Looks like we're ruffling some feathers! Expect the true reasons for the hunt to come out in the contentious weeks ahead. Mr. Orrick believes: "There needs to be a reason not to allow the killing of a particular animal." Wow -it has come to this -needing a reason NOT to kill. We could of course give Mr. Orrick plenty of reasons, starting with it is just wrong. Then we could talk about how the wolf is a keystone species for the ecosystem. His reason? "The wolves have recovered. Thus, we can hunt them." THIS is what we're up against -keep fighting -we can stop the hunt! Please tell Mr. Orrick what you think by leaving a comment to his posting.

The Druids are the most celebrated wolf pack in North America. For almost a decade, they have held the Lamar Valley in northern Yellowstone. The valley is prime winter grazing for thousands of elk and thus the most coveted wolf country in all the Park. Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Bob Landis has chronicled the adventures of the Druids since their very beginnings and in this, his third film on the wolves, the Druids find themselves in trouble for the very first time. After reaching the astonishing number of 37 members, the largest wolf-pack on record, the Druids begin to decline. Their leaders are failing with age and new packs are crossing their borders looking to claim the valley. This is the three year story of the fall and rise of the most famous wolves in America, their battles against rival wolves to hold on to their beautiful range, the dramatic twists in fortune that banish them from their valley, and the perseverance and devotion that bring them home at last.
