WOLVES CAUGHT IN THE CROSSFIRE, ONCE AGAIN

U.S. Congress has never before ousted an animal or plant from Endangered Species Act protections — until now. In August, a federal district court ruled to NOT delist Western gray wolves. The case is still open on appeal. Yet Congress ignored separation of powers (between judicial and legislative branches) by taking matters into their own hands. A rider attached to the recently passed spending bill delists wolves, thereby deleting their federal safety net.

This political maneuver is unconstitutional and leaves wolves in the crossfire of state-sponsored killing. Idaho already conducted a hunt by helicopter in which wolves are cornered and shot at point blank range. Last year, pups and mothers were gassed inside their dens.

      Killing wolves should be illegal. Wolves should be protected and put back on the protected species list before they become extinct in the wild

      “We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat the animals. Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it. Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace.”

      DEFORMED INHUMANE MONSTERS SHOULD LOCK SEPARATED AWAY FROM CIVILIZED CITIZENS FOR DON´T DISTURB THEIR FEELINGS IN AN INHUMANE WAY!

      MONSTER HUNTERS NEEDED

      IT IS TIME N O W TO DEMAND ALL BRUTALIZERS and KILLERS ONTO A LIST TO CONDEMN THEM TO EXTRA CHARGE FOR NGO´S working for FUTURE GENERATIONS!

      THESE KILLING- AND DESTROYING-HABITS ARE TO STOP – UNBEARABLY FOR CIVILIZED SOCIETIES.

      MONSTERS should not have the right to live together with human beings

      RESPONSIBLES DO NOT HAVE TO RIGHT TO BE CALLED “HUMAN” – THIS

      Wolves have been persecuted until their numbers declined so dangerously they were in danger of becoming extinct in the wild. It is ludicrous and arrogant of politicians to de-list wolves and have open season on them for the hunters and haters of this beautiful animal. It is unacceptable that wolves are the target, once again, for people who do not understand them or that they are part of our ecosystem. Wolves deserve to be left alone and allowed to live as nature intended. Stop the mass slaughter of wolves and educate people into a better understanding of them, start with educating politicians.
