 26 Days to Save our Wolves
February 28. 2014

Friday, February 28. 2014
I figured that since all I seem to do lately is pester you Wolves to leave a comment, I'd better do as I say, or as my Wolf Sister and friend, Robin says:

"Walk the talk".

So I'll share mine. 
Every day, one new comment to USFWS. 
Tomorrow there will also be new talking points for you to use, so you can leave your intelligent comments. Thank you for taking the time to speak up for the future of our Gray Wolves and Mexican Gray Wolves.

February 28. 2014
Hello folks at USFWS.
You know, it seems that we are really wasting valuable time pondering this decision to delist or not to delist our Gray Wolves as endangered species status from the E.S.A.

I'm really astounded that there is yet another delay, given that in the time since it was leaked to the press,that you were even going to consider such a misguided move, we have witnessed over a thousand wolves perish at the hands of hunters, trappers, and FWS employees.

This occurred in the 6 states of Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Minnesota, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

So, imagine how many wolves we will bid farewell to IF you were to decide to delist Gray Wolves in all 48 states of the USA?

I don't think our wolves have a snowball's chance in Hell of surviving your time in office given your track record of mismanagement of policy and methodologies of compiling "sound science" to determine the future of Gray Wolves.

You are advocating a total destruction of wolf recovery with this plan.

Why did we bother bringing wolves back into this country, and nurturing their recovery from the ground floor up to now see wolf recovery being, in essence, a "wolf hunt free for all" for hunting outfitters?

KEEP Gray Wolves listed as an endangered species because that is WHAT THEY ARE!!!
And please, for the sake of simple human decency?
RE-LIST the unfortunate wolves in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Minnesota, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

Thank you.
Speak with you again tomorrow.


We have until March 27 . 2014 to leave a comment regarding your thoughts about the seriously bungled Gray Wolf and Mexican Gray Wolf delisting proposal initiated by
the USFWS.
Tell them they buggered it up. Big time.

Here's the comment form.!submitComment;D=FWS-HQ-ES-2013-0073-43030

Here are some talking points you can use, swipe, send.

Here's all of the news about what USFWS did ( and 4 petitions to sign from our wonderful advocate friends at Defenders of Wildlife, Center for Biological Diversity, and Wildearth Guardians )

In a nutshell? The USFWS cut corners, and used a little creative "in house consulting" utilizing scientific research that was highly dubious. They were legally obligated to rely on independent, non biased review. Appears that they stacked the deck in their favor, as they just do not want to work at keeping wolves as a protected species under the E.S.A.
So, they want to wash their hands of protecting wolves as endangered species. No big secret there.
We can't allow that.
You've seen what ID, MT, WY, MI, MN, and WI state wildlife services have done when USFWS said "Go for it folks, YOU manage your wolves".
2,673 Gray Wolves were "managed". To death.

We need to keep the rest of the Gray Wolves in the USA protected.
THEN we are going to find a way to convince those six states to quit managing the wolves there into oblivion, heading toward yet another apex predator extinction in the lower 48 States.

Please comment and sign those org petitions.
This is SO important, can't stress that enough.
Thank you.
