Target: Senator Tim Corder
Goal: Enforce stronger protection of wolves in Idaho after senseless slaughter of cubs.
Recently, a litter of wolf pups in Idaho were dragged from their den and killed. This is just one more stone in an already-overflowing bucket of toxic, anti-wolf culture permeating our society. These pups did nothing wrong and didn’t deserve to die.
The Center for Biological Diversity is offering a large cash reward for those who aid in the capture, apprehension, and conviction of the killers. But this is only one small step; greater steps need to be taken to protect the wolf population as a whole.
There is no reason given for the recent killings, but it can be safely assumed it was done for no reason other than for some hunters to prove how skilled and tough they are. Hunting for sport is cruel and should have been outlawed long ago, but wolves in particular are suffering from this practice. They are seen as trophies, beasts for hunters to conquer for the sake of bolstering their own pride.
Since the killing happened in Idaho, Idaho should be the first state urged to take action against another incident like this one. Too many wolves have been slain for the sake of bragging rights among sport hunters, and when innocent cubs are taken forcibly from their home and killed for the sake of it, things have gone much too far. Strong action needs to be taken. Sign this petition to help enforce a ban on any future slaughter of wolves and to protect Idaho’s wolf population.
Dear Senator Corder,
A litter of wolf cubs were dragged from their den and slaughtered in Idaho. This killing was senseless, lacking of valid reason, and cruel. While the arrest and conviction of the killers will be a victory, more needs to be done. Wolves need to be protected from hunters looking to fill another spot on their trophy case.
Idaho specifically needs to put a ban on the slaughter of these creatures after this horrifying incident. Please enforce a legal ban on acts of violence targeting wolves. The stigma against these creatures is bad enough, but the most recent act of violence against them was needless, cruel, and disgusting. Let the capture, apprehension, and conviction of the killers be the first step toward becoming a more wolf-friendly state.
