Propaganda Email Sent from Walker’s Office About Wolf Kill Bill

Dear Concerned Citizen,

Thank you for contacting me regarding the recently passed wolf hunting bill. I appreciate your concern about this highly sensitive matter.

Given that the wolf was just removed from the endangered species list in the Western Great Lakes area, I see this as the perfect time to show that Wisconsin is ready to properly manage our wolf population. Wisconsin, through the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), provided scientific and legal evidence in support of delisting numerous times during the lengthy process, and I was pleased to see a favorable outcome. The federal threshold for consideration of delisting the wolf in our area required a population of 100 wolves in the combined Wisconsin and Michigan area. In Wisconsin alone, we have exceeded that at least eight times over.

With the authority granted to the DNR in this legislation, I have no doubt that our wolf population will be managed using the best scientific practices. The DNR is required to divide the state into management zones, each with its own harvest quota. Any of these zones can be closed to hunting within 24 hours if the DNR deems it necessary. This will allow the Department to closely and responsibly regulate the harvest. In addition, there is a federally required five year period during which the wolf population will be closely monitored. Our goal is to maintain a stable and sustainable wolf population in Wisconsin for generations to come.

Again, thank you for contacting me on this important issue.

Sincerely,

Governor Scott Walker

Yup, Wisconsin sure is showing that they are ready to properly “manage” the wolf population. I would like to know what “science” was used in this bill? I certainly think science when I hear the name of the Wisconsin Bear Hunters Association who wrote the bill. Don’t you? If Walker is so proud of this bill, why doesn’t he mention how these wolves will be “managed?” Wisconsin is now the only state in the country that allows wolves to be hunted by dogs and at night. Even the extreme wolf hating states like Idaho do not allow this.

As I said yesterday this is just another reason to vote to recall this guy. People like Walker use the term “science” when it comes to killing wolves, but ignore it when it comes to issues like evolution and women’s rights.

Also, can someone please start a petition to remove the word “harvest” from the English language. The word has been corrupted by hunting/trapping groups and fish and game departments as a cover for the word KILL. You harvest crops. You KILL animals.

    You harvest corn, not animals.

    Proponents of wildlife killing always try to use fluffy words to describe their actions. They don’t kill, they “harvest.” Animals aren’t born, their “recruited.” Another one is calling killing “conservation.” Of course if you criticize these thing you are an anti-American “anti” because you are attacking their hunting “tradition.” Another thing that they do if you disagree with them and their pseudo-science is to call you a “whacko” or a “nut job.” I don’t approve of killing something for “sport” or “recreation” so that makes me a “whacko nut job.” What kind of world are we living in?

    here is a good way to manage them how about you leave them alone they are not harming anything and you know it all the lies that are being made up have no proof and you know that too there is alot of proof that wolves are not doing what you and your rich cattle rancher are say they are doing and you know that too it is amazing you know so much but you do nothing and harvesting is plants not animals you can’t grow wolves from the ground one day when that bobcat is looking at you like you are his next lunch you will wish you had not kill those wolves but it all comes down to who fills your pockets more

      Ranchers get reimbursed every time a wolf allegedly kills one of their livestock. They also have the mis-named USDA “Wildlife Services” contract killers available on a whim to come in and kill wiles that are “suspected” of depredations. The reality is that it is the hunters and trappers who want to kill wolves because they are competition for that “big buck” that they want to hang on their wall. Agriculture and hunters/trappers are in bed with each other and support each others goals. With the recent news that CWD is now in northern Wisconsin they hunting community should be embracing the wolf but they won’t.

    Gee, funny how “herd boy” didn’t mention that even the illiterate redneck trolls in Wyoming, Idaho and Montana didn’t propose letting those ethically challenged slob hunters at Wisc Bear Hunters Assoc use their mutts to hunt carnivores……What an embarrassment……The head mammal ecologist wasn’t even consulted for his opinion regarding this whole process…..How’s that for sound science based management…..

    Also let’s get rid of “bag limits”, ” wolf management” and “fair chase”.

      Good point. In fact I remember a letter to the editor of a local newspaper a couple of years ago where a hunter was complaining that the paper used the words “weapon” and “kill” instead of “firearm” and “harvest” when talking about the deer hunting season. Can you believe that? The editor actually set them straight by saying that if they were tough enough to go shoot animals they could describe exactly what they are doing instead of trying to fluff it up and sanitize the act. And they accuse us of viewing the world in a “Bambi” way?
