HUGE concern!

Today I have a HUGE concern.

In our great State of Minnesota they have
now announced that there will be  
timber wolf hunting season.

It will be the same time as deer hunting --
which is in the fall of the year.


There has been a hit already!

You heard me correctly!

Ricky Rubio was taken down
right on the basketball court
during a game!

The report stated....

Ricky Rubio's sensational rookie season has come to a devastatingly abrupt end.
The Minnesota Timberwolves point guard will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL in his left knee.

I am devastated!

What has this world come to....

What protection do our Minnesota Timberwolves have?

After all they just want to play basketball....
what can that hurt?

Later -- Remington --
hey, maybe this is another 
one for my calendar....
-- out!

MOL Rem our two great minds were on the same track today!!

MN must have an abundance of timber wolves. Our county has been having some problems with coyotes coming into residential areas. I guess their natural habitats are being destroyed.

I'm sorry that young man hurt his knee that must be painful.
Hugs Madi and Mom

Remington, I can't tell if this is regarding actual timber wolves or just the team (which I'm sure is also tragic.) Reading the comments isn't illuminating enough. Time to google!

Helen P. said...

I've decided this is not about actual wolves. I am easily fooled it seems! lol

This whole thing makes me want to tilt my snooter back and howl! Ah wooooooooooooo!
Sorry to hear about Rubio; that's really tough!
We LOVE the T-wolf's logo!

Devastating for Ricky's rookie season!
But I hope the REAL timber wolves are safe! I love anything "canine"!
Hugs to help, Kathy

Ginny said...

It took me a minute to see your connection between the two things, very clever!!! There must be lots of Timber Wolves there for them to have made this hunting regulation!

JC said...

You are so silly. How are you feeling ?

Max the Quilt Cat said...

Oh...Oh... that doesn't seem right?

Have a great day anyway.

pawhugs, Max

Oh dear Remington, what is next, will Vikings be attacked and then Golden Gophers and Badgers. We must protect them somehow. This is a very important post and I support you. I am having such a bad day, I will tell you more later. I will call your cell after I rest.

SquirrelQueen said...

That is just terrible, and it happened right out in the open. We really should do more to protect our wildlife.
Sorry to hear Rubio was hurt.

We're sorry about your basketball player being injured. We are outraged and alarmed about opening a hunting season on wolves. Sometimes mama just dispairs about the cruelty of some in her species. Us, too.
