In his new book, Feral, George Monbiot wrote ~ “Rewilding the landscape is an opportunity to rewild ourselves, and fill the world with wonders of which we have been deprived, and alongside which we evolved.”
Stare at this wild coyote for a few moments…..she is wildness….
Let us delight in her wildness ….let us not allow ourselves to be so domesticated that we lose touch with her wildness.
And in her book, Silent Thunder, Katy Payne wrote ~ “I was thinking about what is lost when wildness is lost, and realizing that habituation is not just a slight modification of wild nature. It is a huge step toward tameness, in which all kinds of odd circumstances are accepted as normal.”
Protect our Coyotes in Maine from human exploitation and cruelty….this disrupts the dignity of their wildness … and in doing so steals something precious from ourselves.
