Another Screwball...Take the cattle away period...they were not there ~ they were carted in and it hurts me that they were killed, but taking out Naturet in action is a WRONG MISTAKE!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, the wedge pack is now gone, I had so many text to my phone, during the attack on them, more then 5,000 people were in a frantic. Alot of people were trying to save this pack. Oregon offered to take the whole pack and give them sanctuary. Just a rotten ending. *cries* Thanks Kevin, More bad news will start coming in within the next few weeks, I don't know if i will be able to bear posting it. Going to need to have someone post it for me I think ;(

How to create a sadistic individual and a sadistic nation:

In studies of those who are ordered to shoot to kill at close range, the common response of those so ordered is at first violent nausea - feeling sick. Then they become accustomed to doing so, and finally most begin to enjoy the emotional experience of killing for its own sake. This condition is called Sadism..

I have suggested in writing in the recent past that since wolves are wild carnivores, they must not be slain for their nature, for their nature is to take animals for food, unlike "sportsmen", "trophy hunters", and government wildlife management officers. Instead the actions of the wolf must either be responded to through law, a law which recognizes individuals as "persons", entitled to defense and representation; otherwise their actions should be regarded as "acts of God" as forces of Nature, and accepted by humans.
I hope that others will consider that only these two alternatives should exist in any nation ruled by law.

Wolves show great individual variation in their habits, and do learn. The rancher in Washington who claimed cattle losses did not produce expert incontrovertible evidence of the cattle deaths, and worse, is a welfare rancher, leasing your very own public land for his private profits.
This rancher, unlike others in his area, has consistently REFUSED to use nonlethal methods of warding off the wolf pack from his "property". There are several methods which have been shown to be effective, including merely attaching ribbons to areas around cattle. There are other methods as well, including harassment and just riding or otherhuman presence. He refused to do any of these and other things.

Hopefully this killing will cause you to take the position that public lands are NOT for private profits. BLM and USDA Forest Service continue to lose money on grazing and logging, and subsidize such morons as this rancher, who claims that anyone who disagrees with him is a "radical environmentalist."

Quite the contrary is the truth:
In fact this man is a tax burden on the people of the USA, willingly causing physical and emotional damage to others, and his intransigent position causes additional financial burden upon the USFWS and requires them to maintain their "Wildlife Services" branch, which does so much of the needless killing of North American native species.

Disgusting! Stop farming animals and there would be no excuse for this heinous crime, let the wolves live! They deserve a life just as much as we do! Happy World Vegetarian Day!

Noted - as sorry as I feel for the farm animals, remember, we have taken everything from these animals, how else must they get food. Just a pity that the sharpshooter didn't fall from that helicopter and get eaten by the wolves.
