Who’s Afraid Of Da Big Bad Wolf?!!   67 comments


WhoseafraidaAt the tender age of two a young wolf set out in the pawprints of his equally eager predecessors, to follow the path of true love…searching for new territory and a mate of his own. He left his home pack and his father, the Alpha Male of the pack on September 10th, and began a death defying journey across 1,200km (730miles) of mountains to deserts to US highways. An epic journey that found him zig-zagging from Oregon to the California border pursued and shot at by government hunters and risking death from poachers and ranchers in the name of love

Following his departure a death warrant on this young wolf’s home pack, was issued by State officials for cattle killing…a warrant specifying in particular OR-4 the Alpha Male and father of the intrepid lone wolf known as OR-7, and one younger wolf, his mother and one wolf pup. Two siblings of OR-7 also left the pack the same time as their brother.

A stay of kill order was achieved by three Conservation groups determinedly sued Fish and Wildlife for authorising two wolf kills including the Alpha Male, OR-4, whose GPS collar showed he had been guilty of preying on livestcock.. Their legal challenge is to be settled in the Oregon Court of Appeals. But meanwhile Oregon Wild, Center for Biological Diversity and Cascadia Wildlands were ordered to put up a bond of $5,000 to compensate owners of any wolf-kill confirmed livestock.

Lodge owner Liz Parrish was startled by the sudden appearance of the adventuring wolf when he showed up on the edge of Upper Klamath Lake in south Oregon. “I was stunned – it was such a huge animal. We had a stare-down then he just evaporated into the trees.”

Neighboring cattle rancher Nathan Jackson had a slightly different view on the wolf’s appearance. “We worked hard to exterminate wolves 50 years ago or so. They don’t seem so beautiful and majestic when they are ripping apart calves and colts.”

Innaha Pack Wolf, NE OregonOR-7’s progress has been tracked via a GPS collar and blue ear tags that state biologist s fitted him with in February after tranquillising him from a helicopter in a snow NE canyon. His lonely wanderings and lovelorn search for a mate have led him through many counties where he has become famous with both the media and the public, padding his way into the local news in each county his search for love has led him

“People have taken a shine to him” ~ Russ Morgan, Oregon wolf co-ordinator. Unfortunately this is not true of the government hunters. State protection of wolves may be in place in Oregon, but towards the state’s eastern side there is no longer any federal protection for them.

Silent Tears Of A Wolf

Having won the hearts of the people however, the love hunting young wolf OR-7 has become the subject of a competition by those who have embraced his wolfie ways to give him a more appealing and friendly name. this wily tactic is designed to win hearts and minds and turn him into a wolf of such high-standing fame that no-one would dare to shoot him. One entry came from as far away as Finland. Chosen by one of the young wolf’s supporters, a little girl from his home territory of Wallowa County, the catchy title of Whoseafraida (of the big bad wolf) is currently hot favourite and trending in his home territory.

Moon Watch Wolf

Copyright Europa’s Icewolf – All Rights Reserved


Moon-shadows crept across the ice and snow capturing the White-cloud wolf, Moon-dog of Europa in incandescent emission rays, holding her motionless in the extra-terrestrial night. Moon-wolf watching. She stood quiet and dreaming lost in worlds beyond the imagination, distant, faraway, dreaming always dreaming. Moon-Watch wolf, reflecting the icy allure of the Europan home-world.

The sudden dazzling burst of stabbing moon rays jettisoning through star-black sky called to wolf blood and in answer to its compelling life call she raised her head to the cosmos calling the haunting song of the Moon-wolf on a frozen world of ice. Silver-coated Moon-wolf, the caller of the Moon-song. The voice of the stars as the cosmos rolled inexorably onwards looking always forwards never back. Moon-wolf watching.


Full alien moon shining huge against the back drop of ice-blue sky. Glowing male white-cloud wolf treading almost silently apart from the quiet crunch of fresh ice snow breaking under wary Ice-wolf paw. He paused momentarily, Europa’s alpha-male wolf silhouetted against the silvered moon hanging in surreal, splendid virtual reality. He watched her, she-wolf shimmering in the life and vitality contained in the silence of the moon shadows, flaring azure eyes flashing ice cold star power.

She spun in the moon-zone dancing to the beat of the Moon wolves song, time turning in a new dimension in the night-lit show that transcended anything seen in the star-zones, a flickering aurora of multi-coloured dreams on the moon-world’s edge. Moon-watch wolf, silvered white diamond-dancer. Moon-watch wolf alive in the silent beauty of the ice world moon-song. Forever Ice-wolf, forever Moon-watch caller.


Moon-watch wolf forever on a frozen world of ice.

Look deep into the eyes of a Moon-wolf, see the beauty of forever echoed in the soul-spirit of the wolf song.
