Wolf Haters, Homophobes, Racists, and “Freedom of Speech”

564px-Bill_of_Rights_Pg1of1_AC

When news broke over the past couple of days about the homophobic comments from one of the bearded fake “sportsmen” of A&E Network’s Duck Dynasty the hateful, racist, homophobic, and anti-wolf internet sites went crazy with support for his disgusting comments. This is what the bearded, animal exploiting, redneck “hero,” Phil Robertson, had to say:

“It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

It gets even worse:

“Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men,” he says. Then he paraphrases Corinthians: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

Even more astounding is that in the world of “The Beard” racism didn’t exist “pre-entitlement” and “pre-welfare.”

“I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field…. They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!… pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.”

This man is a “hero” among many on the right wing in America. That says it all. Among those that jumped to the defense of “The Beard” were those at the anti-wolf Facebook page, “Wisconsin Wolf Hunting.” Among all of the exploitative pictures of trapped, shot, hounded wolves, and a picture of a truck with dead coyotes “stacked like cord wood” there are posts supporting “The Beard’ and bemoaning him being “persecuted” for his “free speech” and for ” for being a Christian.”

The person that runs the anti-wolf hate site and is always flaunting that he bans those that disagree with his sick and twisted posts with his “ban hammer,” is whining about ‘The Beard” having his “Freedom of Speech” rights violated.

Wisconsin Wolf Hunting: The only bigotry in this thread is by some people who only want freedom of speech when it suits their agenda . Oh that is spelled Bigot , not biggot.

Funny that is exactly what this person practices every day when he uses his “ban hammer” on pro-wolf people. This is what drives me nuts about hypocrites like this. They go and quote the Constitution and are too self important to understand what it really means. Freedom of Speech under the Constitution applies to GOVERNMENT limitations on it. The government is nowhere in this thing. The Beard made his homophobic comments to a privately owned magazine and A&E, a PRIVATELY owned company, suspended him from his sadistic exploitation show. Just like they cancelled that mulleted freak and convicted murderer, “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” when he made racist comments a few years back. A&E is a PRIVATELY OWNED company that is part of the whole corporate world that these right wing “bloggers” get their propaganda from and now they complain about them. Ironic, isn’t it?

Wisconsin Wolf Hunting: Our current American society: “you have to let everyone express their beliefs and respect them. unless they’re a Christian.” True Story!!!!!!!!!

Really? He can express his views anywhere and any time he wants. But every action has a reaction. I am so tired of this “persecution” complex by people like this guy. If you say something stupid you WILL get called out on it no matter what religion or whatever you are. Does this guy take “Freedom of Speech” and differing opinions from pro-wolf people into account when he uses his “ban hammer?” Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion apparently only apply if you agree with them or are a Christian on the Wisconsin Wolf Hunting site. Just ask anyone that posted pro-wolf comments on that site. The GOVERNMENT cannot limit or block your freedom of speech in public or private, but PRIVATE entities like Facebook, WordPress, and A&E networks CAN and DO have the ability to hold people responsible for hateful, bigoted,and reckless comments. I do and will continue to block hateful, bigoted, racist,and anti-wildlife comments on MY blog because I, just like A&E Networks, are NOT the government. But you don’t see me throwing up the “Freedom of Speech” banner when my comments or views are criticized or deleted.

A&E is just as guilty here. You create a show that caters to the lowest common denominator in our society and what kind of people do you think it will attract? The Beard is a “hero” to these people just as draft-dodger/poacher Ted Nugent is. Good riddance to bad trash and I hope that wolf hate pages go along with it. Maybe A&E and their other exploitation channels will rid themselves of their hate filled wildlife snuff programming as well. I am not holding my breath.

The funniest comment of this whole situation is below. (Warning: Graphic Language)

More Odds and Ends From the Bloodsport Capital of the United States

As of this morning 199 wolves have been slaughtered during the state sanctioned revenge/witch hunt that began on October 15th in Wisconsin. The vast majority of these wolves have been killed through trapping. This includes one wolf that languished in a leg hold trap for a week before being killed in Marquette County.

“Over 100 lb. Killed on the farm I hunt by portage. Got caught in trap last sat. Ripped 2 2 foot stakes out of ground. 1 week later farmer was combining corn called him up said hes in the corn with the trap. 3 hours later bang”

This wolf apparently was forced to drag around a trap for a week before being executed near Portage, WI last week.
This wolf apparently was forced to drag around a trap for a week before being executed near Portage, WI last week.

