Knowing that our taxes pay for killing animals in this sick manner is an unfair fight, the animals have no weapons.

Wildlife Services under Fire for Release of Annual Kill Numbers

http://ecowatch.org/...l-kill-numbers/







Wildlife Services reported it killed nearly 1,400 house cats, more than 400 domestic dogs, 14 American white pelicans, and 2,983 meadowlarks in FY 2011. Other notable changes from the previous year include:
  • The number of raptors (hawks, falcons, owls, and vultures) killed increased from 7,798 in FY 2010 to 11,061 in FY 2011, representing a 42 percent increase.
  • Mammalian carnivores (wolves, coyotes, bears, bobcats, fishers, cougars, weasels, skunks, raccoons and foxes) killed increased by three percent from FY 2010, from 112,781 to 116,093, with the greatest increases in the numbers of coyotes and raccoons killed.
  • The number of animals poisoned by cyanide M-44s increased by a whopping 31 percent from FY 2010 from 14,155 to 18,587, with the biggest increases in coyotes killed: 2,300 more coyotes than the previous year. The numbers of animals reported killed by Compound 1080 dropped to 17 from previous years’ (2008 to 2010) average of 27. (These two poisons have been the subject of regulatory review by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency after Guardians petitioned for a ban these toxicants in 2007 (with a decision expected next year), and now as part of a bill pending in Congress.)
  • The number of animals killed by aerial gunning increased from 42,431 to 48,811 (15 percent), with the greatest increase in the number of hogs shot from aircraft. Notably one cougar was reported killed by aerial gunning in Texas. (Wildlife Services has never before recorded aerial gunning cougars, although a former employee has contented the agency engages in the practice part of a whistleblower lawsuit against the agency.)

The day the GOVERNMENT stops killing animals is when they stop killing their own people.

it is a shame that government officials/?/ would have such immoral disrespect for nature and wildlife-so hypocritical.  What do they do with the deceased animals--no I don't want to know.  They waste $ on these ignorant issues but in the meantime there are homeless and starving people +if they don't respect wildlife why would they respect us?  Instead of coexistence with wildlife and their environments they would rather destroy.

dammit im mad is spelled the same backwards

"The American public has spent $40 million dollars and two decades to restore wolves in the Northern Rockies. Now that effort is threatened because of misguided Congressional action based on mythical claims about the species."

Number of wildlife killed and how, surely it contributes to endangering them.

I'm ok with some of the killing done by the DNR. There are things like rabid or injured animals out there. Or animals that are endangering people. I realize that those critters are but a small number of the totals. I'm ok with the killing of hogs and critters like nutrias because they are invasive, damaging, and non-native species. We made those messes, it's our responsibility to clean them up. I'm ok with some population control hunting, like raccoons. We have effectively decreased raccoons natural predators to the point where it's kind of our responsibility to step in as predator to some extent. Especially in more urban environments where we have reduced their natural predators to none.

However, I'm not always ok with the killing. I'm not a fan of poisons and air hunting. I'm sure there's all sorts of inappropriate hunting going on. Those parts of it make me want to rant. But I won't.
