Protect Endangered Red Wolves

    1. Sponsored by

      Defenders of Wildlife

Fewer than 100 wild red wolves remain in the wild and all of them live in North Carolina. However, the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission recently approved a temporary state rule that allows spotlight hunting of coyotes at night throughout the state, including in the area inhabited by the only wild population of red wolves, one of the world’s most endangered animals.

Red wolves and coyotes look a lot alike, even in daylight. In nighttime conditions, it is nearly impossible to tell them apart. At least two wolves have already been illegally shot.

Tell the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission: Don’t let anymore wolves die! Stop all coyote hunting -- daytime or nighttime -- within the red wolf recovery area!

      I am a huge animal lover, and it would kill me to see such a beautiful, noble animal go extinct.
