Stop the Forest Service From Killing More Prairie Dogs!

Sign this petition!

Not only prairie dogs are threatened - burrowing owls, foxes, and critically endangered black ferrets are at risk too.

The Forest Service wants to make it easier to poison and kill prairie dogs on the American plains -- risking creatures like burrowing owls, hawks, swift fox and the critically endangered black-footed ferret.

Prairie dogs play an essential role in the plains ecosystem. Already there may be too few prairie dogs in the National Grasslands to sustain local populations of some of the animals that depend on them, including burrowing owls, swift fox, and the endangered black-footed ferret.

Wildlife management should be based on science, not on politics. The ability to poison is limited by the current Nebraska National Forest Management Plan to avoid the temptation for managers to cave into pressure from grazing lessees and politicians seeking private gain from public lands at the expense of wildlife. Do not remove this safety net by amending the plan to allow poisoning anywhere on the Grasslands!

What can YOU do?

Sign this petition to stop the Forest Service from poisoning and killing tens of thousands of these furry critters: http://go.care2.com/e/PgFZ/AEio/dJNU 

Forward this to others and encourage everyone to sign the petition!

Thanks for making a difference today,

P.S. Last year alone after a similar rule change, nearly 70,000 prairie dogs were killed on National Grasslands bordering private land. Please don't let even more prairie dogs die. Sign this petition.
