Coyotes, normally scavengers, go kill people's dogs and cats and sometimes children. The local coyote population is then researched, and the next time something happens, boom coyotes die. The public and people who kill them do not cry and whine saying "Oh wolves are special, I love them, how can you do that you cruel asshole blahblahblah." But when wolves kill several head of cattle in a small amount of time, and the rancher hunts one or two of them down with permission from the government to do so, people go absolutely insane.

That's too bad. I remember reading a book when I was younger about the cruelty of wolves in the wild. I remember HATING wolves and wanting them dead for their torturous behaviors... Then I found out a lot of what was in that book presented as FACT was FICTION.
I guess you could say God is weeding out what is essentially useless and "filler" emotion-which I have to say-is prevalent in many wolf lovers. They are to be respected, admired, loved and even bonded with, but anything in excess of that is useless to you and the animal.

Thanks for the compliment Op, I appreciate that.
So happy Mishomi has you. His life is better because of you.

At least you're capable of maturely looking past your feelings and admitting that entering a wolf enclosure is not a game, as some people seem to want to think.
