INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

A plan unveiled last week by the State of Wyoming and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) would allow wolves across most of the state to be shot on sight, without a permit and without limit. No protections for pregnant or nursing wolves, no protections for pups. Just a license to kill wolves across most of the state.

This inferior plan is by all accounts identical to those previously proposed by Wyoming which were--until now--found to be insufficient by the USFWS.

Tell Secretary of Interior Salazar that this unscientific shoot-on-sight "management" plan is unacceptable and ask that he use his power to force Wyoming to come up with a responsible, science-based management plan.
