Congress has resurfaced an old vendetta against imperiled wolves.
A dangerous bill is moving forward in this Congress (H.R. 424)—a bill we’re calling the “War on Wolves Act.” This damaging legislation would strip federal protections from wolves in four states and allow them to be trophy hunted, trapped and otherwise killed.
Please take just a minute to call your U.S. representative and tell him/her that you oppose H.R. 424 the War on Wolves Act!
If anti-wolf members of Congress get their way, the result will be more dead wolves and a blow to the Endangered Species Act, our nation’s safety net for imperiled species.
Together we must stand up for wolves and the law that helped bring them back from the brink of extinction—the Endangered Species Act.
When you call, you don’t need to say a lot—just tell them your name, where you’re calling from, and this main message:
Hello. My name is [Full Name] from [City and State] and I urge Representative ____ to oppose H.R. 424, the “War On Wolves Act.”
This damaging bill would strip Endangered Species Act protections for wolves in Wyoming, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin, and allow for trophy hunting and other killing of wolves in those states.
Further, this legislation would block the right of citizens to challenge these lethal programs in court.
I urge Representative ____ to stand up for wolves and the Endangered Species Act by OPPOSING the War on Wolves Act (H.R. 424).
NOTE: Some offices have been getting so many calls, so if you receive a busy signal please consider calling back later. In the meantime, if you haven’t already you can send your legislators a message: stand strong against any proposal to tamper with the Endangered Species Act.
