Lords of Nature: Life in a Land of Great Predators

Lords of Nature is a ground breaking documentary filmed by Karen and Ralf Meyer of Greenfire Productions. It explores the importance of apex predators in shaping healthy ecosystems. 
Please visit http://lordsofnature.org where you can purchase the DVD and find a screening in your area. 
This enlightening video is for anyone interested in educating themselves and others on the role apex predators play in our natural world.  The current climate of intolerance is not acceptable.  We must find better ways to co-exist with the wolf, grizzly bear and mountain lion to assure that future generations will benefit from their presence in our wild-lands and forests.

Montana Wolf Hunt: Total of 3 Wolves Killed

 

 

I hate reporting on the cumulative number of wolves dead in the Montana wolf hunt but I feel an obligation to keep track of the them. I will see this through the fall and winter when this shameless hunt will cease. 

The wolves in Idaho aren’t so lucky. They’ll be hunted through March 31, almost the entire wolf mating season, which normally runs from February to early April. Judge Molloy’s decision on the merits of this case couldn’t come soon enough for me. 

 MT has 2nd and 3rd kill of the wolf season

Idaho Mountain Express: Wolf hunt is shameful

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

How very unfortunate that Idaho went for the wolf hunt. As a resident for 35 years, I am supremely disappointed to witness the depredation of a proud and beautiful species that was reintroduced for good reasons and at great expense.

Dog owners—better keep your German shepherd dogs, huskies and large mixed breeds indoors. It will be a very sad hunting season this year.

Idaho Wolf Hunt Celebrated By Auctioning Commemorative Tags

If anyone doubted hunters are celebrating and gloating over the wolf hunt in Idaho, look no further.  Idaho, Fish and Game is teaming up with pro hunting groups to auction off commemorative wolf tags 1 though 10.  

To commemorate the killing of wolves, after all the work and years dedicated people have spent to bring these magnificent apex predators back from the brink, is stunning to me.  Just when I thought things couldn’t get any more shameful concerning the wolf hunts, it does.

Idaho puts wolf hunting tags on the auction block

Wolves

To commemorate the first public wolf hunt in state history, Idaho Fish and Game is auctioning off state gray wolf hunting tags Nos. 1 through 10 via six hunting and wildlife conservation groups.

Proceeds from these tags will go to the Idaho wolf management program, which aids in wolf conservation and management, public education, population monitoring and law enforcement.

  • Tags No. 3 and 8 will be sold by the Mule Deer Foundation through sealed Internet bids closing Sept. 28.

Each organization will keep a portion of the proceeds to cover its costs.

Winning bidders will receive one commemorative tag suitable for display plus a duplicate for use when hunting. Since state rules allow only one wolf tag per person per calendar year, any winner that already has an unused tag may exchange it. Winners must also have a current Idaho hunting license to claim their tag.
