POLL: Should the wolf hunting contest in Idaho be stopped?

In what has to be the one of the most bloodthirsty post-Christmas festivities yet, Idaho’s announced a wolf and coyote slaughter contest for all the family.

And it really does mean “all the family” – children as young as ten can enter the competition being held on the weekend of 28-29 December.

In this celebration of tastelessness and death, prizes will be awarded for such “achievements” as most female coyotes killed, biggest wolf and so on.

Should the wolf hunting contest in Idaho be stopped?

Both wolves and coyotes play essential roles in the ecosystem – they are not pests. Wolves actually need increased protection. Even if numbers did need to be reduced, which they don’t, shooting these beautiful animals should only ever be done by professionals.  Treating it as family entertainment is ridiculous.

We invite you to vote whether the wolf hunting contest in Idaho be stopped. Please vote and also leave your comments at the bottom of this page.

Have you all gone insane and to expose this to children as a family fun day! What horrors do you instill in your society?

Kayla Nicole

I don't understand how somebody could kill slaughter such a beautifulpeaceful kind gentle creature and none the less let their children do it Is beyond me and takes some really sick human beings well nothing "humane" about it and there was to be something seriously wrong with somebody to do that to a wolf or any other creature. It breaks my heart I wish I could save them all.

Robin Hamilton

Hunters should hunt each other for sport and leave the wolves in peace! The officials in charge of wildlife management continue to grossly underestimate the number of wolves required to maintain sufficient gene diversity for survival.

Kimberly Harrison

We are losing our wild life. All animals deserve to live. Humans have no need what so ever biologically. We almost killed the wolves to extinction and we have not learned from our past and are doing the same thing today. We get everything we need from plants. Before it is to late stop the slaughter. Please watch Forks over knives and Earthlings and Cowspiracy.

If you are wondering what kind of people enjoy torturing and killing wolves, look at the membership of facebook groups like "Lobo Watch", "Save Western Wildlife" (oxymoron) – who's membership (with few exceptions) is a "who's who" of serial wolf killers and which is a front for elk hunters posing as a conservation group – or "Dogs of War" which is one of their goon squads. These groups are eco-terrorist organizations which openly brag about how much damage they do to wildlife which doesn't fit their agenda, and harrass and intimidate anyone who opposes them. The fact that FB allows… Read more »

humans with power and money will always be the problem and will always be the ones to fix the problem. But they wont because they are brain dead jealous cowards and control freaks. Simple as that. Don't vote them in.

Rivard Caroline

I simply cannot understand why anyone feels the need to kill a wolf. I think it is criminal! When is this ever going to stop?

Ellen Mass

There is NO excuse for this wholesale slaughter. I can understand having to use lethal methods for a wolf that repeatedly goes after livestock. But hunting just for the sake of killing is barbaric and deserves nothing but contempt!

Sandy Lee

This is just people wanting to show off and act like they own the world. They are really low life that just want to kill.

Karen Hall

Let's make it a requirement that the FBI does a background check on all those bloodthirsty idiots beforehand. That should whittle down the number in attendance.

Cathy Mae Schull

THEY NEED TO STOP !! THIS IS MURDER PLAIN AND SIMPLE , AND THEY WILL ANSWER FOR IT BY OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN ,JUST LIKE THEY WOULD A HUMAN ! AND LIKE I SAID IN THEIR NEXT LIFE THEIR SOUL WILL GO INTO THE VERY BEING THEY HAVE FUN MURDERING, CAUSE THE HUMAN BODY IS JUST A SHELL NOT THE REAL YOU, AND OUR WOLVES HAS A SOUL TOO, THEIR JUST IN THE BODY OF A BEAUTIFUL WOLF ,I COULD ONLY BE SO LUCKY/BLESSED TO BE IN WOLF FORM IN MY NEXT LIFE THATS HOW MUCH I RESPECT AND LOVE… Read more »

Im sorry but I think its bizarre, authorities allowing people to act like psychopaths and its ok? Its never okay to enjoy killing? I mean if you are that way you could join the war against ISIS in Syria or theres plenty of other places you could go to kill. But no, people who enjoy this are cowards.

David Sperry

"Both wolves and coyotes [and every other animal on the planet] play essential roles in the ecosystem – they are not pests." ANYONE who thinks and/or believes this isn't true is only trying to rationalize their stupidity for enjoying a "blood sport".

