Howling For Justice Turns One!!

Thank you dear readers!! You’ve made this blog a success with over 200,000 hits in our first year!! 

When I started this journey it was a very dark time for wolves. They were hunted in two states and Wildlife Services was continuing to conduct “shadow wolf” hunts for agribusiness. 

Wolf advocates were stunned when the Obama administration followed in the footsteps of George Bush and stripped wolves of their ESA protections. The year that followed was the worst wolves have experienced in the Northern Rockies since their reintroduction.

The inspiration for this blog came from the iconic wolf Limpy, who was shot dead outside Daniel, Wyoming on the very day the then Bush administration delisted wolves the first time, in March 08. He died for nothing, a sad end for a stellar wolf. This blog is dedicated to his memory.

Here’s a look back at September 2009, when the hated wolf hunts began in the Northern Rockies!

Hunters Kill Two Wolves In Idaho On Opening Day

September 2, 2009 | 12:45 pm

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/outposts/2009/09/idaho-wolf-hunt.html

=======

Over five hundred wolves died in the Northern Rockies in 2009 and they continue to be targeted by Wildlife Services for agribusiness. 

Gray wolves remain under siege from ranching and hunting lobbies. Robbed of their wolf hunts, they are scheming and plotting, trying to find a way to undo Judge Molloy’s decision to relist wolves.

But we are here to stand with wolves, stronger every day, determined to fight on, we will never give up and never give in. May this be a better year for our wolf brethren. Onward Wolf Warriors!

For the wolves, For the wild ones,

Nabeki

      I know how passionate you are about animals and how dedicated to this battle you are. Wolves are symbols of freedom and of our wild places we want to preserve for our children and grandchildren. The haters don’t own the wolves, they don’t own the elk and they have no right to do what they are doing except some trumped up fish and game agency grabbed the power over our wildlife and are holding them in a head lock. We have to remind them there are other voices to be heard and WILL be heard. This brutal system of killing and profiting over the bones of dead animals needs to change.

    Between Howling for Justice and Wolf Warriors with you and Jerry Black I now feel that we are making progress, and that more and more people are realizing it’s not the Wolves – it’s the ranchers and hunters that are decimating the elk herds and destroying PUBLIC lands.

      I think this year will be a good one for wolf adovcates because no matter what the antis are scheming to do, we are on to them. They WILL NOT be allowed to meddle with the ESA for their selfish reasons. The only reason wolves made their comeback is because of the ESA. That’s a battle we can’t lose. I know you’re up for the fight as we all are. If we stand together we can win this for wolves!!

    Idaho county declares disaster over wolves

    http://www.khq.com/Global/story.asp?S=13169480

    BOISE, Idaho (AP) – Officials in Idaho County want Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter to declare an ongoing disaster that will allow wolves to be shot on sight, citing attacks on livestock and wildlife.

    Like

    • Oh no they are at it again in Idaho with wolf disaster edicts. They tried this before and even Otter wouldn’t go along with it. I think these people have forgotten wolves are a federally protected species. More nutty stuff coming out of Idaho although Montana is being just as unreasonable in their relentless quest to have wolf hunts.

      Resolution seeks ‘emergency’ reduction in wolves in the state
      at 2:44 p.m. on February 15, 2010

      Idaho Legislature Lawmakers would declare an emergency and urge the governor to do the same and order the state’s wolf population reduced, under a concurrent resolution introduced today in the House Resources Committee at the urging of Rep. Dick Harwood, R-St. Maries. “This bill is about legislators being able to show their support, should the governor so wish to have an executive order to have wolves removed,” Harwood told the committee. Rep. George Sayler, D-Coeur d’Alene disagreed, and said the resolution appears to move Idaho toward a position like that of Wyoming, which hasn’t been given authority to manage its wolf population because of its refusal to enact acceptable wolf management plans.

      “I think we all know how big this issue has been in our state the last 10 or 12 years, and the struggle we went through as a state to get to the position to where we can manage wolves,” Sayler said. “To me, this is a move back toward a Wyoming position. … This is a step back to more court cases.” Sayler moved to kill the bill, but was outvoted along party lines, with only the panel’s Democrats voting in support. The committee then voted, again along party lines, to introduce a corrected version of the resolution. Among the last-minute changes: The resolution now says that it encourages the governor to declare a state of emergency and require the Idaho Department of Fish and Game to use “any legal means” to reduce wolf numbers, instead of just “use any means.”

      The committee also voted to introduce a measure from Rep. Phil Hart, R-Athol, to make “human consumptive use” of certain game species a top priority for Fish & Game’s management of wildlife, even though Hart, tied up in another committee, didn’t show up to present the bill. Rep. Dell Raybould questioned whether a precedent was being set that the way to get a bill introduced was to not show up. Chairman Bert Stevenson said he was concerned about that, but since the committee wanted to proceed and today is the last day for bill introductions, he allowed it.

