I come from Australia so I am not familiar with the reasons/excuses these evil people use for maiming, torturing, and killing wildlife. I'm guessing it's ignorance and lack of empathy as to why they think it is fine to do this, but it really just makes the USA look like a bunch of rednecks to the world. Obviously I know that isn't the case of course, hopefully they are the minority. What's with killing wolves in particular? You guys are so lucky to have such beautiful animals in your...

Obviously I know that isn't the case of course, hopefully they are the minority. What's with killing wolves in particular? You guys are so lucky to have such beautiful animals in your country, and they are often used as a symbol of the USA and seen in many artforms, music, and mediums as if they hold significance in the country. This is why I was confused and shocked that these people are allowed to commit such cruel, backward, and inhumane acts. Aren't wolves protected? We have a similar problem with some rednecks shooting our kangaroos near farms, and they use the excuse that the roos eat their grazing paddocks/pastures whatever they're called-its b.s of course.

whoops, went over the word limit above. Anyway, the idiots that kill kangaroos are trained to shoot them in such a spot to make death instantaneous-not that this makes any better to kill them, but at least they are not maimed and lying tortured in agony for hours like the animals caught in antiquated traps. Luckily they are also in healthy numbers and not close to being endangered either, which I believe wolves are. I'm appealing to the USA government's vanity now in posting this-do you...

I'm appealing to the USA government's vanity now in posting this-do you really want the rest of the world to see you as people who act like this? You appear to have your flag brandished everywhere, even on cleaners uniforms, so you are a proud nation. Don't let this be your downfall. Outlaw and police it now and bring your country into the 21st century. Would you do this to your child or pet dog? Why do it to native, endangered animals?

I THINK IT'S SENSELESS FOR ANY ANIMAL TO GO THROUGH ANY TYPE OF TORTURE.

LIXUMANOS É QUE SENTEM PRAZER NISSO, RAÇA SEM RESPEITO, NEM VOU DIZER QUE FOI O PIOR ERRO QUE DEUS COMENTEU OS CRIANDO, HAJA VISTO QUE NEM TODOS NASCERAM DO CRIADOR, DIGO "DE DEUS" E SIM DO DEMÔNIO, SÓ QUEM NÃO RESPEITA DEUS EM SUA MAIS PURA E SUBLIME CRIAÇÃO "OS ANIMAIS", QUE A TODO MOMENTO NOS DÃO PROVAS QUE SÃO SERES DIVINOS, NÃO PODE SER TIDO COMO FILHO DE DEUS!

All though I love wolves & am 100%% opposed to the Hunting & trapping of this Beautiful, Majestic animalT I did not join the Groupe or Cause to Stop all Trapping in america because I do not totally oppose Trapping Someone added me to this Cause Group without my Permission & so far I haven't figured out how to remove this cause from my list of cause's!

If you don't "totally" oppose trapping, then what kind of opposition do you have? Just curious.

What is the point of these USELESS pledges besides hijacking activists into running on a useless treadmill instead of "signing" genuine, productive petitions? My "favorite" is when a person pledges to "sign" a petition or "likes" a petition on Facebook, but then I check the petition, and it turnes out that they did not "sign".

I saw a picture of a cat with it's foot in a trap.Why wasn't it removed or is taking a picture so important? Also the great majestic Wolf as some of you call it is a kill for the hell of it preditor just like the coyote.If you don't think so introduce one to your dog.
