Tell the EPA: Ban the Poisons that Kill Wolves

After traveling more than 1,000 miles from her Montana home, a female wolf from the Mill Creek pack met a horrific fate in Colorado -- she was poisoned by the deadly Compound 1080.

Plagued with convulsions, dizziness and unbearable pain, her journey ended in a terrible death on a lonely Colorado road. But sadly, she is not alone.

Wildlife Services, a program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, uses Compound 1080 to kill thousands of coyotes and other predators every year.

Compound 1080 is one of the most lethal toxins known to humankind and it often doesn't even reach its intended target, killing imperiled wildlife -- and even domestic dogs -- instead. 

The Environmental Protection Agency is deciding whether to allow the continued use of these deadly chemicals to kill wildlife, and they need to hear from you.

Take action now -- urge the EPA to ban the use of Compound 1080 and sodium cyanide to prevent the continued poisoning of wildlife.
