Alaska has a deadly predator control program. They passed the “Intensive Management Law in 1994″  which gives the Board of Game the power to order the Alaska Department of Fish and Game to kill increased numbers of predators if they determine the moose or caribou populations have a decline.

Wolves and bears can be killed to boost game numbers, which in not based on science but politically driven, just as wolves are killed for agribusiness in the Northern Rockies. Their excuse for the law and “intensive management” is many Alaskans depend on caribou and moose for sustenance. Of course Alaska is not going to run out of ungulates because of wolves and bears. This is a terrible “management tool” that persecutes wolves and bears.  It’s similar to the persecution gray wolves suffer in the Northern Rockies, who may be killed for agribusiness by federal agents (Wildlife Services)

  1. im a major wolf enthusiast. im young but have a large interest in our wild canine friends. wolves help our echosystem in keeping the elk population in tact. if they disappear they will greatly effect the order of nature. if everyone would take the time to understand these misunderstood creatures it wouldnt be a problem and we can move on. the future of the wolves depend on efforts of conservationists and everyday people to take a stand and stop the killing of these essential and misunderstood animals.
    and i speak for all animals in this world!

    • So glad to hear your support for wolves. They are such amazing creatures with a complicated social structure yet are treated as disposable pests. It’s a shame so many wolves have lost their lives this year. But I’m encouraged by so many supporters like yourself that are willing to speak up for wolves! We can make a difference!

      • Jägarna i Sverige håller på att esterminera vargen från den svenska skogen. Sverigie behöver hjälp med protester. Säj till den svensksa länstyrelsen att vergen har rätt till sin existens och förbjuda jakten! Vi hjälper er och ni hjälper oss. Det går bra att använda min logg på facebook för detta endamål. Tack för att ni finns! Marta Berglund i Sverige.

  2. Nabeki,
    I am truly blown away by the scope of your site. I just stumbled across this blog & posted it up on my Facebook profile. Here are some of my likeminded thoughts on this wonderful kindred spirit we know as the wolf…

    This noble creature is the most enduring living symbol of our endangered wildlife & the very icon of wildness in the American West. The arguments for this rule change are largely political, emotional, & without merit; while the arguments against the rule are scientific, logical, & based on facts, not myths & misconceptions about wolves. Two of the primary reasons wolves were eradicated from their original habitat were these very reasons, ignorance & misinformation. Yet here, these same ideals are being used to support a ruling to further endanger wolves…

    Wolf populations have not reached the recovery goals necessary for delisting. The recovery of the Northern Rocky Mountain wolves is one of the greatest success stories of the Endangered Species Act… one supported & paid for by the American people. The return of the wolf has revived both the environment & the economy of the Northern Rockies. Sadly this dramatic success is being reversed just to satisfy a few politically powerful & slaughter shameless scumbags…

    I hope that what’s left of America’s conscience will unite against this senseless attack on an endangered species that is a world-renowned symbol of the American West…

    Nobeki I thank you so much for answering the call of the wild with your interesting, informative & inspiring blog. Keep up the great work……

    In solidarity, ~Flash~

    • Hi Flash,
      Thank so much for the kind words and I’m glad you discovered the site. I hope you and your friends will visit often. This is a place for wolf advocates to speak without fear of harassment.

      Idaho’s wolves are under attack as we speak. This is what their legislature is up to:

      Sixtieth Legislature Second Regular Session 2010



      They want their numbers reduced and we all know what that means. Maybe they think Judge Molloy will relist them and they want to kill as many wolves as possible before his ruling. Whatever their motives, Idaho has made it clear that they have declared war on their wolves. If you and everyone you know that cares about wolves would write, email or call the Idaho contacts I have listed here, the wolves would thank you. Spread the word!! http://howlingforjustice.wordpress.com/take-action-for-wolves/

      Thank you for reading and welcome,

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

      • Hi Nabeki,
        This is obviously a travesty, what is the best way to motivate en

        masse? ONE GIANT petition on change.org. WE need to have one

        huge signature page, hundreds of thousands signing one petition.

        I have resources and friends that are like minded with substantial

        resources. How can we effectuate change, boycott those states that

        are allowing this gruesome hunt, ? Yes!

        Would a huge add in the NY Times accomplish anything?

        I know NRDC has a rememdous following, do you/we act in

        concert with them?

        Really I think that the only way to get the MOST people outraged

        is by getting pictures of wolves in leg traps and being shot, on CNN.

