These new proposed provisions of S. 659 presents one of the worst piece of anti-wildlife legislation that would endanger the lives of bears, wolves and other iconic wildlife. We need to act quickly in opposing this new bill and its provisions that threatens gray wolves in Wyoming and the Great Lakes Region from the Endangered Species Act along with opening the way for killing of many of these animals throughout wildlife refuges throughout Alaska.
