"Turning a blind eye to the dangers of the wild can have deadly consequences. Growing up on a northern trap line, Harold Johnson was taught to keep his distance from wolves. For more than 100 years, one of Canada's top predators seemed to have absorbed the same lesson about avoiding contact with people, who pose dangers. But this seems to be changing in the twenty-first century. In Cry Wolf, Johnson re-tells the story of the 2005 death of Kenton Carnegie, who was cornered and killed in a wolf attack near his work camp. Johnson draws on his experience as a Crown prosecutor to forensically deconstruct the official reports of the killing. In his telling, the finger of blame points squarely to the lack of respect given to an animal which, as a result, is becoming more dangerous to humans. Johnson believes millennia of Indigenous teaching could have saved a life and rehabilitated the wolf to its honoured place."--
