Stop Mass Extermination of Wild Boars

Target: Megan Evans, Alberta Invasive Species Council Executive Director

Goal: Stop the unethical eradication of wild boars in Alberta.

Across North America, wild boars are considered a “pest” and intense efforts have been made to eradicate the species. Wild boars were introduced into Alberta in the 1980s in efforts to diversify agriculture and generate additional income. The agriculture industry’s greed and ignorance have caught up with them, and now boars are loose in the province. Claiming reasons of land destruction and loss of farm revenue, the Alberta Invasive Species Council is looking at large-scale annihilation of the species.

Wild boars should not be wantonly massacred because of humankind’s stupidity. Even though they are not native and should not have been introduced in the first place, that does not give people the right to systematically hunt down and slaughter an entire species. Other methods of control must be implemented, such as sterilization or catch-and-release. While these efforts may cost more, that is the price the province has to pay for its lack of foresight and poor judgment.

Sign this petition to stop the wholescale eradication of wild boars in Alberta.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mrs. Evans,

Just because wild boars are not native, this does not give your organization the right to systematically seek and destroy them. Any damage they cause or revenue loss they inflict is the result of poor judgement and greed of the agriculture industry. These animals should not pay the ultimate price for humankind’s stupidity, and they should be allowed to live out their lives in peace.

To mitigate their damage both now and in the future, other methods of control should be implemented, such as relocation or sterilization. These methods may cost more than slaughtering the feral animals, but this is the ethical path to choose to correct people’s mistake.

I urge you to stop the eradication of the wild boars in Alberta and choose a better, more ethical, path.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    This is the result of YOUR misjudgement and greed. You needed them and now this is how you REPAY them. YOU LEFT THEM TO REPRODUCE. WHAT DID YOU THINK WOULD HAPPEN? If they are truly destructive, relocate and sterilize. IT IS YOUR FAULT SO THE WILD BOARS SHOULD NOT PAY!

    ERADICATION IS NEVER THE ANSWER!

    I AGREE WITH MOST OF THE COMMENTS ABOVE AND WOULD LIKE TO SEE ALL ANIMALS GET THEIR REVENGE ON HUMANS THAT DO NOT HAVE ANY EMPATHY, HUMANITY FOR ANIMALS THAT CANNOT PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM PSYCHO HUMANS!

    • Thsnk you for your comment. It was a Women wisdom. I am sure that mass extermination was a hunters idea (men+pseudowomen). Normal people do not want kill healthy animals.

      • Todd Vaught says:

        But normal people will eat them and let the not-normal kill them for their consumption. A meat eaters wisdom.

  2. American Girl says:

    Man made stupidity. Kill, kill, kill! This is the solution of these inbred morons. God forbid you should come up with a humane solution such as sterilization for your ignorance! STOP the madness NOW! GOD will judge you on your continuous cruelty…

  3. The only good hunter is a dead one. Hunt the hunters! Those who kill animals most definitely require extermination by means of a slow and agonizing death! Back off and leave the wild boars alone!

    • Todd Vaught says:

      So you are now advocating save the boars, kill the humans. And before they die you want them to be tortured. I think you just crossed the line to “hate” speech. Why not add the beef, poultry, domestic hog farmer and fishermen to your kill/torture list?

  4. I agree with you guys hunters enjoy killing, but if it happened close to their home they might change their thinking.

  5. Shirley Lemieux says:

    It is always disappointing to hear of a Government agency approving the slaughter of an animal species. But not surprising. I agree with this petition that other methods, as mentioned, to control the population of wild boars should be implemented. Relocation and or Sterilization seems like reasonable alternatives. The Alberta Invasive Species Council should consider these alternatives.

  6. Sebastien Dutrisac says:

    What about the other species that are getting affected because of the wild boar? Shouldn’t they be protected from the effects of this invasive species? I will assume you already know that the Alberta Invasive Species Council nor Megan Evans is not the legislative body or person that identified Wild Boar as a Pest.

    To be clear, I do not hunter, like you, i want to protect native flora and fauna.

  7. What is up with the cowardly kill crazy idiots in Canada?! They don’t seem to be happy unless they’re killing baby seals, wild boars, etc. If they want to kill so bad, then why don’t they work up some guts & join the military? Then they can be sent to some third world country & shoot all the bad guys to death.

  8. Jaime Perez says:

    It’s the fault of humans that these animals got out of control. Now they want to murder them! Stupid people, stop doing stupid things that hurt the animals.

  9. When you write a letter, Animal Petitions, it would behoove you to use a little more tact in your choice of words, and to explain how the defender’s actions were not the wisest.

    Stop the unethical eradication of wild boars in Alberta.

    The vile and evil lowlife vermin human species always deliberately torturing and murdering innocent and defenceless sentient beings.
    All the vile and evil psychopathic pea size brain animal torturers and animal murderers must be put to death.Kill them all.

  11. Renne Whitmore says:

    Killing just to kill is wrong.

  12. STUPIDITY, SHORTSIGHTEDNESS and GREED OF THE FARMERS HAS NO END. HUMANS EXPLOIT THESE ANIMALS, AND WHEN THEY ARE NOT NEEDED ANY MORE, JUST KILL THEM. THOSE WHO KILL THESE ANIMALS ARE DESENSITIZED, DEHUMANIZED, SADISTIC PSYCHOPATHS! STOP the unethical eradication of wild boars in Alberta. KILL THESE ANIMAL MURDERERS INSTEAD because these are a totally WORTHLESS SCUM and NATURE HATERS….LEAVE WILD BOARS ALONE!….THEY HAVE JUST AS MUCH RIGHT TO THIS PLANET AS HUMANS! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME ON CANADA!!!! Wild boars are NOT “pest”. HUMANS are PEST!!!!

  13. In Canada the invasive species are the europeans. Either move the board back to their native lands or TNR them. If not, then you europeans need to leave or you guys can exterminate each other.

  14. GOD CREATED ALL SPECIES TO SHARE THIS EARTH.
    What makes humans think they have the right over animals? With great minds something could be engineered to share land. Killing off another specie IS NOT THE ANSWER!!!!

  15. STOP your ignorant MURDERS — we have life-affirming, non-lethal options where BOARS need NOT suffer and die — Boars can be fixed, vaccinated and released — even RELOCATED, if done properly — the plan to SLAUGHTER is depravedly cruel, insane, immoral & unconscionable — SHAME on Alberta, Canada for their lack of respect, mercy & caring for our Boars — forget your specious “native” defense — it does NOT apply — in truth, in NEVER applies — our Boars have value — let them live.

  16. FUCK Alberta! It’s a hell hole for both non-human and human animals alike!
