I feel the urgent need to post this message to all who will listen about an ethnic cleansing that is happening here in the US. That of the sadistic slaughter of wolves. More and more my work is becoming reflective of the powerful connection and awareness that we are finally coming into about the animal kingdom, our abuse of it and how we really aren't the smart and certainly not the most conscious creatures on this planet. As a child our horse shoer had a wolf, Baree. I relished the days that Tom would come and bring his lupine friend. Then I would spend as much time playing, hugging and just lying next to this gorgeous animal whom I trusted and loved with all my heart and he in turn offered me the biggest compliment a non human creature can-his trust. Tom was told he couldn't have a wolf in our county, actually probably the whole state, so rather than betray his dear friend by giving him up as most people would coldly do, he moved to one of the great northern states such as Montana, Idaho, Wyoming or Minnesota. Which one I don't remember but now it is those four states that have passed a bill allowing people to kill up to 16 wolves per season. I just read that out of 1700 wolves in Montana, there are only 1000 left due to this cleansing. A macho hunter with a trap and a gun is nothing but an insecure and fearful person. Argue as you will, it is a fact and it is shameful. Therapy might be suggested here. I try with all my heart to love these unconscious and frightened people. It is truly a challenge for me as they, in the most sadistic ways possible, trap, mame and slaughter my childhood friends.
I ask that you go to this site, sign a petition, see a fabulous film and do what you can to help these lovely people with their most noble cause; [link]
