Over 250 Wolves Killed in Wisconsin as Season Ends

Exposing the Big Game


DNR Has Ended Wolf Hunting Seasoncopyrighted wolf in water

The state has very nearly reached it’s wolf hunt quota of 251, which has prompted the DNR to end the season.

A flood of wolves killed by hunters prompted the Department of Natural Resources to close the state’s wolf hunting season at 5 p.m. on Monday.

Hunters stepped up their shooting of wolves in northwest Wisconsin over the weekend, and the state is now very close to its harvest quota of 251 wolves. Hunters using dogs are responsible for almost all the weekend kills, and the state says the number of wolf deaths where dogs did the chasing is about 30.

Tom Hauge of the DNR says dog use over the last three weeks apparently went pretty well. “[It] seems to have been performing within normal side bars as far as we know,” says Hauge. “If there are problems out there, they may…

20 Cats Found Tortured, Burned and Murdered

Our Compass

Please click HERE to sign petition asking for harshest penalty

Background, Source Care2
By Judy Molland

Warning: this is the most sickening story of cruelty to animals that I have ever written about.

Last Friday, police in Santa Fe, Texas raided a house with the intention of finding drugs. They succeeded: during the search of the home of 39-year-old Brain Cheek and his 38-year-old wife Veronica Springer, investigators found roughly nine grams of crystal methamphetamine, a scale for measuring the drugs, packaging materials for sales and a stolen all-terrain vehicle (ATV) valued at $14,000.

That wasn’t all they found.

From WebProNews:

Unfortunately, as the search went on, investigators later found a grueling and morbid discovery: 20 dead cats, ranging from kittens to fully grown mature cats. Police stated that the dead cats had all appeared to undergo various forms of torture before their demise.

Investigators stated that there…

Take Offensive “Duck Dynasty” Off the Air!

Exposing the Big Game

Petition by

Linda Camac

Philadelphia, PA

Duck Dynasty is an offensive and egregious show that encourages and glamorizes violence toward wildlife.

On a recent episode, a den of beavers (including new babies) were blown to smitherines as the cast laughed uproariously. They are teaching youthful viewers that non-human animals have no value; they use animals for recreational killing, and ‘entertainment’ while animals die in earnest.

Suspending Phil Robertson for his insulting remarks against the gay community is not enough — the whole show is a embarassing display of redneck ignorance, and twisted values.

Let’s not waste airtime glorifying brute force, and cruelty, making psuedo stars of those who do not respect human diversity or the sanctity of nature and woodland creatures.

Just look who has come forward to defend Phil Robertson….none other than jaw-dropping mean Sarah Palin, AKA ‘Cruella de Palin’!

Captain Paul Watson’s Message to Patriarch Duck Dunce

Exposing the Big Game

My Message to the Patriarch Duck Dunce

From one so called Reality TV Star to Another

Captain Paul Watson of Animal Planet’s Whale Wars sends a message to Phil Robertson of A&E’s Duck Dynasty.

Dear Phil,

I am confused. How can you equate homosexuality with bestiality? You’re hardly in a position to say such a thing when your business is manufacturing duck mating calls that essentially declare that you want to fuck a duck.

You are flirting with bestiality Phil.

You not only seduce defenseless innocent ducks, you kill them when they approach you. Sort of reminds me of Ted Bundy.

You are also seducing ducks through fraudulent behavior. Essentially you are lying to the ducks. And you’re peddling duck seduction devices in a quack-pot scheme to enrich yourself on the suffering and death of hundreds of thousands of innocent ducks.

I picked up a copy of the New Testament…

Today in Speciesism: John Mayer Wearing Fur

The Paw Report

Now, I don’t know John Mayer, but I imagine that for him, as it is with most people, he wouldn’t (knowingly) wear a dog or a cat. But yet somehow people like John Mayer justify mistreating and exploiting other animals for the sake of a coat or another article of clothing. A very ugly coat at that. But even if the coat was gorgeous, I’d still shake my head at this blatant speciesist behavior.  It is problematic to believe that it’s okay to spare one species, e.g. dogs, from being a fur coat, but thinking it’s okay to torture, skin, and kill another. Animals are not ours to be worn. If you believe they are, then you are a speciesist, and if so, you should think about where, and why, you draw your ethical lines at which species it is appropriate to cause harm to. At dogs? At cats? Foxes?…

Last Chance To Comment to the USFWS on Wolves

Exposing the Big Game

To those who want to send the USFWS a quick note on their plan to delist wolves, here’s the email address to their comment form: http://www.regulations.gov/#!submitComment;D=FWS-HQ-ES-2013-0073-30560


In addition to written comments earlier this year, I just sent them the following comment:

