What kind of person kills such creatures??
Humans, STOP killing!!!
"A rare white female wolf that hikers found as she lay dying last month on the north side of Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming was shot illegally, officials have determined.
The wolf had to be euthanized by park officials because of the severity of her wound.
She was the only white wolf living in the park, though there had been two others before her. She was 12 years old when she was killed, twice the average age of wolves in Yellowstone.
She was the alpha female of the Canyon Pack, one of 10 packs in the park, and she had paired with the alpha male for nine years. Over that period, biologists say, she whelped 20 pups, 14 of which lived to be adults.
After she was euthanized, the white wolf’s carcass was sent to the United States Fish and Wildlife Service forensics lab, and the preliminary results of the necropsy were released on Friday. Park officials are treating the shooting as a crime.
“Due to the serious nature of this incident, a reward of up to $5,000 is offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual(s) responsible for this criminal act,” said Dan Wenk, Yellowstone National Park superintendent, in a statement.
The shooting comes as park officials say they are concerned about the renewed hunting of wolves in Wyoming, which will begin this fall. Wolf hunting is already allowed in Idaho and Montana, states that border the park, though in Montana it is limited in hopes of keeping the impact on park wolves to a minimum.
Hunting wolves, even outside the park, conflicts with Yellowstone’s mission to protect the animals for study and for people to view. Wolves in the park have little fear of humans, and once they wander beyond the boundary can be easily taken by hunters.
The value of wolf watching in Yellowstone is pegged by studies at $35 million a year. Thousands of people come to the park to watch wolves, and the white wolf was seen fairly often. “She was one of the most coveted wolves to see,” said Douglas Smith, the park’s wolf biologist."

With “Health Care legislation” heading to the US Senate these four Republican US Senators may be the crucial votes to nullify the horror delivered by the Republican Congress on 4 May 2017.
Please call them, send postcards, go on their webpage and send a message, Twitter with @ copies to all sorts of people is a powerful tool, request your US Senator contact them to help educate/persuade/enlist their help on defeating the insult to the American people perpetrated by Republicans motivated by financial gain and open disdain towards your fellow citizens.
Please read everything flooding verifiable news sources on what the Congress passed so your voice will be credible.
Do not do nothing!!!

Great energy & hope!!
KING TV: "Hundreds of thousands of scientists and their advocates turned out on a rainy Saturday in Washington as part of a worldwide protest to declare science "under attack" from a techno-unfriendly White House.
The March for Science movement also saw rallies in more than 600 communities across the USA, including Seattle and Olympia. Governor Jay Inslee spoke at a rally at Seattle's Cal Anderson Park, followed briefly by a protester who stormed the stage and took over the microphone. Seattle police ended up stepping in and removed the protester from the stage.
Thousands marched through downtown Seattle to Seattle Center, where they gathered and celebrated their cause on Earth Day."

Welcome this little guy to the planet. Now living in London. "Aye-ayes, which are a species of Lemur, have an unusually large middle finger and are considered harbingers of doom in their native Madagascar. Legend has it that if an aye-aye points its long finger at you, death is not far away. In reality, Aye-ayes use the elongated digit to forage for tasty beetle larvae from inside trees.
Aye-ayes are solitary and nocturnal, so their habits are difficult to observe. They eat, sleep, and mate high in the trees.
Found only in Madagascar, Aye-ayes are listed as Endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Like all species in Madagascar, they face enormous pressure from human activity, such as deforestation and agriculture. Due to the belief that Aye-ayes portend doom, they are often killed by villagers. Only about 50 Aye-ayes live in zoos worldwide."

"The March for Science on April 22 may or may not accomplish the goals set out by its organizers. But it has required many people who work in a variety of scientific fields — as well as Americans who are passionate about science — to grapple with the proper role of science in our civic life..."

Didn't know this. One of Daniel Boone's kinfolk settled in Bothell, Wa. This little house is just steps west of the main entrance to the University of Washington campus in Bothell.

A survival tip. When in Grizz country think long and hard before hanging your hummingbird feeder right next to the hammock where you nap.

Please, before you go to sleep tonight, think of ways you can reach out and help all the creatures out there-----humans as well.
Jaguars!! “Jaguars are the largest of South America's big cats. They once roamed from the southern tip of that continent north to the region surrounding the U.S.-Mexico border. Today significant numbers of jaguars are found only in remote regions of South and Central America—particularly in the Amazon Basin.
These beautiful and powerful beasts were prominent in ancient Native American cultures. In some traditions the Jaguar God of the Night was the formidable lord of the underworld. The name jaguar is derived from the Native American word yaguar, which means “he who kills with one leap.”
Let Kids Be Kids advocates for the rights of all those in the animal kingdom. Yep, humans too-----And, in particular, all those Jaguars out there.
