I’ll Be On “Wild Clearwater Country” Radio Show Today, Talking Wolves…

UPDATE: APRIL 21, 2011

I really appreciate all the support I’ve gotten from fellow wolf advocates that were able to catch the show. Thank you so much. It made it so much easier knowing you were listening and sending me your support.

I again want to thank Gary Macfarlane. He is a terrific host and made everything so easy for me.

I’ll have a replay up of the show in a few days, early next week at the latest, in case anyone missed it.

We can make a difference for wolves. Remember it’s always darkest before the dawn.

It’s Not Over Until It’s Over and It’s Not Over….

The anti-wolfers are having themselves a grand ole time. They are chomping at the bit waiting for wolf hunts. What they don’t know or maybe fail to perceive is the delisting of gray wolves in the Northern Rockies has galvanized the grass-roots wolf advocacy movement.

The irony is for two years we’ve tried to get this story out of the Northern Rockies and were unable to do so. The same tired rhetoric was printed over and over in local newspapers.  The rallying cry of the anti-wolfers “Wolves Need To Be Managed” was a continual drumbeat. Just to remind everyone, manage is their code word for killing. It makes it all neat and tidy sounding. Slaughter doesn’t have the same ring.

The irony is out of this tragedy wolf advocates  have finally found their voice, they won’t be silenced anymore. Not only do wolves have supporters in this country but there are wolf advocates around the world. and they are speaking out.  New names pop up daily on this blog to express outrage over the dirty, rotten, disgusting way wolves were delisted in a budget bill, by Democrats no less.

Wolf advocates are so outraged they are mobilizing to defeat Jon Tester, who along with Rep. Mike Simpson (R-ID) inserted the wolf slaughter rider into a must pass appropriations bill.

Here is the infamous rider:

“Before the end of the 60-day period beginning on the date of enactment of this Act, the Secretary of the Interior shall reissue the final rule published on April 2, 2009 (74 Fed. Reg. 15123 et seq.) without regard to any other provision of statute or regulation that applies to issuance of such rule. Such reissuance (including this section) shall not be subject to judicial review and shall not abrogate or otherwise have any effect on the order and judgment issued by the United States District Court for the District of Wyoming in Case Numbers 09-CV-118J and 09-CV-138J on November 18, 2010.”

Politicians who thought they were so clever slipping the rider into the budget underestimated the support wolves really have in this country. They’ve been listening to their hunting and ranching buddies too long. Hunters are a tiny group, just twelve million. Wildlife Waters outnumber hunters  more than six to one.

Americans love  wolves and want Congress to protect them, not kill them. I guess that was lost on the infamous 81 Senators who voted yes to wolf hunts.

We may not have the answer or answers yet, that will remove wolves from peril but the delisting has sparked a movement that is growing by the day. It’s bigger then Jon Tester or Mike Simpson. It’s bigger then the wolf haters and their lies.

It’s not over until it’s over and it’s not over!!!

Stay Tuned!!
