Coalition of Animal Welfare, Conservation, and a Native American Tribe Seeks Reinstatement of Federal Wolf Protections

In collaboration with other wildlife advocacy organizations and the Tribes of the Great Lakes, we have filed an amicus brief on behalf of the wolves in Wisconsin to restore the legal protections critical to their survival.  We will not let another slaughter like we witnessed in February occur again without a fight.

What Just Happened to Wisconsin’s Grey Wolves?

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.
