Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving.
I buzzed over to Muskingum County to my Niece's beautiful home.
Here's CoCo, me and my great nephew, Kohwen.
Rented the movie "The Grey"....first off, it's good. Men get stranded in a wilderness, and trying to survive- wonder if God will help them.
Now the disturbing part. I'm an animal lover. Kept thinking- I've not heard that wolves act this way. I then watched the version on the DVD with the director's commentary. WOLVES DON'T ACT THIS WAY..... he says it several times. He's taken hollywood liberty and made an animal more scary than they really are. Decades after the movie JAWS, many involved with it have said "So many people have tortured and killed sharks. Our movie made it an acceptable practice. Now all shark species are endangered. We need sharks, such an integral part of our oceans."
On the flip side..... hollywood has also made many animals in movies 'too friendly" toward humans. I've spent lots of time in Ohio forests, have also traveled to Central and South America. Most animals try to hide from and avoid humans, a good idea for them.
Taking a Hike? Do research on the area, know what critters you might see. Want a new pet? Do research. You'll learn which traits of different species suit your lifestyle. Oh, and if you're thinking of a wolf hybrid as a pet? Not the best idea for most folks, I've looked into it.
