Peter Daszak: The Man Behind Anthony Fauci
"We are governed by currently in this era of public health. Put that in quotes lockdowns and draconian drank draconian ism by a group of people that was largely unknown a couple of years ago but they have come to the forefront and have more power than any other people in the history of domestic american policy. One of those people is dr peter desk. Dr peter dasent is the villain behind the villain. Is the man behind foudy. Now many people ask the question. How is it that they spied on. Donald trump the same playbook that they used spy on donald trump. And go after lieutenant general. Michael flynn is precisely the same playbook that they use to launch this fraudulent campaign saying that the chinese corona virus came from the himalayas. It came from some bat soup. I'm reading from the daily mail dot com. It was revealed earlier last year. That peter desk a british scientists with longstanding links to the wuhan institute of variety had secretly orchestrated in landmark statement in the lancet in february two thousand twenty which attacked conspiracy theories suggesting the cove in one thousand nine does not have a natural origin. The now infamous letter signed by twenty-seven seven public health experts said they stood together to strongly condemn the theories that which they said quote do nothing but create fear rumours and prejudice. See that there. You have medical scientists telling us that it creates prejudice. They also lavished praise on chinese scientists. Who said they worked. Diligently and effectively to rapidly identified a pathogen behind this outbreak and share. Their results transparently the global health community. But now the lancet which is the top level of medical discourse and publication said near agreeing to publish an alternative commentary which discusses the possibility that laboratory research might have played a role in the emergence of the sars kobe to ouchi chinese corona virus. The scientists say quote. They need to evaluate all the hypotheses on a rational basis and away their likelihood based on facts evidence devoid speculation concerning potential and possible political impacts in february two thousand twenty. They even add that that statement in part of a silencing effect on the wider scientific debate. Yeah no kidding. Because peter dasent inserted themselves under orders from bouchier he is the pulp fiction equivalent of mr wolf.

We sold the hong kong education bureau. Say it would no longer recognize the union of around one hundred thousand members or about eighty percent of the city's teaches swollen wong as a china correspondent for the economist.

He's getting blasted from all sides over his disastrous speech and there were two takeaways first of all after a lot of speculation that he wasn't even physically capable of appearing because he was hunkered down and camp david for days on vacation so at least he did speak but then when he spoke it was a disaster because in inciting or invoking the hairiest truman bromide.

The Dangers of Sugar and Children
"We all know that sugar isn't good for us but really let's take a deep dive into why we really need to limit it in our kids diets. Oh absolutely well. I think you know. Sometimes we forget that during times of rapid growth like in childhood and adolescence that you know kids bodies are really sensitive to the influence of dieting activity. Because they're growing so fast they're seltzer turning over rapidly and that makes them especially vulnerable to the effects of food of physical activity and weight and even environmental damage that can occur and so we really need to put an emphasis during this time of rapid cell growth to make sure that the genes that are being activated or turning on towards health not towards a genetic susceptibility and sugar can actually displace some of these high value. Nutrition foods that play in essential role not just in growth but an immunity but also cognition and genetic expression okay. That's something that we don't typically hear about. And so what about the things we do hear about a lot in terms of childhood obesity. Type two diabetes like these things. We should be concerned about. Oh absolutely i mean first off anytime you look at childhood obesity wolf whether you know kids are really actually normal weight or an overweight. Too much sugar again. Just places. high value nutrition and micronutrients that can increase the inflammatory process that leads to chronic disease over time. Even kids who were teenagers who are overweight and adolescents have a significantly higher risk of colon cancer later in life. I mean we're even seeing precursors in heart disease in children. I mean if you look at like obesity in preschoolers. I think it's risen from around five percent in the early seventies like nineteen seventy two up to close to fourteen percent

