This just in from the National Resources Defense Council. Please read, please participate, and for more information on the wonderful work that NRDC does, click here.
The Bush Administration has just issued a disastrous "License to Kill" plan that could trigger the extermination of half the gray wolves in Wyoming and Idaho, starting as early as October -- unless we stop it now.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is accepting public comments on this cruel proposal only until August 6. Please register your opposition right now by clicking here.
Our best hope for blocking this "open fire" order is to generate a tidal wave of public outrage and protest...so please sign your Citizen Comment immediately.
The Bush Administration wants to treat wolves like vermin, instead of an endangered species that has staged a welcome and dramatic comeback from the brink of extinction. In preparation for these mass killings, the government has already purchased planes and helicopters capable of gunning down entire packs of wolves in minutes.
Their goal: To immediately kill up to 700 wolves in Greater Yellowstone and central Idaho.
Our goal: To stop this horrific proposal in its tracks -- by generating 200,000 pro-wolf Citizen Comments by the August 6 deadline.
