Rescuer: Wolf dogs are misunderstood

I agree Matt. Wolves are gentle creatures and it is only when men add the dog part that their is any aggression. So sad that people are so afraid of the natural things in our enviornment....sna kes, bears, and yes wolves. Their unjustified fear then leads to destroying these creatures of our beautiful planet. In Lake Lure as in all communities we need people to become educated on preserving rather than destoying. namaste, Russ  (Jul 2, 2007 | post #3)
