Very upsetting to see :(.......
This "man", a coward in reality, should be treated as any other murderer and suffer the same consequences as a murderer. Murder is murder regardless of the species and this is totally intolerable! As for the earlier comment about the damage these animals do to others, that is nature, this ass trapping and sending other dogs to feast til the wolf dies is wrong on so many levels, what he is doing is not nature, it is cold and cruel!
Thats so sad.... poor Coyote... he is a barbaric SOB
I realize that coyotes can be a huge problem in rural areas because I had a bf once who had several of his cats killed because they ran free on his rural Oklahoma farm to keep the snake population down, but surely there is a more humane way to go about it?
I see these pictures and it makes me sick to my stomach. I rescued a coyote hybrid after she had been horribly abused. She lived 14 more years after we (she and I) worked to get past her abuse. She was the most gentle, loving, loyal and beautiful spirit of all of my rescues. I don't understand the violence perpetrated on animals. This should be ILLEGAL. This is completely inhumane and cruel to any animal that gets caught in those traps. This person works in wildlife service? He doesn't service wildlife - he perpetrates violence to wildlife.
I` M SURE THAT YOU ARE A LOVELY PERSON WITH A DARK SPOT IN YOUR HEART.AND YOU DON`T KNOW IT .
I WISH ONE DAY YOU REALISE WHAT YOU ARE DOING TO THOSE ANIMALS AND TO ME.MY HEART IS CRYING.I`M REALLY HURT AND YOU DON`T KNOW ME ;AND YOU DON`T KNOW.
ALL MY LOVE.

Wow - seriously, Mr Olson? Frankly, IMNSHO, you shouldn't even *have* this job --
This type of behavior is illegal if perpetrated on a domesticated animal; in fact, many states have felony animal cruelty laws. Why is this considered any different?
Your lack of empathy and humane treatment for the animals you have trapped is not only appalling, but disturbing on MANY levels.
The fact that you're paid with American tax dollars for this kind of activity is even more offensive.
This man should not be allowed near animals or humans. I hope he loses his job.
He is a psychopath and no doubt collects a trophy from his victims.
and this pathetic excuse for a human being is actually on Wyoming's payroll??? What a sick world we have become - - -
What is wrong with people who do this? They are broken. Olson seems to be someone who has dedicated his life to killing and torturing. He is a sick individual, but far from being alone.
DL -- And now for the merits of your comments that coyotes are "out of control," "vicious," and "difficult to kill". I lived in the country too -- and there are plenty of ways to deal with coyote predation without torturing the animals. Ranchers can get paid market value for stock killed by depredating coyotes. Coyotes are particularly vicious predators... they usually wait to eat their quarry until it is dead. Heck, coyotes scare easily if you keep a few llamas around. And saying they are "difficult to kill" is a stretch. Yeah, you could kill a cow easier than a coyote, but Wildlife Services doesn't seem to find the task to be very hard. WS killed nearly 85,000 coyotes last year by trapping them, poisoning them, and shooting them. Let's hope tearing them apart with dogs isn't a new method WS is sanctioning.
DL -- There is a huge disconnect between your comments and that which has made people so angry here. Even accepting that they are "out of control," "vicious," and "difficult to kill" (which I don't, but will do so for sake of this response to your short-sighted comment), Mr. Olson clearly allowed his dogs to torment and tear a coyote apart while stuck in a trap (the pictures included in other news stories are even more gruesome). That's cruel and unacceptable behavior. If he did this on personal time as he says, he should be charged with animal cruelty, and with violating Wyoming's trapping law (which requires immediate disposal of trapped animals, even for animals classified as "predatory" like coyotes). And Wildlife Services should fire him. WS guideline require agents to immediately and humanely euthanize trapped animals. Even if he didn't do this while on the job (which is debatable, since the pics were in a folder labeled "work"), he has no business being a govt agent if acts like this.
Disgusting, coyotes and wolves need a day in court. People like you should be punished. Your actions show depravity and mental illness.
What a truly sick person you are that clearly enjoys making these helpless animals suffer this way. You make me sick!!! So sad to see an animal tortured this way or any other way for that matter. These animals don't deserve this treatment from stupid lowlife humans like the man in this picture. You should be ashamed to show your face! It's heartbreaking for me too see and know that there are people out there who find joy in killing animals. :((
This kind of masturbatory blood lust is unfortunately common. Look around the internet and you will find reams of photos on various forums of the slaughter of all sorts of wildlife (and it's mostly legal) - thousands of bobcats, coyotes, foxes, raccoons, beaver, you name it. Even more disgusting is the bizarre thrill these guys get from watching the animals suffer - like the comment I found on his website (not his comment, however) - "Nothing prettier than a coyote bouncing in a trap".
Doesn't matter of they are out of control or they kill other animals. That's nature , that's how it goes. They use only what God gave them to survive. What this guys did is disgusting . Letting his dogs rip that animal up. Horrible for the coyote but bad for the dogs and humans around the dogs given the rabies factor!!!!! Wish people would use their head before speaking! And who exactly cares when these pictures were taken? The fact that he even did these things suggest he has no business working in wildlife management or any other government and/or animal related job!!
@ DL, you're posts make absolutely NO sense, go smoke some more weed on your OWN time!
Bettert NOT show your pathetic A$$ in Michigan either, Olson. I hope someone evens the score and YOU get exactly the same cruel treatment you inflicted on those defenseless creatures you pretended to protect you sick F@(K!!!!!!!!

Personal or private the pictures show a lack of any fair chase/take ethics. Wy. Wildlife Services should fire him immediately. As a Wyoming resident I certainly do not want him working for me. I do own stock and have had to defend them from predation but I always hoped for a clean kill when I had to. Torture is torture no matter the rational.
