I just couldn't resist. If ever there was an article MADE for Rox, this is it.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/34303223/ns/us_news-environment/

None-the-less, no matter what they have done, we love them, anyway! I have not read the article yet but the title caught me eye. It screamed Rox. I even have my own "Wolf-Talk" CD consisting of new age music set to wolf sounds along with "Classical Wolf" - both purchased at the Yellowstone NP visitor center.

Rehash? Well, hey, it is better than rehashing WOS, no? EVERYONE can get into "wolf talk."

And the pups are so cute, no?

1)I live in New Mexico, home of the Gila wilderness.

2) The ranchers are grazing their animals on federal land, OUR LAND!
(even though they want to act like it's their land.)

3)The number of "confirmed" livestock kills is highly debatable.

4) Ranches have gone out of business for economic reasons that have nothing to do with wolf kills.

5) The fed pays the ranchers for all confirmed wolf kills....on OUR land.


Geebus, let the wolves have a chance.....
We surely don't have enough ranchers living off of, and making their living and money off of OUR land.

I have reasons for knowing more about this than the average citizen.


Amen.

A subspecies of the gray wolf, the Mexican wolf was exterminated in the wild by the 1930s. The government began reintroducing wolves in 1998 along the Arizona-New Mexico line, in a territory of more than 4 million acres interspersed with forests, private land and towns.

The Mexican wolf is here just doing the job our grey wolves refuse to do.

And what do you think this communication is all about?

My thought.....

"Wolves in New Mexico and Arizona."

Ta dah!!!

But, I could be wrong and it has more to do with the cover up at area 51.

How much do you want to bet the Mexican wolves are actually Alien wolves.

Uh huh, don't lie to me...that's it isn't it?

The Dire Wolf
Songwriters: Hunter, Robert C;Garcia, Jerome J

In the timbers to Fennario, the wolves are running round,
The winter was so hard and cold, froze ten feet 'neath the ground.
Don't murder me, I beg of you, don't murder me. Please, don't murder me.

I sat down to my supper, 'twas a bottle of red whisky,
I said my prayers and went to bed, that's the last they saw of me.
Don't murder me, I beg of you, don't murder me. Please, don't murder me.

When I awoke, the Dire Wolf, six hundred pounds of sin,
Was grinning at my window, all I said was "Come on in".
Don't murder me, I beg of you, don't murder me. Please, don't murder me.

The Wolf came in, I got my cards, we sat down for a game.
I cut my deck to the Queen of Spades, but the cards were all the same.
Don't murder me, I beg of you, don't murder me. Please, don't murder me.

In the backwash of Fennario, the black and bloody mire,
The Dire Wolf collects his dues, while the boys sing 'round the fire.
Don't murder me, I beg of you, don't murder me. Please, don't murder me.
No, no, no don't murder me. I beg of you,
Don't murder me. Please, don't murder me.

Gentlemen,

Can we have some comment, however, brief to go along with posting a link i.e. your take on it - even if one sentence. Simply posting links to youtube without any sort of commentary or introduction does not really make for an interesting forum.

skipt,

Would that be ILLEGAL ALIEN wolves and would they be entitled to universal vet care? BTW, I think we need to be poltical correct and call them UNDOCUMENTED wolves. What does the proposed health care reform have to say about their health care?

Neither does posting B.S. to threads you have no business posting to, or lying to people about how you intend to make one post to a thread when you clearly do not, but that never stops you.

Matty,

Indeed, it does not. Ain't life just a bitch. Personally, I don't read links which have no commentary attached but that's just me. Perhaps other people do.

What do you mean "BS topics?" Hey, Man, undocumented wolves i.e. illegal alien wolves IS an important topic. As Skipt points out, they just might do jobs our natives wolves won't do. What's the matter with you? Why, it does not sound like you are in a very good mood at all, today.

Sorry, gentlemen, but I have not clicked on any of these "unedited" links although no doubt they are all wonderful and I am sure, quite enlightening. My feeling is that if a link is not worth commenting on, it is probably not worth taking the time to view it but then, that is just me.

Now back to "undocumented wolves."

MH The "LEB entity" hmmmmm......interesting concept.

We have some gentlemen here and we also have some pretty cool and decent Dudes all things considered (yourself included). In fact, most of the people here - both guys and gals - are really nice people. Great folks to know and you can have a lot of fun with them to say nothing of learning a whole bunch of information when help is requested.

Of course, we also have some world-class turkeys but then that's life. Everyone can't be a winner all the time.

It does require you tap the link or miss the point, your choice.

If we could just describe it there would be no reason to link. When it works it's more poignant.

The Dead, Los Lobos, Warren Zevon, etc, even Locker's Ganj, cannot be described, they Must be experienced or there is no point. (must.... not.... go on tangent here.....)

Rox gets it, when we rib him like this. He digs it, even if he won't say it, and so do you!

As the Ramones used to say around the table at Thanksgiving, "gobble-gobble, we accept you, one of us!"

Not sure why I clicked on this thread, but I did.

Saw that LEB has a picture next to her name.

Not sure why I clicked on the picture, but I did.

Found cats, lots of cats.

It all makes sense now.

That is, if LEB not = DMT, which I am still not convinced of.

Yes, absolutely, LEB = DMT.

I did, Rox. It is always the same issues. Ranchers hate wolves; naturalists love them. Nothing changes. Like ranchers are the only people who suffer the perils of natural disaster. Persons who grow crops don't exactly have a picnic, either. Someone is always going to be unhappy no matter what you do. If you are a rancher, then wolves are your enemy. If you are a crop producer than ungulates and rabbits do you in. Can't win which is why I favor letting the animals work these things out amongst themselves. Why are cattle and sheep and the people who farm them any more valuable than the persons who grow crops? It is like ranchers forget that they are not the only group of people who are affected by the animals out there. They never consider the rights of the "growers" who are affected also - in this case by the LACK of wolves.

We just can't go around exterminating all the animals of the world just because someone is affected by them. Ungulates are every bit as destructive as wolves and wolves help keep those critters in line. The whole country does not evolve around the needs of the ranchers. What about us growers?
