Words of Wolf Wisdom from Hay River, NWT

By James Beers

Words of Wolf Wisdom from Hay River, NWT

The sort of incidents reported by THE HUB newspaper in Hay River happen in The Lower 48 States and now in Europe more than is reported.  This is so for a host of reasons.

The fact that this took place near Hay River, NWT in Canada (South across the Great Slave Lake from Yellowknife) makes it different from The Lower 48 States only in the fact that wolves are harassed more (hunting, trapping, protection of property, self-defense) in NWT and therefore are less likely habituated to people that never threaten them in that sparsely settled landscape.  Recognizing that fact, should give pause to Lower 48 State and other rural residents in settled landscapes that are increasingly living amongst wolves that go near homes routinely and through towns at night as they forage and explore communities and residences much as happens in the settled landscapes of parts of Russia and (now) Europe.  If wolves in very sparsely settled landscapes like Hay River and the (mentioned) Alaskan Peninsula will attack humans; how much more likely are more habituated wolves in Wisconsin (Green Bay lady?), Minnesota (USFS Campground on Lake Winnibigoshish), Saskatchewan (Kenton Carnegie 2005), Idaho (Craters of the Moon?), Oregon (elk hunter one week ago), Greece (see my Wolves and Pillows article of 21 OCT.), Germany (some being investigated currently) and elsewhere to attack and kill humans (especially the elderly and the young)?

Note the sentence in the article by “a carnivore biologist with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources in Yellowknife” that, “In general, I’d say a wild animal that hasn’t been close to people is pretty leery, pretty cautious and stays clear.”

What goes unsaid in this doublespeak found even in the Far North is, that “a wild animal that is close to people (as is the case in the settled landscapes of The Lower 48 States) is not ‘pretty leery, pretty cautious and stays clear’”.  In other words, the more habituated to people is the wolf; the more dangerous is the wolf to the people!  Therefore the more settled the landscape, the more dangerous are wolves or bears or cougars in such landscapes for that matter.

The reason this is not believed by the urban public is due to more than years of animal rights propaganda about benevolent wolves being somewhat like unicorns flitting about the countryside eating only non-native plants while protecting lambs, calves and little children.  The reason this is not believed is because it is neither reported nor discussed.  On the rare occasion of being reported (see my Two Lucky Kids article of 1 Oct.) the encounter is presented as a rare glimpse of a benevolent Mother Nature worthy of mention on Sesame Street.

It is not mentioned whenever possible because to recognize its existence is to question allowing  the government to forcibly plant and protect wolves in the settled landscapes of The Lower 48 States and then having to ask yourself, “ Who is then responsible” if:

–           A single Human is maimed and/or killed?

–           If livestock losses to wolves decimate livestock producers’ livelihoods?

–           “     “            “         “   “       “            “      rural families and economies?

–           “     “            “         “    “      “             “     local government revenue and the political power of local people?

–          If meat prices spike and become prohibitively costly due to wolves”

–          If dog owners’ property (watchdogs, guard dogs, hunting dogs, pets, show dogs, guide dogs, etc.) are killed or maimed by wolves?

–          If game animals from moose and elk to prairies chickens and grouse are no longer able to support hunting and hunters along with their license fees (that support the “Conservation/DNR/F&G” agencies), disappear?

–          If hunting and trapping are then so rare that there are no longer young men enthused about paying for or profiting from applying thenecessary annual  (and prohibitively expensive) controls of wolves, bears, cougars, coyotes, and wintering herbivores?

–          If dog packs that trail deadly predators after a human attack/death are no longer available when such animal needs to be tracked down?

–          If (actually when) the truth ever emerges that wolves are not only very serious carriers and vectors of over 30 deadly and debilitating (to humans, livestock and wildlife) diseases and infections ever begin spiraling into an outbreak?

–          If it is realized that the increasing cross-breeding between wolves /dogs /coyotes is not only the most real threat to the very existence of the wolves of such faux importance in The Lower 48 States, but the Raison D’etre for the emergence of a new breed that is even more dangerous or destructive than the current breeds of this large and varied species?

The ANSWER to “Who is then responsible”, is; No One!

