About trophy hunting, bees, and related matters: food for thought

This blog has frequently carried postings about Wisconsin's uniquely brutal wolf hunt that has been politically-promoted by the state's well-connected bear hunting and gun lobbies.

I've also taken note of the survival battles of the small critters - - bees, Monarch butterflies and all the species damaged by oil spills.

With that in mind, you might take a look at this story:
We’ve killed off half the world’s animals since 1970

Butterflies, bees and other pollinators are among the most reliable barometers of the health of our environment. They are very sensitive to insecticides, herbicides and any pollutants. For example, a chemical in Roundup, glyphosate, is linked to many diseases even in humans.
But for Walker and the 1% that he actually works for it seems the destruction of life isn't happening fast enough. Why would Walker & his cronies want to reward hunters & destroyers as their policies have demonstrated? I think it's due to their sociopathic personalities. Cruelty and lack of empathy towards animals and those more vulnerable in society are sociopathic/psychopathic behaviors.
Here is some breaking news on how the FBI is recognizing that fact and how they will be treating it more seriously. http://abcnews.go.com/Health/wireStory/fbi-turns-animal-cruelty-top-tier-felony-25889135

Perhaps Walker & his gang can now be charged with "intentional abuse and torture" in the facilitation of the death of wolves, bears, hunting dogs etc. How about Kathy Stepp? There should be a special category for her as a fawn killer & nightmare spawner for children who love Bambi & can't process her hatred towards fawns.