        I don’t know anyone at a major media outlet, but someone in your

        group must. Any person who owns a dog, upon seeing a wolf shot

        will recoil in horror in seeing the graphic images. There are 10’s

        of millions of people who would react. We need to get the story on

        CNN immdeiately for a huge impact.. NOW that the iconic 06′

        female has been killed is the perfect time…

        Can you e Mail me so we can coordinate today?

        I’m ready to fight back, NOW!!!


      • Ron…I love your passion. There are two petitions to relist on the front of the blog, each have almost 10,000 signatures. Could you please share them with everyone you know?

        We have tried for the last four years to get somebody, anybody on MSM television to cover this story but nobody has been willing to do it except Jane Velez-Mitchell. She’s had several shot spots on her show, she is dedicated animal rights activist. But as for the rest of the networks and the cable..they will not cover this. I think it’s because on the run up to the election they did not want people to know that this all happened under a Democrat president. So they just look the other way.

        I saved your email. Contact me on Facebook Wolf Warriors (http://facebook.com/wolfwarriors)

        For the wolves, For the wild ones,

  3. It’s a pleasure to be aboard! I shall communicate with all of the contacts you’ve listed in the aforementioned response & spread the word far & wide. I am a wolf advocate who will stand tall against anyone who irrationally slaughters wolves. Harassment from cowardly barbaric wolf killers will not faze me in the least as I am well prepared to deal with them on any level “they” care to engage in. Be it any communicative form (intelligent dialog) or if “they” so choose other means. Let’s face it these lowlifes are not pussyfooting around with our wolves. They will find a formidable foe that can fight back unlike the defenseless wolves they so ruthlessly & irresponsibly execute……

    Peace, ~Flash~

    PS: Nabeki have you given any thought to place this blog on Facebook. It has a far reaching network of folks worldwide.

    • Flash…great to have you. We need every wolf advocate to stand up for them in this dark time. Thank you for taking the to time write the contacts and protest what is going on in Idaho. And thanks also for spreading the word.

      I do have a FB account but it isn’t linked to the blog like my Twitter account is. Thanks for that suggestion.

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

  4. I’m Erydiam, I am a truly protector of the wild animals and the wolf has been always my spirit because I love freedom.
    Please do not think the wrong way by my metal page. You could count with my help whenever you want.
    We, the sons of freedom are ready to fight.

  5. Going to send an e-mail to Obama…

    • Good Loua, maybe he’ll wake up and realize his failed delisting policy caused untold suffering for wolves and ruined fifteen years of wolf recovery. Nice job.

  6. Nabeki,
    Thanks for all you are doing to help the wolves! I will share this post with all the members of the Northern Idaho Wolf Alliance(NIWA). I write NIWA’s newsletter. Please add mpatrick@cdapress.com as contact for letters to the editor for the Coeur d’Alene Press. (400 word limit)

    • Hi Ann,

      I appreciate your kind words. I will keep fighting for wolves as you and the members of NIWA are and make sure to add the email for the Coeur d’Alence Press.

      Thank you for all you do for wolves!!

      PS. I added NIWA to the blogroll!

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

  7. Management should be based on SOUND SCIENCE, not politics. Wolves don’t care about politics, they don’t care if they kill a cow, all they care about is of having a meal for themselves and their families. And the government is treating them like objects, not living beings. I completely support scientifically based management, but THIS? THIS is simply RIDICULOUS!!!
    I think this is only the beginning of the end for wolve sin the West…

    • By the way, I was looking around the Greenpeace website and I found an article, of whom I quoted this:

      “The imminent resumption of wolf hunting raises the question of whether conservation efforts around the world are there for the sake of the species and the ecosystems in which they live or simply for the sake of future exploitation.”

      And exploitation with a still not genetically viable popuation of wolves. This is insane.

      Forgive for my terrible english, lol

      • I think the answer to Greenpeace’s question Loua is very clear, the wolves are here for future exploitation. They are treated like vermin and killed like them as well. It’s disgusting. But we have to keep speaking out and letting the powers that be know the majority of the American people and people around the world, do not want wolves hunted or slaughtered for agribusiness.


