“When all the beasts are gone,


Man will die from a great loneliness of spirit;


For whatever happens to the beasts,


Will also happen to the man.”


 


  Chief Seattle


 


 


Spring has finally arrived in an extremely remote area of Alaska


And soon a pair of winter weary wolves emerge from their cozy den


Surely even our modern world would not consider begrudging them


A life in this uninhabited wild sanctuary until their days naturally end


 


The male wolf lovingly nuzzles his now pregnant mate


They playfully frolic all about in the sun and the snow


Suddenly the sound of a strange aircraft engine up above


Suddenly sheer hell and agony reign down on them below


 


The male wolf is killed instantly by these two aerial gunmen


The female lies gravely wounded helpless to now crawl away


The two happy gunmen soon land their aircraft and finish her off


What great sport these two humans have had this very joyous day


 


As these humans laugh shake hands and admire their day’s handiwork


Nine pups in the female’s body will never be born to live even one day


And even here in one of the last refuges on earth that these creatures had


With their lives – for human sport - these magnificent animals must pay


 


It seems that many modern day moose hunters in the vast state of Alaska


Were upset that timber wolves living there liked to eat moose quite naturally


So they cried foul and appealed to the politicians in this ‘last wolf refuge’ state


And once again Aerial Wolf Hunting is allowed thanks to Governor Murkowski


 


Even the most remote areas of our modern world have become far too savage


For earth’s endangered animals to continue living in peace and natural harmony


And although I’ve truly loved visiting majestic Alaska numerous times in my life


As long as this butchery continues it will never get another tourist dollar from me


 


 


Not that long ago, this type of human activity was against the law in Alaska; but its Governor has seen fit to cater to ‘sportsmen’ who have once again managed to brand earth’s endangered timber wolf  ‘a nuisance.’


 


Since the reinstatement of aerial hunting, hundreds of wolves have already been shot down from the sky – in an effort to artificially boost state moose and caribou populations – for the benefit of trophy sport hunters - who seldom eat their moose and caribou kills – and who don’t live in Alaska – so they can bag even larger trophies.


 


And the once great state of Alaska has also recently approved the baiting and killing of Grizzly bears. Unfortunately for Grizzlies, they happen to naturally eat moose and caribou, too.


 


Grizzly bears have already lost 80 percent of their home range – they simply cannot afford to lose any more.  This new Alaskan bear slaughtering program also allows the killing of sows and innocent young cubs.


 


 


Is There Not One Acre of Land Left


On God’s Once Very Vast Green Earth


That We Humans are Willing to Share


With Its Nonhuman Earthly Residents?


 


Are We Truly This Cold Hearted and Shallow?


And What Does the Future Hold For All of Us?


When Very Soon All the Wild Animals in the World,


Are Gone Forever – Due to Our Greed and Our Lust.


 


 


And now,


Both the sadness,


And the loneliness of my spirit,


 Increase with each and every passing day.

I cant belive alska is doing this. Its not the wolves fault that the moose are dieing its mans fault. Thier the ones killing all of the moose the wolves would be lucky to feast on one. I hate that people are so stupid that they cant even relize that its thier fault not the animals. Alaska should get a new govener, one that will stop the slaughter on the wolves grizzly bears and all of the other animals being slaughtered in alaska. I think that we need a prsident like that too that will help the animals more in all the ways they need to be helped. I hate all people who do not give damn about animals or nature. Its terrible i have 12 kids in my advosory class that think its good that the wolves and all animals for that matter are being killed for unreasonale reasons like "Oh thier eating all of the deer" how stupid is that man has killed twice as many deer as than wolves have and yet apparently thier to blame. instead of killing the wolves they should be inbreeding the moose, trying to up thier population it would help the wolves and supposedly help humans too. I cant even put how I feel about this in words it is just the most horrible thing I could possibly hear about. If you wouldnt want youer kids to be brutley killed while still in the womb jor at the beginnig of life or have them starve because thier parents were killed why do it innocent creatures, Gods creatures. Man isnt his only child his only creation the animals are too and so are the trees but people are just selfish and dont know how to care about anything but thier own kind. I abouslutly hate it and them (the people who do this). I thank poeple like you, trying to help make a diffrence in the way animals are treated. I would have never known about the alaksn alughters or the canandian seal hunt if it werent for you. Youre poetry is one of the things that is opening my friends eyes, having them see what I see and understsnd what I understand. I cant even begin how to explaine how thankful I am that instead of sitting around doing nothing you are helping. I want to be one of the few that opens peoples eyes on the peoblems, like you. Please never give up on helping and never lose hope on that there will be no futuer to the animal race of the world. I havent yet. there are times were I almost did but then I hear stories like the one about Furrby and I regain hope that one day there will a better kinder future for the animals, please keep hope. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't blame you for feeling as you do Ed! It becomes overwhelming!
I pray that there will be a solution found , but it's almost beyond hope because of the attitude of people today. They don't seem to care or revere anything at all anymore except their good times. Like the super bowl hunting, sex,drinking, partying! That's the extent of most young peoples thinking today. I fear for what will become of things when our generation is gone. When you go any place today no one knows what the hell they're doing. They do their jobs while discussing what's happening on the sitcoms. the college students know less than kids in seventh grade did twenty years ago.That's what a new article says on education. It's scary out there Ed and wolves are the last thing people will care about. It hurts me to say that , but it's true and it breaks my heart as it does yours, but we must not let them win by becoming useless like them! Be who you are and keep caring and keep telling us so we care! Thank you Ed!

You and Andy are high on passion right now... once passion goes for ANY worthy cause, then that is another light extinguished on the face of this earth. Whatever... this shocks me, Ed... Somehow I thought it was only the overcrowded mass-populated places that somehow "squeezed" out the rights of our animal neighbours. Now I see that mammon does indeed rule the world... even the "pristine" snowfields that visually one would imagine to be beyond reproach in this respect. Yes, ignorance and niavety such as mine probably contributes to the problem - but thank God for YOU and your fellow activists who constantly give us the wake-up call. Don't be lonely Ed... too many of earth's creatures are depending on you for Voice... LOL Kate xx

You all gotta write CC to the press to Governor Murkowski, telling him bout the forth coming protests... If we can stop the religous hatred bill, then you can stop this blood thirst of lunatics!!

Ed, I got chills reading your write. Truly Man is the most unethical and chillingly wasteful animal on earth. They who are like this deserve the world they will inherit, but what about those who are mindful of the Universe and try to live in peace with nature and her creatures? Unfortunately, if we cannot stop the brainless, we too will suffer a like fate. A powerful, timely write.

It is true Ed, we human beings are the most despicable, wanton killers and murderers on Earth...no wonder God is dissapointed in us all !
Once you start interfering with the Balance of Nature for material gain, then you are playing with fire, a dangerous fire that has a knock on effect, throughout the chain of evolution.
Lets hope and most of all pray, that Intelligent Design becomes the focal point for turning around the failings of this Secular and Power Hungry World !
