The twisted politics and false dilemmas of trying to save the American wolf. These conflicts between human culture and economics on the one hand, and species survival on the other hand, are increasingly legion. So far, the sensibilities and priorities we bring to these issues don’t bode well for the animals.
I have to say, I have particular disdain for claims regarding the romance and pleasure of hunting as a priority or rationale for killing animals.
What about the romance and heritage of one of North America’s iconic species?
But what the heck, maybe we can undo it all later.
