”The work is a comment on the situation in the USA where the new Republican government had changed the law to allow the hunting of wolf pups along with their adult parents along side the 'hunting' of hibernating bears.
It is a
start contrast to the positive role that the wolves have in Yellow Stone Park where the re introduction of wolves had helped improve the natural environment after years of destruction and change brought about by the imbalance of too many deer. It has caused what is called a trophic cascade - less deer, more young trees and vegetation, more smaller animals, therefore more birds, river returns to its natural course etc etc. It’s a stark juxtaposition, the positive and the negative. With Trump still in power, I feel much of the world is howling together.” Lucy Bucknall
