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. If more people had REAL facts instead of the twisted things...

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

Look everyone as long as we want to have a civilization it is necessary to control the population of some carnivorous species. to protect live stock, and to prevent the spread of disease Hydrophobia is no joke. look it up or watch a video on it. they had to do this with coyote in my area when I was young. how many of you that commented here would be alright with your child or grandchild being snatched from your yard by a wolf or coyote? for each of you it would only take one instance and you...

Dear Governor Ross,
I am writing you because of DNR Act 169 Section 2B1, which would allow payment to a hunter for the loss of a dog hunting or tracking a wolf.

First, let me assure you that I know that currently Wisconsin does not allow dogs to be used in hunting, but that, mark my words, will change by your next hunting season.

I would address this problem in a much different way. I believe DNA Act 169 Section 2 B 1 is promoting Dog Fighting and Animal abuse.

Do you not have animal abuse laws? Is not dog fighting against the law in Wisconsin?

When you set a dog on a trail to track it is going to catch up with what it is tracking, the animal being tracked will fight to protect it self. Thus a Dog fight. Is this not animal abuse? No matter what animal is hurt, or killed each will suffer injury and pain.

If you Pay the owner of the dog for injury or loss you are in violation of your own laws on promoting a dog fight. You will be promoting animal abuse in the same manor, by rewarding the perpetrator.

Does your laws state the animal must only be a domesticated animal? An Animal is an Animal, and deserves protection under the law.

Please do all you can to STOP this from becoming a law in the Great State of Wisconsin.

This is America? OMG. One thinks one has heard the worst, and then another comes along. The brutality, inhumanity, ignorance, GREED of Wisconsin! I never heard anything so "good ole boy," backwoods, as this. What care the state of Wisconsin for ANY animal. To *torture & kill wolves...when the brutal killing is not enough. And now the dogs. A dog attack on wolves is NOT a dog fight even though the wolf is secured by a trap with jeering, cheering, drunken "he-men" watching the horror...

I'm sooo totally with you on this one Ronnie. It's nothing but a well planned out show of sheer AGONY, TORTURE, & BRUTALITY towards these beautiful defenceless creatures. As well as the MONSTROUS treatment of the dogs who've been no doubt BRUTALLY trained, with having no choice in the rein of INSANITY!!!!!!!

Please stop unnecessary ( hunting shooting &fishing ) there are also enough humans to offer themselves INSTEAD of Animal experimentation . E.g. Be careful where your gifted money goes to!! Be A Vegan !! Or at least a vegetarian ... N.B. If I was in U.S. right now.I would be ""wolfing" for those lovely creatures and the Dogs ....Thank.you
