You know, it's a wolf... A predator. Its idea of fun is hunting (Real or pretend). Not that I defend hunting or anything, just pointing out the irony in your comment.

there is no irony. how else is she supposed to call it? is there a special word for the hunting of predators or what?

Let me stress that the irony is that she said hunting isn't funny and wolves hunt for fun...

ALL predators hunt to survive. Big cats, wolves, weasels, raptors etc. etc. Circle of life dude.

I've always thought of survival and fun as two different things.
Fun is one thing, survival is another.

Doesn't mean they can't enjoy doing what they are wired to do. From a young age, wolf cubs have fun "hunting" one another and other small animals.

When they play, it's actually training for hunting. Wolves do enjoy hunting, it's fun to them, it's what they're wired to do.

actually the title is a slight adjusting of the line "bang bang, you shot me down."
which comes fro mthe song "bang bang" by "cher". The song is actually a love song about a girl who got dumped.

My guess is that the title is not hunting related at all, but rather reffers to the wolf loosing the fight about a mate.


lyrics for the song i reffered to: [link]

yes!and i love the first versions of this by nancy sinatra an her father frank sinatra .i just focused on the"shot" word.you`re right,but when i saw the lying animal with this title it was sad for me...

As both hunter and animal interested I understand what you mean.
The wolf is a beautiful animal that does not deserve its reputation.

The title and the image together is what makes it so sad, yet so beautiful
