URGENT ACTION NEEDED! Important POOL for the Stray Dogs! January 31, 2006 1:33 AM

Gabriela P.

Please express your opinion!

Yesterday, a Japanese man had died in Bucharest (Romania) because of bite injuries. Nobody knows how exactly this incident happened (it is belived that it was a breed dog and it was actually in a yard), but media blames the stray dogs and is encouraging a histerical massive KILLING campaign !!!

The authorities are now thinking about KILLING THEM ALL after a 72 hours truce!

A Romanian TV channel is asking for our opinion, please, express yours at:

http://www.realitatea.tv/

The POOL is in Romanian and the translation in english is as follows:

How do you think the problem of stray dogs should be solved?

  • The euthanasation of strays (first answer)
  • The neutering of the strays (second)
  •  By giving a fine to those feeding the strays (third)

Update on Idaho Wanting Wolves Hunted! January 12, 2006 1:28 AM

Update on Idaho Wanting Wolves Hunted!

As already documented here (http://www.heartofthewolf.org/IdahoTurnover.htm)
Gale Norton has turned over management of Wolves over to Idaho.
Idaho as already documented here also is already interested in hunting
Wolves and is trying to get approval to hunt Wolves from her.

It is revealed that the Idaho Fish and Game now wants to get approval
to hunt 51 Wolves. They claim that hunting them will 'help' elk herds.

http://www.localnews8.com/home/2186832.html

This is nothing more than Idaho's resolve to destroy Wolves and the
persistant hatred of Wolves. Wolves will not annihilate their primary food
source. This is simply about those who hunt elk (which are hunted for fun
by people) don't want Wolves to have their food. Greed by those who support
the sadistic hunting of elk who don't want to see 'their' precious supply
depleted by Wolves who actually need their fraction of the elk population
for food.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

1) Contact Gale Norton (gale_norton@ios.doi.gov) and tell her not allow hunting
of Wolves in Idaho. This is because with this new proposal, the threat to
the Wolves in Idaho is more threatening than before.

2) Contact Idaho Fish and Game (http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/inc/contact.cfm)
and tell them to stop this madness. Wolves do not need to be hunted. It is
illogical and not proven that Wolves solely decimate their food supplies. This
plan is the culmination of people who hunt Elk for fun and don't want Wolves to
be able to feed on what they need to. They regard any loss of 'their' elk
as a problem. Elk shouldn't be hunted by people and Wolves shouldn't be
'reduced.'

3) Contact Idaho Senators today and please get them to listen to reason.
Get them to support the idea that these Wolves shouldn't be killed for the
reasons above.

Wolf Murdered in Montana! January 10, 2006 11:37 PM

Wolf Murdered in Montana!

Recently a Wolf was murdered in Montana by a ranch manager.
This is the seventh murder since rules were loosened last
year allowing Wolves to be murdered in livestock depredation
incidents.

http://www.billingsgazette.com/index.php?id=1&display=rednews/2006/01/05/build/state/25-wolf.inc


This murder has many players involved.

1)Jon Trapp: Statewolf Managament Specialist (john_trapp@mail.fws.gov)
who thinks that murdering Wolves is good for them as a whole and that punishing
Wolves in livestock incidents is ok. Although he claims to use
non lethal methods, most are outdated and useless, like rubber bullets.
He is one of the players who doesn't use actual non lethal methods and Predator
Friendly Ranching.

He needs to be contacted about how murdering Wolves isn't good for Wolves since
it just creates more hatred of them. Pure co-existence is not in promoting
fear and hatred of a species, but peaceful co-existence. Use this link:
http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html and the information in it to show that Predator
Friendly Ranching and actual non lethal methods do work.

2)Carolyn Sime (casime@state.mt.us): She is a successor to the Mass Murderer Ed Bangs and is the head
the Wolf Program for FWP. She callously believes that murdering Wolves is a
right for people to do and gave that 'right' when those who wanted them dead
asked for it.

She has a notorious history already: http://www.heartofthewolf.org/Sime.html
http://www.heartofthewolf.org/lazy.html

She must be contacted and shown that Wolves being murdered isn't a 'right',
but an atrocity that must be stopped. Non lethal methods and PF Ranching can
be used for peaceful co-existence between Humans and Wolves.

3)Steve Pilcher (steve@mtbeef.org), executive vice-president Montana Stockgrowers Association
thinks that murdering Wolves is small doses is ok since Wolves aren't being
annihilated outright. Of course he is going to be fine with murdering Wolves
now since rules against murdering them is gutted.

He needs to be contacted too, since murder of any kind is wrong. And that humans
can live with Wolves peacefully. Non lethal methods and PF Ranching do work.

Use the link and info above.

4)Dominic Domenici (Dominic_Domenici@fws.gov): Agent for the USFWS who thinks that
murdering Wolves is ok, and because it's legal it's acceptable. He too needs to see
the reality that murder is wrong, and that non lethal methods and PF Ranching work
and should be promoted.

Please take action now!

Stop Proposed Murdering of Wolves in Finland! January 10, 2006 11:36 PM

Stop Proposed Murdering of Wolves in Finland!

Finland is doing a full scale attack on Wolves.
The capital of Helsinki is the main force responsible.

http://euobserver.com/9/20626

First Finland is trying to get the Eurpoean Commission
to allow the murdering of Wolves. They think that Wolves
should be hunted and submitted in December a proposal to this
effect.

This proposal claims to give hunters the right to murder
Wolves in the clause of Wolves being a threat to
Humans, the Environment, and Wolves. Which all are bogus
reasons.

Please contact the European Environment Agency (http://europa.eu.int/idea/en/contact.htm)
to oppose this
new plan.

Write letters to:
Mr Soren NIELSEN
soren.nielsen@eea.eu.int

This isn't the first time that they have attempted
something like this.

Last September they were taken to court by the European
Commission because they handed out too many hunting permits.
Wolves in the European Union are classified as Endangered,
so they have protection.

Helsinki is also fighting the Wolves protection status.
Please contact the same people they are, the EC Court of Justice.
And have them please uphold the Endangered Status on Wolves in the
European Union.

Miss Estella CIGNA
Information Service
estella.cigna@curia.eu.int

And in Finland, fear and hate of Wolves is goading the Presidential
Elections to make hunting Wolves a focus. Finnish citizens consider
where they live with Wolves as being 'haunted.' Many consider them
a threat solely to livestock, children, and hunting dogs.

"People fear what they don't understand." -- Storm from X-Men 90s show
"They fight us because they fear us. Because they don't yet understand..
They must see that we are not a threat to mankind, but are a part of it."
-- Beast from X-Men 90s show

Contacting the Finnish Ministry and the Capital about Wolves and what
they truly are are a must.

In particular, use these links.

1) Use this Wolf FAQ to show that Wolves are not monsters, and that
they are living beings that deserve to live as much as humans do.

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/WolfFAQ.htm

2) Suggest these books that have additional information on Wolves.

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/Books.htm

3) Show proof that Wolves attacking Livestock is rare and can be
prevented without lethal means. And also mention that hunting
is a barbaric practice. No animal deserves to be hunted and eradicated.

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html

Contact Finnish Ministry (http://www.environment.fi/default.asp?node=7356&lan=EN):

Secretary to the Minister
Ms Kristina Tamminen
Kristina.Tammien@ymparisto.fi

State Secretary
Mr Stefan Wallin
Stefan.Walling@ymparisto.fi

Political Adviser
Mr Christian Sjöstrand

Contact Helsinki City Office:
http://www.hel.fi/wps/portal/Helsinki_en/Artikkeli?WCM_GLOBAL_CONTEXT=/en/Helsinki/Contacts+and+feedback/E-mail+to+the+Hel.fi+Web+Editors

Write letters under the category of suggestions. Writing to the Finnish Government is also a top priority since the elections are taking place around January 15th.

Gale Norton to Allow Hunting of Wolves in Idaho and Montana! January 07, 2006 9:40 AM

Gale Norton to Allow Hunting of Wolves in Idaho and Montana!

Gale Norton signed over management of Wolves over
to Idaho.

http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/nation/20060106-0016-wst-wolfmanagement.html

If that wasn't bad enough, she plans to allow hunting of Wolves
in both Idaho and Montana. She is going to sign allowing this to
be done, sometime next week.

http://msnbc.msn.com/id/10650767/

Hunting of any animal is wrong and thus this should be opposed.

Urgent Wolf Dog Pups Need Rescue from Kill State January 02, 2006 9:55 PM

  
I live in Southern Indiana, I was hoping you may know of some rescues in this area that would be willing to take some wolf mix pups. I was contacted by a shelter in Kentucky this morning that has 11- 6 week old pups that were just dropped off. In KY they have to euthanize the pups. They do not want to put these pups down. If we can get them out of there they will let me pick them up and take them to another rescue. PLEASE HELP SAVE THESE PUPS!!!
Thanks, Pat Armstrong

Norton and Kempthorne Will Authorize Murdering of Wolves! January 01, 2006 11:56 AM

 Norton and Kempthorne Will Authorize Murdering of Wolves!

It has been made official. Gale Norton, the so-called conservationist
will be making an agreement to allow Wolves to be murdered in livestock
depredation issues.

This is very bad for the Wolves, for it is not protecting the Wolves,
nor Humans in the end, but feeding the fire as predicted for racism
against Wolves. Already, Ron Gillett, of the Idaho Anti-Wolf Coalition
wants all Wolves annihilated. And Carter Niemeyer of course endorses
them in spite of even admitting that livestock depredation incidents
are low.

We must get the word out to all parties here that Wolves do not have
to be murdered in livestock depredation issues. And that education
and non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching practives can be used
to prevent such conflicts without violence or atrocity
(http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html)

AMOC Proposing Murdering Wolves in Livestock Issues! January 01, 2006 11:56 AM

AMOC Proposing Murdering Wolves in Livestock Issues!

AMOC is Adaptive Management Oversight Committee. It is a group that is specializing
in the 'reintroduction' of Mexican Wolves in Blue Range (in Arizona and New Mexico).
It is a huge project which of course consists of the consortium of the
US Fish and Wildlife Service, Wildlife Services, APHIS, and more.

