Strong Opposition Toward Wolf Slaughter Continues

15 Aug

Following the lawsuit filed against the proposed Wisconsin wolf slaughter last week representatives of the Chippewa tribes in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan have also asked the Wisconsin Department of Natural resources to halt their plans for a wolf hunt this fall.

Chippewa tribes oppose state wolf hunt

We have stood with the tribes since the beginning of this fiasco. Rep. Scott Suder (R-ALEC, WBHA) and his anti-wolf allies ignored the concerns of the tribes and completely shut them out of any discussion about their wolf kill bill that they rammed through the legislature. This was just another example of the disrespect that has been directed toward our native brothers and sisters in this state by the Walker Administration and their allies like Suder. I have personally been a longtime supporter of native rights and I stand with them in their fight to protect their brother, the wolf.

Also this week a couple of outstanding letters to the editor written by Shirley Clements of Fon du Lac speaking out against George Meyer’s deceptively named hunting group the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation, and the insanity surrounding the impending wolf slaughter.

Shirley Clements: Wisconsin Wildlife Federation’s stand on wolves political, not scientific

GUEST COMMENTARY: Act 169 perpetuates Wisconsin wolf myths

Thank you Shirley for calling these people out for who they really are. Here is a sample:

“WWF is not protection for our wolves. Its focus is protection for hunting activities and is truly “dedicated to the future of hunting, fishing, trapping and the shooting sports.”

Therefore WWF supports political, unscientific, and unprofessional policies based not on fact but amateur science, misperception and exaggerations. WWF, name yourself Wisconsin Hunters Federation and rewrite your mission.”

Please send your own letters to the editor of your local newspapers. People are slowly becoming more and more aware of what this state wants to allow to happen to our wolves. We must keep out the pressure.

    If you’re not aware, there was a recent post on the care2 site about the lawsuit:

    I posted a link to your blog in the comments section, but it appears to have gotten lost in the shuffle.

    Isn’t there an avenue for another lawsuit by the tribes? They are entitled to this 50% but they don’t want to kill any wolves. Seems like there should be something to work with there.

      This whole damn thing needs to be scrapped and an ethics investigation needs to be conducted against Suder, the bear hounders, and the DNR. JUst the simple fact that the anti-wolf factions wrote the bill and knew about the “public” hearing in the Assembly long before the tribes or the “public” knew about it should be enough for legal action in my opinion. The state is required under treaty to consult with the tribes about any wildlife issue in the ceded territory. What Suder did was a blatant violation of that treaty and another slap in the face toward the Native Americans. Why does this whole thing sound eerily similar to the 1800s? First they want to kill off most of the native predators and then they ignore treaty rights. The political environment in this state and country is absolutely toxic and it is the Scott Suders of the world who are responsible for it.

    I commented in the WSJ the other night that we can’t let the Wi. Conservation Congress off the hook. This bunch of phonies was on this as soon as the wolf was delisted. Aldo Leopold as their mentor and leader. What a joke . They are always anxious to add a new species to their hunt list. Why are they never satisfied. Expose them as well. This is also a racist hunt.
