URGENT! It’s coming….
According to insider reports, September 2018 is going to be the WORST MONTH for wolves and other endangered species that we have seen in decades, and WE NEED YOUR HELP.
– HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO –
Contribute to our cause. We are going up against some BIG MONEY including the NRA, Safari Club International, the gas + oil industry, logging, the Farm Bureau and Big Ag. Our time and resources are running out, and Wisconsin wolves could be back in the crosshairs within a matter of weeks. Friends of the Wisconsin Wolf & Wildlife has every intention to fight if and when Endangered Species Act (ESA) protections are lost, but we cannot take on this battle without your support.
Appear in our upcoming PSA on the importance of protecting wolves! We are looking for actors, celebrities and/or public figures to participate in a short video production about how wolves are falsely deemed the enemy as we’ve seen throughout history in folklore and fairytales. Please CONTACT US if you are interested in acting, costume/set design, sound and lights, videography, promotion, etc …WE NEED YOU !
– WHAT HAPPENS IF WOLVES LOSE PROTECTION –
Ultimately, if Wisconsin wolves lose federal ESA protections, two-thirds of the population will die at the hands of trophy hunters. The last time federal protections were prematurely stripped from Great Lakes wolves, state agencies opened up brutal hunting and trapping seasons and more than 1,500 wolves were killed in just three years.
Wisconsin is the only state to allow wolf hounding and also permit hounders to run as many as six dogs on wolves and other wildlife for training 24/7, year-round. Hounders are permitted to release dogs fitted with radio collars, giving them free-reign into the forest to run down packs of wolves. When hunting hounds meet up with wolves, it is inevitable that there will be death and maiming on both sides.
Quotas aim to reduce the Wisconsin Wolf population by as much as two-thirds, and the duration of the hunting season is too long (Oct-Feb) allowing it to extend into the breeding season, making it difficult for packs to maintain stable populations, potentially leading to the devastation of the Wisconsin wolf population altogether.
