Update: March 27, 2012
I see the trapper website where those horrible images of the trapped and doomed wolf reside has been password protected so you won’t be able to access the site through the KOS article, which is still up BTW. But the images are all over Facebook, not hard to find. The one thing trappers don’t want is for people to see the suffering they cause. Big mistake on their part posting those pictures but we’re thankful they were posted because the wolf won’t have suffered and died in vain. Now his pain has been exposed for all the world to see and it’s uglier than anything I’ve ever witnessed and will stay with me all of my days. Rest in peace beautiful black wolf, we have your back.
The Daily KOS spells out the terrible situation Idaho wolves find themselves in. The brutality and cruelty are escalating. With the addition of trapping and snaring to IDFG’s bag of tricks the suffering quotient for wolves has climbed dramatically. The situation is spinning out of control.

Ever since Obama and John Tester worked to remove wolves from the endangered species list for political purposes, it’s been bad times for wolves. Of course, there’s a track record for all of this. It was the failure of the states that initially killed off the wolves to begin with, forcing them into the government’s hands and the Endangered Species List.
It looks like the states are at it again, and this time Idaho is leading the path to extermination.
There were many of us who cried foul when Tester introduced a rider that would undermine the ESA, the first of its kind, opening the door for wholesale destruction of species by single interests. It was even more shocking when Obama signed the bill into law.
Reasonable people would expect a few wolves to be killed with rifles, and that many of these would be clean. But there’s nothing reasonable about the wolf hate in Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming.
Recent images have become available of a trapped wolf at the far end of a blood circle in the snow. In the photo, a hunter appears to be smiling for a pose. Posters to the website indicate the wolf was shot at while it waited for the trapper to return. Who knows how long it was there, but it looked like quite a while with all that blood in the snow.
Contact information is included in the article for President Obama and Senator Tester. Please use them!!
Idaho wolves need protection from the hate.
IDAHO: 364 wolves killed. (368 Wolves Killed (251 shot, 117 trapped or snared)
