His goal is to prove that wolves are killing thousands of caribou for sport, but he find that the wolves are not to blame for the decrease in caribou populations. The most significant factor Mowat uses to convince the reader that wolves are not viscous killers is the rhetorical strategy of logos. In chapter seven of the book, Mowat spends hours watching a new found wolf den. After a long time of no movement he decides to stand up. As he turns around he sees three adult wolves had been “sitting there behind my back for hours” (71).
Whereas the wolf is a wicked, greedy, predator (including sexually), Little Red is innocent (sexually) and depending on the version she is either cunning or naïve (Hallett, 27-29). For the most part, this story type ends with the wolf being bested by either Little Red or an outside force (masculine hero: i.e. hunter, woodsman etc.) that saves her. In a general sense, this tale type is meant to not only entertain but to also teach children not to talk to strangers (Walker, 12).
In both versions of White Fang, a young man who has arrived in Alaska to search for a gold mine encounters White Fang, a dog-wolf mix who has lost his wolf mother.

Unique Wolves If you visit northern Wisconsin, don't be surprised to hear the eerie and beautiful howl of wolves at night. They have returned after about 40 years of absence. By the 1950's, wolves had been driven out of their ancient homeland by ranchers and the federal government. Wolves killed livestock for food, so they were considered nuisances. But starting in the 1990's, the state reintroduced wolves to help manage the deer population.
His eagerness for a solitary life in the wild overcomes him eventually that takes him back to the wild. At this juncture of the narrative, the balance between group and individual is disrupted as Buck joins a pack of wolves and establishes his authority, inspiring fear among the Yeehat Indians.

While many are busy worrying about themselves, Ralph is more concerned about the general well-being and presents them confidence. Ralph is also recognized as the Good wolf due to his efforts to make the group a democracy. He advocates for a civilized way of running an assembly: “We can’t have everybody talking at once.

Jus’ as soon as I can’t swamp out no bunkhouses they’ll put me on the county” (Steinbeck 60). Steinbeck used Candy’s dog to figuratively show what was in store for Candy.

He continued to find a path inside and “he climbed up on the roof to look for a way into the brick house” (Source A). This obviously goes much further than animal instincts, considering the wolf had to have premeditated the murder to consider the intrucut route he ultimately chose to follow.

In brief, in the tale of “The 3 Little Pigs”, the wolf is
I personally as I already stated in the paper do have a level of sympathy for the creature for many reasons. Being brought into a world with nothing only to be thrown to the wolves and be expected to conform to society is preposterous.

Overall I believe that the creature could be given a little more sympathy from the readers based on the circumstances given. Work Cited Pogue, David.
