Subject: Tell Obama to Protect Wolves on National Forests
| Friend – It's outrageous! Under a new proposed plan in Wyoming, wolves on many of our National Forests could be shot on sight. |
Take action now! Tell President Obama and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack to take a stand against this indiscriminate killing on federal lands.
The Bridger-Teton National Forest in western Wyoming is wonderful wolf habitat. Wolf packs have roamed these public lands. Wolf pups have taken their first steps here.
But under a new plan proposed by the State of Wyoming, these magnificent animals could be shot on sight throughout the southern Bridger-Teton and other National Forests in Wyoming – preventing these magnificent animals from reoccupying their historic habitat here.
Tell President Obama and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack that these are our wolves and our public lands, and that we want to see wolves managed responsibly.
It's a simple idea: Responsible management of our wolves on our national forests.
But that's not what President Obama's Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, is supporting in Wyoming's wolf plan.
Instead, the Obama Administration is deferring to anti-wolf extremists and supporting a proposal that would allow wolves to be killed, by almost any means, on large tracts of prime wolf habitat in our National Forests.
The last time wolves were shot on sight in Wyoming – just one month in 2008 before Defenders and our allies stopped the practice in court – all 17 known wolves in these areas were killed.
Denning wolves, wolf pups… and the integrity of our National Forests are at risk.
Please take action now. Tell President Obama and Secretary Vilsack – who oversees the Forest Service – to draw a line in the sand and oppose the shoot-on-sight plan for wolves on our National Forests in Wyoming.
Our National Forests are meant for science-based, sustainable wildlife management… not animal elimination. Bridger-Teton and other national forests are owned by the public and provide irreplaceable habitat for wolves and other wildlife.
If we can't maintain wildlife on our National Forests, where can we maintain our natural treasures? What kind of public land legacy do we want to leave our children and future generations?
Help us reach our goal. Take action now and post this action on Facebook today.