AJ Wolfe: Why I Started a Disney Food Blog
"My name is aj wolf. And i run a media. Company one of our websites and youtube channels and everything is associated with disney food blog. Okay when and how did you get into this. Two thousand nine is when this particular site started. We have a few other sites in our company. We started those a little bit earlier. She thousand nine was the beginning of dfb and it was mostly because back. Then people weren't really talking about food at disneyworld in disney parks. They were real focused on rides. They were real focused on. You know all of the rest of it but there was almost kind of a stigma about talking about food. People didn't want to be known as as folks you really cared that much about their theme park food. But i kind of wanted this site to exist in. There was another site called. Wd w foods where this couple would just go to disneyworld a couple times a year and put up pictures of their food. And i thought this is great. And i kept refreshing. That page hoping that they'd go back to disneyworld than so you're all i want this to exist. Then there must be other people who wanted to exist and so i started the site for that purpose. There are lots of people who wanted it to exist and we can see by bass following. So what do you think. It is about disney food. And who's actually following people who go to disney people who fantasize about going to disney. So i think it's a little bit of everything and yeah. People are super interested in food at their theme parks for multiple reasons. I is that you're going to spend a ton of money on it and at disneyworld specifically you have to book your restaurants really far in advance especially those really expensive really popular restaurants. It used to be six months in advance right now. It's sitting at two months in advance. But you figure you're gonna probably spend more money on food than your per ticket than potentially even your hotel and so this could be the most expensive part of your trip. Why would you not want. You wouldn't just arrive at disneyworld randomly. Choose a hotel like you're gonna research you're gonna figure out what hotel make sense for usa. Why wouldn't you do the same with food. And i think that the people who are following people who are big disney fans and love disney and are going to disney all the time and also people who are brand new to disney and just have no idea what to expect. And i hope they're following because it really can completely change your trip if you have planned out where to spend your money on food especially if you have allergies in your family or picky eaters or you're going to be in certain places. At certain
The Media Failed to Investigate Tara Reade's Allegation Against Joe Biden
"And he's not the only one there. At least five other Democrat governors Newsome Whitmer. Pritzker. The doofus in New Jersey. Whatever Murphy Wolf, Pennsylvania. Other Notorious types. Did exactly the same thing. I cost a lot of people their lives. And it's so damnable because their Children and grandchildren couldn't she even comfort them in the last moments of their lives. They weren't allowed into the hospitals into the rooms. Shameful. Absolutely shameful. This is why There should have been pressure. And common to resign. This is why he should have been impeached. Then, when it comes to Allegations of sexual Molestation. Terror reads allegation against Joe Biden. Is more severe than anything the 11 women have said, and I make no excuses for Cuomo. None whatsoever. He's a pig. But how is it the terror? Reid's allegations didn't receive the same kind of investigative attention. Because she accused Robaina molesting her. What would be defined today is rape. And Other than honestly anticipate credit where credits to other than Mika Brzezinski. Nobody had a chance where nobody was allowed.

Is There a Climate Crisis?
"The green new deal implies number one that we have climate emergency climate crisis that we have twelve years by which to act. And the clock's ticking. I think we're down to just a little over ten years now. Another one of these tipping points and by the way in the book i trace the first climate tipping point to eighteen sixty four where we were warned of climatic excess unless we did something so these tipping points have been around for centuries literally but the green new deal even if we faced a climate emergency. They claim which we don't. We don't even face really measurable climate implants by mankind. I mean that's the thing is hundreds of factors that influence the climate. You can't distinguish him. From natural variability. we probably warmer during the period. When jesus was on earth with when during the time jesus christ was born and medieval warming period. We were probably warmer according to peer reviewed studies waiting till the world's end around that time in the middle ages red that what do you mean by end. Didn't they have some kind of a climate disaster wiped out the population actually Maybe not because here we are. I gotta tell you. I remember hearing this kind of stuff in the eighties in college these predictions. That were just you know really dire predictions and then time would pass. Nothing would happen and nobody would mention it again. So you do get a little bit like the boy crying wolf but what you just said to me. The most important piece is that no matter what the weather is doing You're saying that it's simply not a fact that human activity is the main cause. So what a lot of these people are screaming about. They make it sound like. We're all doing something that we could change. And that would solve the problem and we. We don't know that so they're asking us to spend many many billions trillions of dollars to do something without a clear outcome. Isn't that really the main point
Let's Talk Tomatoes!
"This week. We're going to talk about tomatoes. That'd be nice. Yeah so tomatoes. Are they a fruit. Or are they a vegetable and are they healthy or are they not good questions. Yeah these are all good questions questions. That i get often. So we'll start with the easy one. Are they a fruit or are they a vegetable so Botanically speaking they are a fruit. Oh so they. Although you know they don't have the types of naturally occurring sugars that some of the sweeter fruits have so we tend to typically use them in our american diet as a vegetable so they tend to go better with the more savory types of Other vegetables knows. I can salads or even using a sauces and things rather than like you know. You're not gonna see somebody making a tomato pie like you would see the making an apple pie right so yeah so they are a fruit and you know in the botanical world. Anything that has seeds. An appeal is considered a fruit. So we would even consider things like cucumbers pumpkins of fruit. Well then of course avocados are a fruit too So now are they healthy or are they not you know. There's a lot of controversy around this because Historically people used think that tomatoes would kill you. What yeah this cels like. If you go back into the eighteen hundreds people used to think that they had poisons in them and that if you ate them you would get toxic and that you you know potentially could be could die from them so there's been always kind of like a dark side history to tomatoes and in fact Their botanical name is salon. Selenium lyco per succumb which means nightshade wolf peach and this refers to the former belief that like a wolf. This fruit was dangerous. And isn't that an interesting kind of history on the name yes interesting. Yeah but anyway Tomatoes are not really dangerous And you know for some people. They might create a More of an inflammation in the body than than In somebody else so we'll you know we'll get to that in a minute but there's lots of different types of tomatoes and they have many different health benefits so you know. I would usually give my thumb up to tomato but we tend to see a lot of you know maybe about ten different varieties of them that we would see in the store. We see the beefsteak type. The grape tomatoes the roma's The heirloom tomatoes on the vine which we tend to see. But actually if you were to grow your own tomatoes you have about four hundred different seed varieties to choose

