Murdered Wolves Found in Ditch, Killers on the Loose

Gray Wolf II

Target: Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Commissioner, Tom Landwehr

Goal: Investigate illegal slaughter of three wolves and bring murderers to justice.

The bodies of three gray wolves were recently found dumped in a ditch along a road in Minnesota. These beautiful animals are protected under the Endangered Species Act, yet someone blatantly disregarded this protection by killing these three wolves and throwing their bodies unceremoniously into a ditch. The murder of these innocent animals is a heinous crime, and those responsible must be brought to justice.

Wolf populations in Minnesota have been extremely delicate for decades, and their continued survival needs to be protected. Many hunters and trappers want hunting of wolves to be reinstated, but recently the existing population of wolves was still low enough for a judge to determine that they needed to continue to be listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act.

With this status, wolves are granted government protection from hunters and trappers, and killing them for sport is illegal. The three wolves that were found dumped by the side of the road had snare marks on their necks, suggesting that their deaths are likely due to illegal poaching. Not only are these innocent animals, but they are animals who we are supposed to be protecting so that their species can avoid permanent extinction.

Because killing gray wolves is an illegal offense, it is punishable by up to six months in jail and a $25,000 fine. Whoever committed the despicable act of murdering these three gray wolves needs to be found and held accountable for their actions. Please sign the petition below to show your support for the protection of gray wolves by demanding these murderers be found and punished.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Commissioner Landwehr,

I am writing to request that you and your department continue to do everything in your power to find and prosecute the person or persons who brutally murdered three gray wolves and dumped them in a ditch along a road in Minnesota. The gray wolf is protected under the Endangered Species Act, yet whoever carried out these killings blatantly ignored this protection and deserves to be punished to the full extent of the law.

The survival of gray wolves has been at risk for decades, and their numbers continue to be tenuous at best. Not long ago, a judge determined that wolf populations were still at risk and that they needed to continue to be listed as threatened. These three wolves who were murdered were found with snare marks on their necks, which makes it highly likely that they were illegally poached. It is essential that these senseless killings are not forgotten and that the murderer is found and prosecuted.

Gray wolves are beautiful animals who need our protection. Without shelter from hunting and trapping, these animals could once again be pushed to the brink of extinction. We cannot stand for anyone sabotaging the survival of these animals, especially with such brutal and inhumane acts. Please defend gray wolves and demand that your agency not stop until the killer of these three wolves is apprehended.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD WE LIVE IN, THE SICK AND TWISTED PEOPLE GET AWAY WITH THE VILE EVIL SICK THINGS THEY DO AND WE LET THEM, NOBODY GETS WHAT THEY SHOULD, THEY SHOULD BE TREATED THE SAME WAY AS THEY TREAT THE ANIMAL THAT THEY HAVE HURT TORTURED AND KILLED, IF ONLY, BUT I CAN SEE NO OTHER WAY OF MAKING THESE BASTARDS STOP WHAT THEY DO.

    We are Mindlessly Proliferating our Human species, Invading the Natural Habitat of others and Destroying all in our path. Remove all Thrill-Killers from society ! ! ! !

  4. Barbara Griffith says:

    I wish I could catch the bastard that did this in a snare trap just so the creep would know what it feels like to die slowly like these wolves did. These animals are needed in nature to help keep the balance. But creatures like this don’t know any of that all they know is if the deer herds that may die of disease are blamed on the wolves. Even with these poachers killing deer illegally all year round the wolves are still blamed if the deer herds numbers are going down because of the poachers. Nuts.

  5. Olimpia Marina says:

    The local Governor is the first to be blamed

  6. Olimpia Marina says:

    The local Governor should be asked why he is allowing such crimes ?

    These types of psychotic individuals have no conscience and they are not only dangerous to innocent lives in the wild (wolves of course and most likely any other animal that moves) but they can be a danger to anyone if they are set off in any way. They must be caught and punished for this heinous crime of nature as not only killing these wonderful animals by bullets is bad enough, but snares is much worse in that they are deliberately put in a position to suffer a long and agonizing death. Because this type of person is unbalanced and kills for the sake of killing he’ll also brag about such a devious and barbaric deed and it’s about time they are caught and dealt with severely. Justice needs to be secured for these innocent wolves who suffered for nothing except out of hate and fear and because they do NOT have a conscience concerning an innocent life and in this case lives. They MUST PAY FOR THIS HATE CRIME!!!
