The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has announced its intention to remove Endangered Species Act protections for all gray wolves in the United States that are currently protected.
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.
Starting this Saturday, over 12,000 bear hounds will be set loose on public land across Wisconsin to harass wildlife and disturb the peace of these natural areas.
Imagine Wisconsin losing a potential 168,000 jobs and $17.9 billion in consumer spending. If the policy “rider” that aims to de-list Great Lakes wolves is included in Congress’s budget bill, Wisconsin could see a severe drop in these numbers. Wolves are vital to our economy in both direct and indirect ways.
This proposed bill would prohibit conservation wardens and federal law enforcement officers from enforcing wolf conservation laws, prevent funds to be used for wolf depredations, and stop all wolf population monitoring in Wisconsin. Please join us in opposition at the hearing on Wednesday, January 10th.
Each year hundreds of coyotes are killed in “competitions” throughout Wisconsin, but these contests send a message that killing is fun, wild animals are disposable, and life is cheap.
The assessment analyzes the potential environmental impacts of Wildlife Service involvement in wolf damage management in Minnesota.
