“Sometimes they need Pepsid” - Meet an Aspiring Wolf from a Remote Village

Alex the wolf may appear as a shy individual. This one-year old gray wolf allows his fellows to take the first step closer to the fence, while he stays at a distance, lying gently on the ground. We the humans already stare fascinated at these animals.

"We can no longer be silent about Pakistan's safe havens," Trump said on Aug. 21 in Fort Myer Arlington, Va. "Pakistan has much to gain from partnering with our effort in Afghanistan. It has much to lose by continuing to harbor terrorists."
