There is a reason for “wolf season”. Wolves are right up near the top of the food chain in Alaska. When wolves become over-populated, they eat up all the little bunnies and beautiful elk and antelope, and they eat pet dogs…..and sometimes when people living there are working outside their homes, the wolves attack eat those adult humans and/or their children. I’d have a real problem with a wolf eating my child.

You do know that wolves eat pretty much any other animal unlucky enough to cross their path, right? Are you a vegan? If not, a hypocrite.

And how can we know for absolute certainty that plants don’t shriek in pain when ripped out of the ground or off the branch, but we just can’t hear them?

Maybe we should outlaw eating altogether. Then humans starve out. No humans are here to use up and pollute the planet, and the earth can go back to the paradise it could be if it weren’t full of parasitic humans. And the wolves can run wild and freely gobble up every other smaller animal.

And while we’re on the subject…. those beautiful snow covered mountains of Anwar that you see in pictures that drilling opponents advertise IS NOT where drilling proponents want to drill for oil in Anwar......... The drilling would take place on THOUSANDS of acres of wasteland that animals can’t cross through to begin with, because the grassless wasteland has oil seeping up through the bare dirt, bare dirt because grass can’t grow in an uninhabitable oil-soaked wasteland. GOOGLE IT.

    Just thinking.......not a zoologist, but antelope likely the wrong animal (from a warmer climate) ........caribou likely a better choice of wolf dinner to have noted above.