"wolves" Discussed on Throughline
"Even if ruby ridge waco and oklahoma city weren't about race there was overlap and white power activists seized on these events and use them for their own propaganda according to kathleen. Oklahoma city was the culmination of a process that began after the vietnam war. It showed how far people were willing to go to bring down the central government and even though it still stands as the largest act of homegrown terrorism. Ever in recent years we've seen smaller attacks in charleston in charlottesville and the leaderless resistance model. That louis beam was still alive and not in prison by the way promoted continues to pose a major threat the. Da chests just released a threat assessment report that says that not only does the white power movement pose the largest terrorist threat to the united states. Right the largest one that means much more than quote unquote antifa and the left but even more than radical islamist terror which i think people are quite willing to worry about. They not only think that white supremacist. Extremism represents the largest terrorist threat. But they also noted that twenty nineteen is the most fatal year for this. Since nineteen ninety-five this makes for an incredibly challenging law enforcement issue. One that continues to worry experts by kathleen balu almost every expert in the field. Feel more worried about this now than at any point before you know. I've been studying these groups since two thousand five. At that time. I mean it was not at all clear. We're we're going to have this mass public resurgence of this problem. And i certainly never imagined a moment when they would have a claim on even a accidental green light from a sitting president. These kinds of historical push factors are just completely overwhelming. And i think we should all be very worried about this. What we're seeing is a string of events. A rising tide of activity and one carried out by activists who are very deeply interconnected through social media. And who are pushed by a number of historical factors towards radicalization. So i think we have to listen to the people in surveillance agencies who are sending the red flag because these groups again are not fundamentally interested in the preservation of the united states and its democratic institutions. These groups are.

"The war was the vietnam. War lasted for twenty years. And for all of that time the american people were told that the war was about stopping communist north vietnam from being self vietnam. They were told of a bigger effort to stop the spread of global communism to fight the soviet union for most of the twentieth century. Americans were fed a steady dose of anticommunist propaganda so when the us was unable to defeat communism in vietnam even giving up so many american lives and resources. It wasn't just seen as a military loss. It was seen as a national embarrassment. It stands as the i lost war and people take that very deeply to heart. The nature of engagement is very different. It's a war not for territory but for this much more amorphous sense of victory. It's a war with a very difficult to measure outcomes. Many of the soldiers who fought in the war were drafted meaning. They had to fight. It was the last time the. Us instituted a draft. The war happened in difficult terrain vietnam sometimes in areas where there were lots the civilians and when soldiers returned home they weren't always welcomed as heroes and then on top of that there's all kinds of structures around how people are deployed that really threaten bonds of the unit and also create problems for people processing combat trauma or. Ptsd on the way home. So that's like the whole experience of the war that makes it a very traumatic event for a whole lot of people and that complicated experience of failure in vietnam birth the narrative of betrayal betrayal by the government because it failed to give the troops the support they needed to win the war and betrayal by the public who failed to properly encourage the war effort that narrative has been sort of mobilized as a way of appearing to be making a neutral statement but actually working to kind of obscure a bunch of kinds of critiques. People make up the war. You just don't turn it off. It wasn't my war. us we. I didn't ask you do to win. But somebody wouldn't let us win and this narrative of anger shame. Embarrassment and resentment was hammered home by hollywood films like apocalypse now and the original rambo movie first blood back to the world. Does all those max. At the airport killing all kinds of crap protests me when i started writing this book i wondered if what i would find was a rambo story about veterans. Who sort of can't turn off the violence of combat and so they keep doing that at home but to be clear. This is not just about veterans who come home and do violence. And in fact. But i'm talking about is a super tiny percentage of veterans as a whole what we see in the scholarship. Is that all of us. Are more available for violence in the aftermath of warfare. The humiliation of the vietnam war sank deep into the psyche of the american public and contributed to some people joining white power antigovernment groups. We know that the vietnam war was used effectively to recruit people and that the people in the in the movement doing that were making a claim that they believed they had been wronged they. They made a claim that they had been wronged. Therefore it showed that they needed to bring the war home as they said over and over again surges in klan membership and white power activity align more consistently with the aftermath of combat than they do with any other major historical factor. Just a few veterans can bring an enormous amount of escalation in violence because of the tactics and skills and access to weapons that they provide these groups. Do you promise them your everlasting. Hey contam- utter opposition until this country is read of them until america is taken back until they are all. The land are under the man.

