In Patricia’s column this week there is a link to an absolutely horrifying video where some sadists are tormenting a wounded coyote in Nebraska with dogs. They even kick the coyote and cheer as their dogs rip at and pull the wounded coyote. This is absolutely disgusting and these people fit the exact definition of a psychopath that our post featured the other day. This is what is happening now to coyotes in Wisconsin and will soon be occurring to wolves. Watch this video and try to say that this is not legalized dog fighting.
I contacted the authorities in Nebraska and I am waiting to hear if they consider this to be legal and “ethical” behavior. The comments that follow the video are just as disturbing. This is what the thugs who made this video said in their description:
“This is a video of our crew hunting coyotes in Nebraska on a beautiful Saturday. This a wounded coyote that was shot, so we let the dogs fight it a bit for “to get back on track” since the begining of the year, thus the dogs would better track the coyote in the future in the season. This is a beautiful coyotes. We usually dont kill the good, hardy coyotes. We kill the coyotes with the disease mange (a disease that the coyotes looses all of their fur and freeze to death) This was just to get the dogs on track. Usually, if the dogs run a healthy coyote down, we’ll let it go with just a few scratches. If you have any concern, questions, or comments, please comment below. God bless.”
Then there is this gem about how much he “respects” coyotes:
“i know where are your coming from though and i repsect your bias a 100% we do this so the dogs can ‘get back on track’ as i said in the description. the guy kicked the coyote so it would run so the dogs could get more time. this is by far the grusome part of what we do. we only so it once a year. We respect the coyotes and foxes and other beautful animals to the fullest. i will make diffrent video’s this winter to show what we usually do and how much we resepct them.”
What a humanitarian. Why does our society tolerate what to any sane person would be the behavior of complete and total psychopath? But remember he is going to make a video this winter to show how he “respects” these animals. Please contact the Nebraska Game and Parks Division and ask then how this behavior can be legal. Apparently Wisconsin is not alone in using dogs as weapons. Here is the link for their “contact us” page.
