Wolf Torture and Execution Continues in the Northern Rockies: Sample Letter

March 30, 2012

BACKGROUND BY MARC BEKOFF

Wolves remain in the crosshairs and the teeth of leghold traps in the Northern Rockies (see and). Let me say upfront that I apologize for posting this brief alert, but it’s essential that people who don’t know about what’s happening learn about the barbaric treatment of wolves, and also for the skeptics to see it up close and personal if they can stand it.

You can read about the story of a trapped and tortured wolf in a short essay in Earth Island Journal. It contains graphic language and pictures. A man who calls himself Pinching, who did the dirty deed, claimed the wolf will “make me a good wall hanger.” Another person commented, “That’s a dandy! Keep at it.” This story and the posted comments say a lot about the enormous variation in human attitudes toward other animals and remains a topic of interest to those who study this aspect of human behavior.

I hope this story will get people who are indifferent to, or ignorant of, what’s really happening to take action to stop such heinous behavior. No living being deserves to be treated this way.

The teaser image of “Pinching” and the wolf he trapped is here.

SAMPLE LETTER

To Whom It Concerns,

It has come to my attention that, in efforts to curtail population, wolves are being drastically hunted and barbarically slaughtered.

This disregard of your most vulnerable group of beings is unacceptable, and until this barbarism is appropriately addressed including a mandatory ban of such, I will boycott. Indeed, I and others will collectively voice condemnation of your state resulting in the sacrifice of vital tourism and commerce profits.

Please use your influence to act responsibly and ethically and choose to protect, rather than sanction harm, to wolves.

I know your time is limited and I thank you for your attention.

the earth was young,
a new planet born,
new lives, begun.
so much hope,
now so much
confusion,
the creator sits,
asking
is it all an
illusion

    SENT E-MAILS. WHY DO THE AMERICANS WANT TO CAUSE SUCH SUFFERING TO THIS BEAUTIFUL ANIMAL. IT’S THEIR WORLD TOO . THE HUMAN BEING DOES NOT OWN THIS PLANET, WHY DO THEY ACT LIKE THEY DO. WOLVES HAVE AS MUCH RIGHT AS ANY PERSON TO LIVE THEIR LIFE IN PEACE.

    To Whom The Issue Concerns,

    All this abuse to our wildlife is dispicable! The wildlife on this earth is here living with us on this planet for a reason. And it isn’t to hunt them down, torture or kill them in attempt to protect live stock. They are doing the only thing they know and that is to survive.

    I too wish there was a law to ban this kind of hatred toward our wildlife. I will type, sign or donate what I can to help this disgrace to these animals and be their voice to stop whoever from doing this hatefulness.

    Graciously, Mrs. Showalter

    Why do stupid people keep killing the wolves. I am so sick of these people who trap them in painful traps or shoot them. Hunters will go anywhere just to get their sick enjoyment out of killing them. Actually, they get their sick enjoyment out of killing any wildlife. Lets put pull all Hunters together and tie them to a tree. If the wolves don’t eat them we will find other things to get them back for the damage they do.. Sorry this is a angry comment. I am just so sick off it.