Which was led at that time by david duke. He used the money from texas state. Veterans land board grant to buy a property and create a paramilitary training facility and then if found a community of local fishermen not that far away In the galveston bay area.

They fought back in court with the help of the southern poverty law center. They filed the suit against the knights of the kkk. Who beam was involved with at the time at the trial of video was presented of beam conducting military training at one of his camps. He said in the video utterly destroy everybody. Maximum damage maximum violence in the shortest period of time. They can only do one thing die. He's somebody who kind of came from the southern baptist and charismatic.

Groups are the most persistent and lethal threat to domestic security and that same month another report this time by the center for strategic and international studies found that forty one of the sixty one terrorist plots and attacks in the first eight months of twenty were connected to white supremacists. It's been nearly twenty years since nine eleven and during that time. Much of the media and government has directed our attention to the threat of radical islamist terrorism.

White power is first of all. That's what these activists come in her book. Kathleen says that the post vietnam war years provided a launching point for new white supremacist narrative that could unite bunch of groups and activists that had not been able to get together before these included. People like clansmen neo nazis people who followed white supremacist theological beliefs. Kathleen says it was the birth of a new movement a movement that advocated for new kinds of tactics not just sort of the vigilante violence that clan groups had been operating with earlier in american history but instead in a a project of guerrilla warfare and revolution against the united states.

"That was wolves from a brand new released by jumping Janey. Never mind the blocks. Here's jump Janey. You're listening to the children's hour and we have with us on the line. John Oak Leaf. He is the field projects coordinator for the Mexican Wolf Program at the US Fish and Wildlife Service. Thank you so much for being with us. On the children's hour how many wolf reintroduction programs are there in the US and Canada right now? So I think of three four that are going ongoing or completed and so the active Wolf Reduction Program where you're actually putting wolves on the ground. There's the Mexican Wolf Program here in the southwest. There's a Red Wolf program which is in the South East on North Carolina area. And then there's Active reintroduction that's going on Isle Royale which is up in Michigan where they're trying to recolonize wolves on the island and then there's the famous rear induction programs that they aren't really putting wolves out any more at that the yellowstone and Idaho which I worked on a little while when we talk about these programs. How many wolves are we talking about? That are in these programs. I mean how many do you put into the wild and Wendy? You know that your success fall for the northern rockies and for the Mexican wolves we had recovery plans and so recovery plans to give you a road map to where when you're successful your actions so for the northern rockies. They called for ten breeding pairs in three populations scattered across the northern Rockies. Be and so they did releases for two years and then natural. Reproduction took over and that Cosmos the growth from there pretty quick reintroduction down here on the Mexican Wolf Project We're calling for three hundred twenty wolves over eight years and then the Mexican wolves were almost gone extinct from the wild so we had to start with a captive program captive breeding program that required to build up captive stock and then release them. And we're at about a hundred and sixty today And were mainly focused. Not on growing the population with our releases but improving the genetic stock. So there was seven animals when we got the last Mexican moles seven wolves in total in the whole world. That's all that was left of the Mexican wealth so this is back in the late seventies early eighties. At that time the Endangered Species Act just came nineteen seventy four and so the fish and Wildlife Service. Sanada trapper down to Mexico to trap some of the last remnant wolves and he got some wolves and there was a few samples in captivity. That were there that proved to be your Mexican wolves and so we had a founding stock seven and even the ones that he had caught down in Mexico. Those wolves disappeared and were largely gone by the early nineties. Every gone what happened from there is are zoos and our capital partners. Build up this population so they build up three hundred plus wolves today so that you could release wolves into the wild and still have the genetics staw in captivity where that wouldn't positive to go extinct by the risks in the wild we built from seven was a great success by our captive partners in the zoos and bill from seven to one hundred fifty in ninety eight we start releasing Mexican wolves since the while. Today were focused on the genetics. Getting diversity out there out in the wild and so what we do is we but young pops less than ten days old from captivity in two wild dance so we figured out where the wild will thin is. And put these young outs. And and wild dens it's called cross fostering and then those buffs are raised by their act and a raised like wild wolves and then they incorporate. This doesn't genetics into the population. How do you convince local ranchers and farmers that it's okay to have wolves be reintroduced because it seems to me like maybe those are some of the people who be the most resistant because they'd be worried that the wolves would may be killed or sheep or cows? And I I guess I don't try to convince them because wolves are a lot about how you see the world and so certain people stealing as as citizens of the of wilderness and and kind of showing than. It's a wild area in a wild place and they very much appreciate the how wolf in the wild and then other people they're more Utilitarian or out there on the landscape there actually working on that landscape and they make their living on that landscape and so those folks tend to be more concerned about the presence of wolves and they have to live with them and and there's economic impacts their business. So what I do try to do is work with the ranch. Our shared goal is none of us. Want depredations on live stuff. What do you mean depredations So when Wolves Jill livestock something that people own. It's considered a depredation. Something that person owns we're talking with John Oakley from the US Fish and Wildlife Service about wolves. He's the field projects coordinator for the Mexican Wolf Program. We're GONNA come right back and talk more with John Oak Leaf right after a break. You're listening to public radio.

