IDAHO'S GOVERNOR IS CONSIDERING WHETHER TO SIGN A BILL THAT WOULD KILL OVER 1300 WOLVES IN IDAHO. This will be one of the largest  & most brutal WILDLIFE MASSACRES IN 200 YEARS! ThIS bill would pay for the hiring of private contractors to kill up to 90% of the state's WOLVES.

There is no Science data to back up this slaughter. With over 2,500,000 CATTLE/LIVESTOCK IN IDAHO AND LESS THAN 1% PREDATION (ABOUT 150 A YEAR) predation is not an issue. There's also no Effect on elk hunting as numbers  are well above normal levels.

SENATE BILL 1211 WAS RUSHED THROUGH THE LEGISLATURE IN LESS THAN A WEEK. IT'S AIM IS TO REDUCE THE POPULATION OF WOLVES JUST ABOVE THE ENDANGERED SPECIES CLASSIFICATION. THIS BILL TURNS WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT BACK INTO THE DARK AGES AND IT WAS POLICIES LIKE THAT THAT GOT WOLVES LINKS GRIZZLIES ETC. INTO THE HAND OF FEDERAL GOVERNMENT FOR PROTECTION

 

WOLVES ARE BEING SEEN AS VERMIN TO BE EXTERMINATED WITHOUT RECOGNIZING THE IMPORTANCE OF THE ROLE IN THE ECOSYSTEM & THE CASCADE AFFECT THIS MAY HAVE ON OTHER SPECIES.

OVER 76% OF IDAHO RESIDENTS BELIEVE WILDLIFE BELONGS TO ALL CITIZENS AND THAT MANAGEMENT DECISIONS SHOULD BE MADE WITHOUT POLITICAL INFLUENCE BY THE IDAHO FISH AND GAME COMMISSION WHOSE MEMBERS OPPOSE THIS BILL 5 TO 2

PLEASE TELL GOVERNOR LITTLE TO VETO BILL SB 1211. ALSO MENTION THAT YOU WILL NOT SUPPORT TOURISM OR AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS FROM IDAHO IF THIS BILL PASSES.
