Between stories about the impending ice storm and Christmas parades, there isn’t that much from the front pages today.
Charlotte — The Observer publishes a wonderful “small” story on the human side of Panthers fullback Mike Tolbert that is well-worth the five minutes it’ll take to read it. Were it a video it would be featured on Upworthy.com.
The paper also has a piece about the shooting of the rare red wolves. “Five wolves have been shot since mid-October, and the last trace of a sixth – a cut-off radio collar – suggests foul play. All six were of breeding age, and one wolf had pups earlier this year.” Our state’s wildlife commission could help stop this practice, but doesn’t seem to want to. Wildlife, indeed.