"The other animals came back as well because they were eating all the elk and deer where they had many many of them because nobody else was eating them before and so they also started being more aware of the wolves and now started moving around more and so more vegetation started growing because they were eating everything which meant more songbirds came in and they will also driving away the coyotes so they were more bunnies and more other animals so the whole ecosystem changed in Yellowstone National Park. When the Wolf's came back and all the other animals came back as well so they are very very important a players in the ecosystem. One might say they weren't only in. North America they were also All over Europe in the Northern Hemisphere. And the coming back in certain areas to their old stomping grounds so to speak what other kinds of keystone predators are there. Do they all work in a similar way to wolves yes they work in similar ways to wolves and they're very important eating the old sake and week? Wa avalon's of a herd of deer and elk for example or taking out there little animals and evading diseases because where the Wolf Sargon for example there's more chronic wasting disease among the deer. What's a chronic wasting disease? It's a disease among deer when they are in one place together. See The wolves. They are keeping the herds of deer and elk moving because they always have to look over their shoulder and see if there's any wolf's around and he can't just hang around and they break up in little bands like for example the the females and does and the their offspring for example then never together in huge herds but humans often put them in enclosures or put them together and in huge herds for the hunters and a feeding them at in villa situations. When there aren't any wolf's around there is a lot disease because they're giving it to each other. It's kind of like right now. We have to stay away from each other to not pass on the virus to each other. It's the same with the an elk when there's too many of them and one of them is sick and the wolves not taking out the old sick and weak ones of a herd of deer elk. Then they'll pass it onto each other and a whole hurt is compromised by that. We have found that in New Mexico as well in northern New Mexico within L. Kurt for example. What can you do to stop this disease? The best way is to bring the walks back because they will. They're the ones that That can eat kill and deere for example. That is sick. They are the only ones because they walls that way. And when they were looking at wolf skills in yellowstone national.

