RussiaToday: Cry Wolf!

RT: Cry Wolf!

From the website: "Our knowledge of these proud animals is very vague, full of scary myths and misconceptions. In many countries wolves are considered sinister killers. They are slaughtered all year round as "hunting outlaws" - no licence is needed to shoot a wolf in Russia, and in many regions every wolf comes with a bounty on its head. You'll rarely find it mentioned that wolves are extremely useful animals, essential to the eco-system in which they live.

Started in November 2008, RT cameras capture the life of a group of orphaned wolves growing up in the forest."

Seeing as I'm not likely to accomplish anything useful today, I think that I'll watch wolf videos instead.

We know how that feels.

I hadn't thought of that before, but you're absolutely right. I grew up watching this documentary (http://www.nfb.ca/film/Death_of_a_Legend/)- I think that we saw it every year at school, and at every provincial park and environmental centre that I went to.

I've always had a soft spot for wolves.
