Save the Endangered Wolves

    2. Petition by

      Melinda Snyder

      Billings, MO

This was taken from a re-post on my Facebook page, and I think it's ridiculous! A better solution could be considered and put into action. As well as including the original post made by the Defenders of Wildlife, I've included a link to their video begging to repeal this decision. Please will you help us? Tell them open season is not acceptable! A better way can be established! These beautiful animals need to be protected!!

It's official: wolves in Wyoming are no longer protected under the Endangered Species Act. They will be hunted across the state, and "managed" to the smallest population possible. We cannot let this stand — we'll be taking this fight to the courts, and we encourage you to spread the word, and show the administration that this was a mistake. Are you with us? We need as many signatures a we can get, so please continue to ask for support

      These horrendous acts are being allowed all over the US..trapping, killing, hunting, it's preposterous. I for one want my children to be able to grow up in a world where wolves and all animals are still apart of natures beauty and not something that they have to read in a history book

      Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead says there won’t be a mass killing of wolves when hunting the predators is allowed to begin Oct. 1st.

      Wyoming's plan calls for wolves to be hunted in 90% of the state, at any time, for any reason...and in any way - no license required. So, do you believe Governor Mead??

      I get more and more angry about the situation the more I read about it. Because the government feels the numbers are "ok" now, that still doesn't give them the right to let them be openly hunted!

      Wolves are part of the natural cycle of nature. For example, without wolves, the rabbit population would skyrocket, leading to the spread of disease, and shortages of food for other animals. Wolves have no reason to act aggressively towards anything, unless it feels endangered. Just like us, wolves need to eat, so is it really fair to kill them when they are starving while we can eat whenever we want? They are intelligent, and focus on what's best for the entirety of the pack. They have family, siblings, relatives, they are no different than humans. It is cruel to kill them just cause we think "they're beasts" or "there's lots of them." Several wolf species are becoming endangered, and there is already a few extinct. The wolf is a symbol of nature, being loyal, sociable, showing leadership, knowledge, free will, freedom, fearlessness, and many more. They are a part of the world, and deserve to keep on living. SAVE THE WOLVES!