  8. As long as we have certain individuals and “conservation” groups like Defenders who continue to kiss the asses of these cow growers, I don’t think this situation will change.
    The people that hate wolves don’t abandon their principles for fear of “losing funding”. They stick together ,,,,when was the last time you heard of anyone from the livestock industry want to “compromise” or write guidelines on “how to coexist with predators”? Their groups are pro-active, holding anti wolf rallies, sponsoring speakers, writing letters to the newspapers etc.
    Ever heard of Defenders or any other large mainline conservation group holding a pro-wolf rally? Hell no! ….. don’t want to piss off the ranchers!
    Montana recently held a hearing in which the wolf quotas were increased….the Greater Yellowstone Coalition was the only group that showed up to question the decision. On the “kill more wolves side” was the National Wildlife Federation, The Montana Wildlife Federation, the ranchers and outfitters.
    Read George Weurthners book..”Welfare Ranching” or Denzel Ferguson’s book…”Sacred Cows at the Public Trough”………..
    If you donate to any “conservation group” tell them they won’t get another cent till they speak out LOUDLY for wolves.
    Lastly, here’s a quote , once again, from Ed Abbey:
    “Almost anywhere and everywhere you go in the American West you find hordes of [cows]…. They are a pest and a plague. They pollute our springs and streams and rivers. They infest our canyons, valleys, meadows, and forests. They graze off the native bluestems and grama and bunch grasses, leaving behind jungles of prickly pear. They trample down the native forbs and shrubs and cacti. They spread the exotic cheatgrass, the Russian thistle, and the crested wheat grass. Weeds. Even when the cattle are not physically present, you see the dung and the flies and the mud and the dust and the general destruction. If you don’t see it, you’ll smell it. The whole American West stinks of cattle.”
    ~ The late Edward Abbey, conservationist and author, in a speech at the University of Montana in 1985

    • I know defenders of wildlife does not kiss there assess trust me there fighting for wolves every waking second.

  9. Hi Nabeki its really a great post helping me to sent mail in every each contact (friends people i know did the same) but i dint stop there also sent in BBC and National Geographic asking to be part in our fight…

  10. Pertinent contacts and address should be posted regarding the Mexican Wolf as well. These wolves are in a critical state. I have been supporting the Mexican Wolf for a long time. They need to enforce poaching of endangered species laws open another recovery area in the Grand Canyon area at the very least.

    • You are right Chris. I’ll have the information up soon.

      I’ve always thought Grand Canyon National Park should be a wolf recovery area.

      Thanks for giving me a heads up.


  11. Thanks for so much valuable info in one spot!

    People need to be made more aware of the lack of conservation with gray wolves.
    I am a student currently attending Fleming College in Lindsay On, Canada. I have a project coming up where I have to talk to my fellow students about the gray wolf. I am interested in using the photographs that are on this website. Would this be acceptable? Please let me know,

    All the best,

    Megan Halliwell

    • Thank you so much Megan for your kind words. You can use the pictures on the blog. They don’t belong to me. Just give credit to the original photgraphers if you can identify them.


  15. My goodness, that’s a lot of links.

    So, were are contacting them to pursuade them not to kill the wolves in the Northern Rockies?

    I shall do my best!

  16. i am currently writing a book on wolves and discuss the history of the bounties. you have some great photos on your blog showing the countless pelts hanging. would you be able to share a photo that i could print in the book without any copyright issues? you would be credited. thanks for your good work.

  17. There is no reason for wolves being murdered..Animals in the wild are there for a reason and humans are killing them all in an alarming rate, along with pets.. Those that murder wolves and other animals go home and pet their dogs or cats and see nothing wrong with that.. I don’t know how they sleep at night.. I was thinking.. Back in history, the Europeans murdered cats and that caused the black death because the cats were not alive to kill the mice, who carried the plague.. It’ is possible that another plague could occur because the wolves are here to help us not to have something like this happen now..

  18. THREE WOLVES have already been killed in the Idaho Hunt. The slaughter of innocents has begun. Speak out people!

  19. I agree wolves do help the ecosystem but those hell bent on killing anything just dont want to hear it.

    • You are so right kathleen.

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

  20. The problem is http://www.saveelk.com. This site demonizes the canis lupus species and is where all of the sentiment against wolves comes from. The “facts” offered are nothing more than outdoor magazine articles, letters, hearsay, unpublished articles, and pictures of carcasses (so-called wolf kills). The pictures are of just carcasses. There is no evidence of wolf tracks and size of tracks using a tape measure. There is not biological evidence of wolf bite marks on the carcasses. For all we know, it could just be a road kill that some carnivorous birds got into!

