Would You Pay $19 To Kill a Wolf?

Would you Pay $19 To Kill a Wolf?

In Montana, 6000 people just did.

Montana’s general wolf season opened September 15th with much looser rules than in past years. Lower license fees, a five-wolf per person “bag limit” (disgraceful way to reference the killing of any living thing) and a longer season top the list of changes made for the 2012-2013 season. As of last week, an estimated 6,000 state residents purchased wolf licenses for just $19 apiece. Out-of-state licenses were dropped from $250 to $50.

National Parks Service estimates that wolf watchers bring $35M tourism dollars to the greater Yellowstone area annually.  The ecological value of the keystone species remains ignored, and now the economical benefit as well.

On June 7, 2013, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) officially announced its plan to strip Federal protections from nearly all gray wolves nationwide. The Endangered Species Act requires that species listing decisions are governed by the best available science. Unfortunately, it was with political and economic considerations at the helm that USFWS declared gray wolves as recovered.  USFWS ignores America’s support of wolf recovery and scientists with expertise in conservation biology who warn the delisting rule is premature.

Please watch and share Center for Biological Diversity.’s video, and #StandForWolves by opposing USFWS’s nationwide delisting plan.  You can take action online or in person:

  • Submit your comment online: You can find useful talking points and the comment to submission link HERE.
  • Join the WCC at the Center for Biological Diversity‘s DC Rally before the public hearing on the nationwide wolf delisting on September 30th.
  • WHERE: Department of Interior Headquarters, 1849 C St. NW, Washington, DC 20240
  • WHEN: Monday, Sept. 30 — the rally begins at 3:45 p.m., the hearing at 6 p.m.

Thank you!

    This is terrible. I can’t stand to hear things like this. I don’t see how people could just do something like that.
