Minnesota's Wolves Needed for Ecological Balance

With so many other species whose existence depends on the presence of the wolf, it behooves the DNR to follow its own Wolf Management Plan. That plan's stated goals are to ensure the long-term survival of the wolf in Minnesota and to resolve conflicts bet

This article from Maureen is nice compared to the hate-filled one posted in Wisconsin from the DNR based Bear Hunters who profit from killing them and get paid highly from the taxpayers and sell for greed in the state. Its appalling to see the lies and corruption that goes along with the Wolf. I am just sick of it. Remember, October 15th, State of Wisconsin is the start of Dogs ripping apart Wolves in the first ever pit fighting dog-vs-wolves to the death for profit (every dog that dies they get paid 2500.00 for! What have you done to stop this?

Greed is a major factor. However let's ask ourselves which species provides a greater ecological balance; humans or wolves?

Leave wolves alone! Stop hunting them. They'll feel better. But as usual, the greed of some people is more important than the wellbeing of wolves.

Of course they are. They are vital to the balance of nature. If people just got out of the way(become extinct actually) things would be fine but these damn ranchers and hunters refuse to let them be. It is not the wolves who are dangerous and evil but those who insist on killing them. It is time for a little culling of the human race in my humble opinion.

The tax payers of wisconsin should fight against paying for dead hunting dogs.. The money is meant to placate ranchers who lose livestock to wolf predation- it should not be given to hunters who deliberately put their dogs in harms' way.

Without a doubt, wolves are very important for the eco-system. In fact all animals have a role to play in the eco-system. The psychological profile of serial killers is consistent with the characteristic traits of hunters . . . . why would any country promote hunting?

Les loups contribuent à conserver cet équilibre. Cessez de les tuer.

Last year, of the 413 wolves killed, 240 were juveniles. These young wolves had survived the high mortality pup stage and were growing to the reproductive age, how sad to know news like this.

What disgusting creatures humans are - to do these atrocious things to innocent and defenceless animals is not only barbaric and sadistic, but unforgivable!

Thanks for all of your wonderful comments regarding the article. It is so great to see a positive side, which is so rare. We find it so hard here to understand the terrible things that happen to the animals in this world. Our fight continues always.
