Cabela's sponsors wolf-killing competition in Utah

Mimi's note: I am NOT against all hunting. My father was a hunter. We ate what he brought home and he
never took the life of any animal that was endangered, protected or wasn't going to be eaten as food. He never baited an animal. He hunted - like a man - a man with a sense of honor and fairness to his prey.

Now, call your dog over to you, look into its eyes. What you see reflected back at you is millions of years of evolution - beginning with the ancestors of the wolf. There is NO sport in killing wolves - NONE! Wolves are predators that provide a valuable service to mankind. In order for them to do their job we must leave them alone and allow them to do their job. They are NOT game animals.

If you click on the Cabela's links I have provided it will give you the address of their corporate office if you wish to let them know how you feel about their business sponsoring the killing of wolves - one of which you have in your home and at your feet. Flame me if you wish. I stand my ground.


Cabela's has sponsored wolf-killing derbies -- brutal competitions where contestants are awarded cash and prizes based on how many wolves and other animals they can kill. Proceeds from these derbies are being used to support anti-wolf litigation to block the restoration of life-saving federal protections for these magnificent animals.


Defenders of Wildlife's hard-hitting full-page ad spotlights the support of Cabela’s for wolf-killing predator derbies in Idaho that have been held by the misleadingly named Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife -- the same group that is also lobbying for the awful anti-wolf bill that they are fighting in Utah.

That is horrible. I totally agree with you about hunting. It can be done in a completely humane and ecologically sound way but this is sickening. Like hunting sharks there is no reason.

How come we've never heard of this before! Thank you for a very informative and significant post. I'm too angry for further words right now, and deeply sad!

We are right there with you on this subject. It is murder and some people enjoy the thrill of killing.
These wolves deserve to live on this earth just as much as humans do. I hate those killers.