Already, they are proposing outdated and ineffective means of non lethal methods:
cracker shells and rubber bullets. And once again, this 'recovery' effort is going
to allow the murder of Wolves in livestock issues in the words of the euphemism
called control. Although these 'recommendations' won't even be ratified until 2007,
we don't need to wait until Wolves die to take action.

Please write to this email address: mexwolf@azgfd.gov

Use the links and information from this url:
http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html

If you would like to see the 'recommendations' on them wanting to murder Wolves, here it is:

Black Mountain's Full Moon Farm connected with Gentle Jungle! December 27, 2005 8:45 PM

Black Mountain's Full Moon Farm connected with Gentle Jungle!

Thanks to a tip, it has been revealed that Maverick from Black Mountain's Full Moon Farm was
sent to a place called Gentle Jungle to be used in the film. As it turns out,
Gentle Jungle has a notorious history of using and abusing animals for Television
and Movies. Below is the correspondence and the individual who kindly revealed
another wheel in the conspiracy in Narnia.

From: **********@*****.com
Date: Tue, 27 Dec 2005 00:06:03 EST
Subject: Chronicles of Narnia
To: mike@heartofthewolf.org
Dear Mr. Wagner:

While looking for facts on the way Wolves are portrayed in Narnia, I happened to
find your website. I too wrote to Miss Brown, and recieved roughly the same letter
as you did in return. But, I did some searching and found all the other wolves
were supplied by a place known as "Gentle Jungle" (this is also where Maverick
the wolf dog has been sent) I also wrote an email to them saying how wolves
should not be potrayed as evil, becuase they are gentle ,intelligent creatures.
I have just recieved a response, and was appalled at what they wrote!
Their reply is exactly as follows:

"You obviously have never watched three or four wolves eat something
while it was still alive. Do you think Anthony Hopkins is a mean person.
It is a movie!"

I looked into this "Gentle Jungle" a bit and found a few articles about them being
involved with animal abuse. Including the following from here:

http://www.motherjones.com/news/outfront/1997/01/rothman.html

"Clyde the orangutan died a few months after filming Any Which Way You Can in 1980.

During a federal hearing alleging animal mistreatment against the training company, Gentle Jungle, an assistant claimed a trainer beat Clyde with a cane and an ax handle.

Gentle Jungle was fined for other abuses, but not for harming Clyde -- at the time abusing primates was not illegal."

I noticed a few other articles talking about their animal abuse, and saw animals
in small concrete cages on their website. I would like to inform as many people as possible about "Gentle Jungle" and their cruelty to animals... And I believe maybe Miss Brown would like to know the facts on where her wolf dog was sent.

I just wanted to inform you of this, since your website was a good source of
information. I figured you, and other people who want to help wolves would like to
know about "gentle jungle"

Sincerely,
Nyssa McKinney  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Creative Non Fiction Supports Wolf Trapping! December 26, 2005 1:36 PM

Creative Non Fiction Supports Wolf Trapping!

A recent search conducted by Cindy, founder of Wolf Tracks on Care2,
came up with a disturbing article that was published.

The article is called 'Killing Wolves' by Sherry Simpson.
http://websearch.cs.com/wm/boomframe.jsp?query=killing+our+wolves+in+Alaska+must+stop&page=1&offset=0&result_url=redir%3Fsrc%3Dwebsearch%26requestId%3D2572eb1f2cac97a5%26clickedItemRank%3D15%26userQuery%3Dkilling%2Bour%2Bwolves%2Bin%2BAlaska%2Bmust%2Bstop%26clickedItemURN%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.creativenonfiction.org%252Fthejournal%252Farticles%252Fissue07%252F07simpson_killingwolves.htm%26invocationType%3D-%26fromPage%3DWMTRoll%26amp%3BampTest%3D1&remove_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.creativenonfiction.org%2Fthejournal%2Farticles%2Fissue07%2F07simpson_killingwolves.htm

It is an article which the author gradually becomes one
who abhorrs murdering of animals, to one who finally accepts it.
It is an article where, Sherry Simpson doesn't mind the
destruction of Wolves. She also is present in vivid detail
of the skinning and defiling of a Wolf that was murdered
by a trapper.

It's rather morbid considering that this article is
from a site called Creative Nonfiction. Is Creative Nonfiction
the murder of a Wolf, skinned and used as property?
It is it Creative when the author of this article
willingly watches all this happen while doing nothing about it?

No!

An aticle from a site that is called Creative Nonfiction
must be one that promotes something philanthropic in nature.
We cannot let a site that is supposed to be creative
think that articles like this constitute creativeness.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

Contact Creative Non Fiction at: http://www.creativenonfiction.org/thejournal/contact.htm
or information@creativenonfiction.org

Lengthy replies with really ethical thinking behind them is needed here.
We need to show the illogicalness and unethicalness of what
is going on here. Creative articles on this site shouldn't
have opinions that support murder.

ALSO CHECK THIS OUT:
I discovered a really disturbing product that claims to support
Wolves but in the end supports the hideous regime of the
USFWS/USDA/DNR.

Please go to http://www.heartofthewolf.org/DwCalendarBoycott.htm and take action.

Thanks for your support.

Field And Stream Wolf Hunt Poll--Vote No! December 22, 2005 11:58 PM

Field And Stream Wolf Hunt Poll--Vote No!

The recent disaster in Canada where Wolves were blamed
for the death of a man and as a result two were killed in spite of
them not doing anything wrong (see http://www.heartofthewolf.org/CanadaWolves.htm
for a complete breakdown of the situation) has come to a climax.

Field and Stream, the magazine that loves hunting,
of course wants to use this to start hunting them.

Please drop by and vote no for hunt on Wolves. If anything
this whole situation is the pinnacle of human atrocity.

So go to:

http://www.fieldandstream.com/fieldstream/0,13202,,00.html
(at bottom of page)

Here is the text of the poll question:

In the first fatal attack by a healthy, wild wolf ever documented in
North America, an ecology student in Northern Saskatchewan was killed
and eaten in early November. << and Eaten >>??
So we want to know, do you think it's time to start hunting wolves?
Yes
No

They also have their own version of events which of course blames
the Wolves for the incident and want them hunted. They also have
their own insidious archive of propaganda making them look bad.

Thirteen Wolves Murdered in Park County! December 22, 2005 11:58 PM

Thirteen Wolves Murdered in Park County!

The county known as Park has murdered 13 Wolves in the past year.

http://www.helenair.com/articles/2005/12/16/helena/c02121605_02.txt

This isn't the first time that this issue has arisen.

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/ParkCounty.html

It is even more disturbing since the contact information for Park County Predatory Animal Control Board
and Craig Acres, district supervisor for the federal government’s Wildlife Services
agency, cannot be found, at least on the web. One thus cannot contact both these parties and tell them
that what is going on here is wrong. That non lethal methods can prevent these conflicts and that
the murder of Wolves is not the answer. Which of course flags conspiracy.

All parties here including the murderous Rod Krischke, state director of Wildlife Services have a role in
this.

Non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching (http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html) are being denied and not used to peacefully prevent livestock depredations by Wolves. All these parties know what is going on here, that they
refuse to prevent conflicts and incite more by using murder to solves this issue where
it has time and time again.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

1) First contact Commissioners Marie Fontaine (mfontaine@parkcounty.us) and Tim French (tfrench@parkcounty.us).
They need to know that continued Wolf Murders are unacceptable. Non Lethal Methods and Predator Friendly Ranching
practices work and that their implementation and education to the ranching populace would stop this situation peacefully.
Since contact information with Craig Acres of APHIS/USDA/WS cannot be reaches along with the Park County Predatory Animal Control Board, they are the ones who have to hear this.

2) Rod Krischke had a hand in this considering he and the murderous Mike Jimenez of the USFWS in Wyoming work
together and slaughter Wolves. He isn't concerned with the success of Wolves. If he did he wouldn't have participated in
the 37 Wolf Murders in Wyoming that occured this year whcih 13 are in Park County!

Some of these atrocities are listed on these sites below:
http://www.heartofthewolf.org/USDAWYMurder.html
http://www.heartofthewolf.org/index2.htm

He needs to be contacted at (rodney.f.krischke@aphis.usda.gov) and told that the handling of this situation should
have never reached this point. Non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching has been proven time and time again.
The lack of implementing such measures has created this conflict. He needs to stop participating in this business of murder and start promoting these peaceful methods to successfully live with Wolves.

Please take action now!

Mike Jimenez Murders 3 Wolves and Plans to Murder Entire Pack! December 13, 2005 11:01 AM

 Mike Jimenez Murders 3 Wolves and Plans to Murder Entire Pack!

Mike Jimenez, who continually ignores the use of non lethal methods
and refuses to promote them and Predator Friendly Ranching, has struck
again. He has murdered 3 Wolves already of the Daniel Pack and plans to
murder the rest.

Contact him today at:
mike_jimenez@fws.gov

Use this as proof and information that he should use:
http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html

Contact him immediately!

In the meantime, it should be known that the notorious Wolf Murderer
Carter Niemeyer is ending his reign of terror in January of next year.
Althought the USFWS thanks him (obviously since they as a whole
have been involved in the thousands of Wolves murdered in the states
of MT, WY, and ID), there will be a permanent article that will
always remember these victims who fell to him.

Of course his email address, to for those interested is:
carter_niemeyer@fws.gov

Museum has murdered animals on exhibit! December 10, 2005 2:32 PM

Museum has murdered animals on exhibit!

A recent article in the newspaper Fort Wayne, http://www.fortwayne.com/mld/newssentinel/living/13359108.htm
(Tip from Eles P. From Care2)

talks about a museum that opened up in July of this year.

It is called the Sheets Wildlife Museum. And want to know how many animals are in this museum
that he has murdered for the fun of it to put on display?

97 animals and 87 types of fish. In this article the founder Summer Sheets tries to say
he loves animals but he just loves to murder them. And Teresa Daniels, the museum director
thinks it's great that kids can see murdered animals from hunting and thinks it's ok.

One of the most disturbing parts is that this newspaper was promoting this horrible museum

TAKE ACTION

1) Please write a Letter to the Editor at:
http://www.fortwayne.com/mld/fortwayne/contact_us/feedback_np1/

And tell why you think that this is horrible and that animals should not be murdered

to be promoted in this newspaper.

