“She Wolf”

The story of Yellowstone’s O6 Female, the iconic Lamar Canyon Pack alpha, who was shot and killed  outside the park by a hunter, on December 6, 2012.

We all still mourn her and the thousands of unsung wolves who’ve been slaughtered since the wolf hunts began in 2009!

But this year we can give thanks that Wyoming and Great Lakes wolves are protected once again under the ESA. A tremendous Christmas gift for wolves, wolf advocates and all who value the natural world!

  1. What a wonderful Christmas! Now..if we could have them all protected, we could say, What a wonderful New Year too! 🙂 Bless our beloved brothers and sisters that live in the wild..and may God walk with them in their journey and keep them safe.


  2. Happened to see it Sunday evening. Such a beautiful wolf,brave and strong. Surviving through so much and then to end up the way she did left me crying!! How horrible humans can be! I just hope and pray her daughter can be just like her but with a better ending!! Keep these films going!! People need to see wolves as they really are,not the monsters some people are claiming them to be!!


    • Perfectly said. I second every word and I pray for the wolves that someday man will leave them alone to live as God designed without the interference of man. Then they can truly live free.


  3. I love the news and it made me so happy, but now I am afraid for the wolves. I know that the wolf haters are going to try to get this overturned. They are discussing what they should do already. Why can’t these wolf haters see how important wolves are and that they are not the vermin they are trying to make them out to be and that they are not the killers of the numbers of livestock that these wolf haters lie about and exaggerate. It is heartless and cruel.


  4. Powerful. Well filmed.

    Happy Holidays to beloved wolves!

  8. Hi, it might sound strange, but some wolves may have been killed by sasquatch. Did you read David Paulides, 411 Missing? And I have a question: how can I learn wolf howling? Is there a course? Hi from holland