Concerned wildlife advocates made us aware of this and informed us that they also asked the Wisconsin DNR to investigate. I wouldn’t hold my breath. We have also been informed by several wildlife advocates that they filed complaints about the lack of a visible tag on many of the wolves in the various snuff pictures posted on the internet. According to the DNR’s own regulations on wolf killing this is a clear violation:

Tagging and Registration

Upon killing a wolf, the harvester must do all of the following:

1) immediately validate and attach the PELT tag to the wolf in the manner described on the tag. After skinning the wolf, the CARCASS tag shall be attached to the skinned carcass, and the PELT tag shall be left attached to the pelt.

From the Merriam-Webster Dictionary

im·me·di·ate·ly

adverb \i-ˈmē-dē-ət-lē also -ˈmē-dit-, British often -ˈmē-jit-\

: with no person or thing in between

: without any delay

Of course as expected the DNR has a different interpretation of “immediately” than the rest of the world when it comes to the wolf killers that they protect. This e-mail from a DNR warden “investigating” one of the non-tagging complaints was forwarded to us:

I am writing to inform you that the WDNR Bureau of Law Enforcement has concluded the investigation into the complaint that you filed with us on 10/20/2013 regarding Wisconsin Timber Wolves not being tagged properly. I can inform you that we have investigated and determined the following:
  • The wolf was harvested in a lawful manner during the open season
  • The wolf harvester was properly permitted and licensed.
  • The trapper successfully completed a trapper education class as required.
  • The wolf was properly registered by phone as required by law.
  • The photo of the wolf without a tag occurred shortly after harvest and the wolf was tagged after the photo was taken.
 
In light of the circumstances outlined above no enforcement action will be taken in this matter. 
 
If you have additional information that you would like to share regarding wolf harvest violation concerns please feel free to contact me directly via email or by phone at (608)279-1960. To report violations outside of normal business hours please feel free to contact our 24 “Hotline” by phone at 1-800-847-9367, via text at TIP 411 (847411).

Funny, I didn’t see anything in the DNR’s rules that state you don’t have to tag the wolf until after posing for grinning snuff pictures and uploading them to the anti-wolf Facebook pages. The rules say IMMEDIATELY. Is anyone surprised that they won’t enforce violations concerning wolves? They refuse to take action on the numerous violations committed by bear/coyote hounders, so why should we expect anything but the same for wolves? Upon requesting clarification from this warden we were informed that these were just “technical violations” and no enforcement action would be taken. Next time you get pulled over for not having your car registered on time or having an expired drivers license see how far this argument will get you.

The above should not be a surprise to anyone considering the attitudes of some employees of the DNR. Last week a comment from a DNR employee showed up on the anti-wolf hate site on Facebook from a person that lists himself as a DNR employee. This was forwarded to to us and is in response to a story about tribal members wounding and not recovering an elk here in Wisconsin:

I hope that the governor denies everything period! Are they not their own nation? Why does the state/Feds give them anything? Why do people go to their casinos? I sure the hell don’t nor would I ever! How are they any different than any other person in this state. Sorry but they are not special! Enough is enough I don’t owe them a damn thing nor does anyone else in this great state!

I am not naming the person because complaints have been filed with the DNR regarding this comment. Past practice would make us assume that they will ignore these this as they have other inflammatory ones made by their associates. We will see. Racist comments like these should not come as a surprise to anyone that looks at the anti-wolf hate site on Facebook. These comments followed the posting of a snuff pic containing two black wolves killed in Wisconsin:

Mary Poppe WOW!!! Not only doubling up . But DOUBLING UP ON BLACKS!!!!! Congrats boys!
Sam Donner Wack em n stack em running the blacks out !
Henry Chmiel DARKIES———SWEET
Northern Wisconsin residents at their most tolerant. Surprise. No racial overtones here, wink, wink.
Wisconsin DNR and Milwaukee Bucks
In other wildlife news it seems that the Wisconsin DNR has built a cozy relationship with the National Basketball Association’s Milwaukee Bucks. From the DNR:
As fall hunting seasons get underway, many hunters have bucks on their mind and so does the Department of Natural Resources. In addition to white-tailed bucks, DNR is also focusing on the Milwaukee Bucks as the first DNR Nights game is set for Nov. 2, 2013.

Bucks Winter Cap
Buy a discount Bucks ticket through our DNR Nights promotion and get this hat free.

Anyone holding any Wisconsin hunting or fishing license is eligible for discounted tickets on select home games at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee. In addition, each ticket purchased through the DNR Nights program will include a free regulation blaze orange Bucks winter hat.

“Hunting and fishing in Wisconsin is a time-honored tradition,” said DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp. “We are thrilled to give those license holders an added benefit they can use to spend time with their families.”

