Will your tax dollars pay for an ill-conceived aerial wolf cull in Northeastern Idaho – an unscientific plan to boost game populations that could kill as many as two thirds of the wolves in the Lolo District of the Clearwater National Forest?
The Idaho Fish and Game Commission has asked federal officials at Wildlife Services to use helicopters, sharpshooters and your tax dollars to find, target and kill most of the wolves in this wild area of Idaho.
President Obama can save these wolves. He need only direct Wildlife Services to deny Idaho’s request.
The wolf killing could begin within days – on our National Forests and paid for with your tax dollars – so please send your message now.
When President Obama took office in 2009, he promised to put science first in the management of America’s wildlife and natural resources. Now he has a chance to do just that by rejecting Idaho’s request for federal resources to kill wolves.
The President need only recognize the importance of ensuring sustainable populations of these ecologically important and iconic animals and reject Idaho’s attempts to artificially boost game numbers.
If we’re going to stop this wasteful wolf cull, President Obama needs to hear from as many caring people as possible. Please send your message today and help us send at least 75,000 messages to the White House by the end of the week.
Defenders of Wildlife is calling on President Obama and his administration to deny Idaho’s request to have federal agents carry out aerial wolf killing in Idaho.
Join Defenders of Wildlife and sign their petition urging President Obama to direct Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack to deny Idaho’s request for federal resources to carry out the Lolo aerial wolf cull.
