Resources Board Boosts WI Wolf Kill; A Possible Explanation
Updating information about Wisconsin's wolf hunt from a couple of days ago, and keep this other magnificant animal in mind, too:
The Wisconsin Natural Resources Board and Walker-appointed policy-makers at the DNR are allowing the killing of substantially more wolves this coming season - - 37% - - and cutting the permit fee in half.
Part of the reason the DNR is allowing more wolves to be 'harvested' is that the Ojibwe, who consider the animal spiritually significant, left their allotment of permits idle last year and refused to to do their share of 'harvesting.'
So the authorities are working around the tribal no-show by simply increasing the total number of allowable kills.
But beyond further pandering to the NRA and some hunters' votes, sticking it to the tribes who won't kill wolves and keeping up the pressure because they don't want an iron mine being dug and blown up for 35 years in the Bad River watershed, is there anything else behind so sharply increasing the projected kill?
I posed some basic questions at the Purple Wisconsin blog site - - Why increase WI wolf kill? Why have the hunt, period? - - and thought I'd pass on this exchange:

I believe the real purpose of the wolf hunt is, from the Tea Party perspective, as a symbolic slap in the face to Liberal, tree-hugging environmentalists, providing the sadists with a little chuckle at the wolves' expense. It's a weaponized version of those "Nuke the Gay Whales" bumper stickers often displayed during the Reagan regime by motorists who wished to identify themselves as idiots.
Walker does things for one reason and only one reason to get more nut jobs (low information voters) to vote for him.
That's one good lookin' and wise commenter.
