Please join us for the wolf memorial January 11, 2013

A candlelight memorial is planned to honor the 117 wolves that were killed in this year’s Wisconsin wolf hunt.

The memorial will take place from 4:30 to 5:00 p.m. in front of the State Natural Resources Building, 101 South Webster Street in Madison on Friday, January 11.

The Wisconsin wolf hunt took place October 15 and ended on December 23 when the last wolf was killed. 62 of the wolves were killed in traps, with the remainder by hunters using firearms.

“The killing of our wolves has affected me deeply and I know that I am not alone in wanting to honor the 117 wolves who were killed in the Wisconsin hunt this year,” said Deanna Devaul organizer of the memorial. “It is our intention to symbolize the wolves lives and deaths at this memorial.”

Devaul has received support for this vigil from Madison-based Alliance for Animals and Wisconsin Wildlife Ethic, who will assist in organizing the event.

The memorial will include candles, the ringing of bells, and a poem for the wolves. “We hope to get the attention of those who work inside the State Natural Resources Building to let them know that we disapprove of the Wisconsin wolf hunt,” said Devaul, “but more than that we want to honor the wolves who lost their lives to this unnecessary hunt.”

Deanna Devaul is has been an active member of Alliance for Animals and is a supporter of Wisconsin Wildlife Ethic. More information can be found at the Wolf Memorial Facebook page.

More information to come.

      Have you noticed that those morons like this guy and “reality22” have no concept of spellcheck or grammar? They only make themselves look like the morons they are and allow the rest of us to see this as well.

    And he’s probably 5 ft 5 like the VEE assholes and Scott “Bear Hunters Bitch” Suder…..It must suck to be short and always feel like you need to prove something…..And cowards usually pick on animals because humans fight back…..

    I’m not mad. I feel sorry for you- you don’t even realize how pathetic you are…….Do you think the majority of people in this country support what you did to that wolf? And then pose for a picture with a little girl- who now thinks it’s OK to POACH a wolf and laugh about it?
    You should start an outfitting business……Call it “Yellow Toothed Outfitters (after DAD).
    You could offer a “SLOB hunter package” where you ignore State Regulations and offer trapping without a permit….After all- in your little peabrain and that 5 ft 5 little body you think you are smarter than everyone else…….You could charge a “poacher fee” of 340.00 and have it donated to the Bear Hunters Bit^& Scott Suder’s re-election campaign…..Think of the possibilities moron…..
    Who would name their son “jamie”

      Just so everyone knows who William is referring to, we have been getting spammed by the laughing wolf killer, Jamie Vee. You would think that someone who is facing charges for not following the law would be a little less arrogant about what they post but not this guy. That’s ok everything he posts goes to the few at the DNR who actually care. Keep those smug posts coming.

    These guys are really probably borderline personality asshole control freaks. They have to pick on the animals and feel like big men..because in reality..they are nothing. I am so sorry our wildlife has to take the brunt of it. My only solace is imagining the wolves running as free spirits without the boundaries of earth and it’s ugly inhabitants.
