think of the scene in 50 years time...a museum with a magnificent stuffed wolf and all the kids gathered round looking admiringly and asking the curator " if they ran free in america years ago, why don't we have them now?" what's the curator going to answer? something like "you were cheated out of the pleasure of seeing them alive by money hungry ranchers who wouldn't share their land with something that didn't make them money, trigger happy, inbred rednecks with more guns than IQ and bought...

I'm not American but I completely agree with you. It's sad that we have been conned into letting low life scum like them run things. It's time we pushed them back where they belong, in the gutter. I'm Canadian & love our wildlife.

I am Canadian, but feel that I am part of this. We are all connected, to each other and to the animals of this World. Wolves are an integral and important part of the environment.

I'm not in the USA, but I have posted to my timeline & friends. We can still send emails, & use the tourist ban as a threat. I hope this helps, a worldwide petition would have been good, no one likes to see the world watching while they do something as inhuman as this slaughter will be if it goes ahead.

Thanks Kadi! There actually is a world wide petition right here: http://www.causes.com/actions/1737407-stop-the-slaughter-of-wolves-in-michigan-before-it-starts

The only problem is that MI doesn't "accept" online petitions, but that doesn't mean we can't still voice our opinions. On March 24thth I will be providing a link to a pdf file of the petition so that anyone can send it out to whom ever they want. The hearing is on the 26th so I'm hoping to make an impression before they make the final decision :)

Tell them also to boycott the western states. Europeons love to take their six weeks and travel western USA. NO. Write and tell those tourism folks in each state you will not be going to Yellowstone, Glacier, Jackson Hole, etc. Nothing in Idaho, Washington State, Alaska wyoming and now Michigan.

That is a great idea, Karr...the tourists are helping our economy and that is great - but when we are not doing the right thing - protecting our environment and the animals that inhabit the beautiful land that still exists - we need we need to boycott certain vacation spots. That might work!

I began the boycott of MI when I heard that the.
state House and Senate passed that wasteful.
piece of legislation, and wrote to Gov. Snyder
that Michigan will be boycotted until our wolves.
are left alone.
I'm also boycotting some of its products because of.
its ties to the GMO syndicate, the Monsanto "mob".
Even though I've taken action in recent months,
I will take action again on this issue.

Protect America's Wolves, It's a pleasure.
Recently, I came across a poll on the issue and
the vast majorirty of folks in MI are on our side
and strongly AGAINST any hunting of our precious pooches.
Nevertheless, our noble battle continues.
We'll need more like-minded warriors in the
Northern Rockies and Upper Plains region to
rise up in rebellion and fight the glorious fight against
the "anti-wildlife/anti environment" dictatorship.

When we do not have Love into our hearts it is very difficult to understand...When people are self-centered, selfish, narcissistic, they believe they can KILL ANIMALS, OR PEOPLE, DESTROY THE EARTH, AND ACT LIKE gods! Then with their double moral say That its to balance the ecosystems!
Foul, Mr. Governor Snyder...because the Only God will punish your actions! 7 times 7 for what you do wrong...

I've contacted the governor on his Facebook page with a link to the pledge inviting him to take it on behalf of the wolves. Hopefully he will take notice.

I took action and wrote to Michigan's DNR.
Here's what I wrote:

As a citizen of the United States, I'm writing to strongly oppose any wolf hunting.

Please be forewarned that if Gov. Snyder signs this.
wasteful anti-wolf legislation, against the will of the vast majority,
We, The People, shall resort to severe economic sanctions against.
Michigan by boycotting all products that come from your state,
as well as tourist travels to Michigan....
This will also mean that I will not visit, nor do business with your state.
Nor shall I do business with ANY state that has hostilities.
towards wolves and other wildlife, Native Americans,
and other like-minded animal lovers worldwide.
I'm already boycotting some of your products that come.
from Michigan, on account of these companies' ties.
to the criminal bio-tech GMO syndicate, the Monsanto Mafia.
We're not in the 19th Century anymore and.
wasting our tax dollars just to kill wolves and other.
wildlife, is a grave mistake, and in time, it will result.
in a major politcal backlash, when We, The People,
rise up in a major rebellion, and throw all the.
anti-wolf/anti-wildlife/anti-envrionment politicians
out of office.
Our tax dollars would've been better invested in.
developing clean renewable energy, creating new jobs,
improving education, and protecting the waters and air...
NOT to pander to a mere handful of ignorant, gun-totin', redneck.
neanderthals with their Old West "lynch-mob" mentality,
still stuck with the old myths and fairy tales of.
"Little Red Riding Hood" and outdated supertitions.
that go back to the Dark Ages, when wolves are, in fact,
Nature's first canines, and they've been around long.
before man even existed, and the Creator put them here for a reason,
to keep sick and weak game in check, and the meat of their prey.
is never wasted, as the packs take their food to their.
dens and feed their young, like any other family would.
Cattle ranchers and hunters who say that wolves kill for sport,
are lying, plain and simple, just to maintain the status quo.
of ignorance and ruthless hostility of the ancient 19th Century,
and satisfy their own arrogance, selfishness, and greed,
with their "the heck with everybody else" and "I don't care" attitudes.
And I will not associate myself with a backwards-minded culture with a self-centered,
stuck-up, and mean-spirited attitude that has no place anywhere in.
the modern 21st Century.
This is 2013 A.D., not 1848.
Remember this Golden Rule..
What Goes Around, Comes Around...
Two, To A Thousand-Fold..
Those who inflict pain upon those.
who have no voice, shall suffer the same pain,
Two, To A Thousand-Fold...
Call it a prophecy...
Call it a curse...
Call it karma....
As the proverbial saying goes:

Speaking as an American whose best friend is a Wolf, I am appalled by the State of Michigan for allowing wolves to be hunted. It is barbaric. I am glad I am an Arkansan. My state of Arkansas does not permit wolf hunting.
