United States decision makers: Protect the gray wolves

This petition had 2,681 supporters

Wolves are amazing and beautiful creatures and the gray wolves don’t deserve to go extinct. Humans have already had a hand in wiping out plenty of animals already. If gray wolves are voted to be no-longer protected and taken off of the endangered species list, humans will be free to shoot them everywhere. They are having a hard enough time as it is surviving in the wild. It doesn't help people want to kill them already. Some people just want to be able to shoot them. Others are worried about their livestock and blame it on them if one cow dies, but gray wolves hardly attack livestock anyway. (Most of the time wild dogs kill them and the wolves just scavenge the bodies).Gray wolves are also a very important part of our ecosystem. They keep deer and elk populations in check, as well as keeping pest populations down which helps stop the spread of diseases.Gray wolves hardly ever attack people or pets. They may attack a dog if it wanders into the wolf’s territory in protection of them and their pups, but my parents would do the same for me. They don’t wander into towns to attack, though. When the endangered species act was put down as law, the wolves were on the verge of extinction. I don’t think it’s fair for us to be able to shoot them now.I think they should stay protected, and I hope you do too.