John Meszaros

I couldn't have put it better…the BLM is an evil power that only causes suffering.

Julie S McGee

After reading your pathetic attempt at goading people who want arseholes such as yourself banned from killing animals, I really feel you need to spend more time learning some proper grammar dear! I can tell a lot about one by reading comments & you truly do sound inbred ! Smh 🙂

Leigh Lofgren

This is beyond imagination and must be stopped – what is wrong with people who do this?

Susan Holmes

No killing please.

Paul Thorn

The thought of any one wanting to kill these majestic pack animals is totally beyond me. Yes they will kill domestic animals but that in itself should not be an excuse to eradicate every last one of them.

Angie Melton

Please stop the killing of these beautiful creatures. They are not doing any harm. Not doing anything but living their lives as they were born to do. Please stop. Make hunting them illegal. The only time the life of an animal should be taken is if it is going to provide food and even then, the animal should be respected for the sacrifice of it's life.

Jackie Dow

This is very upsetting, I just had my high content wolf dogs spayed and nuetered, and there were pedigree papers from Idaho, with many ancestors being 100%. Maybe I should have bred them , just so there might be some relatives left, even though they have a little malamute in them.

Mike Hague

Sick psychotic bastards. This is just killing for the sake of it.

How tragic a species are we that we believe we can inflict such horrors on animals who have as much right to life as we do!

Michele Hodge

Everything is going to be endangered before much longer, people will hunt these creatures to extinction, I am an avid animal lover and think this is disgusting to be robbing future generations of these lovely creatures, stop this now and let them regenerate !!

Leigh Lofgren

What is happening to our society that allows this and thinks it's perfectly OK? How sick and deranged must you be to do this, let alone involve children. Such sick people and this must be stopped and I agree with some of the other comments – give the wolves gun and let them shoot back

June Bexton

I would like to shoot all the murdering bastards and hang them on barb wire then the world would be short of a few scumbags

Minako Sargent-fukuda

every Animal is needed all have a thing to do , its like a ring you break a link and all falls usunder , it is already proven that the wolfs have bought a positive outcome in many areas, leave the idiotic testosterone full stupid males go wanting if they are so full of energy have them plant trees clean waterways with safety , do constructive work , help at home, but stop killing Animals cause they want it, this is not a good enough reason to do any of it, wolfes and the other Animals are our heritage kids… Read more »

ALL HUNTING FOR SPORT needs to STOP; ALL TRAPPING needs to STOP; Kid's need to be taught to have love & respect for these innocent ones. If only people would put aside their pride, humble themselves & learn from these ; We have a responsibility to take care of these magnificently created ones, not kill them or teach young eyes to see and/or participate in this evil act; Enough; Let these innocent ones live their lives the way they were created to live;

Of course! Killing for the sake of fun is murder!

Florence Mnd

Yes it should be stopped

Hester Moulton

How many animals are you going to kill BLM. You can't manage. This is absolutely diabolical and sick. What are you people thinking?

Anne Grice

Killing wild life for fun and entertainment is a sickness which humans must be cured of because no intelligent thinking productive humans would find killing wildlife as contributing to society in a meaningful way!! Idaho needs to be dragged out of the dark ages and come into the 21st century so that the younger generation can have a healthy happy future and not build their life around senseless killings of animals and be obsessed with killings helpless animals which no doubt have impact on animal cruelty to domestic animals !!Once a killer, what do you think is likely to happen… Read more »

it never should have started…….the wolves, coyotes, bears, cougars an all other wildlife should remain wild and free and not be hunted or killed for the sake of killing

Lynn Falcione Geraty

Beyond time that we forced man to "evolve" in his thinking about hunting. Animals have packs (families), where everyone has a job. Animals have feelings. Killing for the sake of killing is beyond cruel. Making a contest out of it—barbaric! Come on hunting states—get your head out of your asses on this!

John Meszaros

Another sick minded group that don't have any idea of the state of affairs our wildlife is in ! Let's have a vote on hunting hunters !

It won't matter…You try to stop it we'll just have another one. It's just like your stupid online petitions…They also don't mean jack shit. Oh, and your boycotts…Those too are as worthless as the air you breath. You'll be replaced by hundreds of thousands of people. Dumb asses, you'll never learn. And another thing…Something you dill rods also don;t know but most of the Idaho potatoes are grown in Eastern Washington State! Another epic boycott fail!

These animals need our voice !!!
