Vote NO For The 81 US Senators Who Betrayed Wolves…

Quanah Animal Edutainment

81 Senators, the majority Democrats,  sacrificed Northern Rockies gray wolves on April 14, 2011, when they voted to  pass a budget bill hiding a wolf delisting rider. I guess they didn’t think we’d notice. President Obama signed the bill into law.

They betrayed wolves, gutted the Endangered Species Act and for what? To protect their majority in the Senate by supporting fellow Democrat Senator Tester’s wolf rider he slipped into the bill,  with the approval of  Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid D-NV.  Only three Democrats voted no: Patrick Leahy D-VT, Ron Wyden D-OR, Carl Levin D-MI. One Independent also voted against the bill, Bernie Sanders of VT.

Wolves are now being decimated in Montana and Idaho due to this delisting. It opened the door for other states to follow suit, including Wyoming, Wisconsin and Minnesota.

Please hold these Senators accountable on election day and vote them out of office. Sadly not all are up for re-election but if they are please cast a big NO VOTE for each and every one of them. The Dems are the worst because they pretended to care about the ESA and wolves but in the end, politics trumped the environment.  Their vote has caused untold suffering for gray wolves.

  1. I am truly sorry to say this – but voting against a Democrat will NOT help our cause. Surely Republicans will be no better, and a Republican majority in Congress could easily result in the worst possible situation in every federal court in the Nation, including the Cicuit Courts and the SCOTUS.

    Symbolically, I’d love to – but we’d be jumping from the frying pan into the fire.

      However, by the end of this week if she wins I’m sending her a letter telling her why I didn’t vote for her in the Primaries (WOLVES) and she is a 1%r who doesn’t give a crap about the environment and its creatures. I’m going to tell her the ONLY reason I voted for her b/c she is a DEM, more like DINO. I’m going to tell her to shape up and get educated on the wolf situation and that the Senate should not vote on a bill with “Riders” in there….in fact riders should be outlawed.

    • I agree. The Democrats generally have a better record on animal issues. The Republicans more often back the groups that love their guns and the good old boys that love to hunt. Besides Idaho and Wyoming, both involved in the hunts, are two of the most Republican states in the country. The conservatives are also more reluctant to stop anything involving animals that will bring someone a few bucks. Many Democrats seem to be too scared of being called “liberals” or “animal lovers” or “gree huggers” to take a stand against wolf hunting or other environmental issues.

  3. If I remember correctly, this vote was supposed to help Senator Jon Tester of Montana, a Democrat, prove that he was a better choice than his Republican challenger, who is even more conservative when it comes to wildlife, hunting, etc.That race is up for grabs, but Tester’s opponent is even worse. I too am passionate about wolves, and I remember all too well how awful it was under George W. Bush and his Secretary of the Interior. There science was disregarded and wolves were also much in danger. Wolves are in a dreadful situation now, but it would be even worse if the Republicans take the Senate and the Presidency.

    • Nancy I understand your frustration but Barack Obama delisted wolves within months after being sworn in as President, the first wolf hunts were held in Montana and Idaho mere months later. Not only did he delist wolves once but he delisted them twice by supporting and signing the budget/wolf rider bill that delisted wolves in the Northern Rockies without judicial review. He appointed a rancher to head the Interior and under Salazar our wild horses have been decimated. Now Obama’s USFWS has delisted wolves in the Great Lakes and Minnesota is killing them with a vengeance. I don’t know how you can say the Republicans could be worse. Under Obama 500 wolves died in 2009, hundreds more were killed in the 2011/2012 hunts and now we have three more states hunting wolves: Wyoming, Wisconsin and Minnesota.The death toll is almost at three hundred and it’s only November. Trapping starts in Idaho and Montana on November 15. These hunts will be a blood bath, all thanks to the Democratic controlled Senate and the President.

  15. It is a really hard time to vote. Right now I decide whether to vote for the Democrats who betrayed their environmental and animal rights constituents by agreeing to the wolf delisting or Republicans who will be worse. I can vote for the Green party candidate but is that throwing the vote away, as I am quite sure at this point in time the Green party won’t win. I am so disappointed in Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer for voting for the wolf delisting. I really don’t care what their reason was. Horrible cruelty by trapping is still painful suffering to the wolves no matter what reason they had for selling them and us out. As the wolves struggle to get out of the trap, try to chew their legs off, suffer with thirst and hunger and cold and howl in pain and loneliness for their family, they don’t understand that Feinstein and Boxer wanted to get something else passed and that is why they as wolves have to suffer painful, terrifying deaths. Why can’t Feinstein and Boxer have compassion and see that the wolf suffering is wrong,as we do? Don’t these politicians possess hearts and decency? They also support the Sportsman Heritage Act!! Google that. The democrats used to be for the animals and environment. What happened?

