The Killing Must Be Stopped.

This sick and disturning photo came from WWA Animal Awareness facebook page. The sick person shown here boasts about the illegal trapping and killing of a wolf in Wisconsin. He’s a poacher and people like him must be stopped. We must take action against poachers as well as continue the fight to protect these wonderful creatures. This will be reported to the Wisconsin Department of Fish and Wildlife or the local DNR office. We must stop the simceless killing of wolves.

 

Corey Anderson of Wisconsin boasts that he caught a wolf in one of his leg hold traps....."too bad I never bought a tag"........lots of boasting on wolf killing pages tonight about poaching....

How Can We Let This Happen

Photo

 

It sickens me to read daily about how many wolves are being slaughtered, and for what? Nothing. Its ranchers such as those in Washington state that claim wolves are to blame for their cattle being killed. Well here’s the thing. These ranchers, and not just in Washington state. Theey let their cattle free roam and allowed to graze in fields that are not fenced in. And the wolves are just doing what they have been doing for hundreds of years, hell what any animal does, look for food. In this case, I blame man for allowing the eniter Wedge Pack of wolves in Washington state to be slaughtered and using tax payer money to use a helicopter and a sniper to find and shoot the Alpha male of the pack. In the weeks to follow his entire pack was wiped out.

 

Whats the point of petitions when the government turns their back on wildlife conservation, when they are the ones in charge of protecting wildlife. We se sign the petitions to stop the hunts, but the feds turn control over to the states and before we have a chance to start another petition for the states to stop the wolf hunting, its to late. As of today 142 wolves slaughtered in 4 states. Here is the break down.

 

Idaho – 65

Montana – 24

Wyoming – 31

Wisconsin – 22

 

And these numbers only reflect the wolves killed “legally” by way of hunters having a “permit” to kill them. What a crock or crap. Something must be done to stop the slaughter of these creatures who not are a joy to observe, listen to and photographed, but they are a important part of the ecosystem.

 

Do your part today, contact your state reps. Email them, cll them, send certified letters letting them know that you want the needless killing of these creatures to stop and to also contact your Congressmen/women to have these creatures put back on the endangered species list. We must act now for our future generations to see and enjoy these wonders of nature.

Michigan Wolves

From Wolfwatcher on facebook this morning,

So, how do states keep track of wolves? Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources pilot, Neil Harri, takes Lansing State Journal reporters up in the sky for a unique wolf tracking experience. You can watch it via the link at: http://www. lansingstatejournal.com/videonetwork/1497327787001/Rise-of-the-gray-wolf Wolfwatcher’s Great Lakes Director has been a strong voice for wolves in the region, and she spoke out (again) to Lansing State reporters: QUOTE: “A poorly managed hunt could have a cascade effect on the wolf population and result in more animals dying than just those taken in a harvest, said Nancy Warren, Great Lakes regional director for the National Wolfwatcher Coalition and a member of the wolf roundtable that drafted the management plan. …

For example, she said, if a hunter took a male wolf who has pups in the den, the pups could either starve to death or force the female wolf to seek the easiest sources of food —livestock. The female wolf could then be taken by a farmer with a permit. Over time, those kinds of ripple effects could once again threaten the entire wolf population, she said. “There is no scientific evidence or research to support the need for a recreational hunting season,” Warren said. “The DNR already has many tools to manage conflicts. We allow lethal control by wildlife services, when nonlethal are ineffective. Livestock producers get compensation for verified losses. Landowner permits allow landowners to kill wolves if they have suffered depredation. It’s only been nine months. Let’s give the plan time to work.” (end quote)