Wolf Exploited by Animal Farm for Narnia Film pt. 2

Typo on this action alert. Maverick is a Wolf-Dog hybrid. Still, this doesn't diminish the principle and reason for this action alert.

Wolf Exploited by an Animal Farm for Narnia Film

“People can justify just about anything.” -- Jack McCoy from Law and Order

Upon the recent uncovering about how a live Wolf was dragged to
be used as an evil monster in the film,

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/Narnia.htm

more information has
surfaced.

http://www.mountainx.com/news/2005/1207news.php

In particular, it has been revealed that the Wolf's name is Maverick
and that he came from a Black Mountain's Full Moon Farm.

The founder Nancy Brown decided to use the Wolf in the film, despite
knowing that the Wolf would be portrayed as evil. In this new article
that has surfaced, she has pulled a tactic known as greenwashing.
Greenwashing is when someone who commits and atrocity against the
wild and tries to cover it up by claiming to do something ethical.

In this article 'Screen wolf', she actually believes that although
the Wolves were portrayed as evil in the film, that the big myth
of the big bad wolf will be dispelled because he was a higly trained Wolf.

Millions will see this film and see the Wolves as monsters. And since
when did Wolves become dogs? I know most Wolf Sanctuaries out there,
like Wolf Mountain Sanctuary thrive on educating the public and
treating the Ambassador Wolves with respect, rather than making them
like pets and saying it's a good Wolf so its okay to use it in a film
as evil.

This is greenwashing at its finest, and it is a shame that real Wolves
have to be involved in this scheme. It is also hypocrisy. She didn't
have to use the Wolf known as Maverick in the film. She could have
educated the populace about Wolves without having him in the film as an
evil monster.

Colorado Sanctuary Faces Closing - Possible Euthanasia December 09, 2005 11:28 AM

Colorado Sanctuary Faces Closing - Possible Euthanasia

The following is a heart wrenching story of an animal sanctuary similar to Big Cat Rescue in Colorado facing closing and possible euthanasia of some or all of its animals. Please read through the story.http://cbs4denver.com/pets/local_story_339170918.html

Please visit their web site - www.wildlife-sanctuary.org - and make a donation. As one of the volunteers has said, any little bit will help put a dent in their crisis.

“Wild Animal Sanctuary”

1946 WCR 53
Keenesburg, CO 80643
303-536-0118
information@wildlife-sanctuary.org

The center should in addition not euthanize these animals, but find safe places for them to go as well. Animals shouldn't be protected from atrocity, just to be murdered. Please donate now to slow down the process of the closure of this Sanctuary.

Take action to protect Europe's Wolves! November 23, 2005 12:17 PM

Take action to protect Europe's Wolves!
http://passport.panda.org/campaigns/campaign.cfm?&uCampaignId=1061

Switzerland, a country with only two or three wolves, is trying to downgrade the animal's conservation status and allow it to be hunted across Europe.
The Swiss proposal, which was submitted to the Council of Europe, will be voted upon at a meeting next week.
Switzerland should immediately withdraw its proposal and instead work to maintain the wolf's protected status in Europe.


Got this from Planet of Animal Fanatics at Care 2.

Don't See Film Version of Chronicles of Narnia! November 23, 2005 2:11 AM

Don't See Film Version of Chronicles of Narnia!

Wolves falsely portrayed in film version of Chronicles of Narnia Film!

As you readers are most likely aware of, the film Chronicles of Narnia, made by Disney, will
be out in theaters on Christmas Day. I am sure due to the current population of the U.S., many
drones will see it and it will make millions of dollars.

However, I for one will be one of those who will not be seeing the film. Why you ask?
Check this out. In the film, there is a scene that is not in the books that will be defacing the Wolves.

It is a scene where Wolves are chasing the main protagonists to a chunk of ice where they are trapped.
Then one of the children uses the staff he was given to help him and the others escape.

http://www.narniafans.com/movies/faq/page03.php

It's rather sad considering the film's creators decided to import them from New Zealand just to be portrayed as 'evil animals.' Not to mention this is going to leave the impression on children for years that Wolves are evil.

http://www.theonering.net/archives/theonelion/10.21.04-11.08.04

Oh yeah, did I forget to mention that you also get to fight Wolves in the home game based on the film?

As one critic describes:

GamePro
The between-level load times are also slow, but the greatest concern is the unhelpful and idiotic friendly A.I. that leaves you alone, fending off hordes of attacking wolves while your siblings stand stupidly by.

http://www.metacritic.com/games/platforms/xbx/chroniclesofnarnia

Don't blame C.S. Lewis for the fact that his movie has been altered severely. He was a lover of animals and humans alike. In fact, he said this once.

"If we cut up beasts simply because they cannot prevent us and because we are backing our own side in the struggle for existence, it is only logical to cut up imbeciles, criminals, enemies, or capitalists for the same reasons." -- C. S. Lewis

So I think he would have a beef with not just the movie but the game as well. And I am sure he is also rolling in his grave right now.

So thanks once again to Disney (who once did this in the animation adaptation of Beauty and the Beast), Director Andrew Adamson (The Creator of Shrek) and his staff for making a film that perpetuates Wolves as being monsters and evil.

You won't be getting my 9 dollars. And I hope those who love animals and respect life won't see this movie or recommend it to children for the same reasons above. So pass this on, if you could.

Canada 'Conservation ' Officers Promote Fear and Violence Against Wolves! Part 2. November 22, 2005 1:26 PM

Canada 'Conservation ' Officers Promote Fear and Violence Against Wolves! Part 2.

  Recent horrific events have continued in Wollaston Lake area, Saskatchewan, Canada. At first it was Wolves who were framed for the death of a man. And Tim Trottier had made it legal for Humans to murder Wolves in 'self defense'.

What Can You Do?
 1) First contact Tim Trottier. His invovlement in this incident is highly likely. Please contact him at
 ttrottier@serm.gov.sk.ca
 And ask him to stop the Wolves from being murdered. The last two should be peacefully relocated from the area of this whole disaster.
 2) Contact the Minister of Saskatchewan, David Forbes Minister of Saskatchewan

Canadian Government Wants Wolves Murdered for Science Experiment! November 18, 2005 12:45 PM

Canadian Government Wants Wolves Murdered for Science Experiment!

 "Humans are capable of the most wonderful and the most terrifying things with the power of science.  As a scientist, it makes me shiver just thinking about it." -- Ciel, from Megaman Zero 4

Canada's government is doing a full scale attack on the Wolves. It first started with the Canadian Government allowing humans to murder Wolves in 'self defense' after a false news reports in print were saying Wolves recently killed a man.

http://www.cbc.ca/sask/story/wolves051114.html
http://www.heartofthewolf.org/index2.htm

Now scientists from the Ministry of Natural Resources want to have Wolves murdered for 'research.'
They want to find out population of information of Wolves. Numbers, gender and species. This can be done without violence or oppressive means. The Canadian Government is just using this as an excuse to mass murder Wolves. The MNR is using hunters and trappers, who are more than eager to murder Wolves, to do this.

http://www.fftimes.com/index.php/2/2005-11-02/23425

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

1) First contact the 'scientist' Lisa Harvey, who is organizing this effort. Her address is:

Attn: Lisa Harvey
Ministry of Natural Resources
479 Government Road
P. O. Box 730
Dryden, Ontario
P8N 2Z4
Tel: 807-223-3341
Fax: 807-223-2824

You need to tell her that violent or oppressive means do not have to be used in determining Wolf population numbers. By hiring hunters and trappers to murder Wolves for research, she herself is a
murderer and helping the Canadian Government's agenda to murder Wolves. This is unacceptable and should not be done.

2) Contact other Canadian Officials

Here is other contact information for various officials that you need to contact about this issue.

IMMEDIATE HELP NEEDED 6:20 AM

I know this group is based on Animals Helping Humans, and maybe I should not post this here, but I have to get the word out FAST!

As I mentioned before I am adopting a new horse and I just recieved a Cry for Help from his foster Mom. Here is the email I recieved and what I sent out to my network.!

I just recieved the following email from Stormy's Foster Mom - Please Read, and pass on through your groups. This horse only has until tomorrow or she goes to slaughter!

There is something you could do for me.  We came across a mare that is going
to the NH meat auction tomorrow if she doesn't have a home by then.  We've
offered to pay her "ransome" of $200 if AC4H can find sponsor's for her
transportation to us and Christy at AC4H's is trying.  I don't know if you
pray or not, but if you do, please pray that this mare can find a way to us.
You can see her at http://www.ac4h.com/ - she's the Palomino Paint mare.
The look in her eyes says she's given up.  I think she needs us as much as
we need her right now - we miss our Frosty so much.

When going to the website above it took me some doing to find the Mares listing - so I decided to post it here as well:

Palomino Paint mare 2 blue eyes - aprox 14 hands smooth mouth top teeth are short eats grain and hay she is a been there done that mount rides alone responds to leg cues walk, trot and is quiet. 

Here is the link to here photo: http://www.ac4h.com/DSC05209.jpg
I would take her in, but my barn is full, and my new adopted horse Stormy comes home Sunday!

Anyone interested in helping please contact me, and I can pass the information on to the BITS coordinator - which is who sent me the original email above.

Thanks!
Please Make Adoption your First Option

Jimenez and USDA Wildlife Services murder four Wolves! November 18, 2005 12:04 PM

Jimenez and USDA Wildlife Services murder four Wolves!

Mike Jimenez of the USFWS and Rod Krischke of USDA
Wildlife Services in Wyoming have murdered four Wolves
from the Farson Pack.

http://www.jacksonholestartrib.com/articles/2005/11/17/news/wyoming/0ea03d72588150a4872570bc0003dd74.txt

This is once again because Jimenez failed to promote
non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching.

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html

Instead he decided to side with USDA Wildlife Services
(under the direction of Rod Krischke) who wants Wolves
murdered. They both have been involved before in
several Wolf murders. In fact, it was a murder of an
Alpha Female and her pups!

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/USDAWYMurder.html

What can you do?

