Perceptions of Predatory Wildlife

December 1, 2015

Wild Lands Advocate article from December 2015 by Tempest Emery.

Typically, the predator is understood as an animal that kills and eats other animals for food. What does this understanding mean for how we regard and treat these animals? This conventional identification defines the predator solely in relation to its carnivorous tendencies and its ability to inflict harm upon other creatures. This blanket categorization obscures the differences among species of predators and among the individuals comprising their populations.

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. 

Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, 

and the storms their energy,
 while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
