Remembering Yellowstone’s Cottonwood Pack….

There was great sadness over the killing of the 06 Female, one of the most famous wolves ever to grace Yellowstone National  Park. But long before her untimely death, another equally famous Yellowstone wolf met the same fate years earlier.  527f, the alpha female of Yellowstone’s Cottonwood Pack, was gunned down outside the park by a hunter’s bullet along with her equally famous daughter and mate. This happened mere months after the Obama administration removed ESA protections for wolves and handed them over to hostile state governments, in Montana and Idaho.
I want to pay tribute to these amazing wolves and others like them, as the tragedy of Obama’s failed policies continue to wreak havoc on wolves and other wildlife.

 Yellowstone’s famous Cottonwood pack Alpha female, 527, fell to  a hunter’s bullet outside the park at the beginning of Montana’s wolf hunt

Montana wolf hunt is stalked by controversy

The demise of a much-studied pack raises questions about lifting the hunting ban in areas bordering Yellowstone park.

October 25, 2009|Kim Murphy

GARDINER, MONT. — Wolf 527 was a survivor. She lived through a rival pack’s crippling 12-day siege of her den. When another pair of wolves laid down stakes in her territory, she killed the mother and picked off the pups while the invader’s mate howled nearby in frustration and fury.

She was not a charmer. But successful wolves are not known for their geniality. She was large and black and wary — and cruel when she needed to be. As the alpha female of the Cottonwood Creek pack, she also was equipped with a radio collar so wildlife biologists could track her movements, making her one of Yellowstone National Park’s best-known wolves.

 Then she ventured outside the park boundaries.

Wolf 527 was killed Oct. 3 by a hunter on Buffalo Plateau north of Yellowstone, less than three weeks into Montana’s back country elk season. Wolves often stalk elk outside the park and are attracted by entrails the hunters leave behind. But this year, the elk season coincided with the opening of the state’s first wolf hunt in modern times.

“She was a genius wolf in her tactics,” said Laurie Lyman, a former San Diego County teacher who has spent the last five years tracking the recovery of the endangered gray wolves that were reintroduced into Yellowstone in 1995. “Her strategies were just unbelievable. She knew how to survive anything, but she didn’t know how to survive a man with a gun.”

Park officials believe four of the Cottonwood pack’s 10 wolves — including 527′s mate, the alpha male, and her daughter — died during those first weeks, in effect ending research into one of the park’s most important study groups.

“Whether the pack exists anymore or not, to us the pack is gone,” said Doug Smith, the biologist in charge of the Yellowstone reintroduction program that helped bring wolves back from the brink of extinction in the Northern Rockies. Cottonwood “was a key pack on the northern range,” he said, giving researchers a window into the existence of animals that had little or no interaction with humans.

State wildlife officials, caught off guard by the ease with which the wolves were cut down, called off the backcountry hunt along a section of Yellowstone’s northern boundary for the rest of the year.

But the general wolf hunting season opens today throughout much of the rest of Montana, including other areas bordering the 3,468-square-mile park. Wildlife advocates have sought, so far unsuccessfully, a buffer zone to protect Yellowstone’s storied wolf packs.

With more than 1,600 wolves now in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming, state officials are allowing hunters this year to take up to 75 in Montana and 220 in Idaho. Federal protections remain in Wyoming.

“We’ve got quite a number of other border packs. So people need to decide how hunting’s going to occur on the park boundaries,” Smith said. “Whose wolves are they? Are they national wolves? Montana wolves? And we have to decide what is the value of our research on wolf populations that are not affected by people.”

Wolf Rally – Coeur d’Alene, Idaho (August 30, 2012)

Published on Sep 13, 2012 by

“One year after wolves lost federal protection, over 40% of the wolf population has been killed by trophy hunters and trappers in Idaho and Montana. A total of 545 wolves were killed for fun in these two Northern Rocky states. Watch this video to learn more about wolves and help stop the war on wildlife.

“Watch the story of Bella, a husky who lost her leg in a snare that was set in Idaho by a trapper from Wildlife Services at this link:”

Special thanks to Predator Defense, Northern Idaho Wolf Alliance, Friends of the Clearwater, Footloose Montana and all dedicated wolf advocates who made this rally a success. The rally was well covered by the media and made the Los Angeles Times, my good friend Ann Sydow (NIWA) was mentioned in the LA Times article.

