Priscilla Feral Speaks Out For Wolves On CNN!!

Priscilla Feral, President, Friends of Animals appeared on Issues With Jane-Velez Mitchell, Friday, August 12th. For once we heard the truth spoken on national television about the absolutely atrocious situation wolves are facing in the Northern Rockies.

Unless the US Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals grants an Emergency Stay to stop the hunts, wolves will face the tortures of the damned, starting August 30, 2011 when the Idaho hunts begin.

Priscilla slams the Obama administration for appointing a rancher to head the Interior. She speaks about the upcoming hunts in Idaho and Montana AND the awful  unregulated killing of wolves proposed by Wyoming. If Wyoming has their way haters could kill wolves in the most horrendous ways.

Friends of Animals is calling for a boycott of all the wolf states.  Economic boycotts are one of the ways we can push back against this brutality. All three states are  dependent on tourism and losing tourist dollars could make a difference.

The nightmare started with Obama’s appointment of Ken Salazar to head the  Interior. Obama has the distinction of being the only President to delist wolves twice and he hasn’t even served a full term. With the Presidents blessing  Western politicians were able to insert a wolf delisting rider into a must-pass budget bill, which stripped  gray wolves of their ESA protections. This never would have passed as a stand alone bill, the only way the anti-wolf lobby could accomplish the dirty deed was by sneaking into an appropriations bill, without the knowledge of most Americans. Every Democrat Senator voted yes, except three, even though many of them professed to support the ESA and wolves.  Senators like Boxer, Feinstein, Kerry, the Udall’s all voted to delist the gray wolf.   We can’t blame the Republicans this time. Our Democrat President signed the budget bill into law with the wolf delisting rider intact. Now wolves are facing extirpation AGAIN,  if the wolf states have their way.  And why is the USFWS going along with Wyoming’s “shoot-on-sight” policy, when they fought it in court before? It is vile and will damage Wyoming’s reputation. Who will want to visit a state where the iconic wolf is treated with such brutality?

If we don’t speak out now, if we don’t protest these terrible policies, wolves could disappear once again from the Western US.

HOWL ACROSS AMERICA

WOLF RALLY TODAY, WASHINGTON, DC

Wolf Warriors please join Friends of Animals today, Friday, August 12th, in Washington, DC, To Rally For Wolves and Protest the Upcoming Wolf Hunts.

Where:Gather at the Capitol Reflecting Pool at 9.00 a.m. (First Street and East Capitol). Then march to the White House before convening at Lafayette Park (1600 Pennsylvania Avenue—directly across from the White House).

This is the time. Stand for wolves. Be a voice for the voiceless. Remember what wolves are facing in Idaho, starting August 30, 2011, eighteen days from now.

Idaho Wolf Hunt

N0 quotas in most of state.  Hunters can kill 2 wolves per calendar year and since the wolf hunt in Idaho extends through March 31, 2012, hunters can apply for 2 more tags in 2012, allowing them to kill up to 4 wolves. Trappers can kill 5 wolves in 2011 and apply for more tags at the beginning of 2012. That would mean trappers could kill up to 10 wolves during this upcoming hunt.

Traps do not have to be checked for up to 72 hours, wolves could suffer for three days in a trap before being killed. Think how long three days is without food or water, with your pack-mates surrounding you, unable to help.

Remember the pups are just four to five months old. They are unable to care for themselves without the pack. Idaho has approximately 1000 wolves, 1/3 are pups. They could be killed outright or left to starve if their parents are killed.

Idaho wants to reduce its wolf population from 1000 wolves to 150. That means 850 wolves could be slaughtered in this hunt.  Mothers, fathers, babies, sisters, brothers…all gone.

Hunters can use traps (leghold), snares, archery, high-powered rifles, the horror of it goes on and on. If the hunters and trappers don’t get the job done Idaho fish and game has stated they will use Wildlife Services, with their helicopter gunships and traps.

Make no mistake, this will be a bloodbath.

Wyoming

Wyoming wants unregulated killing of wolves in most of the state. That means if Wyoming has its way wolves can be  killed every day of the year.   It will be open season on them to be killed in any way possible, even running over them with a snowmobile.  Wyoming has approx. 300 plus wolves. Yellowstone wolves regularly cross over the park boundaries.  If that happens, they are in danger of losing their lives, just like the Cottonwood Pack back in 2009.

Montana

Montana has approx. 520 wolves. Hunters can kill 220 wolves with archery and high-powered rifles. Meanwhile Wildlife Services continues to kill wolves in Montana. The wolves will be dodging bullets from the hunts and WS.

BE THERE TO STAND FOR WOLVES IN THEIR DARK HOUR!!!

Extirpation All Over Again?
