Media Ignores The Problem Concentrates on Wolf Death and Demonizes Trapper
There is now an actual solicitation of a death threats against the young man in the now notorious trapper photograph by a person called Dr. Steve, the threat is accompanied by a monetary reward for proof of harm to this innocent man.
It is just unbelievable that the media are concentrating on how awful the photograph is but have said not one word about the threats against this man and the harassment he is suffering at the hands of extremist animal activists.
Nor have the activist media, including Mard Bekoff Ph.D in animal emotions, and author of the above article, said even half this much about the hundreds of maimed and murdered dogs, cats, horses and cattle and wildlife that have suffered much much more than wild wolves are suffering through legal and legitimate trapping and hunting efforts. Nothing! Zero, zip, nada. Although it is somewhat ironic that a PhD. in animal emotions wrote a pandering blog post for wolf advocates in Psychology Today’s blog, not one word did he utter about the human psychology of wolf advocates who seem to be supercharged with energy whenever cattle or pets are slaughtered by wolf packs. The only psychology he was interested in was the trapper’s, which isn’t even in his realm of expertise. Nor did he himself seem to care about the animals that are suffering due to wolf presence and depredation.
I know we have complained about biased media in the past but this is definitely over the top. The following is a link to the death threat. If that link doesn’t work and has been removed. Please see the screen shot of it on this FB link.
Where is the FBI where is the USFS Law Enforcement? Where are the Facebook moderators when this awful behavior is going on? Why is the media only focusing on one aspect of this event and refusing to analyze both sides of the issue. Particularly when there has been absolutely no crime committed by this man. (We refuse to identify him here although his name address and work information have been made public by radical and perhaps dangerous individuals. If you doubt that these people are dangerous, please see the following screen shots depicting the opinions about the man in this photograph alone, there are several pages of them and we have not posted all of them yet.)
