UPDATE: September 6, 2011 @ 5:20 pm
Montana FWP “wolf hunt status update” has changed from two wolves, to zero wolves, to one wolf. Not sure what is going on there and how that mistake was made? Yesterday it was reported in the press that two wolves were killed in Montana, a male in region 390 and a female wolf outside Kalispell in region 101.
Here’s the link to the Montana FWP site. It makes me so sad that wolves have been reduced to faceless, anonymous numbers.
Yes, there’s a chill in the air, fall is coming but instead of enjoying the change of seasons, wolf advocates are subjected to death toll counts rolling in on slaughtered wolves. Montana’s wolf archery “season” started Sept. 3 and ends Oct. 16 Bow hunters are combing the woods looking for wolves to kill and unfortunately they found two victims, a female wolf near Kalispell and a male wolf in region 390. Fish and game has divided the state up into “wolf kill zones”, setting quotas for each one. How convenient.
These wolves died for nothing and 40 more wolves are slated for the same fate during ” wolf archery season”. Who the hell wakes up in the morning and say’s hey, I’m going to run around in the woods today and look for a wolf to kill with my high-tech bow. What a glorious way to spend Labor Day Weekend, NOT! There’s an empathy chip missing here.
Boycott Montana until they stop slaughtering wolves!
Montana Wolf Hunt/Archery
This is the only news report I could find on the killing of two innocent Montana wolves by bow hunters this weekend. Don’t you just love the word “harvest” as if they are digging up potatoes? Euphemisms to hide the UGLY truth about what this “hunt” is all about. Thrill Killing!!
Archery season nets 2 wolves in first weekend

“Naturally, hunters are eager to be seen as conservationists. But true conservation involves more than preserving areas of habitat to be used as outdoor shooting galleries. And, true conservation involves more than creating humongous deer and elk herds. Shooting coyotes, cougars, wolves, foxes, bears, and other predators – whether for amusement or to increase game populations – cannot and will not qualify as conservation.”
