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?

Its barbaric and disgusting. People need to get an education and get real jobs instead if raping the earth. No one needs to profit from the fur trade.

ALL OF THESE ANIMALS HAVE A RIGHT TO BE ON THIS EARTH & WHEN THEY ARE USED FOR FOOD ONLY THEN THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO DIE HUMANELY!!!! I hate all of you people who treat GOD'S CREATION'S TREACHOUSLY. I SIGN THIS WHOLE HEARTEDLY FROM DEEP WITHIN MY HEART. These animals are
created like like us humans with FLESH & BLOOD THEY FEEL PAIN AS WE DO IN THEIR BODIES & MIND they are THE SAME SUBSTANCE WE ARE......you who are cruelly & treachously abusing these animals WELL ONE DAY PAY & DON'T THINK YOU WON'T - YOU WILL !!!!!

when I look at my dog I see a wolf. She is a Samoyed. These animals should not be shot or hunted or trapped. We need to remove the market for the hides and other things. Killing a wolf is reprehensible and should be illegal.
