USA: Wolves – NOT The Bad Boys That Sports Hunters Want You To Believe !!



DoW March 2015

The following video is nothing directly to do with the information supplied below by Defenders of Wildlife; but we feel that this is an ideal situation to show people what the reality of the wolf is. 

This makes the message from Jamie about what is currently happening all the more disgusting and infuriating for us. 

As Jamie says – killing these magnificent animals for the joys of sport hunters and outfitters.  We ask; what then hell are these people about ? – taking such magnificent lives for what ? – to attempt to show that they are men in camo trousers  !!!

Please watch the following video and learn the real side of wolves; it might not be what the hunters have taught you to believe !! – a wonderful insight into the reality of the caring wolf pack and wonderful people who have devoted their lives to defending them – watch by clicking on the following link:

The message from Jamie at DoW is as follows; please take action yourself to protect these magnificent animals; pert of the real wildlife of the USA.

We ourselves are in England UK; but we will do everything we can to speak out in support of the beautiful wildlife that America should be so proud to have; and should be encouraging, not killing in the name of ‘sports hunting’.


Dear Mark,

The 19 wolves that were recently shot in Idaho were killed at the request of the state and carried out by federal sharpshooters, flying over national forest land.

The goal: to artificially boost elk numbers for sport hunters and outfitters.

The deeply disturbing actions by the Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services agency working on behalf of the state of Idaho must stop.

Tell Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack to order his employees to stop killing wolves on U.S. Forest Service lands just to inflate elk numbers!

Wildlife Services has received hundreds of thousands of dollars from Idaho Governor Butch Otter’s Wolf Depredation Control Board to help carry out the state’s relentless wolf killing program.

Aerial gunning of wildlife for sport is wrong on many levels, which is why it has been banned by statute in the United States for decades. And while government agents may be exempted from the provisions of that law, shooting wolves from the air is terribly offensive and wrong, regardless of who is pulling the trigger.

It is simply shocking for Secretary Vilsack to allow his employees to contract themselves out as sharpshooters to kill wolves from the air, especially on Forest Service lands. It is equally shocking for the Forest Service, which is also under the control of Secretary Vilsack, to stand by and allow their Wildlife Service colleagues to kill wolves on our national forest lands.

Defenders is the only national organization with staff on the ground in Idaho who not only worked to help restore wolves, but who are actively working at the statehouse and state wildlife commission to protect the fragile wolf recovery in the Northern Rockies.

Tell Secretary Vilsack: Healthy national forest landscapes need healthy populations of wolves. No more aerial gunning of wolves in our national forests!

Thanks for standing with us to protect wolves and other imperiled wildlife.

Australia: Big Live Exports Demo Sunday 22nd March – Can You Do It ?



stop live exports aus

Dear Mark

This government has shown that it not only supports the unethical live animal export trade, it is also hell-bent on increasing it and opening up any new markets it can, even if it means taking the already inadequate welfare guidelines that offer some protection, and altering or eradicating them to suit new markets that don’t want to be dictated to.

This is despite ongoing breaches being exposed on at least a monthly basis, and despite the fact that every single animal protection organisation worldwide agrees that live animal exports are inherently cruel and cannot be done humanely.

They have even refused to halt live cattle exports to Vietnam despite recent concerns by industry itself that horrific acts of cruelty are commonplace in Vietnamese abattoirs and fears that supply chains can’t be guaranteed.

Please join us in being a voice for those who can’t speak – we want a HUGE visual presence this year – we will have banners, placards, flyers and stickers – come and be a part of the Stop Live Exports contingent as we march through the streets in a show of opposition to this current governments stance on live exports. Wear your t shirt if you have one.

Melissa Parke, ALP Federal MP for Fremantle and Greens Senator Scott Ludlam are amongst the scheduled speakers.


Stirling Gardens, cnr Barrack St and St Georges Terrace, Perth from midday, Sunday 22 March.

Hope to see you there!

Campaign Manager

SAV Comment – Sorry Katrina; too far for us to get to from England, UK, but we are there with you in spirit fighting hard to stop live exports.
