Wisconsin Knee Deep In Wolf Blood….

gray wolf dnr wi.gov

When I was a kid I loved Wisconsin. We spent our summers there in a rustic cabin by a deep blue lake. I spent hours laying on the pier watching tadpoles develop on lazy summer afternoons.  I loved to see their little legs springing to life,  turning them into frogs. There were snapping turtles on the beach, bullfrogs, the lake was teeming with fish. The little sunnys and perch would shelter under the pier during the hottest parts of the day. I remember tracing my fingers through the water thinking about nothing but the warmth of the sun and blue sky overhead, wonderful days.  I tracked muskrats through the marshes near the cabin, built forts with my friends, spent time at a dairy farm down the road, drinking fresh milk, straight from the cow. We spent hours sitting in an ancient apple tree, chatting about the day, At night the cows would trek home from the field, the lead cow wore a bell and all the other cows would line in behind her as she led them home. That’s when dairy cows spent their days grazing on lush pasture not holed up in dark, dank factory farms. In the winter we’d ice skate on the lake, making sure not to get too close to the reeds and cattails where the ice was thin. Those were precious memories from my youth, now tainted by the wolf slaughter. Wisconsin has become a  killing field for gray wolves.  I no longer love it and the images of my youth have been ruined forever.  I only think of  Wisconsin now when I read the latest evil done to the wolves, who are being systematically destroyed in my childhood playground.

In the states second wolf hunting season 251 wolves have been targeted for death.  They are knee-deep in wolf blood in Wisconsin, 193 wolves have been wiped out since the hunt began. They’re aiming for a total of 251 dead wolves and it looks like they’re going to get there pretty darn quick. An average of 11 wolves are being killed every day since the hunt began on October 15, a mere 22 days ago.

The only upside to this horror is the dog/wolf hunt probably won’t happen this year, as they race toward their murderous ” 251 dead wolf quota”. By the time it’s legal to hunt wolves with dogs, on December 2,  the “wolf blood lust season” will be closed/ maybe? There’s an appeal waiting  to be decided, only the court can stop this “dog/on/wolf”
madness.

“When a pack of dogs pursues a wolf … a wolf will turn and fight and kill if necessary to protect its territory. And there you have a state-sanctioned bloody dog fight right here on our public land.”…..Opposing Views

And I thought the Northern Rockies were brutal but they’re downright vicious in Wisconsin.

Wolf Wars Part 1000…

Wolf_Wars_Infographic_Center_for_Biological_Diversity.jpg

October 7, 2013

This banner,  from Center For Biological Diversity, pretty much says it all…although I think the Northern Rockies estimate is too high, Nobody really knows how many wolves reside in Idaho, Montana or Wyoming.  Jay Mallonee, Montana wolf biologist, believes Montana FWP’s data on wolf numbers is seriously flawed.  AND the chart doesn’t take into account the number of wolves who died in Montana and Idaho in 2009/2010. Over 500 wolves perished in the wolf hunt, Wildlife Services killings, 10j, poaching and general mortality…which would raise the total of dead wolves to over 2000, not including the ongoing wolf hunts taking place now, Wildlife Services slaughter and continued poaching of these beleaguered animals.

The Obama administration has been the worst thing  for wolves since their first  extermination in the lower 48. He and his cronies have undone the hard-won progress made to  bring wolves back from the brink!

Another Senseless Killing, Yearling Wolf, OR 16 Slain For Nothing…

OR 16 ODFW
Yearling Wolf OR-16, a member of Oregon’s Walla Walla pack , was slain January 19, 2013 in the bloody Idaho wolf hunt

Update: May 5, 2013

While we’re mourning the death of OR-5, remember Oregon’s Walla Walla Pack yearling wolf  OR-16, was also slaughtered in Idaho’s wolf hunt in January of this year. That makes three Oregon collared wolves wiped out in Idaho. Anyone think collaring wolves is a good thing? Interesting how collared wolves are targeted so easily. As Bob Dylan famously wrote, “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows”!

===

January 25, 2013

Here’s the convo from an anti-wolf Facebook page laughing about  OR-16′s death. This is what these freaks find funny, the death of a yearling wolf.

Too bad it didn’t get shot. So much for the whole family thing the wolf humpers claim.

  Larry O.
    Hopefully he will stay in Idaho long enough to get angel wings. With that black hide he will make a great rug.

    Bill K
    If us pushing that wolf back over to be shot in idaho works.. we willc ontinue to push many more back for the shooters. hell we will even pay for the ammo. ha ha ha ha.

January 24, 2013

I might as well be a funeral director, that’s all I seem to be doing is reporting on dead wolves.

OR-16, a beautiful black yearling Oregon wolf, who made the terrible mistake of crossing the Snake River into the killing fields of Idaho, was slaughtered  for nothing last Saturday in the deadly Idaho wolf hunt. There was talk he and other collared Oregon wolves were being targeted.

I don’t know about you but I’ve had enough of this insanity. I’m not planning on sitting on my hands this year and watching the carnage continue. Enough is enough. The wolf killers are rubbing our faces in it  but their hubris will be their downfall because wolf advocates are more upset than I’ve ever seen them.

The anti wolf crowd thinks they hold all the cards but they forget they are the minority and we are the majority. It’s just a matter of waking up the sleeping masses. The killing of collared wolves, who many people identify with,  is mobilizing the troops. The killing of Yellowstone’s Lamar Canyon alpha female O6 and her beta male 754 and many other collared  wolves, including  OR-9, brother to famous wolf OR-7 and now OR-16,  has people hopping mad. Not because these wolves are more important than the almost 1000 wolves who’ve been slaughtered since August 30, 2012 but because they are well-known, have numbers and have been written about. People identify with them and their deaths are sparking outrage.  The pro-wolf movement is ready to stand and fight.

Rest in Peace OR-16, beautiful boy. You were just a yearling, never having a chance to live your life. But you will not be forgotten. This is a rallying cry to all who love wolves. The time for lamenting is over. It’s time to take action and work to see wolves relisted.  For all who are frustrated with the ineffective actions of the past, several other wolf advocates and myself are  plotting a new path, one we hope will change the dynamic of this fight.

For the wolves, For OR-16,

Fantasies of killing become increasingly bizarre

Lynne Stone, longtime wolf advocate and executive director of Northern Idaho’s Boulder White Cloud Council in Ketchum, couldn’t help but laugh. For the last two years she has routinely petitioned the Idaho Dept of Fish and Game for every single “ Big Game Mortality Report” filed on wolves killed by hunters —several hundred of them since the animals lost Endangered Species Act protect. Hunters and trappers are required to send in the report along with the skull and pelt for examination. In mid-January Stone ran across a November 2012 report that stated, “DNA came back as a domestic dog,” a light-skinned one.

“Buy a wolf tag, shoot a dog, claim it was a wolf, get bragging rights and a dog-skin rug,” she chuckled “Life is wonderful in 3rd world Idaho. Is anyone missing a light-colored mutt? Maybe it’s time folks put orange vests and hats on their dogs.”

Gallows humor is all wolf supporters have left. In February 2011, Congress removed gray wolves in the northern Rockies from protection by the Endangered Species Act, the first time a species has ever been delisted for political reasons. Before that, the US Fish and Wildlife Service’s reintroduction of wolves to the northern Rockies in the mid-1990s appeared to be one of the greatest conservation successes in decades. Wolves had been killed off in the West in the late nineteenth and early centuries. But while tourists from all over the country came to Yellowstone in hopes of seeing “Cinderella” or “Limpy” — many of the wolves became named — in the Rockies a reactionary political movement developed against the animals.

