Black Tuesday…

November 17, 2011

Dear Friends,

 More than ever, Idaho’s wolves need your voice to speak for them.

 On Black Tuesday, November 15, 2011, a five-month trapping and snaring season began. Anyone who has taken a brief course taught by professional wolf killers can now strangle or mangle wolves all winter up until March 31, 2012, in the Middle Fork Salmon River, Selway, Lolo, Panhandle or Dworshak-Elk City Zones. Up to 10 wolves can be taken by wolf trappers.

 Idaho trappers are celebrating and the media is playing up to them. http://www.kval.com/news/national/133901783.html

 Wolf killers want all of Idaho open to trapping and snaring. As of today, 127 wolves have died since August 30th, including at least 32 pups & yearlings. At least 1/3 of reports don’t even list the age of the wolf.

 Idaho’s political fist (our red legislature, ranchers, big game outfitters, trophy hunters) aims to reduce wolves to 150 or less in Idaho. It has been a hard pill to swallow to see the Obama administration support this jihad against wolves in Idaho (and Montana and Wyoming).

 We strongly suggest that you be extremely careful going anywhere in Idaho with your family, dog, or horse. The people who attended the trapping and snaring classes were sent home with a free snare “for practice”. Snares can quickly choke to death anything that has the misfortune to be caught in it.  Bolt cutters (how many of us carry those?) are the only tool that will cut the cable in time to save a life.

 Outrageous? Yes. You might encounter traps and snares anywhere. They can be legally set within 10’ from the middle of a trail. No warning signs required. Carry bolt cutters (cost $50). Always hike or ski with three people in case your dog is caught in a trap.

 PROTEST THIS ATROCITY AGAINST WOLVES & YOU AND YOUR FAMILY AND PETS.

 PLEASE PHONE OR EMAIL – BE BRIEF, POLITE & SINCERE.
