In just two days, state officials in Idaho will begin selling some 70,000 permits to shoot and kill up to 220 of 1,000 wolves living in Idaho.
DANGER >>> So in two days, the great citizens of Idaho will have between 70 to 318 yahoos tracking, bow hunting, shooting and gassing the lairs of the remaining wolves living in Idaho. <<< DANGER
Unless we stop them, hundreds of defenseless wolves will be killed. Orphaned wolf pups that are unable to hunt for themselves will be left to starve to death during the brutal winter months. Some will be killed with poison gas or bait.
More than 500 wolves could be killed over the next two years under the state’s wolf plan.But the true results of the state’s plans may be even worse, leading to mass death for Idaho’s wolves, including those leaving the safety of Yellowstone National Park:
- When wolf parents are shot during the fall, some pups will be too young to feed themselves and will likely starve to death -- assuming those pups are not shot themselves.
- Idaho Fish & Game estimates that it will issue an estimated 70,000 permits to hunt and kill up to 220 wolves, even though there are only about 1,000 wolves in the entire state of Idaho!
- The state legislature has declared that it wants to remove all wolves from the state “by whatever means necessary.”
- Governor Butch Otter has declared he wants to be the first one to buy a ticket to shoot a wolf. He literally howled with delight when Interior Secretary Ken Salazar eliminated Endangered Species Act protections for wolves.
Unbelievably, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar decided to adopt the discredited and illegal path charted by the Bush administration and strip wolves in the Northern Rockies of vital federal protections -- a decision Defenders of Wildlife is now challenging in federal court.