1) First contact Mike Jimenez (mike_jimenez@fws.gov),
and tell him that this outrageous form of violence and
oppression is not acceptable. He needs to stop his
murderous rampages and start promoting non lethal
methods and Predator Friendly Ranching.

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html

2) Also contact Rod Krischke
(rodney.f.krischke@aphis.usda.gov) the director of
USDA Wildlife Services. And tell him that Wildlife
Services should not be about murdering Wolves in
livestock depredation issues, but promoting non lethal
methods and Predator Friendly Ranching methods that
allow co-existing with them without violent or
oppressive means.

3) Contact Jim Magagna (wsgajim@uswest.net) of Wyoming
Stock Growers Association. This man who represents
ranchers, needs to stop his pathological hatred of
Wolves, murdering them and start promoting peaceful
means to prevent livestock depredations.

Please Act now!

Canada 'Conservation ' Officers Promote Fear and Violence Against Wolves! November 18, 2005 12:03 PM

Canada 'Conservation ' Officers Promote Fear and Violence Against Wolves!

"People fear what they don't understand." -- Storm
from X-Men 90s Animated Series

"Humans are capable of the most wonderful and the most
terrifying things with the power of science. As a
scientist, it makes me shiver just thinking about it."
-- Ciel, from Megaman Zero 4

An incident has broken out in Canada. A man was killed
in a forest at Points North Landing. The true cause of
death is unknown. However, the Canada media as well as
the Canada Environmental Department have automatically
blamed it on Wolves. Although it is know that the
Wolves predated on the corpse of the individual, these
sources are acting on fear, claiming that the Wolves
killed the man.

Because of this fear of Wolves, they have issued an
order to destroy any Wolves that, 'attack' a human.
Thus as fear leads to hate, hate leads to suffering.
Even the 'scientist', Tim Trottier wildlife biologist
with the Canadian Environmental Department knows that
there has not been a Wolf attack on a human in 100
years! And animal attacks on humans are extremely
rare. And they don't attack humans for the selfish
reasons that humans do each other. Usually it is in
self-defense, or someone violating their territory, or
mistaking them for food.

http://www.cbc.ca/sask/story/wolves051114.html

As a result, you must protest this act of aggression
against the Wolves!

Environmental Department

Ed Bangs and Carolyn Sime Murder 9 Wolves in a month! November 01, 2005 7:01 PM

Ed Bangs and Carolyn Sime Murder 9 Wolves in a month!

Recently an article came out in the Billings Gazette about a murder spree that Carolyn Sime and Ed Bangs perpetuated.

http://www.billingsgazette.com/index.php?id=1&display=rednews/2005/10/31/build/state/28-wolfkills.inc

Why did this all occur? Because they failed to use non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching methods. And these two failed once again to educate ranchers about these methods. Of course Sime 'claims' to feel remorse but we know the true goal of the USFWS.

As Ed Bangs said it himself in this article: He isn't concerned with the number of wolves that have been ordered killed.

So once again Carolyn Sime and Ed Bangs ignore the lives of Wolves and murder them without a second thought.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

First you can send off emails to Ed Bangs and Carolyn Sime

Their email addresses are:

Ed Bangs: ed_bangs@fws.gov

and

Carolyn Sime: casime@state.mt.us

(She also was involved in the murder of two Wolves back in April of 2005 -- http://www.heartofthewolf.org/Sime.html , and at one point called Wolves not Wildlife and supported the oppression of Wolves! http://www.heartofthewolf.org/lazy.html )

Both need to be first held accountable for these murders since they shouldn't have happened. Second, they need to be told to start using Non Lethal Methods and Predator Friendly Ranching Practices instead of murdering Wolves. The information that proves it is here: http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html

And they need to also be told to start respecting wildlife, not treating Wolves like garbage to just murder and do with as they please. Only through promoting non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching will peace between Humans and Wolves happen.

And write letters to the Billings Gazette.

By mail to:
P.O. Box 36300
Billings, MT 59107-6300

By fax to:
(406) 657-1208

TWO WOLF ACTION ALERTS! November 01, 2005 5:47 PM

TWO WOLF ACTION ALERTS! 5:40 PM
Comment on Oregon Wolf Management Plan!

Due to the pressure of the Ranching community in Oregon,
they want to extend the comment period to Nov 30th.

This is because they along with the Oregon Wildlife Commission
want to make several 'changes' in the Wolf Management Plan.

These changes are:

• Designated the wolf as a special status mammal.

• Created a state-funded compensation program for livestock killed by
wolves.

• Allowed livestock owners without a permit to kill wolves caught in
the act
of killing livestock.

http://www.oregonlive.com/newsflash/regional/index.ssf?/base/news-12/1130606
041220860.xml&storylist=orlocal

What should be done?

Write letters to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

What you should have the focus of your letters be:

1) Althought compensation programs are helpful, what actually needs
to be done is further education and implementation of Non Lethal Methods and
Predator Friendly Ranching Practices. Wolves should not be murdered, period.

Proof is here:
http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html

2) Livestock owners should not murder Wolves and should not be allowed
to have permits to murder Wolves in livestock issues since it will most
likely lead to slaughter. Peaceful means and living with Wolves without
violent or oppressive means is the only way Humans can co-exist with them
truly.

Jimenez gives out Murder Permit!

Mike Jimenez has recently shown his true colors once again.
In an interview, he made a statement denying the constructive
nature of Non Lethal methods.

http://www.sublette.com/examiner/v5n31/v5n31s4.htm

Disturbingly enough, non lethal methods are only, 'considered'
to be used, but not used anyway.

What is the result of further denial and murder being the solution
for a false co-existence between Humans and Wolves? He makes
a murder permit.

http://www.sublette.com/examiner/v5n31/v5n31s4.htm

A permit to murder two Wolves on a rancher's property
since he won't take the time or effort to educate these same
ranchers about Non Lethal Methods and Predator Friendly Ranching Practices.

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

1) First write to Mike Jimenez, the USFWS 'Wolf Recovery' Coordinator at
mike_jimenez@fws.gov and tell him that murder is unacceptable in livestock issues. In fact
the whole reason this problem is continuing is because he won't employ
non lethal methods or Predator Friendly Ranching, so tell him this.

The proof is in http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html

2) Write a letter to the editor for the Sublette Examiner and tell that
non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching do work and are effective
and the lack of responsibility for them being used not only causes the deaths
of Wolves, but continues to create the rift that stifles peace between Humans
and Wolves without violence or oppressive means.

USFWS and DNR Want to Delist Wolves! Stop it now! October 28, 2005 2:38 PM

USFWS and DNR Want to Delist Wolves! Stop it now!

It started with an article that has the mass murderer Adrian Wydeven wanting to
bypass the recent ruling of Federal Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia who prevented the murder of Wolves in livestock depredations.

Article about permit:
http://www.greenbaypressgazette.com/sports/archive/sports_23150239.shtml

Articles about Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle:
http://www.wisconsinagconnection.com/story-state.cfm?Id=1237&yr=2005
http://www.timberwolfinformation.org/info/archieve/newspapers/viewnews.cfm?ID=2669

The USFWS is the one’s that Wydeven sent the idea to get a permit to murder more Wolves and delist them in three states: Wisconsin, Michigan, and Minnesota.

And the USFWS apparently supports the idea in the Northern Rockies.

http://news.fws.gov/NewsReleases/showNews.cfm?newsId=008BDB16-65BF-03E7-28DC7D9416C80573


Wolves don’t have to be murdered, period. Non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching proves that they don’t have to die. http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html

And delisting would be a death sentence for many Wolves.

What can you do?

First phone Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle and let her know of Adrian’s and the USFWS’ intent to defy her authority on this issue.

Her contact info is:
Chambers:  (202) 354-3230

Courtroom Deputy:
   Gwen Franklin (202) 354-3145

Court Reporter:
   Lisa Griffith (202) 898-0168

Second, call the U.S. District Court Judge Robert Jones of Oregon who has defended Wolves time and time again by not allowing them to be delisted to alert them of the danger to Wolves. (503)-326-8340

Then contact the USFWS and oppose this newest scheme to murder and oppress Wolves! Their contact page is: http://www.fws.gov/duspit/contactus.htm

Lastly, email Adrian Wydeven in opposition to his plans of murder!
adrian.wydeven@dnr.state.wi.us

New Updates on Action Alerts to help Wolves from 10/20/2005 October 26, 2005 12:12 PM

New Updates on Action Alerts to help Wolves from 10/20/2005
http://www.heartofthewolf.org/index2.htm

Although the article about the Anti Wolf Coalition in
the Statesman was from 2004
(http://www.idahostatesman.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20040620/NEWS01/406200325/1001),
it is still relevant since I got a disturbing reply
from Nate Helm (nhelm@spro.net) (one of the main
directors of the coalition. Naturally I had to reply
to lies and his proof of murderous intent. He still
wants Wolves murdered and oppressed to serve his
agenda. (http://www.heartofthewolf.org/NateHelm.doc)

Thus he still is a threat.

And what about Adrian Wydeven from the 10/20/2005
Action alert? adrian.wydeven@dnr.state.wi.us

He still supports murder in the guise of false peace.
(http://www.heartofthewolf.org/AdriansMurderManifesto.doc)

So contact them and oppose their nefarious plans! And
get them to stop murdering Wolves!

Hunting Interests Threaten Wolves! October 20, 2005 3:36 PM

Hunting Interests Threaten Wolves!

A recent article came out in the Idaho Statesman about one of the biggest threats to the Wolves.

http://www.idahostatesman.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20040620/NEWS01/406200325/1001

It isn’t ranchers (who don’t support non lethal methods or Predator Friendly Ranching) or the USFWS or the DNR in this article, it is hunters and outfitters that are also a driving force of hate and violence.

In particular, it is the Anti Wolf Coalition led by Ron Gillett and Jack Oyler
(Email: Nowolves@centralidahowolfcoalition.com Homepage: http://www.usa4id.com/ciwc/) and their sponsors, the Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife (led by Nate Helm) Email: USA4ID@USA4ID.com Homepage:http://www.usa4id.com/ciwc/) who are a threat to the Wolves as well.

