Thanks to “Julie of the Wolves” I have this mild obsession with the regal beauty of Northern Alaska. Along with the serenity and majesty of the mountains, the aurora borealis, the ocean, with the glorious territory there comes the ferocious beauty of the wolves.
Elegance; royalty, primitive ferocity, playfulness and love emanate from wolves. Yes, they’re animals and some might argue that they have no spirits, but look into their wise eyes and watch how their packs look after one another as a family, and then tell me they are spiritless. We can learn much from wolves.
The most common and recognized wolf is the gray wolf, or Canis lupus. They are found in Northern America, Northern Europe and Northern Asia. Many, especially farmers, would hunt wolves to prevent livestock from being consumed. It was kill or be killed for the humans regarding wolves. As a result their numbers began to decline. The decrease in population caught attention in the 1970s and since an effort is being made to bring them back before it’s too late. They are no longer considered endangered but are listed as “least concern” by the IUCN.
It’s a good thing their numbers are rising again, because just look at how adorable they are!! And when you’ve finished gazing at these pictures, follow us back to Newscom.com for more!
