Don’t Hunt Grizzly Bears

Target: Mark Anselmi, President of the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission

Goal: Reverse decision to allow hunting of grizzly bears.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission unanimously voted to reinstate the hunting of grizzly bears, allowing as many as 22 bears to be killed in the Yellowstone area. The state of Wyoming considers the grizzly bear population to be recovered enough to take the animals off the endangered species list, along with allowing trophy hunting of the precious bears. The Sierra Club issued a statement calling the vote a “misguided proposal” that will undoubtedly reverse 40 years of population restoration efforts.

Populations of grizzlies were restored enough in 2016 that the US Fish and Wildlife Service declared they were ready to be taken off the endangered list, but many conservation groups said the move was premature. In 2017, just a year later, 11% of the grizzlies in Yellowstone died. Sign the petition below to send the message that we can’t afford to lose any more grizzlies.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Anselmi,

The state of Wyoming should be ashamed of how it has treated wildlife on a legislative level. Why is it that the first response to taking an animal off the endangered species is to allow trophy hunting of that same animal? There is no reason we should be opening up hunting season on a recently endangered species.

Grizzly populations are vital to keeping our ecosystem balanced, and without them, Wyoming and the United States wouldn’t have the same wildlife that makes these areas so uniquely important.We need to protect our animals, not hang them from our walls. We implore you to reverse the decision to reinstate hunting of grizzlies.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    PLEAE SAVE THE GRIZZLYES!!! What’s Yellowstone without bears?

  2. SAVE THE NATURE EARTH NEEDS NOW.

  3. Serial killers to animals. Hope all Poachers and Trophy Hunters burn in hell!

  4. We don’t need to kill animals for trophies OR meat. Our insistence that we need to eat meat is what allows these state agencies to continue killing off our wildlife. Grizzly bears (and other predators) are blamed for the eating fawns of the ungulate populations hunters like to kill, and also destroyed en masse for the ranchers who raise livestock. STOP eating meat; if you’re not vegan, you are perpetuating this war on wildlife. You can’t eat meat AND decry hunting–they are married at the hip.
