Wolves: When Ignorance Begets Ignorance, Begets Ignorance, Begets Ignorance, Begets……

“Wolves need to eat, just like everyone else. Since they are not allowed into supermarkets, they eat whatever they can find, presumably darling puppies included.
They do not eat humans. I know that because J. W. Curran, founding publisher of my first newspaper, The Sault Ste. Marie Daily Star, wrote a book titled Wolves Don’t Bite. In it he offered a $100 reward to the first person who could prove he or she had been attacked by a wolf.”<<<Read More>>>

Washington State Considers Criminalizing Holding Whales and Dolphins in Aquariums

Strategy Follows PETA’s Failed Litigation Campaign to Free Whales from “Bondage”

New York, NY/Washington DC – Washington state Senator Kevin Ranker introduced a bill last week to make it a crime, punishable by up to 6 months in jail and a $100,000 fine, to hold whales, dolphins or porpoises, known as cetaceans, in aquariums.

The following is a statement by Jeff Stier, head of the National Center for Public Policy Research’s Risk Analysis Division:

Radical animal activists don’t believe that humans should own animals or keep them in captivity, even for public educational purposes, even in tremendously large habitats.

When SeaWorld announced last year that it would double the size of its orca tanks to 10 million gallons, PETA attorney Jared Goodman issued a statement opposing the move, saying “A bigger prison is still a prison.” To Mr. Goodman and his anti-aquarium allies, all orcas, even those bred in captivity, should be “reunited” with their families in the open ocean.

PETA’s 2015 legislative approach, radical as it is, is certainly gaining more traction than its 2011 litigation strategy. Then, PETA filed suit in federal court in Southern California seeking to declare that SeaWorld’s whales are being held in slavery in violation of the 13th Amendment. The failed litigation sought a court-ordered release of the whales “from bondage.” CNN reported that the suit sought ‘a permanent order against holding them in slavery, as well as appointment of a legal guardian to carry out the transfer of the whales to a suitable habitat.’

Much of the impetus for the Washington state legislation under consideration, and similar bans that passed last year in New York state and San Francisco, was the advocacy film “Blackfish,” which aired nearly thirty times on CNN. CNN’s director of public relations, Jennifer Dargan, conceded to me that the film was “acquired” by the news organization and did not adhere to any of CNN’s journalistic standards.

Activists have recently blamed Walmart for obesity, SeaWorld for animal suffering and Uber for high transportation costs. The truth is, those who oppose the private sector economy and consumer choice will find villains regardless of the facts.

Jeffrey Ventre, who was fired from his job as a whale trainer at SeaWorld and has since enjoyed the limelight from his appearance in “Blackfish,” crowed that the recent legislation is the “proverbial writing on the wall” for an end to cetaceans in aquariums.

Ultimately, the radical animal activist agenda goes well beyond ending human interaction with animals outside of the wild – and zoos and aquariums as we know them. Some of these activists, who hold that animals aren’t property to be owned by humans, argue that we shouldn’t be allowed to own pets.

As one commenter on Twitter put it, “I see a Pixar’s ‘WALL-E’-type world looming in the near future.”

More American Animal Perversion On Display

On Fox and Friends this morning, a woman who reads the headlines filed a report of the United States Coast Guard rescuing a yellow Labrador retriever from icy waters that evidently the dog had fallen through the ice and couldn’t get out. They rescued the dog. To my knowledge nobody was injured.

At the end of the segment, the news person makes this statement: “I’m so glad those men risked their lives to save the dog.” And, as I have been asked on more than one occasion this morning, it was not some kind of joke or sarcasm that humans shouldn’t risk their lives over dogs. This woman was visibly upset over the poor dog and obviously and carelessly (perversion) was expectant that these men should risk their lives to save a dog. Save the dog, human lives are expendable?

Welfare Woman Eaten by Some of Her 50-Plus Wolf Hybrids

The skull, jawbone and thigh bone of a missing Kentucky woman were all that remained after she was most likely devoured by dozens of her pet wolf-dogs, authorities suspect.

Authorities found more than 50 of the canine hybrids roaming around Patricia Ritz’s Fordsville property when they showed up for a welfare check, police said.<<<Read More>>>

Global Warming to Cause More, Severe Storms….But, Don’t Go Look

I have often repeated the story of my nephew, who at around age 3, told his father, “Dad, I’ve finished eating my lunch….but don’t go look.”

