America's gray wolves were rescued from the brink of extinction over 35 years ago when they gained federal protection under the Endangered Species Act. But these majestic animals have been under attack since April 2011, when President Obama removed them from the endangered species list and turned management over to state wildlife agencies.
By April 2015 over 3,600 wolves had been senselessly slaughtered by sport hunters and trappers in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Minnesota and Wisconsin. This "kill tally" does not include the scores of wolves slaughtered by federal and state predator control programs.
Predator Defense's film, "The Imperiled American Wolf," explains the reasons wolves cannot be successfully managed by state wildlife agencies: not only do their methods ignore the core biology of how wolves hunt and breed, but their funding depends on hunting and trapping fees. In fact, current wolf management may actually lead to wolves' demise. Predator Defense and this film make a bold call for federal relisting of these important apex predators as endangered species.
The war being waged against wolves is senseless and tragic, and it is up to all of us to speak out now on their behalf. Learn more on our website at http://predatordefense.org/wolves.htm.
