Congress for the first time in history has moved to remove an animal from the endangered species list for no scientific reason . This has been done by amending the Endangered Species Act The law was changed because the courts had ruled that Grey wolves should be protected. Congress has bowed to the hunting lobby and changed the law to circumvent the courts. The move has been condemned by one judge as a "disrespect for the rule of law " but is powerless to stop it. Three States in the Northern Rockies: Wyoming ,Idaho and Montana can now decimate as much as 90% of their existing wolf populations.In Idaho a population of 1000 will be hunted to no more than 150. The wolves were originally brought into the area in the mid 90's by the US Government because of fears for their extinction . Supporters of the de listing have claimed that wolves are decimating livestock.However in Wyoming last year, the maximum number of animal deaths that could possibly be attributed to wolf attacks, were 23 animals. This is out of a population of 1.3 million! Hunting will commence by the fall of next year .Please show congress there is world wide interest in this outrage
Thank you for all your kind support. This petition has been sent to Mr Salazar head of the Department of the Interior and Mr Ashe of the US fish and wildlife service. I has also been sent to the congress men for Idaho Wyoming and Montana.
This and petitions like it will show that home and abroad this measure is opposed and is damaging the image of the US as a leader in conservation.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
