RARE WHITE DEER AND PIEBALD DEER HUNT?
Please network this column to give all Wisconsin Citizens the right to vote and participate in running and electing delegates to represent their interests in nature and wildlife issue – whether it be mining, air quality, water consumption, climate change, the fate of our wildlife and ecosystems – all citizens have the responsibility to attend this one night – and run candidates and vote on what are now (and have been for 88 years) just hunter/trapper/hounder proposals for more exploitation of wildlife. Our wildlife cannot rebound from the market trapping on all public lands – and now the trappers want to trap not just all day 6-7 months for $5 licenses, but add in all night.
You can find all 72 locations for this 88th Annual DNR/WCC all citizen election and vote on the DNR web site with the entire questionnaire here:
Learn more at the Wildlife Ethic web site and at our new facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/wiwildlifeethic?fref=ts
We have petitions up against four of the proposals for citizens to sign and network:
A petition against the proposal to expand running packs of dogs to kill 4,750 bears to the central region of Wisconsin:
A petition against expanding the 6-7 months of trapping on our public lands to all night trapping (2,041 new trappers recruited in 2014):
A petition against a new sand hill crane hunt:
As a guide for this election, please view the enclosed “cheat sheet” giving the most humane answers we could figure out (one question pending more information to understand it – question 6 on the Conservation Congress hunting lobby proposals…) : Wildlife Ethic Most Humane Answers 2015 DNR QUESTIONNAIRE. Please read through each question and decide for yourself.
Thanks so much for attending! We hope next year, you will be our next humane hiking, biking, canoeing, wildlife watching humane candidates…or throw your hat in the ring this year…it is just 4 meetings/year commitment for the power to learn and help.
Please let me know how it goes in your county. If you run for election, please ask for the tally of votes for you and the other person running. Remember it is the hunters who count the votes. We found many irregularities in Dane County while monitoring the vote counting process – so good to have someone in the room while votes are being counted!
For a living, related and humane world,
