Wolf Blood Soaks The Ground – Over 600 Dead…

Wolf Killed_Source FB Posted November 13

I can hardly believe the numbers. 605 wolves have been slaughtered in the combined hunts since August 30, 2012.  In 102 days or a little over three months, hundreds of wolves have been wiped out. Images of their mangled, bloodied bodies litter FB and hunting forums. The smiling, grinning wolf killers are gloating in their blood bath. AND this is only December. Montana opens wolf trapping season on December 15.  The Colville Tribes in Washington state are  hunting wolves on their reservation.

Seven collared wolves from Yellowstone National Park have been killed.

Killed late October: 824M of the Mollies pack.

Early November: 829F of the Blacktail Plateau pack.

November 10th in WY: 754M of the Lamar Canyon pack.

November 13th in MT: 823F of the Junction Butte pack (sole collar).

Date/location unknown: 762M and 763F of the Madison pack.

Date unknown, killed in WY: 793(?) of the Snake River pack.

December 6th: 832F. Iconic Alpha Female of  the Lamar Canyon pack.

Wolves are being gut shot, tortured, trapped, strangled in choking snares, arrowed and god only knows what they’re doing to them in Wyoming’s  predator zone, any method of killing is allowed, including poison.  Wisconsin wants to hunt wolves with dogs. A temporary injunction stopped it for now BUT  the issue is being revisited on December 20, 2012.

This is the state of “wolf management” as of December 9, 2012.

We can thank the Obama administration and its Interior Secretary Ken Salazar,  Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid D-N, for allowing the Northern Rockies wolf delisting rider to remain in the budget bill, Senator Jon Tester D-MT, for slipping the wolf rider into the Senate budget bill and the majority of  Senate Democrats who voted for it, USFWS for delisting wolves in Wyoming and the Great Lakes and the state game agencies of  Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Wisconsin and Minnesota for allowing the hunts to take place. Everyone who is responsible for the massacre should hang their heads in shame but it’s fairly obvious they’re not ashamed. This will continue until wolf advocates come together and put pressure on the politicians and feds to stop to this insanity. Wolves must be relisted!!

WAKE UP AMERICA!

ACTION ALERT: HOWL AGAINST Simpson’s Sneak Ax Attack on Wolves & the ESA

SAVE ME! Salmon River wolf
Copyright Lynne K Stone 2008


Dear Friends,

Wolves need our help once again. The U.S. House “Continuing Resolution” budget bill goes to the U.S. Senate on Monday, Feb 28th.

Please pick up the phone and call the Senators (list below) TODAY, THIS WEEKEND, MONDAY, TUESDAY, or whenever you can … . Please speak up for wolves.

Buried deep in the bill is Section 1713, that forever would strip wolves of any federal protection in Idaho, Montana and parts of Oregon, Utah and Washington. This sneaky maneuver put forth by Idaho Rep. Mike Simpson doesn’t even mention the word “wolf” or Endangered Species Act. Guess he thought no one would notice.

While there are dozens of terrible provisions in the House “Continuing Resolution” budget, this ALERT focuses on Section 1713 – Simpson’s ax attack on wolves and the Endangered Species Act. I urge you to call members of the Senate Committee on Environment & Public Works where the House budget will be debated starting March 1, Tuesday. Ask the Senators to remove Section 1713.

This committee is chaired by Barbara Boxer (D-CA). She is waffling on her support of wolves, apparently because she doesn’t want to upset Democratic Senators from Montana. Idaho’s Senator Mike Crapo is a minority member of this committee – he’s not a friend of wolves, either, but he still needs to hear from us.

Thank you,

Lynne

TAKE ACTION

FOCUS ON CALLING MAJORITY SENATORS – AS MANY AS YOU CAN. YOU’LL HAVE ABOUT A MINUTE. IF YOU LIVE IN ANOTHER STATE, PLEASE CALL YOUR SENATORS, ESP IF ONE IS ON THIS COMMITTEE. If you would rather send an e-mail, go to the Senator’s website and write your comments.

Suggestions on what to say:

- Calling regards to the House budget bill.

- Urge that the Senate remove Section 1713 – Rep Mike Simpson’s attack on wolves and the ESA. As an Idaho resident he does not speak for me.

- Section 1713 would strip wolves in Idaho & Montana of all their protection and hundreds of wolves will be killed.

- I like wolves and want them protected.

- The budget bill is no place to legislate the fate of wolves or any Endangered Species.
-
Capital Switchboard Numbers - give the name of the Senator & you will be transfered to their office. You will then either speak to a staff member, or on the weekend – to voice mail.

House Republicans Move against Wolves

Friday, February 25, 2011

Buried inside a U.S. House budget bill to keep the federal government operating past March is a controversial provision that would remove the endangered species classification for wolves in the Rocky Mountains.

Pushed by Republicans, the plan would allow the wolf population to be reduced to only 300 in the Northern Rockies, an area covering Idaho, Montana and parts of Washington, Oregon and Utah. Currently, about 1,700 wolves roam the region, meaning the legislation would allow for the slaughter of 82% of the animals.

Andrew Wetzler at the Natural Resources Defense Council insists 300 wolves is not a sufficient number for the long-term survival of the species, which nearly went extinct in the 20th century.
Twice before, lawmakers tried to end the wolves’ endangered species designation, only to have a federal judge intervene. The new attempt includes language designed to prevent the courts from getting in the way, by stating the rule “shall not be subject to judicial review.”

Wolves would still be protected in Wyoming, the southwestern desert and the upper Great Lakes.
Representative Mike Simpson (R-Idaho), chair of the appropriations subcommittee overseeing the Interior Department, speaking on behalf of ranchers, justified the renewed killing of wolves. “Not only do wolf populations far exceed recovery goals, but without proper management those populations have grown to the point where they are adversely impacting other wildlife populations in the region and wreaking havoc for ranchers, hunters, and public land users in Idaho,” he said in a statement.
