Don't Let Wyoming's Wolves Be Sacrificed

Center for Biological Diversity

Gray wolfThe feds are poised to remove all Endangered Species Act protections from gray wolves in Wyoming, leaving them under the power of state officials intent on slaughtering most of them to appease livestock interests. 

Wyoming law has already made 83 percent of the state -- home to at least five wolf families -- a "no-wolf zone," where anyone can shoot wolves and their pups on sight. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service predicts that, after federal protection is gone, no wolf packs will survive in this zone within a year.

Wolves would remain fully protected only within Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks -- around 4 percent of Wyoming. In the remaining 14 percent of the state, they would be hunted, trapped and snared, with the goal of reducing roughly 29 packs to around 10. 

Your urgent help is needed: Tell the White House to uphold protections for Wyoming's wolves until the state replaces its bloodlust with proper wolf management and respect.