The following dates are designated DNR Nights at the BMO Harris Bradley Center:

  • Saturday, Nov. 2 – 7:30 p.m. vs. Toronto (opening night)
  • Wednesday, Nov. 6 – 7 p.m. vs. Cleveland
  • Saturday, Nov. 9 – 7:30 p.m. vs. Dallas
  • Saturday, Nov. 16 – 7:30 p.m. vs. Oklahoma City
  • Wednesday, Nov. 20 – 7 p.m. vs. Portland
  • Saturday, Nov. 23 – 7:30 p.m. vs. Charlotte
Considering that the killing cartel, “U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance,” went crazy when the Minnesota Timberwolves hosted the Minnesota based wolf advocacy group, Howling For Wolves, at one of their games their silence about the Wisconsin DNR’s cozy relationship with the Bucks is quite hypocritical. Again, does that surprise anyone?
“By giving this animal rights group a high profile platform, the Timberwolves are in fact endorsing the group to all those in attendance,” says Nick Pinizzotto, USSAF president and CEO. “It’s disappointing for such a high profile organization to allow this type of propaganda that is contrary to scientific fact”
Pot meet kettle. Funny how it is “propaganda” and should not be allowed if it doesn’t conform to their kill everything views. As with the stories above this should not surprise anyone.
Melissa Smith on WORT
Friends of the Wisconsin Wolf President, Melissa Smith, appeared on Madison’s WORT 89.9 this morning and knocked it out of the park. Great job Melissa! Please listen to the archive of this show here and click on the download of the 8 O’Clock Buzz – Thursday
DNR Quietly Advocating Poaching?
Here is an interesting tidbit from the DNR’s Trapping Regulations that I found today:

Please Contact the DNR About Incidental Take!

The sale of fur from these carcasses is used to support the trapper education program and educate new trappers. If incidental catch of a protected species occurs, please contact your local Conservation Warden or call 1-800-TIP-WDNR (1-800-847-9367) as soon as possible for instructions on how to release an animal, or if dead, how to transport it to the department. A protected species is any species for which the season is closed, there is no open season, or a person has no authority to possess.

Wow! This sure sounds like a fluffy way for the DNR to advocate poaching and illegal trap kills in order to fund their trapper sadism education program. We are going to look much closer into this program and find out how much money the DNR is making off of illegal kills.

More to come this weekend from the Bloodsport Capital of the United States.

“By giving this animal rights group a high profile platform, the Timberwolves are in fact endorsing the group to all those in attendance,” says Nick Pinizzotto, USSAF president and CEO. “It’s disappointing for such a high profile organization to allow this type of propaganda that is contrary to scientific fact.” – See more at: http://www.ussportsmen.org/antis/anti-wolf-hunting-group-recognized-at-nba-opener/#sthash.GqqH5eYM.dpuf

How Would You Respond to This?

Wolf Tracks

Upon waking up this morning I was confronted with this comment requesting approval for this site:

Jamie Vee commented on Well that was Fast…..More Threats and Hate from Anti-Wolf Facebook Site

Too late on the work place calls and emails. Some of your members must have missed your request to refrain from those efforts. It seems that this world hasn’t enough middle ground. I’m trying to work with the WWH page to get people to understand that there can be middle ground. Unlike some members, I don’t hate wolves. I don’t want to kill them all. I don’t hate anti-hunters either. I learned a few things last year and am hoping to pass some of that on to other hunters and trappers, and maybe even anti hunters.

PS, I’ve already been investigated by the DNR this year. That’s fine. I don’t mind being checked out. But, if your members are going to have me investigated, have them pursue without putting together false stories or photos.

I’m not quite sure how I should respond to this, but actions do speak louder than words. By Mr. Vee continuing to post grinning pictures of himself and family members with dead wolves and coyotes on that disgusting hate page, I am dubious about his comments. Mr. Vee and other wolf killers seem to not understand that the wolf has a cultural significance among Native American tribes, and a special place in the hearts of millions of people worldwide. Each wolf killed and each grinning picture posted to that disgusting site is just another slap in the face to Native Americans and those that worked decades to bring this animal back from the eradication caused by the previous generations of wolf haters. They claim that this is “management,” when in reality it is a revenge/witch hunt as their own comments allude to. Did I mention bullying as well?

  • Branden Boe Smoke a pack a day:)
  • Wisconsin Wolf Hunting Hippie tears are yummy
    Clint Worden I get a kick out of how these anti-hunters think we’re uneducated red-necks. All they have to go on is they’re emotions, no facts, no biology, just emotion. If they really loved wolves they should have pushed NOT to bring them back to areas where they would clash with humans. Wolves just don’t belong in northern WI. anymore.
    • Wisconsin Wolf Hunting That is their biggest weakness besides being emotional filled cry babies. They really think we’re all uneducated rednecks. It’s actually fun to watch because they really have no clue how big of fools they make themselves look by coming here.

