In today’s online edition of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel political writer James Rowen pointed out that the Wisconsin Legislature’s vote for allowing dogs in the wolf kill bill is an endorsement of animal cruelty.
I want to hear how this can be justified as anything other than legalized and state sponsored animal fighting. The same goes for the sadists who send their dogs after coyotes, bears, bobcats, turkeys, and any other animal. Good job Wisconsin you are finally showing your true colors to the rest of the country. The rest of the country no longer views Wisconsin as this quiet rural state that produces milk and cheese, or where idiots wear ridiculous looking hunks of plastic cheese on their heads in support of a football team. We now have the dubious distinction of being a right wing, wildlife hating utopia for sadists and thrill killers. I am sure this will do wonders for the tourism in this state.
Those who voted for and continue to support more and more extreme methods for killing our wildlife should be ashamed of themselves. I know that they are too arrogant to be, but they should. We have very few true Democrats left in this state. The majority of them voted for the wolf kill bill with little to no debate and rubber stamped the year round killing in state parks bill. It is time again to bombard your legislators with phone calls and emails to demand that at minimum the use of dogs be removed from this sadistic law. Here is a link to find your legislators:
What the geniuses in the legislature apparently are too dense to realize is that provisions such as the legalized dog fighting may be all it takes to get the wolves relisted under the ESA. When anti-wolf rancher and Idaho legislator, Jeff Siddoway, proposed legislation early last year that allowed for live dogs to be used as bait to kill wolves even the anti-wolf federal representatives stepped in and warned that such a proposal would likely make wolves return to the ESA list. The proposal failed, but Wisconsin kept pushing and rubber stamping any method to kill wolves, even by using dogs. When will this endless pandering to the most extreme elements in our state end? More and more hunters are coming out against the hounders and their legislative enablers yet it continues to fall on deaf ears. Here is what is coming to Wisconsin this fall. This video is very disturbing but it must be seen:
Remember, Wisconsin apparently thinks this is perfectly acceptable and is considered “recreation” and “tradition.” I would assume that the above video comes from some sadists in Europe, but it could easily be northern Wisconsin. Please bombard your legislators with your opposition to this disgusting law and remind them who they are supposed to be working for, and tell your friends to do the same. Tell them that you want to see hounding put up for a statewide referendum and see how the citizens of this state really feel about it.
