The Howl In, Phone In held by Friends of Animals in New York City today was a success.
“Activists, holding a protest at New York City’s Central Park, told Citydesk that they “had great response from the public today,” encouraging citizens to call Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter, pledging to boycott Idaho until the wolf hunting season, which began today, stops. Protestors said they have launched an international boycott of Idaho, Montana and Wyoming regarding the hunts.
“One woman named Christina Rose from Australia said she was cancelling her tour of Yellowstone National Park after learning about (the hunt),” said Edita Birnkrant of Friends of Animals, the organization sponsoring today’s protest. “That’s just one story of many who were educated today about the bloody hunt happening in Idaho right now.”
Thank you Friends of Animals.
We need more Howl Ins like this one to tell Idaho and Montana that Americans and people from all over the world love wolves and support them. They do not want to see them destroyed for the hunting and ranching lobbies, who dominate politics in the wolf states. These wolves do not belong to a small group of wolf haters, they are part of our American heritage and we’re not going to sit quietly by while they are slaughtered. Speak up people. Hold a Howl-In in your hometown. Visit Howl Across America and learn how to organize peaceful protests.
Share this with everyone you know. Stand for wolves!