The state guys (many of whom have been lying and dissembling for years about wolves) will blame the federal guys that forced wolves into “their” state.  The federal guys that have been profiting big-time (unlimited powers, promotions, bonuses, enhanced retirements, public adulation in the press, etc.) will blame “the law” and “the politicians”.  The politicians (who made millions fro9m lobbyists and who reaped urban votes) will blame the scientists for faulty “science”.  The “scientists” (who have profited for years from grants and tenure thanks to wolves) will blame the Non-Government Organizations like Defenders of Wildlife, Wildlife Federation, Center for Biological Diversity et al for “distorting” and “manipulating” the “science”.  The “Environmental”/”Animal Rights” NGO’s will simply shrug, count their money and go to some secret meeting with the federal bureaucrats and politicians about how to ease, buy and “take” the remaining remnants of private property left in The Lower 48 States abandoned and unused except for the wealthy in their mansions with views no longer marred by timber cutting, grazing livestock, crops, canoeists, campers, or the sounds of rifle and shotguns.

So Lower 48 State newspapers and news shows either avoid (when possible) or dissemble any negative incidents much like terrorism reports or select descriptions of urban perpetrator characteristics.  They do this with the attitude once spoken by Jack Nicholson and here only directed to the general public about wolves in this instance, “You can’t handle the truth”.  Like all those in the preceding paragraph, after years of distorting the truth about the costs and dangers of wolves and the constant denigration of those challenging the government/NGO version of wildlife in settled landscapes; the media is a major conspirator in the wolf debacle and, like some Chicago Police Lt. during Prohibition that cannot tell the truth for fear of indicting himself, they chirp duets with the powers-that-be and do whatever it takes to survive.

Why Constitutional Amendments to “Protect” Hunting Need The Correct Language

Many states have tried, some have succeeded, in getting a constitutional amendment to protect the right to hunt, fish and trap…or at least they think they have. Truth is, very few, and perhaps no state, has made a success out of actually protecting and guaranteeing the right to hunt, fish and trap. Essentially what they have done is end up with legalese, fit only for the law profession, that says the state recognizes that hunting, fishing and trapping are long held traditions and these activities have been used as part of a game management plan. The new laws then make people think this tradition is being protected, when it is not. And here’s why.

As an example of the wrong wording in a right to hunt, fish and trap constitutional amendment, the state of Maine, over the past few years, has bounced around half-efforts to get an amendment passed. However, I have opposed all wording of this effort because it’s fake wording that fails to provide the protection that I believe most sportsmen want.

Without the proper, tough and direct language, while there may be recognition of how hunting, fishing and trapping have been a part of game management and responsible use of natural resources, all attempts have failed to provide language that forces the state, along with their natural resources departments. or fish and game departments, to manage all game species specifically for surplus harvests. I might point out that this kind of tough language is generally opposed by legislators and in particular heads of fish and game departments. The biggest reason is because most fish and game departments have already morphed beyond sensible and scientific game management in favor of environmentalism’s “Romance Biology” and “Voodoo Science.”

Without this kind of tough and direct language, fish and game departments and/or state governments, can end hunting, fishing and trapping at anytime. With a growth and power of the progressive Left, a totalitarian social effort to end all hunting, fishing and trapping, mostly driven by an extremely perverse animal rights society, not only are fish and wildlife departments gradually, and sometimes not so gradual, are becoming more anti hunting, fishing and trapping, but the general electorate can end hunting, fishing or trapping with one effort at the ballot box with zero consideration for science.

An example of that is seen in British Columbia, Canada, where voters have decided to ban grizzly bear hunting because it doesn’t fit their ideological narrative. As was said by Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development Minister Doug Donaldson, “[It is]not a matter of numbers, it’s a matter of society has come to the point in B.C. where they are no longer in favour of the grizzly bear trophy hunt.”

Certainly this reflects the desires of the people, a product of a totalitarian democracy of sorts (two wolves and a sheep discussing what’s for lunch), where a simple vote can destroy long held traditions as well as making a mockery out of wildlife science.

While there never exists any true guarantee of a right to hunt, fish and trap, one does have to wonder if this same kind of referendum would have even been attempted if a true constitutional amendment existed with real power that said it is the mandated function of government to manage all game species for the purpose of surplus harvest and use of natural resources.

