The Wolf Haters
In 2005 St. James Davis was severely mauled not by a wolf, but by a chimpanzee at Animal Haven Ranch near Bakersfield, California. Davis was critically injured and his face was horribly disfigured. The chimp chewed off his nose, foot, testicles, and chunks of his buttocks and legs. This chimp had previously bitten off a woman's finger.
In April 2006 a man was killed not by a wolf, but by a chimpanzee at the Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary on an isolated mountain road in West Africa. Melvin Mammah had his hand bitten off, and Issa Kanu was killed by the vicious chimpanzee.
In February 2009 Charla Nash was viciously attacked not by a wolf, but by a pet chimpanzee in Stamford, Connecticut. Her injuries were so severe that she underwent a full face transplant. She lost her eyes and also her hands. Two hands were transplanted, but they failed to thrive and were removed. I will spare you the gruesome details.
Adult Chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes), especially males, can be very aggressive. They are very territorial and are known to kill other chimps. Chimpanzees also engage in targeted hunting of other primates such as the red colobus and bush babies. They use the meat from these kills as a "social tool" within their community. In February 2009, after the "pet" chimp attacked and mutilated Charla Nash in Connecticut, the U.S. House of Representatives approved a primate pet ban in the United States.
This contrasts with the common stereotype in popular culture of chimpanzees as childlike companions, sidekicks and clowns. Entertainment acts featuring chimpanzees dressed up as humans have been traditional staples of circuses, stage shows, TV and movies, but they can be deadly dangerous. Chimpanzees should be eradicated with a deliberate world-wide campaign to make this species extinct.
Chimpanzees are carriers of more than 140 diseases that can infect humans. They spread these viruses, parasites, and other pathogens to the human population. Scientists have proven the AIDS virus entered the human population by transmission from chimpanzees. The precursor virus, SIV, has many different forms, most of which infect various African monkey species. Researchers have found that chimpanzees infected with SIV may suffer an AIDS-like syndrome and die as a result. During a nine-year study scientists found that adult SIV-infected animals were 10 to 16 times more likely to die than uninfected animals, and that all infants with the virus died. Over 2,000,000 people, including 330,000 children have died from AIDS, and over 34 million people are living with HIV and AIDS. The chimpanzee is responsible and must be destroyed.
This primate is also susceptible to a spontaneous leprosy-like disease, and other diseases such as Hepatitis, Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies (TSEs), Dengue Fever, Norwalk Virus, and spontaneous heart disease. They suffer from heart lesions including myocarditis, necrosis, fibrosis, and mineralization. Their respiratory diseases include Streptococcus pneumoniae and Klebsiella pneumoniae. Common bacteria include Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Haemophilus, Klebsiella, Citrobacter, and Campylobacter. The most common intestinal parasites are Balantidium, Entamoeba, Chilomastix, Iodamoeba, Giardia, Trichuris, Enterobius, and Strongyloides. Chimpanzees pose a grave threat to the human population and all chimpanzees must be exterminated.
Oeosophagostomum sp.is a parasite that can be lethal to humans and is widespread among chimpanzees. Tests conducted on larvae and dried faeces reveal that O. stephanostomum as well as O. bifurcum infects chimpanzees. The disease caused by the nodular worm Oesophagostomum bifurcum can be lethal in humans and is a major health problem in some regions of Africa. It is spread by infected chimpanzees.
Two parasite surveys from March 1997 to October 1998 and October 2002 to December 2005 identified Entamoeba spp. including E. coli, Iodamoeba buetschlii, Troglodytella abrassarti, Chilomastix mesnili, Trichuris sp., Anatrichosoma sp., Strongyloides spp., Strongylida fam. gen. sp., Enterobius anthropopitheci, Subulura sp., Ascarididae gen. sp., and Protospirura muricola in chimpanzees P. reichenowi, another chimpanzee parasite, was proven in a study to be a cross-species exchange of P. ovale between chimpanzees and humans.
Feces of wild chimpanzees in the Mahale Mountains of Tanzania were examined for intestinal parasites with a microscope. Eggs or larvae of Oesophagostomum, Strongyloides, Trichuris, Prosthenorchis, and Bertiella were found. Intestinal nematodes were also significantly present. Plasmodium falciparum is the most prevalent and the deadliest form of the malaria parasites infecting humans. Chimpanzees are commonly infected with this parasite, and this primate must be eradicated.
The above is exactly how the Wolf Haters present the wolf. The Big Bad Wolf. Wolf Haters in their books and articles tell you absolutely nothing about the wolf. All of their so-called research is digging up "dirt" on the wolf to defame it and justify its eradication. Until a few centuries ago there were many millions of wolves in the world. Wolves are not identical, off the same assembly line. They have similar general characteristics, but have different personalities. Most are relatively gentle and no threat to people, but a very few are dangerous vicious predators who have killed humans on rare occasions.
Wolves are susceptible to more than 100 diseases and parasites. However, all animals suffer from diseases and parasites, including humans who have more diseases and parasites than wolves. In fact, humans suffer from more than 100,000 diseases. That is 1000 times the number of diseases attributed to wolves. Therefore, it is unfair to demonize the wolf for being a mortal animal with potential health problems that all animals suffer from.
On the topic of humans, please consider that 520,000 people in the world were murdered in the year 2000. Yes, 520,000 people were killed by other people in one year. The number of serious human injuries caused by humans each year is astronomically high in the millions. And you are afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?

The wolf does not have as many diseases or parasites as humans, and it certainly does not kill anywhere near as many humans as humans do. The number of humans killed by wolves is negligible compared to the number of wolves killed by humans. If you want to read horror stories about wolves killing humans and sickening descriptions of their diseases and parasites, I refer you to the bullshit book "Wolves in Russia: Anxiety Through the Ages" (2007) by Will N. Graves. He is a wolf-hating linguist, not a scientist, and it is a poorly written propaganda book. It's completely dry, disorganized, disjointed and dishonest, a literary witch hunt that demonizes the wolf to justify it's extinction. He did not research the wolf, he looked for "dirt" to defame and eradicate the wolf. His book is not merely one-sided, it is a monumental scare tactic. Graves' fictional crap and defamation is based on stories and folklore told by the wolf-hating uneducated people of rural Russia which he translated. The book was edited by Dr. Valerius Geist of the University of Calgary, Alberta--one of the most wolf-hating places on Earth. Other wolf-haters endorse this book, such as an unethical former academic from an Alaskan university and writers for "Range Magazine", a periodical for cowboys, rednecks, and hunters.
This is not reputable science or any kind of science, it's just more "Little Red Riding Hood" bullshit. Graves is obsessed with the lies of "thousands of humans killed by wolves", the many horrible diseases and parasites that wolves supposedly spread, and he actually wrote: "When humans are unable or unwilling to defend themselves, wolves attack." Canada has more wolves than Russia, in fact the largest wolf population in the world. Why are there no wolf attacks in Canada? A large Canadian newspaper offered a $100 reward for proof of an unprovoked wolf attack on a human. The money was left uncollected. Graves' fiction comes from a biased and irrational fear and ignorance which has been disproved by research done by neutral scientists. Will N. Graves is not Russian, and must be on the payroll of American hunters, ranchers and Wolf Haters. He should be thrown to the wolves. They will not harm him, and maybe he will wake up from his paranoid delusions and admit he just wanted to make a fast buck with his bullshit book.
