Think Of Wolves Over This Holiday Weekend!!

Bella, a husky that lost one of its hind legs in a snare meant for wolves, was a featured to help illustrate the argument of wolf supporters. (SHAWN GUST/Press}

A great pro-wolf  rally was held in Coeur d’ alene yesterday. It brought a huge crowd of dedicated wolf activists. Thanks to my friends Ann Sydow, Brett Havestick, Dr. Catherine, Nancy Taylor and so many others who worked  hard to make the rally a success.  Thanks to Bella the husky, who was a star of the rally.  Bella lost one of her legs due to a disgusting snare. She is a hero to all of us.

If the the wolf hating crowd thinks we are going away they are sadly mistaken. Yet today Wyoming wolves were officially delisted. This will  allow wolves to be shot on sight in 90% of the state.  Thanks to the Obama administration we now have wolf hunts in 5 states and Michigan just introduced a wolf hunt bill in their state House of Representatives.

Thinks may look bleak for wolves but this is only temporary. We will fight until our last breath to see their ESA protections restored. Take heart wolf advocates.

I will be off and on the computer until after the Labor day weekend. Think of the wolves in Montana who will be shot with arrows, dying gruesome, painful deaths.  Wolf bow hunting season starts in Montana tomorrow and runs into October. Pups are not off limits.  Think about Idaho wolves who are being hunted as I type this. Think about the wolves in the Great Lakes who will suffer the same fate.

We live to fight on. Do not lose hope. we are working behind the scenes to effect change for wolves!

For the wolves, For the wild ones,

Nabeki

Howling mad

About 70 rally in protest of Idaho wolf hunt

COEUR d’ALENE - Idaho’s wolf management plan, said Dr. Catherine Feher-Elston, is not working.

That’s because, she said, “it’s not management.”

“It’s killing, it’s slaughter,” said Feher-Elston, a naturalist and wolf advocate who spoke at what was both a pro-wolf rally and protest of Idaho’s year-round hunting season on wolves Thursday at City Park.

“We have to fight to stop this,” she said.

About 70 people attended the gathering that included speakers, songs, a dog that lost a leg to a trap, and a presentation of how to release pets from traps. There were signs that read “Stop the Slaughter” and “Wolves Belong,” while many wore shirts with pictures of wolves.

And while folks, literally, were howling at times, the meeting was mostly calm, but for a few moments when a man who supported wolf management arrived and began recording some of the speakers.

  1. Thank you Ann… Thank You!!!

    Sent from my iPhone

  2. I hate all hunting but especially bow hunting. What kind of people think it is fun to fill an animal full of arrows. Wonder how they would like it.

    As for the rally, I’m so glad a lot of people were there. I was wondering if the wolf haters would show up and disgrace themselves further, but I guess not.

  3. I will fight to the end to save the Wolves.

  4. I simply cannot imagine a world without them, especially our America. Will fight the good fight for them! :)

  5. We foresaw this coming…I’m crying so bad as I type this..I’m so sick of it.. I literally feel sick…while we struggle for the welfare of the wolves, aime other idiots like Obama rhw bastard sit back and watch how a bunch if drunk assholes torture this innocent animals to death…WHY CAN’T THIS STOP!? WHY THEY DON’T RATHER PLAY FOOTBALL OR SOMETHING! ? they are going on a rampage!! they just go smoothly in approving EVERYTHING that has to do with this slaughter. I mean FUCK NO! they are even saying that killing wolves is the funnest thing they have done!! I can’t, just can’t take it anymore!! they have declared war in us and the wolves! If you could see how Nabeki’s posts are quoted in trapping pages, they laugh at us and call us hippies and nut jobs, screwballs and crap!! I DO believe in diplomacy, but they have gone just plain TOO FAR!! This is NO open season!! It IS a WAR!! we can compare this to Nazi Germany!! wolves are being massacred and they are totally helpless!! I am just enraged now, ENRAGED!! I know wolf advocates are working, BUT OBAMA AND HIS MINIONS ARE JUST LAUGHING AT US!! They can and WILL ignore us. they don’t care at all! sorry for my language and my drastic methods, but we HAVE to take REAL action! Destroy traps, This events REQUIRE actions of such magnitude by all means. People, wake up, they ARE killing..pups as well! we can’t just wait for a petition to make effect! IF they want war WE WILL FIGHT!! WOLVES WILL BE FREE OF HUMAN OPPRESSION!! I WILL ENSURE THE WELFARE OF THE WOLVES! OR DIE TRYING!!!!!!!

    • I understand. I had tears in my eyes as well when I was informed of this INSANE decision. No creature on this Planet deserves to be Hunted. It is bad enough Humans stalk each other. To become an Environmentalist you need to be prepared for a BATTLE. It is sad. I have so many projects. Coal Ash, Clean Water Act, Big Cats, Drilling in the Arctic. Yikes. Keep that heartfelt feeling. Our World needs HELP. EDUCATE the Children.

