Idiots in the US have officially taken the gray wolf off the endangered species list. They are not planning to consider them endangered until there are only 300 individuals of this kind left.
Who the hell do they think they are? Who the hell do they think WE are to not stand against such callous, irresponsible stupidity?
Poachers are already butchering these amazing creatures. PLEASE HELP!!!!
This beautiful creature is displayed in Long Beach, Washington. Must they all be stuffed and mounted in order for us to take a stand against the powers that be destroying our wonderful animals???
It’s a pity they aren’t stuffed and hung on a wall themselves to see just how it feels. We allow convicts to live… rapists… murderers… child molesters… evil of the worst sorts…
Yet our animals die every single day due to human negligence???
I am appalled at human ignorance.
Tell Congress to Ban Wildlife Poisons!
Recently, the Bush Administration stripped endangered species protection from gray wolves in Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies. These wolves face a range of threats, including the use of two toxic chemicals in government-run predator control programs. Please ask your Representative to support HR 4775, a bill banning two deadly poisons that kill gray wolves and many other wildlife species.
The government-sanctioned massacre of wolves is now under way.
A mere 30 days after the Bush Administration stripped Yellowstone’s wolves of their Endangered Species protection, the Northern Rockies have been turned into a killing field.
Thirty-seven wolves are already dead. Hundreds more are being targeted by Wyoming, Idaho and Montana, which have waited years for this chance to put their plans for extermination into action.
But today there is reason for hope: America’s best wildlife legal team is riding to the rescue.
Our partner organization, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) — and 11 other groups — filed suit this week in federal court to stop the killing and restore the wolf’s desperately needed Endangered Species protection.
The court action comes not a moment too soon. Eyewitness reports of the latest wolf-killing rampage have been heartbreaking to people all over the world who care about wildlife.
On the very day that these wolves lost their Endangered Species protection, a crippled wolf named “Limpy,” one of the most photographed wolves in Yellowstone’s famous Druid Peak pack, was shot to death when he ventured outside the park.
Another wolf was stalked for over 35 miles by snowmobile before being overtaken and shot. Another was found dead on the side of the highway, his still-warm body torn apart by bullets.
And, tragically, at least four female wolves have been killed just prior to the denning season, which could doom some of the region’s wolf pups.
Wolves simply cannot outrun these relentless attacks. Their last, best hope now rests with the life-saving reprieve that NRDC is seeking in federal court.
As NRDC presses the legal fight, we’ll continue working night and day to broadcast the wolf’s plight and mobilize America against the Bush Administration’s heartless, wolf-killing policy. You can help by telling Congress to ban the poisoning of gray wolves and other wildlife: send your message now.
In the meantime, I’ll be sure to keep you informed as events unfold in the historic courtroom fight to save America’s wolves.
