I am no stranger to blogging about wildlife advocacy issues. I started doing this in early 2012 when Wisconsin began pushing the bill that has opened the door to the current wolf slaughter and making Wisconsin the ONLY state in the country that allows the use of dogs against those wolves. Inevitably whenever any advocate for a cause writes a story on a hot button issue the know it all “barstool biologists” and trolls come out of the woodwork in an attempt to “educate” or bully those that disagree with them. My posts about the massive Wisconsin overkill have been no exception.
Almost on cue the barstool biologists began to chime in with their usual BS talking points about wolves “eating every last thing on the landscape” and if it wasn’t for the “great white hunter” to save us they would be eating your grandchildren at a bus stop while huffing and puffing and blowing your house down.
Newsflash. This blog is a place for information to be presented that is backed up by established science. In case you didn’t notice this is PRO-WILDLIFE site. Not a pro-killing site. This is NOT a debate site for trolls to bully or for barstool biologists to think that because they dress up in camo they are some kind of an expert. If you want to troll and spread that “wolves are eating everything” fear mongering nonsense there are plenty of places for that to occur. This site is NOT one of them. This site is also not a place for those supposedly on the side of wildlife to come and make stupid threats and spread other nonsense. There are other places for that too.
For the trolls, barstool biologists, and those making threats your comments will NOT appear on this site.You are wasting your time even writing your drivel. The only exception are comments so idiotic and offensive that they WILL be posted here to shame you. This is an emotional topic but please do not stoop to the level of those on the anti-wolf hate sites. Let them be the monsters and ghouls. We don’t need to be.
This is an example of the type of comment that will be deleted immediately or as in this case posted to show what we are up against. This comment from from the world renowned wildlife biologist “Gav” showing a domain out of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. A city obviously buried in the “deep south” y’all.
“yall need to open your eyes and relive if there wasnt a season on wolves they would kill all the deer,rabbits,squirrels, and anything and everything, you guys cant live like that thinking its bad to kill wolves, if yall think its bad to then whyd you vote to reintroduce them into this state? Wisconsin would have been a million times better if they did bring them back, they kill everything. and im speaking from first hand accounts, ive seen 3 wolves kill half a herd of deer, they have almost wiped out the herd in the flambue river state forest by ladysmith, kill all the wolves then there wouldnt be anymore problems,”
These type of comments come in hourly along with the barstool biologists presenting the same sentiment and misinformation only with slightly better grammar. Then they get upset because I will not post their comments. There are plenty of site out there to post lies and misinformation about wolves. Facebook is full of them with one solely devoted to promoting poisoning, poaching, and other anarchy against wolves right here in Wisconsin. You don’t need to come to this blog and post your drivel.
As I am writing this more of the Shakespearean screeds of “Gav” just appeared in my email. Consider yourself enlightened that the words of such an endearing scholar can be made available to you:
whats wrong with Wisconsin? your living in it
whats wrong with the dnr? nothing at all!
i have a heart, but i also kill wolves
You may “have a heart” but you damn sure don’t have a dictionary. Welcome to the spam folder “Gav.” Enjoy your 15 milliseconds of fame.
Thus is the life of a pro-wildlife blogger. The stupid burns………….it burns……..
Wolf Kill Update
The kill number shows 98 as of this morning. The DNR still remains silent on the mass overkill that occurred in Zones 1 and 2 this past weekend. Let them know that we want answers and not propaganda:
