    • write Director@blm.gov Bob Abbey
      and Feedback@ios.doi.gov Ken Salazar , what I do & have done is e mail them daily & say how upset & dissatisfied I am with their decisions on the fate of all wild animals, the latest being the wild mustangs & the round ups. They are making decisions about the wolves, taking them off endangered species & the hunters,, crazy as they are go wild.
      I have also called Virgil Moore, & he patronized me as well. Every time I e mail Abbey & Salazar of whom I have no REGARD for, I e mail President Obama. info@barackobama.com
      The gov does & has listened to the cattlemen & ranchers & those lobbyists= money talks about the wolves killing their cows. Now the horses do not have range land to roam due to that & other reasons.
      Google blue moon’s last stand, & calico roundup 2012. This is approved by Bob Abbey & Salazar, & your tax dollars pay for the helicopters that round the horses up. Also go to WILDHORSEEDUCATION & see the slaughter of these animals. We must bombard them daily with messages about their treatment & killings of wild animals.

      • I may be in for a surprise here. I know there are people who comment on HFJ who do not eat beef not because they are vegetarians but because abattoirs are hell. Page after page people at HFJ write about phoning faxing organizing protests. You’re doing all that you can.Though I’m not a U.S. citizen I’ve written letters, another is in the works now, and a brochure. I’ve stood in front of the U.S. Consulate in protest. I’ve faxed. I sign petitions when ever possible. I always write in hard criticisms. I’m usually so hurt and angry it’s a joy to think of things to say. And that’s not a lot. It’s what I can do. By now people who write to this blog know that I am an ethical vegetarian. And I often write long hazy blogs. Some may have read my posts about my beloved wolf bred dog.
        Not long ago I suggested in passing that people at HFJ boycott beef raised in the killer states. The more I thought about it the better the idea seemed. Can this idea work? Don’t buy their meat.You are the cattle ranchers’ slaves if you do.

        I’m not suggesting a new tactic at the expense of personal contact. Phone. Fax. Mail letters. Be on the street with signs. Vigils yes. Eat Chickens. Buy Pacific Ocean fish (the Atlantic’s foul.) Soon enough Tar Sands people will give us oil spills in the Pacific. Pigs. Keep chickens for their eggs. Pancakes. Baked non Idaho potatoes and scramble eggs. Fried onion omelette’s. Omelette’s with green peas in cream sauce. The wolves keep dying. Boycott all the produce you can but don’t be a Montana/Wyoming meat slave.

        Print fliers. Get a back page add in local papers that says if you love wolves don’t buy beef. Or a special trophic cascade top predator full page spread. How many people can each one of you convince not to buy beef unless the rancher’s position is pro wolf? And there are some. What would it take to put out a pro wolf sticker on a supplier’s beef? A no beef pro wolf sticker on your car? On your front door? How many people out there would be willing to do the same? Canvas the ranchers. Keep an online list of ranchers who don’t support wolf slaughter. How much would it cost to take out an advert asking people to boycott beef from Idaho Wyoming Montana till the wolf killing policy ends? or post fliers? or run an add advertising a cattle rancher or farmer who is wolf friendly? I’m suggesting that until the wolves are once again a protected species don’t eat their beef. Whoever loves wolves may well do the same.

  2. I called Virgil Moore, Director of Idaho Fish & Game yesterday. He expects me to believe that there are still 1,500 wolves in Idaho; that there is plenty of good science to prove that they ate 200,000 elk, and that bringing the wolf population down to 25 total animals will be a perfectly sustainable number. By the way, he doesn’t give a hoot if anyone from other places views the handling of wolves as a deterrent to visiting or relocating to the Sandpoint area. When he was done babbling, he actually slammed the phone down, i.e., just hung up on me before I could “thank” him for taking the time to speak with me.

    • What I don’t understand is WHY someone like him (Moore) is in a Director’s position having that kind of attitude?? Also WHY do we have a rancher in charge of the Dept. of Interior??
      Conflicts of interest. Greed, that is what you call it. You wash my back I’ll wash yours (so to speak) it’s all who you know. They are playing with nature & nature is losing. Re-Puke-A-Thugs are killing our environment. And Democrazies too. They seem to be ALL in it for themselves & fuck everything & everyone else.
      This is what happens when you don’t educate people – they vote AGAINST their best interests. And they vote like idiots. jmho

    • Donna…WHAT?? He tried to tell you there were 1500 wolves in Idaho? Unbelievable..there were close to 700 when the hunt started and they’ve killed almost 300 wolves, which would take the population down to 400 and that’s not counting poachers and the Wildlife Service killers. I cannot believe he slammed the phone down on you. How incredibly rude. Well I hope he gets lots more phone calls.

