Take action by Wednesday, September 24 2008!
Target: U.S. Forest Service
The Bush administration is planning a massive poisoning operation that would target prairie dogs across three National Grasslands in South Dakota and Nebraska.
Prairie dogs are routinely poisoned, shot and bulldozed on both private and public lands, often at taxpayer expense. Adding exotic disease to the widespread colony destruction, it is no wonder the population of this vital species is now at one or two percent of its historic level on these grasslands.
This poisoning plan not only threatens a diminished prairie dog population; it puts other wildlife at risk. Species such as hawks, eagles, foxes, coyotes and black-footed ferrets rely on prairie dog colonies for food, shelter and habitat for survival.
Recent poisoning programs have already destroyed thousands of acres of prime wildlife habitat. This new plan will bring needless destruction to our grasslands and wildlife.
We only have a few precious weeks to appeal this latest plan to mass-poison prairie dogs — please sign the petition today!
