12″ x 18″, high quality, exclusive photographic print, by Bertie Gregory.
A female coastal grey wolf traverses a section of mudflat during a morning patrol of her territory on the west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. This wolf is now dead. She was shot by a resident from the nearby town who claimed he was protecting the town’s pets. If we are lucky enough to live in wild places then we must accept that this privilege comes with the responsibility to live alongside our wild residents. Sadly, there were no consequences to this shooting. Had it been a lion, or a tiger, or even a grizzly bear, there would have been mass outrage. Because it was a wolf, nothing happened. I hope that this image helps people fall in love with coastal wolves so that this horrible situation is not repeated.
