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

OR-7: Oregon's Lone Wolf

OR - 7, or Journey, as he's been named, is a wolf that has moved through eastern Oregon and down into California, where he is currently.  Journey's movements are followed by wildlife authorities -- Journey is searching for a mate, it is believed. California has a web page devoted to Journey, and educating the public about wolves.

It's against the law to kill a wolf, at least in California and Oregon. Though there are those in Oregon who are working hard to get that changed, like the Oregon Cattlemen’s Association. I literally pray every day that they are utterly unsuccessful. Here's more in an item that appeared in today's local paper, The Register Guard.
