Women have a natural way around the wolves-if fear is not involved. Can we change the way we look at the wolf by changing our old fear programming? And bring in new knowledge of wolves? Part one with Gale Motter of Wolf Park.
Gale Motter works at Wolf Park. Wolf park is a wonderful place for captive wolves and offers great education to the public and more. As Mission: Wolf travels across the country with ambassador wolves we try to make an annual stop at WolfPark. During our visit they open up their "Huge" dog pen for our wolves to exrcise in.
Gale is amazing around the Mission: Wolf wolves. This footage is from 2003 and includes Rami, Raven and Magpie. gale is so confident with the wolves, its as if she has been around them all their lives.
This video demonstrates how animals mirror or reflect the energy and confidence of the creatures they encounter.Wolves read and responds to our attitude. The confidence of one woman instills confidence and trust in the wolves. Raven reponds to Gale's calm and loving energy. The Mission: Wolf program reaches thousands of people in an effort to change human attitudes toward wildlife.
Most people react with fear and anxiety in the presence of a wolf.This is not a new "fear" that stems from a spur of the moment encounter with a wolf or a bad experience with them. Rather it is a very old "fear" programmed into us by generations that believed wolves were nothing but scary, blood thirsty monsters. Sadly, many people do not believe animals are capable of understanding human feelings or actions. This fear based programming has been passed down from generation to generation for centuries. As people learn to rely on their own instincts and use their body to communicate the basic messages we believe that conflicts will be reduced and eliminated.
The Native American Indian revered the wolf as a teacher. The white man persecuted the wolf to extinction in many places across the globe. It's time to change that programming of fear to tolerance and respect. Wolves still have much to teach us we only need to listen..
Women Who Understand Wolves will be a series of short videos showcasing confident and inspiring communication between women and wolves. These wolves are not pets. They live in a large natural habitat at The Mission: Wolf Sanctuary in Colorado. For More information www.missionwolf.com
