The Obama administration is giving up on America's wolves. BUT WE ARE NOT!!!!





courtesy freewolf.info-graphistes~dot~ne

Folks?
We have petitioned for #KEEPWOLVESLISTED
We have emailed President Barack Obama.
We have emailed Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell.
We have emailed our state senators and representatives.
We have emailed Nancy Sutley ~ Chair on the Council of Environmental Council.

Looks like they all said take a hike to us.
Normally I would just say screw it, who needs them.
But I can't do that in this instance. 
If we think for a moment that we have another 10 years to wait and see if states like Idaho and Montana will "wake up and see the light" concerning their devastating approach to wolf predator "control"?
We are going to be reading the sadest news of all.
Our North American Gray Wolf population has been declared extinct under the Endangered Species Act.
We knew it, we saw it coming.
But we do not have to accept that nightmare.
Let's WAKE UP!!

Do you people love your wolves enough to get on a bus , in your car , on a plane, or on a train and rally for ONE day with your fellow wolf people?
Some of you do. I know I do. 
We have 90 days to plan this.
Here is Lisa's take on it:
It is time for another march on Washington, D.C. for our animals.

Let's do this folks!!!
Please.
I know we can, and we have wolf folks around the globe who would show up on their politicos lawn on that same day.

Aren't our wolves worth one freeking day of our lives?
Are any of us content with looking at beautiful wolf photos knowing all the while that this is their last stand?
I'm not.
I don't want their photo.
I want their lives to be spared.
From the idiot redneck Bubba wolfhater hunters that occupy my country.
I am sorry that my President and his administration did not hear us the FIRST TWO times in the last 8 years.
With your help, he won't have the option of making that 3 times.

Let's march on Washington, D.C.
#ForOurWolves

Let's do this folks, we have too much to lose now.
We have until August 2013, please help me to organize by suggesting a date in which you could make it. Thank you.

The Obama administration is giving up on America's wolves.

On Friday morning, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced its plans to strip Endangered Species Act protections for wolves across most of the lower 48 states.

This decision, if enacted, prematurely ends one of the most important wildlife recovery stories in America's history.

Wolves today occupy just 5 percent of their historic habitat in the continental United States. Apparently that 5 percent is enough for the Obama administration to declare victory and walk away.
Many of the nation's top wolf scientists disagree. They have criticized the wildlife agency for misrepresenting their research and failing to rely on the best scientific evidence on wolf recovery.

This proposal severely limits any chance wolves will ever return to hundreds of square miles of prime wolf habitat in places like the wilds of the Pacific Northwest, California, the southern Rocky Mountains or the Northeast. These are places far from people and with plentiful prey to support them - places where healthy populations of wolves can survive and thrive.

Decades ago the federal government made a commitment to save and recover wolves, recognizing the ecological importance of these top predators. We also recognized that we have a moral obligation to help these animals that, for decades, were the victim of ruthless government programs to drive them off the landscape.

Prematurely stripping federal protections for wolves across most of the lower 48 will certainly raise the risk that they'll be increasingly shot and trapped.

In the northern Rocky Mountains, more than 1,100 wolves have been killed since protections were removed in 2011 and this year populations declined by 7 percent.

There's no reason to expect this type of killing won't continue once nearly all wolves in the continental United States lose their protections.

And by letting that happen, we'll be foreclosing on the possibility that wolves can, at some point, return to many of their ancestral lands in mountains, forest, valleys and plains. Left alone to do their job, wolves sustain a critical natural balance in those places, whether it's keeping deer and coyote populations in check or keeping elk and other prey species on the move so they don't devour and trample streamsides that songbirds and beavers need to survive.

Wolves deserve a chance to return to the American landscape. They will never be as abundant as they once were across North America, and nobody expects that. But restoring them to just 5 percent of where they once lived, then calling it quits and hunting them down again by the thousands? That's just wrong.

  3. PLEASE DONT DELIST OUR WOLVES. THEY ARE BEING KILLED OUT OF GREED & HATE AND THAT IS RACISM. WHY KILL AN ANIMAL FOR HUNTING THE SAME THAT HUMANS CONSUME? ITS NOT A COMPETITION. A WOLF IS A WOLF AND WILL CLEAN UP THE SICK, INJURED OR OLD IN MOTHER NATURES WORLD. OUR WOLVES BELONG HERE. THEY KEEP MOTHER NATURE IN BALANCE. BAN TRAPPING, POISON, SNARING...HUNTING OF THE ANIMAL OF ANY KIND NEEDS TO STOP. PLEASE DO NOT DELIST THE WOLVES. THEY ARE MORE HUMANE THAN MOST HUMANS AND HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO BE HERE IN MY OPINION AS GOD MADE THEM BEFORE MAN"KIND". SO IN MY EYES, THE ANIMALS ARE MORE IMPORTANT TO GOD THAN MAN"KIND". JUST PLEASE STOP THE SLAUGHTERS OF OUR WOLVES AND ALL WILDLIFE.

    SAVE OUR WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Its very sad that in this day in age we are still trying to protect and save our wolves.Why does money and greed always come before a life? Or in this case, many lives that may not make a recovery. Just makes me so sick and ashamed to be a human. :-(