After a busy morning of rushing around we finally found the right spot and everyone finally state still. There were probably twenty people in the group by now. Jeff made hot chocolate for everyone. In his winnebago. It really is a community. A lot of these people have been watching wolves together like this for decades. We were watching. What's called the junction Butte Pack? I was amazed how much rick seemed to know about. Every single wolf in the pack knows a lot about all the wolves in yellowstone and the wolves the came before them because he comes out like this and watches and takes notes for hours. At a time there's one wolf in particular that is fascinated him from the beginning. A small wolf ate wolf ate was one of the original fourteen brought. In during the reintroduction in Nineteen ninety-five he was brought in as a pup. Just a few months old and his whole family was put an acclamation pen about an acre in size and while they were still in that acclamation pen. Park Rangers began to notice that one of the wolves was much smaller than his brothers. The run he was chased around and teamed up on. He was always the last one to eat when the pack was released from acclimation pen wolf ate was about a year. Old everyone monitored this reintroduction very closely and Rick says that the park Rangers were kind of rooting for Wolf Ate. It wasn't going to have it easy and then one day. Rick was observing wolf. Ate Out with two of his brothers. They ran behind trees and when they reappeared. One of the brothers was carrying an elk calf in its jaws but right behind was grizzly bear chasing them. It was the Grizzly Bears L. CALF. The brothers had stolen from him in because it was the slowest. Wolf. He was last in line. Which meant that? The bear was gaining on him. And just as about the bail was to catch up with eight. He stopped and turned around and confronted the bear. He stood between the bear and two brothers and The bear was just several times. The size of the little will but the beer didn't know what to make of this guy and the beer just gave up just turned around and went the other direction but I was the only one that saw. What eight did that is? Two brothers had run off with the Cath and when he finally caught up with them. Not only did they not know that he had saved them from the bear but they didn't share the calf with. That was when I really begin to understand that there was way more than just being the runt of the litter rick watched as eight continued to get beaten up by his brothers pin down his food. Taken away any began to notice that eight was spending more and more time wandering around by himself. Meanwhile one of the other packs of wolves that have been brought from Canada the Roost Creek pack was expecting a litter of pups. The mother was known as Wolf. Nine and the father was called Wolf Ten. He was enormous in on the very day that she had her pops which should have been a time of great celebration and yellowstone. They would have been the first wolf pups born in Yellowstone. Sixty-nine years on that day the Father Wolf was illegally shot and killed. That meant that number nine was a single mother with no help and alliterative eight puffs. That's a very large litter. There was virtually no way that she could enable those popstar survive very young pups have no ability to keep themselves warm to regulate their temperature. So the mother Wolf has to be in the den with them so they can cuddle up next to her and absorb the her body warmth if she was leave the den for too long. When she got back they could've died of hypothermia. She was an impossible situation. She couldn't really leave the pops. They would likely die if she did. But if she didn't leave them she would have no food to support your milk. Production and they would die of malnutrition so normally the park. Service does not intervene in a situation with wild animals. But because a bad guy had killed the father wolf and that family represented forty three percent of the yellowstone will population at the time. They decided to make an exception. So the captured the mother in the POPs in the plan was to put them back in the Rose Creek Penn where she had originally gotten pregnant and keep him in there for six months and then released them they would be about the age of human children six seven years old something like that meaning that they still would know nothing of hunting so the mother. Wolf would still have plenty of problems but at least she would have a chance of keeping them alive if she was good enough hunter. Maybe they could survive. Here's what Rick Things probably happen. Next Wolf ate was spending most of his time wandering around alone trying to get away from his bully. Brothers it was easier being by himself. He'd likely heard the Rose Creek Wolf pups hallway and eventually got curious enough to go see what was going on. We think that one point came around and turn in the in the ravine and saw something that he had never seen before in life he saw the first two hops to come out of the den and the process of being released and for him every day of his life he was always the smallest wolf and so he had no conception that there was out there were smaller than he was so He ran over and befriended those pups so we played with them. Share some food and whether he realized it or not he was being watched by the mother Wolf. He wasn't the ideal candidate to be here. New Alpha male. He had a lot of things going against them including his his size and his inexperience in youth but he was acting benevolently to her pops and essentially she invited him into her family to be their new. Alpha male eight essentially adopt raise those pops like they were his own. So if you came along after there'd be no way that you could tell the difference between him being the adopted father and biological father so pretty much eight in in the course of day had gone from being this underappreciated run to the family to having his own family with a number of children he could forget about what had happened to him when he was growing up yes he was and day not only had wolf ate never seen wolves smaller than him but the wolf pups he was now raising as his own had never seen an adult male wolf before they didn't know eight with small one of the wolf pups eight was raising was called. Wolf. Twenty one and twenty one would grow up to be very big and very strong even bigger than his biological father but he learned everything about how to be from eight wreck says the two were inseparable. They perfected technique of hunting. Were there are very successful. The operate as a team kind of like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid and then they would come back to the Dan in their mother and the new POPs and bring food to them so wolves. A big male can swallow about twenty pounds and then when they come home. They can regurgitate that. They bring it up to the pops they can also carry me but it's more efficient to do it internally when the pups e either eight or twenty-one come in they have an instinct to run over to them and they will lick their muzzle and that triggers the regurgitation. And I say that because when a modern dog sees its human friend coming along the dog wants to lick the face of the of the human and that's a remnant of that behavior from their wild ancestors so that's what it really means. They want you to give you twenty pounds of neat that you just did it the restaurant. It wasn't long before. Twenty-one grew so big that he was much larger than eight. He was a better hunter. He was faster he was stronger but he was always willing to be subordinate to the wolf. That raised him. Twenty-one watched eight defend the packers territory against the Alpha male of another pack the Druid Wolves..

