Gray wolves can now be heartlessly strangled and gunned down across Idaho and Montana.
Gray wolves are facing new threats to their survival in the Northern Rockies. They are being strangled by snares, run-down by ATVs, gunned down from helicopters, and killed in dens alongside their pups.
In an extreme act of cruelty, wolves are even being baited out of protected areas, just so they can be “legally” hunted and trapped.
This season alone, around 20% of the wolves from Yellowstone National Park have been killed by just a handful of hunters and trappers after the iconic animals crossed the invisible park borders into surrounding states. And that number of dead wolves is expected to climb as the year goes on.
Interior Secretary Deb Haaland must restore Endangered Species Act protections to gray wolves in the Northern Rockies to halt this senseless killing.
Secretary of Interior Deb Haaland
Please grant protections to gray wolves in the Northern Rockies
