        Wolves are Back in the Crosshairs and We're Howlin' Mad‏

        So we’re launching the Howlin’ Summer—because we’re howlin’ mad and we’re going to tell every important decision-maker that we will stand with the wolves.  

        Join us today in sending a message to Sally Jewell, the new Secretary of the Interior. Tell her the job of wolf recovery is not done. Not when wolves are only recovered in 5% of their historic habitat. She can prevent a new round of bloodshed by keeping wolves protected in states like Colorado, California, Utah and many others.  

        You can expect to hear from us every couple of weeks with a message to a new target who can help us prevent this nightmare for wolves from becoming a daily reality.  

        Join our pack and get ready to howl—we’ll be asking you to register your outrage through calls, protests, social media, public comments, and more—because America’s wolves deserve better.

          What other animal are we allowed to kill open season, shoot on sight, no bag limit, no license required?

            Ending War on Wildlife

            Every year literally hundreds of thousands of our nation's most majestic animals - including wolves, coyotes, grizzly bears and mountain lions- are poisoned, trapped and gunned down by the government. We're spreading the message that we need to co-exist, not kill these beautiful animals. We're asking Congress to defund and provide congressional oversight on this rogue agency.

            Few taxpayers realize that we help fund an agency called "Wildlife Services', a branch of the U.S. Department of Agriculture that wages a dirty war on America's wildlife. Between 2004 and 2011, Wildlife Services killed over 26 million animals purportedly to “protect” agribusiness or “bolster” hunting opportunities – a contention based on unsupported myths. The agency spends over $100 million each year on wildlife-killing actions.
            In FY 2010, Wildlife Services admitted it killed 5 million animals (but its numbers are suspect. In 2010, it belatedly claimed to have poisoned 4 million starlings, black birds, and others in 2009), including 112,781 mammalian carnivores such as coyotes, wolves, bobcats, cougars, badgers and bears.