It’s our hope this video, produced by Brooks Fahy of Predator Defense, will inspire you to hold your own rally in defense of wolves. They need our voices to save them from brutal state kill/management. While I type this wolves are being bow hunted in Montana and stalked in Idaho. In Montana an 83 pound male wolf was killed outside of Glacier National Park in the North Fork of the Flathead, arrowed to death. It made the front page of the Hungry Horse News ( a weekly Montana newspaper in the Flathead Valley.)

C-Falls bowhunter takes wolf

Our wolves have been hijacked for blood sport. The wolf reintroduction has turned from a success story into a nightmare, thanks to the Obama Administration, his rancher Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and the US Senate Democrats, led by Harry Reid D-Nevada. They sold wolves out in the Northern Rockies to boost Sen. Jon Tester D-MT chances of re-election and hold onto their slim Senate majority.

During the contentious budget battle of Spring 2011,  Senator Tester slipped a wolf delisting rider, that prohibits judicial review, into a must pass budget bill. Every Senate Democrat voted for it save three, Wyden, Leahy and Levin.  The very same Democrats who pretend to be  supporters of the ESA weakened it, by stripping wolves of their Endangered Species protections and turning them over to hostile state management, all for a few votes.

To add insult to injury the USFWS under the Obama administration delisted wolves in the Great Lakes (Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin). Minnesota and Wisconsin immediately planned wolf hunts for 2012/2013 but the Wisconsin hunt was challenged in court. Judge Anderson granted an injunction to stop the hunt because Wisconsin wanted to allow hunters to use up to six dogs to hunt to wolves to their deaths.  A Michigan state representative has introduced legislation to allowing wolf hunting. This is the dire situation wolves find themselves in. Wyoming is planning to allow wolves to be shot-on- sight in 80% of the state,  as of October 1, 2012 but faces legal challenges from two coalitions of environmental groups.

Please remember on November 6, 2012 what the US Senate Democrats did to betray wolves. If your Senator is not Wyden, Leahy or Levin  vote them out of office.  We cannot allow politicians to play fast and loose with our wildlife.

Wolves not endangered in Rockies? Activists arm for fight

By Kim Murphy

September 4, 2012, 5:38 p.m

On Aug. 30, activists held a rally in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, to memorialize the more than 540 wolves killed in Idaho and Montana wolf hunts since the species was removed from the endangered list in those states in 2011. Last year’s tally in Idaho alone was 379 wolves — not counting wolves killed by government wildlife agents seeking to prevent livestock predations.

“Of the 379 wolves killed in last year’s hunt, 40 were puppies, 56 suffered in leg-hold traps before being killed, and another 67 choked to death in snares,” Ann Sydow of the Northern Idaho Wolf Alliance, one of six organizations sponsoring the rally, said in a statement.

Montana Wolf Hunt Over, Maybe….

The Montana wolf hunt ended today after midnight but it may not be over yet.

http://fwp.mt.gov/hunting/planahunt/huntingGuides/wolf/default.html

Montana FWP is considering extending the hunt in the Bitterroot until April 1, 2012, when pregnant alphas have returned to their den sites  awaiting the birth of their pups. They are virtually tied to their dens and it would be like shooting fish in a barrel for any wolf hunter. To their credit Montana FWP commissioners Ron Moody and Bob Ream have spoken out against the extension.

From the Missoulian

“Fair chase hunting is not infinitely elastic,” Moody said. “It has limits and I think we are at those limits, and what I really think is we have gone past them.

“… It does matter and it is important: what you do when you call yourself an ethical hunter and when you do it. It can result in the diminishing stature of hunters in the public’s mind.”

Moody and Commissioner Bob Ream, who also voted against extending the wolf hunting season until April 1 or when the area’s quota of 18 gray wolves is met, voiced concerns about killing the animals during their reproductive season.

So far, only four wolves have been killed by hunters in the area along the Idaho border.

Ream and Moody, along with some members of the public who spoke at the meeting, also questioned whether removing 18 wolves from the Bitterroot would help the faltering elk population, since an ongoing study is showing that more elk calves there are being killed by mountain lions and bears than by wolves.

“If we are concerned about the elk populations in (the Bitterroot), we are shooting at the wrong target,” Ream said.

FWP Commission gives initial OK to extended Bitterroot wolf hunt

The final vote on extending the wolf hunt season in the Bitteroot is expected today.

I will continue the memorial for wolves killed in the brutal hunts. The death toll stands at 464 in the combined hunts. Montana 166 dead wolves, Idaho 227 wolves shot, 71 wolves trapped or snared to death.

Why do they have to die?

New Full Moon Vigil Pictures….

Lori Lumgair,  Full Wolf Moon Vigil, California

Update: February 5, 2012 

New beautiful Full Wolf Moon vigil pictures from Lori L. and Brea for our fallen 426 wolves.

