If readers do not remember the above mentioned person posted two snuff videos on YouTube showing the gleeful killing of a black wolf and a collared gray colored wolf. What followed was laughing about killing the wolves by the killers in the videos. The videos went viral and were reported to the DNR. In fact this is the response that was received from a DNR official in November 2012:
For your information the man who shot the radio collared wolf will be fined and the wolf was confiscated from him. He was not legally licensed to trap wolves, in part because he had not taken trapper education classes. We had tried to require training for anyone planning to trap wolves, but were unable to get special wolf trapping training that into the rules. But all trappers need to have taken trapper education classes. A major part of trapper education programs are teaching people ethics of trapping and attempting to dispatch captured animals as humanely and quickly as possible. Letting the wolf struggle in the trap while they were videoing it instead of just quickly euthanizing it certainly was not ethical.
We did provide voluntary training for wolf trapping and I would guess neither group took that class. The first pair that commented about shooting the wolf in the face were certainly not ethical. But a well-placed shot to the head can be an approved method of euthanasia approved by the American Medical Veterinary Association. But putting it on a video, and making comments as they did certainly was not ethical. I could not see well enough how well the shot was made to the head. Even with a well-placed shot into the brain, there still may be some residual muscle and nerve action after the animal was shot.
Thanks for bringing these to my attention. They were not easy to watch. It looks like at least 1 of these individual will end up getting fined.
Of course as expected the charge was dropped due to what the District Attorney called “legislative interference.” So go ahead and “blog” all you want about this case. Be sure to interview the DA that prosecuted it so he can tell you all about that “legislative interference.” I am sure the public will just love to hear about it.
And speaking of that disgusting hate page here is a smorgasbord of comments showing some of that “tolerance” and “respect” that the DNR and Patrick Durkin claim exists for wolves among Wisconsin “sportsmen.” Here are a few examples:
Erica Hana I love how these extremist liberals argue how protecting an animal that murders livestock with its face is a must. Shoot them all and make a nice duvee cover. Like · Reply · 5 minutes ago via mobile
Notice how they go crazy when we say they are “murdering” wolves, but livestock can be said to be “murdered” and it is ok.

Jayne Ellen Bay All you people sad about the poor wolves… I’m an animal lover, but when my nephew’s found their much loved labs remains (a spine and collar) in their yard, you tell me they don’t need to be controlled. Blame “people”. You lose a pet, or maybe a child. There was a child attacked by a wolf this summer. Its only a matter of time. Like · Reply · Yesterday at 8:18am via mobile

Kelly Marquardt Sad when all you have to do is drive around on roads and you will see least 1 or 2 wolves around here .. I still say the wolf and bear count is way off .. Turkeys , Wolves , Coyote , and Bear have taken over .. I hunted a spot that I could always get a limit of grouse .. Not 1 flush .. My GSP did not even get birdy .. shame what the DNR have let our good hunting come too.
So turkeys are now eating all the deer?

So a “guy in Chicago” was attacked by a wolf? Hmmmm I must have missed that news story.
Amber Rice Hey my uncle shot these! There are too many wolves! That’s why people kill them. They’re a nuisance! Like · Reply · 5 · October 18 at 5:29pm via mobile
No people kill them because they are a substitute for “libtards” and “tree huggers.”
Ashley Lynn Martin People in northern wisconsin cannot take their dog for a walk out in the country on trails because their dogs get attacked. People have gotten attacked going for walks. not everyone wants to walk the city. And they kill off all the deer population. If your not a hunter you dont understand. Or if you have not experienced this. You do not understand. People need to get over this already. Its much needed.
People being “attacked” huh? Proof?
Maureen Drinkman there are too many of them, our ancestors were right to not have them, and eliminated them!!!…kill them all!!! 16 minutes ago
Sound familiar? They say the same thing about Native Americans.
Brian Ryskoski My coonhound thanks you all. Keep smokin them!
RickMabry I really like the running total but scares me cause I have not got one yet, oh well more motivation!
Avery Fenne Hopefully some will be shot in Burnett County. Are deer population is extremely low and bear is way up. DNR needs to hand out a few more tags in NW WI.
Jerome Zondlo Wipe them off Wisconsin along with pit bull dogs.
Maureen Drinkman awesome!! less pups next year~!!!!
Chad Haucke We keep this up the IR deer herd is gunna prosper!!!!!!
Kyle Drinkwine About 10 miles from there now, watching the Wi badgers kick ass, love Wi, and love smoking a pack a day
Had enough of that “tolerance” and “respect” yet? It goes on and on and gets even more vile. Here are a couple of messages that Dane County Conservation Congress Delegate, and WE VOW friend, Melissa Smith, received today showing how women and Native Americans are also “tolerated” and “respected” in Wisconsin:
Brent Charles Go fuck yourself bitch
JB Brown: timbernigger
And last but not least the wolf hater that is disappointed that his dogs may not be able to “let my dogs rip the throat out of one of them”
Tolerant enough for you? There are literally thousands of comments like these on that page but Durkin and the DNR keep pretending that wolf hunters “respect” wolves. Sure they do. And for the enablers that run that hate page it would be a good idea to stop threatening and enabling those that harass wildlife advocates. You see Melissa Smith is an ELECTED official with the Conservation Congress and any threats or harassment will bring enhanced charges. You may want to consider that before spouting off or allowing your “readers” to harass or threaten her. Terroristic threats are not taken lightly these days. Just remember that. And I hope your “bloggers” have better grammar and spelling skills than you commenters do.
Wildlife advocates next time a DNR talking head or one of their propaganda mouthpieces like Patrick Durkin or Paul Smith talk about how much wolf “hunters” respect wolves just direct them to that disgusting page or the comment section of any story about wolves.
And here are more Wisconsin “sportsmen” in action in a newly obtained video showing how much they “respect” wildlife:
