Stop Idaho's Wolf-killing Hired Gun

Gray wolf
Bookmark and Share

Since they were stripped of federal protection in Idaho, 890 wolves have been killed in the state. But Idaho is taking its slaughter one gruesome step further: The state has sent a hired bounty hunter into our public lands to gun down wolves.

Wolves were nearly eradicated in the lower 48 states by government-hired killers. In a cruel twist, after nearly 40 years of work to restore these beautiful animals to the American landscape, Idaho now chooses to send a gunman to mow down two entire wolf packs. There are reports that the bounty hunter has killed seven wolves already.

Wolves evolved over millions of years to create a healthy balance with prey animals like elk and deer. But the hired gun is there to leave more elk for hunters -- even though Idaho wildlife officials say elk numbers are at an all-time high.

Please take action now and send a letter to the U.S. Forest Service and Idaho agency heads, commissioners and elected officials to call off the hunt.
