After Derek Wolfe Claims He Hunted Down a Mountain Lion ‘Ethically’ in January, Free Agent Carson Wentz’s Black Bear Massacre Set to Upset Animal Rights Activists

Super Bowl winner Derek Wolfe found himself at the receiving end of severe backlash from animal rights activists earlier this year. The former DE took to Instagram to express his distress over the havoc wreaked by a lion in his neighborhood and subsequently went on an “ethical” hunt to address the issue. Unfortunately, this decision directed a fury of criticism towards him. Meanwhile, NFL free agent Carson Wentz finds himself entangled in a similar situation.

Carson Wentz recently encountered a black bear during his time in Alaska, and he shared this encounter on his Instagram profile. As a result, he is now facing a barrage of hateful comments, as animal rights activists show no inclination to grant him leniency.

Carson Wentz was on a hunting trip when he took down the black bear with his bow and arrow. Wherein the Alaska region it’s legal to hunt a black bear, considering the state hunting regulations are obeyed. Following his wish for hunting, he climbed the mountain to spot the black bear and later shared a carousel of photos featuring the black bear lying on the ground, and some scenic mountain views.

Wentz captioned the carousel saying: “Bucket list. Got the opportunity to spot and stalk black bear in one of our new favorite places on earth— Alaska! Incredible trip and an incredible animal!”  In reply, Instagram users have shown no mercy in commenting on this post. One of the users commented, “Who has killing animals on their bucket list???”.

Whereas in the dark, a user shared a positive insight following the hatred, “Good work, man!!! Ignore the ignorant hate for folks who’s choose not to try to research or understand that wild game are managed by the state for quotas and population sustainment and also the simple yet powerful fact that if it wasn’t for hunters there wouldn’t be wildlife for anyone to enjoy. PERIOD.”

A club of emotions is being witnessed, but the question lies in how the quarterback free agent is going to sail through this situation. Earlier when Derek Wolfe was in the picture, he received several death threats for himself and his family, which took a toll on him.

Death threats to Derek Wolfe

Derek Wolfe shared, “You can’t please everybody. But the amount of hate and death threats, you know, threatening my children saying that they hope pedophiles come after my kids, and this and that, it’s like, what kind of sicko are you?”. He further added, “These folks don’t want to think logically. They’re making their decisions emotionally.” He further shared, that over 200+ calls were made to Colorado Parks and Wildlife to report grievances, to which Wolfe ensured that “It was done ethically“.

According to Wolfe, the foundation was laid by an animal activist organization, that motivated people to attack him on social media, by spreading statements like “He had no right to do this” and “It was a murder“. The situation was worse with Derek Wolfe and progressed in a similar way. However, with time it settled down, but it created terrible turbulence in the former NFL champ’s life. Opinions on animal hunting can vary greatly, and it is a topic that often sparks debate. Consequently, the ethical aspects of hunting animals need to be explored in order to gain a better understanding of the underlying principles involved.
