WILDLIFE ETHIC ELECTION FLYERS 

Attached are flyers with the Dane County location of this annual powerful election, the only citizen advisory to the DNR, Natural Resources Board and legislature about our public decisions about public lands and wildlife – air, mining, water, use of lead shot and chemicals. People do not know about this “most important election in the state” – so please put in your county location on this flyer and print them off in black and white or color and take them with you wherever you go for the next month – community meetings, events, and tack them up in groups of 10-15 to leave with posters at book stores, health food stores and co-ops, pet stores, wildlife rehab and humane societies, libraries, and coffee shops. Hand them to people as you meet them. Empower each other to help nature and our wolves, bears, coyotes, bobcats and all wildlife.

The first and most important part of the night is the ELECTION of two delegates to represent you. It is the most important part. Go into the room after you register and receive your two ballots ( take photo I.D. and proof that you live in your county to elect) and ELECT!!! You will have all night to fill out the questionnaire!

Above are two of the 99 questions whose citizen answers will be paraded before the legislature as the citizen ADVISORY and WILL. For 80 years 90% of the attendees have been the most avid hunters and trappers, life-time NRA members. Every year they have voted themselves more power and take of our publicly purchased 7 and a half million acres of public land and our wildlife now tortured in traps and killed on all of our public lands – including Ice Age Trail, “Stewardship’ lands, and county and state parks.

State parks were the last 1% of our public lands that were safe for citizens or wildlife. Coyotes have dogs run on them 24/7 year-round to kill them – so all wildlife is being hounded. The rise of the crossbow, once reserved for over 55 year-old or disabled, can now be used by age 10 and up. They are silent so silent killers at night, used for poaching with shining. Trapping on all public land 6 months of spring right through the birthing season mutilates and kills hundreds of animals per trapper per DAY, – and is destroying the rest of our wildlife for private profit off of public lands.

The only way we will have a voice is to organize POLITICALLY. It is time the general public stepped up this one night each year to elect humane representation and bring balance to this corrupted and privatized election and vote. Please come around 6:30 p.m. Monday, April 8, and bring friends with you. Stay all night to learn how this process works. It is just one night a year to participate in decisions about your state and the most valuable reality we have – nature and our wild brethren who have no voice without you. Children can vote on the issues if you can prove that they live in Wisconsin. Only 18 and over can elect. Do not dally in the foyer – go immediately into the room to elect after you receive your ballots after registering. Please take responsibility to make sure everyone goes into the room to elect at the beginning of the night. ( We will stand at the door to guide people into the room right away.)

Wildlife Ethic is looking for two candidates to run in each and every county. Being a delegate involves a mere 4 meetings a year – but you then have the power to design legislation and help guide your state.

Here are the links to learn more from the DNR web site – about the election, questionnaire and locations. Please replace the Dane county location with your own county location before you print off the flyers for your county!

Please use the tools Wildlife Ethic will be providing to empower humane citizens to vote and elect every year! All the power of this election is in attending this one night each year to elect representation and vote. Please act to spread the word.

Thanks. Contact me if you have questions or if I can help!

    There seems to be emerging a wildlife crisis between the hunter-sportsmen, and mostly right wing bat sh– crazies digging in to protect their heritage and right of blood sports and even trying to do so my expanding and enlarging that right with an especially anti-predator bent, which has been a tradition in the this country from the beginning and from the inception of so-called wildlife agencies. We, wildlife habitat-wildlife-especially predators-and balanced ecology(s) must also dig in and fight, fight, fight at every level and venue. We actually have the numbers and tides on our side. This is last ditch stand of the blood sports enthusiasts and those nuts who think that predators are killing their take on wildlife bounty.

    Anti-Wildlife, Anti-Predator, Anti-Science, Logic, and Facts and Bat Sh– Crazy:

    There seems to be emerging a wildlife crisis between the hunter-sportsmen-rancher-farmer-wildlife agencies, and vastly, mostly right wing bat sh– crazies digging in to protect their heritage and right of blood sports and right of state controls of federal public lands and the critters and ecology therein and even trying to do so my expanding and enlarging that right with an especially anti-predator bent, which has been a tradition in the this country from the beginning and from the inception of so-called wildlife agencies. We, wildlife habitat-wildlife-especially predators-and balanced ecology(s) advocates must also dig in and fight, fight, fight at every level and venue. We actually have the numbers and tides on our side. This is last ditch stand of the blood sports enthusiasts and those nuts who think that predators are killing their take on wildlife bounty. Hunters represent only about 5% with trappers even less. Wildlife viewing brings in far more revenue. These barbarians are on the decline and in their death throes but making a lot of whiny noise. These minorities too much have the ear of right thinking legislatures afraid of them or like them and of course just slimy politicians playing to their ear. They have nothing on their side but hysterical, visceral, belief system folklore on their side when it come to wolves, lions, ecology, predators in general and predator roles in a balanced, healthy ecology. Talking to them is useless. We must talk beyond.

      And it is happening right under the nose of a supposedly “progressive” president. When Obama was elected in 08 I never dreamed that he would turn a blind eye toward wildlife and let the nutjob states do whatever they wanted. But he did and even after seeing how extreme they are toward wolves and other wildlife it remains the status quo.

    Obama doesn’t know anything about wildlife and Salazar fed him a bunch lies and crap. Like- all these rednecks will vote for you? Gong!

    I do not favor training dogs to kill for any reason other than survival. Dogs and wolves are related species they do not fight to the death unless forced to do so usually by humans. We are the problem. They guy who trains a dog to kill is a sociopath and he probably beats his wife and children if they do not do as they are trained to do.

    Let’s take the “hunters” and let them go in their favorite hunting area, but this time, “without their “big boy rifles”. Tell them we are killing of some human species that we don’t see a need for anymore. Give them 1 minute to run, and see how they feel “being” the hunted!
