Throwing in the Towel Over Wolves

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

An honest assessment of things tells me that it’s really the time to throw in the towel and mostly give up on any efforts to educate the public about the criminal enterprise that took place that led to the introduction of wolves into the Northern Rocky Mountains, the Southwest and Southeast, their destruction, spread of disease, loss of rights of people, the carnage surrounding property and property rights, and the list is nearly endless.

I have been covering this emotional catastrophe for so long now, I don’t even remember when I made the mistake of climbing on board the train to Hell.

Regardless, it’s been more than 20 years for certain, and in that 20 years, as I see it, only three things have happened. First, what began as a deliberate and misleading lie that the target goal for wolves would be 300 nasty animals, has now evolved into thousands, with diseased and hybrid mixes of fake wolves dumped all over the countryside.

Second, the anger and hate that divides both sides of the contrived “war on wolves” has only grown, and the end result brings us to the third event: The corrupt Government, in collaboration with the radical Environmentalists, have managed to convince the public that along with this fake “delisting” of wolves from the Endangered Species Act List, the local taxpayers must now pick up the tab for the Government’s “GI” wolf invasion and toxic fallout.

And that’s the full Monty!

In 20 years, absolutely NOTHING has changed that is positive…NOTHING. I can look back at everything that transpired during this time frame and I can see that I wasted my time. All there is left to brag about is a bigger catastrophe than when it all began. It only shows that there is far more power in government criminality than in the honest written word. I am not criminal enough to fight their fire with fire. Their day will come.

At one point during my tenure, I assumed a sense of pride in the mounting number of people and organizations that seemed to be taking up the baton that represented honest and sensible predator management, only to see it become some misguided bunch of renegades, who, in the end, claimed victory over being taxed more directly for the wolf destruction caused by a deplorable, illicit, and filthy rotten government action.

The mistake I made was believing that honest hard work, and a commitment to educate the public with Truth, would effect positive change.

The rose-colored glasses have been shattered.

The results remain hopeless. The belief hangs tight that to correct a rigged system it had to be done within the rigged system. That’s insanity. No more for me!

If after 20 years at work, an examination shows me that the only change was what got worse, then it is time to abandon this practice of insanity and move on.

I will post information about wolves that may come from guest columnists or briefly mention the insanity surrounding this contrived mayhem, but as a whole, I am finished. It’s time to practice what I preach and stop the deranged, preposterous, and senseless repetition of hoping something will change. It hasn’t and it won’t.

“I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost… I am helpless.
It isn’t my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don’t see it.
I fall in again.
I can’t believe I am in the same place.
But, it isn’t my fault.
It still takes me a long time to get out.

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there.
I still fall in. It’s a habit.
My eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault. I get out immediately.

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

I walk down another street.”
