    Perhaps one solution to wolf endangerment could be creating a website to increase public awareness of wolves. The hate against wolves is very strong. It is a common attitude to fear them. The government only draws on these ingrained fears to push selfish agendas. In a similar situation, the Japanese government justified whale hunting by saying that it would cause an increase in the number of fish. Sidney J. Holt, the founder of fisheries science, writes about how Japan claimed that “world fish catches

    How would you feel to have your dog or your cat to be gone all of a sudden and him never coming back? The wolf population is rising and we should be able to hunt the wolves and be able to regulate their population. Wolves have been around for millions of years and our ancestors were able to hunt them so why can’t we? Wolves can be very dangerous especially when it comes to baby livestock when they aren’t able to protect themselves. Wolves are getting less and less fearful of humans and are moving

    After reading "Scared to Death" by Ed Yong and "Wolf Family Values" by Sharon Levy, I have come to the conclusion that Sharon Levy 's article presents a stronger case. Levy wrote, "But Haber argued that by focusing on population size, the establishment has ignored the fact that the hunting of wolves warps their social structure, ripping apart the family times and traditions that define wolf society…."

This wolf has fur as dark as the nightly abyss and starry eyes reflecting the moon’s light. Its eyes lock onto the wounded wolf, and the dark wolf bounds through the woods.

    much like the Wolf in Aesop’s fable. A quality that both the speaker and the Wolf possess is becoming self-determined and gaining freedom.

The Wolf in Aesop’s story and the speaker in “ Your World “ gain freedom and leave the past behind them. In Aesop’s fable the Wolf lives a fearful
