Federal Plan Poised to Allow Landowners to Kill Endangered Red Wolves – Last Day to Take Action
This red wolf pup was born into a world that currently has only one place for them in the wild.
Today, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) seeks to take that place away.
On June 28, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) announced it’s proposal that could result with the extinction of the last wild red wolves. Today, fewer than 30 wolves remain in the wild.
Beyond reducing the red wolf recovery area by nearly 90% and limiting the wild population to just 10-15 wolves, USFWS, the very agency charged by federal law with protecting endangered species, will allow landowners to kill red wolves who stray beyond the newly-designated recovery area – and without any repercussions.
