Save Wolves from Aerial Slaughter and Poisonous Gas

    1. Petition by


USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack's Wildlife Services Agency, in coordination with the state of Idaho, intends to kill up to 80 percent of the wolves in the central part of the state. The plan they've put forward would decimate entire packs of wolves, gunning them down from helicopters and killing defenseless wolf pups in their dens through the use of poisonous gas.

Ask USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack to intervene to stop this outrageous proposal.
