At Least One Sadist From Wolf Torture Videos Cited for Not Having “Trapper Education” And More Hounder Insanity

26 Nov

Last week, I posted several videos from the “Vee” family that showed them laughing and posing for the camera before and after killing two trapped wolves. Three of the videos showed a collared wolf howling and crying while languishing in the trap for several minutes. It turns out that the killer of the collared wolf was fined for not having attended a “trapper education” course and the dead wolf was confiscated from him. This is the email that we received from  a DNR official who we are not going to name.:

For your information the man who shot the radio collared wolf will be fined and the wolf was confiscated from him.  He was not legally licensed to trap wolves, in part because he had not taken trapper education classes.  We had tried to require training for anyone planning to trap wolves, but were unable to get special wolf trapping training that into the rules.  But all trappers need to have taken trapper education classes.  A major  part of trapper education programs are teaching people ethics of trapping and attempting to dispatch captured animals as humanely and quickly as possible.  Letting the wolf struggle in the trap while they were videoing it instead of just quickly euthanizing it certainly was not ethical.
 
We did provide voluntary training for wolf trapping and I would guess neither group took that class.  The first pair that commented about shooting the wolf in the face were certainly not ethical.   But a well-placed shot to the head can be an approved method of euthanasia approved by the American Medical Veterinary Association.  But putting it on a video, and making comments as they did certainly was not ethical.  I could not see well enough how well the shot was made to the head. Even with a well-placed shot into the brain, there still may be some residual muscle and nerve action after the animal was shot. 
 
Thanks for bringing these to my attention.  They were not easy to watch.  It looks like at least 1 of these individual will end up getting fined. 
 
Happy Thanksgiving
While we are happy that at least one of these sadists will be getting a fine, we are not happy that the DNR claims in this article that there were no “violations” in the videos:

Randy Stark, the DNR’s chief warden, said, as of late last week, the agency cited five wolf hunters and trappers during the hunt: one for trapping with untagged traps, two citations to hunters who purchased a trapping license without attending a trapper education course, and two citations to a wolf hunter for using illegal bait and having a loaded firearm in a vehicle.

Stark said the agency also investigated several videos posted online that showed wolf hunters videotaping live, trapped wolves and possibly not killing the animals immediately and humanely, as required by law.

But he said wardens concluded that no violations occurred and the animals were shot quickly and humanely.

So videotaping a trapped and suffering wolf for several minutes is perfectly acceptable, and “shot quick” according to the DNR? Really? The same article also points out how the DNR is already looking to increase the slaughter for next year. Then we have the bear hounders whining again about how hounding is their “right” and compares it to biking and swimming.

One of the groups that pushed for the wolf hunt and the use of dogs is the Wisconsin Bear Hunters Association. Carl Schoettel, of Neosho, vice president of the organization, said last week that the case is less about success rates and more about the rights of hunters.

“It surprises me, too, that the success rate has been so good,” Schoettel said.

“But we’ve been very consistent about saying that, regardless, it is our right to use hounds no matter what animal we’re hunting … It’s a hunter rights issue. It’s about hounds. This is a lifestyle. Some people like to bike and some people like to swim. We like to run dogs.

So legalized animal fighting and tormenting wildlife with dogs is the same as biking and swimming? Remember hunters, these sadists are your “voice.” So let me get this straight this:

And this:

Is the same as this:

And we are the “extremists?” We are “ignorant?” We live in “la-la” land? Good job hunters, these are the people  who now represent you in Wisconsin. Keep feeding us this insanity, bear hounders, and we will keep posting it.

    The horse situation was brought up on the View this morning. One of the actresses on Nashville something or whatever TV series is an advocate. I’ve been keepng up with the WSJ and have come to the conclusion that these people are totally oblivious to violence. Then this crap about how easy it is to shoot wolves for sport in Wisconsin. How the landscape makes it so. And then that ass Durkin, the WSJ sports writer had a wolf tag and didn’t shoot the wolf nearby. Let’s have a pity party. God will get every one of them. The paper has cut the outdoors section in half. What does that say .

      Durkin makes me sick. He is nothing but a big cry baby shill for every extremist act of “hunting” in this state. Remember this is the same scumbag who wrote an article bragging about what a badass he and his buddies were for killing bunnies.

    The slob hounder was right about one thing. This is animal cruelty vs hunters rights….these so called traditions by these fake sportsmen reflect the very worst of human nature. these people are bloodthirsty degenerates

    Not to mention that the wolf hunting is probably so successful as wolves are not accustomed to fearing humans as they now have to, of watching their every step for fear of stepping into a trap. What a sick sick world we have made for wildlife and for these amazing wolves. Lets do something to change it by next season.

    Hunter’s rights? WTF! Killing is NOT a right of any human being, animals are not fair game for your sick and twisted mind settings. A shot to the head of a perfectly healthy animal is murder. Since it is so “morally” correct for humans to dispatch others in such fashion, “hunters” should be marching down the street carrying Jeffrey Dahmer.

    Gerard sent a response where he claims he is a “bare” hunter……Is it me or are most of the hunters in Northern Wisconsin illiterate?
    They really need to do something up there with the school system. Maybe it’s not the teachers- it might be the defective gene pool- and way too many days out “huntin” and “trappin” instead of “readin” and “writin”
