Our wildlife in Wisconsin and across the nation are under siege. While there are hundreds of animal welfare groups out there we seem to have no concept about how to coordinate. This is why we keep losing to the massive coordination, outreach, and funding that hunting and trapping groups are able to muster.
We NEED your help.
We need to get ALL animal welfare groups on the same page and to speak as ONE voice. This is what the hunting groups do, and that is a major reason for their success. Enough of the vegan vs vegetarian arguments. Enough of the dog vs cat arguments. We are ALL in this together and every one of us living wildlife advocates must realize that ALL wildlife is part of the web of life, and all of it is under assault by bloodthirsty special interests. We even have some hunters on our side. We NEED to coordinate and pool our resources in a true grassroots way.
All of us talk a big game, but no one wants to take the reigns and pull it all together. I am willing to step up. Are you? The Republicans and Republican-lite Democrats do not care what we think. We need to make them care. While a large majority of Americans approve of sustenance hunting, they do not approve of the most barbaric of methods used such as hounding and trapping. The majority also do not like sport or trophy hunting. We need to use that public opinion to our advantage. The hounders and trappers with the help of groups like the deceptively named hunting group, The Wisconsin Wildlife Federation, have almost total control of the Wisconsin Legislature. There is a widespread notion that the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation is a pro-wildlife group because they are affiliated with the National Wildlife Federation. The Wisconsin Wildlife Federation is NOT pro-wildlife. They are pro-killing wildlife and are staunch supporters of hounding, trapping, and killing most of the wolf population. We need you to inform people of what the true motive of this group is. This is the group that dominates wildlife decisions in Wisconsin because most people do not realize that they are a hunting group federation. If you love wildlife DO NOT give this group once cent until they represent ALL wildlife enthusiasts, not just hunters, trappers, and hounders.
The Wisconsin Wildlife Federation does one thing right: they know how to fundraise and organize. Why can’t we do the same thing?
If you know anyone who loves living wildlife, please ask them to get involved. WE VOW is only three and a half months old, so our influence is very limited. Our goal is to set up tables at various gatherings to spread the word about the war on our wildlife. This takes time and funding. We ask that if anyone can help, please contact us or use the donate button on the side. If you have any contacts with other living wildlife or animal welfare groups please ask them to join with us in this struggle. Wildlife is under assault like never before, and now is not the time for petty differences. We need ALL living wildlife advocates to band together in this fight.
