Idaho officials have announced they plan to allow hunters to target the 1,000 wolves in Idaho, shooting and killing up to 220 wolves during this hunting season alone.

In just a few days, more than four thousand — of an estimated 70,000 — wolf-killing permits have already been sold!

Seventy thousand permits to shoot and kill wolves in Idaho. Seventy thousand guns trained on the estimated 1,000 wolves in Idaho.

It’s unbelievable, but true. Unless they’re stopped, Idaho officials intend to sell as many as 70 wolf hunting permits for each one of these magnificent animals living in the Gem State. In just the first day the permits were on sale, the state sold thousands!

Please help me stop this slaughter by watching Defenders of Wildlife’s new video and sending an emergency message to President Barack Obama asking him to stop this devastating wolf hunt.

Idaho officials have announced they plan to allow hunters to target the 1,000 wolves in Idaho, shooting and killing up to 220 wolves during this hunting season alone. More than four thousand wolf-killing permits have already been sold — and the killing could begin next Tuesday!

Under Idaho’s wolf plan, more than 500 wolves could be killed over the next two years. But the true results of the state’s plans may be even worse.

Idaho’s legislature has said it wants to remove all wolves from the state “by whatever means necessary,” and Governor Butch Otter literally howled with delight when President Obama’s Interior Secretary Ken Salazar eliminated Endangered Species Act protections for wolves earlier this year and has promised to hunt wolves himself.

Unless we stop the hunt, hundreds of wolves could be killed, with orphaned wolf pups — unable to hunt for themselves — left to starve to death during the brutal winter months.

Please watch this new video and then urge President Obama to restore Endangered Species Act protections for gray wolves in Idaho and Montana.

The good people at Defenders of Wildlife are doing everything they can right now to ensure a lasting future for wolves in Idaho and the rest of the northern Rockies. I’m lending my voice to this fight, and I hope you will too.

Sincerely,

Ashley JuddP.S. We don’t have much time to save the lives of these wolves. Idaho’s wolf hunt is scheduled to begin next Tuesday! Please take action now…

 

P.P.S. Help us send 150,000 messages to President Obama. Please forward this message!
