Wolf-haters in Montana have introduced a bill to legalize a long list of deplorable acts. This bill, SB 397 would:

•Allow wolves to be choked to death in neck snares, killed in traps and hunted for 10 months of the year, including during breeding, pregnancy, denning and pup-rearing seasons;

•Make it legal to lure wolves into traps using dead wolves - including dead pack and family members; and

•Allow an unlimited amount of wolves to be killed in a given season.

If this bill passes, it will be legal in Montana to use snares to choke a wolf to death and then leave its body out as bait to try to kill more wolves in its pack.

You have to ask -- Who does that?

The Montana assault on wolves is not an isolated incident. It is only one facet of a well-funded, highly-coordinated and unrelenting effort by wolf-haters to significantly reduce the number of wolves and strip federal protection from most of them in the lower 48 states.

Just last week, anti-wolf lobbyists in Washington secured 72 Congressional signatures on a letter to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe demanding that wolves in the Lower 48 be completely delisted under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

How come ranchers are allowed to graze their herds for free on federal land in the first place?

In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
