COURTESY OF PREDATOR DEFENSE - WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE VICTIM COYOTE, AND WHO TO CALL TO EXPRESS YOUR ZERO TOLERANCE OF PAYING THE SALARY OF EVIL TRAPPER OLSON !!!
This week we made the painful discovery of a USDA Wildlife Services trapper named Jamie Olson, who set his dogs upon—and, let them tear apart—a live coyote already caught in a trap. He posted graphic photos of this intentional infliction of suffering on his Facebook and Twitter accounts (now disabled), along with other heinous acts of animal cruelty he committed.

This trapper is still employed by Wildlife Services in the state of Wyoming. He also organizes predator killing contests in many western states, including one scheduled for Nov. 8-10 in Billings, MT, called the Montana Coyote Classic, which was thankfully and coincidentally(?) just cancelled. Olson's actions have sparked public outrage. Read more about him, Wildlife Services, and the agency's barbaric methods of lethal predator control in the "Sacramento Bee" at http://www.sacbee.com/2012/11/02/4956169/us-wildlife-workers-online-photos.html#storylink=misearch

We must put an end to your tax dollars being used to torture wild animals. Join us as we redouble our efforts to ask for Congressional oversight hearings on the USDA's Wildlife Services agency. Call or write both the chair of the committee involved, Republican Representative Darrell Issa (CA-49), and the ranking committee member, Democratic Representative Elijah Cummings (MD-07), and urge them for oversight hearings:

Committee on Oversight and Government Reform
