Meow! My name is June Buggie and I have something to say.
So there’s this movie out in theaters now called “The Grey.” Yeah, yeah, another movie that demonizes wolves. You humans can’t seem to get enough of that crap.
Thanks to Jaws, you’re afraid of sharks.
You’re afraid of bears, tigers, and other large animals (you call them ‘game’).
What is it with you humans? Are you really so ignorant about us animals? Or is this just an excuse to kill us?
Here’s some facts about “The Grey.”
- The cast ate wolf meat while filming the movie. (from examiner.com)
- The producers assured PETA that real wolves would not be used in the making of this film. It was later learned they bought wolf carcasses from a trapper. Gee, I wonder what horrid death those wolves suffered? (from peta.org)
- The movie portrays wolves as bloodthirsty and ready to attack any and every human in sight. Nothing could be further from the truth. Wolves fear humans. (from thedailybeast.com)
There are an estimated 5000 gray wolves in the US. Thanks to the federal government removing the wolf from the endangered species list, those numbers are sure to decline.
Wolves don’t attack humans. Contrast that with Mexican drug wars, in which over 34,000 people have died at the hands of other humans.
There are no confirmed cases of wolves killing humans. They can be a danger to pets and livestock, but there are simple things that can be done to protect these animals from wolf attack. One of the easiest is to keep your pets indoors. (from HSUS.org)
Wolves are a valuable component of a healthy ecosystem. Killing them is just stupid. But hey, that’s what you humans do, right? Kill things for no good reason?
I gotta go hide now, before one of you takes a shot at me.