It is often argued about whether wildlife is part of the public trust. In my 65 years of life, I do not recall anyone suggesting that viewing wildlife, even out one’s back door, should be stopped or that managers should grow game species to levels that would be harmful to a healthy establishment of animal species. Why is it then, as seems to be the way of the “new” progressive society, that society has little interest in the aspects of the public trust when it comes to the public trust involvement of hunters, fishermen and trappers? In their pea brains, hunters, trappers and fishermen are excluded from any participation in a public trust.

A classic example of totalitarians at work.

Next time anyone begins talking about another proposed constitutional amendment to guarantee the right to hunt, trap and fish, please take a little extra time and honestly ask yourself if what is being proposed will do what it is being sold as doing and is worth any effort to get it passed. Contrary to what the politician will tell you. something is NOT better than nothing.

But, isn’t it now just too late? Does there even exist enough people who aren’t mentally destroyed and manipulated with animal rights and environmentalism, along with Romance Biology and Voodoo Science?

OPINION: MNRF takes the road of junk science to forward their agenda

In my younger years growing up in Sundridge, the moose season fell on every even year and lasted a week. You bought your moose license and shot a MOOSE. There were plenty of moose and trappers harvested wolves and hunters harvested spring bears and laws were based on science and time-proven management practices. During this time the powers that be were the Ontario Lands and Forests, later changed to Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR). Recently renamed Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry.  Much has changed over the past two decades within what I once considered Ontario`s flagship ministry, for without our rich resources what does Ontario have to offer?

I have been deeply concerned about the direction this ministry has been travelling for some years now as laws are now being based on emotion and driven by special interest and protectionist lobby groups.<<<Read More>>>

Glyphosate Spraying Killing Whitetail Deer in New Brunswick

KJIPUKTUK (Halifax) — The Halifax Media Co-op has acquired a series of internal communications from New Brunswick’s Department of Natural Resources that comprise literally hundreds of pages of emails related to newly-retired, whistle blowing, provincial deer biologist Rod Cumberland.

These communications are interesting for a variety of reasons, the least of which because they provide an insight into the manner that the bureaucratic machine in New Brunswick is very much linked into streamlining their publicly-presented message with their counterparts in industry, in particular with the efforts of J.D. Irving.

Whistle-blowing scientists take note: Never underestimate your ability to send your former employer into reaction mode, with all the bureaucratic and corporate cooperation and message massaging that that entails.

Upon his retirement in 2013, Cumberland, with early assistance from the Conservation Council of New Brunswick, began to publicly rail against the effects of New Brunswick’s glyphosate application program, whereby, since the 1970s, an estimated 12,000 – 15,000 hectares of Crown land are sprayed with the herbicide per year. Glyphosate mixtures are applied to Crown land in order to eliminate hardwood tree species and select for softwoods, which are then largely used for pulp. Readers may be more familiar with agricultural applications of glyphosate, where it is consistently among the most highly used herbicides in North America.

Cumberland’s wedge issue was that glyphosate spraying in New Brunswick is responsible for the province’s dwindling white-tailed deer population, as it destroys their food supplies. He has, however, continuously highlighted the scientifically-proven detrimental health impacts of exposure to glyphosate mixtures, and has gone so far as to liken the future health-related fall-out from glyphosate applications in New Brunswick to “this generation’s Agent Orange.”<<<Read the Rest of Part I>>><<<Part II Can be Found Here…and there’s a link at the bottom of Part I for Part II.>>>

New Brunswick and Maine Share Deer/Forest Study

It sounds to me like these “biolojests” need to get out a little bit.

“They collared ten deer from each provider.  During this pilot they’ve received interesting and sometimes surprising results.  Kennedy told us that two mature (7.5 year old) does were killed by coyotes this year already, even before the first snowfall!  We all know that coyotes were voracious predators with a skill for chasing deer, but to hear that two healthy, mature deer were killed by coyotes without the aid of snow was surprising.”<<<Read More>>>

Why Blind Ignorance Persists, Blindly

I’ve sometimes asked when will the day come when people will discover the real truth about any issue? The answer, for anyone willing to do some historic investigation, is never. Here’s why.

If you are not willing to accept the fact that we are all brainwashed and programmed to act and react, void of independent thinking, there is little use to continue reading what follows. In essence, you are already beyond help. I’ll help explain why.