Wisconsin Wolf Hunting

Dear anti-wolf hunt nutjobs coming to our page today. Check this out. BANG BANG BANG! They are still all dead.
Photo: Dear anti-wolf hunt nutjobs coming to our page today.  Check this out. BANG BANG BANG! They are still all dead.

 

Yup! More of that “respect” and “tolerance.” Remember when Kathy Stepp said with a straight face that “there are no wolf haters in Wisconsin?”

Mr. Vee claims that “members” of this group have contacted his wife’s place of employment against my warnings against such behavior. This is true and I certainly disapprove of this. I will reiterate that unless you are a direct customer of this business there is no reason to contact them. The wolf killing behavior did not happen on company time or have anything to do with that business so STOP contacting them. I do know of two women that were customers of this business and after 17 years they stopped patronizing this vet clinic because of the gleeful wolf killing behavior or Mrs. Vee. Frankly if my vet office employed people that take obvious glee in killing animals, especially wolves, I would not patronize them either. However, that is the only justifiable reason for contacting this business and ONLY if you are a customer or soon to be former customer.

If Mr. Vee truly wants to find some “middle ground” with wildlife advocates then stop posting the snuff pics on that disgusting hate page. I highly doubt that those running that page and those posting there care anything about “middle ground.” In fact here is what was posted on that site just a couple of hours ago:

Quick, call in an air strike!
Photo: Quick, call in an air strike!
Obviously more of that “respect” and “tolerance” from the chickenhawk “Call of Duty veterans.”
Mr. Vee if you really want to make a difference and find “middle ground” condemn this disgusting kind of talk. Better yet condemn the death threats made against wildlife advocates emanating from that page. How about condemning the threats of rape against female wildlife advocates that come from posters on that page? How about condemning the non-stop advocating of poaching and “kill ’em all” garbage coming from that site? How about condemning the comments frequent WWH commenter “JB Brown” messaged to Melissa Smith yesterday calling her a “timber nigger?” How about condemning the vile slime that left a dead and gutted coyote on the hood of a wildlife advocate’s vehicle earlier this year? The threats of poisoning another wildlife advocate’s dogs? The threats go on and on and that page is the root of ALL of them. You see why wildlife advocates are pissed?

Mr. Vee, condemn the vile, disgusting hate filled comments, and death threats on that page and maybe we can talk about a common middle ground.

For everyone else that reads this page and is thinking about contacting the employer of a wolf killer or their family: DON’T DO IT. If you do business with one of these places, stop being a customer and tell them why. If you are not a customer back off. If you cannot heed these simple warnings do not expect to get any sympathy or support from myself or this group.

Horrific Wolf Kill Video From Idaho Surfaces

Screen shot from Idaho wolf kill video.

Screen shot from Idaho wolf kill video.

I have seen plenty of horrific and sadistic videos from wolf killers but this one may be the most disturbing. This comes from Idaho, AKA Wisconsin West. The video shows this punk mugging for the camera after shooting a wolf, then he goes to videotape the wounded wolf thrashing around while he twirls his revolver.

I warn you that this video is very graphic but it needs to be seen. This is a perfect example of the mindset and antics of wolf haters both in the West and Midwest. For now I am only attaching the link because of how horrific the video is. Again this is highly disturbing. DO NOT comment on this cretin’s page. Please just observe. Nothing we say has any impact on these thugs. But make sure this is shown far and wide. I am sure our friends over at the wolf hate pages will be getting off on this real soon.

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=336141726531347

These are the comments that follow the video. This illustrated the mind of wolf haters and those that cheer them on. The comments are almost as disturbing as the video. This is the future of Red State America at it clearest. While the Teahadists are going nuts over the black guy in the White House this is what the children of this country are becoming. And we wonder why there are school shootings each week in America. Look at the dead eyes in this video and you will have your answer.

Easily the most awesome hunting experience for me!! So freakin sweet

Well that was Fast…..More Threats and Hate from Anti-Wolf Facebook Site

Canis_lupus_portrait

This was posted by the anti-wolf hate site a couple of hours ago. All threats have been reported to the authorities and they have assured us there will be an investigation into those making the threats and their enablers that run the site. Those investigating believe that this site is run by the same people that made death threats against anti-mine protestors a couple of months ago. I am not sure of that. We were also informed that death threats originating from across state lines fall under Federal jurisdiction. This is the latest round of hate from that disgusting page:

Wisconsin Wolf Hunting shared a link.

