Stand up and fight for wolf conservation!

Well folks, it’s time to stand and howl for what is right. This is our one opportunity to tell the Fish and Wildlife Service in person not to strip most gray wolves of their federal protection in the lower 48 states. And it’s a chance for wolf supporters to make their voices heard across the west. Join Defenders for our pre-hearing events where you will have the opportunity to get the latest information, meet other wolf enthusiasts and rally for wolves before heading to the FWS public hearings. So let’s tell the FWS that it’s time to make sure wolves are recovered, not abandon ship midstream.

 

Denver, Colorado – The first hearing will be in Denver on Tuesday, November 19 at the Paramount Theatre. To ensure that the pro-wolf voice is heard, Defenders is working with our conservation partners to organize a training and rally at the Crowne Plaza Hotel prior to the hearing. Coloradans have such an important stake in wolf recovery and Defenders wants to empower our supporters to make their voices heard!

At the pre-hearing event at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Defenders staff will give a presentation about what to expect at the hearing and provide tips on how to deliver effective testimony. We will conclude with an indoor rally with motivating speakers and wolf experts. There will also be refreshments, materials to make posters, a kids’ activity corner, and a chance to meet other wolf advocates.

After the rally, we will walk two short blocks to the official public hearing and ask that FWS finish the job on wolf recovery.

    Our wolves need saving. It’s so sad that so many people have no idea of what wolves do to bring forth healthy and well balanced ecosystems or that they tend to kill the elder and diseased, leaving a healthier herd. Its sad to see that our government, beginning with President Bush, is on the side of the wealthy and not making decisions based on scientific fact. May God forgive those who are trying to hunt wolves back into extinction~

    I won’t be able to attend any hearings or conferences in person but I feel passionate and anxious to say a few things. The idea that we as a human race thing we have the right to kill an entire group of animals is so absurd, so insanely reminiscent of the old west, slaughtering millions of buffo, that I feel a sickness inside me. The fact that we, the people who think solely about ourselves see no problem with killing an entire group of animals is not only ignorant but frustrating. There is an obvious balance in this planet that humans seem to always ignore. To think a group of animals is the cause of personal problem people face and to think that if all the wolves are gone will fix it just reaffirms how unintelligent most conservatives are. Wolves are important to the ecosystem, for our knowledge in scientific studies and for the pure sense they evolved to survive. Guns were invented by a species that is so selfish they destroyed things over and over and over again with those weapons. Think of the history of this country and how much is utterly lost and destroyed not because of wolves,
    Buffalo or anything but because of humans. I am tired of this waste. Stand tall and consider the balance we all can attribute to our happiness. Don’t think animals don’t play a part in every single thing in this world. Because they do.

    Wild animals’ lives are just as precious to them as our life is to us. They are simply wild dogs. Why do we hate and fear them so? Why do we feel the need to control, conquer and exterminate? What gives us that right? They are valuable, a part of our heritage. They belong on this planet as much (or more!) than we do. And, the more we meddle, the more we screw up the delicate balance of nature. We’ll be overrun with prey animals: rodents etc. It will backfire in the end.

    I believe and know the wolf is a very sacred animal, and should and need to be protected at all costs. The heart, soul and life of these animals are so very important, priceless and precious, just as our own. They are very beautiful, smart and intelligent, and that is more than what I can say for most of the human kind. You can see the deep love in their beautiful eyes and, feel it in their tender heart and loving soul, the desperate need for survival.
    They belong here as surely as any tree, mountain, of river. Their howls in the forever wind will tell the story of man ……… of their deep suffering and, a hatred from man they could never understand.
    I also believe that if someone really has the need to shoot something ……… “USE A CAMERA” !!!! Don’t take away and destroy the beauty we posses, and that which GOD has given, from the future generation. What would be left for our children, and their children to come? Must they see the beauty of these precious animals through a museum and history books in school? No, I don’t think so. So Please please please put the protection back on our wolves and STOP the wolf hunt’s.

    Wolves need protection, wolf numbers are still significantly low and they’re being attacked from all sides–politically, from farmers, ranchers, hunters–they are part of the ecosystem and nature and should be left alone and not annihilated like they are being now!

