Sadly a pup this age was SHOT in Idaho as part of the HUNT...yes, it's evil and sadistic.
Just a baby...a much needed new generation...often killed before they are 6 months old now.
This is why I fight.
This is why I fight...the circle of life...for our apex predator
SPEAK FOR WOLVES - 2014
On Monday, March 10, 2014, I went to the Arizona Capital to denouce SB1211, 1212 and SCR1006 - they violate the ESA, but the lawmakers in this state DO NOT CARE - Remember SB1062?  There are 83 Mexican Gray left in the wild, 37 in Arizona.  These bills allow for the killing of them anywhere.  I waited 4 HOURS to speak and Chairman Pratt tried to shout me down after I said TEA PARTY.  I passed out a 20 page packet for the record.  I was NOT allowed to give full testimony and there were only 6 people to speak.  The anti-wolf special interests were allowed to speak as long as they wanted.  I beg of all of you to go to an EMERGENCY FB page I started this afternoon and assist with DENOUNCING these bills and bring it to the National media's attention.  OUR WOLVES NEED YOUR HELP NOW.

“Whenever and wherever men have engaged in the mindless slaughter of animals (including other men), they have often attempted to justify their acts by attributing the most vicious or revolting qualities to those they would destroy; and the less reason there is for the slaughter, the greater the campaign for vilification. ”
― Farley Mowat

I have not written a diary here for a very long time.  Most of you out there no longer know who I am or what I am about...but I need the KOS community to help me here in a HUGE WAY.  If you can advocate for children and can help out with advise, connections, etc., let me know.  What is below the fold is one case, there are actually three SO FAR, but this is the most haunting at the moment.

Doesn't matter if this doesn't get recommended, but I pray that the right person(s) will read this and will help to save some children by doing so....follow me below.  It's a bit long and rambling, but it involves the lives of 6 children, 3 different cases,all in Jackson/Josephine Counties in Oregon and 4 of the children remain in danger....

I use to write diaries here...I no longer do so...lots of reasons why.

Haven't had any work for 8 months, am broke, disgusted with life as I am being forced to live it and even more disgusted with those that are so concerned about their bigger house, new car, next technological toy...me, I worry about where my next meal will come from, or if I will have to move into my truck soon (and I'm the majority anymore).

I was the person that did a diary or two during Katrina, did a tribute to Tirawa and the work he did with children in Katrina and I wrote about my sister's struggle with cancer...

today is the 3rd anniversary of her death...it hasn't gotten easier...

THREE years, has it been THREE YEARS?  I remember the anxiety I felt watching Katrina unfold...

         The helplessness I felt and the increasing frustration of those of us who didn't know what to do.

Millions sent money to the Red Cross in good faith, much of that money is still unaccounted for.

Many sent money to an individual who said they were going to help...like me...I tried, I really, really tried to make a difference down in Louisana...for those that assisted me personally and BELIEVED IN ME, I have tried to PAY IT FORWARD over the past three years as well. [PLEASE FOLLOW ME AFTER THE FOLD]

Please bear with me as I rant.  I am so damned angry that I could spit.  My Mom is amazing, some of you have met her...she rocks.

She is also 80.  She pays alot of money each month for supplemental insurance because our healthcare SUCKS.

So she calls her doctor's office today and tells the 'scheduler' that she needs to get into the doctor today because she's having congestion, coughing alot and having some breathing issues. In November 2006, this happened and she developed pnuemonia and was putt in the hospital.  Follow me here folks.

Mr. Bush,

Sorry this will be short, but you see we are literally on fire here in San Diego County and I have to help people and horses, so haven't much time to write currently.

But this is a letter requesting you STAY THE HELL AWAY FROM MY STATE.  

Your visit will only mean that wherever you choose to have your photo-op making it look like you care, will be shutdown so people/animals cannot continue to receive care....remember when you and Laura kept showing up in Louisiana after Katrina...same thing.

It is 3:30 a.m. roughly.  Another day in this infero'd state.  We are being told there are resources to fight this coming from OTHER STATES.

I fell into bed with Winston (my Jack Russell) after midnight.  I stayed at the barns in Del Mar until after 11.  Hearing 150,000 acres are burned from the Witch fire alone.  It is volitale.  Hearing Encinitas is in danger and trying to get caught up with evacuations.  Angela is down in Del Mar with the horses, I will go down in a bit and 'spell' her.  Horses are alright and no fire in site down there currently.

Tirawa (my malamute/wolf) slept outside for some odd reason, but he's amazing....remember he was in Louisiana helping me 2 years ago and a special companion.  

My throat/eyes/lungs are trashed.  I'm going to try to put another diary up later if things 'settle' down and I stay at home....unlikely I will stay home given animals need help, as do people.  Everyone who has been sending well wishes through KOS, as well as links, updates and been volunteering...thank you, thank you...you are all amazing.  Barbara

Conyers - Right? Nope...

by Barbara

I'm tired on how everyone thinks the 'wait and see' and 'follow the masses' is what our lawmakers that we supposedly elect, should do.

NOTHING short of IMPEACHMENT is going to appeal to me, NOTHING short of ending this war in Iraq is going to appease me.

I was for IMPEACHMENT YEARS AGO before it was 'fashionable' here...now it's all the rage to write diaries about it...4 years ago it wasn't cool.

Running for Blood - IN MEMORY OF BETTI

by Barbara

This is dedicated to my sister Betti Schulz, who lost her life to AML  on September 22, 2006.http://en.wikipedia.org/...

Betti was a woman who was strong, incredibly intelligent and a woman who chose to live a simple life with few materialistic items....she was my older sister....I LOVE her and there has not been a day in the past 10 months that I have not cried over having lost her.

It WILL bring you tears and SHOULD...