Check out this blog posts from the anti-wolf thugs about one of our posts this morning. I sense alot of anger and butthurt in this blog. We happen to know they’re leaving out a few facts they do not want to discuss. You know, like trying to contacting someone’s wives employer trying to get her fired. Yeah I am sure they do not want to talk about that thuggish behavior of theirs.

Anti-wolf thugs? How did WE become “anti-wolf?” Isn’t that what that hate page is all about? They go on to criticize MY grammar apparently not realizing that it is “a lot” and not alot. Considering their fast response it appears that they are the ones “butthurt.” If they are not doing anything wrong why feel the need to respond so hatefully? I nor any of our associates contacted a wolf killer wife’s employer. I do not and will not encourage this behavior. There is no place for that. It ONLY becomes an issue when it is done while on the clock for that employer. I will shame wolf haters that post hate in a public forum and that is it. I will also bring to light death threats against wildlife advocates. Will the Wisconsin Wolf Hunting page condemn the death threats against Melissa Smith and other wildlife advocates? I doubt it. Does that mean all of the actions of the wolf hating readers on that site are Wisconsin Wolf Hunting’s responsibility?
Here we have the first death threat:

Scot Hartline: It’s a shame that there isn’t a season on people like them! Obviously their numbers are too high! Proper game management, specifically of apex predators, is crucial for the survival of all other game and domestic animals. This is not rocket science.

This has been reported to the proper authorities. Oh the irony. This is what Mr. Hartline posted on his Facebook page:

Scot Hartline shared a link.

October 17 · Edited

“Bullying is a very serious problem and therebhas got to be accountability somewhere…I’m not sure that this is the exact right way to do it but they have got to start somewhere.
I know one thing for sure, my kids will not be dealing with anything like I suffered while I was in school! I WILL PERSONALLY MAKE SURE OF THAT!”

Death threats are a very serious problem too Scot Hartline. Oh the hypocrisy.

Several other comments follow, but my quota of sadism is filled for the day. I hate giving this disgusting page and their minions attention but they have crossed a line when threatening myself and other wildlife advocates. I will be leaving the investigation of those threats to the proper authorities and all will be exposed.

Apparently those that operate that sick site seem to think that Melissa Smith or the other women they mentioned run this site. They do not. This site is run by a 14 year veteran of Law Enforcement, an Army Veteran, and someone highly knowledgeable about the law. I do not take death threats lightly from either side and they have been and will be reported to the proper authorities. Those behind sites like that hate page think they are immune from the law because they have the anonymity of the internet. We will see how long that lasts.

If anyone else is threatened or targeted by that page do not hesitate to report it to law enforcement. It is one thing to make sarcastic and ignorant comments it is quite another to threaten the lives of those you disagree with.

Here is a reminder for those that troll this site and leave hateful comments. Your IP address will be posted for the entire world to see and any death threats will be reported to law enforcement. Please DO NOT engage with the cretins that run and post on that page. They get off on the attention. Observe, document, report, and most of all DO NOT make threats against these people or call their workplaces. This does not do us any good and gives the anti-wolf sadists “ammo” to use against our side. Any person that cannot accept this has no place working with this group or other wildlife advocates. Do not expect any defense from me if you partake in these activities.

Who Are the Real Environmental Terrorists?

NickBergandFiveMen

This "sportsman" took to the Wisconsin Wolf Hunting Facebook page hate site to brag that he trapped and killed this 50 pound 5 month old wolf pup.

This “sportsman” took to the Wisconsin Wolf Hunting Facebook page hate site to brag that he trapped and killed this 50 pound 5 month old wolf pup.

From Wikipedia:

On May 11, 2004, the website of the militant group Muntada al-Ansar posted a video with the opening title of “Abu Musa’b al-Zarqawi slaughters an American” (Arabic: ابو مصعب الزرقاوي يذبح امريكي‎), which shows Berg being decapitated. Al-Zarqawi had an association with the jihadist group AlQaeda, as does Muntada al-Ansar. The video is about five and a half minutes long.

Berg is seen in the video wearing an orange jumpsuit. He identified himself: “My name is Nick Berg, my father’s name is Michael, my mother’s name is Susan. I have a brother and sister, David and Sarah. I live in West Chester, Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia.”

