A Story By Arizona Author Penny Porter
I first read this true wolf tale several years ago when I purchased Penny Porter’s wonderful book, Heartstrings and Tail-Tuggers. And, it’s still my all-time favorite wolf story.
Since then, I’ve met Penny, and she quickly convinced me to join The Society of Southwestern Authors. I’ve attended one of their yearly writing conferences in Tucson, and while there, I was once again able to wander southern Arizona’s magnificent Madera Canyon – a true bird watching paradise, and the setting of one of my published books.
Penny now has a new website, and it’s marvelous, too. As I listened to the wonderful music on it while enjoying her panoramic photos of southern Arizona, I soon found myself reading her Tail of The Lobo once again, on the story section of her website.
And I even got a little misty-eyed reading it again since I’m such a big fan of the wolf, and I’ve been fortunate enough to see and hear numerous timber wolves on my many journeys to the great northwood.
The wolf in Penny’s story is a Mexican Lobo, and very sadly to many of us, there are now very few of these magnificent creatures left in America’s Southwest – most of them have now been killed off.
Our northern Timber Wolves are also now in great peril of extinction in places like Minnesota, The Rocky Mountains, and Yellowstone National Park. And, if Governor Sarah Palin has her way, there soon won’t be many Timber Wolves remaining in the vast state of Alaska, either.
Of the many animal predators which once roamed our vast nation, the one that has never attacked man is the Wolf - the very ancient and very noble ancestor of man’s best friend, The Dog.
There has not been one confirmed wolf attack on man in our country’s history; yet so many human beings today want to wipe them off the face of the Earth – forever.
I’ve linked Penny’s wolf story below, and I believe it’s a story well worth reading by anyone who cares about America’s extremely endangered wildlife, and by anyone who believes as I do, that we should be doing everything in our power to save our remaining wild animals from extinction – not joining in the barbaric modern day frenzy to annihilate them.

Having read my poem "Wolf", you are aware of my love and admiration for these beautiful creatures. What is happening to them in this country is unconscionable. Thank you for the link to Penny Porter's site and her enchanting and emotional it be. I continue to thank you for your stalwart position on protecting our wildlife!
Blessings and Love - Micke

Ed, you are a true friend of nature, God Bless You! Jasmin Horst

P.S. I love the picture, one of the best.

Oh brother! don't tell me that the Mex have also those choppers to go hunting lobos, I hope they are taken for dope smugglers and shot them down, because the two legged wolves will be never in peril of extinction.
