GRAY WOLVES THREATENED AS THEIR ENDANGERED STATUS IS SET TO EXPIRE

WOLF PROTECTION ADVOCATES WORRY THAT OLD ATTITUDES WILL TAKE OVER ONCE THE GRAY WOLF IS DELISTED AND IT WILL BE OPEN SEASON ON THE INTELLIGENT, ADAPTABLE, AND HIGHLY MOBILE CREATURES

articwolf3.jpgSuzanne Stone, a wolf specialist at Defenders of Wildlife is concerned about the recently approved animal management plan that will allow Wyoming to do something that no other state in the Yellowstone region is allowed to do: to kill wolves at any time by any means across most of the state.

In other area states and in the northwest corner of Wyoming near Yellowstone, wolves will be classified as trophy game animals and may be killed only in strictly controlled numbers by licensed hunters.

However, in the 80 percent of Wyoming outside the Yellowstone area, wolves will be labeled predators, and there will be no quotas and no permits required to kill them. This means that any asshole with a weapon will be legally allowed to target the wolves.

Imagine if you will, a state full of Dick Cheney’s running around half- cocked and probably half-crocked as well, shooting every that moves and you will see why this delisting is a bad thing.

And this is supposed to be a Christian country, a place where people value life in all of it’s diversity and splendor.

What a crock that is.
