In less than 72 hours, the state of Wisconsin allowed 216 wolves to be legally killed statewide, during the day or night using dogs, snares, traps, guns, night vision technology, and even running them down to exhaustion with snowmobiles. This hunt was detrimental to our wolf population and they cannot withstand another hunt this fall.
Today the US House of Representatives passed HR 6784, the “Manage Our Wolves Act” despite public opposition from constituents, scientists, hunters and business owners.
Make the call to your representative and urge them to vote "NO" on HR 6784 using this toll free number (847) 232-6848 today and tell them the wolf needs the protections of the Endangered Species Act.
The US Fish & Wildlife Service is once again taking steps to remove the gray wolf from the endangered species list. The move comes after a federal appeals court retained federal protections for the species last year.
Congress should not enact laws to circumvent the courts, ignore science or take away our right to challenge decisions.
