  2. Oh how I wish I could get there. Hope it all goes well.


  3. I will be there with Camilla Fox of “project coyote” and her contingency
    I hope everyone can join us !
    We are stopping the killing of our wolves and need all the voices and ideas everyone has to take this movement further to end the slaughter of the endangered wildlife/ wolves in USA !
    “Cecil the Wolf”
    says “please stop killing us “!


  4. I wish I could come to this, but cannot leave all my dogs and foster dogs to travel. I am there in spirit. Thank you for speaking for us and the wolves.


  5. Reblogged this on Exposing the Big Game.


  6. Great news, a second wolf was spotted in California! At least, they suspect that a blackish canid roaming around Siskiyou County is a wolf, though this needs to be confirmed with genetic data. Anyway, you can read the very exciting news here: https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#tbm=nws&q=gray+wolves


  7. I will also be there in spirit and sending all my support for your efforts. With the awareness raised by Cecil the Lion, we have to think of ways to make people aware of the carnage *hunters”, and wildlife managers are doing of wolves, bears, and apex predators here in the U.S.


  8. Breaking News, a gray wolf was spotted in Black Hills of South Dakota! The video of the wolf, and the accompanying news story, can be seen here: http://summitcountyvoice.com/2015/08/19/wildlife-possible-black-hills-wolf-sighting-spurs-calls-for-increased-hunter-education-to-avoid-accidental-shooting/
