Attack On Wolves and ESA Begins AGAIN….

Deja vu. Rep.Rehburg (R-Mt) recently introduced two wolf delisting bills. You thought those bills died with the 111th Congress? Think again. This is the 112th Congress and he’s after wolves again in Montana, Idaho and the rest of the country. There are two versions. One delists all gray wolves from the ESA and the other delists wolves in Montana and Idaho.

Better get your dialing fingers ready and your puter keyboards warmed up because wolf persecution is a full-time job with these people. They want to get their hands on wolves so they can manage/shoot/kill, them to please their elk hunting and ranching buddies.

They’re gearing up for their lost wolf hunting season and can’t waste another minute to strip gray wolves from the ESA.

Are we going to allow  this to  happen or are we going to raise our voices and let Congress know the majority of Americans support wolves? Are we going to allow special interests  to dictate policy based on political whim?

Get ready Wolf Warriors. It’s time to stand for gray wolves, one more time.

Please let these Representatives know how you feel about delisting wolves from the ESA.

=======

Please contact members of the sub-committee and speak out about tampering with the ESA to remove gray wolves’ protections. This is political expediency pure and simple. Science should trump politics concerning decisions related to endangered wildlife. That’s why the ESA was created to protect wildlife like the wolf, who are subjected to scapegoating and persecution. Don’t allow politicians to dismantle one of the most important pieces of environmental legislation ever  written. Stand up and speak out for wolves!