In light of the fact that Western and Great Lakes states have proven time and again that they can’t be counted on to manage an endangered species such as wolves fairly–Wisconsin uses hounds to run wolves to exhaustion; Montana changes their wolf hunting rules, to the benefit of hunters, on a regular basis; Wyoming treats wolves like vermin outside the park; Idaho has hired a professional hunter/trapper to kill off two packs within a Wilderness Area at the behest of trophy elk hunters and now has added wolves to a coyote contest hunt–I respectfully urge you not to delist…

Letter Annihilates “America’s Pest Problem”

Exposing the Big Game

The following letter from a friend and fellow blogger/photographer, Ingrid Taylar, completely annihilates Time Magazine’s recent anti-wildlife article, “America’s Pest Problem…

Dear Editor:

David von Drehle’s piece, “America’s Pest Problem,” barely touches on the crux of the issue which is our own exponentially growing population combined with our gluttonous appetite for land and resources, all of which present wild animals with fewer options. He describes our ecological role in heroic terms, without delving into the much more complicated morass of human intrusion. We encroach on wild spaces, sterilize formerly complex habitats with subdivisions and lawns, raze and trample forests to provide grazing lands for cattle, pollute water sources with our industrial production of food and materials, poison critical plants like milkweed out of existence for Monarch butterflies and bees, build roadways through critical migration corridors, produce trash to the degree that there is no feasible way to dispose of it…

Cancel the upcoming show “Amazing America with Sarah Palin”!

Cancel the upcoming show "Amazing America with Sarah Palin"

  • Petitioning Jeff Paro

This petition will be delivered to:

CEO, InterMedia Outdoors
Jeff Paro
President, InterMedia Outdoors
Willy Burkhardt

Regarding your upcoming show “Amazing America with Sarah Palin”—America has already been “amazed” by Sarah Palin and her lack of compassion, and her complete relish of the animals she kills with unabashed fevor!  

Palin has taken advantage of her half-governesship, by glamorizing the killing of iconic wolves from aircraft.  As half-governor she offed a bounty for every left, front wolf paw surrendered—the wolf is a necessary predator for a healthy ecosystem; she lobbied for years to get the endangered polar bear kicked off of the Endangered Species List — despite the impossible challenges facing the polar bear to even survive — loss of habitat, starvation, and drownings.  She failed at her attempts to doom the polar bear in the USA, so she continues to trophy hunt in Canada.

Wildlife activists outraged at TIME’s cover story this month Special

Exposing the Big Game

The cover of this month’s issue of TIME depicts a young female deer below the headline “America’s Pest Problem.” The wildlife activist community is in an uproar over the article many see as factually inaccurate and something more fit for an op-ed
The article does appear to be advancing an agenda, as the last line in the lead paragraph on the TIME website reads “Why wildlife in the U.S. needs stronger management.”  The article’s full title is “America’s Pest Problem: It’s time to cull the herd.”  Whether intentional or not, David Von Drehle’s article has sparked controversy.

Almost immediately, activists took to the internet expressing their outrage. The article’s dateline is Dec 9, 2013, but is available online now. A Facebook event page is already set up to encourage people to write physical letters to TIME. The event page has this in its…

“Time” Has it Backwards, People Are the Pests

Animal lovers unite! Let’s boycott the self-serving ass clowns over at Time Magazine who promote the murder of innocent animals by referring to them as “Pests” and glossing over their intent with fancy words like “Cull”.

Middle Finger to Time Magazine.

Exposing the Big Game

By now, many of you have seen the outrageous Time magazine article egotistically entitled, “America’s Pest Problem: It’s Time to Cull the Herd.” If so, you probably shared my first reaction, which was:

How haughty to label the recovering animal species from whom we stole this land “pests” whenever they cross paths with the real pests, the most overpopulated and rapidly expanding, exploitive, environmentally reckless, imperialistic, pretentious, self-centered, self-important, self-aggrandizing, stuck-up, conceited, condescending –in a word, arrogant—urchins ever to emerge from the primordial ooze, namely humans.

As ethologist Marc Bekoff wrote in a recent blog post,
“There are so many things that are profoundly disturbing in [the Time magazine] essay I’m not sure where to begin or just which points to highlight. Some of the messages I received had quotes from this essay that at once shocked and saddened me. Kill, kill, and kill some more; that’s…

The Ultimate Pillow Fight

Our Compass

How do down feathers often make it into pillows, comforters, and jackets?



Terrified, screaming birds are grabbed by their wings and pinned by their necks as workers painfully tear their feathers from their bodies, often leaving gaping wounds that are sewn shut without any pain relief.

Down is used for pillows, bedding, coats, camping equipment, and more–but it’s super-easy to avoid by always choosing cruelty-free down alternatives!