    I’m so very glad the wolves and other “four-leggeds” yet have the ability to flee and hide. As my people once were “free”, essentially they (four-legged s) still are. There is much land where at least some living beings should be allowed to live as they always have….free. But, as the Eagles observed in one of their songs maybe “freedom is just some people talking”. My Cheyenne and Arapaho people, as well as other tribes, knew what true freedom was many years ago. Just because one culture does not think and act like another culture it does not give culture the right to destroy the other…human or four-legged. Religion ( & money) has been the bases for the destruction of many cultures, resources and lands in this world. Hope more people open their Spirits to what Maheo’/Creator is trying to teach us with the wolves. Their Spirits know only freedom and it is that which cannot be controlled/destroyed with out killing them….as it is yet with my people, we are Related. Peace.

    Wolves are an important part of the cycle of nature. Killing them will effect all the other species in the area. They accomplish much good in keeping many other animals in check, which avoids overgrazing and loss of grazing areas.
    There is no natural justification to kill off the few wolves we have.

    Whats its going to take!! From some research I’ve done one of the main reasons these wolves are killed is due to the hunters don’t want to compete with the wolves. Wolves eat caribou, man hunts caribou. The hunters feel the wolves are taking away from their hunting opportunities.. which is totally bs! Because there are plenty of caribou to go around. If mankind would stop infringing on the wilderness where these American icons live, they wouldn’t bother livestock either. Wolves have the right to exist freely and without being murdered! Man was not put on this earth to extinguish living things because he felt they got in the way. Mankind has gotten in the way of nature.

    I really wish I could go and be there to voice my words. But delist the grey wolf. This will be a very costly mistake. Doing this will only show people like me that our counties government dose not care about wildlife and the ecosystems. Do this gives into the farmers and Ranchers traps. Meaning that these people will have free rain in deal with wolf’s anyway they want to. You might think that you will still have control but it will only be a dream and nothing more then a dream. The simple reason is it is not wolf’s that are going into there land it is the other way around man is going and build in place were man should not and you are trespassing in there land. Just like white man did to the Native American tribes so long ago. You are still doing it now. Delisting the grey wolf will put a open season on wolf’s just like it did hundreds of years ago when white man almost put them on the extinction list. You can say well we are taking steps in making sure that will never happen again. Sorry but were things are going now and how I see humans now there is not difference and history has a way of repeating itself. How long before the Mexican wolf ends up dying out. It shows how in actions that our Fish and Wildlife Service and government are taking in protecting them. Nothing is being done to protect them and if you say you are taking steps. Well I can say it is piss poor steps in how the breeding Female got killed and other things that have happened. Time for a wake up call. Because Teddy Roosevelt would be pissed if he was standing here.

    This needs to be stopped, these beautiful animals need to be protected. They hunt for survival in their packs, much like humans do to provide for their families, if we stop moving into their territories they won’t feel threatened, they won’t harm anyone and they can be at peace and provide for the packs. Leave them alone, stop building homes in the woodlands, and for those that do, you should expect to see wildlife around your home, you built your house in their back yard how dare you invade the homes of wolves and other wild life and expect them to go away, or not to protect their pack and defend themselves. I vote and howl to protect these beautiful majestic creatures. Who we could all learn from, watch some documentaries people and you will be amazed and you will see how important these wolves are to keep the balance.

    Some people believe that only species useful to man should be preserved. For people who view nature this way, wolf actions beneficial to humans can be used as rationales to preserve the wolf.

    Like dogs, wolf packs need to be regularly taught the boundaries of acceptable and unacceptable behavior around humans, pets and livestock. Thus, the naive view that wolves don’t ever need to be controlled is clearly wrong. However, even more incorrect is the view that all or most wolves in an area should be exterminated. Communities that exterminate wolves lose the important contributions that these predators make to economics, public safety and public health.

    The value of wolves has been assessed entirely from a human perspective. However, to be fair, we must also look at wolves from other viewpoints.

    Many critics argue that it is wrong to judge wildlife simply in terms of whether or not they are useful to man and fit into the human agenda. They point out that what is useful and valuable to humans often changes with time. Therefore, if we base preservation of other species on the shifting sands of human desires and interests, nothing in nature will ever be safe and our attempts to save endangered species will ultimately fail.

    Wolves and other predators are sooo important to our chain of life. It’s not just for their beauty we need to save them. Predators multiply at a much slower rate than their prey: rabbits and rodents multiply at an astonishing rate when not checked. They demolish vegetation and eat crops and when not enough predators around wreak havoc with the ecology and farmers. Wolves are truly the farmers friends and it is so sad that this is not commonly understood.

