Those of us who have signed the online petition against the Federal Government’s proposed wolf extermination plan are sending the letter below to like-minded friends. Since the public comment period ends on August 6th and many more signatures are needed, it seemed most efficient to post the letter here.
The message below, a letter from Frances Beinecke urging concerned Americans to oppose the Bush Administration’s plan to exterminate wolves in the northern Rockies, was sent to you by http://www.nrdcactionfund.org
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 going to: www.nrdcactionfund.org/wolfaerial
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.
Please help block the License to Kill by expressing your personal opposition while the Bush Administration is still taking public input.
Submit your Official Citizen Comment now — and shield the wolves of Greater Yellowstone and Idaho from the coming crossfire — by going to: http://www.nrdcactionfund.org/wolfaerial
