The picture u see is a fun-picture and does not meet the messsage i want to sent u, but it is more a funny one as the title could be matching this picture, anyway, u see a url and that is a new bill which will be introduced on thursday for unlimited killing wild animals by farmers, also with if needed -live bait-
Senator Jeff Siddoway, a Idaho sheep rancher, has introduced Senate bill 1305, one of the most disgusting anti-wolf bills yet and that’s saying something.
Here is the url, read it well this is discusting and i copied the following article because i could not do it better myself, thanks to Howling for Justice. (see his blog in wordpress>>http://howlingforjustice.wordpress.com/)
“Under Sen. Jeff Siddoway’s plan introduced Thursday, ranchers whose livestock are molested or killed by wolves could employ powered parachutes, as well as traps baited with live animals, to target the predators within 36 hours without a permit.
After that, they could get permits giving them up to 60 days to pursue offending wolf packs.”
It’s not bad enough hunters have killed over 300 wolves in Idaho since September or that the state wants to swoop down on the innocent Lolo wolves and aerial gun them for some perceived threat to elk, who’ve been declining in the Lolo since before wolves were reintroduced. Now this.
So live bait? That could be a dog, a horse ANYTHING that’s alive.
Ranchers going up in ultra-lights to aerial gun wolves??
This bill has to be fought with everything we’ve got. The Senate Resources & Environmental Committee is holding a hearing tomorrow in Boise @ 1:30pm with live streaming
They are accepting public comments. I know this is short notice but please be there if you can and speak out against this travesty of a bill!
