Just to clear the air, here's a 2-minute wolf primer: Wolf Myth Busting - The Truth About Wolves

Today's meeting and hearing will hopefully be a stark contrast to the embarrassing blood-thirsty pro-wolf killing rally lead by political mastermind Butch Otter. I bet he has a room in one of his mansions that is made completely out of otter skin.... his war room where he dons an otter skin suit, sits on his otter throne and contemplates his next move.

Please, if you live in the Treasure Valley come to the Pro-Wolf rally tonight! We need every last one of you - the wolves need you even more!

The Bush Administration is poised to open the door to mass killings of wolves in the Northern Rockies by removing them from the endangered species list. Public hearings have been scheduled in western states -- and a hearing taking place on March 6 in Boise will be our only chance to oppose this deadly scheme in person in Idaho.

Governor Otter has announced that if the gray wolf loses federal protection, he wants to see 550 of Idaho's 650 wolves killed. Putting the wolves right at the threshold margin for going back on the endangered species list; which then leads to costly reintroductions efforts - just like the one we are still paying for.

I really hope you'll join us at the hearing to make your opposition felt. Everyone attending will have the opportunity, if they wish, to speak publicly for two or three minutes against the delisting proposal.

The federal government once allowed our Northern Rockies wolves to be shot, harassed, and poisoned into near extinction. If wolves lose critical protections under the Endangered Species Act, Idaho plans to immediately slaughter all but 100 wolves in the state. And, hundreds more wolves could be killed on sight in Wyoming by aerial gunners - not hunters!

As a resident of Idaho, your comments will have an especially big impact in stopping this terrible plan. Conservationists from all over the world are counting on you, so please take some time out of your busy schedule to be a voice for these magnificent creatures.

The public meeting will take place from 3:00-5:00 p.m. During the meeting, you can learn more about the federal proposal and take part in a question and answer session. Written comments will be accepted at this time.

Then, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the public hearing, you can offer testimonials in person about the importance of preserving crucial protections for our wolves.

I hope you can make it to Tuesday's public meeting. After all, if we don't speak up for the wolves, who will?
