Wolves are targeted again

The Bush/Cheney Administration in conjunction with the State of Wyoming has launched another attack on wolves in Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies — re-packaging a proposal that could lead to the killing of as many as 1,000 of American wolves.

Take action now. Tell the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that our wolves deserve a lasting future in Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies.

Following several bloody months of wolf killing in Wyoming, Idaho and Montana, a federal court ruled earlier this year against an earlier version of the Administration’s proposal to remove Endangered Species Act protections for the region’s wolves. In response, the Bush/Cheney Administration actually withdrew that proposal just a few weeks ago.

But with the clock winding down on the Bush/Administration, federal officials are launching a last-ditch attempt to re-package and ram through a plan that could lead to the slaughter of as many as two-thirds of the Greater Yellowstone and Northern Rockies wolf population.

Don’t let them get away with it. Urge federal officials to come up with a responsible management plan that ensures a lasting future for these majestic animals.

Time and time again, Defenders of Wildlife has gone to court and in Congress to ensure responsible, balanced management of our wolves.

For the past two years, caring people like you have sent tens of thousands of messages, made thousands of calls to fight the Bush/Cheney Administration and their allies in court to save the wollves.

Help us safeguard wolves. Take action now. Public comments accepted until November 28, 2008.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is only accepting public comments until November 28th,

so please take action now.

** We need to mobilize conservation activists to show up at public meetings and speak out. And we have to prepare for what could be another long, difficult legal fight ahead. To meet these goals in such a short time and protect wolves in Greater Yellowstone and the Northern Rockies, we’re going to need your help.
