HSUS Finally Taking Notice of Reckless Wisconsin Wolf Killing Plan URGENT ACTION NEEDED NOW

In January of 2012 the United States Fish and Wildlife Services, bowing to pressure from national killing cartels, removed the gray wolf from the Endangered Species List in the Western Great Lakes Region. The very day that wolves were officially delisted Rep. Scott Suder (R-ALEC) introduced a very onerous bill in the Wisconsin Legislature that basically declared war on the gray wolf in Wisconsin. The bill allowed wolves to be killed by everything short of artillery, and made Wisconsin the only state in a country full of wolf haters to allow dogs to be pitted against wolves. Following the introduction of this disgusting bill several wildlife advocates, along with myself, attempted contact with representatives of the Humane Society of the United States and Defenders of Wildlife to make them aware of what Wisconsin was attempting to do. Defenders completely blew us off and the HSUS, with the exception of one wonderful employee, showed no interest in helping us or getting involved in the battle to protect our wolves. A well placed source informed us that the HSUS did not want to “ruffle any feathers” in the Wisconsin Legislature because they wanted to get an exotic animal ban passed into law. So as we now know the wolf kill bill was passed and there was absolutely no effort by anyone in the legislature to put forward an “exotic animal ban.”

Since then the HSUS has made a few attempts to get people to oppose the insanity that Wisconsin proposed but it was far too little far too late. The only thing that kept me from completely losing faith in that group was the fact that they did file a lawsuit in federal court to reinstate Endangered Species Act protections for the gray wolf in the Great Lakes due to the reckless and openly hostile “management” plans of Wisconsin and Minnesota.

Today, I was surprised to receive an action e-mail from the HSUS that encouraged people to contact the Natural Resources Board and express their opposition to the reckless quota proposed by the killing cartels that could potentially kill at least 50 percent of the wolf population.

Wisconsin: Protect Our Wolves!

Dear,

On June 26, the Wisconsin Natural Resources Board will approve a final recommendation for a proposed quota of 275 wolves to be hunted during this year’s trophy hunt. When combined with other forms of annual wolf mortality, this could result in 50 percent of the wolf population being killed. In Wisconsin, wolves may be shot and trapped in cruel steel-jawed leghold traps, and chased down and killed using packs of dogs.

The Board members need to hear from you that this reckless management of our wolf population is not acceptable. Please send a message to the Wisconsin Natural Resources Board urging them to protect our fragile population of wolves»

Thank you for speaking up for our state’s wildlife.

At the last NRB meeting they IGNORED the 3,000 plus letters sent to them opposing the use of dogs against wolves. We need to exceed that number than the some. We need to send a clear message to the NRB and DNR that we oppose these reckless plans and we want to see our wolves protected and not persecuted. Please share this far and wide.

    Sent my letter, but I’d like to speak with one of these guys in a public forum. I have never heard a legitimate rationale to using dogs. Never. They simply deflect the discussion elsewhere. And this International Safari Club is something out of a Phillip K Dick novel when you look at their site.

      They are horrible, but the so called “leadership” in the states and federal government bow to their every whim. These are the same scum that give out “awards” for the human garbage that kills the most different types of animals including endangered species. Isn’t it amazing that they schedule the NRB meeting for a day and time when most people are at work and only the professional lobbyists have all day to spend there? I wonder if Bob Welch will be there lobbying for this on behalf of board member Greg Kazmierski’s “Hunters Rights Coalition?” The sickening muzzling of democracy in this state is horrifying yet the Fox brainwashed idiots keep right on supporting these dregs that keep pushing us lower and lower into the ethical doldrums. That is why we need a massive letter writing campaign and people testifying so that even when they ignore us the media won’t.

    I will be there speaking (again) although I have already been called inappropriate and offensive…what a joke..nothing that I say is more offensive then what they are DOING in OUR forests! I will let them know that loud and clear this next meeting. The real problem is our governor who is allowing these lobbyists to WRITE the laws they want..but like I will tell them…I am working from the bottom up..when I attend THEIR meetings..and will cont to also work from the top down with getting this corrupt group …Walker and company..out of office. Then DNR Board really has little to say in the long run..but they ALL can be ethical and stand up for what is right …IF they have any ethics ….I will not accept their sorry ass excuse…the law has been written and we must follow it…but can make minor changes..they can say…I am AGAINST this and choose to refuse to go along with what has been passed to them from the ‘top”.

    I have written to Pope Preston Cole and asked for my first amendment rights to be returned to me so I can speak at the June 26 meeting. They felt so “threatened” by me showing them a barbed wire wrapped pole used to extract wolves, pups, coyotes, bobcats, bears or any animal trying to hide from their dogs. “Disrupted” their killing agenda. Quash dissent. Silence the opposition.

    I want to make a particular point to all of you about the excuse of “wolf predation” – not that it matters because they kill any and every animal no matter what we peons who are not killers say. Wolf “predation” is .2 % ( 2/10ths of a percent ) of the cause of death of cattle before they are deliberately slaughtered for human “predation”. 28% cause of death pre-slaughter is respiratory disease due to bad care. Wolves are natural predators who are balancing ecosystems where humans are totally overpopulated and have deliberately overpopulated deer and “live”stock for personal ( subsidized by taxpayers ) profit. Wolves kill to feed their families. Wolf “predation” is “verified” by the very people who want to rationalize killing wolves. (Says the warden to the farmer, “Why George – too bad about that still born calf – we can attribute that to a wolf and you will get compensation ( wink wink ) and we will get our wolf slaughter further rationalized.)

    But this is the real point: The number of wolves to be slaughtered is “ZERO” – it is a “number” and satisfies the legislator parameter of the NRB setting a number. Zero.

    As far as Wildlife “services” ( federal) or the DNR killing “problem wolves”? What is the problem? Are humans the only species allowed to predate on planet earth? We are gluttonous in our predation of livestock and deer. Humans PRODUCE them for human predation . ( I don’t eat animals because animal agriculture is a prime excuse for killing natural predators, displacing natural predators, and 51% cause of climate chaos which is destroying all wildlife and our planet.) But I assure you a slaughterhouse death is not nicer than a wolf, coyote, or natural predator predation. There are no “problem” wolves. Only natural predators doing what they are supposed to do – keep ecosystems in balance and take the weakest and most disabled animals as prey. Unlike “hunter” serial killers, they do not kill the biggest and best and take pictures of themselves over dead wildlife, or decorate their dens with human taxidermy, or kill for fun recreational outings. There are no “problem wolves” only problem warped sicko humans.

    “Problem wolves” is a concoction of wolf killers.

    Farmers and ranchers can use guard dogs, flagging, fencing, creative scare tactics, and not leave dead cattle at the boundaries of their farms. They can stop grazing on our public lands and leave them wild. They can stop grazing near woods. They can move out of wolf territory if they do not like wild-willed animals, and wild-willed land.

    But our task is to each bring in ten new members and spread the word to organize politically for wolves, bears, wildlife and stop making excuses. We need to be in the streets doing whatever it takes to educate people and bring them to care about our wildlife before they are killed out. We will not get them back. 38 years and millions of dollars and hundreds of volunteers will not be available to this killing genocidal agency again.

    ZERO is the right number and there are no problem wolves – only problem serial killing psychotic humans.
