On October 1, 2012 it became legal to shoot, trap and gas Wyoming’s 328 wolves throughout most of the state. Since then, nearly 80 wolves have been killed in Wyoming.
Tell Wyoming Governor Matt Mead to put a stop to the slaughter of gray wolves, and end the brutal extermination policy taking place in nearly 85 percent of the state.
Earthjustice is fighting in court to protect wolves from this unchecked slaughter, but we need your help to put additional pressure on the state.
The gray wolf used to be found throughout the United States, but centuries of trapping, hunting, and poisoning nearly decimated the population. The federal government has spent 17 years and millions of dollars to restore wolves to the West.
Wyoming’s new law threatens the wolf recovery that is under way—and even includes a dangerous loophole that would make it legal to kill wolves no matter how few remain.
Earthjustice has used the power of the law to successfully shut down wolf hunts in the Northern Rockies twice before, and with your help we are fighting to do so once again. Help us keep the pressure up!
Ask Governor Mead to stop the slaughter, and put policies in place to ensure the survival of wolves now and for future generations.