The video shows Berg surrounded by five men wearing ski masks and shemaghs. A lengthy statement is read aloud. The masked men then converge on Berg. Two of them hold him down, while one decapitates him with a knife. A scream can be heard as men shout “AllahuAkbar“. After the head is severed, one of the men displays the head to the camera, then lays it down on the decapitated body.

ter·ror·ism

noun \ˈter-ər-ˌi-zəm\

: the use of violent acts to frighten the people in an area as a way of trying to achieve a political goal

:systematic use of violence to create a general climate of fear in a population and thereby to bring about a particular political objective

When it comes to wildlife and environmental advocacy our opponents never hesitate to throw around the word “terrorist” when describing any kind of protest or activity against their behavior or beliefs. Take for example the inflammatory words used by former Rep. Scott Suder (R-ALEC) and Sen. Tom Tiffany (R-GTAC) when describing the actions of ONE criminal protestor at the proposed Penokee mine site.

Senator Tom Tiffany has responded. He calls the protesters eco-terrorists — people who resort to extreme measures, in the name of protecting the environment.

“They said ‘we will be back, and we will be back with more people.’ I can tell you, as a legislator, I take that very seriously,” Tiffany says.

So if one loud mouth hippy is a “terrorist” then what do you call those that kill something for a political statement? The Wisconsin DNR may call them a “conservationist” but I call them what they are” ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORISTS.

As with the story about Nick Berg above, wolf haters seem to act in the very same manner to make a political statement. Just as with the Nick Berg beheading wolf haters love to take pictures of trapped and suffering animals before they kill them. Then they like to pose with the dead animal after the execution. But not to be outdone they feel the need to rush to hate sites like the Wisconsin Wolf Hunting page on Facebook to spread their pictures of bloodlust for the whole world to see. What happens after a jihadi beheads someone, like Nick Berg, as a political statement? They also run right to their hate sites to spread their carnage all over the world.

So what word describes this behavior?

Bransford

Then after the execution:

Josh Bransford, U.S. Forest Service employee, and the face of the modern "sportsman."

Josh Bransford, U.S. Forest Service employee, and the face of the modern “sportsman.”

This is what a REAL environmental terrorist looks like. Read the posts and comments on the anti-wolf hate sites. They always brag about killing animals in the most horrific ways and sprinkle in anti-government, misogynistic, and racist rhetoric to go along with their anti-wolf garbage. That is the very definition of terrorism: killing to make a political statement and spreading fear. They certainly don’t hesitate to take swipes at “libtards” or “tree huggers” and threaten “open season” on those that disagree with their twisted world view. If that isn’t making a political statement with their actions what is? How about photos like this with the caption of “Splat” posted on the Wisconsin Wolf Hunting hate page?

1395181_558974764176354_352984714_n

Yup, it’s all about “conservation” and “putting food on the table” isn’t it? What kind of monster finds this humorous? Plenty do and they reside on the anti-wolf hate pages that plague the internet much as the anti-Western jihadi terrorist pages do. Killing and death is all a joke and a grand old time for wolf haters and jihadis alike. At least the jihadis pretend that they have a religious angle for their sick terrorism. What angle do the wolf haters have?

It’s time wildlife advocates stop attempting to negotiate with these terrorists and fight back. The media is finally paying attention to the sick and brutal sadism going on in this state and it is time for the rest of our supposedly civilized society to stop coddling, tolerating, and glorifying these sick monsters. Wisconsin this is the monster you created:

Do they make camo for double chins?

So if a loudmouth hippy is a “terrorist” in the eyes of rightwing corporate hack politicians what do you call this thing above and the hate page he so proudly posted his kill at? Wake up Wisconsin and call this wolf hate what it is: environmental terrorism.

Wolf Slaughter Begins While the Media Finally Pays Attention…….And Asks Questions

Is there any doubt left that the Wisconsin DNR hates wolves?

Is there any doubt left that the Wisconsin DNR hates wolves?

The day that wildlife advocates have dreaded and bloodthirsty sadists yearned for is upon us. This is the first day of Wisconsin’s annual wolf slaughter season. There is a big difference between this year and last year though. The mainstream media is finally paying attention to the reckless plan authored by the killing cartel controlled “Wolf Advisory Committee” and the pay to play Wisconsin DNR under former real estate developer turned agency secretary Cathy Stepp. In the past week alone some outstanding journalism from the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism has shone a light in the corrupt and barbaric practices that the DNR labels as “science,” “management,” and “tradition. The Center also asks the question about why some in this state are so obsessed with using dogs as four-legged weapons against wildlife and why this is considered “ethical” by the DNR. The most important piece from the Center is a long investigative article showcasing the corrupt and pandering antics of the Wisconsin DNR and their sham committees. The article is here:

Proposed wolf reduction worries Wisconsin scientists

In the article DNR talking head Sgt. Schultz….errr…..Bill Vander Zouwen makes the ridiculous statement that the DNR has no clue what killing cartel groups are applying “political pressure.” Right……

The wolf committee is one of 16 wildlife advisory committees that were revamped this spring to exclude university researchers and reduce DNR staff — a move that internal DNR records show was controversial among some of the agency’s scientists.

