a Disney movie.
    We have the power to have a happy ending.
    If not we let this ending be one of the greatest tragedy's in modern times.
    Write an E-Mail to your congressman/Senator.
    I'm not preaching I am just trying to have you help everyone that is already writing letters/E-Mails.
    The de listing has been wrong from the start.
    Show them you know this is wrong.
    Thanks Lonewolf

    Great quotes describing the greatness of this creatur! It's a pity that in a country that stands for the rights of any living thing, the wolf is considered unworthy of that. I am signing petitions, adopted a pack and have become a member for years to help and I hope many join me to protect and respect such beautiful animal animal. I wonder why Florida hasn't considered killing all alligators??