Update: January 22, 2012

I’ve added new vigil  pictures from Blue Phoenix, who lives “down under”.  Wolf persecution is global and even though Australia does not have  wolves they do have the dingo, who is also scapegoated and killed like wolves. Pure dingo genetics is decreasing due to mating with domestic dogs.

Thank you Blue Phoenix for holding a vigil for the beleaguered Northern Rockies wolves.  Sadly the death toll has increased considerably from 337 to 388.

===

I want to again thank wolf advocates for honoring the fallen wolves slaughtered in the Idaho/Montana hunts. The purpose of the Full Wolf Moon Vigil was twofold:

1. To remember the wolves who’ve died

2. To bring attention to their plight.

There were many vigils held around the country and the world, including France, Australia and Denmark. Wolves are beloved and iconic animals, who have hundreds of thousands of supporters. We will have other vigils and protests as long as the wolf hunts in Montana and Idaho continue. Ann S. and Nancy Taylor did a great job organizing the vigil in Coeur d’ Alene.  It was covered extensively by the media, including 3 television stations and NPR radio.  Other vigils are represented below. We will update this page as we receive new pictures. Keep them coming everyone. You can post them on:

ALERT: Full Wolf Moon Candlelight Vigil, Monday, January 9th, 2012. Where? Across America and the World!!

UPDATE: January 8, 2012 (6:00 pm)

I have an idea that will bring more exposure to this event. You can call local media to tell them you plan a vigil for wolves slaughtered in the Montana/Idaho hunts, now totaling  337 wolves and ask them to cover your event OR you can take your own pictures of your vigil and if you feel comfortable,  post them in the comment section of this blog or post the link to the  pictures and I’ll make a montage of everyone’s pics.  That would be another way to draw attention to the wolves’ plight.

Post your pics on your Facebook or Twitter accounts and Howl Across America as well!

UPDATE: January 8, 2012

I’m very gratified for the terrific response we’ve gotten for this vigil. Thank you and I know the wolves would  thank you if they could. There is only one thing that we ask. If you can please try to gather in groups in a public place, with a few friends or with many friends. I know people will light candles in their homes and that’s wonderful but there are two reasons we are holding this vigil.  One is to honor the wolves who have fallen and continue to die but also to bring attention to their plight. We were hoping that when you gather you would notify the local media and let them know you will be holding a candlelight vigil for wolves in the Northern Rockies, who are dying.  This is a way we can truly get the word out to the rest of the country, since the mainstream media refuses to do it. So please make a special effort to pass the word along to gather in groups, they don’t have to be large. Notify your local media and make sure they know where you’ll be and what you’re doing.

Please notice the picture in the middle of this post. It was taken of two wolf advocates in Nampa, Idaho, in November. They contacted the local newspaper and the Tribune came and covered their event. That picture made it to the LA Times. They were just two people, trying to make a difference and they did.

The old adage “a picture is worth a thousand words” is so true. Imagine hundreds or even thousands of pictures like that in newspapers around the country. Think what an effect that would have!

We don’t have much time warriors. Wolves are dying at an alarming rate and we could lose them forever. We need your help.  The grass roots wolf movement is what will turn this around. We have the power of numbers, if we would only use them!!

For the wolves, For the wild ones

Monday, January 9, 2012,  is the night of  the Full Wolf Moon.  The date changes every year, it’s the first full moon in January. Legend surrounding this moon is rooted in Native American culture.

Wolf Moon 2012

December 27th, 2011 by Nannette Richford

“The wolf moon, sometimes referred to as the “snow moon,” occurs on January 9, 2012. Although the full moon won’t look any different from other full moons during the year, it conjures up images of wolf packs howling at the moon. In fact, that is exactly how the wolf moon got its name. According to Native Americans, January is the time of year when wolves are often heard howling over the snow-covered landscape.

According to the Binghamton University  Newsroom, whether wolves actually howl at the moon is unknown. Its belief is likely connected to the fact that wolves howling travels great distances in the still of the night. It may be more noticeable during the full moon because man is more likely to be outside to gaze at its beauty or take advantage of the light.

Wolves howl for several reasons: to reassemble the pack, to warn nearby wolves of their territory, to celebrate a kill and to express joy when new cubs are born. The thought that wolves may also howl out of sheer loneliness – or at the beauty of the full moon – is not farfetched, but simply has not been verified.

Some tribes refer to the January full moon as the snow moon – but most reserve that name for the full moon in February when snow is often deeper in northern climates.

