Wisconsin Trophy Hunters Slaughter 91 Wolves in 5 days, Go Over Limit In Two Zones

Wisconsin Wolf Slaughter

Wisconsin DNR Wolf “Harvest”

It’s bad enough 91 wolves have been slaughtered in Wisconsin since October 15 (just five days) but notice Wisconsin trophy hunters are going over  legal limits of killing wolves. In Zone 1 by 5 wolves and in Zone 2 by 14 wolves. Is the DNR ignoring what amounts to poaching of wolves by not monitoring the hunt closely and letting hunters kill wolves with impunity?

Please flood their lines and ask why hunters have been allowed to go over the legal hunting limit in Zone 2 by 14 wolves and Zone 1 by 5 wolves. Do they care?

Hundreds of minks set free

Hundreds of minks set free at farm accused of animal cruelty
Hundreds of minks (not the ones pictured) in Montérégie were set free overnight on August 20. Police are investigating, and would not confirm it is the same fur farm targeted by animal rights activists online.

MONTREAL — Hundreds of minks were set free on August 19 at a farm in Montérégie accused of mistreating its animals.

The farm’s owner called the Sûreté du Québec at 8 a.m. August 20, reporting that cages housing the minks had been opened. When SQ officers arrived, they discovered that most of the animals remained in the barn close to their open cages, but that some managed to escape into the wild.

One of the main hypotheses of the SQ is that one or…

Hunters are Uncivilized

Exposing the Big Game:

When Jeffery Dalmer’s story was told, it totally mirrored what I see in hunters, I don’t discriminate, the species of animal that is in the freezer, it is all flesh and blood of an animal that was murdered, a life taken unwillingly, unjustly is a life taken.

Very hard to understand why and how, there is a certain sect of society, that is comprised of and focused around a almost satanic dark world of blood and guts spilled of innocent creatures of no crimes. These dark seeded individuals, wallow in the pain and suffering that they inflict, they take photos, videos, trophies.  When Jeffery Dalmer’s story was told, it totally mirrored what I see in hunters, I don’t discriminate, the species of animal that is in the freezer, it is all flesh and blood of an animal that was murdered, a life taken unwillingly, unjustly is a life taken. Hunters are quick to cite the bible verses to interpret and fit their own egocentric blood lust desires. And to take these verses literal that possibly, some other sociopathic killer wrote eons ago, and really, who the hell was the writer? Do we really know?…

Wisconsin Trophy Hunters Wipe Out 65 Wolves In Just 4 Days..

Deja’ Vu – Slaughtered Wisconsin Wolf – 1909 – What’s different today?

October 18, 2014

There’s a wolf killing frenzy going on in Wisconsin. In just four days Wisconsin trophy hunters have slaughtered 65 wolves, that’s over 16 wolves per day. Wolves are being tracked and trailed by up to 6 dogs per hunter and I don’t believe for one second that some of those wolves haven’t been directly killed by dogs or at the very least bitten multiple times before they’re killed by the hunters. Can you imagine the terror wolves face as their chased by barking dogs and hunters?

Besides legalized dog/wolf fighting,Wisconsin allows wolves to be trapped, arrowed, shot and baited. And they’re killing wolf puppies, who are barely eight months old. Trophy hunting is sick and anyone who engages in it needs their heads examined.

The Badger state trophy hunters are acting like barbarians, this is…

Anti-Wolf Comments Demonstrate Ignorance and Hysteria Wolves Face….

A typical wolf about to take your children and eat your job!

It’s been awhile since I cleaned out my spam folder and deleted anti-wolf comments. This is just a small sampling, I could write an entire book on these little gems. They’d be laughable if it wasn’t so serious for wolves. They show the mentality wolves are facing and demonstrate once again why wolves need protection under the ESA.

Wolf Hysteria

“Wolf hysteria (also known as wolf persecution, or rarely, lupophobia) is the widespread public hatred of wolves, incorporating both their enduring role as folk devils, and societal attitudes favouring policies of active persecution of wolves, and opposition and resistance to policies aiming to protect existing wild populations, or reintroduce the species into former ranges where it has become extinct relatively recently. The phenomenon shares much in common with moral panics, including the use of scaremongering,

“My favorite recipe for wolf is to skin it, piss on it and let it rot for the maggots. Then cash in the hide and watch people like you squirt a tear over it.” — Dwayne Glosemeyer, Wisconsin Wolf Hunt Facebook page

Dwayne Glosemeyer’s in-your-face arrogance flinging torture and disrespect for wolves at wolf advocates mirrors the hatred of wolves promoted by the Department of Natural Resources. The DNR has a flagrant disregard for science, nature, and the majority of citizens in Wisconsin.

Paul Paquet is a world-renowned Canadian biologist who has been studying wolves for over four decades. He is on the advisory/science and recovery board of the Living with Wolves organization started by Jim and Jamie Dutcher after they lived with and filmed the Sawtooth Pack for six years. The organization’s goal is to stop the slaughter of wolves. Jane Goodall and Robert Redford are on the…

It’s Official: Wolves Are Protected In California!

October 9, 2014

Even though, officially, there are no known gray wolves in California, the state extended endangered species protection to canis lupus today. This is critically important, since the USFWS plans to rubber stamp a national wolf delisting plan, removing all federal protections for wolves in the lower 48. Without state protections, wolves across the country will face tremendous risk.

Gray wolves are subjected to persecution in Montana,Idaho, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, even Washington and Oregon, where they remain listed. Wyoming wolves, until recently, could be shot on sight in 80% of the state. Last week, US District Judge Amy Berman Jackson,  placed Wyoming wolves  back on the Endangered Species List. Her ruling was the result of a lawsuit challenging the state’s faulty “wolf management” plan, specifically the predator zone, where wolves could…

Nature Magazine examines reasons behind wolf hatred and the systematic campaign to remove them from the lower forty-eight. It merits repeating that for thousands of years Native Americans were able to live with wolves and bears, while settlers saw them as a threat. Even the famed naturalist James Audubon partook in torturing wolves, which was particularly shocking to learn.

As noted in Michael Robinson’s “Predatory Bureaucracy: The Extermination of Wolves and the Transformation of the West”, the federal government became the wolf killing arm for the livestock industry.

By understanding the roots of wolf prejudice it’s clear to see why wolves have been demonized in American culture. The wolf has paid dearly for these attitudes. Even though…
