Reblogged from wolf-book
I wish I could legally own a wolf pup.
why on earth do people have this inherent need to own and cage something that is wild and beautiful?! It drives me mad… appreciate beauty that cannot be attained with the hand, only to be viewed from a distance with respect and reverence.
Me wanting a wolf for a pet makes you angry?.. God forbid I raise a wolf in my home with love and care and ensure a long and healthy life for it.
And I never said anything about a cage.
Are you serious? God forbid you clip an eagles wings, let alone take the wolf from his vast domain that is the wilderness. Your humanistic, egotistical thinking that you can own and capture what is sacred behind the guise of “love” is just so simple minded and arrogent it makes me sick… but its not just you, sadly. There are people all over who want to capture the wolf and hold it tight like a stolen ruby. They think the wolf is a dog.. you don’t see people who love bears go OH I WANT TO LOVE IT AND KEEP IT IN MY HOUSE FOREVER AND EVER. Fuck no, thats because it is a wild animal.. but because the wolf -resembles- the domestic dog, people get this twisted notion that it IS a dog and that their “love” can change this wild creature into a lovely puffy squishy pet. True love for the wolf is shown with respect. Respect of giving the wolf its distance and having awe of its power, its intelligents, their wolf pack hierarchy, and their need to roam and explore the world and claim parts of it as their own. If you cage (metaphorically speaking) the wolf by making it a “pet” then you deny them what it is to be what they are at their very core.
