In the essay “Why the Beaver Should Thank the Wolf” by Mary Ellen Hannibal, readers get to realize just how unjustified this unbalance is. A major point within “Why the Beaver Should Thank the Wolf” is that the predators are not always the big problem, but instead a big help, and that they are withering down to a non-existent state. The animal that Hannibal uses as an example is the wolf in Wyoming. I believe whole heartedly with Hannibal in saying that if it was not for the wolves, many ecosystems and the prey would not thrive as much as they do.
Mowat’s rhetorical strategies Wolves for thousands of years have been one of man’s greatest enemies. In Farley Mowat’s book, published in 1963, he makes us rethink why we are still at war with this species. Never Cry Wolf is about Mowat’s adventure as he studies wolves in the Northern Canadian Plains. His research brought him to become friends with Eskimos and a small family of wolves that he’s learned to respect and love. During his six month period he learns that wolves have been wrongly judged and are not the beasts that they have been titled.
Most of those flashbacks involved snow and that’s what drives him closer to believing that this is where it all ends, close to the Snows of Kilimanjaro. His path to transform in another dimension was not easy, he had to find himself, himself as a writer and not some beggar that molests women. Through these significant experience of his, we can identify many elements of the sacred and the profane. In the story, the leopard that was mentioned serves as a representation of strength and grace, which contradicts Harry’s personality. “Close to the western summit there is the dried and frozen carcass of a leopard” (Hemingway 1).
For example, if a war hero wrote a story on his life in WWII and another writer, a biologist, wrote a story on a Grizzly Bear. Both are different in topic, setting, characters, and plot, but both address the story of a living being that lived and faced good times and hardships along the way. Look again at the first and last chapter of the novel. Consider the ways in which the last chapter is a response to the first. Consider how the idea of “ruin” is reworked.
Due to the high intelligence level of human, we often think that we know what are the consequences of our action, and do things the way we like without knowing the real impact that we cause. In the essay “Thinking Like A Mountain”, Aldo Leopold tell us how important is sustainability. As a boy Aldo Leopold thought by killing the predators on the mountain, there will be more deer to hunt which is an advantage for the hunters; however, he did not know that his action could affect the sustainability of the mountain. Through his life experience, he then realize sustainability importance, all species have inherent value in the biosphere, humans have no right to reduce this richness and diversity only to satisfy our needs, from the perspective of
Smokey The Bear In rural forested areas of North America, forest fires are a big problem. From Alberta to California forest fires wreak havoc, creating a path of destruction that could easily be prevented if people took the proper precautions. The United States government saw the issue at hand and took action, creating the character of Smokey the Bear. Smokey the Bear, as his name suggests, is a human-like bear and his purpose was simple, teach the American people the dangers of fire and how to prevent such destruction. Smokey has been in use for over half a century being quite successful, but with forest fires still being a problem the ad council saw the need for a new campaign and released a new set of advertisements for Smokey.
“The world is made up of two classes, the hunters and the huntees, you and i are hunters”(page 40). For this reason, this quote demonstrates that Rainsford divides the world into hunters (those who are civilized) and huntees (those who are not civilized and therefore not superior). Meaning he is better and civilized that what he is hunting. He is saying the huntees are weak because they don’t know they are being hunted and they don’t have a weapon to protect them or anything to keep them safe. so he is civilized but blatant the animals or whatever he is hunting.
He said, “Not a chance.” Fiona present to us an interesting moment of lucidity with her statement. The title of the story is based on the song The Bear Went Over The Mountain. In Munro's story, the bear has indeed come over the mountain. We may think that the other side of the mountain looks different and is perhaps more exciting, but the reality of it is that life eventually descends into old age and then death, with illness sometimes thrown into the mix. The other side is not only the same, it's often downhill and rough.
Hunting: Cruel and Unnecessary Are you for or against hunting? I am against hunting myself. The reason for this is because there is a study that showed car/deer collisions are actually somewhat caused by hunting. Also they hunt to try to decrease the population when they are actually increasing it. You may disagree with me now but after you read my paper you will be against hunting.
This definitely helped a lot, but still doesn’t fix the problem with predators. Predators are like robbers of their prey’s life. Once one is caught, predators never let go. While some may argue that being in a zoo will affect an animal’s hunting skills, it’s not always the best plan to let endangered animals free in the wild. It stands to reason that society should continue keeping our animals safe from danger in
