Holy Crap, My Head Is Spinning Around Backwards…

The daily, relentless attacks against wolves continues. It’s causing my head to spin around like Linda Blairs.

Now Judge Johnson has sided with Wyoming in their lawsuit against the USFWS. Wyoming wants to classify 90% of wolves in the state as predators, which means they can be shot on sight. A small buffer zone around Yellowstone would be the only place wolves would have any protection. USFWS originally helped Wyoming draft the plan and thought it was just peachy until Judge Molloy shot it down. Now they are being ordered by Judge Johnson to revisit the issue and decide if putting 90% of wolves in Wyoming in imminent danger of death is sufficient to provide connectivity of the wolf population in Yellowstone with just that small buffer zone outside the park. I hope he’s kidding? That is just ridiculous. USFWS has the option to appeal his decision. Who knows what they’ll do? It will be heard by the 10th Circuit, who is not nearly as liberal on environmental issues as the 9th Circuit.

Can you imagine all the nut jobs lining up in the kill zone in Wyoming, just waiting to make their anti-government “statement”, using wolves as scapegoats once again? It would be a real bloodbath. It makes me shudder just to think about it. What makes these people tick?

This is a circus, what did wolves ever do to anyone to deserve this?

Meanwhile the Senate Tester/Baucus bill is looming. It would strip gray wolves of their ESA protections and turn their management back over to Montana and Idaho.  Then the states can have their precious wolf hunts and make money off wolves’ lives, while still allowing Wildlife Services to kill wolves for agribusiness.  Great scheme huh?

I’m living on a strange planet where an animal has been demonized by a bunch of backward thinking wolf haters. The rest of the world must be stunned by this. Oh wait, the rest of the world hasn’t said a word except for a few lone voices crying in the distance. Where are all the big money celebs that profess to care so much about the environment and wildlife? I’m hearing this:

My soul is hurting from the daily barrage of horrible wolf news. I just want to say how much I can’t stand the wolf haters and their minions. I hope they all come back as wolves. No wait, I don’t want to insult wolves. They are made of  better stuff then that. How bout they all come back as elk being chased by wolves. Now that would be justice!!

Meanwhile back to reality:

CALL EVERY SINGLE SENATOR AND LET THEM KNOW YOU DO NOT SUPPORT THE TESTER/BAUCUS ANTI-WOLF BILL.

LET THEM KNOW YOU WILL  NEVER VOTE FOR ANY SENATOR THAT SUPPORTS THIS BILL, ESPECIALLY BAUCUS OR TESTER IF YOU LIVE IN MONTANA!!

CALL YOUR SENATORS AS MANY TIMES AS IT TAKES TO GET YOUR POINT ACROSS. TELL THEM YOU WILL NOT STAND FOR ANYONE TAMPERING WITH THE ESA!!
