Recently, a young elk was euthanized after approaching and aggressively nudging a man to request food. This particular elk had been sedated and removed from the area frequently, but always returned because humans continued to offer sustenance.

Recently, a young elk was euthanized after approaching and aggressively nudging a man to request food. This particular elk had been sedated and removed from the area frequently, but always returned because humans continued to offer sustenance. Because the elk had “lost its fear of humans,” it was deemed a liability and had to be put down. The poor elk made the mistake of trusting humans and he was the one killed for no reason. Done

Noted and signed - shame, these poor animals are not to blame - we are! We have taken almost everything from them, land, food, water etc. And yet we just decide to put them down because they are looking to humans to help them! We cannot be called human if this is what we do!.

S+N the problem maybe people who fear animals, the best thing for them to do is move to the city and leave the animals alone! Take the animals over people any day!

This article is full of ironies and i can make a beautiful point here.. its all in wording and who is doing the "wording".. Please Follow along...
When it comes to the Govt, doing the feeding of the wildlife. For Gun promotion and "hunting, trapping traditions" its called BAITING. you are perfectly fine to stomp out into the woods for months before a deer, elk, bear, wolf, beaver, lion, what ever other kind of innocent animal you want to murder. Lay out monsanto corn, and other type of feed and then it is used for promoting growth of trophy type of antlers and better hides and makes the animal get "used to humans" So, when the KILLING starts. All the trapper has to do is lay the trap and BOOM! DEAD ANIMAL. Simple 231 wolves murdered in 11 days in Wisconsin. [ just 1 point] laid out by BAITED TRAPS. these were set by bear hunters that had just murdered more then 4,000 bears. The bear killing had just ended less then a week before they got to start ripping the skins off of the wolves.. Coyotes and Fox, and beavers and squirrels and many other less fortunate creatures get to be slaughtered non-stop all day and night 24 hours every day in THIS STATE. Thanks to the republican ruled NRA backed run, Gun Laws.

Ok, next wording. If it is Liberal Animal Rights people, and we are peeling an apple or peeling some corn for our supper and take the left over peels and put them out in our field for some deer that might want to eat them. Rather then filling up the land-fill or local waste management to "save the environment" Then, its BAD! We must not do that! DO NOT FEED THE WILDLIFE! we are bad people! shame on us! (because its not supporting big business) no purchased monsanto feed, No guns, this is free leftovers and we are promoting peaceful wildlife. Now you understand? [ They can do it at the local hunting supply stores and even farm stores, look for the products.. trophy feed] But we can't

NOW if we put on hunting clothes and buy a hunting stand and carry guns to feed the animals our left over apples, THE WE ARE OK. so, next time we feed the deer... wear all your hunting gear, grab your guns. make it a real event! Bring along the local camera crew! then we are not "liberals" we are doing THEM a favor.

Noted and signed. It is so important to remember not to feed wild animals!!!!!!! They come back for more, and therefore become comfortable around humans!!!!!
