Petition: Gray Wolves Need Protection for Their Survival

by: Kevin Mathews
recipient: Senate Energy & Natural Resources Chair Lisa Murkowski, and the U.S. Senate

82,001 SUPPORTERS – 85,000 GOAL

The House of Representatives passed a bill to remove protections from the gray wolf in the U.S, which would allow hunters and landowners to shoot the wolves at whim.

Before these protections were instituted, the gray wolf was nearly wiped out entirely in the same way. The measures taken have helped the wolves to rebound to over 5,000, which is still WAY under what the population used to be. Although they may not be considered “endangered” anymore, reviving hunting is a recipe for decimating the population all over again.

For that reason, we implore Republicans in the Senate to not allow this bill to become a law. Let’s continue to research the situation and perhaps ease certain protections as appropriate before inviting the gray wolves to be slaughtered out of existence.
