Wolf pups in Idaho to be gassed?

Proclaimed by: Alephestra

Idaho wolves need our help yet again.
In spite of the recent shelter reinstated them under the ESA just weeks ago.
Please lend your signature by the 31st of August...I know this is awfully short
notice, I just got it yesterday.

Thank you and Bright Blessings,

A Brutal Plan for
Northern Rockies Wolves
Help Stop the Wolf Slaughter

Hurry -- the deadline for comments on this outrageous wolf-killing plan is Tuesday, August 31st!

Wolf pups would be gassed in their dens by federal agents according to plans from USDA's Wildlife Services.
Speak out now to stop the out-of-control wolf killing plan -- before the government-sponsored killing starts.

The court decision to restore Endangered Species Act protections for Greater Yellowstone wolves is only weeks old. But that’s not stopping Wildlife Services agents -- the government’s wildlife killing experts -- from planning to kill hundreds of wolves in the region, including helpless pups in their dens.

The federal Wildlife Services agency has gone too far -- and we need your help to stop them.

Please take action now to speak out against the Wildlife Services plan to expand their wolf-killing role in Idaho.

The federal Wildlife Services agency (a branch of the U.S. Department of Agriculture) is the primary wolf-killer in the United States. Now they want to expand their wolf-killing operations. They plan to work with Idaho officials to kill up to 80 percent of the wolves in north-central Idaho by land and from the air.

Their plan also includes killing entire packs -- including gassing helpless wolf pups in their dens -- and surgically sterilizing alpha wolf pairs.

All this despite the fact that wolves in the region are once again protected by federal law.

Speak out now to stop the out-of-control wolf killing plan -- before the government-sponsored killing starts.

USDA’s Wildlife Services is the same agency that helped kill off wolves by the 1940s. And their new plan shows their intent to escalate their current war on these magnificent animals that you and I have fought so hard to protect.

Instead of helping ranchers co-exist with wolves and other native wildlife with proven non-lethal techniques, Wildlife Services is expanding their role as the nation’s top wolf-killers -- and dragging wolf management back to the brutal and archaic practices of the past.

Wildlife Services’ outrageous wolf-killing plan seeks to punish wolves for doing what they do naturally: preying on elk and fulfilling their ecological role as part of a natural system.

This unacceptable wolf-killing plan cannot be allowed to go forward -- especially since wolves in Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies regained protections under the Endangered Species Act.

Oppose Wildlife Services’ plan to kill more endangered wolves in Idaho.

Idaho officials are claiming that wolves are the major cause of elk declines in parts of the state. But in 23 of the 29 elk management zones, populations of these animals are at or above population targets -- many of the areas experiencing declines in elk numbers contain no wolves. And the Clearwater National Forest was experiencing steep declines in elk numbers by 1988 -- long before wolves returned to the area.

Politics is clearly driving state officials to call on USDA’s Wildlife Services to kill more wolves to artificially boost game populations beyond what current habitat can support.

Take action now to help stop the federal Wildlife Services plan for killing more protected wolves in the Greater Yellowstone and Northern Rockies region.

Please take action today -- the deadline for public comments on this outrageous wolf-killing plan is Tuesday, August 31st.
