Defenders of our Wilderness

Wolves in Minnesota stand at the forefront of our wilderness, a wilderness that is increasingly under stress from development.  That development includes unsustainable practices of mining ore and delivering crude underground in pipes through the heart of our aquifers in this state.

Wolves, in fact, create a healthier more viable world by gleaning old and diseased animals from the stock of deer, moose and other prey.  As hunters’ traps are set out, how many domestic animals will be killed again this coming hunt.

These creatures are an apex preditor and, therefore, not like any other fur-bearing animal – rabbit, fox, beaver …. and yet the Minnesota legislature decided to list them as small game, refusing, as well to stand by the promise of a five-year hunting moratorium until numbers and viability of wolf populations in this state could be determined.

Trophy hunting and the destruction of a treasure like this should be haulted and our priorities reconsidered as we all stand at a crossroads.  What will we choose?