There was talk that he and other collared Oregon wolves were being targeted.  I remember reading a convo between wolf haters  stating the plan was to try and shuttle as many Oregon wolves into Idaho as possible (wish I could find the quote, I’d gladly post it here.)

Yellowstone’s Iconic 06 Female Falls To a Hunter’s Bullet…

Yellowstone wolf Lamar Canyon Pack Alpha Female_832F and Wolf 754 killed in the hunts

Yellowstone’s Lamar Canyon alpha female, also known as the 06 female or 832F, was shot to death last Thursday,  December 6. Her pack mate, wolf  754 on the right, was killed on November 10th….Photo Doug McLaughlin, NYT 

The iconic alpha female of the Lamar Canyon Pack,  is dead. 832F, was shot to death 15 miles outside of Yellowstone, joining the other collared and un-collared park wolves who’ve had their lives snuffed out in the hunts. Her death saddened people around the world. She was widely known as the 06 Female.

“She is was the most famous wolf in the world,” said Jimmy Jones, a wildlife photographer who lives in Los Angeles and whose portrait of 832F appears in the current issue of the magazine American Scientist….New York Times

06 was the granddaughter of the legendary Druid Peak Pack alpha pair,  21M and 42F.

Will her passing awake a sleeping America to the horrors of the wolf hunts that are not only killing iconic Yellowstone wolves but another 600 wolves in just over three months since the hunts began?

Let her death be a rallying cry for all the lost wolves!

Flood the US Capital with phone calls, contact your Senators and Representatives. Keep the faxes and emails coming. We can make a difference. Wolves must be re-listed or their howls will be silenced forever in the lower forty-eight and Yellowstone wolves will be doomed to live on an island, reducing their chances of genetic connectivity with other wolves living outside the park, who are being subjected to brutal hunting and trapping.

No wolf is safe in America.

STOP THE HUNTS!!

Aug 18, 2011

“This is a video of the Alpha female of the Lamar Canyon Pack (06) on a kill near Slough Creek in Lamar Valley on July 24, 2011. This was shortly after she treed a black bear.”

‘Famous’ Wolf Is Killed Outside Yellowstone

By NATE SCHWEBER

Published: December 8, 2012

The wolf, known as 832F to researchers, was the alpha female of the park’s highly visible Lamar Canyon pack and had become so well-known that some wildlife watchers referred to her as a “rock star.” The animal had been a tourist favorite for most of the past six years.

The wolf was fitted with a $4,000 collar with GPS tracking technology, which is being returned, said Daniel Stahler, a project director for Yellowstone’s wolf program. Based on data from the wolf’s collar, researchers knew that her pack rarely ventured outside the park, and then only for brief periods, Dr. Stahler said.

‘World’s most famous wolf’ shot and killed outside Yellowstone

By Dylan Stableford, Yahoo! News | The Lookout

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/author/dylan-stableford/

===

Montana FWP  finally relented and extended a buffer zone around Yellowstone National Park  for the remainder of the hunt and trapping season. I’m sure their phone lines were burning down from an outraged public, after the killing of the 06 Female and 6 other collared Yellowstone wolves.  She was the most famous, well-known wolf in Yellowstone, known around the world. Her loss will be acutely felt,  not only by her human admirers but her pack, who are now left without their powerful leader.  BUT it doesn’t change the fact that wolves in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and the Great Lakes are still under siege. There is no buffer zone for them. Idaho is trapping and snaring wolves, Montana’s wolf trapping season starts in 5 days, Wisconsin’s wolf hunt continues and the state is still pushing to hunt wolves with dogs…..only a court injunction stopped it but a hearing is scheduled on December 20th to revisit the issue, Minnesota is trapping and killing wolves and Michigan is moving ahead with legislation to hold a wolf hunt.

Please get active and oppose the wolf hunts!!! Nothing will change if we sit silently by! Hold the politicians and feds, who are responsible for this travesty, accountable!

Speak out for the wolves, we are their voice!
