Mankind is sickening when it kills an animal and then boasts about it by having a photo taken of himself smiling next to the dead animal. We are supposed to be guardians of the earth - not killers of the earth. Why do people have to kill wildlife - I will never understand it because I have too much empathy for animals.

They do it because they are cowards and having a gun or a trap and causing pain and suffering to defenseless animals makes them feel big. They do it under the guise of thinning the herds. That's BS in my book. The herds thinned themselves before man was around and they can still do it. If the reasoning is that they will starve to death, then lets not buy bullets or traps, lets buy food for the animals.

well said...it says everything about what kind of person they are and that is the kind of person I want to stay far away from. It is the kind of person who has no place in our society. Anyone who finds joy in killing a beautiful innocent animal is someone who has no soul....that being said I guess we know where they are going to end up one day! Too bad it wont be in time to save all the beautiful animals they so happily killed!

I agree totally with what you wrote. . . . .too bad so many injustices have to be done to innocent animals in the meantime. It's got to stop.

I agree. . . . . there needs to be more compassion on Mother Earth toward all her creatures. We are supposed to be guardians of animals - not killers of animals.

How on earth can "wildlife management" allow this slaughter to happen. Can anyone in their right minds justify these numbers? It is just mass murder, genocide - call it what you want, it is a declaration of total war against animals who harm NO ONE and have very right to a full and happy life. If this is what happens in a economic downturn, god help the animals when the economy rallies. How many hungry children could have been fed, how many homeless people could have had a roof over their...

How many hungry children could have been fed, how many homeless people could have had a roof over their heads, how many sick people could have got treatment? Where the fuck are their priorities. It all seems to end once these bastards get elected to public office. Then all bets are off. They will promise anything to anybody to get their fat asses into a cosy chair in Washington and then sit back and act like god.

I really hope there is retribution. I hope these people come back as the tortured victims they hurt in this life. One feels so helpless against all this evil. What I hate is the loneliness of these animals, whilst they are suffering, when they should be with their herd or pack or family, experiencing affection, exercising and leading the life God intended.

Of all the things we spend tax dollars on, this, and the military-industrial complex (Eisenhower's phrase) are the worst. Especially when we have other ways of insuring food safety.

That is why God made man dead last and the animals first. Somehow I prefer the animals. Because kill do survive man doesn't. We have a bear and deer problem in NJ but I believe in birth control instead of bullets and i'm against traps. WE are suppose to respect wildlife not abuse it. God made them also.

***"besides if your going to kill something, don't dishonor yourself by using traps and guns. face what your going to kill like the sick person you are." but thats probably never going to happen.

Why isn't all the major news programs talking or investigating this information? Do they know about this issue? Emails to them ASAP. Thinking of; 20/20, Dateline, Nightline, 60 minutes, Good Morning America etc.

get your priorities straight. our elderly don't deserve to starve or live in poverty. period. why can't we put the money where it's needed, since it's OUR money. i'm sick of seeing starving elderly, children, veterans, while the politicians wallets and bellies get fatter.

As if the slaughter & torture of wolves was not bad enough. What is the- hell-point of this? I used to believe in Obama- NO more- the United States deserves no respect now. The government does NOTHING about global warming & now this- what example is this setting for the rest of world? Answer- no e- US is a JOKE. NO LEADER.

Debbie, I hate to disappoint you, But Obama can do no more than what the house and senate pass and send on to him. Let them send him a bill to stop trapping, THEN blame him if he doesn't sign it. But trapping has been going on sense this country was founded. It is a fact much of the exploration of America was done by trappers. But those days are long gone. And trapping should end now!

Then the US gov't set up is retarded. Surely, Obama is aware of what is going on, & the fact that it continues- is ridiculous. he is the president- is he not. Then, the house & senate, need a bloody wake up call. I understand- trapping in our history but those days are gone. No animal should suffer such agonizing torture- EVER. Past or present. Wolves will become extinct. The Canadian gov't gave the Americans wolves, years ago for Yellowstone. What a mistake that was. A PILE of mountain...

A PILE of mountain lions......absolute DISGUST for U.S-I don't care who is or not is responsible. A bunch of ignorant REDNECKS in the "house" & " senate". Rednecks is not a nice word- but that is even KIND for this. HORRIFIC, APPALLING, DISGUSTING, COWARDLY, INHUMANE, SADISTIC, DEMENTED, all people involved in all of these horrific acts to wildlife- will ALL ROT IN HELL. No place in heaven for you. Blame can NOT be deflected from who the hell ever to who-ever. Sorry-NO GO. Politicians are responsible- whatever.

Marsha- I wish- I could answer that sweetie- I have asked- same question, maybe someone else can. Gov't pays (hunters-trappers )money. Every person has fur on "Canada Goose" jackets- maybe they buy it? Don't know- there could be no answer to this horrificy. As long as gov't pays- they will slaughter & torture. I can't answer- sorry . I guess-Americans- hunt deer's, bears, elk -whatever moves. I guess....it cuts into their quota. People hate wolves. To me-they are sacred. Indian people- would...

It's gotta be money, ignorance, & the fact, that these animals cut into the numbers of the same animals- they hunt. They slaughter owls, just about any wildlife that moves. There will be NOTHING left. As if global warming is not bad enough on the depletion of animals. The government should give us a damn explanation of this !!!!!!! REDNECKS who enjoy sadistically, barbarically torturing animals cause it makes them feel superior- it is absolutely sick. Wolves hunt to feed their young &...

I find it hard to believe that America, a so called civilised nation, still allows this senseless killing to continue. Does no-one in Government feel any responsibility for these crimes against animals?

I agree, people blame Obama for everything. If they were informed they would know that he is stopped at every step he tries to take. I also don't agree with everything he has done, but think how much worse it would be if Richie Rich Romney had gotten into that office. I shudder to think.
