I apologize in advance if this news is too grisly to read, but this is AoW and ever since its founding, it has been a group whose main focus is to spread awareness about canines being persecuted, mistreated, or killed.

This particular article was brought to my attention via NWC Wolfwatcher on Twitter, and I never thought that these following paragraphs could be any more disturbing than anything I've posted before.

Something cruel is happening to dogs in Idaho and the reason for the disturbing acts remains a mystery. According to Tuesday's KHQ News, an estimated 90 dogs have perished after being shot with a high powered rifle, their bodies dumped in a mountainous area north of Bonners Ferry, not far from the Canadian border.

For several months, dogs in the area have been disappearing and many of the bodies have been found in what's being called a "dumping ground" in the rural mountain area. Nobody knows who is behind the cruel shootings or for that matter, why the dogs are being stolen and shot.

The community is on edge because dogs continue to disappear and there is fear that whoever is behind the cruelty could move on to murdering people if they are not stopped, caught and brought to justice.

A local by the name of John Crump says his neighbor's dog Bones went missing in September 2015. He helped him look for it, but when they found Bones they were shocked. "It was a dump site," Crump explains. Along with Bones' body, they found the skeletal remains of other dogs in the mountains near the Canadian border. They say Bones had been shot three times with a high-powered rifle.

Crump was shocked. He started asking around, and discovered that dozens of owners had found their dogs dead. He estimates as many as 90 dogs have been killed so far, and says dogs in the area continue to go missing.

The local news talked to multiple families in the area. The breeds of their dogs varied; mastiffs, poodles, labs, but the way they died was the same. Owners said they had all been shot multiple times with high powered rifles. They also met Vicki, who says her young black lab was shot in the mountains in Bonners Ferry, just four miles south of the border.

No one knows who is doing, or why they're doing it, but they all want to see justice. "I want to see whoever is doing this go to jail," Vicki said.
I write this entry to show not only the US has problems regarding how wolves are treated. So let me write about the sad fate of a wolf again who had to die out of ignorance.

The wolf escaped last Saturday from a zoo in southern Hungary, the fact itself raises some questions. Wolves are not able to well adapt to zoo conditions but they are still kept captive in eastern Europe. Quite obviously measures were not taken to prevent the wolf from escaping and zoo director Miklos Szatyor is liable to that.

When zoo staff noticed the wolf is missing they immediately reported it to local authorities and the nearby forest region was closed so no one were allowed to enter. It must be noted as many of the director's supporters say the animal had to be killed so it won't eat children when it goes hungry. (This is not a serious argument, is it?)

Also it is not know why the wolf was shot with killer gun when staff was nearby, ready to stupefy him, then track him down and getting him back to the zoo. While it's said the animal was acting aggressively, local reports say he'd already turned back and attempted to run away from the men when he was shot at the back.

The last point is, why the staff did not request help from wolf expert Zoltan Horkai who is well-know in the region and whose experience had already saved many wolves' life.

The questions are cumulating as much as the signatures for the petition - director Miklos Szatyor must resign as the manager of the Zoo of Pécs, Hungary. As more proof is gathered, it gains evidence this sad case was not self-defence but mere murder and the director should be banned from ever dealing with animals.

Petition is here:
