The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is in its comment period on their proposal to remove the wolf from the Endangered Species Act in the lower 48.  Hearings are being held throughout the country.  If you can go, please do.  If that’s not possible, please write or call.  They need to hear from people who want the wolf protected, not only from those who don’t.

AMENDMENT
Many thanks to my good friend, Carmen Mandel, for providing a DIRECT LINK to add your comments. Please add yours. There are almost 32,000 signatures, as I write this, but this figure falls a long way short of previous opportunities.
This is so important

  1. Thank you so much, Monica, for sharing, mentioning and for your kind words on Amelia’s blog!. This atrocity ought not to continue. I love your works and experiences with Wolf. I am reading your book now, a precious tribute.

    When it concerns the Wolf, we must become the Wolf !!!

      What a lovely idea, Kenny – devoted, loyal, focused, unswerving. That’s what I want to be. Not to mention sleek and beautiful, but that’s another story.

  3. I didn’t know wolf hunting was allowed. Is there a reason behind it? Overcrowding perhaps? I’m just a little confused. I can see euthanizing a badly injured wolf or something, but I thought we brought them back for a reason.

    Hope you’ll join us for NaNo. We need 16 more writers still! :)

      Hello Andrea, Most people don’t know about wolf hunting. I’m not sure it could continue if more did know. About two years ago, Congress, in another budget crisis, agreed to remove wolves in Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming from the protections of the Endangered Species Act. Those states were permitted to propose regulations for wolf hunting which could then be approved as a “management plan” by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Those states’ plans have been approved, and hunting has been ongoing. Most of the wolf population in this country is – or was – found in those three states. Stated goals are to reduce the wolf population from a high of approximately 1700 wolves when hunting began, to about 100 in each state. And they are well on the way; they’re almost there! This will continue unless those who oppose it speak up and keep speaking up. Thanks, Andrea, for your interest and concern. I thought we brought wolves back for a reason, too!

      Dear Pen, The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service hearing will be held here next Tuesday. I am looking forward to it as the least I can do. To what effect, no one knows. We will look them in the eyes and speak our piece – or is it peace? I wish it could be peace. Thanks for your beautiful support of WOLF. They need and appreciate it so much.
