Don’t Kill Female Grizzly Bears And Cubs to Save Livestock

Target: Aurelia Skipwith, Director of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Goal: Recant decision to kill up to 72 grizzly bears, including females and cubs.

Up to 72 threatened grizzly bears, including females and cubs, are soon to be killed in Wyoming’s Bridger-Teton National Forest with authorization from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. This decision comes in an effort to appease livestock owners who wish to use the area for grazing. Demand an immediate repeal of this critical decision.

“It’s outrageous that the feds are caving to the livestock industry by allowing dozens of grizzly bears to be killed in their crucial habitats on public lands. Yellowstone’s grizzly bears are a national treasure that should be protected, not slaughtered,” stated Andrea Santarsiere, a senior attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity. The agency is suing the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service for their recent decision to allow up to 72 grizzly bears to be killed near Yellowstone National Park over the 10-year life of the reauthorized grazing program. This order does not put limits on how many of those bears can be females or cubs, even though they reside in the area, and turns an important habitat into a warzone for this species.

Grizzly bears remain threatened under the Endangered Species Act and this blatant disregard for their wellbeing is unacceptable. Sign below and demand that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recant this fatal decision.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Director Skipwith,

Your recent authorization for the killing of up to 72 grizzly bears in Wyoming’s Bridger-Teton National Forest is one that could threaten the survival of this species. The order does not put a limit on how many of those bears can be females or cubs, both of which frequent the habitat in question.

Appeasing livestock owners is not a reason to cut short the life of this majestic species. There are effective ways that would keep all of the animals safe and jumping straight to execution is rash and unjust. I demand that you consider other options and give Yellowstone’s grizzly bears a fighting chance.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    “There are effective ways that would keep all of the animals safe and jumping straight to execution is rash and unjust.”
    What are those other effective ways, I wonder??? I’m ALL for NOT KILLING animals, if there are better ways to handle a problem – just curious.

  2. There are no words to describe the irrationality of this decision. There are other ways in which to deter the bears and they should be employed, whatever the cost. The gunhappy morons will be jumping with joy – they’re simply trophy hunters after all. A disgusting and disturbing decision that must be revoked immediately.

  3. J Stufflebeam says:

    The bears can be live trapped and moved to wilderness where they cannot harm domestic animals.

  4. Jacqui Skill says:

    FWS;DO YOUR JOB RIGHT FOR A CHANGE AND SAVE WILDLIFE INSTEAD OF KILLING THEM!

  5. Jaime Perez says:

    There has got to be a better solution to this deplorable plan. Moving the bears to a different location away from the livestock, which by the way are encroaching on the bears habitats, would be the best solution! The murder of innocent bears IS NOT a good idea!

  6. Evan Jane Kriss says:

    Director Skipwith: The American people are outraged by this! Use NON LETHAL CONTROL METHODS FIRST. FWS is a murder for hire group.

  7. The US Fish and Wildlife service have a disgraceful international reputation.They are known internationally for being uncaring about animals ,corrupt and lazy.This organisation must be shut down and another one established with educated animal welfare staff.These bears and their cubs can easily be relocated to a suitable wilderness area.
