New Full Moon Vigil Pictures….

Lori Lumgair,  Full Wolf Moon Vigil, California

Update: February 5, 2012 

New beautiful Full Wolf Moon vigil pictures from Lori L. and Brea for our fallen 426 wolves.

Update: January 22, 2012

I’ve added new vigil  pictures from Blue Phoenix, who lives “down under”.  Wolf persecution is global and even though Australia does not have  wolves they do have the dingo, who is also scapegoated and killed like wolves. Pure dingo genetics is decreasing due to mating with domestic dogs.

Thank you Blue Phoenix for holding a vigil for the beleaguered Northern Rockies wolves.  Sadly the death toll has increased considerably from 337 to 388.

I want to again thank wolf advocates for honoring the fallen wolves slaughtered in the Idaho/Montana hunts. The purpose of the Full Wolf Moon Vigil was twofold:

1. To remember the wolves who’ve died

2. To bring attention to their plight.

There were many vigils held around the country and the world, including France, Australia and Denmark. Wolves are beloved and iconic animals, who have hundreds of thousands of supporters. We will have other vigils and protests as long as the wolf hunts in Montana and Idaho continue. Ann S. and Nancy Taylor did a great job organizing the vigil in Coeur d’ Alene.  It was covered extensively by the media, including 3 television stations and NPR radio.  Other vigils are represented below. We will update this page as we receive new pictures. Keep them coming everyone. You can post them on:

ALERT: Candlelight Vigil, Nampa, Idaho (Monday January 30, 2012) STAND UP FOR WOLVES!!

UPDATE: January 30, 2012

The information I have is several people made it to Namba for the vigil, everyone was from Oregon, so a big shout out to those who traveled to Boise for this event. The details are a little sketchy but apparently an Idaho state biologist engaged the group in conversation.

Not sure if the media was present but I believe pictures were taken. In all it was a positive for wolves. We must continue the pressure on state game agencies to let them know there are wolf advocates who care about the slaughter of wolves in Idaho and Montana.  The death toll now stands @ 410 wolves. I will post more information on the vigil as I receive it. Keep up the good work wolf advocates!

Two devoted wolf advocates held a candlelight vigil, Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2011, in Nampa, Idaho, to bring attention to the plight of wolves in the Northern Rockies.  The news media covered the event and this incredible picture was picked up by the LA Times.

Their motivation:

“I was deeply disturbed when i heard the wolf was being taken off the endangered species list. And I needed a way to gain sympathy for the wolf. I believe that there are oil, minerals, coal, and timber resources in areas with wolves. For me i see plain and clear they kill the wolf so they can get at the resources which equals money. The only thing these corrupt corporations care about is money.”

Now they’ve organized another candlelight vigil for wolves in Nampa.

“Monday, January 30th at 4:45 pm at 3101 S. Powerline Rd., Nampa, Idaho. There is going to be another candle light vigil for the fallen wolves. If you missed the first one let’s try again.”

From Ann Sydow of NIWA:

At their last vigil, in November, only the organizers showed up !!
But they still got the awesome picture in the LA Times !  They also got local media attention,
Please attend and share with any other wolf supporters you know in the Boise area.  Thanks!

Four hundred wolves have been slaughtered in the Montana/Idaho hunts.We can’t stand silently by while the body count continues to rise without speaking out and bearing witness.  Our mission is to draw national attention to this tragedy and alert the public that America’s wolves are being slaughtered. These wolves are gone forever and will not be coming back.  Please speak out for the fallen 400.

Here are two signs made by Ann S. that were used at NIWA’s  Full Wolf Moon Vigil on January 9, 2012. The Idaho wolf death toll has obviously increased since then.

If you don’t live in the Boise area or are unable to travel there, you can hold your own candlelight vigil.  Tell your friends and hold a vigil together. Call your local media and let them know you’ll be holding a vigil for the slaughtered wolves in Montana and Idaho.

And we are making a difference. Yesterday, Saturday January 27, 2012,  Wolf Warriors and Howl Across America were mentioned on the front page of the New York Times, in an article about the iconic. wolf trailblazer,  OR-7.

“This month, people across the country attended full-moon, candlelight wolf vigils organized by groups with names like Howl Across America and Wolf Warriors.”

Thank you everyone who participated in the vigil  for the fallen Montana/Idaho wolves, who continue to be slaughtered in the hunts.

To Arctica and Nini, Wolf Peoples’s eight month old wolf pups, who were so cute on camera. To Beckie and  Trap Free Oregon for organizing the vigil in Ashland Oregon, to Wally, to Tallulah for the vigil in Santa Barbara, to Dr. Raven, to Agnes Delanis in France to Lynne S. , Katie, Brianna,  Keith n Anna for your wonderful picture, Wazaiyata, Norma, Sandra, wolfdog, Holly C., vibeke, Iszaria, Gitte, Erika,  Sheila, Barb, Josie, Zia, Captain Sakonna, N.Parry and all the dedicated wolf advocates who lit a candle for  wolves tonight.

NIWA had great success @ their vigil in downtown Coeur d’ alene.  KREM Channel 2 Spokane, KXLY Channel 4 Spokane, The Coeur d’ alene Press and NPR covered the vigil.  More on this tomorrow and hopefully people will be posting their pictures on Howl Across America so we can compose a montage and post them here on Howling for Justice. If you don’t want your face shown on the picture we’ll white it out.  We’d like people to tell us where your picture was taken but you don’t have to include that information. Also if you have a link to any media that covered your vigil let me know so I can post that as well.

HOWLS TO ALL FOR MAKING THIS A SUCCESS.

WE’LL BE DOING IT AGAIN IN THE NEAR FUTURE BECAUSE THE HUNTS CONTINUE!

For the wolves, For the wild ones,

Idaho “Candelight Vigil For Wolves” Photo Makes The LA Times!!!

“Candlelight Vigil for Wolves
Tuesday, Nov. 29, Action at 3101 S. Powerline Road Nampa, Idaho In front of the Fish and Game building. This will be a candle light vigil to mourn the loss of these wolves. Feel free to bring a sign if you so choose. Rain or shine. I’ll aim to be there from 4;45pm to 6pm.”

This  amazing picture, of a candlelight vigil held for wolves in Nampa, Idaho,  on November 29, 2011,  was posted in the LA Times yesterday,  highlighting  comments made about  J. William Gibson’s Thursday’s article, The New War On Wolves.

Thank you to the organizers for holding the candle light vigil in memory of the 260 fallen wolves killed in the hunts. The photo  is especially relevant today because  Montana FWP announced yesterday they were extending the wolf hunt through February 15, 2012. The hunt was  supposed to end December 31, 2011. Wolf advocates sent comments to  Montana FWP, asking them not to extend the hunts.  Apparently those pleas fell on deaf ears. This will make the holiday season a sad one for wolf advocates and a horror for wolves.

Idaho’s hunt already extends thru March 31, 2012 in most of the state but in the Lolo and Selway zones it runs all the way to June 2012, ten long months, right through wolf breeding, denning and pupping season. Is there no end to the cruelty?

Here’s the link to the Opinion page of the LA Times where the picture is posted.
