Sampling of Anti-Wolf Comments from “Sportsmen”

18 Jul

While reading articles about yesterday’s rubber-stamping of Wisconsin’s wolf slaughter proposal, I came across several interesting comments. Check these out:

Comment following Chippewa Herald article:

“A 201 wolf limit is a joke. Sportsman will have to follow the lead of residents in Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana. Simply do not register your kills to insure the “limit” is never met. This also does not address the other issue. That being proper habitat. Wolves should be completely eliminated from areas where there isn’t proper habitat. That is only common sense. Shoot on sight and trap at will in such areas.”

But I thought “sportsmen” were ethical and followed the rules? I guess I was wrong about that. How about this one following a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article:

“Wolves are not interested in co-existance. When you meet up with a wolf in the woods, you try it sometime and let us know how it works for you. Do you think it’s “human and humane” to kill off all the white-tail deer (to mention but one form of prey) in order to keep the wolves around? The people of Wisconsin killed off the Timber Wolves for a reason and like a couple of dumb-dumbs, the DNR felt the need to bring them back. I am convinced that if they had to live with them in their back-yard like I do they would be singing a different tune. Having to keep my kids in a fenced in yard so the wolves don’t carry off my 1 -year-old is pretty infuriating. Especially when they were Federally protected and I was facing prison time even if I was acting in self-defense! Thank you, Governor Walker and your sound judgement and caring about Wisconsin citizens FIRST and the pretty, tourist-attracting wild-life SECOND – as it should be!!!”

Maybe if this guy practiced a little bit of that “personal responsibility” that right wingers keep preaching about, he wouldn’t have to worry about wolves “carrying off” his one year old child. And what kind of backwoods idiot leaves their one year old unattended outside? Apparently he thinks that he needed to build a fence so that his one year old can run loose outside unsupervised? The ignorance and irrational fear of these people is truly astounding.

Then comes one of the most absurd comment that I have ever seen on the internet. This comes from another Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article:

“We could control wolves the way the Indians did: Athabascans controlled wolf numbers to protect caribou and moose, by keeping track of wolf dens in hunting areas and systematically killing pups.

Other methods of wolf control include wiping an animal’s blood on knives or sharp rocks. Wolves cut themselves as they licked away the blood, bleeding to death through their mouths.

Also, some trappers would coil sharpened baleen or willow sticks into taut wads, cover them with fat and freeze the device. Once gobbled by wolves, the wads would open, piercing stomachs and killing the animal.

Hunting wolves with dogs is more sporting than killing pups in dens, cutting their tongues, or a sharp stick in the stomach.

BTW many tribes find it acceptable to kill bald eagles. Just saying.”

I rest my case. This is just a sampling of the insanity that has shown up just since yesterday from anti-wolf zealots. We need to counter this insanity and call out these people for their lies and misinformation. They get to kill at least 25 percent of the population this year and they are still whining and even advocating more poaching. I do not trust the DNR to protect wolves so it is up to us to spread the word about what is really occurring. After the killing season starts if anyone comes across photographs or videos of wolves being tortured or packs of dogs fighting wolves in Wisconsin please do not hesitate to send them to us. This is not a question of IF it is WHEN.

If anyone comes across over insane comments please share them here.

    You can’t fix crazy and ignorant. You can’t educate them either. You just hope they have a hunting accident in the woods

    It seems that you can’t even reason with this people. They have a mind set and they are not going to let you change it. It’s so sad that the world has come to this, but I won’t give up trying. Don’t they realize that once they have killed everything, there will be no world worth living in.

    Wow – what a bunch of crazy, ignorant assholes. And the GOP is cutting education? We have enough illiteracy out there that is scary – case in point – the quotes from the hillbillies up north & out west. How sad that folks still can’t read & or comprehend SOUND SCIENCE OR BIOLOGY by people who have made this there life’s work. Well, as chance said up above “you can’t fix crazy or ignorant” Amen to that.

    I just love this comment from the Milwaukee Sentinel Journal:

    “The DNR Re-introduced Wolves because they are less than clear thinking logical people sometimes. Wolves do no play well with people, that is just the truth. Wis had Wolves when Wis had Wilderness, there is no Wilderness in Wis anymore. Sorry I wish there was also. Wolves do not belong in Wis. Should we introduce Siberian Tigers into Wis also ?”

    There’s no wilderness in Wisconsin anymore? So then where do all the wild animals of Wisconsin live, including the over one million deer these dimwits are always claiming the “out-of-control” population of wolves is chowing down on?