They also support Tim Sundles (Email: manager@natureswolves.com)
, who has a site (http://www.natureswolves.com/index.html) promoting Wolf violence.  He also murdered a Wolf in a false claim of self-defense (http://www.keepandbeararms.com/Information/XcIBViewItem.asp?ID=2424) and committed another crime by murdering a dog. (http://www.ourplanet.com/imgversn/news.html)

Tim Sundles also made a recent appearance and supported murder of Wolves.
http://www2.kbcitv.com/x68477.xml


The USFWS and DNRs (those who murder within these organizations) oppress Wolves because they can and they are soulless murderers who believe Wolves must be enslaved by Humanity. They don’t care about ethics; they just want to get ‘the job done.’

The Anti Wolf Coalition and the Sportsmen believe that Wolves are a threat to hunting interests and hate their presence in Idaho. Fueled by pure hatred, and fear of something that is different than them, they want to eradicate Wolves completely in their state. The AWC has been around for many years, since 1999. They know that the USFWS already murders Wolves, and by showing their murderous hatred and crowds, they want the USFWS to murder more Wolves.

One of the worst parts is as this article points out is that they have their own ‘scientists’ to prove their racist and murderous ideals.  The worst part is that this movement is growing. Of course them being totally insane doesn’t help either.

What can one do? Contacting these groups about their hatred and racism and getting them to stop it is one manner. Telling them that Wolves aren’t monsters, they rarely attack people and on top of that, if they did eradicate their own prey which was elk, there would be no food for them. This whole situation is because of hunters being selfish and not wanting to share with fellow beings who live with them. Hating them because Wolves are different and because they fear what they don’t understand.

Or as one quote that I remember that is quite accurate:

“It is an historical fact, sharing has never been humanity's defining attribute.” -- Professor X from X2: X-Men United

Another is warning your Senators and Congress people about it. Although most states don’t have the problem of pure hating gun toting hunters, it could arise in the future.

We have to let these racist men know that we are not going to tolerate racism, prejudice and unjust violence. Just as the Neo Nazi’s were stopped from marching in Germany recently (http://sf.indymedia.org/news/2005/10/1720450.php), we need to stand up to these people. Just because they are a big organization doesn’t make them right or justified. We have to take a stand now before they gain more ground and Wolves lives will be in danger.

Wolves in Turkey and Wolves in Danger in Wyoming! October 17, 2005 3:13 PM

Wolves in Turkey and Wolves in Danger in Wyoming!
10/15/2005

Have European Union get Wolves protected in Turkey!

It is very likely the European Union will be admitting Turkey soon.

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/10/04/international/europe/04turkey.html?ex=1286078400&en=c2de51c923f6ec23&ei=5089&partner=rssyahoo&emc=rss

As of late, Wolves are not treated well in Turkey.

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/TurkishWolf.html

In fact, torture and the murder of Wolves on the Turkish TV networks is the epitome of what they think of them.
As a result the European Union, if they admit Turkey needs to begin an active effort to preserve and protect the
Wolves in Turkey.

Education, in addition to proliferation of non lethal Methods and Predator Friendly Ranching practices
in Livestock interactions with Wolves can create hopefully a lasting peace. This is our opportunity to get
peace in Turkey between Wolves and humans. A peace without violence or oppression.

Write letters now via email to the European Union. Here is the url for contacts.

http://europa.eu.int/geninfo/mailbox/inst_en.htm

Use the links and info from this url justifying the use of non lethal methods only in livestock situations.

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html

Also here are links to books and various info on literature on Wolves to distribute for educational purposes.

Sentaor of Wyoming Wants Wolves Delisted so Murders can resume wholesale!

Senator Michael Enzi has recently said in a new article,
"wolves have "decimated" the state's wildlife and harmed ranchers." http://www.casperstartribune.net/articles/2005/10/14/news/wyoming/5c8d0a56fe3f6c418725709a00578a47.txt

As a result, he is going to Gale Norton and wanting her to delist them.

We know this claim is ridiculous. Since Wolves rarely attack cattle,
this is one reason. Another, ecosystems with Wolves have finally
started to recover. Even studies in Yellowstone have proved this.

This is nothing more than fear and lies being generated as an excuse to delist Wolves so more can be murdered.

What can you do?

First send an email to Enzi at http://enzi.senate.gov/email.htm

This is to oppose his decision to have Wolves delisted.
Explain that Wolves are not decimating wildlife, and that Wolves
haven't been decimating livestock and that there are peaceful means
available to live with Wolves, rather than murdering them.

The proof is right here:

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.htm

Then please contact Gale Norton and tell her the same. She doesn't
need to delist Wolves in Wyoming, and she already has allowed more
Wolves to get slaughtered in Idaho and Montana. Wolves do not need to
be murdered for co-existence.

Please contact Gale Norton at :E-mail: gale_norton@ios.doi.gov

USFWS continues to murder Wolves! Stop it.  
10/13/2005

Graham McDougal of Montana Wildlife Services murders Wolf!
This new murderer has murdered one Wolf of the Battlefield Pack and seeks to
murder 2 more.

Him and Ed Bangs (who contributed to the report about this), continually
ignore non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching and also
don't educate others about it as a solution to livestock interactions with Wolves.
This is what they ignore.
http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.htm

Email them both today in opposition to their murderous ways and tell them to stop murdering Wolves and start using non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching
practices to prevent this. They know the Ranchers they murder for, so these
issues can be prevented without violence.
Their emails are the following.

graham_mcdougal@fws.gov
and
ed_bangs@fws.gov

 Carter Niemeyer wants to murder more Wolves!

Niemeyer wants to murder a Wolf from the Moyer Basin Pack. One has been murdered
already. And it is being 'donated' for research to a David Carrier of the University of Utah (carrier@biology.utah.edu) who will be harvesting the poor dead Wolf's organs for another project in Illinois.

As a result, he wants to murder another Wolf.
And he continues to ignore non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching as solutions to peaceful existence in the issues of livestock interactions with Wolves.
And as always Ed Bangs is the knowing bystander who refuses to do anything about it and tries to unsuccessfully hide the identities in this report of the murderers and collaborators involved.

Contact them both at:

carter_niemeyer@fws.gov
and
ed_bangs@fws.gov

And contact Carrier about his unethicalness for participating in dealing with
murderers for the sake of 'science.'

Carter Niemeyer authorizes eradication of Chesimia Pack! October 03, 2005 11:39 AM

Carter Niemeyer authorizes eradication of Chesimia Pack!

It wasn't too long ago that he wanted two members murdered.

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/Chesimia.html

Now he wants to murder the rest of the members of the pack.

http://www.casperstartribune.net/articles/2005/10/03/news/regional/fb064a401f6afa2c8725708e0005f76b.txt

Instead of showing that non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching can be
used to prevent livestock depredations without violence, Carter Niemeyer
is once again ignoring these methods and engaging in murder.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

1) First contact Niemeyer and voice your outrage against his continual
denial of non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching. If
he educated the rancher Tom Beale and helped getting him to
use non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching Practices, this
would have never happened. Murder is not a solution for co-existence.

2) In the letter to Niemeyer, use the links from here:
http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html
This is because all here is proof and that which he
continues to deny.

3)Carter Niemeyer's email is: carter_niemeyer@fws.gov

4) Spread the word, for the more people that oppose this, the more
it shows that many more folks refuse to have creatures that deserve
to live oppressed.

5)Take action now.

One of the best-kept secrets in Missouri September 30, 2005 11:17 AM

One of the best-kept secrets in Missouri
Becky Beckwith, bbeckwith@theintelligencer.com
09/30/2005

Although Darwin's theory of Natural Selection states that the fittest of all species survive the test of time, today even the strongest of them all cannot always escape screeching tires, gunshots, traps and land clearing.

The Wild Canid Center is working to reverse the trend to extinction for multiple species of canids through captive breeding, research and education. And this captivating mission is going on right under our nose. Open since 1971, the Wild Canid Center is a silent destination. With little funding, this facility seems to fly under the radar, although it is the premier breeding canid facility in the country.
A trip to the Wild Canid Center is an eye-opening, beautiful experience and the perfect place to take the family or any animal lover.

Commonly known as "the wolf sanctuary," the Wild Canid Center doesn't have the bells and whistles of the zoo, and you can't cuddle with the little pups. But this facility touches visitors in a real way, connecting humans with nature and their canine earthmates.
On Oct. 2, visitors have the opportunity to watch the wolves in action from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the facility's annual open house, "Rendezvous with the Wolves." The open house is one of three major yearly fund-raisers for the non-profit organization and the only time throughout the year that visitors may tour the facility without prior reservations.

Located near Eureka, Mo., the Wild Canid Center is on 65 acres of land within Washington University's Tyson Research Center.
Here, the organization works to carry out their mission of repopulating multiple dying species of wolves. Mexican Gray Wolves, Red Wolves, Maned Wolves and African Wild Dogs can be seen from viewing platforms or from the walkways between fenced enclosures. The Center consists of 12 to 15 enclosures that range from one to three acres, each equipped with the landscape and topography native to the wolf.

The Mexican Gray Wolf and the Red Wolf seem to be the center's current primary focus of attention. These species hinge on the reintroduction of multi-generational packs into the wild, and the Wild Canid Center leads the country in getting this done.
When Assistant Director Kim Scott started working at the Wild Canid Center in 1994, there were only 62 Mexican Gray Wolves in existence. Now there are 250 to 300 due to the efforts of the center's work along with other similar organizations within the Fish and Wildlife Service.
During a traditional tour, visitors will view the wolves' behavior while a docent tells them about the species, their origin and interesting behaviors. Visitors can compare these wolves to their descendants, man's best domesticated friend.

However, unlike the common household pet, these dogs do not receive loving human interaction. Wolves naturally fear humans, and it is necessary for them to have this fear when reintroduced into the wild, according to Scott.
Some of the wolves at the center came from zoos, and therefore must be broken of their human tolerant behavior. E
mployees and volunteers at the Canid Center work hard to have as little contact with the wolves as possible to promote their future success in the wild.
She said it can be most difficult to avoid a "cutesy" relationship with the wolves, but it is necessary for their well-being.
One of the hardest times, Scott said is when the staff must bottle feed a pup, yet not get emotionally close.
"It's hard when you're bottle feeding them to keep from saying, 'Oh, you're so cute' and snuggle up to them," Scott said. "You have to show restraint."

