Stop “Wildlife Services” From Cruelly Slaughtering Millions of Animals

Target: U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack 

Goal: Stop the unnecessary and sadistic persecution of predators, and implement humane solutions instead. 

Wildlife Services, a federal program managed by the USDA, has a vague and misleading title. The primary services they render include protecting farmers’ livestock from predators and airports from birds, and the former involves slaughtering millions of wild animals per year. The stated purpose of this agency is to promote the coexistence of wildlife and humans, however, its actions speak to the fact that it is solely serving the welfare of the members of the human population who see animals as a nuisance and lobby for their eradication.

According to the USDA, Wildlife Services spent $0 in 2020 on threatened and endangered species conservation. Currently, there is a full page on their website specifically dedicated to this endeavor, so one would assume that it is meant to be included in their budget and duties. In that same year, they killed 1.5 million wild animals. Based on these numbers, it’s easy to come to the conclusion that they are opting for the easy way out by killing animals rather than using more intelligent and creative solutions in order to foster a harmonious relationship.

Wildlife Services has repeatedly ignored requests for more transparency regarding their budget and how it is spent. Interestingly, the only expenditure available in WS’s Program Data Reports was the zero dollar amount listed above. What we do know is that they receive funding from both federal appropriations and cooperator-provided funds. This may lead one to wonder if the program is actually financially backed by members of industries who benefit from the elimination of certain predatory animals. It appears that Wildlife Services isn’t serving the wildlife at all and it is time for them to do the job they claim to and promote coexistence and conservation.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Secretary Vilsack,

We are making a call to action regarding the Wildlife Services Agency. The purpose of this organization, according to the USDA website, is to promote the successful coexistence of humans and wildlife. However, they killed 1.5 million wild animals in 2020 and, according to their own data, made zero efforts toward conservation. This information is just a sample of the evidence that their true focus is unevenly weighted to favor human interests.

It’s a fact that many wild animals can pose a danger to humans and their livelihood, but I think we can all agree that the number of animals that are destroyed is beyond excessive. We also take issue with the cruel and unnecessary methods used, namely the destruction of coyotes’ dens (252 in 2020) and the shooting of beavers (25,594 in 2020) rather than relocating them. It’s time to take a closer look at this agency and demand transparency in where their funding is coming from and who or what they are actually serving, because they are certainly doing a disservice to the wildlife of America.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. This is PURE EVIL!!!! STOP KILLING THESE ANIMALS!!!!

  2. Lawrence Holtzman says:

    Your job is to save our wild life, not kill them. What is wrong with you. Are the ranchers and farmers filling your pockets with so much money that you will not do what is right, SAVE!!!

  3. Stop murdering innocent defenceless beautiful animals they have the right to live there life… Has for th inhuman rejects that think its fun to murder animals they have blood on there hand innocent defenceless animals blood

  4. these animals were here before the ranchers. While I support hard working ranchers, perhaps they should bear the burden to protect their herds with their own guarding resources rather than just dumping them to survive. I am sure weather takes more than predators

  5. This is another animal agency that has lost its way! Killing is NOT the answer to everything yet that seems to be the Only thing these agencies do. Get new leadership! Stop the Massacre of wildlife and the accidental killing of other animals. Extinction is Not that far away for many. Man should be the Caretaker Not the TAKER!

    • I agree with you completely. These animals are being persecuted simply for existing! It is beyond sad. There are scientific ways to cut down on some of the over populated species such as birth control. For horses, wolves, deer, etc.
      The emphasis should not be all one sided as with ranchers or any other way of making a living.
      This planet is for all life to enjoy in peace…

  6. Barbara Garrison says:

    I knew people who worked for Wildlife Services. They are hate-filled morons who love to kill wildlife, that’s the truth. USDA is a corrupt agency that bends over for special interest groups, and all of the time, wildlife lose. I can’t stand them.

  7. Everyone should be made to watch ‘The return of The Predators to Yellowstone’. Yellowstone was a dying wilderness. Wolves, a keystone animal, was reintroduced and all is well again in Yellowstone. Farmers and ranchers who deal with animals all the time should know about such things. Stop killing just because you can.

  8. Veronica Figueiredo says:

    If your job is to create solutions for a harmonic interaction between humans and wild animals, WHY YOU JUST SLAUGHTER the wild life instead of finding solutions for this battle? DO YOUR JOB!!!

  9. Kelly Kramer says:

    The role of Wildlife Services w/i the US Interior Dept it to PROTECT INDIGENOUS WILDLIFE AND THE PUBLIC’S LAND! Wildlife Services is abusing their authority by massacring hordes of wildlife. I DEMAND THIS STOP NOW!

  10. Couldn’t agree with you guys more, why do wicked humans think it’s cool to kill wildlife – what the hell is wrong with them!!! … pure evil!.

  11. Seems the answer to every question and the solution to every
    problem in this world as far as ‘man’ is concerned is just to
    kill, kill kill. Can’t think of a solution ? Then just kill,
    kill kill. The majority of the grief in this world is caused
    by male humans because they enjoy killing so much. What a shame
    that we have to have so many evil scum in this world who love
    to kill so much.

  12. Stupid, ignorant, murdering sub human bastards. Unforgivable. Karma WILL come for you.

  13. THAT WILDLIFE FEDERAL SERVICES ARE MONSTERS AND KILLERS. DISMISS THEM ALL. PUT THEM IN JAIL FOR MAN MANY YEAS. NO MERCY. RITA FROM BELGIUM/EUROPE.

  14. “It’s man’s sympathy will all creature that FIRST makes him TRULY a MAN.
    – Albert Schweitzer

    Man up and protect these beautiful creations of God.

  15. As usual, their answer is to kill everything. Employees must be bloodthirsty horrible individuals!

    • Susan Chandler-Davis says:

      Perhaps ‘enjoy murdering wild animals? then this is the job for you’ !!! People who work for this agency must surely be sadistic ba***rds

  16. William Russell says:

    I thought at least government services would have compassion. It is a human thing – kill, kill, kill. What a bloody murdering species. I hope we fight this barbaric obscenity.

  17. Brian Duckworth says:

    Assholes in the government who hire other assholes to do their dirty work. This world needs a total reset, but sadly, that will also affect innocent animals.

  18. STOP KILLING ALL THESE INNOCENT ANIMALS!!! THESE IDIOTS ARE THE ONES WHOM ALL NEED TO BE KILLED & NOT ANIMALS!!

  19. Laurie Hernandez says:

    This USDA is a sham they are not doing what they were hired to do you are supposed to save wildlife NOT kill them at the least they people should be fired if not prosecuted for their actions shame on you all

  20. ALL ANIMALS MATTER. ALL SPECIES OF ANIMALS ARE VITALLY IMPORTANT TO OUR ECOSYSTEMS AND ENVIRONMENTS. THEY DESERVE AND WANT TO LIVE TOO. THESE ARE SENTIENT LIVING FEELING BEINGS THAT HAVE CLOSE FAMILY BONDS WITH ONE ANOTHER. STOP THE INSANITY. IT IS DISGRACEFUL AND UNCONSCIONABLE AND UNACCEPTABLE THAT THEY HAVE BEEN AND CONTINUE TO BE KILLED JUST FOR BEING WHO AND WHAT THEY ARE!
