We hunt for meat to feed our families, we don't hunt for the SPORT of killing dogs or ANY other animal. To arbitrarily just kill a living breathing animal without justification is wrong on Every Level. Stop the slaughter Now.
Well said Bernie!! If I were these men, I would be embrassed as well as their loved ones should be!
I don't have a problem with "Hunting to put food on the table to feed your families". In fact I will say I like to eat deer meat if it's cooked right. But the so called "Hunters" that were pictured above and all the killing of these wolves were way too much. And these type of people just outright murdered those wolves. So I'll have to agree with you all hunters "DO NOT" fit into that category. Something needs to be done to stop these guys from doing this type and kind of killing. ...

Because it's not being fair to other "Responsible Hunters". It breaks my heart to see people being so cruel to animals, and this is what these so called men did. Cruelty to those wolves.
Although I don't have tremendous sympathy for hunters (the reason being, that, here in France, I am mostly confronted to trigger-happy-freezer-filling drungoes...), you sound like a decent bloke, Bernie. Thanks for this courageous stand!
Thank you for your response, however, killing for the sake of killing is sick. It appears from a mind of control and hatred. God will repay those who kill just for that thrill.
Pack culling is one thing - done i on the name of preventing starvation in trying winter months. But this is simply gratuitous violence and torture. And I'm a Republican!
Republicans are people, too. I can't even look at this. There's been some tragic things happening in Minnesota. I love, love, shivers up my spine love wolves.
Cathy York ET al, I too disagree with an and all killing of Wolves and animals for sport period. But tO label hunters as Neanderthal or mentally is wrong as well. Many of today's hunters are highly paid execs, all the way down the line to everyday laborers and out of work people trying to survive. Please keep the character assassination out of this because that language brings us down to the level of killing animals for no reason. Thank you .
One more comment on this subject. I have been a hunter most of my life and while I enjoy hunting I never believed in nor participated in hunting for the sport of it only. As stated before, hunters are not bad people, nor are they criminals nor stupid people. But stupid people breed and do stupid thing things. Please pay attention to what you do and don't kill just for the sake of killing. Animals were put here by God for a purpose lets not do things that make us out to be cruel people. Thank you . Soap box closed for now ...
I'd like to take the guns and traps away from those hunters and put them in a situation where they had to defend themselves against the wolf. That seems fair. Unbelievable. I've never understood "hunting" and never will. Absolutely horrific. Somedays I am so embarrassed to be human. Pathetic.
I guess I have an emotional reaction to animals suffering. If you are going to kill it - do it swiftly. I can not tolerate seeing pics of these guys sitting there mugging for the camera while the poor animal is in pain caught in a steel trap or they are stepping on the animal. There is absolutely no need for this. I do know there are circumstances and situations and a pic doesn't tell all the truth. I appreciate your comments and know there are certain circumstances where culling is (sometimes) necessary for balance.
OMG anyone with a heart ..this pic. Of this Beautiful animal shot and left to die such a horrible painful death ..OMG this has to STOP AND NOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you draft a strongly worded (yet respectful!) letter of protest, you can copy & paste it on each site. Takes only a few minutes to reach them ALL! I have yet to hear back form any of them and I've been emailing for a month! They won;'t wear me down. As long as they're gassing, shooting, trapping and butchering OUR wildlife, I'm NOT backing down! They might as well get used to me......
You GO girl!!! Good for you!
For every single one of US who post comments, there should be TEN letters/photos being sent off to the White House! A good start is the state Governors of Wisconsin, Montana, Idaho & Alaska for they slaughter the highest number of wolves and young nursing pups still in their dens!
May God be with these amazing creatures and guide us all to protect them, Amen.
My bad, although Wisconsin has wolf kills too, WYOMING is (by far) slaughtering far more!
Als je zo toch omgaat met dieren..wat betekent het mens zijn dan?
It's seems to be the same fat f#*%ing white guys doing these incredibly sick acts. Maybe a few gut shots for them! Humanity my ass.
Thats profiling....I am a fat white guy and I haven't shot a gun in about 30 years.....and would never torture any animal
Oh I know you wouldn't but jeez the photos of these grinning idiots with their 'trophies' - gack! Besides, you're not fat!
