These wolves are beautiful, intelligent creatures that should not be exterminated. They are sacred to many people, tribes and customs. Not only is the revocation of protection unwarranted but the methods in which they would kill the animals is a brutal, cruel and inhumane eradication that could have extremely negative effects on the environment. The animals have been and should always be protected by this government under the Endangered Species Act. They are part of our national heritage and feel no less than our pet dogs that we cherish so much.