This is the morning the sun is not up yet. But it's coming. This is what we call first light. Which is maybe about a half an hour before the official sunrise.

So I'm just going to start scanning eastern West will be listening for how as well how likely I mean. How many days do you now still go out and look for wolves every day? And how many days out of seven do you see them overtime? Pro We bought ninety percent when those fourteen wolves were brought into the park from Canada. They were initially placed in acclamation pens. Because wolves have a homing instinct if they were let loose right off the bat brick says they just had north back to Canada.

"Now we know dogs and wolves have a lot in common women and that leads us to this question. Hi My name is Maya and I'm six and a half years old. My question is why do we have dogs as pets but not wolf's quaffs ourselves dogs in Fox's Fox are so dogs so why not have them as pets. My name is Leila. I live in Brussels Belgium and my question is how dogs evolved from wolves here to help us answer these. This question is bridget von Fault. She's an evolutionary biologist at Princeton University. Welcome Bridget Hi. Thank you for inviting me. Touted dogs evolved awesome Wolf's. This is a really complex change to go from a wild animal to being domestic dog that we have in in our lives and in in our homes so this process happened over thousands of years and really what happened is that people originally formed this relationship relationship miscommunication with wild wolves. We suspect that this had a lot to do with how they hunted. That early on as humans were still hunting and gathering food that way that there was this relationship and maybe communication with the local wolf pack where they were also doing the same hunting being and gathering a food resources. That transition took thousands of years. This was a really long process early. Dogs we're really rather what they were are. Wolves are living closer and closer to human settlements so some hypotheses say hey that these wolves were living closer to our trash dumps where we would put empty carcasses or any other food waste we had and eventually as he's wolves reliving closer and closer to people they had to be more tolerant of people's presence ultimately the idea. Is that these wild wolves were adjusting to human presence. And we're living in and among the villages so often dogs even early Leeann domestication were just living with people but not necessarily inside a house and being restrained on a leash or harness. Why can we have dogs pets? But Not Wolves as my original question. Wildlife are unpredictable. They're not tame they don't live even a house. It's hard to train them so most of the reasons why we shouldn't have a wolf as a pet is because it's for the health of the animal and and it's not easy to handle them through that domestication. We've turned these wolves into dogs that way. We actually have this little the animal that we are very closely bonded to and they rely very heavily upon us for everything from food to shelter in companionship. Chip how did this like one. Species of of wolves trenches shown many different breeds of dogs and like types of dogs. Just like is that like hume doing or is that natural. That is such a good question. this ends up being a combination of both both to give maybe a little example of the natural side of this. If you look at maybe a litter of puppies and they all come from the same mom and Dad. Sometimes some of the puppies might have brown for others might have little splashy colors. Another one might be white with bigger black patches on them but they all come from the same two parents so the natural part of all of this variation Shen dogs that we see is because every individual has a slightly different set of genes so now if we talk about how all people became involved in that if we imagine that we were a dog breeder and we wanted to maybe create a brand new type of dog and and we saw something interesting. One of the puppies was maybe this unique color that we'd never seen before we would really want us that dog when it grew up to have more puppies in hopes that it would have more like it and as we started doing that a lot we found that humans could create create lots of differences between animals from tiny little teacup dogs to these giant. You Know Great Danes. It's quite light incredible. Wow thank you so much for being here today. Brigitte thank you bye. Thank six by canines and people have a special no relationship.

"Yeah any chimpanzees in an it's it's really interesting in edo certainly you know a young wolf or a pub could get caught up in the dispute and something could happen but but generally if if if one wolf pack takes over another pack after dispute they will not kill the pups those pops are immediately taken it into the family and if you have a pregnant female she'll give birth and those pups are immediately taken in it's it's really a very a very culturally unique thing that i that i that i think we share you know we we adopt other you know other offspring and it's it's really a moving thing to see toy wolves were dogs or canine humans get along so well exactly crazy the other super fascinating tidbit in the book you is highlight was the relationship between wolves and ravens what was going on there what happens between these two well the ravens would would sort of tease the certain members of the pack and fly rail close or hop along the ground and come up behind them in pull their tails the ravens and wolves eight they they need each other symbolically in the wild often ravens will lead wolves to a winter kill and in the glue this ave for a selfish reason because they can't open the kill with their beaks and the wolves can so if they benefit from each other yeah so in a walls will follow ravens to a winter kill and and ravens will follow wolves on on their hunt in there's always a little bits and scraps leftover and it was really fun to say that the ravens around us they were scared to death of us we could never get close to them but they would hang out with the wolves as jim said would pull their tails and try to get to play in the wolves with sort of haphazardly snap at them and not really caring very much until they got irritated and walked away but they it was really as if the ravens were just kind of instigating some play cup gap may come get me of his it was really great to see whether there was one time we found a dud raven in bobby was killed by the wolf and jimmy picked it up and kind of tossed toward the wolves.

