Wolves are often portrayed as big and bad in fairytales – but these beautiful creatures are actually a threatened species in the United States. In the 17th century there were 2 million wolves in North America, but as of last year that population dwindled to 5,379 – and their numbers could continue to decline if wolves in the lower 48 states lose endangered species protection. The Center for Biological Diversity just released a new infographic that details the plight of wolves across the States – check it out after the break!

    Having had the pleasure of owning a female wolf (harvested, from Northern California Marijuana Growers by my former partners son)and a gracious local veterinarian who registered her as a wolf-hybrid. We cannot believe the ignorance of those that choose to hunt and destroy one of natures most wondrous creatures. The Wolf loves mankind, is friendly to all, but dogs who dare touch their food supply, is courageous and defends smaller dogs, most interestingly they immediately adopt and accept cats and for some strange reason the cats know instinctively that the Wolf is not their enemy. Our Wolf would take nightly walks, with the cat and her kitten, for one to two hours at a time in the neighborhood where all accepted her and many provided nightly treats, she and the cat were able to know when traffic signals turned green and many local residents and strangers would stop their motor vehicles to capture this unusual combination with cameras. Mocha Latte our Wolf lives, for three years, she was shot to death protecting my former partner, from an armed robbery. She was able to attack and kill the Robber before she died of a mortal gun shot wound. The entire neighborhood was sadden by her passing. We were fortunate to have learned so much, from our treasured traveler in life.