    WISCONSIN STATE ASSEMBLY
    COMMITTEE ON NATURAL RESOURCES
    FEBRUARY 1, 2012
    http://glifwc.org/upload/AB_502_testimony_1_12.pdf

    Wolves are a species of great significance to the Anishinaabe. We understand wolves to be educators, teaching us about hunting and working together in extended family units. Wolves exemplify perseverance, guardianship, intelligence, and wisdom. Moreover, in the Anishinaabe creation story we are taught that Ma’iingan (wolf) is a brother to Original man. The two traveled together throughout the earth naming everything. Once this task was completed, the Creator said that the two had to take separate paths, but indicated that whatever happened to one would happen to the other. Each would be feared, respected, and misunderstood by the people that
    would later join them on earth. Thus, the health and survival of Anishinaabe people is tied to that of Ma’iingan. We can do no less than to fully support efforts to protect, promote acceptance, and ensure healthy and abundant populations of wolves for it is our own future that we are also considering.
    This unique relationship with Ma’iingan brings with it unique responsibility. For the Anishinaabe, the cultural significance of wolves and the responsibility of the tribes to manage the wolf resource in Wisconsin in a culturally appropriate way cannot be overstated. The recovery of Ma’iingan in this State represents a tremendous success that is restoring a cultural as well as an
    ecological cornerstone to the region. This recovery must be protected and preserved to the maximum extent possible.
    The Commission is concerned that many of the provisions of the bill significantly undermine the protection of Ma’iingan within the treaty ceded territories. Although sufficient time has not been provided to perform an in-depth legal analysis of the ramifications of this bill,
    it is clear that the State does not have unfettered discretion to exercise its management prerogatives to the detriment of the tribes’ treaty reserved rights in ways that would be contrary to the requirements of the Lac Courte Oreilles v. Wisconsin case. The State may not legislate away the tribes’ treaty rights; similarly, legislating to the detriment of treaty resources through the legislative establishment of a State wolf hunting and trapping season may not be used to accomplish the same end.For the Commission, the appropriateness of a wolf harvest does not hinge primarily upon some minimum number of animals comprising the current wolf population. More importantly, it hinges on whether wolves are fully restored and will be sufficiently protected to ensure the healthiest and most abundant future for our brother and ourselves. From this perspective, the Commission cannot support the bill. More specific background information and comments on
    various provisions of AB 502 follow.

    Last am I saw an old style television in a dream. Don’t throw away the article was written across its screen. Then a writer I knew turned up at my door and handed me a pen, (also a dream.) I logged on tonight to work on the article. I signed the bison petition at length.

    Wilde’s fairy tales are a sardonic comment on his society. I read in a journal, something written by a professor who probably has no children, or who has one that isn’t allowed animal friends. He stated flatly no child could be affected by Wilde’s fairy tales.

    The Happy Prince was a statue with rubies for eyes. He gave himself away to the poor. His gifts were delivered by a swallow. When he had given away so much of himself that he was no longer beautiful the city fathers melted him down. I wept when he gave away his eyes and again when the swallow died in his service. That early childhood experience will never be forgotten.

    I can’t go down there and beat the bushes for hunters and I don’t know how what I’m doing can make any difference except that work too is a prayer. By work I mean writing. Is doing it enough? Not if it’s advocacy.

    “All trials are trials for one’s life, just as all sentences are sentences of death; and three times have I been tried… Society, as we have constituted it will have no place for me, has none to offer; but nature, whose sweet rains fall on unjust and just alike will have clefts in rocks where I may hide and secret valleys in whose silence I may weep undisturbed. She will hang the night with stars that I may walk abroad in the darkness without stumbling, and send the wind over my footprints so that none may track me to my hurt: she will cleanse me in great waters, and with bitter herbs make me whole.”

  6. Hopefully the wolf will have a chance once we get that idiot out of the White House, but until then, all we can do is fight for them. They do not deserve this…not even the thought of cruelty. They are a very social animal with a very unique family structure. These stupid, ignorant farmers are crying..”boo-hoo, whine…whine…whine…. A wolf at my lamb. First place they either making big bucks off of killing these innocent creatures and torturing them for no reason. (God, what kind of people are these?!!) Or…they do no understand the concept of a family structure working together. A pack can bring down an elderly or sick elk, deer (therefore making that herd stronger) but just one or two wolves left in a pack after the family has been unmercifully slaughtered, then the only recourse they have is to take something easier to survive. Most of the time in the winter …and summer…..wolves live on berries because only about 1 out of every 14 attempts of bringing down something large and fast is successful…….so…which leads the world to believe and know that these murders of the innocent are out for blood money. Feed you families well, but remember, “what goes around, comes around” in one way or another.

Did you ever notice that when society gets stressed(i.e. male population)and feels somehow threatened that they stomp on the rights of others: they argue about the reproductive rights of women and cut funding for special needs programs and of course attack the innocent animals!Humans are truly the most dangerous species on the planet. I pray that in 2012 we(the humans) will somehow become less primitive and become more compassionate and EARTH FRIENDLY.
