Trapped wolf photo sparks outrage, threats

Posted By on Fri, Mar 30, 2012 at 9:47 AM

The director of the Missoula-based anti-trapping organization Footloose Montana received what appears to be a death threat directed at family members after she posted to the internet photos of a live Idaho wolf caught in a foot-hold trap, John Adams of the Great Falls Tribune reports.


Anja Heister, executive director of Footloose Montana, on March 22 posted a series of photos gleaned from an online trapping forum called on her personal and Footloose Montana Facebook sites.

Heister said she opened Footloose Montana's email inbox on Monday and found what she believed to be a death threat directed at family members of the organization:

"I would like to donate (sic) a gun to your childs (sic) head to make sure you can watch it die slowly so I can have my picture taken with it's (sic) bleeding dying screaming for mercy body. YOU WILL BE THE TARGET NEXT BITCHES!" the message read.
