Commission: Stop wolf hunting/trapping: WMU 310, 320, 390 (near Yellowstone)

    1. Petition by

      National Wolfwatcher Coalition, 501(c)(3)

We are deeply disturbed about Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks wolf hunting and trapping plan for the upcoming 2012-13 season. We will continue to demand that decision-makers use science to guide their policies and to urge restraint when enacting these policies as they relate to wolves throughout the Northern Rockies region.

For the past 5 years, the wolf population in the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem has stabilized at around 130. Trapping to kill 60% of wolves in the upcoming 2012-13 hunting and trapping season could threaten the greater Yellowstone population and possibly replicate the 2009 elimination of the Cottonwood Pack in 2010. We want a hunt and trap-free buffer zone enacted now to surround Yellowstone National Park to protect this modest population of wolves who are at serious risk.

      Because the wolves are necessary keystone predators of our environment...Please sign my "please stop killing us" petition at change.org re these wolves being wantonly slaughtered and read howling for justice website ..808 wolves dead since oct 1 2102 ...it is a betrayal of a beautiful animal and no one is stopping it ..I guess the people will have to say no to 2% of the population that insists it is their right to kill these animals because they prey on elk and deer and they feel man is the only predator allowed... REALLY?

      THE IS OUTRAGEOUS, IT BOILS DOWN TO HUNTERS WANTING TO KILL MORE.....THE WOLF IS MAGNIFICENT CREATURE, HUMANS...NOT SO MUCH. SOME CATTLE GET EATEN SO WE KILL OFF ALL THE WOLVES, REALLY!? THEY KILL THEIR MOTHERS AND LET THE BABIES STARVE, OR WORSE, LET THEIR DOGS MAUL THE BABIES TO DEATH WHILE THEY TAKE PICTURES OF IT AND POST IT...THIS IS EVIL. DO YOU THINK YOU'RE A CHRISTIAN?

      Our family travels to Yellowstone just to see the wolves and wildlife. We love to see the wolves in their natural state.
