A sad commentary on the invasion of mankind into Nature without respect for other creatures.
Many people still aren’t comfortable admitting they’re animals. And this supremacist attitude is reflected in everything they do in regard to our fellow species. Anyone who has been following the wolf issue since gray wolves were removed from the Endangered Species List in a handful of backward states has certainly noticed a rapid backslide pertaining to how wolves are perceived, treated and “managed” by those bent on dragging us back to the dark ages for animals—the Nineteenth Century—when concepts like bounties, culls and contest huntgs were commonplace. Hunters and ranchers in the tri-state area surrounding Yellowstone National Park, as well as in the Great Lakes region, are doing everything they can to resurrect the gory glory days of the 1800s, and wolves are paying the ultimate price.

Local people would be integrated into these parks as environmental educators, managers and rangers – a model drawn from existing large-scale conservation projects.
*************
Scientists say that we are super good at killing stuff. Humans don’t really need another reason to feel like the greatest species on Earth, so far removed from Nature that we can basically do whatever we want with it. Scientists in British Columbia have officially dubbed us “super predators.”
