Scientists: We are being impartial and emotionally unattached about the animals we study by referring to them only by numbers and not nicknames.

Scientists: Our research shows that Coyote 748 is an ultimate urban animal and a good boy.

@frameacloud @starkatt Highly recommend you read about Yellowstone Wolf 21, "who seems to have been the wolf equivalent of the Buddha crossed with Batman. In his entire life he never lost a fight & never killed a defeated enemy."

An amazing thread on an amazing wolf.

Oh wow, what a personality description! That's the sound of admiring an animal as a figure to look up to.

"the male role model we all need" gosh... here I was just journaling the other day about how to learn lessons from nature. This wolf's biography sounds way better for that than the Pagan lit that I had been reading that was only projecting mean lousy patriarchal stereotypes on nature.

This reminds me, I always wanted to play the educational CD-ROM game "Wolf," but it doesn't run on newer versions of Windows. Has it been re-released or emulated in some way to make it playable now?

@starkatt

Sincerely, I do appreciate the balance the scientists make about this, and that they don't act like it's a secret that they care about and even feel proud of the animals that they study.
