Sign petition to have America's wolves placed under federal protection PERMANENTLY!

Recently congress voted to delist the gray wolves of the Northern Rocky Mountain region from the Endangered Species Act and turn 'wolf management' over to the states.  This decision was NOT based on science, but rather on the demand of special interest groups, and political agendas.  More recently,  Michigan congress woman, Candace Miller, proposed to delist ALL the wolves in America from federal protection and turn them over to the states.  

In the past state management has proved to be disasterous for wolves, driven to the brink of extinction!  This time promises to be no different as the states gear up with enthusiatic hunters and webpages anticipating arrowing wolves to death, luring them with scent and recorded callings, trapping them in steel traps and snare traps, poisoning, and shooting.    Many governors of these states are avid hunters and in the 'extreme' anti-wolf camp.  Some sites even advising how 'not to kill the wolf instantly, but to let him suffer longer' . THEIR words!

We simply cannot turn our wolves over to the states.  If ever science determines that the wolf is not an endangered species, these animals must continue to be managed by the federal government under a different category.  Wolves are an iconic keystone predator, keeping herds healthy and ecological systems balanced.

      They is not one reason for killing the wolf. They are not harming farm animals. Check out the other predators. A wolf does not leave a partial carcass. There is no reason on this earth (ask any biologist) to kill the wolf. This is the only way they can feel like men? To kill the wolf? How sad.How weak. They belong in the movie, Deliverance.

      Because wolves deserve the respect they can receive only under federal protection. The states of Idaho, Montana and Wyoming have been corrupted by ranchers and hunters, so throwing the fates of wolves to governors in those states sabotages every decent action that helped bring them back to the Northern Rockies.

      There is no reason whatsoever for the slaughter of these beautiful animals. They are not dangerous. There is something more going on here in this government...and it has a foul smell.

      The federal government has the responsibility to ensure the future of our natural resources and wildlife. Wolves are one of the most beautiful of our native wildlife. To turn wolf management over to a bunch of yahoo hunters is another example of the federal government shirking its responsibilities. The American people do not want individual states to be able to determine the future of our natural heritage! We do not want the wolves hunted and murdered for sport! It is time for the President and Congress to DO THE RIGHT THING for once!!

      I believe all creatures have a right to life; not just humans. I do not believe in "human supremacy".
