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.
Dr. Slobodchikoff believes the chatters that have no reaction are to be just social cues, like ‘Hey are you coming over tonight?’ Then you would hear another prairie dog at a distance chirp and bark back as a response. Sadly, with no reaction to these social cues Dr. Slobodchikoff and his students cannot decode said chatter (Slobodchikoff). Also, Prairie dogs being so incredibly social as they are these social cues can’t be meaningless chatter. Prairie dogs have no recorded hierarchy, like queen bees.

The tone of this passage is very gloomy with the ways he describes how the wolf looked and felt. The tone is also depressing when he says, “he closed his eyes then could see her running in the mountains, running in the starlight”(McCarthy line 46), this point shows the wolf was innocent and never did wrong, which makes the impact of her death truly depressing. 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

Wolves and many other animals have been living in this peaceful, untouched place for centuries, but due to the progress of logging this may no longer be a safe place for them. Logging companies have agreed to spare some parts of the forest, but there is no way to tell if they will leave enough to support these animals. Where there is clear cut logging, often comes other human activities that could endanger the wolves. Not only does clear cutting destroy the habitat for wolves, it also disrupts their main food source the Sitka Deer. Many people may think that clear cutting the forest would benefit the deer, because they get a smorgasbord of food, but in the end they suffer.
This movie was based on myth and truth, but mostly how a man connected with his prey. Seton was a man hired in the late 1800s for a one thousand dollar fee to kill Lobo, “the king” of a wolf pack. The killing becomes a personal vendetta and a challenge that teaches Seton that the wolf is a smart creature. On the path to destroy, Seton learns many lessons that will extend to many Americans via his personal writings of his experience. As the movie states, it is a conflict of the hunter and the naturalist.
