As a pro-living wildlife website we often get comments from hunters and trappers who try to justify their activities through various ways. Most of the time they end up in the spam folder where they belong. Some times I just have to share certain ones. This is one of them. The comment that follows is the first time a bear hounder actually had the nerve to come on this site and whine about wolves eating every animal in the forest and having two of his bear hounds killed. Anyone who reads this site regularly knows that this is the last place a bear hounder should come for sympathy or to whine about their activities. Here is the comment from someone named Shane Thiel that showed up for approval this evening:
“The comments on this article are a joke right? Are you people really that bland to what is really happening? Wisconsin needs this wolf hunt and should have had it long ago already!! You think hunters are in charge? Wow!! If hunters were honestly in charge the wolf would have never been allowed back in Wisconsin! I have also found wolf scat with elk, bear, deer, and moose hair in it! If the wolves are not managed those animals will be gone! I suggest getting out of the city and actually travel to northern Wisconsin!! People are not blaming the low deer numbers on wolves, even though they are part of the problem, the DNRs antlerless hunts is the main reason for low population numbers. I recently just had two of my bear hounds killed by wolves and should be the first one to say”
While I love all animals, especially canines, I really have a hard time finding sympathy for a bear hounder having his dogs killed by wolves. I am sure that to alleviate his pain and suffering he got a nice fat check from the DNR for his “beloved” dogs. I also knew that bear hounders were full of shit, but I never knew that they were experts in the contents of it. Apparently a wolf poop DNA test comes with hounder licenses today. That wolf sure had a diverse diet. Wild animals eating other wild animals. The nerve! Wolves are going to eat all of the bears now too! I didn’t know that. How dare nature be nature.
This is exactly the misinformation and flat out lies that are being spread by anti-wolf factions across the country. This guy at least admits that hunters are the true enemy of the wolf and that they shouldn’t have been “allowed” back into Wisconsin in the first place. It takes quite a bit of nerve for a bear hounder to think that he would have any credibility with living wildlife advocates.