  6. I agree, but what to do – the “democrat” in office is worse than the asshole republicans and I also wonder why “they” don’t play football or go to some sort of “simple” activity that does not involve killing such a beautiful, necessary animal? I do not get it! How about a human wall around some of these Wolves – is that even a remote possibility? We have one Wolf in California and I worry constantly about him – there was fire in his area and apparently he figured out “dinner” would come out of the fire and he could catch it! Very sad, he is looking for mate and there are none. Supposedly fish and game are keeping track of his whereabouts via radio collar (of course!) and he has not gone near any domestic animal or cow except for a dead cow (why don’t ranchers stop this) and he is beautiful!

  7. I too am enraged and completely empathize. I write letters to the WH saying if you want our vote again (indicating that there are thousands of us who voted for him last time that will not vote for him again unless he relists wolves on the ESA)….I just emailed three different versions of my letter with the emphasis on wanting our votes.. the republicants are even worse on the environment…(hard to imagine worse, but they are)…bottom line, my conscience will not allow me to vote period and that is the essence of what I’m communcating and will continue to do so….via email and phone….
    I think the suggestion to destroy traps and surround wolves with a human shield and to shoot warning shots at the potential killers are all excellent ideas….I have been thinking about the destroying traps idea and setting them around the decision makers homes instead….in lieu of warning shots, perhaps tranquilizer darts….they can’t hurt anyone when they’re sleeping…there is danger in the warning shots idea, because they could ostensibly return fire….a tranquilizer dart puts them temporarily out of commission….

    we do not to take protective action en masse as well as diligently pursuing the relisting of wolves…

    it does not suprise me that haters and killers who do the work of the Devil mock us and laugh at us and call us names…..consider the source……I frankly don’t care what they call us or what they think…why would I? I do not respect them or like them….I loathe them and wish they would all immediately go to Hell where they are destined to go…I just would like to see it happen sooner than later so more innocent lives are spared….to be called a name by the Devil worshippers (which is what they are) is what I would rather have happen instead of their murderous actions……I would rather be called a myriad of names and see no harm come to any wolf….

    May the Lord protect the wolves and make all of the traps and snares disintegrate and all of the arrows and guns backfire…each and every one so only the killers are killed….Amen..

  8. I don’t care what they call us, they are the ones who are laughable, and they don’t even know it. Hippies and nutjobs? Pfffft! That’s the best they can do. Call us anything, we don’t care. :)

    • I agree. I have lost “friends” due to my love for Our Planet. I am in the process of my Master’s Degree. I will not give up on this issue. Nat Geo has been informed. I can not WAIT to see the research.

  9. Obama gave the OK to drill in the Artic. Well, that’s a mess of votes he just lost. Good news from Wisconsin . Judge Anderson just placed an injunction on using dogs on wolves. DNR is whining along with the hounders. Check with Wolfwatcher. Danielle, what research are you refering to?

  10. That poor Husky I imagine that trap that took his leg would have been very painful, and they doing this to wolves makes me sick!

  11. Traps should be outlawed. When I visited the California Wolf Center several years ago they had a trap there on display to show us how awful they were, and I hoped it would stay a remnant of shameful history. Never did I think its kind would be used again for any animal.

    • My Best Friend and I not only thought of Wolves, but visited one of the BEST County Parks. The Park recently aquired 2 Grey Wolf pups. Brothers. Hunter and Scout. Both are Buff colored. Hunter was LOVING his ice block (it was almost 90 degrees F). The most beautiful copper eyes I have ever seen. I will have photos posted on Trip Advisor soon. Here is the link http://www2.montcopa.org/parks/cwp/view,a,1519,q,26447.asp

      If you live in the area, please visit these special Wolves.

  12. They are idiots! Thank you for doing rally. Blessed Bella! The wolves have to feed the pack also.. The man in the picture he have to feed his family.. Bully! They don’t WANTS to share the meats with the wolves. What the so SELFISH they are!!! Won’t let them get us, NEVER!!! Keep fights for our brothers and sisters until end! Wolves are God’s sake name after! Wolf- DOG backward GOD. Last creature follow God and gave a name the dog backward of God. Pleasure. Shame on the humane! Not at all. We the people! Who are cares on the mother earth and the animals.
    Long lives for the wolves!

  13. Please read, confirm, and RT on twitter, Fbook, other activist sites.
    The truth needs to be revealed about the manipulations of the beef industry. NCBA is entirely too powerful. Ranchers are, by and large, too
    entitled and subsidized. NCBA is a powerful lobby, deeply embedded in the USDA.

    Thanks for circulating the below information if you agree.

