Bush/Cheney Launch 11th-Hour Assault on Greater Yellowstone Wolves

Recommended Posts

It's an awful Halloween surprise.

Earlier this week, the Bush/Cheney Administration launched another

attack on wolves in Greater Yellowstone and the Northern

Rockies -- re-packaging a proposal that could lead to the killing

of as many as 1,000 of America's most important and iconic


Take action now. Tell the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that our

wolves deserve a lasting future in Greater Yellowstone and the

Northern Rockies. Take action online now at:


Following several bloody months of wolf killing in Wyoming, Idaho and

Montana, a federal court ruled earlier this year against an

earlier version of the Administration's proposal to remove

Endangered Species Act protections for the region's wolves. In

response, the Bush/Cheney Administration actually withdrew that

proposal just a few weeks ago.

But with the clock winding down on the Bush/Administration,

federal officials are launching a last-ditch attempt to

re-package and ram through a plan that could lead to the slaughter of

as many as two-thirds of the Greater Yellowstone and Northern Rockies

wolf population.

Don't let them get away with it. Urge federal officials to come

up with a responsible management plan that ensures a lasting future

for these majestic animals. Take action now:


Time and time again, Defenders of Wildlife has been at the forefront

of efforts to save wolves in Greater Yellowstone and the Northern

Rockies, fighting -- and winning -- in court, on the ground and in

Congress to ensure responsible, balanced management of our wolves.

In the last two years, caring people like you have sent tens of

thousands of messages, made thousands of calls, and donated to help us fight the Bush/Cheney Administration and their allies in court,

educate the public and support wolf-saving efforts in the field.

Help us safeguard wolves. Take action now:


Unfortunately, we don't have much time to stop this audacious

11th-hour sneak attack on our wolves. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife

Service is only accepting public comments until November 28th, so

please take action now.

For the Wild Ones,

Rodger Schlickeisen


Defenders of Wildlife

P.S. Over the next month, we need to generate thousands of public

comments on this outrageous plan. We need to mobilize conservation

activists to show up at public meetings and speak out. And we have to

prepare for what could be another long, difficult legal fight ahead.
