To most of us, our furry friends will become garbage after childhood, yet for Treadwell, he had a connection to the bear that was eternal. This bear led Treadwell to leave his typical life and follow his inner callings. I believe that we all have our own teddy bear. Be it as it may, not all of us find what Treadwell did- meaning. I hate to use meaning in such a broad sense, but in this circumstance I feel it is indispensable.
Although Sam is a secondary character, I believe he experiences the most character development in the book. Sam is a boy who shifts between a wolf and a human, depending on the conditions. The first implication that Sam still remains with a grip on humanity, would be in the beginning of the book where he is manifested as a wolf, despite showing human emotions. During this scene, Grace, the main character, has been pulled from from her backyard into the frigid atmosphere of the woods by a pack of wolves. Despite Sam’s animalistic impulses and intense hunger, he does not attack Grace, but rather saves her from certain death.
Before a bear goes into hibernation they collect enough food to last them the winter, and they make a shelter that will protect themselves from all the hardships of winter. While the bear is in hibernation their breathing rate is slower and metabolic rate, and some studies say that bears start to breathe once every forty- five seconds. Although most bears do hibernate, depending on local weather some bears don't hibernate at all. Understanding a little bit about the background of black bears is important in knowing why the label is what it
He also explained that just as the deers are afraid of the wolves , so are the mountains afraid of the deer and the other species with the fear of losing its vegetation. For this he has phrased that “The wilderness we hunt is the salvation of the world” which means that that it must not be destroyed. His main point here is that only the land can understand the true significance of an individual who is playing its role in the ecosystem. This is story that tells us the importance of very living species in nature and our eco system. If anything or any specie is absent, then there is a high probability of imbalance in eco system.
5) In Rick Brass’ “To Engage the World More Fully, Follow A Dog” Brass Speaks of his relationship with his hunting dog, Colter and how he never intended to write two whole books him. While some may take this advice literally and follow their dog I believe the tool here to try things that you don’t know the outcome to. Because he tried to writing about his dog once it lead to two whole books. Brass is trying to inspire new writers to be creative and creativity can help a piece of work be more interesting and attention grabbing. By using this tool when needed my writing would come off as more
According to the model set by Aristotle, Frances Macomber would not be considered courageous. Aristotle believes that courageous is a virtue of facing death well. Frances would not be considered courageous do to the way he acts before he kills the lion and the way he is changed after killing the buffalo. The act of being brave is not a skill, which it seems, Macomber is trying to posses. Macomber has volunteered to come to the camp in order to kill animals for pleasure and to better his shot for his own game hunting purposes.
11/2 So I didn’t die and she didn’t find a cure so god loves me. and that bear we killed a while back was apparently a momma bear because we found a lonely cub in a cave a few miles from the camp. i named him Smokey, carrie wanted to name him jack, but he ignores her so yeah I like the fuzzy little guy. we went hiking early morning and it turns out he's really good at finding food and he's way better at fishing than me. i think i'm beginning to turn him into a lap dog of sorts.
Another example of transcendental thoughts is the movie, Pocahontas. According to Emerson's essay Nature, “In the woods, we return to reason and faith”(citation). Pocahontas has a love for nature and often goes to nature to get away from reality and think. ().The song “The Colors of the Wind”, from Pocahontas, suggest Emerson’s thought that nature is precious. The lyrics from “Colors of the Wind” suggest how Pocahontas values nature: “You think you own whatever land you land on, the Earth is just a dead thing you can claim, but I know every rock and tree and creature, has a life, has a spirit, has a name”.
He used dog as example why people shouldn’t eat animal. His actual goal is for not to eat meat for all animals is just smart and useful as pet as dog. We shouldn’t eat other animal and not the other. With the argument and knowing that he is a vegetarian I felt as if he wants us all to be vegetarian too. 3.
Once at a large forest stood the cottage where the Bear clan rested. Father Bear was very large, Mother Bear was average, and Baby Bear was very small. One day, the Bears were out to see the beavers when a lady called Goldenwomen came by. She remembered that the house was the one where the Bears rested and resolved to enter and have a look around, even though she was not wanted at the house for she had been mean to the Bear clan. When she entered the house she saw a three bowls of cereal that she assumed Mother Bear had made.
Timothy believed he was a bear, and because of this, he treated the bears as if he would treat other humans. As the pilot said in the movie, he treated the bears as if they were “people in bear suits” (Grizzly Man). Treating the bears as humans forms confusion on what the bears values truly are. We should relate to the other being as if they are an individual regardless on whether the other is human
“Walden” Life in the Woods a narrative written by Henry David Thoreau a transcendentalist. Thoreau’s purpose for writing this narrative was to answer people’s questions about his reasons for wanting to live alone in the woods. Thoreau built himself a cabin in the woods near Walden Pond, where he lived for two years. “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived” (Thoreau 1028). Thoreau wanted to live a life of simplicity by isolating himself from the civilized city.
According to Emerson, a benefit of being in nature is the ability to discover one’s true self. A person can discover their true self in nature because like Emerson states, a poet can integrate nature as a whole, while an ordinary person cannot when they are in nature. “There is a property in the horizon which no man has but he whose eye can integrate all the parts, that is, the poet. This is the best part of these men’s farms, yet to this their warranty deeds give no title” (Emerson 182). What Emerson means when he wrote these words are that ordinary people tend to pass by sceneries that do not fascinate or catch their eye, while a poet will look at sceneries in multiple perspective and put the scenery together, creating a masterpiece.
For example, the bear in Touching Spirit Bear and Ghost of Spirit Bear was most likely thought up after Ben was spending time with his pet bear. Ben also knew what could happen when you spend time outside, so when he wrote his books, he knew what he was talking about, and not making things up. He knew that someone could become a better person while experiencing what is possible
When discussing the zonal method, she rationally explained why that would have ended up being a hassle. She explained that they would have to “figure out whether trappers were in the right zone when they got their bobcats” instead of simply banning trapping entirely. The audience, and apparently California, is able to see the better option based on convenience. While not bringing in facts, a statement from Nicole Paquette (the vice president of wildlife protection for the Humane Society of the U.S.) was used in the article. She also approves of the ban and stated, “...the public has never been more aware that killing an animal for its pelt is no worse than for a head and hide to decorate a trophy room.” This appeals to pathos and logos.
