Howling for Justice, NIWA and Wolf Warriors is launching HOWL ACROSS AMERICA on Facebook today.
During the entire month of August 2011, we would like to encourage wolf advocates everywhere to hold peaceful protests/rallies in their hometowns.
We can no longer sit on the sidelines, writing endless letters, faxing and calling, while the war against wolves rages on. It’s time to stand up and be heard.
Please join Wolf Warriors from across the country as we HOWL in protest against the escalating persecution of wolves in America, especially the Northern Rockies. We denounce the delisting of wolves by budget rider and the brutal wolf hunts proposed by Montana and Idaho for this coming fall. Wyoming also wants “unregulated killing of wolves” in most of their state. That means wolves would be classified under predator status and could be killed year round. This is outrageous and a slap in the face to everyone who worked so hard to bring wolves back to the Northern Rockies. Now, after just sixteen years, Wyoming, Idaho and Montana want to kill them.
Wolves are already hunted year round by Wildlife Services, for miniscule livestock depredations. We may be seeing a repeat of the first Western extermination and why wolves badly need ESA protection. It also demonstrates what wolf advocates have been stating all along, that the states cannot be trusted to care for wolves. They only seem to listen to two groups of people, ranchers and hunters, many of whom have made it quite clear they do not want wolves.
