USA: Delisting Paves the Way for Almost 1000 Wolves to be Killed Under Deadly State Management Plans in Idaho and Montana














Dear XxXx,

This is a stunning development, just six weeks into the Obama Administration. This delisting paves the way for almost 1000 wolves to be killed under deadly state management plans in Idaho and Montana.
The killing could begin in just weeks.

I have some terrible news. Today, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced that he would follow the discredited path of the Bush Administration and delist wolves in the Northern Rockies and Greater Yellowstone region.


As I write this, we are already preparing an emergency legal challenge to this harmful proposal — and we’ll be in court as quickly as possible. But we need your help for the legal fight ahead.Please make an emergency donation now to support our Northern Rockies and Greater Yellowstone Wolf Legal Defense Fund.


This delisting will put the fate of our wolves in the hands of state governments that want to slaughter nearly 1,000 wolves. Last year, when federal wolf protections were temporarily lifted in the region, more than 100 wolves were killed in just a short time — including the world renowned “Limpy.”

We can’t allow the out-of-control killing of wolves to happen again.Please donate now to support our emergency legal challenge to protect our wolves in the Northern Rockies.

In addition, regular wolf hunting seasons could begin as early as this fall in Idaho and Montana — and Idaho Governor “Butch” Otter said again today that he still wants the first available hunting tag to shoot a wolf himself.


For more than 35 years, Defenders of Wildlife has fought for our wolves. We were there when the first wolves were reintroduced into Yellowstone National Park and we’ve been there to defend them ever since. We’ve beaten back efforts to prematurely delist these wolves in the past, and I’m confident we can do so again.

Just this week, we celebrated a hard-fought victory made possible with your help as the Senate voted to overturn the Bush Administration’s last-minute gutting of the Endangered Species Act. We now need to beat back another deadly Bush-era plan that will open the door to the slaughter of nearly 1,000 wolves.

Please donate what you can today to save the lives of wolves in the Northern Rockies and Greater Yellowstone.

Together, we can win our legal challenge of the same bad plan originally put forth in the last throes of the Bush Administration — and ensure that our wolves will continue to be around for future generations.

Global: Help to Persuade the United Nations Organisation to Adopt an International Declaration on the Welfare of Animals!



Online-Petition (WSPA): Help to persuade the United Nations Organisation to adopt an international declaration on the welfare of animals!





Being a member of the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA), FOUR PAWS takes part in the greatest animal welfare petition that has ever been started:


“Animals matter to me!” – Click here to sign the petition!


The petition aims to persuade the United Nations to adopt an animal welfare declaration.

This declaration intends to adopt animals as sentient beings – able to suffer pain and distress.

susiWorldwide billions of animals are abused to an unprecedented degree. Long-running transports, intensive mass animal farming, facilities to kill stray animals or animal testing laboratories – everywhere animals are treated with brutality and ruthlessness as if they were objects. 


Until now there are no national or international protection measures for abused animals.


For the predominant majority not even the most basic needs are granted.


Are animals merely manufacturing units or respected as sentient beings? It is in your hand.


WSPA needs 10,000,000 signatures with this petition. We will keep you updated and hand over the signatures to the initiators!

Serbia: The Story of ‘Himel’ – Saved by EPAR Shelter

The Story of ‘Himel’


Slavica has sent us the story of ‘Himel’.


This little dog was named Himel because the owner of a private company named ‘HIMEL’, near to Subotica, telephoned Slavica on the 27th February saying that there was a stray dog which had been in a field near to his company for many days.




The Company Sign – HIMEL D.O.O.

himel21A Dog is reported in the field – you can just see him at the centre of the photograph.

Slavica was asked if she wanted to come and take the dog, otherwise the company owner was going to call the local Shinters who would take him away and kill him.

Of course Slavica would come and take the dog !



And so the little dog was collected from the field; he was alone and without any hope.  He was an old dog but very sweet. 


And so it was decided that he should be called ‘Himel’ after the company that telephoned about him.


In the last photograph you can see Himel arriving at the EPAR shelter; finally in safe hands and away from the cold, barren field where he lived for many days.




Another rescue by EPAR Shelter – Himel is safe !
