More gruesome news out of Idaho: Sharpshooters in helicopters just gunned
down 23 wolves over the Clearwater National Forest.
If we're going to end this brutality, we need your help. Idaho wolves lost federal protections in 2011, and since then 954 wolves have been killed in the state by recreational hunters and trappers.
Act now to send a letter to the U.S. Forest Service, Idaho agency heads and elected officials to demand an end to this ruthless, wolf-killing campaign.

Earlier this year Idaho officials hired a gunman to mow down two entire
packs in the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness. Now it appears
they've taken to the skies, sending sharpshooters from the U.S. Department
of Agriculture's Wildlife Services.
Making matters worse, the Idaho legislature is poised to pass a bill that will allocate $2 million of taxpayer money to kill hundreds of wolves and drive the state wolf population down to only 150 animals.
Once driven to the brink of extinction in the lower 48 states, wolves in recent years have made a remarkable comeback. But their recovery will be tragically undercut if state and federal officials continue to insist on barbaric management that relies on hired killers and gunners in helicopters.
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
