Urge Federal Officials to Save Wyoming Wolves

    1. Sponsored by

      Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund

Federal officials have formally announced plans to eliminate vital protections for wolves in Wyoming, leaving these iconic animals at the mercy of a shoot-on-sight state policy that covers nearly 90% of the state.

The proposal could lead to indiscriminate wolf killing across the vast majority of Wyoming—even on national forests and other lands owned by the American taxpayer.

Help save these wolves. Tell U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe that you OPPOSE the premature delisting of wolves in Wyoming.

      This is ridiculous. Tax dollars were used in order to reinstate the grey wolf to protect the environment and help manage the overpopulation of elk. Are we just going to slaughter all animals so we don't have to deal with them? This will get out of control, the wolves will be completely decimated, and all the money used to help reinstate a balanced ecosystem of wildlife in Wyoming will be annihilated.

      They are part of our eco system as is with all wild animals...... IF this bill is passed, then the Grizzly Bears, Mountain Lyons, Coyotes, the Polar Bears and all wildlife will follow. It's already bled over into the domestic realms by killing certain breeds of dogs. Let'g get real; they were here BEFORE we were. We've impeded into their habitat. It isn't right.

      Nature needs Balance, with Human Greed & Ignorance throwing it off! Wolfs are a wild, beautiful & majestic alpha animal! Usually only if injured or sick: would ever attack a person & if enough to hunt in wild, will leave livestock alone!

      The wolf is a beautiful and powerful creature and without them the Eco-system will be out of balance and it is not fair to shoot on sight when this state policy covers around 90% of the state which leaves them with hardly anywhere to hunt which in-turn leads them to hunt the cattle that the state is trying to protect so please save the majestic wolf from dying out.

      Wyoming's Gov. stated he wants to be the first to shoot one. Wolves are not safe in Wyoming without federal protections. Wolves are far from "recovered" in the U.S.
