Befriending Wildlife is Dangerous

Letters / Anchorage Daily News / June 8, 2010


Re: "Juneau residents remember 'friend,' " June 6:
Leave the wildlife alone.

Yes, it is exciting to encounter wildlife up close and tempting to reach across the invisible barrier between man the natural world of the animal kingdom, but it's the very people who did just that and gave the wolf called Romeo a sense that all men are good and safe. They contributed indirectly to his suspected death by illegal hunting.

Well I hope those people who befriend wildlife and habituate them to humans have learned a heartbreaking lesson. Don't make friends with the wildlife, keep them wild, respect their wildness. Until all men can be trusted by the wildlife, don't contribute to potential tragic deaths of your wild "friends."
