“people who harm animals for sport are the lowest form of humanity.”- Rick Jones, sponsor of SB356
This is a highly hypocritical quote from someone who voted in favor of new law specifying sport hunting wolves as the only management method specifically instructed by the legislature. The obvious conclusion is his only interest in animal welfare is for self-promotion.
When asked why his response resorts to demonizing the wolves and accusing them of deserving it for supposedly threatening humans and pets, as if there were actual damage being threatened rather than people whining because they saw a wolf and feel all butthurt because it didn't act like an idiot wolf and dash away attracting the predator; and of "encroachment" he accuses them of that amounts to the Ironwood city manager complaining because someone in the whole city population calls and reports seeing a wolf, somewhere, about once a week.
So blasting those big shy dogs to death and leaving their packs broken and grieving for sport is just fine with Rick. If that's good enough for you animal fighters, go ahead and plan your trips here.

And now the fear of a filthy perversion of justice, nagging, asking me if the lives of the wolves were traded for support for SB356. I truly wish I knew, the horror that such a mean-spirited thing might have been done, something that truly could not have been done even by anyone with the soul of a toad.
But I'll probably never find out just what favor Sen. Jones owed that turned his head away from reality towards political convenience, who owes him now, or if he was truly credulous enough to adopt Sen. Casperson's line that scientists are to be ignored in favor of hunter's anecdotes.
It still is my opinion that wolves are animals, that they were harmed, and that it was for sport. I still do not understand how the senator was able to spout that bald-faced - mistake.
