    I am gravely concerned about the injury, capture, and torture of the young female wolf by Cody Roberts of Daniel, Wyoming. The fact that running down wolves and coyotes by snowmobile is considered an acceptable hunting practice is cruel, unethical and cannot possibly be considered actual hunting.

    In addition, the events leading up to the pup’s death, the sadistic and sickening behavior of Roberts speaks to a deep-seated hatred of predators making the current weak, and permissive legislation completely ineffective in managing wolves ethically and responsibly. So many of the speakers including law enforcement spoke for the need for better legislation and protection.

    Roberts must be held accountable for his reprehensible behavior beyond a mere $250.00 fine. That fine is an insult to concerned citizens everywhere and casts an ugly stain on the state of Wyoming the WYGF, the sheriff’s office and the governor. Please change the law to reflect the reverence with which wildlife should be held and make an example of Cody Roberts. I truly believe that this will not go away unless there is change and prosecution. Roberts has become the poster child of Wyoming and not in a god way. People all over the world are appalled. Thank you.
