UPDATE: April 3, 2013

Hi Everyone,

I”m going to leave this post up all week and then the petition will be on the sidebar so people can continue to sign. If we can do this one thing to show Governor Bullock and the gang over at Montana FWP that wolves in Montana have tremendous support and we don’t want them slaughtered, then Jay’s petition will have accomplished a giant first step in stopping this insanity. Please share his petition with all your friends and contacts. The wolves are voiceless and Jay has spoken very eloquently for them! We can’t let them down!


For the wolves, For the wild ones,



Please Sign The Petition To Stop The Killing Of Montana’s Wolves!

For over twenty years I have researched and taught about wolves.  Having had the longest running behavioral study of these animals in Montana’s history, outside of Yellowstone National Park, my interactions with wolf management agencies has been extensive.  I have found that managers have an appalling lack of knowledge about these animals, along with a disregard for science.  At the end of 2011, I published a paper in a peer-reviewed scientific journal that analyzed the data found in the annual reports published by Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP).  This agency is responsible for wolf management.   Their information was filled with fabricated numbers used in making management decisions, such as determining the hunting quota.

There has been no accountability for the repercussions of management decisions, such as killing wolves without proper scientific assessment.  Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks has been telling the public that their wolf hunts and management processes are based in science.  Therefore, I asked them about the procedures used to collect their data.  I was told, “Jay there are no protocols.  No protocol would be necessary or even help really.”  In other words, scientific methods were never used to collect data, making their data only “guesses.”  So using flawed data, FWP has decided to kill hundreds of wolves each year based on justifications that can be easily dis-proven.  Therefore, I have started an online petition to stop the killing of Montana’s wolves.  So far, I am the only scientist to do so.

The goal is 100,000 signatures before the public wolf hunt begins in the fall.  After years of talk, political rhetoric, and a trip to the Governor’s Office, I intend to make FWP listen this time.  Every signature is emailed to the FWP officials listed in the petition, and to the Governor.  However, when the goal has been reached, I will travel to the capitol of Montana and present a copy of your signatures and comments to the Governor, with the media present.  Although the petition explains the issues, it also contains several links to my web site and research so that you can make an informed decision about signing.

Currently, FWP continues to let the public kill more and more wolves, without knowing how many wolves actually live in the state.  Recently, the law has been changed so that hunters can now kill up to three wolves each and use electronic calls.  As added incentive, out-of-state hunting fees have also been reduced.  Although wolves are already trapped using leg holds as a part of hunting, two more bills are being considered that will allow the use of dead wolves to bait these traps.

Please share this petition with family and friends using Facebook, Twitter or other social media.  These are your wolves, the world’s wolves.  Don’t let them die for the agenda of only a few misguided and bigoted people.

Thank you for your concern,

Jay Mallonee

  1. server on the petition not working -I will try later but you might want to check that out


    • Thanks art, It was working about 15 minutes ago so it should be back up soon. I’ll keep checking.

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,


  2. It is horrifying that the State of Montana would murder such wonderful animals. Wolves need to be protected and not hunted. If the hunt takes place, the SPERL FAMILY FOUNDATION will boycott the State of Montana and will contribute up to $100,000 for the defeat of any and all politicians that support wolf hunting. Think Green, Think Peace, THINK OF A WORLD WITHOUT HUNTING.


  3. Thanks, Nabeki. Got another chance to put someone elses name on it. Bob Goldman is sending this around, too. Jay is a wonderful biologist with scientific answers. Maybe if we all rally around him we can get something changed. But the hunters and the haters are strong and mean. The cattlemen are rich and powerful. Wish we could do more. It is so heartwarming that the people of Minnesota have spoken loud and clear. Wish we could do the same in Montana. By the way, the site works fine now.


  4. Signed!


  5. Signed & shared.

    Forwarding this plee to sign for the wolves. S&S


  7. Signed


  8. signed and cross posted. jay Mallonee’s book about his canine companion: Timber a Perfect Life,is well worth reading. especially considering that he started out killing the nonhuman animals at a vivisection lab.


  9. These atrocities must stop. Genocide on wolves and any species is what we’ve fought so hard to halt for years. Our legislators should be held accountable, as well as the Governors of each state that lets this happen.


  10. Signed and posted. GOd please stop the genocide and slaughter of the wolves. It reminds me of portions of Africa where genocide on the people of another race took place. It is sick and wrong and shame on those who take part in wolf slaughter and parade it like a trophy and smile in a picture when the animal suffers and does nothing to help ease it. A shot in the head is better if at all. Shame on all ranchers and hunters who glorify this. Sick


  11. I’ve signed and will be sharing… just wondering, do we have such a person in each of the other states? that we can do the same possibly.


  12. Signed and will re-blog as well as pass on to friends.


  13. Reblogged this on Girl for Animal Liberation (GiRRL_Earth) and commented:


  14. Reblogged this on Exposing the Big Game.


  15. Signed and shared on our facebook page at; http://www.facebook.com/TheAnimalSpirits


  16. I tried to sign this but something went crazy. I hope my signature will count as my vote.
    For the wolves!


  17. It is a sad day when men do these things, destroying God’s beautiful creatures, nature, and our pristine waterways all in the name of greed. For the wolves, brave creatures, may they run free once again, in Rainbow Heaven, never to be hunted again.


  18. signed


  19. This is wrong some people dont have any thing to do in this world but to be totally stupid. They are heartless and very cruel im so discusted by these people. If i could catch them out doing these things they wouldnt leave the area they would be there until some one came to pick them up. Jimmy Shadow Wolf Dunning


  20. Kudos to Jay Mallonee for speaking up for wolves! I feel so bad for him, not getting any answers to the questions he asked the MFWP about the science of the wolf hunt. If the hunt was truly based off of science as they claim, then the MFWP should be able to give this biologist the info he needs without any problem!

    I will be signing his petition, and I will be encouraging others to do the same.


  21. Wolves need protection always! After being obliterated in Yellowstone & now are on the map again. Montana needs to give ranchers tools to deter wolves not KILL them! Get with the program and protect the NATIVE AMERICAN ANIMALS! WOLVES NEED YOUR PROTECTION, NOT YOUR ATTACKS!


  22. I hope the work you and others really pays off. Instead of educating themselves on the importance of wolves to the ecosystem People kill them and trap them. Trapping them is just as bad as killing. People please STOP this non-sense and #saveourwolves #bewolfaware
