I Love Wolves Stamp by Gazzelles I Love Wolves Stamp by Gazzelles
For anyone who loves wolves.

Photo taken by me at Vancouver Zoo and stamp made by me, feel free to use this stamp anywhere, anytime. c:

PS~ Wolves are not endangered. This is not a personal opinion. Wolve populations are actually on an incline. Sorry for anybody who disagrees, but I am pro-management. Which means, I do not endorse the slaughter of wolves for eradication, furs, or trophies. But I do agree with the management of wolves- which means, to protect elk populations, to occasionally take out a wolf or 2 from a particular pack. Elk populations have declined 80%. And as much as I love wolves, I also love the animals that they prey on and want to protect elk, whitetail deer, mule deer, bison, etc . Feel free to post your personal opinions, I'd love to hear an opposing argument with actual facts but so far I haven't heard one solid "anti-hunting" argument yet. Unfortunatley wolves were put back on the endangered species act recently because of unbelievable support from WWF and orgs like that. Its not that I think that loving wolves is bad, I love them to, but I want people to be educated and informed on the topic. Lets preserve all forms of life, not just the fluffy cute ones! ;)

I love wolves, but I support wolf hunting. It isn't murder.

Wolves are largely populated in some areas, so it is perfectly fine to hunt them. They are not so so so scarce that they might become extinct. *shakes head*

I love wolves too. I also support regulated hunting of them (With our laws the likely hood of them going below a healthy population is unlikely) I could never do it myself unless said wolf thought I was a snack or very hungry. That's when shyt gets real. Understand he's hungry but I like living too much :/
If anything, disease would kill them all off. Shoot, disease could kill all US off.
Honestly that's the funniest argument I love hearing. Disease would bring overpopulation down. Animals don't know how to quarantine and disease has no brain. It isn't gonna stop because the population got down to a healthy limit because animals are going to come in contact with each other no matter what. That means the disease will find a new host. When the original host is gone. It'll just jump to a new species. In fact, that's how we got Tuberculosis. It jumped to non humans to humans.

Thankyou! Someone who doesnt have a biased argument T_T I am an animal lover, a huge animal lover, but i also hunt. Animals are beautiful and i respect them so much...i love animals more than humans. I respect all life on earth. But i also am open minded and i care about keeping a natural balance in nature. i would never kill a wolf myself because i only take animals that i eat. but i understand some peoples morals are a little looser than mine. and i dont judge them ^^;

Thank you for being the same. I'm more of an animal carer because I hunt. People see in the black and white so they think I don't love animals because of the fact that I hunt.
I feel for my species more than animals but I still like animals more as well. Something about them.
I agree they are beautiful and animals need to be respected even in death. Though, again, I put my own species above them, just as they would, on the most part, do the same for themselves. They deserve respect because they all have amazing attributes that even we, humans, should aspire to. (ie. the loyalty of dogs...)
I'm also a major conservationist. Hunting brings in a lot of conservationist money and helps with overpopulation. Keeping down(Not killing them off. That would be the reverse of what we want) overpop. in some animal's cases; it helps animals who are struggling and helps prevent pest animals from destroying vegetable farms and natural areas. Of course those natural areas also need help cleaning up from damages made by humans but stopping animals from stagnating progress is a major plus as well.. Sorry rambling there.

I honestly don't know about a natural balance except Mother Nature really seems to prefer to do as she wishes, whether it be cruel and ugly or kind and beautiful.

I also hunt for food. More bang for your buck and healthier (Depends on the animal. I hunt deer mainly.)
Another reason I hunt is so I can be apart of nature and her processes. Keeps me ready to provide for myself and those I consider friends and kin. Only if the occasion arises.
Do you farm? I'm no prep-er but I'm considering it to help keep the bills down.

I agree with everything you just said. I wish everyone thought like this. I love Wolves, but I wish people noticed that other animals are too. So, Elk, Caribou and those sorts of things deserve a life too, and if that means keeping Wolf populations down a little, so another animals population can increase, I see that it is actually a good thing.