  11. Nabeki and all Wolf Advocates, I am taking the liberty of posting this here because as Nabeki pointed out even though this is a wolf blog, the blatant disregard for the lives of animals that we share our planet with is sometimes so inhumane and downright evil it must be stopped. I am talking about the round ups of the wild mustangs and the BLM continuing to do so despite public out cry. Today, the BLM have agreed to all wild mustangs going to a sanctuary (including the ones currently in fed holding pens). Once more and more people found out what was going on it created a momentum that was unstoppable. I know that is also where we are with saving our wolves.

    This is the link and it is an awesome victory indeed:

    Like

    • Hi SoCalWolfGal,
      This is a great victory for mustangs held in holding pens, the terror and sadness they must feel being rounded up off their range is heartbreaking. I just read the BLM sent 173 wild horses to slaughter, they stated they were feral horses and not wild horses but there is no way to tell by looknig at them.

      I wish we could get the kind of support for wolves that M. Pickens was able to achieve with her campaign. It shows you the power of the people when they rally for a cause.

      One thing that concerns me is I think Madeleine stated the mustangs going to her eco-sanctuary would be sterilized. If all the wild horses were put in a sanctuary they wouldn’t be breeding and we’d lose our mustangs. I agree with the horses in holding pens going to her sanctuary but the BLM needs to leave the tiny population of wild horses that are still on the range alone. They want them the horses off their so they can develop oil and gas leases and have more room for cows. There are over one hundred million cattle in this country and only 20,000 or less mustangs left in the wild. Do you have anymore details about the plan? I’m happy for the horses that have been rounded up but worried about taking all our horses off their range that was promised to them by Congress.

      • Hi Nabeki, I understood that sterilizing the horses in the sanctuary was not an option; that was one of the “ideas” the BLM put forward, and I certainly do not and would not agree to that. I don’t have any further details at the moment but will share them once they are made available. As I understood the it there are thousands of acres and the reason for the fence surrounding where the horses will be is to keep the BLM from them having to “protect” the wild horses. I hope to have much more information soon.

    This guy like a good deal of hunters, blames predators, in this case coyotes for low deer #s. He refers to coyotes as fleabags. I thought coyotes are widllife and this guy is calling them fleabags just because they eat deer and blames them specifically for the low deer #s in Maine. This just proves yet again hunters do not care about all wildlife, only the animals they kill either for food. He goes on to say that hunters went hungry this past year because the coyotes supposedly in his opinion wiped out all of the deer. I am sick to death of these hunters blaming predators every time there may be low deer or elk #s. I also find it laughable that he says that a few thousands hunters went hungry. Hunters do not go hungry if they don’t get their deer or elk. They don’t need these animals to survive and they know it. I am certain that not one hunter in Maine went hungry or was starving to death just because he couldn’t get a deer.

    Like

    • Jon… totally agree, this guy is full of it. Hunters are not going hungry in Maine, it’s expensive to hunt. One of the most expensive “sports”. They could save some of that money and go to the store. If they don’t want to eat the horrible factory farm meat they can check out the organic farmers. OR better yet become a vegetarian and give the animals a break.

      One thing I do have to say is I love Maine for it tremendous beauty but unfortunately it loaded with the same hunters that we have in the Northern Rockies.

      I remember once visting friends near the Canadian border in Maine, a big bull moose stepped onto the road and we sat for 1/2 hour until he moved. And I mean he was BIG!!

It’s sickening and places like Maine have coyote killing contests and the hunter who kills the most coyotes wins money and prizes. This is 2010 and it’s disgusting to see tournaments like this going on. Does anyone see anything wrong with this picture? Coyotes are wildlife and they are being treated as vermin.

I’ve seen hundreds od videos on youtube of hunters killing coyotes and there is no point to it. You kill a coyote with a high powerered rifle. I mean seriously, there is nothing hard about it. Anyone can do it. It takes no skills at all. It isn’t normal behavior to want to kill animals for sport. That killing coyotes to control their population is nonsense. Hunters, if they have any smarts at all know you can’t control the coyote population. That is a lame excuse to justify pleasure killing. All those coyotes have a role to play in the ecosystem. Hunters are one of the worst things to ever happen to ecosystems.

  22. At least we know from history that as Redneck Elmer the hunter passes on into the next life the coyote will still be here. That is a fact! I have a family of them living in my neighborhood!!!

    • Thank you so much Carly for your support, it means a lot to me. I love your enthusiasm!! 🙂 Just one thing, Howling for Justice is five years old, it was started in September 2009, just after the Spring Northern Rockies wolf delisting by the Obama administration. The first organized wolf hunts were being held in Montana and Idaho, just months after the wolves delisting. I was outraged by this, having been a staunch wolf and animal rights activist for many years.

      Thank you also for posting the hashtag #Howling For Justice with each of your comments 🙂

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,
