Idaho's death warrant for 450 wolves

An SOS for Idaho's wolves from Defenders of Wildlife:

Dear Virginia,
I am writing with sad news.
Despite heroic efforts by people like you, yesterday, Idaho’s governor signed a virtual death warrant for hundreds of the state’s wolves.
The new law, HB470, establishes a $400,000 special fund, the sole purpose of which is killing as many wolves as possible. It is part of a broader effort by wolf-haters to reduce Idaho’s wolf population down to 150 animals – which means killing more than 450 wolves.
We cannot leave any stone unturned in our fight to protect wolves.  
  • Our legal team is assessing options.
  • Our field staff is gearing up for the fight of their lives and are mobilizing other residents of Idaho to push back on this terrible proposal.
  • Here in Washington, D.C., we’re using this as Exhibit A with the Department of the Interior as proof of what we’ve been saying along – when wolves lose protection they die.
We’re not giving up. Not by a long shot.
