Help Stop Rogue Wildlife-killing Agency

Under various names Wildlife Services has exterminated millions of animals since the early part of the 20th century, targeting native carnivores like coyotes and foxes, ferrets, birds and many other species at the behest of agribusiness interests. In the past half-decade, the agency has killed about 1.5 million native animals annually. And the killing goes unchecked. We're working to put an end to the massacre. Watch our video on the issue, visit our web page, and please act now to tell Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack to rein in this out-of-control, wildlife-killing agency.
