WI Wolf Slaughter Begins Tuesday

Wisconsin's shameful wolf hunt begins Tuesday. Blood sport for bloody politics.

Get past the "harvest" rhetoric, the mysterious authorship of the enabling law and the false flag of livestock and animal killing by wolves exaggerated to justify the hunt - - and you are left with the truth:

So-called sportsmen and women wanted and got the right to kill these animals for sport: 

Mike Wiggins, chairman of the Bad River Ojibwe tribe in Wisconsin, stated that “the presence of wolves in the woods is sacred and tangible. They are a gift.” With that being said, wolves mean a lot to Native Americans; wolves are the traditional and spiritual importance to them.

Farmers had been allowed to shoot wolves that killed their animals or call in wardens that would deal with it.

The state has and continues to operate a depredation reimbursement plan - - including up to $2,500 to bear hunters whose dogs were killed by wolves protecting their territory - - further compensating for wolves that were encouraged to reproduce under state and local protections.

But after the federal government removed the wolf from protection, Wisconsin's new right-wing government run by Scott Walker, and beholden to the NRA and other hunting groups, and a small town/rural constituency, kicked the scientists and biologists out of planning and advisory inputs and threw together a hunt designed to terrorize, wear down and decimate the wolves with traps and guns.

All that's left is to legalize the use of dogs in wolf hunting - - leading to more bloodletting and state payments, too.

This year's hunt - - the second - - substantially expands the killing.

Next year and the year after, and soon the wolf killers will have wiped out the packs.

For blood sport, serving bloody politics.

Friends of Wisconsin Wolf is holding a statewide protest and it is your chance to tell your friends, neighbors, coworkers, and most of all Secretary Stepp and Governor Scott Walker that we will not stand for this wolf hunt.

There are two main events planned in Wisconsin, however we encourage anyone who can’t be in either of these locations, to help organize in your community. Here in Madison, we are gathering outside the State Capitol, outdoors where we do not need a permit and also in Superior, Wisconsin from 4-6pm OCT 15th. We hope you can attend but you can take part from your home or office too! Make this Statewide!

Get a sign. We have full color signs you can print on our website, but a sharpie, some (recycled) copy paper and your message of support saying you Reject the Wolf Hunt is beautiful and all your own. Get some of our brochures to hand out.

Howl all day! Even if it's just you at your desk or standing in line at the deli and you howl so quietly it can't be heard--howl your support for wolves! You know why you care, howl about it!

Get a pic. Self with why you love wolves? Great. Your whole office in the break room holding signs? Amazing. Whatever you do, get a pic and get it to us. We'll make sure the DNR hears you! Email it

Tweet it! Use the hashtag #FriendsWIWolf and we'll add it to the pack.

Post it to our Facebook page.

No matter what you're doing you have my gratitude and support. Please keep us posted on your efforts and check for updates and more ways you can keep the pressure on to keep wolves protected.

Thank you for your commitment to wolves and Wisconsin, any questions, just call 608-234-8860 or email us at

Is there any way that I can print sheets for petition signatures to end this horrific and soulless slaughter?