Everyone in this day and age of post normal everything, believe they know the truth. I say believe because that is precisely what is going on. People believe. They do not know. They do not have knowledge. They do not have an open mind. They cannot think. And so, they simply believe. It’s easier that way.

Eric Hoffer, author of the book, The True Believer, says that everyone wants to belong to something, to be on someone’s side, to feel important. Being a “True Believer” serves that role. True Believers take narrative that sounds wonderful and fits one’s ideology, whether they are conscious of what they are doing or not, and jump on a band wagon believing they have truth.

With a new belief, combined with a manipulated mind that will shut down to any suggestion of “new thinking,” how, then, does anyone break through that wall?

This is, not necessarily, a new thing. Recently I received a link to an article from a Canadian newspaper that looked back in history, to a time around the Great Depression, when the owner of the newspaper, Sault Star, offered a $100 reward for anyone who could prove to him that any person had been “attacked” by a wolf. The reward and attack criteria was limited to just Algoma.

First, here’s the quote taken from the newspaper in 1925: “This is to inform the public that the Sault Daily Star will pay $100 to the first person who can establish to the satisfaction of the editor that any timber or brush wolf has attacked any person in Algoma.” (emboldening added)

The obvious problem in this account of the person offering a reward, is that it has been established as a rigged system. Everything and any and all evidence becomes value-weighted to the perceptions of the newspaper. This is a clear example of a person’s truth is THE truth and everything else is wrong…even if it means refusing to accept any other information that might be contrary to his truth.

Second, to further exemplify the closed mind of the True Believer, who has already established the limits of any challenges to his truth, we discover that this same person decides to create “Wolf Week” in honor of his loving wolf; to educate people to the “truth” about wolves. But is the Wolf Week creator really interested in “educating” people about wolves, or is he more interested in drawing like-minded, non-thinking, brain dead people to HIS festival and keep it protected from anyone who might think otherwise?

The articles states: “During Wolf Week, Curran erected an arch at Bell’s Point that was two cedar poles topped with a huge howling wolf. The banner on the arch read “Respectable Strangers Are Welcome In This Town.”” 

It doesn’t require a Ph.D. to understand what Curran meant by offering a banner that read, “Respectable Strangers Are Welcome.” In other words, so long as you think and act like him and are a True Believer, eager and willing to discard all facts to follow the doctrine, presented as “truth,” you are welcome to his festival.

This kind of mind controlled ignorance about wolves was prominent in 1925 and today, we have regressed further and further into the abyss of clinging to the “truth” that fits the narrative of the True Believer. There is little hope for a bright future where only cultivated “truth” exists: and it exists because nobody wants to know the truth. It may be uncomfortable.

However, don’t think for a minute that this behavior is limited to those believing the wolf to be their god. Because this is a belief centered on politics and religion, automatically, due to brainwashing and mind control, an antithesis is established, functioning fully on a false paradigm of two sides. Nothing ever changes. One side or the other, disregarding all morals of decency and honesty, fall prey to the power of money and wealth, willing to bastardize anything normal and decent to prop up their truth, presenting it to an eager Press, seeking the establishment of credibility. Generally the one side with the most money and control over the Press, Science, Education and Politics, wins.

The result becomes, on one side we have tRUTH. On the other side, we have tRUTH. Stuck somewhere outside the realm of today’s controlling paradigms, populated with True Believers, is actual Truth.

But don’t go look!

Sensible Statement About Predators

“The issue is not wolves, it’s the combination of wolves, grizzly bears, black bears and cougars,” Bob Jamieson, a systems ecologist and environmental consultant, told the paper. “The prey species can’t handle the combined impact of those four animals,” he said. “A lot of people [blame] habitat problems because they don’t want [to] wrap their head around the predator issue.”<<<Read More>>>

Filth and Decadence to Prop Up Wolf Protection

It’s the way of the world. Filthy and perverted “Hollyweird” reprobates moronically speaking out against anything that someone has told them is inhumane treatment of animals, often while wearing furs and sporting alligator purses, etc. Treatment of animals is not “inhumane” because animals are not human and certainly are not men and were not created in that same image. If you choose to lower your standards to be equal to that of a filthy animal, have at it. None of this, however, stops the media from spreading and supporting the ignorance, hypocrisy and disgusting filth of Satan’s world. They are a large part of it.

