There is a ranch where wolves watch over sheep.
“The Pack” included three wolves that had different styles of watching the sheep. Sneaky put on a sheep costume in order to spy and pick the plumpest sheep. Sly was charming and gracious, playfully leading lambs to slaughter. Butcher was a cruel, cold-blooded killer who hungered for tasty sheep meat. The wolves were tyrannical, discord was not tolerated, and trouble-making sheep mysteriously vanished. These tactics squashed any sheep uprisings; the wolves were cruel and wicked.
However, a few sheep were not intimidated by their overseers and they confronted the wolves. They formed a group called “The Black Sheep.” They were militant and preached independence from tyranny that the wolves inflicted on them. They espoused unity and educated the other sheep about their ancestry and history as well as teaching self-reliance.
Almost immediately Sly, Sneaky and Butcher were hearing rumblings from informants in the flock. The three wolves found out that there were black sheep stirring up dissension, which caused the wolves to gather the flock and threatened slaughter if the sheep would not tell them who was creating trouble. The sheep were firm and took the bullying from the wolves.
The wolves, believing the sheep were weak and simple animals, bribed, blackmailed and tried their best to break their will. They plowed the grass so the sheep would starve, put dirty water in their troughs and sent the malcontents to Butcher for slaughter. The sheep withstood the blitzkrieg.
Soon other organizations saw what was happening to the sheep and protested the cruelty of wolves. Although the others had different motives, they wanted complete removal of the wolves.
Tensions were running high between the wolves and the others; there were many around the ranch protesting the wolves, asking them to leave. The wolves were upset and howled and growled as if possessed by werewolves.
The ranchers and hunters waved guns and shot into the sky, this finally ended in silence when a black sheep, staggering with a gunshot wound, fell with a loud thud. This black sheep was the first victim in what was later named the Wolf War.
The hunters captured, shot, hung and hacked the wolves’ heads for trophies. Sly, Sneaky, and Butcher managed to escape and ran off into the wilderness.
The sheep celebrated because there were no more wolves to terrorize them. The farm was auctioned off to a shepherd who loved and protected them from any predator attacks. He put barbed wire around the fence, laid out traps and called the wolf hunters if the line of defense was broken.
The sheep were living well; they were well-fed, had great living conditions and not one was ever slaughtered. The wolves were then considered scavengers, in the same category as raccoons, opossums and other rodents.
One day, as a hiker was going through the forest he saw Sly, Sneaky and Butcher along with a few other wolves looking starved, worn and mangled. The hiker called an animal expert to evaluate the wolves and discovered that only a few wolves existed, so they were taken to the zoo in order to save them.
While at the zoo, Sly, Sneaky and Butcher told the zookeeper about the brutal massacres inflicted on them. They talked about the savage hands of the hunters and the zookeeper cried, “How could men be so cruel?” They decided to contact an animal rights group as well.
They began protesting the hunters with signs showing pictures of cute baby wolves and signs addressing animal cruelty. Eventually wolves were put onto the protected list. This meant anyone caught killing a wolf was considered a poacher and was severely punished.
The wolf population rebounded and after some time and began to sit on the board of animal rights groups. They complained bitterly that sheep were their main diet, and they shouldn’t have to eat rats and other rodents.
Soon wolves started to gain control of the school system, libraries and courts. They made new laws banning Little Red Riding Hood, Big Bad Wolf, as well as Biblical scriptures that portrayed wolves unfavorably. Later, they created the Barbed Wire Act, making it unlawful to fence a herd of sheep.
They spoke directly to the sheep telling them to leave their shepherd. Sly, Sneaky and Butcher claimed they were rehabilitated. They said the shepherds were too bossy and watched their every move. They said that the sheep could take care of themselves, they pleaded with the sheep to give them another chance and they promised freedom in return.
The sheep were confused because there were not any black sheep to offer them leadership. The sheep said, “We should abandon the shepherd, we don’t need someone watching over us.” The sheep decided to give the wolves another chance because of their promise of less supervision, along with more morality and freedom.
All the sheep went to the shepherd and said, “We want you to leave, we do not want you telling us what to do. The wolves promised us freedom.”
The shepherd felt betrayed and angry. “You sheep are blind. Can’t you see I am protecting you from the wolves? The wolves are pulling the wool over your eyes, don’t you remember what it was like when the wolves were in charge?”
Then one of the sheep stood up and defended the wolves saying they are different now, they are considerate and sincere.
The shepherd screamed, “A wolf is a wolf and will always be a wolf.”
As the shepherd headed off, the wolves quickly moved in and seized the farm. First they put parameters around the farm so sheep couldn’t escape. The wolves salivated because the shepherd had allowed the sheep to become plump and juicy once again, Butcher had fantasies of devouring the juicy sheep.
Soon the sheep realized they were hornswoggled and today the wolves run one of the biggest slaughterhouses for sheep.
