I am sickened, disgusted, and enraged to read that in Wisconsin, hunters (assholes with guns) killed 216 wolves within 60 hours! WHY??? What is it about the human species that leads them to think they have a right to take other species lives for ‘sport’? 216 wolves died at the hands of jerks who are so cowardly they need guns to make them feel like ‘men’.
According to the story in The Guardian …
The kills all took place in less than 60 hours, quickly exceeding Wisconsin’s statewide stated limit of 119 animals.
As a result, Wisconsin’s department of natural resources ended the season, which was scheduled to span one week, four days early.
While department officials were reportedly surprised by the number of gray wolves killed, they described the population as “robust, resilient” and expressed confidence in managing the numbers “properly going forward”.
So, it’s ‘okay’ that 216 wolves lost their lives in less than 3 days, because the wolf population has enough remaining wolves that it is not in danger of extinction? But … what about the 216 who died??? They had as much right to life as the damned ‘men’ who shot and killed them so that they could brag to their friends, perhaps even hang a wolf’s head on the wall above their fireplace. WHY should there even be a ‘hunting season’??? In this, the 21st century, people buy their food at the grocery store – there is no need to kill innocent animals for food. The wolves weren’t threatening to harm these sorry excuses for ‘men’ … the men went out of their way to shoot and kill the wolves … wolves who, by the way, did not carry guns, could not defend themselves.
A federal judge, in response to a lawsuit from wildlife advocates, decided in December 2014 that the gray wolf must be put back on the Endangered Species List. In October 2020, the Trump administration removed the gray wolf from the Endangered Species List.
One more reason for me to despise the former guy … as if I needed another.
Last month, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources decided not to hold a hunting season on wolves this year, but a Kansas-based hunting advocacy group filed suit against them, forcing them to ‘hold a season’ before the end of February. I will be finding out the name and address of that ‘advocacy group’ and they are going to receive a letter that will be so full of wrath that it will burn their fingers when they open the envelope!
There are far better hobbies a person can have than murdering innocent animals! Take up bowling, knitting, wood-carving, learn a new language, maybe even learn proper English! Nobody … NOBODY has the right to determine how many of a species should be allowed to live on this planet! NOBODY has that right! If they did, then I would suggest the world is far overpopulated by humans, so let’s have an open season on them and kill off a million or so every year!
I hope every last one of those sorry excuses for humans who killed a wolf has nightmares every night for the rest of their lives.
They say that the United States, aka ‘America’ is a free country, but apparently that means something different to some than it does to me. Apparently to many it means freedom for humans, death for all other species. Some days I hate humans.