I read an article yesterday that I just found so perverse I closed it out, because of my own desire to “come out of her.” And yet the topic and the approach bothered me. I feel it is important, if for no other reason, to try to expose the harvest of Satanic seed sowing. Perhaps, if just one person, can “come out of her” my tasks will not have been in vein.

The foundation of the article dealt with those upset because officials in British Columbia are killing wolves as part of their management plan partly to protect other threatened species, particularly those in danger from the actions of wolves. As is typically found in about 99.9% of media, we read about animals in a human context. The article isn’t clear as to the origins of the term, but those complaining use a term called a “Judas Wolf.” Evidently a Judas Wolf is some moron’s idea of one collared wolf used to “betray” the other wolves in his pack, i.e. giving up the location of the pack so government officials can more easily kill the wolves that need to be killed.

It’s not worth discussing the intellectual garbage offered by those who think animals are at or above the same social and ethical levels as man. Giving the action to kill wolves by the British Columbia government some sort of human characteristic, and in this case attempt to give it an extra bit of “umpf” by wrongly and ignorantly likening it to what tiny bit of Biblical history they might have remembered while studying to be a servant in Satan’s Service, is actually irrelevant. Scientific wolf management calls for the population control of wolves for the betterment of all species, including man, and it only makes sense that this task, like it or not, be carried out in the best way possible. If that results in using a collared wolf to locate the rest of the pack and destroying all in that pack, then so be it. Get over it. The wolves don’t know the difference…and I know for some this comes as a huge shock.

But here’s something that I don’t know just how much people can or want to see the disgusting nature of. In the article, it reads: “The wolf cull has been mired in controversy since it began. The province’s practice of using snipers in helicopters to gun down grey wolves has drawn criticism from the likes of pop star Miley Cyrus and film actress Pamela Anderson.”

This media outlet wants to support the idea that wolf management is not a good thing and so what better way to reveal their hand than to attempt to prop up their own perversion and misguided beliefs by invoking the names of two of the biggest and slimiest perverts of Hollyweird.

Somehow sane people are supposed to find comfort in having the support of Miley Cyrus and Pamela Anderson, standing up against sensible wildlife management? What? You can’t see my point? Miley Cyrus, once a Disney star (a great staging ground for Satan’s entertainment industry) has to her credit some of the most bizarre and perverse actions, enough to make any person with half a bag of morals vomit. She appears naked in public half of the time. She once staged an event where she, half clothed, appears to be giving Bill Clinton oral sex. She constantly grabs her crotch, kisses other women on the lips, eats fans underwear, and goes through the motions of having sex on stage (twerking).

Pamela Anderson, a woman who made her millions baring her breasts, is not much better. She once considered suicide because the renovations to one of her houses was costing too much and taking too long. All sane people think those things. She insists on only allowing her photograph to be taken by specific camera lenses, because those make her look better. She has tried suing people taking her picture with an “EYE” phone.

When you consider the combined mentality of these two bimbos and their entertainment history, only a brain-dead idiot would find any credibility in anything they had to say about wildlife management or even the treatment of animals. Perhaps the two would have more credibility if they went on stage and had sex with a wolf…but that would be inhumane treatment of the poor nasty dogs.

BUT DON’T GO LOOK!

Dogs as Sources and Sentinels of Parasites in Humans and Wildlife, Northern Canada

ABSTRACT

A minimum of 11 genera of parasites, including 7 known or suspected to cause zoonoses, were detected in dogs in 2 northern Canadian communities. Dogs in remote settlements receive minimal veterinary care and may serve as sources and sentinels for parasites in persons and wildlife, and as parasite bridges between wildlife and humans.

Participate in the Spruce Budworm public opinion survey

*Editor’s Note* – It is my opinion that this “survey,” like all surveys, is constructed for desired results. It is being sold as a means of “assessing public opinions and concerns” for a graduate student. The survey might help readers in a better understanding of a possible approach that will be taken IF and WHEN the spruce bud worm hits full force. Don’t think for a minute that your opinion matters in the grand scheme of things.

AUGUSTA – Participation in this Maine Forest Service survey will help inform public opinions and concerns on an issue which encompasses the economic and environmental impact of forests.
