Congressional efforts are now underway to remove federal protections from wolves in Wyoming, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan -- in direct contravention of two recent federal court orders as well as the Endangered Species Act.
Indeed H.R. 884 and H.R. 843 threaten to reopen the door to widespread slaughter of these intelligent, social animals -- killing that could include more trophy hunts and cruel traps. We can't let these bills pass.
Deciding when to remove Endangered Species Act protections is not the role of politicians, and so these bills would set a dangerous precedent and weaken this bedrock environmental law. Wolves would lose the Act's lifesaving protections for no reason other than being unpopular with special interests and extremists.
