“Howling is forbidden” – by Eileen Wong

Wolves are cute, aren’t they? Well, except when they show their hungry teeth andchase you down. Then again, would you not do the same for the sake of survival?

Sign now. Your signature can make a lot of difference in saving wildlife. Here are two sites where you can sign the petition for saving wolves’ habitat:
