Howling For Wolves condemns three wildlife killing contests to be held this weekend in Minnesota as cruel, ineffective, and disastrous for wildlife

by Rev. Austin Miles

This came to me as an urgent Press Release which I gladly have posted on my website: http://www.revaustinmiles.com and on the news wire. People, please put a stop to this march to cruelty contest.

Animals have the same feelings we do including pain, fear, anxiety, distress, grief and yes, even love. So these targeted animals will experience the same pain you would experience if you were the hunted in this barbaric “sport.”  Below is the contact numbers for Howling for Wolves that protects animals.

PRESS RELEASE FROM HOWLING FOR WOLVES
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 18, 2019
CONTACT: Dr. Maureen Hackett, Howling For Wolves, 612.250.5915, or Leslie Rosedahl at 651.353.1818, respond@howlingforwolves.org

(St. Paul) – Three wildlife killing contests will be hosted this weekend in Minnesota. These contests target coyotes and foxes.

The sponsors of this atrocity and their phone numbers are listed below. With courtesy, urge them to pull their sponsorship;

West Metro Coyote Hunting Tournament (Watertown, Minnesota): Host-  Hollywood Sports Complex: (952) 955-2424

Buffalo Ridge Coyote Hunting Tournament (Marshall, Minnesota): Host-  Brau Brothers Brewing: (507) 929-2337

Minndak Coyote Tournament (Randolph, Minnesota): Host- Roscoe’s Roadhouse: (507) 263-5157

“Wildlife killing contests are cruel, ineffective, and do not reflect Minnesota’s tradition of sportsmanship and respect for the outdoors,” said Joe Wolf, board member of Howling For Wolves.

Hunts like this are unregulated – with no rules, and no limits.

“Killing contests are wrong for many reasons; First, there is no place in a civil society for wildlife killing contests. These types of tournaments are disastrous to wildlife and the balance of ecosystems, and simply glorify violent behavior by encouraging killing simply for the sake of killing.

Second, organizers of these events often claim that they are helping to control predator populations. The fact is, this is not about controlling wildlife populations. This is about thrill-killing, a nonsensical, savage contest to see who can kill the most. Finally, we need the fox to control infectious diseases, including Lyme disease,” said Wolf.

The phone number of the sponsors of this horrendous killing party are shown above. Please contact them with courtesy and urge them to call off his dastardly deed which makes all of us look like savages

Rev. Austin Miles is the author of the just published book, God and Animals-What the Bible Says About Animals and Heaven. Here is a link with information of this book that celebrates all animals: https://www.capitolhilloutsider.com/new-animal-book-answers-the-question/
The book is available on Amazon.

EMM commentary:  Every little outside feral cat we had has been eaten by coyotes, every rabbit, every skunk has been killed. I have no problem destroying coyotes who destroy people’s pets.  They are a menace and a predator that needs to be eliminated.  Wolves attack and kill ranch animals…there’s a limit to everything.  I’m sorry but wolves have become a menace to ranchers  and it’s all because of releasing them where they don’t belong.

 


Wild Wolves Represented in Minnesota Court Battle

by Rev. Austin Miles

  1. PAUL, MINN-6/18/18–There are mental cases who ENJOY causing innocent animals to suffer. There are others who get perverted thrills from simply killing an animal. Not for food or even their fur, but to satisfy a sick joy in seeing the animals suffer and die. It makes these idiots feel powerful. The same with those in uniform who torture human beings to death.

Then there is Trophy Hunting where one kills an animal in order to cut off their heads, stuff them, and hang the heads on a wall in their home for all visitors to see.

This column has advocated for special courts and lawyers to handle cases of animal mistreatment and cruelty.  As a result, three such animal courts have been established to make sure that those who harm animals receive proper punishment while making the public aware.

Meanwhile, citizen animal advocacy groups have formed to help animals including, Howling for Wolves, helmed by Dr. Maureen Hackett and Leslie Rosedahl who hop into action to stop trophy and “recreational” hunting.

Today, the Itasca County Court heard a case against defendants Stephen Bemboom and Brad Dumonceaux who face 67 charges related to illegally snaring wolves and bears in Northern Minnesota.

Snaring, a horrible practice, uses a cheap wire noose to trap animals which usually encircles an animal’s neck, like a noose, causing prolonged suffering for the victim that is restrained to starve to death for up to 19 days while the poor animal continually gasps for breath right up to the last. This is inhuman and must stop!

Howling for Wolves is there to urge the court to apply animal cruelty charges and punish the trappers to the full extent of the law–otherwise there won’t be any deterrence and a pattern of illegal trapping will continue.

Minnesota should end all recreational snaring, said Dr. Maureen Hackett, founder and president of Howling For Wolves.

The next “omnibus” court hearing of this case will be held on September 17, 2018. Animal advocates, be there. Fill that courtroom to show that there is heavy support for animal welfare. Remember, the wolf is the first cousin to the dog.

Howling for Wolves is a Minnesota based wolf advocacy organization to educate the public and policy-makers about wolves, to foster understanding and tolerance, and to ensure their long-term survival in the wild. Howling for Wolves supports effective, science-based, and nonlethal wolf plans to support and promote human and gray wolf coexistence into the future. www.HowlingForWolves.org.
