 “Killing animals is so much fun isn’t it?

I mean what’s not to love about a wolf being tortured!”


An American Wildlife Hater




Music: Road To Hell




Last month, a U.S. Forest Service employee

Laid out his many wolf traps up in the Rockies

He got a call one morning from a fellow trapper

“You got one in a leg trap, and this one is a Biggie!”


By the time that he got there, a joyous crowd had now formed

Several of them were taking pot shots at this suffering animal

The wolf stood there - trapped, wounded, bleeding in the snow

And the happy government employee yelled - “Don’t that beat all!”


This government trapper soon blogged about his kill:

‘Big Black Male, that went about a hundred pounds;

This one is gonna make me a real good Wall Hanger!’

Today, this Wolf Killer, is now a hero in his hometown


Yet strangely enough, until last spring, wolves had been protected

By our very own federal law, under The Endangered Species Act

But a very clever, very greedy, Congressman quickly changed this

By attaching a tiny rider to a humongous federal bill, just like that


You see, this Congressman gets a ton of money from the wolf haters

Elk hunters, who do not want to share their trophies, with any animal

And, corporate mining and cattle concerns, which hate everything ‘wild’

They rule our public lands and national parks now, and they want them all


And today, the same employees who were protecting the wolves last year

Are now the very ones bragging about their joyous wolf kills and trophies

Hundreds of wolves have already been trapped, and tortured, and killed

We have hideously become a very greedy, sadistic, animal hating, species


And very sadly to me, far more people are now praising our killing ways,

Than rising to the defense of our now hunted, and tortured, wildlife today.



-The Road To Hell We Are On Now, Is Already Covered In Their Blood-



©Spring 2012, Mr. Ed

Sick! It's inconceivable how these people's minds work...I wonder how they'd feel if the tables were turned...and one day they just might be...

This is so heartbreaking. Why does Man kill innocent animals, it makes no sense. It makes me so sick that people actually do these things.

Reviewed by Ronald Hull 4/11/2012
You are absolutely right. The reversal has come quite quickly. I remember when the only good wolf was a dead wolf (or was that, Indian). We pick our bad actors to suit our fancy and everyone joins in because either they are stupid or just plain unthinking. The benefits that wild wolves bring (or any wild animal), far outweighs the slight risk of some poor human or some poor rancher suffering loss or injury. It is time that everybody wises up. I for one, will keep preaching, and hopefully, reaching, the dead wood out there.

I feel so helpless knowing that my floods of tears and my most valiant efforts cannot stop these excuses for human beings in their tracks!
If people are treated this way there is a public outcry, yet we are encouraged to treat other living things so disgustingly. It's beyond cruel. There are not the words to describe this deplorable behaviour.
