This is perhaps
the only entirely serious piece you will find on this site, but when I
heard about what was happening, I just had to stop what I was doing
(working on another Web site), and devote a few hours to constructing this
page. It is the least I could do.
On the morning of February 12, 2010, a good friend
of mine left a
disturbing phone mail message for me. To boil it down to its simplest
terms, he said that Cabella's (the world's largest sporting goods chain) was sponsoring
a wolf hunt out West, and offering a bounty for the pelts of dead
"Well", I said to
myself, "Art's finally gone off the deep-end". So I called him, and he
reaffirmed that no, he didn't have one too many shots of Grappa (Italian
moonshine), and said that it was true about the wolf hunt. I quickly did
a Web search, and found that
wolves were recently taken off the
endangered species list in several states. I then signed on to Cabella's
Web site and got into a short chat:
And so I
learned that one of my favorite online camping goods stores was, indeed
sponsoring this "varmint hunt". They won't be getting any more of MY
business, and I'm deleting any links to them from all the Web sites I
Ever since the
early so-called "Wild-West" days in this country, we've had to contend
with a bunch of Cretin-Yahoo, Redneck, stupid, trigger-happy
mother-fuckers who – in their own unique suck-dick-drawl vernacular
"Ahhh jusss lhyaaak-ta huuunt"
(translation: "I just like to hunt").
Well, hunting is
ONE thing. Purging your farm of varmints and predators who would
decimate your chicken coop, or kill your livestock is another. However,
the Assholes we're talking about here are NOT farmers, and they don't
own any livestock; they're a bunch of dude-ranch wannabe-"sportsmen"
who, for lack of anything constructive to do with their leisure time,
load up their weapons and go off "hunting". For the "thrill of the
hunt", they will kill anything that moves that they figure they can get
away with killing... just for
Unlike the poachers in Africa who to this day, hunt elephants for their
tusks and kill gorillas for their pelts (and for their hands which are fashioned into
conversation-piece ashtrays), these American-born "hunters" make no
profit from their "sport"; they don't feed their families with the meat
– they just want to go out and
Enter the bounty
It isn't bad
enough that these Neanderthal-IQ individuals just go out and
the opportunity arises, now Cabella's, among others, is providing
incentive for these dipshits to go out and slaughter these magnificently
beautiful creatures – one site even goes so far as to call this murder
of one of God's most beautiful creatures a
The wolf and the
coyote are close cousins of domesticated dogs. Although feral animals
cannot be easily domesticated,
our pets – creatures we hold to be family
members, are not that much different. I'm an animal lover, and I
particularly love dogs (except the ones that look like rats) and
anything that looks like a dog. I can't imagine the mentality of someone
who would intentionally kill one of these animals!
The Assholes in government believe THEY can "manage" nature better than
it can manage itself. Surely the Endangered Species Act saved many of
these animals from extinction – but you have to remember – it is those
"just gotta' go
kill me some shit today"
so-called "sportsmen" that upset the natural balance to begin
with. THEY are the ones that need to be hunted to extinction. Want to go
hunting? Put away your rifles, take off all your clothes, prowl around
on all-fours and go grab a wolf
by the nape of the neck with your bare TEETH.... now there's a fuckin'
SPORT for ya! That's a MAN'S sport!
Be a MAN!
I, for one, will NEVER buy so much as a fuckin' shoelace from Cabella's
Well, Art, I guess
a bunch of other Assholes to send
packages of elephant shit to.
