UPDATE: First Wolf Slaughtered by Bow in Montana, Ten Wolves Dead In Idaho Hunt….

UPDATE: September 9/7/11

IDFG changed dead wolf numbers from eleven to ten???

===

Well here’s the grim news. Montana FWP is now saying one wolf was killed by a bow-hunter on Sunday, instead of two wolves as had been reported. It’s all just sickening and depressing. Meanwhile over in Idaho,  the death toll for wolves now stands at ten and counting.  How much more carnage before America wakes up and speaks out??

Archery season’s first wolf killed Sunday

Montana’s archery season for wolves opened Saturday, and the following day, the first wolf was killed.

Ron Aasheim, spokesman for Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, said the wolf, a male, was harvested in Stillwater County.

The kill marks the first in the state’s 2011 wolf hunt, which is only the second of its kind to take place. The first occurred in 2009, and both hunts have been surrounded by debate over how many wolves should be killed and whether they should be hunted at all.

This season, hunters are allowed to kill 220 wolves — nearly triple the 2009 quota of 75.

Two Wolves Fall Victim To Cruel “Montana Wolf Archery Season”?? READ UPDATE!!

 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!

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!!

“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.”
