There is a theory, that in general, the male human feels they must be the top/dominant predator. This leads to a conclusion that top predators should be exterminated in certain geographical areas.
The Turtle Island First Nations have traditional, and I believe personal beliefs, that top predators have a necassary and sacred role to fulfill in maintaining balance in the spiritual and physical evolution of life on this planet.
I would like to share with you an excerpt from the book "Yellow Wolf: His Own Story", by L.V. McWhorter:
"It was a Spirit of a wolf that appeared to me. Yellow-like in color, it sort of floated in the air. Like a human being it talked to me, and gave me its power.
... After I saw this wolf-thing, after I heard the Spirit-voice, I awoke and started for home. When near to maybe quarter of mile home, I dropped down, supposed dead. They had seen me, had watched for me. It was good for the one finding me.
That was how I got named Yellow Wolf. Named for that vision-wolf appearing to me. It was yellow-colored, and gave me the power of the wolf."
