Kelly Abernathy 1/14/2005 8:21:18 AM

Hi everyone! Thanks so much - I appreciate it! This wolf was not in captivity, he was in the wild up in Wyoming. He's really big too. Just to give you an idea, the sage he's walking through would hide a moose laying down. All you would see is the moose ears, lol. So you can see how big the wolf is. He was interested in what we were doing, but never threatening. He was a beautiful thing to see! #1033462

Bunny Snow level-deluxe 9/5/2010 5:47:10 AM

Congratulations on your beautiful capture and finalist win, Kelly.
The wolves are very much endangered since the Bush Administration de-regulated them and the Obama Administration is working with the states to kill them all, even the pups in their den and all for the agri-chemical industry who peddles biotech DNA in plants and animals.

The wolf pups were getting sick from whatever is poisoning our food, and apparently those vested interests want all predator species, the canary in the mine so to speak, dead so the evidence is gone.

This makes your capture and win even more important! Congratulations! #8882728
