Louise Du Toit, “Award-winning South African artist, musician, singer, composer, arranger, lyricist, actress, writer and painter” wrote Howl Across America and dedicated the song to the campaign  It’s absolutely wonderful. Thank you so much Louise!!

It is my hope it will be played tomorrow at the rally in Washington, DC.  Louise is in the process of making a video as well.  In the meantime you can click on this link to listen and download the song.

HOWL ACROSS AMERICA

===

WOLF RALLY TODAY, WASHINGTON, DC

Wolf Warriors please join Friends of Animals today, Friday, August 12th, in Washington, DC, To Rally For Wolves and Protest the Upcoming Wolf Hunts.

Where:Gather at the Capitol Reflecting Pool at 9.00 a.m. (First Street and East Capitol). Then march to the White House before convening at Lafayette Park (1600 Pennsylvania Avenue—directly across from the White House).

This is the time. Stand for wolves. Be a voice for the voiceless. Remember what wolves are facing in Idaho, starting August 30, 2011, eighteen days from now.

Idaho Wolf Hunt

N0 quotas in most of state.  Hunters can kill 2 wolves per calendar year and since the wolf hunt in Idaho extends through March 31, 2012, hunters can apply for 2 more tags in 2012, allowing them to kill up to 4 wolves. Trappers can kill 5 wolves in 2011 and apply for more tags at the beginning of 2012. That would mean trappers could kill up to 10 wolves during this upcoming hunt.

Traps do not have to be checked for up to 72 hours, wolves could suffer for three days in a trap before being killed. Think how long three days is without food or water, with your pack-mates surrounding you, unable to help.

Remember the pups are just four to five months old. They are unable to care for themselves without the pack. Idaho has approximately 1000 wolves, 1/3 are pups. They could be killed outright or left to starve if their parents are killed.

Idaho wants to reduce its wolf population from 1000 wolves to 150. That means 850 wolves could be slaughtered in this hunt.  Mothers, fathers, babies, sisters, brothers…all gone.

Hunters can use traps (leghold), snares, archery, high-powered rifles, the horror of it goes on and on. If the hunters and trappers don’t get the job done Idaho fish and game has stated they will use Wildlife Services, with their helicopter gunships and traps.

Make no mistake, this will be a bloodbath.

Wyoming

Wyoming wants unregulated killing of wolves in most of the state. That means if Wyoming has its way wolves can be  killed every day of the year.   It will be open season on them to be killed in any way possible, even running over them with a snowmobile.  Wyoming has approx. 300 plus wolves. Yellowstone wolves regularly cross over the park boundaries.  If that happens, they are in danger of losing their lives, just like the Cottonwood Pack back in 2009.

Montana

Montana has approx. 520 wolves. Hunters can kill 220 wolves with archery and high-powered rifles. Meanwhile Wildlife Services continues to kill wolves in Montana. The wolves will be dodging bullets from the hunts and WS.

BE THERE TO STAND FOR WOLVES IN THEIR DARK HOUR!!!

Extirpation All Over Again?

  1. I’ll be at the protest in spirit. I hope this united energy catches the needed attention to protect the wolves from any harm. Please be sure to get publicity/media coverage for the march in Wash.D.C.. I’m also wondering if anything is underway on the West coast (California) as I can contribute original performance art material (pro-wolf) for protest gatherings.

  2. Thanks, Nabeki, for defending wolves against the mania ahead. The Clinton administration repatriated them to the Northern Rockies, and the Obama administration appears keen on exterminating wolves. A crime of zealots who have had public lands handed to them with Salazar, a cattle rancher as gatekeeper.

    If you can help organize a Wolf Rally, please contact Friends of Animals. Make a key theme of such rallies a travel and economic boycott of Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. That means the Greater Yellowstone Coalition and others should NOT be holding grand meetings and events in Wyoming, Idaho and Montana. Write each state’s governor — print postcards for
    events and distributon — and tell these governors you’ll boycott their states as long as wolves are persecuted. Call the tourism offices in those states, too, and sound off. Do more than grieve: fight back.

    Many thanks
