550 gray wolves have been reported killed by hunters and trappers in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming this season. If you add in the number of wolves killed by federal Wildlife Service agents (who kill wolves that threaten livestock), poachers, disease, and vehicle collisions, it starts to look like the return of the time honored American tradition of predator genocide. Hunting seasons have also begun in the Great Lakes Region, long a haven for our wild, four-legged kin.
Two such seasons have now passed since gray wolves had their protective status removed under the Endangered Species Act and its unclear how many more they will sustain.
The howls of the hunted carry in the wind and call for help. It is time for hunt saboteurs to rise up to defend the wolf family.
You can dismantle traps, dismantle hunting ORVs and trucks, dismantle the structures of hunting cabins, dismantle the helicopters used for aerial hunting. There are lots of great resources for ideas. Join the resistance. Defend the wolves.
Go with caution, go with love, go wild as hell!
