Outrage Over Wolf Kill Bill Covers All Spectrums

21 Jul

In today’s edition of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel an article appeared showing that outrage over the wolf kill bill and the process that led to it has even outraged some hunters. When a writer like Paul Smith, who glamorizes all kinds of killing, writes an article pointing out absurd points of this bill, you know something is wrong. Here is the article:

Lawmakers’ wolf harvest raises hackles

While I would never call the killing of any animal a “harvest” some very valid points are made in this article. Of course the selfishness of some hunters also show through. Take this for example:

William Andrews hunts for grouse and woodcock near Clam Lake.

“Please do not allow the use of leg traps for wolf hunting during grouse and woodcock hunting season,” Andrews said. “I can’t imagine the possibility of a beautiful bird hunting dog having a leg caught in a wolf trap.”

What about the beautiful wolf, coyote, or any other animal caught in one of these barbaric devices? And people wonder why we think most hunters are selfish?

That aside, Smith points out that this ridiculous bill increases the likelihood of a lawsuit being filed soon to stop this insanity. When unabashed pro-hunting people even question the wisdom of a killing proposal, something is not right. It looks like Scott Suder, George Meyer, and all of the other extremist anti-wolfers may have alienated and outraged more people than us “tree huggers.” In my own area I am hearing more and more people who are furious at this insane proposal. The question that I ask is: Where was this outrage when the bill was in the Legislature?

    I think the Bear Hunters BIT^& Scott Suder will be hiding under his desk after we get through with him. Nice thorough job he did consulting with all the DNR wolf experts….. Little fuc^&ing weasel. Those poor bird hunters worrying about their dogs geting caught in a wolf trap…….I almost want to see a bunch of hunting dogs getting their legs mangled in a few traps to get people to see how reckless this wolf bill is. It’s OK if it’s a coyote or wolf though

    I went through the wolf hunt bill line by line & wrote my Assembly person, my mom’s Assembly person, and talked to a friend who is an Assembly person (who voted against the bill). I’m sure there were also many others who questioned this Bill and contacted their Legislators, but it went through so fast that there was not enough time to get the word out about it. Of course, the bear hunters knew about it right away, since they wrote it.

    Pray for the lawsuit. I don’t wish that ANY dogs get injured or killed because of this. Even the bear hounders dogs.

    The Wisconsin Conservation[what a joke] Congress is a big culprit also. The went to Salazar to help him get the ball rolling. Aldo Leopold must be rolling in his grave. What a bunch of hypocrits. The Wilderness Society is truer to Leopold than that bunch of phonies.

      Yes, definitely the WI Conservation Congress is very responsible for this proposed mass slaughter of wolves. They are a brotherhood (& sisterhood) only concerned about killing as many animals as possible in as many ways as possible as often as possible. I really don’t understand how they have so much pull with the DNR & it’s policy making. Money buys influence in politics-who is the behind the scenes bankroller? I don’t get it.

        The “Conservation Congress” is supposed to be a “citizens” gathering to make policy suggestions to the DNR. In reality it is a good old boy network of hunters and trappers who vote each year to kill more and more species and increase the killing of the ones they can already hunt. The more attention that we focus on how un-democratic the whole wildlife “management” process is in Wisconsin and across the country the more chance we have to force change. Along with Scott Suder, the biggest threat to wildlife in this state is George Meyer and his deceptively named hunting group the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation. He and his brother, Corky Meyer, are diehard supporters of the most barbaric methods of hunting and trapping there is such as hounding. Corky Meyer believes that hounders should be reimbursed over $10,000 by the DNR for each dog killed by wolves. These people are extremists who some how were allowed to have massive influence on our wildlife policy in this state.

    Outrage doesn’t seem to fill the. Anger,fierce pain we all feel. Can’t walker be stopped before Wisconsin turns into a vast polluted waste land devoid of any living thing? I hope so.