But all of this work pays off.
It is fair to say that the Wild Canid Center has single-handedly saved the Mexican Gray Wolf population from extinction, and that is just one step in their efforts to put an end to canid extinction.
"I would love someday to close this place because we wouldn't need it anymore. They're such majestic, beautiful creatures," Scott said.
Before that day comes, the Wild Canid Center would like to purchase their own land and build a more suitable facility to breed and observe the canids. The new enclosures they build will include rounded corners to avoid wolf injuries, visual barriers between the different species to avoid "fence fighting" (verbal scuffles between wolf neighbors) and the facility expects to be open to the public daily.

But this will only happen after the Center raises a few million dollars to facilitate the move. This weekend's open house is one of few fund-raisers to help the Wild Canid Center meet its goal.
At the open house visitors will not only have the opportunity to view and photograph the wolves, but will also enjoy Native American dancing of the Kahok Dancers and demonstrations by St. Louis Metropolitan Police Canine Division, Gateway Sled Dog Club, Gateway Search Dogs and Missouri Disc Dogs. Children's activities, games and face painting are also on the agenda for the day's festivities.
Admission for the open house is $15 per carload.

In addition to the open house, the Wild Canid Center offers two fall evening programs on Fridays and Saturdays from September through December. The Wolf Programs begin with the "Discovery Box" which allows visitors to touch wolf pelts and other unique wolf related items, view a slide show about wolf communication and join the wolves in a howl.

The Camp Fire Program is conducted around a campfire where guests will listen to "good" wolf stories and later take a walk to howl along with the wolves.
Program fees are $10 a person, regardless of age. Children under 5 are asked not to attend. Campfire programs for Halloween  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
URGENT: Help Stop Bill from gutting Endangered Species Act! September 28, 2005 12:41 PM

URGENT: Help Stop Bill from gutting Endangered Species Act!

 

Here is the info below. Please act now!

 

Mike Wagner -- Freelance Wolf Activist-- and Co-Host
of Wolf Tracks
http://www.heartofthewolf.org
http://www.care2.com/c2c/group/TRACKS

 

A bill to eviscerate the Endangered Species Act was passed by the House
Resources Committee last week and will be voted on by the full House of
Representatives tomorrow, Thursday, September 29.

With a big enough outpouring of phone calls, we can defeat this bill in the
House and send a strong message to the Senate not to mess with America's
safety net for wildlife and native plants on the brink of extinction.

Please call your congressional Representative this morning and ask him or
her to oppose Representative Richard Pombo's extinction bill, H.R. 3824,
that would render the Endangered Species Act toothless. Calls are much more
effective than emails at this time.

To find your Representative's name and contact info, go to:
http://actionnetwork.org/BIODIVERSITY/home.html .  (You can also use this
address to sign on to the Center for Biological Diversity's Biodiversity
Activist email alert system.)

Tell your Representative's office who you are and that you live in their
district. Tell them that you support the Endangered Species Act and want
your member of Congress to support the Act also.  Ask them to vote NO on HR
3824.

This bill would be a terrible blow to endangered species.  Among other
consequences, it would remove all requirements to protect endangered species
habitat.

 HR 3824 would:

*        Completely repeal protections for endangered species critical
habitat;
*        Allow political appointees - such as Secretary of Interior Gale
Norton - instead of scientists, determine what constitutes the best
available science;
*        Assure that recovery efforts are not implemented, by making recovery
plans voluntary;
*        Exempt federal actions from having to go through independent review
to ensure that they do not jeopardize endangered species;
*        Bankrupt the endangered species program by forcing the Fish and
Wildlife Service to pay developers not to violate the law.

HR 3824 passed out of the House Resources Committee last Thursday on a 26-12
vote. It now heads to the full House for a vote. If it passes the House, it
then heads to the Senate.

Your call now could make a huge difference for endangered species and the
special places they call home.

More information is available on the Center's
http://www.biologicaldiversity.org/swcbd/press/pombo9-19-05.html  website.

The Endangered Species Act is America's safety net for wildlife and plants
on the brink of extinction. Please help to keep that safety net in place.

Carter Niemeyer and Todd Grimm Murdered Two Wolves! September 26, 2005 11:12 AM

Carter Niemeyer and Todd Grimm Murdered Two Wolves!

Carter Niemeyer, a notorious Wolf murderer has struck again. This time he
joined forces with Todd Grimm of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Wildlife
Services Agency in Idaho.

They specifically targetted two Wolves.

As usual, non lethal methods, and Predator Friendly Ranching practices
were ignored and not used.

To even further the horrible news is the fact that Carter Niemeyer
further supports the weakening of Endandered Status on Wolves
so Idaho can hunt them to reduce their numbers.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

First, Carter Niemeyer should not have done this. For years he has
known about non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching practices.

He continues to ignore methods that have been proven to work along
with information that backs it up.

So email him and tell him that he needs to stop murdering Wolves.
And use links that are here.

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html

His email is carter_niemeyer@fws.gov

Second, email Todd Grimm and let him know that murder and oppression of Wolves is not a solution
for co-existence with Humans. Equality, respect, and using non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching
is the only way for co-existence.

His email is: todd.grimm@aphis.usda.gov

Please take action now.

Gale Norton has authorized the murder of more Wolves! September 23, 2005 11:47 AM

Gale Norton has authorized more Wolves to be murdered!

Gale Norton, so-called Conservationist,(http://www.whitehouse.gov/government/norton-bio.html)
has taken the lie of Wolves being successfully reintroduced and has ran with it.  She now is allowing Wolves to be killed in all livestock depredations in Idaho and Montana.

On top of that, culling is also approved, if populations get too big.

This is nothing short than a repeat of Alaska (http://www.heartofthewolf.org/1000.html)

She doesn’t care much about Wolves like much of the USFWS and DNRs and is continuing their work of murder and mayhem in the guise of peace and success.

She needs to be contacted immediately at:
E-mail: gale_norton@ios.doi.gov
Phone: (202) 208-3100
Department of the Interior 1849 C St., NW Washington, DC 20240

And told what she is doing is wrong, and that non-lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching practices are the only way that things are going to change for the better. For a future of peace between humans and Wolves.

What You Can Do
There are approximately 5,000 elephants in Thailand; the majority of them are in private hands. It is imperative that the torture revealed by PETA not be allowed to continue.

tied upPETA is urging the government of Thailand to immediately enact laws to prohibit the cruel treatment, confinement, and training of elephants and ban the use of elephants for commercial or entertainment purposes. The purpose of the laws is to protect these sensitive, intelligent, and highly endangered animals from future abuse. If passed and enforced by the government of Thailand, Phaajaan, as we know it today, would cease to exist.

villageWith the numbers of elephants in the world dwindling, Thailand should be a role model for other countries in establishing and promoting elephant protection at home and abroad. Tourists would flock to Thailand to observe herds of elephants from a distance roaming freely in sanctuaries instead of performing circus tricks on command. Please watch the video showing how these elephants are broken, and contact the following individuals to demand an end to this cruel, barbaric, and disgraceful practice that should have been stopped long ago:

Please let the tourism authority know that you won’t travel to Thailand until laws are enacted to protect elephants:

Re: puppy mills August 09, 2005 8:18 AM

Aug 9, 2005

Representative Paul Gillmor
United States House of Representatives
1203 Longworth House Office Building
Washington, DC 20515-0001

Dear Representative Gillmor,

As a concerned constituent, I am writing to urge you to support and
cosponsor H.R. 2669/S. 1139, The Pet Animal Welfare Statute (PAWS). This important legislation would amend the Animal Welfare Act to strengthen the licensure requirements for commercial dog and cat breeders.

Under the current law, any commercial dog or cat breeder who sells
dogs or cats directly to the public is exempt from licensure pursuant
to the Animal Welfare Act.  The PAWS legislation would amend the
Animal Welfare Act to require licensure for any person who 1) sells
more than 25 dogs or cats at wholesale or to the public; or 2) breeds more than six litters of dogs or cats, and sells dogs or cats which were bred or raised on the premises at retail. The effect of the amendment would be to bring many currently unregulated commercial breeders under the regulation of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the agency charged with ensuring that commercial breeding facilities meet the minimum standards set forth in the Animal Welfare Act.  This measure would close a problematic loophole that has weakened effectiveness of the Animal Welfare Act since its passage in 1966.

Additionally, PAWS would require licensure for any retail pet store
that sells animals imported from outside the United States.  Animals
imported into the United States from foreign countries may pose a
health risk to humans as well as other animals.  As there is no United States oversight of the conditions under which imported puppies are bred and raised, this regulation is critical to ensure that no health risks are present upon the sale of these puppies to the United States
public.  PAWS would also require all retail pet stores to keep
detailed records on the source of dogs offered for sale.

PAWS would also extend the suspension period permitted when a
violation of the Animal Welfare Act occurs.  Currently, the Secretary
of the Department of Agriculture is only authorized to suspend a
licensee's license for 21 days to stop the licensee from doing
business until he/she comes into compliance with the law.  PAWS would extend that suspension period to 60 days if the secretary determines that the violation will place the health of any animal in serious danger in violation of the Animal Welfare Act.  This, in turn, will protect both the health and safety of the animals and the public at large.

Lastly, PAWS will give the Secretary of the USDA the authority to
apply directly to the courts for injunctions when the Animal Welfare
Act is violated.  Currently, the Secretary must first ask the Attorney
General to apply to the court for an injunction.

Ultimately, the PAWS legislation will strengthen the Animal Welfare
Act and will thereby help achieve the objectives of the original
legislation and the Congressional intent.  Therefore I respectfully
urge you to support and cosponsor the Pet Animal Welfare Statute.
Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Your name etc.etc.

Below is a copy of letterfor hunting of animals with the use of a computer.