    I hope my voice will be heard loud and clear: Stop The Wolf Hunt! The Wolf Hunt is not based on science. The wolf hunt is based on hunters wanting to hunt down Elk. Elk are the natural food source for wolves! Wolves have a right to exist. Why should one species have more rights than another? Elk populations are recorded every year in most states. Elk hunters have killed record numbers of elk. Look in the newspaper not in hunting magazines. Wolf hunters use the most savage means possible to kill wolves. Wolves are left in traps and snares for long periods of time, tortured, and then killed. Wolves are run down over miles after miles by snow mobiles, shoot shovel shut up sound familiar? Humans do not eat wolf meat but hundreds are killed each year. Beheaded wolves are strung up on fences! When will the brutality end? Check out the horrible pictures on Facebook. It disgusting what our government has done to wolves! Stop the Wolf Hunt! I wish I could be in attendance. I live in New York State, we have no wolves here. I see wolves in a tiny enclosure in a zoo. That will happen if nothing is done to stop the wolf hunt. Wolves will only be in zoos or in sanctuaries. Behring bars for their own safety.

    These beautiful animals need our protection. We have lost so many animals already due to poaching, hunting for sport, and what ever else has been done to hurt animals. It is just not right that so many of our animals are at the brink of extinction, do we really want to add 1 more. I think wolves are such beautiful animals and it seems all people want to do is kill them. Farmers need to do something as well. they need to put safeguards in to protect their livestock. It’s just not right to delist these animals. Let’s start protecting and stop killing our animals. When the next generation of kids grow up they will never get to experience the beautiful animals we have seen. It will eventually become a country without wild animals. Maybe this is what some people want, but I surely don’t’, I love all animals and think they are all beautiful in their own way. Please don’t delist the wold.

    There is a natural order to this world and the Wolf is an integral part of that order. They were placed on this earth for a reason by a power greater than ourselves. Now that we ( humans) have already messed with the lands, the animals and everything else,that the wolf needs to survive, causing it to be forced to survive any way it can, we want to get rid of it because we are scared of it. When someone or something threatens us, don’t we defend ourselves. We protect people who are weak and can’t speak for themselves, why not animals..

    When will we humans understand that the wolf is essential to a healthy and balanced environment? God created the wolf for a reason, and humans, who believe they know more than God, have succeeded in nearly wiping out these magnificent creatures because of ignorance and unfounded fear. Their intelligence and loyalty to family is legendary. Our government is currently trying to revert back to the stupidity of the 1900’s by delisting the wolf and supporting wolf hunts to protect the hunting community and ranchers who want things to return to the “good old days” when the top predator was not around. The wolf was revered by the native Americans who knew how important it was to preserve the balance of nature, something modern man has forgotten. Stop the killing.

    Wolves are to be protected.

    They have given us so much. Wolves gave us dogs and we need to respect that. They gave us thousands of years of happiness with our dogs. Dogs are descendants of the wolf and are loving, kind, and friendly. We owe them so much and I believe that they should be granted the utmost respect.

    They can offer you love and a wonderful family if you just gave them the chance and take the proper steps. They have so much more to offer. Save our wolves.

    For those who are still wondering why to help our wolves.

    Wolves at least offer you something and some interest. They are beautiful creatures just as important as any other.

    Even more so.
    They keep our forests from being eaten up. Deer, Elk, and Moose and other plant eaters all eat up that beauty. Wolves keep the perfect balance in the animal kingdom.

    Wolves are in the top 5 of the most beautiful creatures out there.

    They can be friendly. There have been incidences where people have run into a wolf pack and instead of being attacked, they were greeted with nuzzling, licking and playfulness. 🙂

    Here are links to prove it:

    Wolves have evolved over millions of years, they are valuable in maintaining balanced ecosystems. They have a right to be protected. What right do we have to snuff them out?

    when my sister was 9 years old she became lost in the allegheny mountains in Pensylvania. After she was found, she said she saw a lot of “dogs” that stayed with her until she found a road and was picked up by a passing car. We believe the dogs were wolves and were protecting her. she was not frightened of them. we need to protect these beautiful animals.

    Wolves have the right to live in this planet just as much as we and any other creature do , we must save the wolves , if we don’t do this we’ll be killing ourselves .No other creature in this planet is greedy like human beings , no other creature kills for fun and profit like we do , wolves are not dangerous they are just wolves , we are dangerous oh yes .
