So looking at Facebook this morning, sticking my nose once again. I sense fear. So i go look, wolves. I go yay and the town goes blood thirsty. Wolves are seen as the devil, coming in the night and killing. This is not the case unfortunately.
Here is the problem explained by a very wise friend of mine. We will call this friend “Tree”.
There is a greater reason to the problem. This reason makes our fear one of self. The people of the valley hunt a lot. They kill many animals, this leaving the ecosystem very unbalanced. We are having problems solving this imbalance. This is how the wolves are solving their imbalance. There is no food left for them in their habitats. We have taken it. They hungry they come and look for food.
So this is not an act of greed on the wolves behalf, it’s an act of greed on our side. An act that needs to be let go.
Now this is how we solve this. The wolves are not to blame. It’s the hunters that are to blame for the depleted food source for the wolves. And the hunters are only hunting because we buy their meat. Now I don’t say stop hunting, this would solve the problem but I realize that there is no hope at this happening. So this is my proposal. Hunters should pay an organization per kg of animal they kill. This money should go to breeding programs and compensation for livestock damage. This way we put a balance in the system. I can promise you that humans hunt more animals then the wolves come to our farms for.
This is the only way we will have peaceful farmers, still do the pointless sport of hunting, and have wolves that keep our mountains alive.
