Instead of Congratulations, Death Threats Come to Successful Wisconsin Wolf Hunter

There were four wolves taken in the first 24 hours of Wisconsin’s state-managed wolf hunt that began October 15. The last of the four first-day wolves was taken at 6:15 pm on Monday by Dennis Nitz of Boyd, Wisconsin who was hunting from a natural blind with his wife. He had been one of the lucky few who managed to simply get a permit to hunt the predator. Out of 20,272 permit applications, Nitz was one of 1,160 whose name was drawn in a computerized lottery to partake in the hunt.

He had taken the first day of the season off of work and posted up in a circular blind of discarded treetops in the Eau Claire County forest, according to the Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinel. He played a rabbit-in-distress recording to attract the wolves and less than an hour-and-a-half later, a wolf had presented himself broadside to Nitz at about 47 yards away. He took his shot and successfully harvested the animal, sending the carcass to the DNR for testing per requirements and the pelt to a taxidermist for a life-sized mounting.

He put up a photograph of his kill on Facebook that same night and it didn’t take long before he started receiving death threats. In fact, only minutes passed before he received his first death threat.

    One wonders what would happen if these so-called animal rights activist put their energy into helping people. There are so many needy people in this country. Seems they only care about animal, not their fellows., Sick folks indeed.

    Well I’m sure I’m not the first, but I am certainly happy to convey my congratulations. Job well done, and straight to hell with bat s**t crazy liberals who place the life of an animal before that of a human.

    I’ve seen pictures of a hound that was separated from his pack and killed by a wolf pack. It was not a pretty sight of a dog that was really great with kids !! They are a brutal animal and need to be controlled. The hound was one of my namesake Wisconsin nephews and he was hunting a cat in Wyoming where he was a guide.

    First, congratulations to Dennis. Unfortunately, he is reaping the consequences of an epedemic in this country.
    It is sad that so many Americans operate on emotions rather than informed and sound reasoning. Hunting seasons are there to “manage” the wildlife which helps to keep down disease and other problems that arise when overpopulations of animals exist. It seems to be this way in all aspects of American life. At one time the big push was to “get in touch with your emotions.” Unfortunately, we have gone beyond getting in touch, we have yielded to them and thrown reason out the window.

    These same lame brain, Obama bath water drinking lemmings SUPPORT Abortion that kill 3000+ kids each and every day in the most gruesome methods of deaths ever devised by man. They foam at the mouth if anyone dare oppose Abortion.. Yet they whine about TREES, WHALES, WOLVES and Little PUPPIES AND KITTY”S miss treatment, What F**KING Hypocrites they are.. Next time they chow down on a piece of meat, they need to ask themselves how it got on their plate, no it didn’t come from the kitchen lame brain..

    Death threats are unacceptable, but, personally, I disagree with the killing of wolves. As long as they are not a threat to the community, then they should be left alone. I am an animal lover, & staunchly against animal abuse. But, I think that sometimes, saving an animal’s habitat should be 2nd in importance of taking care of human lives. I live in Tennessee, & we have coyotes here, but for the most part they are not a problem. The farmers know though, that they are around, so they have taken precautions to prevent problems. Guard dogs, etc. And, they also know they can shoot them, if one is a threat. Same with the bears. IF one is a threat & an immediate danger, they know they can legally shoot it. But, I too am sick of liberals having such two faced stands on stuff. They go all to pieces over an animal, or tree, or bug, but don’t even blink at murdering a baby!
