Ever since Dane County Circuit Court Judge Peter Anderson handed down the injunction that stopped hounders dead in their tracks from going after wolves, the whining from anti-wolf zealots and hounders has only intensified. Hounders continue to say that anyone who is against their “sport” is just “misinformed.” Hounders and their supporters are even accusing the plaintiffs in the case of lying under oath. Here is a taste of what one hounding supporter and hunting shill wrote on the pro-killing website Wisconsin Outdoor Fun:
“Jeremy Rine of the U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance said anti-hunting groups filed an amended complaint with some outrageously ridiculous allegations about wolf hunters and hunting, including that hunters were trying to adopt dogs from shelters to use as “bait” to hunt wolves.
The groups also claimed that hunting wolves with dogs will cause more livestock depredation, driving wolves closer to farms. Hmm. Isn’t the whole point of the hunting and trapping season to reduce the number of wolves, thereby reducing depredation?
Additionally, one of the plaintiffs, described as a “wolf tracker,” said she could find herself scared and surrounded by packs of unleashed hounds while she was in the woods looking for wolves.
Are you kidding me? I would think she should be far more concerned being close to a pack of wolves than a pack of trained, trailing hounds.”
Trained trailing hounds? Yes those “trailing hounds” are so harmless. If you need a reminder of what these “trained” hounds do when they comes across a wounded animal (notice the hounders just standing there enjoying the brutality) look at this video used under the Fair Use Doctrine:
What kind of person can defend this garbage? Wisconsin Outdoor “Fun” indeed.
The hounders have taken control of the DNR and Legislature in Wisconsin and the time is NOW to expose them. While they constantly spread lies and propaganda about their “sport” we all know what they are really about. They cry and whine that a “liberal Dane County Judge” shouldn’t have the “right” to decide that dogs cannot be used against wolves. These “barstool lawyers” buy into the garbage that they are exempt from animal cruelty laws. This is the second case where sadists have tried to use that argument and it will be the second case where they fail. While the Legislature in this state is full of anti-wildlife zealots like Rep. Scott Suder (R-ALEC), the judiciary is generally much wiser and is not afraid to call them out on this garbage.
With this lawsuit and injunction the hounders and their backers in the DNR and Legislature are being put on notice that this is what happens when you overreach. This victory may be small and not even permanent but realize that this is only the beginning. The massive overreach by Suder, Ribeye, Meyer, and their allies has shone a spotlight on what these sadists do to wildlife in our state. As the sadistic bear hounders take to the woods this month in their annual bear torture and slaughter fest, they need to be reminded that many more people are now paying attention to what they are doing. As the above video shows their arrogance knows no bounds. They will videotape animal fighting and post it all over the internet without a second thought. It is not just “animal rights extremists” who are noticing what theses sadists are really about. Hounders are despised within their own hunting community. This lawsuit is just a taste of what happens when you bite the hand that feeds you and overreach. Of course these sadists have been protected by the DNR and their enablers for so long they think that there will be no repercussions for their acts. It is time that we demand that the laws be followed and enforced. It is also time to ban hounding nationwide. This is just the first step.
