They will soon be going extinct in Idaho and Montana, and Wyoming if Gov. Matt Mead has his way! Then Obama will be know as the President who made wolves go extinct in the US again because of his dirty deal with Tester! PLEASE BOYCOTT MONTANA, IDAHO AND WYOMING. THESE STATES ARE ALLOWING DESPICABLE THINGS TO BE DONE TO WOLVES! MONTANA - SHOOTING WOLF PUPS WITH BOW AND ARROWS! Now, a bounty on mountain lions and wolves - even $20 for the heads of kittens and pups! Idaho - will be using live bait, mainly dogs, to lure wolves and they can be shot from hang gliders, ultralights, anywhere, anytime. The motto in Montana and Idaho - kill 5, tag one! Disgusting!

When our politicans like $arah Palin, Rick Perry and most all of the GOP/teabagger red state politicians are up front about no gun controls and the promoting of hunting animals for sport/fun, as well as 'population control' of animals, it is no wonder that so many of our animals in nature are going extinct. THe sad truth is that too many may end up surviving only through captivity. Politics/Money take all..it's the world we live in even though many fight long and hard to prevent this from becoming fact. Public lands are no longer off limits when it comes to corporate greed and our wildlife and enviorments are at the mercy of corporates...who as we've all been witness to the fact that they, have no mercy when it's wildlife verses their corporate greed/money. Somehow,someway, together we must try and find 'reserves' that can forever be off limits to their control/greed, even if limited amounts of wildlife can survive within them...it's that or have them go extinct. As one commenter posted...no matter how many petitions we sign, many about the same animal, 'they' win,the wildlife loses all too often.
Alternatives for their survial must be found and acted on as petitions just aren't effective enough. Not say'n we should stop those as we should not.... but the reality says ...look for other options should they fail to protect these animals for future generations to come. Corporates cut the timber in our national forest, mine for minerals in our public and national parks, drill for oil/gas and on and on. Once they get their foot in the door for one thing they do not stop with their greed resulting in our resourses and our wildlife suffering greatly from it. We must say no to all these things... if the animals/wildlife.... are to have so much as a slight chance of survival in the wild.

I do want to add that ''population control' is important in some cases as many animals no longer have the number of natural preditors that keep their populations in control so that they and other animals survival and their food resorses are kept in check in particular wilderness areas in particular. ..but a free for all killing spree is not 'control' , it does lead to extinction in too many cases.
Corporates will use the 'population control' to make way for their profit projects and that is where the public really has to keep a watchful eye to make sure that it goes no farther than common sense dictates for the continuing survival of the animals who's populations are suppose to be under 'controlled' status only. That's where we here on care2 can be of great value for the animals in question..by keeping our common sense in check when it comes to population control for animals in the wild. It's not so cut and dry..as we'd like for it to be. What we would like for it to be and what the realities are , are what we must face in order to find 'solutions' for our wildlife and helping them to avoid extinction. We must give 'the establishment' alternatives as to how population controls can be done wisely and with the future existence/survial of our wildlife in mind. To save less than what we would like to save is better than to not save any,in my opinion. Alternative solutions to mass killing of wildlife for whatever reasons 'they' come up with for doing so is the very best we can do..and that is just the sad reality we face today.