    • Hi Jason,

      I agree groups like that are demonzing wolves but IMO have no credibility, after all the creator of saveelk was found guilty of poaching a bull elk. How hypocritical can you get, you accuse wolves of killing elk, which they have to do to live but then go out and poach an elk.

      Elk poaching anti-wolf leader punished

      Tony Mayer can’t hunt or fish in Idaho for poaching big elk-


      As for those pics, who knows where they get them. Wolves are predators and no predator kills it’s prey nicely. Do African lions tap their prey on the shoulder and say, excuse me but can I kill you? Of course that’s silly but these people don’t understand predation or what it’s all about. The predator that kills for fun and causes so much suffering are trophy hunters not wolves.YouTube is full of disgusting videos of tortured, suffering and dead wildlife, with their killers smiling over them like Cheshire cats.

      Being a wolf is so hard, only one in ten hunting attempts are successful. Now they’re facing bullets, traps and snares, it’s so horrific I find it hard to think about.

      BTW I removed your second paragraph but something to think about.

      For the wolves, For the wild ones

  21. Dear Mr. Presidents

    Please stop killings of all the horses & wolves & other animals all over the world especially the wolves because they help to keep the sick animals away from the animals that aren’t sick. So please sign a bill that will keep all animals well.

    Sign Debra M. Hawkes

    • Thank you Secondfeather.

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,



  24. Thanks for giving me the link to this page; this is just what I need! As to how I didn’t find this page earlier I will never know. Very useful information, except…where is the contact info for the Governor of Wyoming? I don’t see it…

  25. honestly, i feel we ,the supporters of wolves and a healthy eco-system , one in which our predators(excluding humans) are vital, are swimming SO against the tide.but i will not give up.i am an artist ,painter/drawer of wolves ,and will do what i can through my medium to raise people’s awareness.i have a show coming up in atlanta next month ,march,2012 .one of my wolf drawings is in a jackson hole resort hotel,where i hope it can reach people, who might take time to think a little more deeply about their natural world..an audio accompanies this piece with my voice as i try to speak(as best i can) for the wolves and their continuing importance in this world.thank you for your blog..i don’t usually write on them but this one touches me deeply.

  26. Stop killing wolves and start educating people as to why wolves are an important part of keeping environments balanced by maintaining biodiversity that contribute to a healthy ecosystem.

  27. Jordens vilda djur klarar sig så länge det tvåbenta odjuret håller sig borta från skogen. Vargen, björnen, räven och alla vilda djur har alltid funnits och levt i naturen MEN jägarna håller på att esterminerar naturens vilda djur. Jagarnas utnyttjar hundarna som sex objekt också. Ibland undrar jag om inte hundarna inners inne önskar att dö istället för att vara en jägarens slav. Kräverlagen som förbjuder jakten. Sverige bahöver stöd från andra länder som protesterar. Säj till sveriges länstyrelsen att vi kräver lagen som förbjuder jakten på varg.

  28. THANKS TO ALL that work constantly trying to stop this horrible behavior. IT really speaks loudly for our country to be allowing such cruel behavior to happen? No one can understand how this much pull can be done with hunting organizions and Policies. THE profits being made on OUR WOLVEs and the slaughters that continue are beyond any logical persons understanding. I can only hope with the constant pounding and calling, writing letters, that thousands and hopefully millions will SAY NO MORE stop KILLING OUR ANIMALS. THanks for all that stand up and PRAY FOR JUSTICE for this BELOVEd ANimal.

  29. Take care of your wildlife America, they are what make your great land unique!

  30. If the human race thinks it is the most dominant and intelligent of all other life on this planet, then why are we not protecting, caring and nurturing all other species? We share this planet we do not own it!

  31. It is our duty being the principle occupiers of our planet, should protect and respect the other creatures with whome we share our beautiful earth.

  32. i agree peace

  33. I live in France,I love wolves and I agree with you Nabeki!

  34. We are the most killing species on Earth and the most prolific killers. We slaughter so many animals for food, but foolishly support the industry when they worry about wolves killing a woefully small number of food for themselves and we endorse their torture and their pain and sufferering for the few. We must work to protect this magnificent animal and one of God’s creatures.

  35. Wow nice list of info well done!

    • Thanks Mato….I’ve worked on it for quite awhile but I still need to add more. It’s a work in progress.

