Sadly, many Americans believe that losing the wolves would not be a bad thing for the prey’s sake, but in all reality losing the wolves would be devastating. One major thing that is present in all ecosystems, the place in which animals live, is a trophic cascade. A trophic cascade is explained in the essay as a “sequence of impacts down the food chain” (578). Hannibal gives the reader this example: “…In Wyoming’s Yellowstone National Park … wolves were virtually wiped out in the 1920’s and reintroduced in the ‘90s. Since the wolves have come back, scientists have noted an unexpected improvement in many of the park’s degraded stream areas”
Never Cry Wolf by Farley Mowat is a non-fiction story about naturalist Farley Mowat, on an expedition to find out why so many caribou were being killed. Mowat’s superiors believed that wolves were killing the caribou. He spent almost a year investigating the wolves’ way of life focusing on a small pack made up of two males and a female with her pups. Mowat camped near their den and observed their eating and hunting habits. He observed that wolves rarely ate caribou and when they did, it was the weak and sick ones.

The mood of the passage is created by the past tense the author uses to describe each traumatic event that happened. The feeling I get while reading this is sad and mournful because the wolf not only meant a lot to the main character but to nature itself. Tone and mood are similar in meaning but they both help in expressing the impact the wolves death left on
He was able to forget the rumors and decide for himself if he was going to judge them for how they are portrayed or how they actually are. Never Cry Wolf has become a controversial topic as people are not willing to accept the fact that we could of misjudged a species. If we can forget how they use to be portrayed and achieve what Mowat has, maybe we too will one day be able to live among these creatures as a community instead of an
A negative to big game hunting is that it can endanger the hunter. Hunters can be attacked by the animals they hunt and can be injured or kill. As the article says in page 4, “many people die each year due to accidents while hunting”. For instance, Hunters are susceptible to being attacked by the quarry when hunting and if there are others nearby, the animal may start attacking the rest of the group in its angered state.

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.
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.

While researching if we should reintroduce grizzly bears into the local San Bernardino and Los Angeles Mountains, I have came to a decision that grizzly bears should be reintroduced. Grizzly bears become extinct in a matter of 75 years. Wikipedia says, "Less than 75 years after the discovery of gold in 1848, almost every grizzly bear in California had been tracked down and killed...grizzlies were never seen again in California. " Now, only 1,800 grizzlies are left in the United States. Like what happened in Yellowstone with the wolves, reintroducing grizzly bears could have great effects on the ecosystem.