The nonsensical hysteria of end-of-earth blathering, because of global warming, caused by man and therefore man must pay, continues, despite facts. Government-controlled, useful idiots, are continuing to repeat Government’s lies that global warming is going to make us all dead due to more and bigger storms; one report even claiming that if we don’t do something about global warming, Bruce Springsteen might begin to actually carry a tune.

“A major “scientific” study issued in the summer of 2013 by a climate researcher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) warned of increased activity of killer hurricanes because of global warming/climate change.”<<<Read More>>>

We’re all going to die……or be subjected to more Bruce Springsteen music. BUT DON’T GO LOOK!

Who Exactly is the Sociopath Here?

If this action wasn’t so damned pathetic it would be funny. Wayne Hooper, who writes outdoor articles for the Seacoast Online, shared with readers an email that he was sent. It goes like this:

“Your Sunday hunting logic is absurd, and if it wasn’t so sad and typical of sociopath Mainer behavior it would be laughably ridiculous! How about considering the rights of non-hunters who utilize the woodlands? Blue sky laws are an ignorant, self-absorbed straw man argument.

“I guess even one day a week for the at least six-week period during which housewife killing, scumbag Mainer hunters run amok in childish camo is too much for you to allow the over one million Mainers who aren’t hunters to walk in the woods without fear of being shot by a local chucklehead dirtbag with a gun, and to enjoy the same resources that you seem to demand and have a self-entitled expectation for.

“But that’s Maine, the capital of proud-without-cause sociopaths.”

Honest to god, you can’t make this stuff up!

In Protest of Protecting Hybrid Wild Dogs, Sheep Flock to Eiffel Tower

““It’s a bit like asking what is the point of an eagle, or a piece of music, or a painting. The wolf is part of life,” Patrick Boffy, the head of Ferus, told the BBC. “It returned naturally to France – the only southern European country where it had disappeared.”

“In France, we need to learn, little by little, how to live alongside wild animals again,” he added.”<<<Read More>>>

BLM Rescinds Idaho for Wildlife’s Predator Derby Permit – Fascism Rules

This should come as further substantiation that the country we live in is dictated by totalitarian environmentalists, who are doing exactly what the U.S. Government wants them to do. Actions like this, made to appear as though “Washington” forced BLM to rescind the permit, makes most believe there is innocents among the predator wolves of Washington and the fascist U.S. Government. Wake up people! We are not living in a free country any longer.

Press Release from Idaho for Wildlife:

IDAHO FOR WILDLIFE, INC.
PRESS RELEASE (11-25-14)
By Steve Alder, Pres.

The decision by the BLM to withdraw our permit will not stop the coyote and wolf hunt. We cannot dictate where people hunt. We will follow the same procedure as we did last year and require hunters during registration to sign a waiver stating that any wolf or coyote taken on BLM land will not qualify for the derby. The BLM at the DC level has become too politically influenced and motivated. The idea that they would require a full blown NEPA analysis including an Environmental assessment for only 100-150 hunters to cover over 3million acres is absurd and ridiculous.

We worked very hard with the local BLM to be granted the permit. After the BLM refused to grant us a permit last year, they advised us to start the permit process early and we jumped through every hoop they required. They issued us a permit and then the DC bureaucrats revoked it. There is no doubt that the local BLM spend a time and resources on this permitting process. The BLM policies need to be changed and we will push for more legislative oversight of this out of control agency that is now caving to the radical anti-hunters.

We will offer 2 cash prizes, one for the most coyotes and one for the most wolves. We will provide additional prizes for successful youth hunters.

100% of the excess cash contributions will be given back to the Salmon valley to various charities, such as a college scholarship, The local food bank, and to help a local rancher that was severely impacted by wolf depredation this past summer. This rancher is not one of the large ranchers and he lost the majority of his calf crop along with 13 adult cows to wolves this past Summer while they were grazing on Public land and this that has devastated him financially. He’s hoping to get a job at the new ShopKo that they are building in Salmon as he doesn’t think he can recover financially.

Thanks,

Steve Alder

I Suppose For Some It’s Better to Live in Outer Space

This is a copy of a letter sent to Steve Alder, head of Idaho for Wildlife, that will be hosting a predator derby hunt this coming winter in Idaho. When you don’t live on this planet, I can only assume understanding how Earth dwellers live becomes a difficult task, as this letter points out.

PETA Continues to Dognap and Kill

“Still, if true, these horrifying allegations show PETA, a group that ostensibly demands the empathetic treatment of animals, stealing and then killing a family’s pet. It’s horrifying, but not new: PETA employees in North Carolina faced charges in 2007 for their conduct operating a mobile puppy-killing van and discarding the animals’ bodies in dumpsters.”<<<Read More>>>
