Wolf Warriors created a reward fund for the two murdered wolves that were found in Northwest Montana on November 6, 2010. One was discovered near Olney and the other in the North Fork of the Flathead.
From New West:
Two Wolves Shot in Northwest Montana; Reward Offered
By New West Staff, 11-16-10
From the U.S. Fish and Wildlife service:
On Nov. 6, 2010, two wild gray wolves were found dead in separate locations on the Flathead National Forest in northwestern Montana. One wolf was found dead along Coal Creek Road, while the body of the other dead wolf was recovered in the Miller Creek area. Both animals appeared to have died as a result of gunshot wounds.
Killing a wolf is a violation of the Endangered Species Act.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the agency responsible for enforcing the Endangered Species Act, is investigating the wolves’ deaths. There is a reward of up to $2,500 is for information leading to the identification and prosecution of the person or persons involved in the killing of these wolves. If you have information regarding this case, please contact the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Great Falls, Montana at 406-761-2286
Poaching has been increasing due to the toxic atmosphere surrounding wolves in the Northern Rockies. The fire has been stoked by the anti-wolf crowd.Idaho stopped their “management” of wolves turning everything over to the feds. Maybe they hoped USFWS wouldn’t be able to handle the workload for the law enforcement end of things, which means wolves could be killed and there wouldn’t be the man power to investigate each incident.
Wolf Warriors wants to send a message, with this fund-raiser, that wolf supporters are behind our federally protected wolves and want the poachers caught. We hope this money will lead to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible. It’s also our way to show support for wolves. It’s egregious beyond belief that wolves are being shot and left in plain sight. Apparently whoever is doing this is confident they won’t get caught and want to thumb their noses at law enforcement and wolf supporters, thinking they can get away with this without any consequences. Lets prove them wrong and show that wolves have tremendous support in the Northern Rockies and around the world.
Thanks to everyone who’s donated and shown support and care for wolves, we really appreciate it!