        I feel horrible for the wolf; much more so than the trapper-girl! After all, that poor creature was the one who lost her life (the wolf was female, not male)! In no way was I trying to imply that I only felt bad for the girl and not for the wolf.

        “A 14 year old should be able to tell right from wrong no matter how they were raised.” <– I wish that people were able to base their decisions solely on what is right or wrong but, unfortunately, that is not always the case and that raising does have a huge influence on how people view things. Some people just never question what they've been taught no matter how wrong it is. There are many examples of this throughout history, which I won't go into details over here. This is why I feel bad for the girl, because she was raised to accept trapping. And even if she did rebel against it at one time, her parents may of stopped her and made her tolerate trapping – which then lead to her passion for it. Like I said, I hope that the girl one day decides that trapping is cruel and quits it, but I doubt that'll ever happen. Perhaps we should let her know what happens to trapped animals, scenes that maybe she's never experienced before in her young trapper life.

      • Taxonomically speaking, coyotes are just little wolves; both coyotes and wolves belong to the genus Canis, and they are more closely related to each other than either are to the jackals (excluding Canis aureus, which is more closely related to wolves than to other jackals). Anyway, there’s a reason why coyotes are sometimes called “prairie wolves” or “brush wolves!”

  20. If you live in Montana, then please do NOT vote for Hills as governor. He is extremely anti-wolf, and wants to drastically reduce the wolf population and prevent natural recolonization. Basically, he would divide the state into two zones: an Aggressive Management Zone (in western MT) where wolves will be managed through harsh hunting and lethal control, and a No Tolerance Zone (the rest of MT), where absolutely NO wolves will be allowed, and as such they will be treated like VERMIN to be SHOT-ON-SIGHT (just like in WY)! I know that Bullock is not wolf-friendly either, but at least his wolf policies are not as extreme.

    Also, if you live in Idaho or one of the other states with a hunting rights amendment in the polls, then please vote NO on them! I don’t know about the specifics of the other states’ amendments, but Idaho’s is particularly worrisome (at least to me) because of this part: “to provide that public hunting, fishing and trapping of wildlife shall be a preferred means of managing wildlife.” This basically means that killing and torturing has superiority over ALL humane methods of wildlife management! What kind of society would support killing and torturing more than the developing non-lethal methods of managing wildlife (which have the right to live)?

    New polls show Rep. Tammy Baldwin, the Democratic candidate for Wisconsin’s vacant U.S. Senate seat, with a four-point lead over her Republican challenger, former governor Tommy Thompson, in a race which may determine control of the Senate and had previously been considered a lock for Republicans. If Baldwin is elected she would likely follow in the footsteps of Wisconsin’s Russ Feingold and be one of the more independent and progressive members of the U.S. Senate.

    Consider the list below as some of the ways to organize to save wolves and wild burros and horses also ( they have been slaughtered also ):
    1) Repeal AETA. Research it and you will clearly see why this is important.
    2) Repeal the Taylor Grazing Act. Same as above.
    3) Environmental orgs need to form a PAC to protect wildlife extermination and environmental destruction.
    ( I am tired of every .org begging for money when they will not consolidate and organize. The corporates have been so successful because of money, yes, but also they have masterminded ALEC (alec.org) and it is powerful.
    Also, I saw some tabulations of the yearly salary of some of the .orgs CEO’s, including HSUS, and I was $hocked. Austerity is here and I think a
    CEO making 4xxx,000 can reduce their salary to help polar bears a bit also.

    4) Demonstrations at the state level: at trapping/snaring clinics and state-funded training. The horrible pics need to go viral, as they are the truth.

