Wolves Lose ESA Protections -
Express Outrage at Plans To Kill Them

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has released its proposal to strip wolves of crucial Endangered Species Act protections in Idaho and parts of Wyoming. Both states are now preparing massive wolf eradication plans, with the intent of killing hundreds of wolves.

In Idaho alone, the governor plans to kill all but 100 of the wolves in the state. And now, the price to kill a wolf is cheaper than a large pizza: Idaho residents pay $9.75 to kill a wolf. (It costs more if you're from out-of-state.)

"I'm prepared to...shoot a wolf myself," declared Idaho's governor preparing for the de-listing of wolves from the ESA. Listen to his speech before a crowd of anti-wolf protesters.

Tell Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne that you’re outraged by his department’s decision to eliminate protections for wolves in states that are now preparing widespread wolf eradication.

Shooting a mother wolf with pups in Idaho could soon be cheaper than ordering a large pizza.

I know you’ve heard about Idaho’s wolves before, but as you might have gathered, things have gotten worse.

Even as Idaho’s wolf families enjoy their last days of Endangered Species Act protection before the state initiates plans to kill as many as 54 packs, anti-wolf forces have already negotiated a lower price to kill them.

The cost to kill a single wolf would likely be just $9.75 for Idaho residents. Originally, the state Department of Fish and Game planned to charge $26.50 for state residents to hunt wolves, and $256 for out-of-state hunters.

Send a message of outrage to the Secretary of the Interior. 

The panel that oversees the Department of Fish and Game abandoned the higher prices after potential hunters voiced concern about paying more to gun down one of these furry canines.

Family animals, or any species for that matter, should not be de-listed from federal protections only to be annihilated. Voice your outrage to the U.S. Secretary of the Interior now!
