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...

I come from Australia so I am not familiar with the reasons/excuses these evil people use for maiming, torturing, and killing wildlife.

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?

trapping is a very cruel inhumane thing to do and is totally not needed... trap a few " hunters " and see how they might feel.

How some people treat animals, and the intentional cruelty, pain and suffering which they make animals endure makes me dispair of the human race

I feel a strong kinship with wolves and love their spirit...do you know they mate for life? But trapping any creature and then attacking or hunting it or siccing dogs on it is just evil. Like shooting wolves from a helicopter ...evil.

This is classic psychotic behavior. Killing for the pleasure of experiencing the pain and suffering of your prey is a BIG warning sign that these guys are fully capable of doing the same to humans. It is a firmly defined first step in a life of sociopathic behavior. These.....men ( I use the term loosely)....are a simply a waste of skin and their substantially meaty innards would provide a bountiful feast for many forest creatures.Having said that - Perhaps some day a sociopathic forest...

Pq o homem se despe totalmente de sua humanidade e troca de lugar com os "animais", isto é muito triste.

This utterly despicable behavior must be stopped! Are we civilized or are we barbarians living in the stone age?

Heart breaking that man could cause such suffering to a beautiful animal for pleasure. STOP this mindless killing now.
