Here are pictures and information about Wolves that have been oppressed, tortured and killed througout time. It shows the horrors that Humans have and continue to do to Wolves. Although not many pictures are of USFWS and DNR people responsible for the murders they commit, these pictures show what happens when anyone murders or oppresses a Wolf.
Please stop the murder and torture and oppression of Wolves today!
We start with a photo of a Wolf who was murdered in the constant slaughtering of Wolves that has been going on for a decade in Alaska. The Department of Fish and Game in league with Governors and Hunting Outfitters have slaughtered many Wolves. For more information go to the link below.
Kei, the Wolf, from Okinawa Zoo, was forced to live in a 7 x 5 enclosure for the longest time, more than a decade.
Now as of this year, she has a bigger enclosure, and has the ability to leave the public and go in her indoor enclosure.
Pictures of the Wolf Kurt from Turkey who has been tortured by Humans for amusement. These pictures are from 2005.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has murdered many Wolves in livestock issues since Wolves have been reintroduced back to the United States. Here are some of the most notorious. The Department of Natural Resources also murders Wolves along with Wildlife Services.
Ed Bangs, a notorious Wolf Murderer for the USFWS who is smiling proudly after collaring a Wolf. The last phase before that Wolf is murdered!
Ed Bangs, wolf recovery coordinator for the FWS in Helena, Montana, believes limited hunting would be beneficial for the wolf population. Bangs told the Associated Press on May 9 that when people are allowed to hunt, they learn to respect an animal more. Feelings of stewardship replace feelings of resentment, Bangs said.

Another Wolf that was collared and most likely later murdered by famous Wolf murderer Mike Jimenez of the USFWS. He like Ed Bangs ignore the value of Predator Friendly Ranching Practices and Non-Lethal Methods only. Once men who originally helped reintroduced Wolves to Yellowstone now have become souless murderers of countless Wolves.
Carter Niemeyer of the Idaho USFWS, who now retired is doing trapping and field biology for the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. He was notorious for countless murders and violence. Once again he too failed to use non-lethal methods only and Predator Friendly Ranching Practices in livestock issues involving Wolves. He had this to say on the subject.
"Killing is just one aspect of, of predator management and it's been time-tested over decades. Killing predators to me is the easiest thing we can do. We have the technology to kill predators very effectively and in great numbers. The society we live in today I think we owe society as managers the choices and that's why we or why I support non-lethal tools so that there are those individuals out there who ranch, raise livestock, that want to choose whether they want predators killed or not. So I think we just need to keep an open mind and and look at various solutions.
Absolutely if you got an example of wolves for instance. Wolves are going to be killed. It's unavoidable that wolves are going to have to be managed and at some point if the recovery effort is as successful as it's been it's reasonable to assume that wolves will be harvested or culled through hunting and other harvest measures."

Wolf killed in France and paraded on Television in 2005.
Hunters who are a part of outfitters or solo have been slaughtering Wolves for many reasons. Here are some pictures of their 'handiwork.'
A Hunter who has murdered a Wolf and parades it happily.
Wolves hunted by hunters would capture and later skin them!
This is what happened to one Wolf that was skinned. For what real purpose is unknown but if a skinned Wolf is for donation, this is something that in principle is not just unethical, but is a part of something truly sinister..
Two Wolf corpses taken by the hunting outfitter who killed them in Norway over the recent years. Culling of Wolves has plauged Norway for awhile.
The Past holds horrors just as much as the present that have afflicted the Wolf population.
Wolf murdered by the Rangers of the 260th French mountain Infantry Regiment in 1916
Yes, even Eskimo's killed Wolves too. Sick rituals exists among all cultures to murder animals brutally. (Pic from The Wolf of North America pt. 1)
Many camps existed during the War Against the Wolf in America, where government agents not much far off from today were a headquarters for their murders. Although the USFWS, DNR and WS don't parade their corpses, they still murder many Wolves.
Wolves were poisoned by Wolfers.
These were the instruments they used to do it. Strychnine was the primary means. (Picture from The Wolves of North America Pt. 1)
Here was the result of their 'efforts'. (Pic from Vicious)
If this wasn't bad enough, hideous techniques soon evolved.
1) In the 1800s in the United States, people set fire to thousands of acres of land to get rid of Wolves. Forests, crops, and more were burned alive.
2) In the 1900s in the U.S., the disease known as mange was used to infect captured Wolves in the hopes of spreading to other Wolves. Not only did Wolves suffer, but livestock and other animals.
3) Hunters who captured Wolves did many horrible things to them before releasing them. Such as cutting off their Achilles tendons, wiring their jaws shut, or even sawing off their lower jaws. Since they could not survive because they couldn't eat, or even move, they would endure a death that no one would want to experience.
4) People have burned alive Wolves through the use of gasoline.
5) In the present in Saudi Arabia, Wolves are either murdered or hung from a tree having their eyes gouged in order to avert evil spirits.
(Facts from Neither God Nor Devil: Rethinking Our Perceptions of Wolves by Eva-Lena Rehnmark pg. 118)
6) Techniques such as picture up above illustrates, pups were captured so their cries of help would be answered and those who came would be murdered. Pups would also be strangled to death.
Other techniques were used:
Other hideous techniques of the past. One must note that 'control' is the term back then for murdering Wolves. It is just the same now in the modern era, used by the USFWS, DNR and WS.

In the current era, the USFWS in America along with DNRs use aerial shooting of Wolves, like in Alaska, to murder Wolves. As with the USFWS, it is a part of their Wolf 'Recovery' Program. Until humans learn to live with Wolves peacefully, more casulties and oppression will not cease. That is why you viewer must do your part to help the Wolves.
Wolves are also murdered for their skins to be sold for decoration. One seller Sell_Thru_Me_Sales_and_Consignment sells Wolf Skins and Skulls.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Helping through Action Alerts is one way. Promoting facts about Wolves and literature as well as films about them to as many people as you can is another.
The dead must not be forgotten and we must forge a future of peace where no Wolf will be tortured or murdered. A future where Humans can live in peace with Wolves.
