Stop Prairie Dog Poisonings!
READ THE SHARE !!!!!!!!
New Petition ! 46 signed 6/22 2:41am ET
The Forest Service wants to make it easier to poison and kill prairie dogs on the American plains -- risking creatures like burrowing owls, hawks, swift fox, the critically endangered black-footed ferret and the complex balance of life on the American Prairie.
Widespread poisoning could kill tens of thousands of prairie dogs, which would jeopardize the continued recovery of the critically imperiled black-footed ferret, the most endangered mammal in North America.
The public has 45 days to comment on this proposal - the deadline is in July. Take action now! Your comments will be most effective if they are personalized. Tell federal officials why you think prairie dogs -- and our grassland ecosystem -- should be protected.
