Werewolves and Greek Mythology
In Greek Mythology, an Arcadian King Lycaon wanted to see if Zeus was all knowing. To test him Lycaon fed the God the dismembered corps of his son. Zeus was angered by his treachery and killed all 50 of Lycaon’s children with lightening bolts. Lycaon was turned into a werewolf as punishment, and his son that he’d slaugtered was brought back to life.
Fun Werewolf Facts: (Facts depend on the origination of the myth.)
- Silver bullets are fatal
- They can only change into a werewolf during a full moon
- Werewolves are angered easily, especially as the full moon approaches
- Wolves mate for life
- You become a werewolf if you are bitten by a wolf
Red Wolves are in Critical Danger
Even though red wolves are among the world’s most endangered species, they’re classified by the International Union for Conservation of Nature as “Critically Endangered,” USFWS is poised to terminate the recovery program, inevitably rendering the species extinct in the wild.
Continued support of the Recovery Program in North Carolina is vital to the long-term prospects of the species. USFWS Director Ashe’s stated in his op-ed (http://nyti.ms/1RlcI75 ) that the agency is committed to use scarce resources for species facing the greatest risk of extinction. Thus, it’s our understanding the USFWS MUST adhere to the Endangered Species Act by strengthening its efforts to mitigate threats to red wolves — not push them closer to extinction.
