2,673 DEAD GRAY WOLVES
January 25. 2014
Here is the breakdown for the number of Gray Wolves that have paid with their lives for this seriously flawed decision to remove ESA protection status from the Rocky Mountain and Midwestern states of the U.S.A.
Idaho, Montana, Wyoming
( Rocky Mountains USA )
Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin
( mid Western USA )
The number of wolf fatalities are starting from the date they were delisted in that state.
The final numbers will be updated on the official end date of wolf hunt season, as they become available.
Some states have gone over their quota already.
The USFWS has proposed further removal of protections in the remaining Lower 42 states.
Over a million "pro wolves" commented that they did not approve of delisting, that our Gray Wolves have not made a full recovery and are constantly under siege by the state Wildlife Services here that allow state managed wolf hunting seasons.
