Crying for Wolves: Memorial Set for Animals Killed During Statewide Hunt

The Alliance for Animals will be holding a memorial for the 117 wolves killed during Wisconsin's first hunt in fall.

The Alliance for Animals will be holding a memorial for the 117 wolves killed during Wisconsin's first hunt in fall.

Deanna Devaul, an "active" member of the Alliance for Animals, is organizing the event, according to the organization's website. The event will take place at 4:30 p.m. Friday in front of the State Natural Resources building in Madison, and will include candles, bell ringing and a poem for the wolves.

"I know that I am not alone in wanting to honor the 117 wolves who were killed in the Wisconsin hunt this year," Devaul wrote on a Facebook page created to publicize the event. "It is our intention to symbolize the wolves' lives and deaths at this memorial."

Wisconsin's first wolf hunt got off to a controversial start, with a lawsuit, filed in Dane County Circuit Court, asking the court "to stop the DNR from authorizing the use of dogs for wolf hunting until reasonable rules are established to protect dogs from injury or death, according to a press release from the society. Other plaintiffs include outdoorsmen, hunters, volunteer trackers, and other Wisconsin animal welfare organizations."

The hunt started Oct. 15 and runs through the end of February; .

@Richard: When liberals demand such extermination will we be able to use guns? Probably not, unless we can still use the musket mounted above the fireplace.

To All: I believe "ann" was a plant, someone who was trying to be over-the-top in order to make the opposition look bad.
