Idaho: No Animals Used as Live Bait

Idaho Senate Bill S1305 passed committee and will go to the Senate for a vote as early February 29, 2012.  This bill allows for slaughter of wolves found molesting livestock by any means.  It specifically allows for baiting wolves with live animals.  State Senator Jeff Siddoway said “even dogs” could be used as bait.

Using any sentient being as bait to kill another is cruel and inhumane.  It causes undue stress to the bait animal and puts them in harms way to be killed by wolves before a gunman kills the wolf.

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO SIGN

We need to go all out on this Warriors and get behind this petition. 5000 signatures are needed and I know we can do it.

Friends of the Clearwater, NIWA, Wolf Warriors and Howling for Justice are adamantly supporting this petition. The vote in the Idaho Senate can come as early as next week and then it’s on to the House. If  it’s voted out of the Idaho House I  have no doubt Governor Otter would sign it. If this bill becomes law it would decimate the already beleaguered Idaho wolves.

Remember what this bill would allow:

“The bill would let livestock owners whose animals are molested by wolves shoot the wolves from motorized vehicles, powered parachutes, helicopters or fixed-wing planes, by night or day, using rifles, pistols, shotguns, or crossbows, night scopes, electronic calls, and traps with live bait.”

Let’s get our signing fingers out for the wolves and achieve the 5000 signatures!!  Share this with everyone you know!!

The wolf haters might have gone too far this time. In their eagerness to slaughter wolves it could have the opposite effect and put wolves back under the protection of the ESA. Wouldn’t that be the ultimate irony?

For the wolves, For the wild ones,

Nabeki

Live Bait Okay to Kill Idaho Wolves

  • by
  • February 24, 2012
  • 9:00 pm
  • Idaho State Senator Jeff Siddoway introduced bill S1305 into the statehouse this week.  The bill will allow slaughter of wolves found molesting livestock, by any means.  This includes shooting wolves from motorized vehicles, powered parachutes, helicopters or fixed-wing planes.  Rifles, pistols, shotguns, crossbows, night scopes, electronic calls — day or night.
  • In Idaho, livestock consists of mainly sheep and cattle. The bill specifically includes the use of live bait. It’s not just wolves in Idaho that are in danger; any living creature could become bait if bill S1305is passed.

    • Yes Debra…this petition could be the life blood of the wolves in Idaho. There is no limit to the amount of signatures wolf advocates could gather. This could be Idaho’s Waterloo on “wolf management”, in their hatefulness, they went too far and shot themselves in the foot. People are outraged.

  4. This is past the point of barbaric. They are lower than the first inkling of human life. These people are frightingly insane. If they happened onto a studio set where they were filming a horror film with the likes of blood thirsty ghouls, you wouldn’t be able to tell which was which, or who was who. They are not only against God obviously, but they are against all that is good. They lie, they are greedy, and they need to be locked up not only for the safety of wildlife, but also for the simple safety of human beings.

    • Born and raised in Idaho. Left a long time ago. You got it right Anne. It is a scary place for animals and….children. These are people who just can’t grow up. They let the Devil slip in decades ago and you now see what happens. At least now the world sees it. Could be a Blessing in disguise. Let’s Hope and Pray and Sign the Petition. Don’t wait there isn’t much time.

    • I agree Anne…now everyone can see how crazy these people are. Their hatred of wolves knows no bounds, especially when wolves kill so few livestock. At least the country and the world are seeing what is in the hearts of these people.

  6. What I am about to share is all true. Being born and raised in Idaho was very traumatic. And I share this with many who are rasied in Idaho. My pets were tortured and murdered. Some I was forced to eat for dinner. I still and always will suffer from the traumas of home. I will never stop crying and the pain is as real today as it was then. I spent over 17 years in therapy and still suffer. Sign this petition because nothing has changed in over 50 years. When a person or peoples can’t control themselves then, someone has to do it for them. Send Idahoan’s a message that civilized people will not allow them to continue to treat animals and children like this anymore. The world is watching and protecting the most vulnerable in Idaho. Please sign and share this petition with everyone. Boycott all Idaho products and Pray for this bill to fail. Thankyou.

    • OMG Debra, forced to to eat your pets for dinner??? I’m so sorry you had to go through that. Just horrific. I know how hard it was to share that with us. Thank you for having the courage to speak out. I completely understand what you are saying. Most Americans have no idea the mentality in the wolf states. I live in the Northern Rockies and have experienced it first hand.

  9. I question the mentality of the hunters of Idaho to allow dogs/animals as live bait. Is it just the cruelty to animals that they enjoy so much. Is it not enough how they are slaughtering the wolves in inhumane ways? They are out of control as well as the Governor. I am sure Idaho has a high unemployment rate as the rest of the US does. $22,000 spent by Fish and Wildlife to hunt down 14 wolves. They are a disgrace!!!

  17. My computer would not allow me to sign the petition. It aborted the action. As horrified as I am that the bill will allow live bait, I am equally horrified that it allows the private use of helicopters and airplanes to gun down wolves. This hasn’t been mentioned much if at all in the comments. To me that seems like a clear violation of the federal Airborne Hunting Act.

  23. For the past 250 + years the BLM ans US Governmant has brutally slaughtered pedratory animals soley for financial gain as well as sport. It is a cruel and ignorant stance to continue to lobby for killing of these maginificent creatures GOD has put on our Earth. It is distressing for me to continue to watch ignorance, fear and hate dictate the existance of these animals.
