  1. AMO A TODOS LOS ANIMALES , POR ESO CONSIDERO AL QUE LOS MATA , ASESINOS

  2. i’m there in spirit..wish i lived closer!thanks for lending your voices,song,prayer and peaceful protests..it takes courage to continue this path in the face of such opposition.i support you!!

    • I too wish I was closer. Years ago my parents took us to Academy of Natural Sciences in Phila., PA and I met ‘Jethro’, a gray wolf and to this day I have tried to fight for wolves but most especially since those idiots in Congress that de-listed the wolves off the endangered species list- and who do the stinkin cattleman and what I call poor sportsman association’s bidding ZI have been so upset that I cannot read some of the torture they are doing to the poor wolves. A quote by Thoreau says it all “An animal (wolf) killed in jest, DIES IN ERNEST”. They are trying to eek out an existence and are more afraid of man than not. They do less environmental harm than livestock. We need these top predators. This country’s mentality is going backwards. Please know my prayers are with you and thank you for your time for wolves.
      SAR

  3. im praying for the wolf to stop killing them

  4. Good luck warriors! I wish I lived closer I would be there in a heartbeat but I’m with you in spirit.

  5. stay strong….live free….and HOWL !!!!!!

  6. Please, let live the wolves. They belong to our earth as us. They do nothing hurting us by their presence. They were before us. Please, try to understand we have to live in peace with them, as other animals. Dont be as those barbarian we could found all around the planet. You belong to a wonderful country, you live free, you were a model for us, ols european people. Continue to be. You dont need to kill wolves. You kill your humanity and compassion. What do you want to give as heritage to your children, and grand children. Do you want everybody could only say ; they were the best barbarian on this earth in memory of you. Please, listen to your heart and compassion. Please, stop.

  7. I wish I could be there. Will continue written protests and supporting sanctuaries and education. Bless you and good luck!

  8. will be there in spirit. live far away.

    Wish I could carry a sign: “Why does A.L.E.C. want to kill wolves?”

    blessings to all

  9. Wish I was there for the wolves. Will be there in spirit.
    I hope a lot of folks show up.

  10. Please spread this on social media?

    Below is a quote from American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) document 6214.pdf stating their intention to de-list animals on the Endangered Species List.

    PLEASE HAVE A SIGN CALLING OUT ALEC IN THE WOLF KILLS.
    (sorry to shout but have no ‘bold text’ option.

    Please seek ways to out ALEC’s connection to trapping et al forms of wolf slaughter. Out ALEC -member state legislators, agency reps before next election. ALEC is currently loosing corporate supporters after it became known it funded NRA to push a law which protected the killer of an unarmed Florida teenager. This is a good time to keep the heat.

    Back to Wolf Protection- here is the excerpt (doc 6214):
    ” WHEREAS, the Endangered Species Act thereby presents significant potential negative social and economic consequences for every state of the union; now therefore
    BE IT RESOLVED, the American Legislative Exchange Council supports policies which balance the social and economic needs of people and communities in federal decision-making processes with the needs of environmental protection; and
    BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the American Legislative Exchange Council urges Congress to amend the Endangered Species Act upon its x-authorization to require a stronger role for the. states md a stronger consideration of the social and economic consequences, including takings, in whole or in part, in the designation of critical habitat and in the development and implementation of recovery programs for threatened or endangered species, and
    REZT FURTHER RESOLVED, that copies of this resolution be transmitted to all ALEC members , all state Governors, and Members of appropriate Congressional Committees. ”

    Peace for all Sentient Beings!

  11. Not only are the wolves being massacred in Idaho, but the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FW &P) will be having a hearing in Helena on May 10th at 8:30 A.M. to approve trapping of wolves in Montana.
    Our fight here is not over and we need to mobilize all supporters.
    Please write to MT FW & P and tell them that this brutal killing of wolves is cruel and unnecessary. Since the Wolf Hunting Season ended in Montana, there have been few sightings of wolves and limited conflicts with elk and livestock. There has been an increase in conflicts involving bears and mountain lions and recently an attack in Kalispell involving domestic dogs. Special hunting groups want to trap the wolves because they can sell the pelts to Canada and make money from them (as was done by poachers in Washington State).
    Please write to the following officials and let them know that the trapping of wolves in Montana is cruel and unnecessary:
    Commissioners in General
    fwpcomm@mt.gov
    Director Joe Maurier
    jmaurier@mt.gov
    cc copy to Gov. Schweitzer
    governor@mt.gov

    Toni Stark
    Truth About Wolves
    Stevensville, Montana

    • Will do. And a question:
      Please help by specifying WHICH hunting groups want to sell pelts and what Canadian businesses are profiting? What is the exact channel of profit ? Please post as that will help in the letters and emails to MT and subsequent actions.

      The Canadian govt needs to be called out as they also invested
      3 million $ in baby harp seal pelts this spring. Canada is investing
      in the fur trade. Check the website of Humane Society International for details on the harp seal pup kills, if you are interested.

      Thanks for this update.

  12. I am nowhere near there and cannot fly- but hope many show up to support this – enough of a few bullies backed by corporations getting a thrill sadistic kill for fun

  13. With you in spirit….many will come and much attention will finally come to our cause….keep up the great work…..for the wolves!

    • Subject: BAN LETHAL/LEG IRON TRAPS & SNARES & PUT WOLVES BACK ON THE ENDANGERED SPECIES LIST PERMANENTLY

      Hi,

      Lethal leg iron traps & snares are barbaric, brutal,inhumane, sadistic. They are the precursors to personnel land mines. Unintended targets get tortured to death. Any child of God caught in one suffers in excrutiating pain for days, losing blood, hungry and dehydrating, and in fear/helpless. Folks in Idaho took pot shots at a beautiful wolf that had been caught in a trap for days for FUN….There is NO PLACE in civilized society for these! You can judge a country by the way in which it treats its animals – Ghandi.

      That’s why I created a petition to The California State House, The California State Senate, Governor Jerry Brown, The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama, which says:

      “Lethal leg iron traps & snares are barbaric, brutal,inhumane, sadistic – The precursors to personnel land mines. Unintended targets get tortured to death. Any child of God caught in one suffers in excrutiating pain for days, losing blood, hungry and dehydrating, and in fear/helpless. Folks in Idaho took pot shots at a beautiful wolf that had been caught in a trap for days for FUN….There is NO PLACE in civilized society for these! WOLVES NEVER FULLY RECOVERED FROM THEIR LAST NEAR EXTINCTION THAT TAXPAYER $ PAID FOR – THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE WANT WOLVES PROTECTED! PUT THEM BACK ON THE ENDANGERED SPECIES LIST NOW PERMANENTLY!”

      Will you sign this petition? Click here:

      Thanks!

  14. More on EBAY: Thanks to those aiding in taking this action. It takes about five minutes and may result in a decrease in economic reward for torturing wolves and other animals.

    In Ebay’s guidelines it does have a clause that no animal products will be allowed for auction if they are obtained by inhumane methods. This is in the guidelines for animal products, sub category: animal parts, pelts.

    To find the page:
    > http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/items-ov.html
    > scroll down to ” animals and wildlife products” in guidelines (center page)
    >select ” animal parts, pelts” in the subcategory. Open the guidelines.
    >scroll down to the comment window: “WAS THIS PAGE HELPFUL?”
    select yes to open comment window.(that is the only way to open the comment window, which is amusing)
    > type your short comment (limited characters) and then click ‘submit’
    NOTE: if any time program wants you to login, choose “Guest”

    Here is what I commented.
    Thank you for the prohibition of auctioning animal pelts and products obtained by inhumane methods. I am asking Ebay to ban sale of all hides, as trapping, snaring, poisoning, hounding are all painful and often involve hours or days of suffering. Images on trapping websites, uploaded by trappers themselves, provide brutal images, often with sadistic text about their exploits. Additionally, there seems to be an increase in poaching, in general due to the poor economic times.There have been several articles on the increase of poaching of all wildlife due to the poor economic times. Trapping has been banned in 88 countries. That it is allowed in the US is a national tragedy for animal welfare.

    FYI: if you find a pelt in the auction listings, there is a ‘report this item’ button. The listing will be investigated per the guidelines.

    Thanks to those who could make the protest in Boise. I thought about it all day, with good thoughts. I wish we could set a time and have ceremonies across the nation, stand-downs across the nation. Mayday?
    Wolves running free from human harm in my heart…

    • Please sign on my petition to ban trapping/snares that I posted above yesterday and here is my petition to put wolves back on the Endangered Species List: (please sign this one, too) and I am going to write to Ebay again (with your specific instructions, thanks) and also to the MT folks….thanks for the links!

      Subject: Save the Wolves!

      Revoke the despicable rider that the GOP tacked on to the last budget (even though it had nothing to do with the budget).Revoke that despicable rider that removed wolves from the Endangered Species List….thereby depriving them of the protections that they sorely need and deserve. This list, part of the Endangered Species Act is supposed to be based on science, not politics!!!

      So I created a petition to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama, which says:
      “Revoke the GOP rider tacked onto the last budget that removed wolves from the Endangered Species List; where they belong. It has nothing to do with the budget and nothing to do with science!”

      Will you sign this petition? Click here:

      http://signon.org/sign/save-the-wolves?source=c.fwd.in&r_by=1252275

      Thanks!

      • Nikki…I’ll put your relisting petition on the front of the blog. That seems to to be the only answer. We can’t fight a million brush fires and attacks on wolves coming from every direction. They must gain their federal protections back, wolves cannot survive in any meaningful way without federal protection. The Senators who voted for the rider should be shamed into doing something, especially the Democrats!!!

        For the wolves, For the wild ones,
        Nabeki

      • Thanks, Nabeki. I completely agree that with all the brush fires coming from every direction at the same time…we have to get Federal protection back for the wolves…first and foremost…thanks so much for all that you do!

      • Nikki….I want to put up your petition to relist the wolves but you need to raise the signature goal to at least 2500.

        For the wolves, For the wild ones,
        Nabeki

      • I checked with signon.org and they say that they automatically set a goal of 50 signatures to every petition and that they automatically increase the goal every time it is met…that the person creating the petition cannot set the number…that is their process…so please post both petitions ,and, according to their instructions, they will keep on increasing the goal number as the previous one (the initial 50 and so on) have been met…thanks so much…

  15. wish i could live there and help

    • Thanks Toni about the Montana trapping problem. Letter written and sent to all three links. Thanks. Thanks Eric for the Ebay link and instructions. Done, too. Here’s my comment to them:

      Any animal pelt/skin is obtained from inhumane, barbaric, sadistic cruel methods = trapping, snares, hounding. 88 countries prohibit traps and snares. Animals suffer in pain for days and there are some sick people that post the suffering trapped animals in terrible pain as an amusement. We have to ban trapping and take away all profit from this sadistic inhumane barbaric custom…take away the profit incentive – to do this – we have to stop selling animal pelts as they are solely derived from the extreme animal cruelty/torture of trapping, snares, and hounding. PLEASE PROHIBIT THE SALE OF PELTS/SKINS! THESE SADISTIC PRACTICES MUST STOP! THEY SHOULD NOT PROFIT FROM THEIR EVIL!

  16. My letter to the Montana folks(all 3 links):

    This is supposed to be a democracy, wherein the majority rules. THE
    MAJORITY OF PEOPLE WANT WOLVES PROTECTED…NOT SLAUGHTERED! WE THE
    PEOPLE DON’T WANT YOU TO HUNT THEM ANYMORE! YOU HAVE ALREADY KILLED
    TOO MANY!

    THEY NEVER FULLY RECOVERED FROM THEIR LAST NEAR EXTINCTION!

    Lethal leg iron traps & snares are barbaric, brutal,inhumane, sadistic
    – The precursors to personnel land mines. Unintended targets get
    tortured to death. Any child of God caught in one suffers in
    excrutiating pain for days, losing blood, hungry and dehydrating, and
    in fear/helpless. Folks in Idaho took pot shots at a beautiful wolf
    that had been caught in a trap for days for FUN….
    There has been NO ACCOUNTABILITY for that…. so WE ARE ALL BOYCOTTING
    ALL THINGS IDAHO AND THEY WILL HAVE ZERO TOURISM DOLLARS BECAUSE OF
    THAT!

    DO YOU WANT TO LOSE ALL OF YOUR TOURISM, TOO?

    THE CHOICE IS YOURS! DO NOT APPROVE TRAPPING OF WOLVES. PERIOD.

    TRAPPING IS INHUMANE AND BARBARIC. IT IS TORTURE!

    The Lord had Adam name all of the Animals to BOND WITH THEM – just as
    when you name your child. ALL OF THE ANIMALS, LIKE US, ARE ALL
    CHILDREN OF GOD!

    We have been Mandated to be guardians/caretakers…not murderers –
    THOU SHALT NOT KILL and not torturers – THOU SHALT HONOR THE LORD THY
    GOD….to honor Him, we must Honor His CHILDREN….torturing and
    slaughtering ARE NOT HONORING
    !
    There is NO PLACE in civilized society for traps!

    I reiterate:
    WOLVES NEVER FULLY RECOVERED FROM THEIR LAST NEAR EXTINCTION THAT
    TAXPAYER $ PAID FOR – THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE WANT WOLVES PROTECTED!

    DO THE RIGHT THING!

    LET WOLVES LIVE! DO NOT TRAP THEM! DO NOT HUNT THEM! DO NOT TORTURE
    AND SLAUGHTER THEM ANYMORE!

    You can judge a country by the way in which it treats its animals – Ghandi.
