Wolves and humans have been historically at odds in the United States — so much so that the northern gray wolf was basically hunted to the brink of extinction in the continental states. So it’s pretty miraculous that, against all odds, gray wolf populations have begun to bounce back. That being said, they are nowhere near stable and still require a great deal of support from scientists, conservationists, and activists. That’s why it’s so heartbreaking that the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), a government agency tasked with the stewardship of these wild wolves, decided to gun one down in cold blood — leaving her two family members alone. Sign to demand an end to this wolf killing!
When reports came in that a wolf pack had attacked livestock in the area where they roam WDFW put a hit out on one of the wolves. They didn’t even care which one, they just wanted a dead wolf to appease local ranchers. But there are so many ways to maintain balance between wolves, people, and other animals, and lethal methods are not only brutal — they have proven to be ineffective in the long run! Please sign on to condemn WDFW’s shortsighted cruel choice to kill this female wolf and leave her pack with only two members