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

  36. Hi All,

    As an international person watching this, I did feel powerless to have my voice heard as the feedback forms require an American address.
    My solution was to google the address of each of the senators etc. and use their address to voice my concerns, I then told the next senator that this was the last address, he could check to see and of course his address would be used for the next right up to the White House, that way everyone new that someone recieved an e-mail all the way up and could be follwed all the way down.
    I politely addressed my concerns and as a potential tourist my dollars could be spent elsewhere, I did say wildlife management is a co-operative process between a number of parties and a balanced humane approach in our modern world is what the majority of thoughtful people and of course healthy eco-systems need.
    Australia did its part in killing native animals through ignorance our eagles, dingoes suffered as did our environment with the extinction of a large amount of native animals due to introduced species. The native animals we killed maintained a balance even with introduced foxes and cats, we now look after these animals. We do have a long way to go because of the sporting hunters and the kill, kill mentality, but hopefully we can progress.
    Thanks for the list, I will continue to work my way through the list and if any international people are having trouble, do what I have done.
    Thanks for helping the wolves Howling for Justice and my thoughts go out to all the apex predators in your country as the hunting season approaches.

  37. I see you do not have Wisconsin information listed. What do you need from us? We are in the middle of the first (and I hope not the only) lawsuit. I will have a column out on it Sunday – but let me know what contact information you need for Wisconsin.

    • Hi Patricia,

      I’ll have the info on Wisconsin and Minnesota up soon. Idaho and Montana start first. I hope the judge grants an injunction today to stop the wolf hunt in Wisconsin while the lawsuit moves forward.

      I’m going to be off and on the website the next couple of days but should have everything updated by Wednesday, September 5.

      Any info you’d like to provide will be helpful. I plan to use the same format for the Wisconsin and Minnesota hunts.

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

  38. *Long Howl*

    Greetings, Nabeki. Thank you for putting all of this together and keeping it updated. I know our four-legged brothers and sisters would thank you themselves if they could. Although I am not as able to help them as I would like, your blog here, the information you keep updated for us, and your dedication are a great inspiration to me. They remind me that even though my life is in the straits, I must still remember to take the time to help them in whatever ways I can. Thank you for this as well.


  39. Hi Nabeki
    Thank you for work. I’m writing to ask if you know of any plans to stage demonstrations. Is there an actual wolf supporter group in Spokane? Do you feel that it’s too dangerous? Can we organize something creatively to grab attention, like PETA is so good at?
    Forgive me if these are questions are naive–I’m trying to work through this overwhelming anguish and figure out something more effective to do
    Again, thank you.


  40. Nabeki. . .

    Thank-you for this beautiful site. Have been on internet since 1974 but prefer natural world so try to keep it minimal…comment on news at one site. Signed in here i think it was the day after seeing the Wedge Pack News on King 5 Sunday and was searching for kindred souls…was relieved to find you. Heart and Howls . . .

    • So glad to have you L.B. We are in anguish over the execution of the Wedge pack and their five month old puppies, whom they are tracking down as I type this. Please continue to contact the Governor over this cowardly act. Wolves should always trump cows on public land!!

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

  41. Like Gennie, I too am wondering if anyone here wants to get together and physically protest the killing of the wedge pack. I was thinking of doing this outside the natural resource building in olympia, spokane, or somewhere in seattle. If anyone is interested in joining me or knows of a way to do this effectively, please email me at daveycu@hotmail.com

  43. It’s open season on Wolves in Minnesota as of November 3rd. The DNR has approved hunters/trappers to kill up to 400 wolves during the season. I’ve no idea how they’re going to enforce this, as I’m sure there will be plenty of hunters that won’t report their kills, making the numbers more like 800-1000. There are currently about 3,000 wolves in Minnesota, which is a fairly stable, healthy population. Killing wolves is only going to make the packs breed more, especially if the alphas are killed. Allowing hunting of wolves is not the solution. They are sacred animals that deserve to be treated with respect. I agree with the statement in the article that questions how the hunters would fare if they were without their weapons and equipment. Mano a mano with the wolves; that is an encounter I’d like to see.

  44. Emailed everyone you mentioned here Nabeki… this hunting madness needs to stop

    • Thank you Billie…think if a hundred thousand people did the same…we could win this war in a week. Pass it on.

