Greek Wolf MythsEdit
Charon, the ferryman wore wolf ears. The Goddes Ishtar has the power to turn people into wolves. Hecate, the goddess of Death has three wolf heads. A king named Lycaon was turned into a wolf by god Zeus. The Athenians really respected the wolf, and any man who killed a wolf had to pay for the wolf's funeral.
Wolf Myths in the middle agesEdit
During the middle ages, wolves were ascribed magical powers and wolf parts became an important part of many early pharmacies. Powdered wolf liver was used to ease birth pains. A wolf's right paw, tied around ones throat, was believed to ease the swelling caused by throat infections. It was widely believed that a horse that stepped in a wolf print would be crippled. The gaze of a wolf was once thought to cause blindness. Others believed that the breath of the wolf could cook meat. Naturalists of the day believed wolves sharpened their teeth before hunting. Dead wolves were buried at a village entrance to keep out other wolves (a bizarre belief echoed today by farmers who continue to shoot predators and hang them on fence posts to repel other predators.) Travelers were warned about perils of walking through lonely stretches of woods, and stone shelters were built to protect them from attacks. Our modern word "loophole" is derived from the European term "loup hole," or wolf hole, a spy hole in shelters through which travelers could watch for wolves.

We need to treat them better rather than killing them delisting them from the ESA. People need to see wolves in a different veiw or image than as evil beasts. They can be kind and caring to each other too, like us. But some groups are thankfully urging people to change their views about them like the HSUS. I am really happy for them to urge people to change their image about them. Let's hope many more people will learn to save wolves and change their views about them. Luckily in some places wolf hunting is illegal because wolves are becoming an endangered species.. There are very few Red wolves and Eathopian wolves left. Luckily, they are starting orginazations and refuges for them so wolves will have a better future.
