“Rabbit Slayer” Patrick Durkin Just Doesn’t Get It

19 Aug

Please Patrick Durkin, save us from this vicious animal!!!


As usual the big bad rabbit slayer, Patrick Durkin, has to chime in about how bad wildlife advocates are for getting in the way of him killing a wolf. Apparently he thinks that the lawsuit was filed to make lawyers rich, rather than to protect wolves and dogs from fighting. Here is the usual drivel:

“No one’s surprised the state’s humane associations and various wolf advocates found the time and money to sue the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources in hopes of stopping folks like me from hunting wolves this fall and winter.

Still, why not devote their talents to money-generating programs that sustain long-term wolf research and management, so critters other than lawyers benefit?”

Critters? I hate that word. I usually only hear rabid killers of animals use that term. Then we have Durkin having the nerve to compare wolf and dog fighting to a goose “wing-beating a Labrador.” What? Check this out:

“Fascinating stuff, this lawsuit. The plaintiffs -– claiming to advocate for wolves and dogs alike -– contend the hunt must be stopped because the DNR didn’t impose enough restrictions to prevent “deadly animal fighting,” which violates Wisconsin’s “animal cruelty law.”

They cite the fact wolves can’t climb trees like a bear or raccoon to escape pursuers. Fair point, but what about a bear standing its ground, a raccoon drowning a hound, or a giant Canada goose wing-beating a Labrador? Why pretend wolf altercations are somehow unique and uglier?”

WTF???? Really? They must be “unique and uglier” because bear hounders have been getting paid hundreds of thousands of dollars since 1985 for dogs allegedly killed by wolves. Is this guy for real? The Wisconsin State Journal should be ashamed of themselves for even allowing this drivel to be printed. Even the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s hunter shill, Paul Smith, is far more level headed than this guy, and a much better writer.

Durkin ends the article by pointing out that most bear hounder dogs are killed before the hunting seasons while wolves are defending their pups. Really? An animal defending their young from packs of vicious dogs allowed to run loose through the woods. The nerve! This guy just does not get it? The WSJ really needs to rethink allowing this guy to write for their paper. Maybe he should just stick to protecting us from those big bad bunnies.

    He’ll be the first to vote for more Tort reform to, you know, until he loses his insurance and somebody hurts him.

    This guy is nothing but a scrawny ass. I read that this morning. Trouble is, WSJ prints this crap. I gave Wolfwatcher a nice contribution to the cause. I did for Earthjustice also since they will be sueing Wyoming. It’s crazy. This country is going crazy.

    This guys an absolute a$$! If it were left to him and his fellow cowardice hunters, they’d hunt wolves right into extinction it seems to me the less there is of a particular animal the MORE these A$$es want to kill it! The wolf hunt must be ended if we are to have wolves in America at all! Excellent article

    Great comment in today’s WSJ letters to the editor. Dead wolves for votes. Could not have said it better.

    Durkin is a fool. His arguments are lame. He only got one comment on his article- so that tells you he doesn’t have much of a readership. Nice camo outfits in the picture. Is that Durkin in the picture? Wow- bad ass rabbitt slayer……These wildlife haters really get upset when their culture of death gets interrupted.

    I predict that the Wisconsin sport wolf harvest will end as soon as their wildlife biologists notice the increase in wolf pups that happens going from a wolf population growth of 10% a year to replacing multiple times that 10% taken by hunters in Wisconsin. Where are they going to get the baby deer to feed an artificial increase of several times in the number of pups growing up to replace the adults.?
