Send a message to Secretary Jewell today - tell her your vision of a thriving western U.S. includes protected wolves. They are killing too many wolves! This picture is from "only good wolf is a dead wolf" page on Facebook. Sick! Please sigh petition.

Notice where the kill shot was! The POS can’t risk hurting the ruff or the tail. Wolf hunters are the scum of the earth!

The way to help wolves is to submit an individual comment at the Fish and Wildlife Service government regulation page. Here is the link:
http://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=FWS-HQ-ES-2013-0073
Here is the comment we submitted. You are welcome to use it, edit it, share it etc.
My family and I strongly oppose the reduction and/or removal of full federal protection for gray wolves. Gray wolves need to remain under the endangered and threatened wildlife protections because the species is in fact endangered and threatened.
We urge you to listen to the scientists who are most familiar with, and knowledgeable about, these wolves. These scientists have carefully explained why and how gray wolves remain endangered and threatened, rather than recovered.
These scientists have also identified suitable habitat for gray wolves in the southern Rocky Mountains, Pacific Northwest, Northeast, and elsewhere where wolves are barely present, if at all. Wolves attempting to reach these parts of their former range already face very difficult odds. If federal protections for gray wolves in the lower 48 states are removed, this will make it impossible for wolves to recover in additional parts of their former range.
Gray wolf recovery has not occurred and is certainly far far from complete. Reducing federal protection would eliminate even the possibility of wolf recovery in areas around the country where it has barely begun, including states that possess some of the nation's best unoccupied wolf habitat, such as northern California, Colorado, and Utah. Further, as the scientists have explained, the ecosystems and people of the regions that have suitable habitat for gray wolves would benefit from having gray wolves there.
The reduction and/or removal of federal protection is also deeply flawed and wrong because it would turn wolf management over to the states, thereby elevating political anti-wolf hysteria over science and sound wildlife management principles. Montana, Wyoming and Idaho — where wolves have already been delisted — are not managing wolves the way they manage other wildlife such as elk, deer, and bears. Instead these states are eliminating wolves as much as they can. This further makes gray wolves endangered and threatened.
Although it has only been 2 years since the states in the Great Lakes and Northern Rocky Mountain regions were allowed to start hunting wolves, more than 1,200 wolves have been killed, including pups and pregnant mothers. Further, they are allowing it to be done in cruel, heartless and inhumane ways that have no place in our country. This even includes killing an iconic Alpha female that was part of important research to better understand these complex and highly-social animals.
It is abundantly clear that gray wolves remain endangered and threatened within the meaning of federal law.
Other people and organizations have explained the many, many reasons that federal protections for gray wolves should not be reduced and/or removed; indeed federal protections for them should be strengthened and extended.
For example, wolves as a species regulate ecosystem balance within native habitats. Without wolf predation, populations of prey animals such as elk, antelope and deer become too large. Lacking adequate plant resources to feed on, they eat any plants available, wiping out trees and other essential plants in their territories. Where wolves are reintroduced, prey animals and native plant species return to sustainable numbers. A lack of protection for America's wolves in the past has been proven to lead to ecological chaos.
We will not repeat or include the many other reasons here. We do, however, urge you to heed them, especially the evidence and opinions from knowledgeable scientists.
With every fiber of our being, we implore you not to go ahead with this devastating proposal to reduce and/or remove federal protection for wolves.
Thank you for taking seriously, our heartfelt comments on this issue of vital importance to us all.

Sent Message and also shared on FB! Please everyone share this widely as Judy suggests! I couldn't agree more with you Judy, these people that hunt wolves, especially as they're still endangered, are the scum of the Earth! We cannot let these morally bankrupt people persuade Secretary Jewell to remove wolves from the ESL in the lower 48 states. Thank you Richard S. also for your comment. This is a great suggestion. Right now the US Fish and Wildlife Service is accepting comments about wolves and where the American people stand on this important issue! I urge you to go to that web address that Richard S. has posted above and leave your comment about why the wolves need to stay on the ESL in the lower 48 states. There is only a very limited amount of time to do this. Please take action and leave your comments there.
