Please read this excellent opinion piece in The Missoulian newspaper by Bill Clarke about the horrors of trapping. The article calls out these sadists for what they really are: psychopaths with zero empathy. Over 8,000 of these very same sadists kill almost 500,000 animals each year in Wisconsin. Our wolves are soon to be added to that list. And this is what the Wisconsin DNR labels as “recreation.” From the article:
“Psychopaths are proof that making moral judgments without empathy is dangerous and leads to very ugly results, for if you can’t “feel for” what you can hurt, then you have little hesitation about what you will do.
Because trapping displays “no empathy,” there’s evidence all over the Internet of incredible callousness and brutality toward trapped animals by trappers. In trapping’s horrific attitude toward animal suffering, trapping is akin to cock-fighting and dog-fighting.”
So thanks to Rep. Scott Suder (R-ALEC, WBHA), and his puppet masters in the Wisconsin Bear Hunters Association, Wisconsin’s psychopaths have the best of both worlds. They can trap coyotes and wolves, and allow their packs of vicious dogs to fight them for their “recreation.” Dog fighting and trapping, both perfectly legal in Wisconsin. What century are we in? We are indeed a true sadist’s paradise. We should be so proud.
