Farmer whose husbandry skills led to our wolf hunt neglected his donkeys

So, here's how we got the wolf hunt and keep getting the wolf hunt rammed down our throats in a way that prevents the people from Michigan from objecting to said wolf hunt through a fair vote of the electorate: Tom Casperson (the guy that Tea Party activist and armed stand off maven Doug Sedenquist referred to as a piece of shit) collects stories from people across the Upper Peninsula about how wolves are practically barging into people's homes, drinking their excellent bourbon and leaving the toilet seats up and spreads them around the Legislature. Last fall, we learned that one of them, in which kids at a daycare were allegedly menaced, turned out to be horseshit and that another involving livestock kills turned out to be the product of basically one guy who finds proper husbandry techniques to be a profound bore.

That guy is back in the news.

ONTONAGON — An Upper Peninsula farmer has pleaded no contest in an animal cruelty case involving donkeys provided by state officials to protect his cattle from wolves.

WLUC-TV reports John Koski made the plea Thursday.

Officials say that donkeys put in Koski’s care by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources to combat wolf conflicts at his Ontonagon-area farm were neglected, causing the deaths of two of the animals.

So, the guy whose poor husbandry led to a bunch of his cattle being killed by wolves is given animals to help deal with the problem, and this clown does such a poor job of maintaining them that two die and he gets charged with a crime.

But, the important thing here is that we allow people to killl wolves for fun, and to do that we have to invent reasons so as not to make it look like it.
