Wolves: Those Who Have and Those Who Have Not

It would appear that people are blind when they want to be. Here are two distinct differences between how people who don’t have to live with wolves and romanticize about them and those that have, for centuries, lived with and dealt with wolves.

Some in Scotland want to have wolves “reintroduced” saying wolves are, “gentle and very loyal creatures.” And that, “I think getting wolves back into the wild cannot harm anyone.”

In Russia, where people have, for centuries, learned of the reality of living with wolves and have come to understand that the ONLY way to deal with the animal is through strict controls – meaning a killing of thousands of them when conditions dictate.

RT.com has an article and a video showing the problems Russia is facing with wolves and the call for killing about 3,500 wolves, as well as rewards being offered for help in getting the job done.

Like Scotland, here in America, the romanticists think we should cuddle up with the nasty, disease infested killers, much because neither place has much history, or any that wants to be remembered, in living with wolves. And yet we refuse to take a lesson from places like Russia to see the realities of wolves.

Willful blindness.
