Patricia Randolph’s Madravenspeak: Wildlife slaughter an attack on our biodiversity

Today’s my birthday and I’m depressed as hell. The front page of the WSJ this morning really brought the hunt forward into the land of the public. I talked to a good friend of mine who has a deer hunting family up in Wausau[sp?] and they are worried about public opinion turning against deer hunting. I told her it already has. What a dreary day.

Now that the “voice” of the hunting community in Wisconsin is the bear hounders and their extremist ilk like George Meyer they only have themselves to blame. One of the biggest complaints that we hear are from deer hunters whining that wolves are “eatin’ all the deer.” That is laughable because deer are at an all time high in this state. It’s funny how up north cars have no problem striking deer, but the big bad “sportsmen” have trouble finding them.

For starters send the Bear Hunters BIT^& Scott Suder, Bob Welch, George Meyer, Cathy Stepp, Kurt Thiede, John Olson, and the rest of enemies of Wisconsin’s biodiversity on a one way trip to Mongolia……these thrill killers would fit right in because the locals there let their mutts kill wolves for sport and enjoyment……

Being a good citizen requires contributing to general well being of our society and world, not just taking for ourselves and ‘people like us’. If we love ethics and fairness as much as the home team and winning, we need to support cooperation and accomodation of those different from us including wildlife, not just consuming products and going after whatever ‘free’ stuff we can destroy and take away from others in nature. Thanks Patricia for your thoughtful and patriotic contributions to the discussion. Others may disagree, but the fact remains we all help create – or destroy – the world we live in and the rules we live by, and we bend the rules to self-interest above all else, at our peril.

Looks like the Tribes are going to sit on this thing and wait. I’m reading the Ojibwe news and there are no big plams.

I also read the WSJ front page & was very depressed with the reality of Wolf hunting season starting Monday. I had so hoped this murderous rampage & senseless slaughter of innocent animals would somehow be halted. It upset me to see 25 wolves are slated for slaughter in the small Zone 5 area. Of course Zone 5 is a portion of the area where 75 elk are to be released with a elk hunt starting when the population of elk reaches 150. They claim 37 % elk calf mortality by wolves so of course I am sure the Jackson Co. Wildlife Fund will see to it the 25 wolves are eliminated by any & all possible means.

Basically according to the DNR the overriding purpose of reintroducing elk to the state is to provide “hunter opportunity.” Our wild lands have become nothing more than giant game farms to satisfy the bloodlust of a minority of people. I can tell you exactly what is going to happen with the so called “quota” that the DNR has. They will kill far more than the supposed “quota” and not report it. then the DNR will do exactly like Montana did and claim that the wolf numbers are “increasing” to justify a higher quota and allow unlimited killing. Just wait until the next legislative session starts. Suder and his anti-wildlife allies will introduce all sorts of anti-wolf legislation because he saw how easily the spineless Democrats voted for the wolf kill bill this year. The talking heads at the DNR do not care in the slightest about wolves and I have no doubts that their ultimate goal is a second eradication just as is happening in the West. The are just putting up a front that they “care” about a “robust” population to keep the feds off of their back.
