Help Stop the Federal Wolf Killing Plan


The federal Wildlife Services agency (a branch of the U.S. Department of Agriculture) is the primary wolf-killer in the United States -- and now wants to expand their wolf-killing operations… even in the face of a court ruling restoring protections to these iconic animals.

Wildlife Services plans to work with Idaho officials to eliminate up to 80 percent of the wolves in central Idaho by land and from the air. Their plan also includes killing entire packs -- including gassing helpless wolf pups in their dens -- and surgically sterilizing alpha wolf pairs.

Help stop the killing. Urge President Obama’s Secretary of the Department of Agriculture to nix the planned wolf slaughter and rein in Wildlife Services.