The committees now have more representation by interest groups, including sportsmen.

The wolf committee is drafting a long-term plan for managing the animals due in June to the Natural Resources Board, which sets policy for the DNR.

Committee facilitator Bill Vander Zouwen, the DNR’s ecology section chief, said agency administrators are feeling pressure from outside groups not to raise the goal from 350, set in a state wolf management plan from 1999 when wolves were recovering from threatened status.

“Whoever worked with the legislators on the bill — it’s clear the legislators wanted (the wolf population) brought down,” he said. “If we start talking about higher goals, it will make people nervous because of the political pressure out there.”

Vander Zouwen said he didn’t know who was applying this pressure: “Nobody has really told me who those influential parties are.”

Seriously? Let me give you a hint. They wrote the damn bill and sit on your sham committee, Vander Zouwen. Then there is this asinine statement from the the head of the state trapper killing cartel and committee member:

Committee member Maynard Breunig, representing the Wisconsin Trappers’ Association, was also adamant about not going above 350.

“I’ll change my mind when I’m six feet under. That’s about the only time I’ll change my mind,” he said. “What is the goal of all of this? Everybody knows what the people want.”

What people? The bear hounders? The trapper sadists? Funny that these bloodthirsty sadists speak for a tiny minority of Wisconsin citizens yet they know “what the people want.”

And of course here is the political control of the DNR wolf “management” spelled out in clear terms:

The state’s 2012 wolf hunt, the first in half a century, was approved with support from several state sportsmen groups, including the Safari Club International Wisconsin Chapter, the Wisconsin Bear Hunters Association and the Wisconsin Bowhunters Association, all of which are now represented on the Wolf Advisory Committee.

Officers and board members of the seven groups that spent time lobbying for the wolf hunt have donated at least $15,500 to Republican campaigns since mid-2008, an analysis shows. Recipients include Walker and former state Rep. Scott Gunderson, now DNR executive assistant. They also gave at least $4,300 to Democratic campaigns.

The rechartering of the DNR’s 16 wildlife committees has raised concerns among some DNR panel members, according to emails and a report obtained under an open records request by the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism.

Vander Zouwen??? Are you paying attention about who is exerting the “political pressure?” You put them on your sham committee.

And not to be outdone Cathy Stepp decided to respond to the Center’s article in a propaganda press release claiming that managing wolves is “as much art as it is science?” Sit down before you read this obsecene and insulting garbage:

If wildlife management was simply about doing research and then implementing what a study suggests, our wildlife managers would have a pretty straight forward and relatively easy job. However, wildlife management in Wisconsin and across the country is as much an art as it is a science. To ignore public sentiment and turn a blind eye to what society will accept will result in the failure of any policy, no matter how sound it may be from a scientist’s point of view. That is why for over 76 years, the DNR has balanced social, biological, and economic science in its decision making.

In review of the article, there are a number of important facts that were omitted.

First, several scientists, including Dr. Timothy Van Deelen and his research associate Jennifer Stenglen, have presented to the department’s wolf committee on multiple occasions. The article suggests that because Dr. Van Deelen isn’t a member of the committee that his inputs are not considered. To the contrary, their model has been utilized for two consecutive years to help model and project how the state’s wolf population will respond to harvest.

Secondly, the article asserts a false premise that only hunters, trappers and ranchers want fewer wolves. What is not mentioned are the votes by 18 Wisconsin County Boards that have passed advisory resolutions on wolf management, with 14 voting for 350 or less wolves and 4 voting for a goal of 350 wolves. Those counties include: Ashland, Burnett, Clark, Douglas, Florence, Forest, Iron, Jackson, Langlade, Lincoln, Marinette, Oconto, Oneida, Price, Rusk, Sawyer, Taylor, and Vilas. This is a taste of the social side of wolf management. The DNR strives to balance many of the social aspects of wolf management with the need, and the department’s responsibility, to manage the state’s wolf population.

Classic Laurie Groskopf/bear hounder propaganda. So Stepp, who populates these boards? You fail to mention that the vast majority are indeed hunters, trappers, hounders, and ranchers. So no it is not a “false premise.” Guess what Stepp? Wisconsin is a state of 5.6 MILLION people. How about paying attention to that “social side of management” not just bear hounders, hunters, trappers, and ranchers. And then the propaganda continues:

At a recent DNR wolf committee meeting, social dimension work from UW researcher Adrian Treves was presented to the committee. In subsequent meetings the committee decided that more in-depth and robust social dimensions work needed to be conducted to better inform the department’s update to the state’s wolf management plan. Again, no mention was made of this fact in the article.