Whatever you call it, a full moon in the midst of winter often appears so bright that the night takes on an mystical glow from the light of the moon as it reflects off  the snow-covered landscape.

Although the moon isn’t technically “full” until 2:30 am, moonrise occurs at 5:04 – less than an hour after sunset – and will be visible in the night sky until just before sunrise the following morning. Moonset occurs at 7:10 am only 4 minutes before the sun returns – promising a spectacular display if the weather remains clear.”

Howling for Justice, NIWA, Wolf Warriors and Howl Across America are asking wolf advocates to  honor the fallen wolves, who continue to die in the Montana and Idaho hunts, by holding candlelight vigils across this country on Monday, January 9, 2012.

NIWA is holding a candlelight vigil in downtown Coeur d’ alene on Monday, twilight @ 4:30pm, timed to watch the Full Wolf Moon emerge. They will be playing Louise Du Toit’s beautiful music, Howl Across America and For Every Fallen Wolf .

Please visit Howl Across America for further details.

Wolf Warriors, if you can gather a group of advocates together, we suggest you find a public place in your home town for this peaceful vigil.  It’s imperative you notify the local media or if you live in a larger city, the national media. Let them know you will be holding a candlelight vigil to protest the wolf hunts in Idaho and Montana and  honor the  fallen wolves dying brutal deaths,  now numbering 335!! You can also stand outside your home or a place of your choosing, if you cannot find a group to gather with, to honor the fallen wolves on this special night.

You may  post your vigil on Howl Across America, to allow other advocates who live in your area to organize with you.

Wolf advocates around the world, please feel free to join us, when the Full Wolf Moon rises!

Candle Light Vigil Held To Honor Wolves in Nampa, Idaho on November 29, 2011

We hope this event will take place across America and the world.  Please make every effort to attend the vigil,  wherever you may be, to protest the ongoing, brutal, political witch/wolf hunts in the Northern Rockies.

For the wolves, For the wild ones,

Nabeki

Idaho “Candelight Vigil For Wolves” Photo Makes The LA Times!!!

“Candlelight Vigil for Wolves
Tuesday, Nov. 29, Action at 3101 S. Powerline Road Nampa, Idaho In front of the Fish and Game building. This will be a candle light vigil to mourn the loss of these wolves. Feel free to bring a sign if you so choose. Rain or shine. I’ll aim to be there from 4;45pm to 6pm.”

===

This  amazing picture, of a candlelight vigil held for wolves in Nampa, Idaho,  on November 29, 2011,  was posted in the LA Times yesterday,  highlighting  comments made about  J. William Gibson’s Thursday’s article, The New War On Wolves.

Thank you to the organizers for holding the candle light vigil in memory of the 260 fallen wolves killed in the hunts. The photo  is especially relevant today because  Montana FWP announced yesterday they were extending the wolf hunt through February 15, 2012. The hunt was  supposed to end December 31, 2011. Wolf advocates sent comments to  Montana FWP, asking them not to extend the hunts.  Apparently those pleas fell on deaf ears. This will make the holiday season a sad one for wolf advocates and a horror for wolves.

Idaho’s hunt already extends thru March 31, 2012 in most of the state but in the Lolo and Selway zones it runs all the way to June 2012, ten long months, right through wolf breeding, denning and pupping season. Is there no end to the cruelty?

Here’s the link to the Opinion page of the LA Times where the picture is posted.

The New War On Wolves…

As soon as federal protection ended, the slaughter began.

By J. William Gibson

December 8, 2011

Congress removed wolves in Montana and Idaho from the protection of the Endangered Species Act in April. And this fall, the killing began.

As of Wednesday, the Idaho Department of Fish and Game reported that 154 of its estimated 750 wolves had been “harvested” this year. Legal hunting and trapping — with both snares to strangle and leg traps to capture — will continue through the spring. And if hunting fails to reduce the wolf population sufficiently — to less than 150 wolves — the state says it will use airborne shooters to eliminate more.In Montana, hunters will be allowed to kill up to 220 wolves this season (or about 40% of the state’s roughly 550 wolves). To date, hunters have taken only about 100 wolves, prompting the state to extend the hunting season until the end of January. David Allen, president of the powerful Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, has said he thinks hunters can’t do the job, and he is urging the state to follow Idaho’s lead and “prepare for more aggressive wolf control methods, perhaps as early as summer 2012.”

107 Dead Wolves….

Thank you Michaela, a very powerful video!!

The wolf/witch hunt stands @ 107 dead wolves and counting. It was 102 last night but 5 more wolves have died. Will we stand quietly by while wolves are slaughtered? Or will we speak out and protest this outrage? Where’s the media?
