A rare example of a failure of human cruelty.















A wolf, caught in the mountains of (Catholic) Northern Albania, was put into a pen with a worn-out and 'useless' donkey, so that humans could revel in a cheap and gory spectacle.

However, the wolf did not tear the donkey apart, but immediately seemed to size up the situation and simply teamed up with his fellow-victim in what amounted to a beautiful peaceful protest - which shows that wolves can be better Christians than the Pope.

(But of course, any mammal is likely to be "a better Christian" than any Christian.)

The Italian text of the report appears in the commentary (below).

Il 9 maggio 2007 nelle montagne dell'Albania settentrionale precisamente nella città nordoccidentale di Patok, a circa 40 km dalla capitale Tirana, un lupo viene catturato e messo in gabbia.

Per sfamarlo i suoi carcerieri decidono di dargli un "pasto vivo", cioè un vecchio asinello che, sfruttato per lunghi anni dai suoi padroni viene così ricompensato.Ma che succede? Entrambi gli animali, prigionieri della cattiveria, della brama di possesso dell'uomo e del suo egoismo, fanno qualcosa di inaspettato... Il lupo guarda negli occhi l'asinello e lo stesso fà il povero vecchietto.

I due diventano amici, poichè in un mondo dominato dagli uomini, preda e predatore perdono di significato e resta soltanto il rispetto reciproco e l'amicizia di due esseri condannati ad essere entrambi sotto il giogo dell'uomo dominatore.

The funny part is that nowhere in the Italian version it mentions Christians of any type, which makes me wonder where you got your facts from, or your account is JUST an opinion? Anyway, there are many types of Christians, Jewish, Muslims, Buddhists, atheists and the regular jerk like you. Don't spread prejudice, and you may call yourself a better person, otherwise what makes you think you are better than they are? There you go, my free advice of the day, specially for you. Have a great day.
