Keep Wolves Listed as Endangered Species

Lawmakers are calling for the wolf to be removed from the Endangered Species List in all states. Unregulated hunting nearly led to their extinction until the Endangered Species Act was introduced in 1973, and the wolf had to be re-introduced because there were no remaining grey wolves in the West. And re-introduced the were, because it was recognized they were a keystone species, critical to healthy ecosystems.

Wolves have NOT made a full recovery, nor can they as humans have set them on a sure path to extinction as governors from Idaho, Wyoming and Montana seek to push the federal government to get the wolf off of the endangered species list in the special interest of hunters.

Their natural habitat is dwindling though human land use which includes ranchers and cattle grazing, real estate developers, logging, mining and oil drilling. Their natural food source has been disrupted through poisioning and hunting of their natural prey. Not even mentioning what the BLM has done to decimate the wild horse population (another food source for the wolf).

We ask President Barack Obama to veto any bill that comes before him to remove protections from wolves in the lower 48 states and have them removed from the Endangered Species List.

They have less land and less prey than ever before making them more endangered now than ever before. We ask that you do not remove the wolf as an endangered species and allow them to be killed for the thrill of hunters. If anything, relocate them where land and prey food are plentiful, far away from cattle ranchers, real estate developers, loggers, oil and mining companies.
