WELCOMING WOLVES BACK HOME
BY DR. JOHN HUGHES, DO
JULY 7TH, 2024
WISDOM, CREATOR,
AND NATURE
 Requires humility and
wonderment
 Supersedes knowledge as
well as any science-based
knowledge
 Enables us to know how to
use knowledge with a kind of
embodied intuition that all of
us with a heart possess
 Who loves domestic
wolves (aka dogs)?
 Who loves wild wolves?
 What’s the difference?
 Who believes in a Creator?
 Who believes that Nature
has an inherent intelligence
and goodness in design?
THE PRESIDENT IN WASHINGTON SENDS WORD
THAT HE WISHES TO BUY OUR LAND.
 But how can you buy or sell the sky? The land?
The idea is strange to us. If we do not own the
freshness of the air and the sparkle of the water, how
can you buy them?
 We know the sap which courses through the trees
as we know the blood that courses through our veins.
We are part of the Earth and it is part of us.
 The bear, the deer, the great eagle, the wolf,
these are our brothers.
WILL YOU TEACH YOUR CHILDREN WHAT WE
HAVE TAUGHT OUR CHILDREN?
 That the Earth is our Mother
 This we know: The Earth does not belong to man, man
belongs to the Earth. All things are connected...
 Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand
in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself…
YOUR DESTINY IS A MYSTERY TO US
 What will happen when the buffalo are all
slaughtered? The wild horses tamed?
 And what is to say goodbye to the swift pony and
then hunt? The end of living and the beginning
of survival.
 When the last red man has vanished with this
wilderness, and his memory is only the shadow of a
cloud moving across the prairie, will these shores
and forests still be here?
In dishonor to Chief Seattle
and the Creator, Westerners
have seen the Earth and her
creatures not as sacred, or
as our Mother, but rather as
a commodity with resources
to exploit and manipulate
for the benefit of certain
privileged peoples.
THE EARTH IS MINE TO
USE HOW I CHOOSE, OR
IS IT?
Humans have prioritized
themselves over the balance
of Nature and health of
Mother Earth.
EXTERMINATION AND
GENOCIDE
To exterminate one
creature (bison or wolves)
or one race (Indigenous
peoples, Jews, African
Americans) in favor of
another is to spit in the
face of the Creator and
embrace a false God and
faulty religion.
EVOLUTION AND MANIFEST DESTINY
 “Science-backed” genocide: Later in 1859, Darwin's
theories - The Origin of Species and the Preservation of
Favored Races
 “Religious-backed” genocide: 1860 to 1940, upon
settling in the Western US , this genocide was justified
under the name of Manifest Destiny.
Welcoming Wolves Back Home and the Effects of Manifest Destiny
HOMESTEAD ACT = MANIFEST DESTINY
 From 1860 to 1940s, Western minded
Anglos killed a significant number of Natives,
and most of the two million wolves
 Cows and their homesteaders settled the
land because they were God's "chosen
people", or in Darwin's words, "Favoured
Race."
 Cows on public BLM, USFS sacred lands
WHERE ARE
THEY NOW?
THE BLM
GRASSLAND
ALLOTMENTS IN
COLORADO
BLM GRAZING ALLOTMENT LEASE HOLDERS
KREMMLING FIELD OFFICE
BLM GRAZING ALLOTMENT LEASE HOLDERS
KREMMLING FIELD OFFICE
LARGE BLM GRAZING ALLOTMENTS LIVESTOCK, E.G. SILVER SPUR RANCH
Silver Spur is "producing the right kind of “commercial cow”...is this a “sacred cow?”
CASTLE PEAK RANCH
