  1. There are no words sufficient…

    • Truly Lisa, truly. They are so beautiful.

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

    • Beautiful, thank you for sharing this. I love it.

      • I love it too Kathy (:

        For the wolves, For the wild ones,

  2. Beautiful. Thank you. Now here is a link to a file that has the numbers of those slaughtered. It’s never going to be a ‘harvest’ for me. There is good information on this file. It has the wolf ID, if collared; description, and location of the slaughter and method.

    • Thanks for providing creekwaterwoman. I’ve done this so long, I can barely stand to look at the numbers anymore. Thousands have been slaughtered by hunters since 2009 and that doesn’t count the number of wolves killed by Wildlife Services and SSS.

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

  3. This video is heart warming. For those people who have compassion for wildlife, this says a great deal about the wonderful, loving, playful, family oriented, nurturing side of the wolf. Sadly, for those without compassion it will mean nothing.

    • Yes Rob, for those who have no compassion or empathy this will roll over their backs like water. But for us it’s everything.

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

  4. This is outstandingly beautiful. I love the wolves’ greetings at the beginning an throughout. I can’t imagine why people would want to destroy them. Good to see you Nabeki and let this be a good year for the wolves!

    • Happy New Year to you Ida, this has to be a better year for the wolves, things have nowhere to go but up!

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

  5. Reblogged this on CreekWaterWoman and commented:
    The number of lives lost in this year’s season of blood-lust.
    The Killing Season
    Slaughtered, not harvested. The dead, bloody bodies primped and posed for a picture with the killer; a member of the ‘higher species’. Smiling and proud of his kill.

    Wyoming: 88
    Minnesota: 237
    Wisconsin: 257
    Montana: 240
    Idaho: 295

    • Tears and more tears creekwaterwoman. I can’t say what I truly feel in my heart for the murderous scum who kill America’s wolves.

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

      • It is not within my realm of thinking. I will never grasp the reasons for the hysteria and loathing of wolves.

  6. Reblogged this on "OUR WORLD".

  7. Thank you for this. I will share it. I cried throughout most of it as it was so beautiful. I love wolves.

    • You’re welcome Karen, I cry every time I watch it. But it also gives me strength to fight on for these magnificent animals.

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

      • Yes — it is helpful to see the beauty as I get so overloaded with the horrible images. This gorgeous video gives great heart power. Thanks again.

      • Karen…I want to make an effort to be more positive this year so that people aren’t constantly bombarded with so much death…but I don’t know how long that will last. It’s hard to be positive amidst the heartache and sorrow.


    • I’m with you Karen. I will share. I also am overwhelmed by the carnage. Perhaps if we all keep these beautiful images of free wolves in our hearts, this love-light will overtake the hatred. One day soon.
      Thank you Nabeki.
      For the wild and free.

  8. This will not change for red states just as long as nobody hears in Washington, what happened to Sally Jewel ? right just a front, this is a big shame by President Obama. He might have too much on his plate but he is the problem. Just as long as the house is controlled by republicans nothing good will come of this slaughter

  9. Doesn’t that hurt you? No more wolves or beloved animals shall be hunted or shot. Very sad stories. Fight stronger.

    • Michael…Fight stronger but also smarter. We’re been outspent and outsmarted by the hunting and ranching lobbies. They are highly organized, stand together and have the political backing in Washington of both parties. The biggest betrayal was by the Democrats, we knew what was in the Republican’s hearts but had no idea the lengths the Obama admin would go to crush the wolf. It was a hard lesson learned and a brutal one for wolves. Now we know we can only trust ourselves and the grass roots wolf movement. We have to find our center and move forward. We’ve lost big battles but not the war. Giving up is not an option.

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

      • Never give up.

  10. Beautiful video!

    • I could watch it all day Snezana (:

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

      • I really loved the video but it just makes it that much harder to know what is going on with these beautiful animals. Let me say Oregon sounds better and better by the day ,California too if they get their. But the big three states are a big disappointment to say the least.

  11. Reblogged this on Exposing the Big Game.

    • Excellent article you posted Jim. “Hunting by any other name is still hunting”. They so love to use euphemisms to describe their bloody, killing ways.

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

  12. Our fellow humans have lost their minds and their hearts–if they ever had them.

    • Sadly white buffalo just a few control our wildlife. They wield great power in Washington and betray all Americans. It has to change and it will change but not as quickly as we thought. Nothing worth fighting for is ever an easy battle. There are more of us then there are of them.

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

  13. Reblogged this on 47whitebuffalo's Blog and commented:

  14. The Mountains Will Remember Wolves

  15. ..I cannot speak..the *tears* flow..the heart breaks..I love them so ♥

    • laddieluv, you’ve said it all!

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

  16. oh lord this is so sad why cant this be stopped it is so heart breaking to us people who just love the wolves

    • I ask myself that every day ):

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

      • i pray to god to make this stop their are one of his as well they deserve to live in freedom the same as the rest of us i just love them so much i hate to hear of those scumbags hurting them but what goes round comes around and i hope it is soon for these hateful people

      • Couldn’t agree more isabel!!!

        For the wolves, For the wild ones,

  17. I miss Kamots’ pack somehow. If there is one documentary i can suggest to someone, it would be Living with Wolves!

  18. Beautiful video makes me miss being around these amazing living beings

    • They truly are magnificent Joan, it’s hard to imagine why anyone would want to hurt them but there are some very sick people in our society. Unfortunately many of them live where wolves live. Oregon seems to be the only state that’s doing a fairly decent job with wolves. Wondering which way California will go?


  19. Beautiful video, it warms my heart to see our wolves doing what is an important of their lives. For a brief moment I decided to forget the 1140 wolves murdered by sick beasts. Thank for posting Nabeki and my best wishes for you this year.

    • Best wishes to you mayasioux. I love this video as well, it shows wolves so naturally, playing and carefree. If only that were the case.

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

  21. Nabeki,
    Wolf trapping is still going on in Montana.
    Do you have a total (so far) for the number of wolves lost in Montana this season?
    The numbers are so important in fighting back and trying to protect our remaining wolves.

    • Toni, here are the updated numbers:

      Idaho – 149 hunted by bow or rifle/43 trapped/ 192 slaughtered
      Montana – 117 hunted by bow or rifle/33 trapped/ 150 slaughtered
      Wyoming – 24 slaughtered/hunt (closed)/39 killed predator zone (2013)
      Wisconsin – 257 slaughtered (closed)
      Minnesota – 149 slaughtered (closed) late season numbers (don’t have the early season numbers)


    • As of January 2, 2014 we can add 7 more slaughtered in ID. 6 trapped; 1 hunted. The ID Fish & Game’s hired trapper hunter who went into the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness area to kill two packs (very secluded and hard to reach area so they were NOT ‘problem’ wolves). Maybe that is in your count. I don’t know.

      Sickening. We must get them back on the ESA. It is their only chance to live. There are just too many deranged souls salivating at the thought of killing them.

  22. Here’s an interesting fact for Game of Thrones viewers. The series has used 31,653.72 square feet of real animal fur (wolves included), they could have gone for faux fur but the costume designer griped about how that would reduce the ‘authenticity’ for the cast and viewers (because the actors play medieval hunters, why not have them dress like them for real?) – same b.s. excuse as what was used in “The Grey”. So thousands of animals die for aesthetic entertainment purposes yet again.