Aug 9, 2005

Representative Paul Gillmor
United States House of Representatives
1203 Longworth House Office Building
Washington, DC 20515-0001

Dear Representative Gillmor,

As a concerned constituent, I am writing to urge you to support and
cosponsor H.R. 1558, the Computer-Assisted Remote Hunting Act.  This important legislation would prohibit computer-assisted hunting, in which a "hunter" remotely aims and fires a weapon to kill an animal.  In remote hunting, a rifle and camera mounted on a platform are controlled by a person via computer from any location in the world.  With the click of a mouse, a person can aim and fire a weapon to kill a live animal across the globe. This "point, click, and
kill" method of hunting is not even supported by hunters, who
feel that it lacks any notion of a fair chase inherent in the sport of
hunting.

The hunting of animals with the use of a computer is cruel and
unfair.  Therefore, I respectfully urge you to support and cosponsor
H.R. 1558 to help put an end to this practice.  Thank you for your
time and consideration.

Sincerely, 

Your Name 
Your address

Update on Canada Wolves

I admit to misreading the Earthroots announcement on temporarily supporting the limited hunts on Wolves in Canada.

http://www.wolvesontario.org/wolves/

As said before, Earthroots supported the limited hunting because it was a ruse in order to get the actual goal of preventing hunting altogether.

So, it was actually me who misinterpreted the first line of the announcement originally.

Earthroots whole plan wasn't clear until I actually spoke with Melissa Tkachyk personally. And confusion rose throughout the whole talks during that originally.

Sorry for the confusion. No one is infalliable.

USFWS in Sublette not using Non Lethal Methods and Predator Friendly Ranching! July 31, 2005 8:21 PM

USFWS in Sublette not using Non Lethal Methods and Predator Friendly Ranching!

Mike Jimenez (a big time Wolf Murderer) is not using non lethal methods, nor Predator Friendly Ranching.

As a result, the same exact situation that occurred last year. This resulted in the murder of the Daniel Pack by the USFWS and Mike Jimenez.

He needs to wake up to the fact that his continued ignoring of non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching is creating more violence and hatred. That which he is responsible for in the murder of Wolves, including the Daniel Pack.

His email is:

Please take action now! Tell him to start using non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching that actually work!

Carter Niemeyer Wants to Murder Two Chesimia Pack Members! July 31, 2005 8:20 PM

Carter Niemeyer Wants to Murder Two Chesimia Pack Members!

Once again the USFWS ignore non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching.

Instead of using peaceful methods to prevent conflict, they allowed things once again to become a big problem.

As a result, the USFWS in Idaho under the command of mass murderer Carter Niemeyer have decided to murder two members of the Chesimia Wolf Pack.

The continued denial of non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching is going to continue to deal more murder and violence.

Please contact Niemeyer to first voice your outrage at this. Second, tell him that these methods prove that murder is not a solution and continuing to ignore them makes him an obvious part of the problem.

The methods are here:

Mexican Wolf Dies to Irresponsible USFWS! July 26, 2005 12:26 PM

Mexican Wolf Dies to Irresponsible USFWS! Hi everyone, About 5 days ago, it was reported by the Center of Biological Diversity that one of the most famous Mexican Gray Wolves, a member of the Fransisco Pack (http://www.heartofthewolf.org/Fransisco.html and http://www.heartofthewolf.org/Fransisco2.html) recently died. She died because of stress and exhaustion in captivity. This is the firect result of her mate being killed and her being relocated. It is also due to the fact that non-lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching, listed here: http://www.heartofthewolf.org/source.html are continually ignored. The USFWS constantly deals in murder and suffering rather than protecting the creatures they claim to. Contact John Morgart, USFWS Mexican Gray Wolf 'Recovery' Coordinator at: John_Morgart@fws.gov And voice your outrage at this atrocity and tell him to start using non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching so no lives have to suffer and so co-existence can once more be possible.

Stop hunting of Wolves in Canada! July 24, 2005 5:53 PM

Stop hunting of Wolves in Canada!

'Yestrday's good might be tomorrow's evil.' -- The Boss from Metal Gear Solid 3

'As long as people will shed the blood of innocent creatures there can be no peace, no liberty, no harmony between people. Slaughter and justice cannot dwell together.' --Isaac Bashevis Singer

'Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.' -- H.L. Mencken

Earthroots has taken a step that fits hypocrisy. They abhor hunting in the past and the decimation that it did to Wolves. Now in a recent plan created by the Ministry in Canada, they support limited hunting.

In the guise of representing Wolves, they say that limited hunts are the best thing for them.

So, hunting is bad in Alaska, but not in Canada, or anywhere else? The obvious implications are that to preserve peace, more organizations like Earthroots don't mind animals being hunted for sadistic fun and skinned and placed on walls.

How would they like it if they were hunted and skinned? Probably not at all. But since they are human, this doesn't mean anything.

How many more groups will stop doing the right thing and endorse violence and oppression in the guise of peace?

Earthroots wants people to support the limited hunts and other items listed below. To show that you still know what is right for Wolves, please do not support hunting of Wolves in Canada.

Contact Melissa Tkachyk of Earthroots at info@wolvesontario.org and or (416) 599-0152 x12 (office), (416) 819-7424 (cell) to tell her to stop supporting hunting in the guise of conservation.

Carter Niemeyer Murders Copper Basin Pack!

Carter Niemeyer, the 'Wolf Recovery' coordinator for Idaho, has murdered another Wolf pack. Not only that but another one was murdered by him previously. He continuously ignores non lethal methods and Predator Friendly Ranching. Like much of the USFWS he prefers bullets than peaceful co-existence.

As a result, you need to contact him and voice your outrage against this atrocity. And to promote methods that work and promote peace and education, rather than murder.

Carter Niemeyer's email is: carter_niemeyer@fws.gov

Wolf pack killed in central Idaho

03:20 PM MDT on Thursday, July 21, 2005

KTVB.COM

A wolf pack that has been preying on livestock in central Idaho has been killed by government agents. Officials confirmed that six wolves of the Copper Basin pack were killed Wednesday after repeated depredations on cattle. “We are hopeful that this control action will deter any future livestock depredations in this area,” said Carter Niemeyer, wolf recovery coordinator. “If the depredations continue, the rest of the pack will be removed.” Idaho Department of Fish and Game personnel were present observing the control action. The wolves killed two calves this past week on grazing allotments in the Challis National Forest between Mackay and Sun Valley. Last year the pack was responsible for killing four cattle, and livestock producers reported a large number of missing cattle in this area. So far in 2005, the government agency has ordered the lethal control of two wolves preying on livestock in Idaho. There are about 450 wolves living in the state.

Hi Everyone,

well as other information.

Instead of maintaining peace, he would rather use bullets to do so.

Contact him now in opposition to this. John_Morgart@fws.gov

Stop ESA rollback! July 08, 2005 2:01 AM

"The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality."
-- Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher.

Stop ESA rollback!

Congressman Richard Pambo has decided to introduce a bill to make rollbacks of protection on Endangered Species possible.

He wants more rigorous standards which would mean less species protected. He also wants clear absolute distinctions between threatened and endangered species. And reducing certain parts of it to be more 'effective'.

A huge report on what he plans to do (87 pages!), is available here:

http://resourcescommittee.house.gov/issues/more/esa/ESA_Implementation_Report5.17.05.pdf

This threatens all current Endangered and Threatened Species on the Act. Sudden changes now will make it prey to sinister forces that threaten the survival of Wolves and many other species.

To stop this, please contact your local House of Representatives and tell them to oppose this:

USDA Murders Wolf and Pups July 03, 2005 9:51 AM

USDA Murders Wolf and Pups

'As long as people will shed the blood of innocent creatures there can be no peace, no liberty, no harmony between people. Slaughter and justice cannot dwell together.' --Isaac Bashevis Singer

The USDA Wildlife Services in Wyoming recently murdered a Wolf mother
and her pups.

This is not only heinous because a Wolf was murdered, but her pups
were also slain.

The livestock interaction with the sheep could have been prevented.

The methods listed here would have prevented the sheep from dying.
And in addition to that, there was no reason to kill this Wolf and her pups.

Officials shoot wolves for killing sheep
Associated Press

LANDER - A female wolf and four pups were shot by federal wildlife
officials after the wolves killed 13 pregnant ewes owned by an
official with the Wyoming Stock Growers Association.

The wolves were shot last week in the foothills of the Wind River
Mountains, according to Mike Jimenez, Wyoming wolf recovery
coordinator for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The ewes were killed over two days earlier this month - seven on one
night and six the following night, said sheep owner Jim Magagna, who
is the executive vice president of the Wyoming Stock Growers
Association.

 
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Wildlife Services initially
planned to trap and collar the wolves when the agency received the
first report.

But when word of the second night's losses was received, the
decision was made to kill whatever wolves were in the area. Jimenez
said.

A male wolf and two other pups, also seen in the area in April, were
not found, he said.

Magagna did not know the estimated value of the lost livestock.

"These were ewes that were pregnant and just ready to lamb, so it's
going to be fairly high," he said.

Magagna said he is "a little bit nervous" knowing the male and two
pups were not caught.

"Hopefully, we're through with this one until wolves move into this
area again," he said.

The wolves were first seen in the area in April. In May, Gov. Dave
Freudenthal asked Fish and Wildlife to remove the wolves before
problems started.

The agency said it agreed to trap and collar the wolves but was
unable to do so because of bad weather.

Wolves are expected to be removed from federal protection as early
as next year, but the federal government has not approved a Wyoming
state management plan. The state has filed a lawsuit against the
federal government seeking the authority to kill wolves on sight if
they stray outside the two national parks and surrounding wilderness
areas.

Defenders of Wildlife and USFWS want Wolves hunted! July 03, 2005 9:50 AM

Defenders of Wildlife and USFWS want Wolves hunted!

"Yestrday's good might be tomorrow's evil."-- The Boss from Metal Gear Solid 3

'Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.' -- H.L. Mencken

Wolves in Wyoming are being pushed to be listed as trophy species so they can be hunted for sport. Suzanne Stone of Defenders of Wildlife thinks that it would limit disease there among Wolves. This is of course a lie, since no epidemics or disease have come up at all. Even then, hunting Wolves is unethical. And the USFWS is interested in supporting this.

