AP's Wolf Hunt Truth-In-Reporting

This AP story about the Wisconsin DNR closure of certain wolf hunting zones does not contain the agency's sanitizing words "harvest" or "harvested," and uses instead the factually descriptive terms "kill" or killed" four times.

The Wisconsin DNR news release announcing the wolf hunting zone closures uses the agency's preferred "harvest" or harvested" terms thirteen times. Tthe words "kill" or killed" do not appear.

Additional information, here.

We should take the hint and not succumb to using the white-washing language either. Wolf slaughter will work well.

Isn't anyone here concerned that Coyotes can be killed 24/7 365 days a year in WI?

Most people if shown two photos would have a hard time distinguishing one from the other.

This just shows how fake this Wolf hunt outrage really is.
