Stop Brutal Slaughter of Endangered Gray Wolves

Grey_Wolf_by_USFWS

Target: Washington Governor Jay Inslee

Goal: Cancel plans to exterminate a pack of 11 endangered gray wolves.

A pack of 11 endangered gray wolves is slated for extermination simply for behaving as nature intended. Washington state wildlife officials have received authorization to kill these vulnerable animals after complaints that they have been preying on local cattle.

Washington state contains only 19 confirmed gray wolf packs, with 90 wolves in total roaming the area. Killing these endangered animals would reduce the already fragile population by over 12 percent and severely hinder the wolves’ ability to stave off extinction and replenish their dangerously low numbers.

Officials first targeted the wolves when dead cows and calves started to turn up in Ferry County, which is home to a pack consisting of six adults and five cubs. A course of “lethal removal action” was agreed upon after only seven calves were found dead or injured, according to reports.

If Washington truly wants gray wolves to thrive, state authorities must devise a more complex plan than simply killing them when they become a nuisance. Sign the petition below and demand that these wolves be spared from a needless death.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Governor Inslee,

I am writing to express my grave concern over the impending massacre of a gray wolf pack in Ferry County. Comprised of 11 wolves (six adults and five cubs), the pack is slated to be killed because of their repeated attacks on local livestock.

While I appreciate the need to protect farmers’ interests, an endangered animal should not be exterminated for acting as nature intended. These creatures are hunters, and are finding food the only way they know how. Wiping out over 12 percent of the wolves’ population simply because they are a nuisance is barbaric. Please devise a more humane solution and spare these animals from a needless death.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  5. Apologies if I have previously signed which I feel I may have done but no apologies for asking you to stop all this indiscriminate killing and culling of America’s wildlife. It’s how you started out – by hunting down and destroying the buffalo herds and it seems you have not learned a damned thing since. All you seem to do is kill and clear for farmers, ranchers and those who want barbed wire surrounds and not a wild animal in sight. God Help America. This lot, here in England are up to the same capers. Killing for cattle. Vaccinate the beasts and leave the wildlife alone. As for the States, a little electric fencing, not too great a shock, but enough to deter, should do the trick. That’s what farmers do in South Africa when they want to protect cattle and wildlife simultaneously. They call it respect for nature and what she gave us – and indeed, for what she knows.
