It's Wolf Awareness Week!

You stand a better chance of getting hit by a meteorite than being killed by a wolf.
Although wolves are large, powerful animals that could kill humans, they do not. According to a 2002 study about wolf conflicts with humans, there is no documented case of a healthy, wild wolf killing a human in the United States. By comparison, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate between 10 to 20 people are killed and 4.7 million attacked each year by man's best friend, the domestic dog.

Well folks, it's officially Wolf Awareness week and for those of you who don't know what that means, well - read on...

Wolves have played an integral role in the development of North America and it's important to preserve this noble animal. We have an entire mythology built around them (some good, some bad) but it's time to start building awareness about the real nature of these animals. Wolf restoration efforts help to ensure the wolf's long-term survival, contribute to a healthy ecosystem and provide cultural benefits.

IF you're interested in learning more about wolves, check out these great fact sheets from the Defenders of Wildlife:

Gray Wolf | Red Wolf | Mexican Wolf

There are some great "wolf events" coming up in your area, so check this calendar to see what you can attend. It's important to defend our wildlife, especially our wolves, given that we have an avid wolf destroyer running for VP. Here's the calendar:

This week, we're going to be spending some time discussing wolves: learning about their heritage, understanding their behavior and identifying the role they play in our lives - even in our lives today. I hope you'll join me for this informative series. Check

Wolves have played an integral role in the development of North America and it's important to preserve this noble animal.

And it's a damned shame that politicians like Alaska's Governor are once again attempting to wipe them off the face of the Earth.

Wake Up, America - and learn why we need to protect them.
