Rather than paying them for injured dogs, these people should be charged with animal cruelty. How are they any different from Michael Vick?

Not that I don't agree, this is horrific, but I wouldn't call the hunters anything close to Vick. Most of the hunters are probably unaware of the populations of the wolves, and might not really know what they're doing. Vick supported and ran an illegal industry that kidnaps/procures dogs, tortures them until they're angry and then watch them kill each other for fun. Many of these hunters probably think they're providing a service to local farmers with live stock that can be picked off by...

Many of these hunters probably think they're providing a service to local farmers with live stock that can be picked off by wolves. And if the wolves were over populated it would make sense for a farming state to hunt them, but they're not, they're under populated which is why I signed this. So both are bad, but I would say they are vastly different, and vastly better than Vick. But that's just my opinion.

YOU ARE RIGHT ON THE MONEY THERE, ROBERT MENARD!!! They should all be charged with animal cruelty and trapped in steel jaws so the wolves can eat THEM!! I don't think wolves eat shit though. Yeah, and Michael Vick is another piece of shit!!!!!!! All these so called "hunters" are just cowards. They are so jealous of wolves because wolves are better looking, more athletic, stronger, and they actually HAVE A PURPOSE IN LIFE!!!!! Oh and Laura De Bruin.....don't voice your IGNORANT OPINION. We have enough STUPID to contend with!!!!

Laura you're very right a lot of people are uneducated about it, or were given false information and don't know it. While there are many people who do it for sport, and fun (aka people like or worse than Mike Vic- youd be surprised the TERRIBLE things I've heard pro-wolf hunters say about the thrill they get from torturing the poor wolves </3 ), our biggest problem when it comes to saving the wolves is educating the public about it.

As a Native American these wolves are my brothers and sisters, this is murder to me, I see NO justification for any hunt. Are you aloud to hunt you’re family members, or if you shoot them would you be charged with murder? So to you will be judged by the Creator

The reason they are doing this is because they were on the endanged list and have now become over populated... Now the wolves have almost drivin their prey to extinction... there has to be some kind of population control. Please use your common sense.

You know nothing, Just because the wolves came off the endangers list doesn’t mean there’s too many so yes lets use common sense something this Govener Never had He was kick out of college for Stealing, and continues his Dishonesty in office today. He's forsale.
End animal abuse

Let’s just stop the hate on all helpless animals. Those that need to do that should be hunting and trapping each other, more sport in it and that would require consent.

I do not like being lied to. The FAQ put out by the Wisconsin DNR says at the top of page 3: "Hunting wolves with dogs and training dogs to pursue wolves is not currently allowed."
http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/hunt/documents/wolffaq.pdf

WolfWalther.org reports that this is one of the components of the law: "Fees collected will be used to reimburse livestock and dog owners who suffer depredation from wolves, including dogs in the act of training/hunting game (except wolf)". This means you don't get reimbursed if you are hunting wolves.

While I can appreciate you doing some research, you have it all wrong. If you re-read the title you can see it says "Wisconsin WILL" as in if by next hunting season we don't do something to stop this that it WILL happen, not is happening or has happened (although it has happened in the recent past).

Not everyone has all of the facts about what is going on because 1) this is a law that has been in affect for less than 6 months 2) most people are generally uneducated about the subject, and...

Not everyone has all of the facts about what is going on because 1) this is a law that has been in affect for less than 6 months 2) most people are generally uneducated about the subject, and 3) DNR probably isn't going to be itching to advertise these outrageous things when in less than a month it may be made illegal again. Not to mention I am sure that are taking precaution because of the law suit that was filed against them for allowing dogs to hunt wolves back in August of 2012 which is what sparked the September 2012 temporary injunction that was recently lifted earlier this month. Also the link your provided pre-dates Section 2B1. I am terribly sorry if you feel you were lied to, I assure you that you were not! If you would like some more resources please contact me and I would be happy to give them to you! Thank you for taking interest in my cause and in the petition and I hope this has not negatively affected your opinion of our fight for the wolves.

Just to give you and idea of the time line of events...

A law suit was filed against Wisconsin for allowing dog to hunt wolves in August of 2012.

In September of 2012 Judge Anderson set a temporary injunction that basically stated while hunting wolves with dogs was legal, training them to do so was illegal (nifty little loop hole there)

Early 2013 Judge Anderson was forced to lift the injunction and now the legal hunting of wolves with dogs that are now allowed to be trained to do so...

Early 2013 Judge Anderson was forced to lift the injunction and now the legal hunting of wolves with dogs that are now allowed to be trained to do so doesn't take affect until next hunting season or perhaps as late as 2014.

At the end of this month a hearing will be held on whether or not to nullify Section 2.B.1. if this happens then it will again be illegal to hunt wolves with dogs.

I think you need to re-word this.
" we had a pro-wolf activist come on here" PRO - means for so what you wrote is We had a FOR-WOLF ACTIVIST.. I think you meant a activist who is for hunting wolves - not saving wolves.
Sorry but I found it confusing.. if your for something that is good they were an activist for killing wolves.

Blame our tea party Gov. Scott Walker. He put a business woman who knows nothing about the environment or animals in charge of the DNR. All she knows about animals is hunting them down. Most Wisconsinites deplore this but the hunters and trappers have a powerful lobby and the support of the NRA.
