The Time to Defend Wolves is Now

5.01.2007



We have just one week left to prevent the slaughter of hundreds of wolves in the Northern Rockies. Unless we stop them, federal officials could eliminate vital protections for these magnificent animals and spark the biggest wolf massacre in the lower 48 states to occur in decades.

There are just 8 days remaining in the public comment period on this awful proposal.

Please take action now!

Wolves were eliminated from this area in the last century trapped, poisoned, hunted and harassed. Their re-introduction to Yellowstone National Park and Central Idaho in the mid-1990s was a major conservation accomplishment.

Now that achievement is at risk as officials in Idaho and Wyoming gear up to kill hundreds of wolves.

In February, officials in the Bush/Cheney Administration proposed removing gray wolves in the Northern Rockies from the Endangered Species List... and turning over management of wolves to Idaho and Wyoming -- two states more concerned with eliminating wolves than
managing them.

Lawmakers and anti-wolf extremists in Idaho and Wyoming have already announced plans to kill hundreds of wolves, putting the gray wolf's future in the American West at risk.
