Dear Administrator Parham, Deputy Administrator Clay, and State Director Krischke:

Following up on the Animal Welfare Institutes (AWI) letter, I, too, am writing to request your immediate investigation and subsequent termination of Jamie P. Olson, a Wildlife Services (WS) employee, based in Douglas, Wyoming, for blatant acts of animal cruelty.

As you are no doubt aware, you can view the following photos published by Mr. Olson:

As noted and sourced by AWI, they, and Project Coyote, firmly oppose the use of steel-jaw traps for the capture of any species given their inherent cruelty. I am further alarmed that instead of immediately killing the trapped animals, this WS employee inflicted even greater fear and pain on already-suffering animals caught in these brutal traps by allowing dogs to torment or attack the trapped animals as is depicted in several of the photographs. This is unacceptable behavior for any trapper, but such wanton cruelty and callous disregard for the welfare of these animals is particularly egregious when done by a government employee and must not be tolerated.

Furthermore, another photograph posted on Olsons Twitter page titled Eagles got to this adult female before i did. #3 bridger on a drag, (also shown at this link ) demonstrates Olsons failure to check his traps in a timely manner and his disregard for the animals pain and suffering.

I also note that Mr. Olson appears to be the primary organizer of several coyote contest hunts in Montana and one scheduled for January 2013 in Dickson, North Dakota ( article dated October 15, 2012, about the MT contest and the attached flyer advertising the ND contest mentioned at below link).

Click on this link for further information:

Mr. Olsons mobile phone number is included in the article. If this is a WS-issued phone, Mr. Olsons use of it to organize and promote a coyote-killing contest is unacceptable and provides additional grounds for his termination.

As you know, WS is a highly controversial program responsible for killing millions of animals each year which is funded, in part, with taxpayer dollars. While AWI, PC, and WS disagree about the merits of WS lethal control practices, there should be no question that the intentional infliction of additional suffering on any trapped animal by a WS employee is entirely unacceptable and warrants immediate termination.

Thank you for your immediate attention to this matter and for expeditiously and decisively acting on these concerns. I look forward to receiving your response to this matter in writing by replying to my email address.

jamie Olson should have his feet nailed to the floor and then get hit a few times with a baseball bat to get a taste of what he put those poor animals through.