  24. Thank you, Ida, for the inspiring story of your son freeing coyotes. They are possibly more tortured and maligned than wolves in most states. I was horrified by the story of the wildlife trapper (govt employee) who sics his dogs on them when he finds them in his traps. Hopefully Predator Defense can get this investigated but his boss said in an interview that it happens all the time. Sickos. Getting paid by the government for your own private dog fighting. But on the subject of releasing traps, I am not worried about getting hurt by the wolves. I am worried about the humans coming to check their traps and the possible huge injuries to the animal so that it can’t live anyway and must be humanely destroyed. I am not prepared for that and would need help. But then I would also destroy the pelt so that it could not be used by anyone, possibly burning it. It is a grizly business.
    In Afghanistan and Pakistan they have the Taliban running around killing people. In our country we have these psychopaths determined to destroy our wildlife. Only a strong, compassionate federal government can stop it. Seems like the House is still 50/50. Nothing will get done. The Senate is a little more liberal but they can’t do anything without the House. The Repubs can still fillibuster with just one person. We are stymied. The only thing that keeps me from moving to some other country is that they have either destroyed their wildlife already or are as hell bent as we are in doing so.

  25. Sorry for another really long post but this is a care two article also and it boggles my mind because the numbers are so differnet. I would like to know the numbers, really. I have a tendency to believe Nabeki’s more than any killing government agency working for the psychopathic ranchers.

    Conservationists and animal rights activists were appalled at the Federal government’s recent decision to kick Wyoming wolves off of the Endangered Species List. Careful examination of wolf population statistics reveal that Wyoming ranchers may have achieved this de-listing by exaggerating statistics about wolf attacks on grazing cattle.

    Wolves were once common throughout all of North America but were killed in most areas of the United States by the mid 1930s. Today their range has been reduced to Canada and the following portions of the United States: Alaska, Idaho, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Wisconsin and Wyoming. According to Defenders of Wildlife, there are an estimated 200,000 wolves left in 57 countries, compared to up to 2 million in earlier times.

    Wyoming ranchers in particular have resented the wolves’ protected status ever since they were included in the Endangered Species Act decades ago. The AP reports that ranchers and hunters started complaining that wolves were taking an unacceptable toll on cattle and wildlife soon after the federal government reintroduced the species to Yellowstone National Park in the mid-1990s.

    Since ranchers make their living raising cattle, many of which graze on the open range for several months of the year, it make sense that they would want to protect their livestock from hungry wolves. Hobby hunters are irritated that wolves follow their natural instinct to eat elk and other animals they’d rather shoot and mount on the wall. The facts, however, fail to support implications that hundreds of cattle are being senselessly slaughtered by bloodthirsty wolves on the prowl, and often extra elk hunting licenses have to be issued because herds have grown too big.

    A January 2012 report from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service shows that in 2011, wolves were responsible for the death of only 65 livestock (35 cattle and 30 sheep), one horse and one dog in Wyoming. In 2009 and 2010, the numbers were even lower, with 20 and 26 heads of cattle killed, respectively.

    The Fed’s strategy has always been to selectively remove these aggressive wolves from the population, allowing breeding adults that don’t cause trouble to remain with their packs. The Wyoming government, however, wasn’t satisfied, and fought to take back control of wolf management operations. Now, instead of being culled responsibly by trained wildlife professionals, wolves have been given “predator” status, meaning that they can be shot on sight, for any reason, at any time, by anyone.

    The Wyoming Game Commission has approved wolf hunts starting Oct. 1 in a flexible zone generally bordering Yellowstone’s eastern and southern flanks. The state is prepared to issue unlimited hunting licenses but claims it will call a halt after hunters kill 52 wolves.

    Unlike Idaho and Montana, which were granted legal immunity after getting their wolf populations de-listed, the Wyoming state government is still subject to lawsuits by environmental groups. Representatives from Earthjustice and the Natural Resources Defense Council have both indicated they will continue to oppose the decision.

    Take Action by signing the petition to Save Wyoming Wolves.

    PS. More cattle are killed by domestic dogs and people taking pot shots at them. Some cattle just lay down and put their feet up in the air and bloat. Who knows why? Cattle weren’t meant to be put out on a range to fend for themselves. It is a very lazy and irresponsible way to ranch. Please, please don’t eat beef! Write to the cattlemen’s association. Tell them you are boycotting beef until this slaughter stops. It’s infected with germs anyway. And the slaughter of these animals is done in a grossly inhumane way. I even heard a man on the slaughterhouse line testify that he was skinning them while they were still alive. DON’T EAT BEEF!!! Please