    USDA has just been caught funneling millions of dollars of taxpayer money into the hands of beef industry lobbyists:
    http://www.naturalnews.com/037051_USDA_beef_industry_lobbyists.html

    http://www.naturalnews.com/022666_beef_recall_products.html

    • As is the Coal Industry. Let’s face it. We are killing the Planet. I WILL NEVER GIVE UP.

    • P.S. I grew up in Iowa. I do not eat beef, nor do I eat pork. I have seen first hand how these animals are treated. If you can call it “treatment.”

      • I think that we need to get the word out to all homeless and out of work folks (millions of people) and whoever can take time off and get there that all of these folks (and us) go to Idaho Montana and Wyoming and remove all the traps/disengage them and form human shields around the wolves/the hunters…..there are enough of us to stop them in their tracks….period….and we can go to NM – the Gila forest and remove all the traps and stop them from taking the matriarch….and if folks can get to the Arctic, we can form human shields around the drill folks – take away their airguns so they can’t harm any whales or dolphins. I am advocating a non violent end to the war on Wolves and the Environment (in the vein of Ghandi)…..we can and will succeed…there are more of us…it’s all a matter of getting the word out so that we (millions of us) become human shields of protection.

        Here is my letter I sent to the usfws and the dept of interior and to the white house….I will keep sending it daily to the white house:

        Delisting wolves goes against science. They are not fully recovered.
        Citing Idaho and Montana confirms the fact that you have just fast
        tracked wolves to extinction.

        Idaho and Montana are examples of what not to do – extermination.

        The majority of people willingly paid for wolf recovery from their
        last near extinction from man’s doing. The majority of people still
        want wolves protected. This is supposed to be a democracy but in
        reallity hunters and ranchers (the livestock industry) have more “say”
        than the people. That’s uncontitutional, but that’s business as usual
        in Idaho and Montana. They have consciously purposely ignored publlic
        outcry and continue to brutally, sadistically torture and kill wolvers
        indiscriminately; including pregnant moms, lactating moms and pups.
        Wolves are social intelligent animals. They mate for life. Who but a
        follower of Satan’s behaves like this? Sanctioning this so now Wyoming
        will replicate this horrific war on wolves is going against both
        science and the wishes of the people. It is anti God and anti
        Constitutional behavior.

        While there is still time to do the right thing, please do. Please
        relist wolves. THEY ARE ENDANGERED AND EXTINCTION IS FOREVER!

        WE THE PEOPLE WANT WOLVES RELISTED AND PROTECTED!

        BAN TRAPS AND SNARES….88 COUNTRIES DO!

        WE ARE TAXPAYERS AND VOTERS!

        DOESN’T WHAT WE WANT MEAN ANYTHING?

        I implore you to do the right thing. STOP DISREGARDING PUBLIC OUTCRY!
        YOU ARE NOT ON THE RANCHERS PAYROLL….YOU ARE ON THE PEOPLE’S
        PAYROLL….YOU ANSWER TO US…WE WANT GRAZING PERMITS RETIRED….WE
        WANT WOLVES PROTECTED….

        STOP LETTING COWS GRAZE IN WOLF RECOVERY AREAS……LET WOLVES
        RECOVER….STOP KILLING THEM TO PROTECT CATTLE THAT SHOULDN’T BE THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE!

        If you have men who will exclude any of God’s creatures from the
        shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal
        likewise with their fellow men. —St. Francis of Assisi

        “You can judge a country by the way in which it treats its animals” —Ghandi

        “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out–
        Because I was not a Socialist.

        Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out–
        Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

        Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out– Because I was not a Jew.

        Then they came for me–and there was no one left to speak for me”
        —Martin Niemöller

        I AM SPEAKING OUT FOR THE WOLVES!

        IF YOU WANT THOUSANDS OF VOTES THAT YOU HAD LAST TIME, RELIST WOLVES AND REVOKE SHELL’S AND APACHE’S PERMITS TO DRILL IN COOKS INLET AND THE ARCTIC. IF NOT, THOUSANDS OF FOLKS WHO VOTED FOR YOU LAST TIME WILL EITHER VOTE FOR ROMNEY OR NOT VOTE…WHICH IS TANTAMOUNT TO VOTING FOR HIM.

        WE ARE DISENFRANCHISED. THE ENVIRONMENT – NO NEW DRILLING IN THE ARCTIC NOW OR EVER AND WILD LIFE/ANIMALS ARE OUR ISSUES. THERE ARE LIKELY MILLIONS OF US. FIRE SALAZAR AND REPLACE HIM WITH SOMEONE THAT IS PRO ANIMAL. THIS ELECTION IS PROJECTED TO BE CLOSE…WHY WOULD YOU CONTINUE TO LOSE OUR VOTES?

  14. So well spoken :( See my favoririte tale (tail)
