Help Stop the Wolf Carnage in Idaho

This petition had 28,249 supporters

It’s no secret that Idaho has declared war on its wolf population. But few people realize just how far Idaho has gone in its effort to dramatically reduce that population.

Idaho has contracted with Wildlife Services to help kill wolves in order to boost Idaho’s elk population for sport hunters. They will no longer be able to excuse their wolf killing as protecting livestock – Wildlife Services will be killing wolves for trying to live off of their natural prey.

They often are indiscriminant in the wolves they kill. Just last week, Wildlife Service’s shooters under contract with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife mistakenly killed the alpha female of the Huckleberry pack in Washington State, throwing that pack’s future into jeopardy. 

Please take immediate action and tell the Secretary of Agriculture to order Wildlife Services to stand down in Idaho!
