Reaction to Mixed Bag Hounder Lawsuit Ruling Coming This Weekend

04 Jan

As much as I would love to delve into the mixed bag ruling that Judge Anderson handed down today, I cannot because I am going out of state in the morning. However, even though this was only a partial “victory” today we must realize that Judge Anderson essentially made the only decision that he could based on the archaic laws in place that allow for legalized animal fighting and cruelty toward wild animals. We cannot blame the judge for ruling the way he did. If this lawsuit did anything it pointed out to the DNR and their hounder puppet masters that we are watching. When more people find out that Wisconsin has the dubious distinction of being the only state that allows hounders to use dogs against wolves the backlash will be massive. The pendulum will swing back our way and once it does the hounders and their allies will rue the day that they decided to legislate legalized animal fighting. This is not just for wolves but for all of the animals that dogs are used as weapons against. The hounders and the kill everything groups just cannot understand that their actions are turning more and more against their “sport” and only hastens the demise of “recreation.”

More on this over the weekend.

    This on “heels” of another report of a hound being killed by wolves. Does this ridiculous compensation law , compensate when they are chasing down coyotes (who these people feel have no right to live either) ????

      It sure does. All hounders have to say is that they were going after coyotes and if a wolf kills their dog they get a nice fat $2500 check. I am just astounded that more people are not outraged that hounding is even allowed to take exist. It is government sanctioned animal fighting and the public is just apathetic toward it. We need to change that.

    Public outrage is the best way to stop this and the many claims for compensation. Hunters are going to lose their dogs and their willingness to lose them shows that killing a wolf is much more important to them than the lives of their dogs. I wonder if the head of the Hounder’s group or Bear hunters group will be using their dogs or will theirs be kept home safe and sound. It will also take the loss of many dogs before hunters will realize that using their dogs to hunt wolves is not a very smart thing to do. I wonder how many dogs will be caught in traps while wolf hunting. Anybody who “hunts” wolves is, in my opinion, a very low form of life. Those who “hunt” with their dogs, even lower.

    I can’t imagine the Habushes leaving this alone.