"Those older wolves have probably come across the other wolves before so they know the strategies they know what works what doesn't work they may not take place in in the actual dispute or the the disagreement the argument the fighting but but they're the ones that really guide the younger wolves on on how to how to act in how to conduct themselves it's it's really important and you know it's in today's culture we tend to marginalize our elders and when we really have so much to learn from them so a wolf howling at the moon is this archetypal image and you all film these and they don't just do it alone like they do it in unison which i think is interesting do they know like bothers no why wolves just how just howl together in unison oh gosh you know i i did all the sound recording and i like to say that wolves held for more reasons than we will ever know you know they hell when they when they're just happy when they feel good they'll hell after meal they'll held search for each other there's a thing called a pet apac rally where generally the alpha will start helling and then all the other wolves will come in and it's his big kind of jazzy so full hysterical hal and and then just all of a sudden it'll it'll start break into play and then it'll die off and so it you know if it really serves a huge purpose wolves will also hell by themselves kind of we find like to check in on each other in the middle of the night you might get one wilted it'll hal and almost like you saying hey i'm here i'm fine in another willful hal off in the distance like okay i'm over here so it's it's pretty spectacular but they're they're array of communication is so buried that we've got hal's growls winds barks these sounds that i like to call chewbacca sounds because it sounds actually like the the stars.

"That was the reason we approached the project that we we did okay so you know i'm jamie just talked about the social lives of wolves wolves are famous for their social hierarchies right there's an alpha wolf abed wolf bullet liz i think there's a lot of misconceptions about how wolf hierarchies work what do you think are what do you think are the main misconceptions about with social hierarchies that people might have i think one of the biggest misconceptions is the term alpha and alpha seems to be falling out of favor with a lot of people but we still use it to describe you know the leader of the pack the alpha is is generally the the father of the pack the alpha male and female or are the parents of the pack generally and so they would be you know the the parents in your own family and they're the ones that really determine how the day to day operations of the family works and i think a lot of people have this idea oh the alpha you must be this tough strong aggressive we use it in a very negative way nowadays were really the alpha are alpha was very benevolent leader he led with kindness he was a very caring leader and father of the pack and it it really showed us that there's more to being an alpha than just strength that really they they take care of the family they they decide who's going to eat i in last it's it's a very sensitive caring thing a another interesting point they've been discovering actually in yellowstone since the wolf reintroduction is that it was always thought that must be the alpha male that leads the pack there have been sightings where people have been watching the wolves the alpha male will get up and stretch and get ready to go somewhere and the rest of the pack doesn't pay attention but if the alpha female gets up everyone stands to attention they want they know something's going on.

"Jim and jamie dutcher welcome to the show thank you so much for having us brett thank you very much so youtube recently published a book the wisdom of wolves and this is based on a project you all did back in the nineties you filmed from nine hundred ninety one to nineteen ninetysix a pack of wolves and it's called the saw tooth pack let's start for the background of that like what was the impetus behind the project of filming a pack of wolves for such a long time to well i've been filmmaker that specializes in animals that you just don't get to see in the wild mountain lions beavers undersea subjects and after finishing a successful film on mount lions we put together a puzzle with abc television to do a special on wolves and but it just can't go out and find apples and film them in a meaningful way you can but they're so far away there so intelligent that they change their behavior and run away we wanted to be able to get into their lives into their social lives so we set this project up with puppies bottled feed them from the moment they opened their eyes and camped with them for six years afterwards but to regain their trust by being with him from the moment they realize they were here in this planet and where did you all get the wolf pups from the initial thoughts while there was a woman up in montana that inherited or to just took over a pack of wolves that was they were being experimented with in they weren't alaska and she she said if you give me the paca i'll take care of them please don't euthanize them they will the project was finished in they were going to put them all to sleep so she had also seen the mountain lion they'll and thought we could.
