Defenders of Wildlife & NRDC: Stop the Latest Assault on Our Wolves

July 12th, 2007 9:00 pm by Kelly Garbato

Two new alerts on proposals that would negatively impact endangered wolf populations in Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies.

First, from Defenders of Wildlife:

Stop the Latest Assault on Our Wolves

The Bush/Cheney Administration has announced two proposals to jumpstart the killing of hundreds of wolves in the Yellowstone area and elsewhere in the Northern Rockies.

Officials in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are now seeking public comment on the agency’s proposal to accept Wyoming’s disastrous wolf management plan and to give Idaho and Wyoming vast new powers to kill wolves — even while these magnificent animals remain listed under the Endangered Species Act.

The deadline for comments on these two flawed proposals is Monday, August 6th. Please fill out the form [here] to send your message to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service right now.

And the Natural Resources Defense Council:

Tell the Bush Administration It Has No License to Kill Wolves!

We must stop the Bush Administration’s plan to declare open season on the wolves of Greater Yellowstone and central Idaho. Once approved, Wyoming and Idaho intend to begin exterminating up to half their gray wolves — by aerial gunning and other cruel methods — as early as this fall.

Submit your Official Citizen Comment, opposing this disastrous plan, before August 6.
