Re: “Wildlife groups seek restraining order to block wolf-hunting derby in Idaho

This just in from Carol Gage, California:

"The proposed wolf/coyote extermination 'derby' currently being organized by hunters' 'rights' groups in Idaho is an affront to reason and right-thinking on every level. The proposal represents nothing more than the basest bloodlust and should be stopped in its tracks. If court challenges fail and this travesty is allowed to proceed, then I predict that this will be BOTH an environmental disaster and a tourism debacle for Idaho. The bad PR that such a 'hunt' will generate will make Idaho radioactive to a whole segment of the traveling public who will retaliate by taking their tourist/visitor dollars elsewhere. Funny how that works."

Re: “Wildlife groups seek restraining order to block wolf-hunting derby in Idaho

It ain't just Idaho, folks--these non-selective wildlife massacres take place in California, New Mexico, Wisconsin, New York and elsewhere. And wolves and coyotes are not the only targets. Prairie dogs, ground squirrels, woodchucks, crows and others are routinely victimized. These contests serve only to exacerbate the perceived problems, while giving ALL hunting a black eye. Ethical hunters need to speak up. Indeed, they should be leading the effort to ban these indiscriminate bloodbaths.

Legislation is in order to ban these "contests" nationwide. They are unethical, inhumane and ecologically-unsound.

Now's the time. Most state legislatures reconvene in January. Contact your state reps and urge them to introduce legislation banning these wildlife slaughters. (If in doubt as to who your reps are, see the "Government" pages in your telephone book.)

Meanwhile, express your opinions to:
