Where to watch President Medvedev?! [05 Feb 2011|01:02pm]

It's a shame. Prime Minister of the Astrakhan region, Konstantin Markelov hunt wolves with motorcycles and jeeps.
Sarah Palin called on to kill wolves to increase the population of caribou. Markelov kills them for fun.

Killer...Collapse )

Wolf-proof Fencing for Genesis Wildlife at Beech Mountain [20 Jul 2009|01:27pm]

Mods, please pull if not allowed:

My daughter sent out an e-mail to her friends and fellow athletes in fastpitch- I told her I'd post this to LJ. It concerns the wildlife sanctuary here on Beech Mountain, which has a new home at Eagle's Nest, and two wolves donated to them by Animal Control. They need to raise money for wolf-proof fencing of a quarter acre habitat. It will cost them roughly $7000. So, if you have a dollar, or even two...

Northern Wolves saved by court ruling [29 Jun 2009|06:56pm]


This makes me very, very happy.  No thanks to the Republicans, Democrats, Obama or Bush.  It takes a environmental groups filing a lawsuit to get the useless government to properly protect wolves.

Wolves return to federal protection


Wolves in the Great Lakes region once again are back under federal protection under a court-ordered settlement announced today between the federal government and wolf protection groups.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Humane Society of the U.S. agreed to the settlement after the groups filed suit to stop the federal government from handing wolf protection back to individual states.

There are about 3,000 wolves in Minnesota and more than 500 in each of Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. While indiscriminate wolf killing remained illegal under state wolf laws, all three states allowed for more liberal wolf killing by farmers and landowners.

The settlement comes in response to a federal court motion filed two weeks ago by the Humane Society of the U.S., the Center for Biological Diversity, Help Our Wolves Live, Friends of Animals and Their Environment and Born Free USA.

Today’s agreement marks the sixth time in the past five years that a federal government decision to strip wolves of Endangered Species Act protections has been stopped through legal action.

Caribou Barbie still gunning down wolves [25 Mar 2009|12:39pm]

Governor Sarah Palin's administration has launched a terrible new assault on wolves in Alaska. In just a few days, 66 wolves were killed by aerial gunners with high-powered rifles. Even worse, Palin's Board of Game has also approved the use of poison gas and deadly snares to kill defenseless wolf pups and their families in and around their dens.

Governor Palin is escalating her bloody war on wolves, and we need your help to stop her. Too many wolves have already died needless deaths – this brutal practice has to stop.

Sign our petition to send a message to Alaska Governor Sarah Palin urging her to end her war on Alaska's wolves.

(I personally don't know if any on-line petition actually changes any politician's mind. And I personally believe that Palin in particular won't be swayed by dissent: in fact, the more she gets, the harder she digs in her heels because that's what her ego requires. BUT I do sign these things anyway because it only takes a few minutes and it's better than nothing, and you never know. I also wrote a letter and mailed it, but not being from Alaska I'm sure they're laughing at it up there in "I can see Russia and you can't, nyah nyah" ville.)

So much for "change" [09 Mar 2009|08:20pm]

Now would be a good time to voice your opinion to the white house. (Contact Page: http://www.whitehouse.gov/CONTACT/ )

HELENA, Mont. — In a blow to environmental groups and a boost for ranchers, the Obama administration announced Friday that it would take the gray wolf off the endangered species list in Montana and Idaho, though it left the predator under federal protection in Wyoming.....


....In 2007, Gov. C. L. Otter of Idaho said he favored reducing the number of wolves there to 100 from more than 800. He also said he would be the first to buy a wolf hunting license.

So yeah... they think 1,500 is good enough west? Got to be kidding me. Minnesota has about 3000, Alaska 6-9000, and Canada has 55,000. Before we killed them off, 250,000 wolves roamed North America. Oh but no, the entire lower 47 (-MN) states can only hold a population HALF the size of my high school! There are probably just as many HUMANS in my small suburban city as their are wolves in all of Canada.

If they think that a wolf population in western states at 0.4% of their original north American population is appropriate along with leaving management in the hands of states that want to exterminate the species... well, that shows some pretty poor judgment.

Inactive? HA! [11 Feb 2009|01:42pm]

[ mood | bored ]

So... I've been told by a couple of people that this community is fairly inactive... so, seeings how I'm new... I shall keep you busy by posting on it a couple of times for the next couple of days.
Also, don't forget, feel free to add me!!!

Ok, so.... one career possibility that I've looked into for a couple of years is this; (please note, a more clear post about this is on my blog. Check it out).

To Work In Wolf and Bear Conservation In Canada

First, Salford university, and I would study for a BSc in Wildlife & Practical Conservation. I would do the 4 year course instead of the 3 year course, because then I could spend a year working somewhere without paying tuition fees (blatantly, I'd go somewhere like a wolf sanctuary in Canada!!!!!).
Then I'd continue to study for my MSc in Wildlife Ecology at Salford.
Eventually, after gaining my citizenship to Canada (which is surprisingly easy), I'd find a job in conservation while gaining my PhD. I've always wanted a PhD. It would likely be more to do with geography/environment. Perhaps;-
Natural Resources and Environmental Studies PhD at the University of Northern British Columbia, or
Environment and Sustainability
at the University of Saskatchewan.