 25000 acres of BLM grazing
allotment land spending $1.35 per
AUM (Animal Unit Month)
 7500 head cattle, including 800
Wagyu (Kobe) cows (wilder animals,
take 3+ years to mature)
 Managed by Reece Hartman and his
wife Shayla
SACRED WOLF'S PROPOSAL TO CASTLE PEAK (AND SIMILAR
RANCHERS WITH BLM LEASES)
 Sublet all or part of their 25000 (or more) BLM grazing allotment after most of the Hartman
cows are sold off in the fall
 Apply for a 3-year nonuse permit to allow for other ruminants (Deer, Elk, Bighorn Sheep--
along with their predators) to have better habitats free from domestic cows
 Within 3 years and after permission of BLM, begin ranching bison (at $7 per AUM) on the land
to support continued lease payments to Reece Hartman and his family plus a bonus for
helping ranch bison (if interested)
 Help protect Reece Hartman's domestic animals from predators with Range Riders and
acoustic devices
 Manifesting A New Destiny: Wild Lands for Wild Animals
TRUE WILD: A WOLF BIOLOGIST STUDIES LOBOS ON TED TURNER’S FLYING D RANCH
BISON OVER FEED-LOT BEEF
(2013 VA STUDY)
Beef meal:
 Triglycerides, hydroperoxides, oxidized LDL (harmful
Cholesterol) Increased
 Flow-mediated dilation was reduced (a measure of
Arterial Health)
Bison meal:
 Triglycerides only increased slightly, and no increase
hydroperoxides, Oxidized LDL, or flow-mediated dilation
https://www.research.va.gov/currents/summer2013/summer2013-10.cfm
BISON
 Better designed by nature to care for the earth
 Hooves stir the soil and push seeds down further +
help with moisture
 Less resources - drink less water, more resistant to
extreme weather
 Produced without growth hormones or antibiotics
 According to the USDA, bison burgers have 152
calories and 7 grams fat,
 Less than even a 90% lean beef burger (184
calories and 10 grams fat) and a 93% lean turkey
burger (176 calories and 10 grams fat). Bison
offers more omega-3 fats than beef, and a better
omega-6 to omega-3 ratio.
https://www.onnit.com/academy/bison-vs-beef/
MILAGRO RANCH
 Local ranchers who raise only grass-fed animals on
their own land in a no-till fashion—sell sacred meat
that is similar in quality to bison.
 Sacred Wolf seeks to aid these ranchers on small
family farms who use their own land with acoustic
devices, Range Riders, and local support
OUR DESTINY TOGETHER:
HOW WILL IT MANIFEST IN
THE 21ST CENTURY?
Can we foster habitats and food for
two-leggeds and wild four-leggeds?
What is your role in caring for these
creatures and the land we all share?
WHAT ABOUT HUNTERS AND WOLVES?
 Official data highlights that there are more elk
today in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming than there
were when the government reintroduced wolves
over a quarter century ago.
 Also, most wolf kills in Yellowstone of are of elk
over 11 years old (not your typical hunted elk)
https://www.rockymountainwolfproject.org/how-have-wolves-
affected-yellowstones-elk/
ECCLESIASTES 3:18-21
“As for humans, God tests them so that they may see that they are like the
animals. Surely the fate of human beings is like that of the animals; the
same fate awaits them both: As one dies, so dies the other. All have the
same breath"
Chief Seattle: Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it.
Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself

