Congressional efforts are now underway to reach a budget agreement to fund the government for the next year. Unfortunately, removing federal protections for wolves may very well be the price the Republican-led Congress demands to keep the government running after Dec. 11.
We need you to deliver an important message to Sen. Amy Klobuchar: Reject any budget deal that includes removing federal protections from wolves in Wyoming and the Great Lakes region.
If this policy rider is included, it will likely lead to a widespread wolf slaughter -- killing that could include more trophy hunts and cruel traps. We can't let such riders become law.
Deciding when to remove Endangered Species Act protections is not the role of politicians, and 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. During this critical time, it's essential that Sen. Klobuchar hears from you.
