Alert from the Center for Biological Diversity
Breaking news: The anti-wolf zealots are losing ground.
After weeks of intense pressure from the Center for Biological Diversity and other groups, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service just admitted to excluding key wolf experts from the scientific analysis of its infamous, nationwide wolf-delisting plan. The Service has dissolved its hand-picked panel and turned over the entire review process to an independent research institute. Now the nation’s top wolf scientists –once improperly disqualified for questioning the Service’s proposal to delist wolves — will be reconsidered as candidates for the review panel.
This is a victory in our fight to keep federal protections for gray wolves — but another battle is raging in the northern Rockies and Great Lakes. The wolf-killing season is starting, and hunters and trappers are lining up by the thousands.
In case you missed my last email, the Center urgently needs 6,000 wolf heroes to counter 6,000 wolf killers in Montana. Will you help now by giving to our Wolf Defense Fund and become a hero for these beleaguered animals?
In Montana 6,000 people just paid $19 to kill a wolf. Selling cheap $19 wolf tags to 6,000 people is an atrocity, because Montana only has 625 wolves left after last year’s killing season. Not satisfied with the massacre, the state has lined up 10 times as many rifles as there are wolves to finish the job.
I’m writing today because the Center for Biological Diversity needs help balancing the odds. We need 6,000 wolf heroes to donate to our Wolf Defense Fund to ensure that federal protections are not stripped from all wolves across the country.
By donating, you’ll help stop the killing and send Montana a powerful message that a wolf’s life is worth far more than $19.
We can’t let these extermination practices spread nationwide. Wolf haters are putting up money to wipe out wolves. Wolf supporters need to do the same if we’re going to stop the killing.
