Ask DIRECTV to Pull Its Anti-Wolf Ad

Ask DIRECTV to Pull Its Anti-Wolf Ad

They’ve been hunted for sport, shot at from the air, poisoned, blamed for countless problems, lost much of their range and saw the brink of extinction by the 1960s.

As is they don’t have enough problems being demonized, DIRECTV launched a “Frozen in Place” commercial in November perpetuating the stereotype that wolves are vicious man-eaters and jokingly calls it “Pauses with Wolves.”

Please sign Defenders of Wildlife’s petition asking DIRECTV to stop contributing to misconceptions about wolves by pulling their ad.

Okay guys enough- let'smove on--find the petition that wants to cstop Virginia (the state I am currently in) from classifying DOGS as LIVESTOCK. Let us animal lovers work hard - IMMEDIATELY to save our dogs from a law that would strip them of much of the protection they now have!!! Let's put our energy there--also, Michelle S. sent a petition - animal experimentation on dogs in New Jersey and UK by HLS Labs--find the petition to fight this and sign please. Thanks guys-Keep up the good work.
