WOLVES CAUGHT IN THE CROSSFIRE, ONCE AGAIN

U.S. Congress has never before ousted an animal or plant from Endangered Species Act protections — until now. In August, a federal district court ruled to NOT delist Western gray wolves. The case is still open on appeal. Yet Congress ignored separation of powers (between judicial and legislative branches) by taking matters into their own hands. A rider attached to the recently passed spending bill delists wolves, thereby deleting their federal safety net.

This political maneuver is unconstitutional and leaves wolves in the crossfire of state-sponsored killing. Idaho already conducted a hunt by helicopter in which wolves are cornered and shot at point blank range. Last year, pups and mothers were gassed inside their dens.

      Wolves and humans are two of the same. How can it not be seen that both of wolves and people care for their families, from the top of the predator list? These animals are supposed to be our companions, not our Turkey Shoot.

      There is no justification for this cruelty! Government has to get involved to stop this extermination. will you not be happy until it's just human versus human? Wildlife exists for a reason, is needed and should be protected! Not slaughtered!!

      As soon as we start treating violent actions & behavior for what it is, criminal, we just might increase the population of decent human beings. In reality I think I'd have better luck praying that these pussies accidentally blow their own heads off! That'd work for me too!!! ;)
