Another “sportsman” partaking in “ethical” practices. How can this be legal?

Our Compass

BACKGROUND | SOURCE MARC BEKOFF

Following up on the good news about the release of two dolphins into the wild, I learned this morning about a most heinous and perverse situation in Alaska. Healy, Alaska trapper Coke Wallace “apparently walked a horse out to an area off the Stampede Trail near the boundary of Denali National Park – an area made famous by the 1996 book ‘Into the Wild’ – shot the horse, and set snares all around the area hoping to catch wolves attracted to the carcass. Wolves from Denali National Park were drawn to the dead horse, resulting in the killing of a primary reproductive female wolf from the Grant Creek (also called Toklat West) pack from the park, along with at least one other wolf. It is unknown how long the two wolves were alive in the snares before being killed and collected by the trapper…

      What is even more disturbing is that this behavior is legally sanctioned by state governments all over the country. I wish I could get an explanation why lawmakers cater to people who are obvious sadists and are a very, very small minority in our society. In Wisconsin we have 5.6 million people. There are around 8400 trappers, yet they get their every whim bowed to. These 8400 sadists are responsible for killing almost 500,000 animals a year in Wisconsin alone. 500,000! And these are just the ones that they report. How many pets, threatened, or endangered species to these sadists kill and never mention? It is 2012, not 1812. When will society look at these people for what they really are? Torturing animals is considered a precursor to doing the same thing to humans by a vast number of people in the mental health field. Then why are state governments actively promoting this activity?

    We live within the company of killers & sadists. It is very sad to read about all that happens to our wildlife. My thoughts are that we have to ban together (all of us) & fight hard to get all of the legislation & money that are used AGAINST wildlife – to be overturned & eliminated.