-high fives you- xD I am so annoyed with hypocrytical people who don't agree with killing fluffy and adorable animals yet they are perfectly fine with other animals being killed. People need to understand game and wildlife management, and taking some wolves out of the populations are necessary! People should be more open minded and educated about this topic.

I love wolves! I don't think that they are overrated at all.There are lots of poachers and trophy hunters who hunt them, and I think thats why they have been puuting them and taking them off the endangerd spechies list. Wolves need to eat too. I do beleive in legal hunting to keep populations healthy, and in the coorect size, but when people hunt just for fun, it really makes me sad and angry. Where I live, people hunt bear and deer and elk to live and put food on the table.. Not to kill a poor animal to hang them on their wall :(

I have a similar opinion to yours, Where there are small numbers of wolves who don't impact local ranchers or elk populations on a high level I don't think there is any need to hunt them, but unfortunatley most wolf populations do effect these things, so that is why I agree with wolf hunting. I'm all about hunting to put food on the table(thats why I do it) but I also know trophy hunters and they are the nicest people you'll ever meet. They don't do it for the fun of shooting the animal, they do it for the fun of going to experience new places, people, and animals and to make new lifelong friendships. They use "outfitters", who are the people who lodge you and guide you on your hunting adventure- and this brings money into the local economy, especially in places like Africa and Asia where local people need work and food to keep alive. Mostly any trophy hunter will tell you on their favorite hunts and experiences they didn't even get an animal. Also in Africa if there weren't outfitters the animals wouldn't be worth protecting and the population would be desimated by poaching. Avid hunters also help donate to conservation efforts, so don't think trophy hunters are just mindless, barbaric killing machines. ;)Plus no meat gets wasted anywhere, so the animal didn't die just to get hung on the wall! xD

One reason I dont like trophy hunting is beacause alot of people do it at game farms. Thats what bugs me most. In the wild the animals have more of a chance to escape, while at a game ranch, espeshally small ones, the animals have much less of a chance of getting away, because they are surrounded by a fence.. Population control hunting is also fine, e.g wild hogs.

Yeah, I'm definatley not a fan of "canned hunting", i dont see how an animal harvested on a small fenced property is even a trophy, i mean its no different from cattle or chicken because the animals have no chance of escaping death so they might as well call it "shoot your own animal for this amount of money" instead of hunting. :/ It really upsets me because canned hunting gives hunting and hunters a bad name.

You mean canned trophy hunting?
As Gazzelles said, those trophy hunters put a lot into the economy in some areas where it is needed. Oh and to add to that, because game meat cannot be sold or left to rot. Meat is also given to a special program called Hunters for the Hungry.

You really should worry about decimation of population. The rules in U.S. are very strict. Hunting often occurs during a certain season and there is a strict number hunters are allowed to hunt. That and only an animal at a certain age can be killed and only if that animal is not carrying or have any babies along with it. Mainly males are hunted but they sometimes will allow hunting of females for a very short amount of time and again only at a strict amount. A lot of money in the U.S. used for conservation actually comes from hunting. There are other methods but so far hunting has been a big contributor and with the laws in placed and constantly being enforced. We are able to keep population down but at a healthy amount. Sometime even above that.

All life should be respected. Cows themselves may not be very inspirational but cattle help farmers who actually still farm the oldfashioned way make a living. If wolves kill off that livestock then there will be no real farmers. There will just be CAFO(concentrated animal feeding operations). If you don't know about CAFO just look it up online. I love wolves but i understand that their population has to be controlled, just like deer or elk.

I was under the impression wolves were stable. I wish they'd reintroduce wolves into Britain... there are talks about it, but I doubt it'll happen as the reintroduction of the sea eagle in East Anglia (England) totally failed due to insufficient funding .____.

Lol, there were wolves in Britain hundreds of years ago. They were common until the end of the middle ages I think. I think we all killed them all for hunting :( Wolfies are abd for farmers, see. It would be damn awesome if they did!
