A limited hunt of gray wolves has gotten underway in the Upper Peninsula(UP), after years of delays due to lawsuits brought by environmental groups. For years farmers and hunters have complained about wolves preying on livestock and attacking deer.

During my musings on wolves and men, the attempts to re-introduce them into the Northern Rockies, I thought a lot about what Barry Lopez had said about so many of us having separated ourselves from nature by seeing it as ‘the other’. Here he was speaking about the oldest metaphor for those living in North America being…nature.

I forgot to remember that we exterminated all the wolves. I am sure I must have known this at some point in my life, but it still came as a shock to be reminded of what has become of this country since the introduction of colonists and their livestock. I rediscovered that fact after reading about OR7, the “lone wolf” of California. As recently as Friday, OR7 (or “Journey” as he is known by some of the people who have been following his travels) was spotted within a mile of the Chips Fire in Northern Plumas County, just west of where I live.