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

      • Exactly… if only… that’ll be my Christmas wish: that wolves are put back on the Endangered Species list…

  45. [...] It has come to light that 10 wolves, part of Yellowstone’s research projects have been killed by hunters. Because of the need to understand wolf behaviour, their research program is now damaged by the loss of collared wolves who roamed out of Yellowstone National Park. There are worries that hunters are targeting collared wolves, so for that reason I found it right to email senators, Fish & Wildlife and others involved in either wolf conservation or wolf hunters (thank you Nabeki for providing the data: http://howlingforjustice.wordpress.com/take-action-for-wolves/#comment-61929) [...]

  46. The wolves are being hunted into extinction. Special interest groups are scapegoating these poor wolves. They need to be protected.

  47. Hello everyone! I am not new to this fight scene for one of my very own totem animals that has been linked to my ancestors for decades, but I wanted to let you all know I HAVE JUST CREATED a master HARD COPY, OPENED LETTER to send out to EACH AND EVERY POSSIBLE KNOWN SOURCE! THIS IS the New Golden Age as indicated by the Mayan’s calendar and thoughts are energies in motion. Positive thoughts about everything will help to bring about more changes for us as well…especially for those that have awakened. Just know this… WE WILL STAND UNITED just as the Rainbow Tribe that is here now. We are ALL members of it and hold steady onto your faith of things and the O Great Spirit. The scales shall be tipped in weighing…

  48. Stop killing the wolves & pups.

  49. Everyone concerned about the pending extinction of wolves and the lies spread about them need to contact each and everyone o the above contacts.

  50. Arrêtez de tuer les loups , ils ne font rien de mal , ils contribuent à l’équilibre de la nature . Laissons les vivre tranquille , ils ont autant le droit de vivre que les humains.

  51. Enough is enough. I want the hunting and trapping of wolves banned and stopped.

  52. Thanks for providing the contact information to these various people and agencies. They will be very useful for when I write letters and petitions to them.

  53. Of course, the very people who support the killing of these wolves will be the first to complain when the populations of deer, elk, and other wild animals get out of control. They’ll then pass additional laws to allow the hunting of those animals. Nature has its own balance, and man has disrupted this balance to the point there is no going back. We will be the cause of our own demise.

  54. How about listing the actual names and contact information of the ranchers, hunters, trappers and guides who are directly responsible for killing (i.e exterminating) wolves and driving the legislative insanity? I would think this information is available and a matter of public record. Perhaps publicly exposing these cowards for their actions and what they are will have some effect.

  55. Please stop using our tax dollars to kill inocent Animals. We the need Wolves to help with our eco system. And Besides what harm are they doing?

  56. Hi ,the wolf was on Mother earth long befor humans as part of the creation. Please respect this creation as every animal has a reason and living together make our earth richer. We walk all together on Mother Earth. So they think some humans have the right to kill the wolf.


  58. Is there an updated list we can use to contact everyone? Love your blog btw xo

    • Thank you DeeCee. I really have to work on updating those contacts…some of them are still good but obviously Salazar is no longer at the Interior, thank god and there are other contacts that need to be added. You’ve reminded me of something I must get done, thank you. Glad you enjoy the blog, it’s not always pretty but I promise to always tell you the truth. Many howls to you.

      For the wolves, For the wild ones,

  59. If we truly want to stop the wolf slaughter, and we know, the majority of Americans want/support our wolves and do not support the wolf wars, we need to find a film producer, who is willing to film the slaughter and show it on tv and grab national attention!

    I’m confident, if the American public could witness the brutality of the wolf wars and their slaughter, we would have a national outrage!

    Of course, we would need the locality of specific areas of ongoing wolf slaughter!

    Let’s get this before the American conscience, nationally. Let’s bring this tragedy into American homes and let them view the slaughter before it’s too late!

    If not for wolves, America would not have dogs to rest at our feet and sleep on our hearths. Let’s reach America’s animal-lovers!

    • Agreed; we really need to make a “Blackfish”-type documentary about wolf hunting and the impacts it has on wolves and their pack structures.

  60. You are so correct. We need to find the producer who did Blackfish, and see if he’ll help us with this vital keystone specie, our Gray Wolves.

    Even my grandson announced how disturbed he was because of this film. Let’s show the slaughter of our wolves to America. If this film, Blackfish upset America’s kids, let’s let em see the slaughter of America’s wolves.

    After all, without wolves, we would not have pet dogs. Every American can connect with the spirit and souls of their dogs. Let every American, witness the ongoing slaughter of this vital keystone specie, the Gray wolf. ONWARD….

    We must strive and work for this.
