Please contact your Senators and urge them to block this insane power grab. Sorry about the picture of the smiling goon with the slaughtered wolf, but this is what the modern “sportsman” looks like.

    What about the Senate? Will it pass there? Does the President have to OK it.? We need a revolution in this country. I’ve had it.

      Bobette,

      I don’t think that the Senate is stupid enough to pass such a bill. But then again I never thought they would have allowed that wolf killing “rider” to go through last year either. I have come to the conclusion that there are two Americas. One is a backward rural mindset that exploits and lets itself be exploited by the greedy and heartless corporate types that would rape and pillage every inch of our land if the money was right. They vote against their own interests because for some reason those values have been merged with what is considered to be “American” by the right wing. Then you have the other America that is viewed by those people as being “socialist,” anti-American, and other words that most of them cannot even pronounce. We think that everyone deserves a fair shake and the environment and wildlife exists as something other than as a “natural resource.”

      I posted the video of those punks in Oregon blowing up and shooting coyotes on another wildlife website. Instead of the hunters there being outraged at what the videos contained, they attacked me for posting them. One punk even said that I was as “evil” as them for posting it because it makes all hunters look bad and I was just trying to ruffle feathers. Can you believe that? You bet I was trying to ruffle feathers because people need to see these elements of the hunting community. They try to play it off as being “isolated incidents” or a few “bad apples.” It is not people like us who are making the videos, it is their fellow hunters. Maybe they should take it out on them rather than attacking me. Just take a drive around our state and look at all of the pickup trucks that have stickers on them that celebrate the killing of wildlife. Do they ever have bumper stickers that celebrate “fair chase” or the “ethics” that they always talk about? But of course I must be over exaggerating. Sorry for the rant, but I am as fed up as you are. This is not the type of country that I want to live in.

    Some good news, The Humane Society has made a move. There’s been a bill introduced, I deleted the care2 post, on ending bear hounding in California. Ther’re sure Gov. Brown will sign it . Also some wildlife goon Shwartzeneger hired will be canned. Now, if all that will move East.

      I wish California wasn’t so expensive to live in otherwise I would move there. The northeastern part of the country is generally progressive and mostly ethical when it comes to their wildlife. It is these pockets of extremism in the South, here, and the Northern Rocky Mountains where insanity reigns. Letting hunters and trappers control fish and game departments and boards is like the fox guarding the hen house.

      That’s right Bobette. The slob cougar hunter Richards was the chairman of the Ca Fish and wildlife Commission. These people set the agenda in the state. You wonder why CALdoesn’t have wolf protection in place in Caifornia! It’s the trophy hunter NRA influence of Richards….He must go bye bye

    I watched Ed on MSNBC tonight and I thought he was going to blow up over the Republicans and Ryan’s war on the poor. Things are getting serious. People can be pushed only so far and they’ll start to push back. That’s what we need to do. The sandhill people will lose it if this hunt goes through. Won’t be pretty. If they didn’t go to the big meeting and object, well let that be a lesson. I thought all of California was progressive on their wildlife. With San Francisco and all.

    Oh, don’t let the hunting psychos get to you. Keep up the good work. They are under attack and are fighting back. They need to see the damage being done .

      Thanks for your support. I really want to make a change and be a voice for the voiceless. It sounds corny, but that is how I feel.

    Just got off facebook. Minnesota’s wolf bill was stalled. Maybe for good. It was a rider on some fish bill they had. They ran TV ads. I guess the Center for Biological Diversity was there. Why didn’t that happen in Wisconsin?

      From what I was told by an HSUS employee in another state it that they were ordered by the higher ups not to put up much of a fight against the wolf kill bill in Wisconsin because they wanted an “exotic animals” ban passed. That got them real far. No exotic ban ever went anywhere this past legislative session. They sold out wolves to pander to the kill everything extremists in the hopes of getting a bill passed that obviously was not going to go anywhere. I and many others have lost faith in that organization because of acts like these. The CBD put out an “action alert” here but one rep told me that they didn’t have the funding to file a lawsuit. I guess that our wolves are now at the mercy of the kill club known as the DNR. Obviously we know where that is headed.
