Gov to kickoff wolf-shooting frenzy

Post by Aleu » Wed Jan 17, 2007 9:15 pm

Hi Aleu,

"I'm prepared to bid for that first ticket to shoot a wolf myself."

If the words of Idaho's Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter don't send a chill down your spine, they should. Idaho's governor said just last week that he will support public hunts to kill all but 10 of the state's 65 gray wolf packs after the federal government strips them of protection under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) - a proposal believed to be released later this month if citizens don't act to prevent it. Sign this petition to preserve the wolves' ESA protections.

Otter told The Associated Press that he wants hunters to kill about 550 gray wolves. That would leave about 100 wolves, or the bare minimum number of wolves, alive in the state before they could be considered endangered again.

I've sent many of you a note about this terrible plan already, but our records indicate that you haven't sent in a letter of protest. With such cold-blooded anti-wolf sentiments in the air, your help is needed more than ever.

Any day now, the federal officials could sanction the worst wolf massacre in the lower 48 states in decades. Please help save the wolves by sending a letter of protest to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Here's what's about to happen: this month, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is expected to propose stripping wolves of crucial Endangered Species Act protections across most of Wyoming and de-listing wolves in Idaho. Idaho is poised to kill up to 75% of the wolves living in the Lolo district of the Clearwater National Forest.

This proposal could allow the use of aerial gunning and other lethal control methods to kill as many as two-thirds of the wolves in Wyoming and as many as 54 of Idaho's 65 wolf packs!
Don't let them de-list the wolves: http://go.care2.com/e/R4Kh/dDpf/P7L0

As crazy as it seems, many misinformed citizens motivated by over-blown claims of livestock loss and elk hunting declines are urging federal officials to kill wolves. The wolves need you to speak up now! Help us make sure the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service hears from thousands of people like you and me who want to protect the wolves and their families.

Send your message now, and urge Fish and Wildlife Service chief Dale Hall to protect wolves in the Northern Rockies.

Thanks for helping today,

Hilary Stamper
Care2 and ThePetitionSite.com

P.S. Don't forget - this deadly proposal could be released any day. Please sign the petition now!

I've calmed down now. Kill frenzy shutdown. I heard it in a kid's newspaper called First News.

What's funny is that a species has to be endangered to get any protections at all (where removal from ESA is supposed to be some sort of victory, where it is instead used as declaring an 'open season' on that type of animal.

In WI, it's perfectly normal for DNR (Dept of Natural Resources) to announce how many deer they need hunted in a given year. This is to keep the deer population under control. The number of deer being struck by automobiles is indeed somewhat proportional to the size of the herds.

These do sometimes result in fatalities in humans (as well as the deer), so that is usually done.

I would find it more acceptable if Idaho were to pick a number (such as 500 for instance) and maintain the state's wolf population at that level. Maintaining the wolf population at 100 is ludicrous (since rarity invites poachers), then the governor is stuck with the wolves are covered under the ESA again.

I know it's barbaric, but we used to have a family of black bears living on our property (the first clue we had to their presence was our tent being crushed - at least we weren't in it). I saw the mother and two cubs and stayed well away. As far as I know, the bears were still there after the property was sold. (which wasn't by my choice)
