Urgent! save Idaho wolves
Idaho's governor Brad lLttle is considering whether to sign a bill that would kill over 1300 wolves in Idaho. This will be one of the largest and most brutal wildlife massacres in 200 years! Sign PetitionSign Petition
This Bill would pay for the hiring of private contractors to kill up to 90% of the state's wolves. There is no science to back up the slaughter. With over 2,500,000 cattle in Idaho and less than 1% predation (about 150 a year) predation is not an issue. There's also no effect on elk hunting as the numbers are well above normal levels.
Senate Bill 1211 was rushed through the legislature in less than a week. It's aim is to reduce the population of wolves just above endangered species classification. This bill turns wildlife management back into the dark ages and it was policies like that that got wolves, lynx, grizzlies etc. into the hand of federal government for protection.
Wolves are being seen as vermin to be exterminated without recognizing the importance of their role in the ecosystem and the effect this may have another species.
Over 76% of Idaho residents believe wildlife belongs to all citizens and that management decisions should be made without political influence. Indeed Idaho fish and game commission opposes this bill 5 to 2.
Please tell Governor Brad little to veto Bill SB1211 and also please mention that you will not support tourism or agricultural products from Idaho if this bill passes.
