426 wolves have been wiped out since the beginning of 2014. Pups, alphas, whole packs, gone. The majority have been slaughtered in the ongoing  Idaho, Montana, Minnesota and Wisconsin wolf hunts. 17 wolves were killed in Wyoming’s “predator zone” before a federal judge recently relisted them. 3 wolves were killed in Washington state, even though they’re “protected” there. The Huckleberry Pack alpha female was shot by a WDFW sharpshooter from the air, the alpha female of the Teanaway Pack and a female wolf from the Smackout Pack, were both poached.  And I’m not even counting wolves killed by Wildlife Services this year or wolves killed in the 2014 part of the 2013/2014 hunts. That would push the total much higher.

The saddest part of all this are the hunts are far from over. Wildlife Services killings are not over.

This has to stop, we are traveling down that…

  1. Wolves are the natural, most agreeable way to control Wild Boar, Ungulate and Rodent populations, that destroy crop and flora, as well as spread disease everywhere.! Wolves have been proven to primarily kill sick and old in herds, increase the herd health, prevent them from over-grazing and overpopulating (proven in Yellowstone Park), as well as rodents that can spread diseases. Consider, foxes, coyotes, wolves consume a lot of rodents: mice, rats, prairie dogs, rabbits. Unchecked rodent populations destroy crops and can spread disease outbreaks, e.g., bubonic plague! Don’t repeat past mistakes!

    1. All dogs are descended from the grey wolf
    2. All wolves originally evolved in North America (now almost extinct in America !)
    3. Wolves have a very positive impact on environment, proven in Yellowstone Park and elsewhere on flora and fauna, kill sick and old in herds, prevent herds from over-grazing
    4. Wolves/dogs helped us evolve and are still helping us in many ways
    5. Wolf -First domesticated animal by man, partner in survival

    • 4. Wolves/dogs helped us evolve and are still helping us in many ways

      Oh, so it wolves/dogs who helped humans evolve into what they are today–thanks a lot! If only they could help us evolve out of the mess we’re in…

      Seriously though, thanks for the comment and the Facts list.