Editor's Notes

  1. I’m hoping we are all here to find wisdom…wisdom about how to live, wisdom about how to honor and love our neighbors and wisdom about coexisting with wolves and all of Nature.
  2. Just because I look white does not mean that i share beliefs of the Anglo-Europeans that settled this land now called North America. And just because one might look Indigenous does not mean one holds traditional beliefs of Indigenous peoples about wolves or anything else in Nature. There are Indigenous peoples who act just as white as the Anglo Europeans who slashed and burned their way into the West many generations ago.   That being said, to live sustainably and in harmony with the Creator and Nature in today's era, it will take a hybrid of an embodied Western mind combined with the implicit sustainable respect for our sacred lands and all critters in the web of life held by traditional Indigenous people.   In order to have conversations that lead to wisdom, let’s gain an understanding of who we are as an audience.
  3. For those who love dogs and wolves and answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you probably will fit it really well and contribute a lot of wisdom to our dialogue about wolves and their place in Colorado and beyond. I’m very excited to get to know you and appreciate your attendance.   For those of you who answered “No to the Creator and intelligence in Nature and dont like dogs or wolves and want them exterminated, this dialogue we are having probably wont make sense and you're welcome to stay or go.   For those who stay:   Take off your shoes. Close your eyes. Take a breath. Touch the ground. What do you feel? In the words of the author of Exodus: “Take off your shoes for the ground where you are standing is holy.”
  4. … Every part of the earth is sacred to my peoples. Every shining pine needle, every sandy shore, every mist in the dark woods, every meadow, every humming insect. All are holy in the memory and experience of my peoples…. The shining water that moves in the streams and rivers is not just water, but the blood of our ancestors. If we sell you our land, you must remember that it is sacred. Each glossy reflection in the clear waters of the lakes tells of events and memories in the life of my peoples. The water’s murmur is the voice of my father’s father…. During the early 1850s, the US government sought to purchase tribal lands for the Anglo-Europeans migrants to the United States. Chief Seattle, a chief of the northwestern Duwamish peoples and the namesake for the later city of Seattle, provided the following speech which later became a letter. The following is, purportedly from, a version of the letter dated to 1854. It is one of the best descriptions of how Indigenous peoples understand the land and Mother Nature
  5. What befalls the Earth befalls all the sons of the Earth. To honor the Earth as sacred means to step out of the modern way of exploitation and utilitarian use of Nature for human benefit. To honor the Earth is to respect the Creator and know one's place in the web of life in the midst of all God's creatures.
  6. … So, if we sell you our land, love it as we have loved it. Care for it, as we have cared for it. Hold in your mind the memory of the land as it is when you receive it. Preserve the land for all children, and love it, as God loves us….
  7. , specifically certain races of humans, and their individualistic, often financially motivated agendas
  8. To believe that the Creator set up one race to enslave, kind, or exterminate specific races of people (Jews, Natives, African Americans) or species (wolves, bears, bison) is spit in the face of the Creator. To assume we know better about which species should or should not exist across the natural landscape is to live a godless life disconnected from the balance of Nature. Keep in mind this way of thinking and being has permeated the Anglo Europeans who settled North America.
  9. 1883. Far and Away. Dances with Wolves. Darwin didn't really even think his theory was going to hold water Darwin stated, “If it could be demonstrated that any complex organism existed, which could not have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down." 
  10. 0:00 to 3:33
  11. Wild, uncivilized humans and wild animals had were savages and evil beasts. It was pure genocide (especially for those who would not convert) and supported by science, including evolution and religion (Christianity with a false god) of the day. 
  12. The few wolf offspring who survived the genocide of millions have been invited back as a token to what once a wild, free place.  Unfortunately, Colorado peoples invited, by popular vote, these scarce, sacred creatures back to the land but did not think they might need a large habitat to roam…like 150-300 square miles.   But, much of the wolf range is only wild, public, BLM lands  “Wild Lands are For Wild Animals”, right?  Unfortunately, no.

  16. Start 0:44 end at 1m Notes: I called these guys asking to sublet their BLM lands…no response Notes: I dont blame or judge these Anglos who killed Natives or wolves in the same way I would a modern person..they were trying to survive in a way I can never understand 150 years ago. Watch 1883 and you will get a picture of this kind of struggle. Their ancestors inherited the land but we as a population in Colorado have continued to subsidize cattle ranching on wild lands meant for wild animals. Wolves, elk, deer, bison and all big game need those lands apart from cows.  
  17. Beef cattle here may take 120 days to mature into a steak, while the Wagyu take nearly 3 years. I have a lot of respect for Reece. https://www.waldencolorado.com/single-post/2017/05/25/Prime-Beef-For-A-Prime-Cause
  18. Notes: I called these guys asking to sublet their BLM lands and spoke with Reece. He stated he had 25000 acres of BLM land leased and 7500 head of some prime cattle (Waygu and Kobe beef). I really like this kind of conscious rancher as he was open to a price to sublet his land. Our plan is to sublet the land in the fall after he sells his cows. Then allow the land to be free from human influence for a few years.  If the BLM will then allow us to ranch bison on the BLM land, we would do that in a similar way to Ted Turner’s land in Montana where wolves and bison live in relative harmony. How? We have connections to bison ranchers and  High Wire Ranch in Hotchkiss to help  Flying D Ranch in Montana

  20. SWF also provides protections for sacred cows using acoustic devices and supporting range riders to keep domesticated animals safe. Felix Tornare is a role model for those who raise domestic grass-fed cows on no-till small family farms.     Wolves don’t want your domesticated creatures unless they have nothing else to eat because they have been pushed off their habitat. 
  21. What about Hunters and Elk populations?  States where wolves have been introduced have seen robust and healthy populations of elk and deer increase Official data highlights that there are more elk in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming today than there were when the government reintroduced wolves over a quarter century ago.

  23. In the positive, as we support the fate of creatures like the wolf as well as bison, elk, and deer, we live better and more enriching lives. Think about it. How is your life in sync with the natural order? Are you trying to control the chaos of life or wolves with your own agenda or trusting in a Creator and the nurturing goodness of Mother Earth to care for you and all her sacred creatures? Can we really find a balance and peace within ourselves and all our relations?
