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....

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)

Please, we need to conserve and protect the Wolf. Do not hunt them, but save them from being hunted.
