In the beginning of things men were animals and animals men. ~ Algonquin saying

"For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much — the wheel, New York, wars and so on — whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man — for precisely the same reasons." ~ The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Rense Link: Wild dogs (wovles)

I posted about this story yesterday, of a pack of wild dogs on a "killing spree" in Washington state. This pack roams at night, has killed several farm animals, including a llama, and residents in the area are naturally afraid for themselves, their children, and their animals. One sheriff remarked that at least a few of the dogs are pets -- no doubt. If you let your dogs run free, especially all night, as many do (morons) your sweet pooch joins a pack, and they're off. Jeff Rense, who I am not a fan of but raid his site nontheless for daily news, despite his over the top and lurid style, titledthis link with this headline: "Wild Dogs (Wolves) On Killing Spree."

We don't know yet if there are wolves in this pack, which is doubtful, or if the pack is a wolf pack (also doubtful) but I wonder at Rense's use of the word "wolf" in promoting this link, which only further exploits a classic mythos of the "evil" wolf terrorizing good folk. It also fans flames; in the Northwest right now, is a battle between ranchers, wildlife authorities and environmentalists/animal conservasists over wolf killing. Already wolves have been found shot on Idaho Oregon border and in Oregon...
