Obama Administration has taken the Grey Wolf population off of the endangered species list, making it legal to kill them. They places on the list in 1973 and now the Obama Administration thinks their population has risen to a healthy size, and describes the killing of these wolves as “wolf management”. Meaning they are justifying this killing this beautiful and majestic creature to “protect live stock” and control their population growth. There used to be over 400,000 grey wolves roaming the states. Now there is still less than 5,000. If this is considered a healthy recovery to the Obama Administration then they need to pay more attention to the science of observation.
Reasons why you should be angry about this and fight for the wolves:
Watch the video above.
Wolves restore and balance entire forest ecosystems. They are key predators to other species keeping the species populations in balance with in the forest. Wolves are very social and family oriented creatures who mate for life, and keep life long relationships with their packs. They are highly intelligent and very essential to the health of forest ecosystems across the entire continental U.S. But now they only thrive in the wild in Canada, some northern parts of Montana, and Yellowstone where they were reintroduced. Grey wolves once roamed the entire U.S.
Help fight for the survival of these essential and magnificent creatures of the forest and mountains.

Never forget that the universe is a single living organism possessed of one substance and one soul, holding all things suspended in a single consciousness and creating all things with a single purpose that they might work together spinning and weaving and knotting whatever comes to pass.

What. Is. Her. Name.
Thanks to a follower for finding this: Her name is Venus Green.
In July 2009, Green’s grandson, Tallie, was shot and wounded. Tallie said he was shot at a convenience store, but police insisted it happened inside Green’s house and that the shooter was either Tallie or Green.
"Police kept questioning him. They wouldn’t let the ambulance attendant treat him," Green said. "So, I got up and said, ‘Sir, would you please let the attendants treat him? He’s in pain,’" Green said.
Green said the officer said to her, “Oh, you did it, come on, let’s go inside. I’ll prove where that blood is. You did it.”
Police wanted to go the basement, where Tallie lived, but Green refused on the basis that the police did not have a warrant.
"I said, ‘No, you don’t have a warrant. You don’t go down in my house like that. He wasn’t shot in here.’" Green said the officer replied, "I’m going to find that gun. I’m going to prove that you did it."
A struggle ensued between a male officer and Green.
"He dragged me, threw me across the chair, put handcuffs on me and just started calling me the ‘b’ name. He ridiculed me," Green said.
An officer went into the basement and Green locked him inside.
"She locked the door, the basement door. She basically took matters into her own hands," Nilson said.
"This was my private home, and if I latched it, that was my prerogative because he had no search warrant to go in my basement. So, I had to right to latch it," Green said.
Green said she suffered a separated shoulder in the scuffle, and she sued the Police Department for assault and violations of her rights.
"I was once a block watcher, department head of a high school. (I’ve) been around education for over 50 years. (I’m a) law-abiding citizen, I’ve never been arrested, I paid my taxes, owned my home, my husband died 34 years ago. (I) raised my son and I have been brutally abused," Green said. "I feel like the Police Department needs to go back to school."
okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.
