What a strange era this age of social media is. Any idiot can start a Facebook page on just about any sick subject under the sun. There, as humane activists have found out time and again, they can get away with saying whatever they want about what they’d like to do to non-human animals. Things they could never say about humans are fair game to say about non-human animals.
Facebook does not monitor or police any of the horrid anti-animal sites out there; even the lowest gutter-dweller can receive encouragement in the form of “likes” for the perverse and abusive statements they come up with to voice their disdain for animals such as wolves.
This blog, on the other hand, is monitored to weed out comments like this one I just received from someone identifying himself only as “Bucksmasher” (typos are his):
“Wolves are no good. They serve no usefull purpose. They are not endangered as a species ,they never have been. The ESA listing in the US is a fraud. Wolf huggers are mentally sick. They cry when they hear about a wolf being shot but they have no sympathy for the the deer fawns and elk calves…”
Sure we do–we have a hell of a lot more sympathy for deer and elk than someone using the demented handle “Bucksmasher.”
Here are some of the outrageous comments found on one of the many anti-wolf Facebook pages, in this case calling itself “Save Western Wildlife” (which to them obvious means, “Kill all the wolves so hunters have more ‘game’ for themselves.”) Their comments are in reference to this photo of Yellowstone wolves, whom they threaten to shoot within the park…
We are after breeding pair. Do you know where they are?

I see there’s one less bull elk as well going by the bone sticking up on he far right, which must leave 3 left! I seen on the news last night that the count showed good herd numbers. I guess those counters have better eye sight than the tourists and hunters that have a hard time finding them.
