$10k Award for Information on wolf cub shooting

On October 13, a 6-month old Mexican Grey Wolf cub was shot in the head as he stood on the side of a dirt road near Hannagan Meadow in the forests of Arizona (yes, we do have forests here).

Wow. I'm at a loss for words. What kind of person would shoot a wolf cub like this? (And I'm going to leave a certain politician out of this for the moment, because that's a discussion for a later blog). 

The only good news is that the AZ Game and Fish Department is seeking information about the shooting and offering a $10k reward. Pretty good money in this economy to lay out the idiot who would do something as cowardly as this. What will they face as a penalty for destroying an endangered species? The maximum is a $75,000 fine and a year in prison. I, for one, would RALLY to be on that jury... And I'm not someone who enjoys spending hours in an enclosed environment, so that's saying something. 

Here's the thing, folks. If we don't start stepping up to take care for our wildlife and our environment, the results will be deadly. People need to start getting over their ridiculous superstitious beliefs about the "inherent danger" of wolves, and this false feeling of entitlement to the earth's resources that we all share needs to stop - we are merely guests in a world that we have little control over. Don't believe me? Check out New Orleans, stop by Galveston, evaluate the conditions (even today) in Au Nang.

Call it the Butterfly Effect, Newton's law of motion or Chaos theory. Who really knows what the effect of shooting a wolf today will have on the world tomorrow? 

If anyone knows anything about the tragic murder of the wolf mentioned above, I do hope you'll make the decision to turn this idiot(s) in. Who knows? You just might change the world in the process...

I truly feel sadness for future generations, who won't get to see many of the wondrous creatures we share this wondrous world with - unless we all start advocating on their behalf.

And I truly hope that they catch this wolf pup killer, and that he or she is prosecuted.

"we are merely guests." Exactly. Unfortunately, people do take control, albeit, demented control and decide they are above all other living on our planet. As a wildlife rehabilitator, I deal with this type of situation continually and it sickens me every time. Fox and kits, bear cubs, doe with fawn--the list goes on and on. I'd turn the deranged freak in for free, but if someone helps capture the "serial killer" in training and takes the money, I'm sure they'll do good works with it. It's hard to get step down from this soap box, it's so high. Thanks for caring so much, Stacy.