So yes, this post is to do with wolves and with education. =)

I'm new [10 Feb 2009|10:39pm]

[ mood | thirsty ]

Hello, I'm new to this community and to livejournal.
I thought I should introduce myself, so here I am... introducing myself O_O

First off, my name is Briony, I'm 18 and from England.
My obsession of wolves started when I was very young, but I became much more ardent on the topic of wolves when I was around 11 or 12 years old - I was (and still am) inlove (when in love I mean completely and utterly crazy) with Siberian Huskies. Through reading the history of the sibe and how they came to creation, I studied more and more of the wolf.
Now, I read as much as I can on wolves (though, sorry to say, I'm not a fan of fiction). I was fortunate enough to meet and have a chat with Shaun Ellis about a year ago (if you are not familiar with him, I advise you look him up!). At the time I wanted a career working in Wolf Conservation. Though my feelings towards that career have changed, I still want to volunteer at conservation sites across America in the future, as a yearly hobby.
My life is about dogs. Siberian Huskies, Seppala Siberian Sleddog, Canadian Eskimo Dog (Qimmig), MacKenzie River Husky, Native American Indian Dog, Tamaskan Dog, Northern Inuit Dog, Utonagan. These are just a few breeds that I adore and have read much about. I've mentioned these because some, not all though, may appeal to anyone who loves wolves for their looks.
None of these are hybrids (although, some come pretty close...only separated by a couple of generations sometimes), some are more closely related to a Newfoundland than a Husky, but I wanted to share the names, just incase you take a fancy.

Also, on a separate note, if you are knowledgeable on dogs and are in a position to own large active breeds, then a couple of the dog breeds mentioned above could do with your help. They're in recovery from near extinction due to crossbreeding for centuries. Now, they are bringing back the numbers. Help out only if you are able to.


Please feel free to add me. It would be nice to get to know people on livejournal, as currently I know no-one!

Happy Trails xx

Canine Query [16 Jan 2009|04:11am]

I have a post in my journal that describes my experience with an unknown canine that I figured was a wolf. Can anyone tell me if these blurry pictures are of a wolf?

I should add that I live in eastern Ohio.

Sharing artwork [22 Nov 2008|07:31am]

[ mood | blank ]

This community needs to get updated more often.  Well since I don't really have anything discussion-wise I was just gonna post some of my wolf artwork. 

I'd also wold like to say that I'm now taking art requests for anything wolf related.  Just send me a message of what you would like and I'll try my best to do it.  I've just been out of ideas lately and I need something to do.  So please don't be afraid to ask.

Artwork here. Enjoy:
Wolves under the cut, watch out. ^^Collapse )

Design help [14 Nov 2008|03:14am]

I have had the rough idea for what I want to get as a tattoo for the past 2.5 years or so. I'm planning on going to get it within the next month and a half.

I've had 2 friends offer to draw it up for me. The first made 3 different sketches... and proceeded to lose all 3 of them while moving.

The second did one for me but the shape is fox-like, especially the head.

I'm looking for someone who can help me draw what I'm looking for. Yes, the artist could draw it up for me, but he also said he'd just make a transfer of what I had drawn if it was what I liked.

If you are at least decent at drawing and would like to help me by drawing it up for me, please let me know and I'll give you more specific details.

Sounding of the Call [31 Oct 2008|06:56pm]

[ mood | chipper ]

Hi I'm new here.  I really wish I would have found this community sooner because OMG I LURV wolves! Anyway, I thought I'd share an old poem I did for my first post. Let me know what you think.

The Sounding of the Call

The forest quivers with fright.
Dear run for cover and birds take flight.
With a coat of silver and eyes of gold,
The wolves appeared, so strong, so bold.
But one stood out more with his crimson stare,
Bringing the world to silence with one cold glare.
Then to declare his presence he looked to the sky
And filled the air with his mournful cry.
As if on cue the rest followed along,
Showing the world the famous wolf song.

Some pictures of the wolves at our zoo [27 Oct 2008|03:08pm]

I'm new here. I've always loved wolves and am glad to find a community devoted to these great animals. I was at our local zoo this weekend and took some photos of the wolves there, so I thought I'd share them here.

Digg this up: 14 wolf cubs shot in the head? Thank Gov. Sarah Palin. [12 Oct 2008|11:09pm]

14 wolf cubs shot in the head? Thank Gov. Sarah Palin.

latimesblogs.latimes.com — In June, after gunning down 14 adult wolves from a helicopter, officials from Governor Palin ’s Department of Fish and Game rounded up 14 orphaned wolf pups and methodically shot each one in the head in clear violation of a state law.

Wolf crossing a river (Photo: Corel) Help Ensure a Lasting Future for Wolves in Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies

In March 2008, the Bush/Cheney Administration eliminated Endangered Species Act protections for wolves in Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies. For months, wolves were slaughtered… until Defenders of Wildlife and our conservation allies prevailed in court and restored federal protections for these magnificent animals.

Now the federal government is rescinding its plan to remove wolves from the list of federally protected species and going back to the drawing board for a new plan to manage wolves in the Northern Rockies.

America's wolves need our help!

America's wolves were nearly eradicated in the 20th century.Now, after a remarkable recovery in parts of the country, wolves are once more threatened.

  • In Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies…the Bush/Cheney Administration has eliminated vital federal protections for wolves in Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies. The move officially opens the door to the shooting, trapping, and killing of up to 1,050 wolves.
  • In Alaska… state officials continue to allow airborne gunners to kill hundreds of wolves. Easy targets against the snow, hundreds of wolves have been shot from above or chased to exhaustion and then killed by aerial gunners who land and execute them at point-blank range.
  • In the Southwest…misinformation and anti-wolf sentiment runs high, with wolf recovery in Arizona and New Mexico limited to a defined area if the wolves set up territories elsewhere, they are captured and returned.

Defenders of Wildlife continues the fight to promote commonsense wolf management, working with federal and state officials and private land-owners to ensure that science, not politics, guides decision-making about the future of these American icons.
