This petition had 3,033 supporters

"New data reveals this secretive program killed more than 2.7 million animals during fiscal year 2014. Despite increasing calls for reform, the program last year wiped out 322 gray wolves; 61,702 coyotes; 580 black bears; 305 mountain lions; 796 bobcats; 22,496 beavers and nearly 3,000 foxes.

Stop spending federal dollars to:

- Hire aerial snipers to kill wildlife

- Buy exploding poison caps and cruel traps.

The Center for Biological Diversity is pushing for a sweeping reform of this rogue program, which is also under investigation by the Agriculture Department's inspector general." - Center for Biological Diversity

Humans are causing more and more harm to animals - whether we are competing them for resources through deforestation, habitat loss, food supplies dwindling or out right through hunting.

We don't need our tax money going toward killing natural predators and making this problem worse.