Next, the assertion that we will get to our goal of 350 wolves in one year ignores the science. The UW’s own population model indicates this year’s harvest could result in a 13 percent reduction in the state’s wolf population.

Since the day the wolf hunt legislation went into effect, we have been clear that we will honor the established population goal, and we will manage the population responsibly. Last year, as we predicted, our conservative harvest resulted in basically holding the wolf population steady. The minimum population count was estimated to be 815 in 2012, after the harvest it was estimated to be 809, a decline of less than 1 percent.

Also, at the beginning of the 2014 wolf hunting and trapping season, the population is well above 809 animals. The state’s wolf population basically doubles each spring when young are born. The number the department reports as a baseline is the population at its lowest point each year, just prior to pups being born. That is the origin of 809 and needs to be reported in context.

Finally, I want to take this time to thank our experts, the 12 DNR scientists and wildlife professionals that sit at the table with our conservation and Federal partners developing recommendations at our wolf committee meetings. The article focuses on only a few committee members but fails to mention the makeup of our 25 member committee which also includes representatives from the US Forest Service, US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), US Department of Agriculture, Wisconsin County Forest Association and the Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission (GLIFWC). The article suggests that science is not represented, that only stakeholders are making decisions. This is simply not true and fails to tell the entire story.

Once recommendations are developed at the committee level, those recommendations are advanced to the department’s wildlife policy team, where seasoned managers and scientists with over 150 combined years of experience, weigh the science (both social and biological) and also the management implications. Ultimately they will make the recommendation to department administration and the Natural Resources Board (NRB). That is where biology, science and public sentiment are weighed and a final decision is made. This year the wolf committee recommended a quota of 275 wolves and the NRB approved that quota unanimously.

There are some tough decisions ahead. For instance, if we want to continue to harvest wolves, we will very likely have to decide on whether 350 wolves is the correct number. We do not disagree or ignore the fact that at lower populations we need to take great care in our management decisions. If we do reach 350 animals, it may mean that public harvest is extremely limited and we are only controlling problem wolves. These are the important questions that our citizens and committee will be tackling in the coming year. In the meantime, we will continue to responsibly manage our wolf population.

Our commitment to science remains strong. We will continue to monitor the biological data collected through surveys and harvest data as we move toward our goal, approved by and written by many of those quoted in the article as well as the USFWS. No other state puts the same amount of effort into tracking, monitoring and collecting data on the wolf population and harvest as Wisconsin does. There is much to be celebrated in our recovery and responsible management of the wolves in Wisconsin.

Keep the propaganda spin rolling Stepp and fellow DNR talking heads. This is the same killing cartel propaganda that ALL of the anti-wolf groups keep spreading. The Center has made very clear that they stand behind their story 100 percent and we concur:

The Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism stands by its report on the state Department of Natural Resources’ management of the wolf population. The report fairly and accurately draws upon the perspectives of advocates and critics of the DNR, through interviews and public records. DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp’s response mischaracterizes portions of WCIJ’s report, which we invite the public to read in its entirety. We look forward to further examinations of these important issues in the future.

It is so refreshing to see a well respected investigative journalism organization like the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism call out the biased and politically motivated Wisconsin DNR for their corrupt and shady antics. The Center also published and article yesterday asking why Wisconsin is so obsessed with using dogs to kill wildlife:

Is state too open to hunting with dogs?

Joe Bodewes, a Minocqua-based veterinarian, described the damage to dogs by bear in a recent letter to the Wisconsin State Journal.

“Broken and crushed legs, sliced-open abdomens and punctured lungs,” he wrote. “Dogs lying mangled and dying on the surgery table — all in the pursuit of sport.”

Bodewes, in an interview, says his small clinic treats about a dozen dogs a year mauled by bears while hunting. Usually two to four die. Recent cases include a dog whose jaw “was snapped off below the eyes” and one whose back muscles were “ripped loose from its spine.” Both survived.

Now Wisconsin is about to become the only state to let dogs be used in wolf hunts. A judge’s injunction blocking the use of dogs in last year’s inaugural hunt has been lifted; the case is now before a state appeals court. This year’s hunt, with a kill goal of 275 wolves, begins Tuesday. Dogs can be used beginning Dec. 2.

Keep up the pressure. You know that we will continue to expose the sadistic bloodsport antics of many so called “sportsmen” in Wisconsin and their enablers in the DNR.
