RED WOLF REINTRODUCTION IN PERIL

A worrying development for the world’s last remaining wild population of Red Wolves.  Let’s hope common sense will prevail and that 28 years of conservation work won’t be undone by short-sighted, misguided and frankly selfish hunters and landowners, who seem incapable of living alongside nature without acting on the urge to exterminate it.  It would appear these creatures are going to be removed from the wild for instinctively hunting natural prey that ends up being unnaturally killed by the hunting fraternity.  A ridiculous situation.

See below for a video summary from National Geographic.

  1. Politicans are influenced by those who have power and mon3y. Its the same here in Australia, we have to fight every inch of the way for our wilderness and wildlife. Thanks for liking my post

    1. Thanks for the comment and you’re welcome. Yeah, the demise of your mammal species is worrying, but having spent three months travelling around there back in 2006, I know you also have some great conservation projects. Just a shame that wildlife doesn’t seem to be a priority for any government worldwide.
