Oppose the recent de-listing of Northern Rockies wolves from the endangered species list! Take action!
Idaho's wolves are now more in danger than ever. Congress removed Northern Rockies wolves from the endangered species list, a move that could result in the mass killing of hundreds of these precious animals in Idaho and Montana. Many people in these areas say that the wolves threaten their livestock, but without federal protections, hunters will be allowed to conduct aerial hunts that can decimate hundreds of wolves at once.
What's worse is that the de-listing wasn't based on any scientific findings or data — it was a purely legislative move meant to allow wolf hunting for those who think the animals are preying on their livestock.
The removal of Northern Rockies wolves from the endangered species list could mean disaster for these precious creatures. Sign the petition asking Idaho's Governor C.L. Otter to stand up for the wolves and put a stop to the planned wolf hunts.
Dear Governor Otter,
I am writing to address the issue of the Idaho wolf hunts that are to take place following the de-listing of Northern Rockies wolves from the endangered species act.
As a dedicated animal advocate, I am greatly concerned for the welfare of these wolves. The de-listing means that the wolves can be freely hunted starting in fall. Many hunters conduct aerial flights in order to kill numerous wolves at once.
What's worse is that their removal from the endangered species list wasn't based on any scientific findings. It was simply done so that disgruntled farmers can now keep wolves at bay from their livestock. Though admittedly a valid problem, mass-killing of the wolves is no way to address it.
If you care about wildlife and the future of the Northern Rockies wolves, you will prohibit anyone from killing them. After all, it wasn't so long ago we were afraid the wolves would disappear altogether.
Thank you for your time.