This is not surprising for both groups since Defenders supported lethal methods in livestock interactions for the plan in Oregon, yet cries foul on hunting in Alaska.

http://www.heartofthewolf.org/paradox.html and http://www.heartofthewolf.org/hypocrisy.html

And the USFWS, including Ed Bangs have murdered hundreds of Wolves while being in control of the Wolves.

As a result, you need to email both parties your opposition to hunting of Wolves. I don't think both of these agencies would like it if their kin were hunted and had their heads put up on a wall. Not to mention, it is hypocritical for Defenders to support such heinous activity when it claims to be a conservation organization.

Wyoming plan bites into wolf protection

By Gary Gerhardt, Rocky Mountain News

July 2, 2005

Sticking to its guns to classify wolves as trophy animals and predators, the state of Wyoming will petition the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to delist wolves as a threatened species.

Federal standards call for maintaining at least 10 packs of wolves in each of the states where they have been reintroduced - Wyoming, Idaho and Montana - as a condition for removing them from the endangered species list.

Wyoming's dual classification was rejected last year by federal officials who said a plan that includes unregulated killing of wolves is not acceptable. Wyoming's challenge of that decision is still in court.

Eric Kefzler, Wyoming Game and Fish Department spokesman, said the petition, signed by the governor and drafted by the state attorney general, will be considered by the state wildlife commission on July 13.

The management plan, which is one consideration in the petition to delist, will remain intact, he said. It would guarantee at least 15 wolf packs in northwestern Wyoming, including those in Yellowstone National Park.

Wolves that leave the park would be considered trophy animals south to Pinedale and east to Cody, meaning they would be protected by a hunting season with limited licenses issued.

Any wolf that goes beyond those boundaries, however, would be considered a predator, like a coyote, that could be shot on sight.

Suzanne Stone, of the Defenders of Wildlife, said the number of wolves in Yellowstone National Park fluctuates and that there are a lot of illegal wolf kills, as well as disease, making it impossible to maintain populations without broader controls.

"We'll be very interested in what Wyoming has to offer," said Ed Bangs, U.S. Fish and Wildlife wolf recovery coordinator for the northern Rockies.

He said the key to accepting Wyoming's management plan always has been how large the "trophy" area would be outside Yellowstone Park.

"Once they cross into the 'predator' area, Wyoming law doesn't allow game officials to prohibit people from shooting them, even if the number of packs drops below acceptable levels," Bangs said.

Hey everybody...good morning. I was just reading my network messages and this petition came to me. I felt strongly urged to pass this along...


http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/194668703

This petition is being circulated to make others aware of what and who Oprah supports. This is concerning Dr. Oz...who is one of her "star" authorities on stress. She didn't mention the fact that he tortures animals...mainly dogs and puppies in lab experiments. The story not only outraged me but brought tears to my eyes when I read what they did to a new litter of puppies born to one of the "lab experiments". It is HORRIFIC!!! I ask all of you to take a stand as I did...to stop celebrities like Oprah and J-Lo from blatently supporting animal torture. I will turn off my TV and forgo the Oprah show if she allows this to continue...she unfortunately needs me...or at least she will when her ratings hit the dirt. I no longer listen to J-Lo or watch her movies...and if there were more that would commit to taking this stand, I know their attention will be gotten...especially when they went to the bank. Thank you all in advance...listen with your heart and not your ears...without us celebrities wouldn't be celebrities. And without us, more dogs and puppies are going to be tortured and made to endure unspeakable acts all in the name of science.

 Total Ban of Commercial Whaling
7799 Signatures

Category: Animal Rights

 Region: Global

 Web-site: http://www.gopetition.com/online/6179.html

 Charity: Greenpeace

 Description/History:
In June 2000 the International Whaling Commission voted to not support the South Pacific Whale Sanctuary. In 1998 over 1100 whales were killed for profit, despite the worldwide moratorium on commercial whaling.
Some species are still on the brink of extinction. By 1990 the Blue Whale numbers had been reduced from over 250,000 to just 1,000. It is time to put a stop to commercial whaling and find a permanent solution to protect whales.

 Petition:

To the International Whaling Commission and the United Nations Environment Commission: We the undersigned, petition that a "world wide ban" on commercial whaling be achieved within the next five years.

DEN Alert
Help Stop the Needless Slaughter of Millions of Sharks


Shark

Dear DEN Activist:

Each year 100 million sharks are killed, largely as a result of shark finning. Shark finning is a cruel and remarkably wasteful practice that involves cutting off the dorsal, pectoral and tail fins and dumping the rest of the shark back into the water. Often the mutilated sharks are thrown overboard while still alive, only to die a slow and painful death. This practice has become the method of choice to feed the global demand for shark fin soup, a popular delicacy in Asian cuisine.

Widespread shark finning is decimating the world's shark populations, resulting in declines of 90 percent or more in vast regions of the oceans. Much of this massive shark mortality could be avoided with an international ban on shark finning.

WHAT'S AT STAKE:

Last year, the international community banned shark finning in the Atlantic Ocean, but the practice is still rampant in the Pacific Ocean. Now is the time to ban shark finning in the Pacific as well. This June, governments will vote on a proposal to ban finning in the Pacific at an international fisheries meeting. The U.S. government's position on this issue could help sway the outcome of the meeting and the fate of these remarkable creatures.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

Your support is urgently needed to stop the needless slaughter of millions of sharks for their fins. Please visit www.savesharks.org and send an e-mail urging the U.S. government to actively promote a ban on shark finning in the Pacific Ocean. With your support, we can secure a brighter future for the lords of the sea.

2. Defenders Speaks at Senate Hearing on Endangered Species Act

Bald EagleJamie Rappaport Clark, Defenders' executive vice president, spoke last week at a hearing in the U.S. Senate about the Endangered Species Act. Clark, a former head of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service--the agency that oversees endangered species--explained to the senators how those critics who claim the act has failed because only a small percentage of species have been removed from the endangered species list have it backward. In fact, the original purpose of the act was to be a final safety net for species driven to the brink of extinction. And, on that count, it has been very successful--saving 99 percent of the more than 1,800 species that have been under the act's protection. Ten world-renowned scientists also sent a letter to the Senate last week with a similar message. Visit www.saveesa.org to learn what you can do to save endangered species and the act that protects them.

Dear Burton Weber:

Act Now and Tell Your U.S. Representative to Protect the Endangered Species Act:

The endangered species debate continues to heat up in Washington, D.C. this week. Rep. Richard Pombo (R-CA), Chair of the powerful House Resources Committee, is preparing efforts to undercut important protections for our wolves, bald eagles, sea otters, and other endangered animals. If you haven't taken action already, please go to http://www.saveesa.org and send a message to Congress today.

As promised, I'm sending you this email to update you on our campaign to protect the Endangered Species Act. Last week, we were on the front lines on Capitol Hill warning the Senate subcommittee on Fisheries, Wildlife and Water that this landmark law should not be weakened. Jamie Rappaport Clark, Defenders' Executive Vice President and the former head of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, never backed down as she went toe to toe with Bush administration officials and industry lobbyists.

Jamie underscored that the Endangered Species Act is a very effective alarm system that has already prevented the extinction of hundreds of species. I'm glad to report that her comments were picked up by hundreds of media outlets. You can read her entire testimony at: http://www.saveesa.org/2005/testimony.pdf

Endangered species are also getting key support from a group of well-known scientists led by Harvard professor E.O. Wilson. These scientists cautioned U.S. Senators that the nation's web of life – from micro-organisms to large mammals – could be in serious jeopardy if Congress undermines the Endangered Species Act. To read the scientists' letter, go to: http://www.saveesa.org/letter.pdf

Lastly, Rep. Richard Pombo (R-CA), Chair of the powerful House Resources Committee, released an unfounded report criticizing the effectiveness of the Endangered Species Act. It is the most troubling sign yet that Pombo intends to push harmful legislation through his Committee.

Sincerely,

Rodger Schlickeisen

P.S. We need all the help we can get in our efforts to protect endangered species. If you haven't already, please go to http://www.saveesa.org and take action today.

If you've already taken action, please help by going to http://www.saveesa.org/tellafriend.html and encouraging your friends and family to take action, too. With your help, we can protect the Endangered Species Act.

Dear Burton Weber:

Act Now and Tell Your U.S. Representative to Protect the Endangered Species Act:

As many of you have indicated, your emails to your congressional Representatives sent from www.saveesa.org between Tuesday afternoon and 5:00 pm EST on Wednesday were not transmitted. We here at Defenders apologize. This resulted from a glitch in our email communications systems and has now been fixed. Please take a moment now to let your Representative know that you want to protect our vanishing wildlife, and stop the Cardoza bill that would remove protections for our endangered species. You can now take action at http://www.saveesa.org.

Our apologies again for the glitch. Thank you for your patience and dedication to our cause.

The stakes couldn't be higher.

The cornerstone for the protection of America's plants, wildlife and habitat – the Endangered Species Act – is under direct attack in the Congress.

Rep. Dennis Cardoza (CA-18) has reintroduced harmful legislation – bill number H.R. 1299 – that would give the federal agencies license to ignore the habitat provisions of this landmark law. As you know, without habitat species can't survive.

Cardoza's bill is being actively supported and encouraged by Gale Norton's Interior Department which has testified in support of the bill and has launched its own systematic administrative assault on the Act.

Please email your Representative now and urge a vote against the Cardoza bill at http://www.saveesa.org.

The Endangered Species Act is the safety net for so many species on the brink of extinction. It has been a remarkably effective alarm system providing a way to save and restore wildlife like bald eagles, gray wolves, manatees, sea otters and countless other species.

But there are powerful corporate special interests - drilling, mining and development companies – that see the Endangered Species Act as an obstacle to greater profits. They've made massive political contributions to members of Congress and are now pressing to collect a pay-off.

Contact your Representative today at http://www.saveesa.org. The Cardoza bill could be on the floor of the House of Representatives soon.

To safeguard the Endangered Species Act, Defenders of Wildlife is mounting one of the largest advocacy campaigns in our history. We've already launched extensive media, expanded field organizing, joined in coalition with other groups, and stepped up our direct lobbying on Capitol Hill.

You are a key part of our program. It is critical that your Representative hear from you as a constituent. Please send your email today at http://www.saveesa.org. </
