Tree-hugging leftists, progressive frog-lickers, and insufferable greenies have had a collective hissy fit over the news that Governor Greg Gianforte killed a wolf in February and didn’t receive a citation from wildlife officials.
One would have thought, from their reaction – consisting of outrage and moral preening – that the governor had murdered a human. But it turns out, he was only engaging in reproductive justice for wolves, and they couldn’t be angrier about it.
Apparently, the governor trapped a wolf on a friend’s ranch outside Yellowstone National Park and then shot it, before taking the head and hide (note: an informed hunch says it’s more likely the ranch employees caught the wolf and called in the governor for its ceremonial dispatch from this mortal coil). However, the governor appears to have turned himself in to wildlife officials for not attending a three-hour required course for wolf-trapping and the wolf had been collared by officials prior to its untimely demise.
The Associated Press reports…
Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte was given a warning by state wildlife officials after killing a radio-collared wolf near Yellowstone National Park in February without first taking a mandated trapping education course.
Gianforte trapped and killed the wolf about 10 miles north of the park on a ranch owned by a Sinclair Broadcasting Group executive.
He body-slams liberal reporters. He kills wolves. It’s probably because he’s the alpha male, and liberals know it.
One liberal commenter questioned…
Indeed, the governor could have caught-and-released the wolf, a time-treasured tradition in Montana in which wolves are trapped for sport, then released into the wild after hugging it out with their human, making fast friends of each other, and promising never to eat another head of livestock. Because this is how wildlife works, amiright?
Meanwhile, fifteen-hundred Montanans are caught-and-not-released each year by Planned Parenthood and – unfortunately – their snares are still legal.
