Protect the Red Wolf

Fewer than 100 red wolves remain in the wild.

The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission recently approved a temporary state rule that allows spotlight hunting of coyotes at night throughout the state, including in the area inhabited by the only wild population of red wolves, one of the world’s most endangered animals.

Red wolves and coyotes look a lot alike, even in daylight. In nighttime conditions, it is nearly impossible to tell them apart. At least two wolves have already been illegally shot.

Please visit the Defenders of Wildlife website at  and tell the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission: Don’t let anymore wolves or coyotes die! Stop all coyote hunting -- daytime or nighttime -- at least within the red wolf recovery area!
