Idaho has paid out hundreds of bounties to wolf hunters — anywhere from $500 to $2,500 per animal killed. Montana approved a similar program last year.
Now a group from Idaho is trying to get wolf bounties approved in Wyoming, too.
We can't just sit back and let it happen.
Please give to the Saving Life on Earth Fund today. All gifts will be matched through May 31.
Records show that the group managing Idaho's wolf-bounty program has received $200,000 from the state and paid out more than $10,000 to its directors and their families.
Anti-wolf forces are driven by greed — at the cost of animals' lives.
Now that group is trying to expand wolf bounties into Wyoming and legalize a new trapping season — right outside the boundaries of Yellowstone National Park.
While wolves in most of the lower 48 had their Endangered Species Act protection given back to them this year, wolves in the northern Rockies remain at risk.
We won't abandon them.
This hunting and trapping season alone, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming have slaughtered more than 500 wolves — at least 25 of them around Yellowstone — often by brutal means like painful strangulation snares.
We've filed an emergency petition to protect the wolves of the northern Rockies. The Biden administration agrees that the wolves there are in danger, but the threats remain.
We know that those who see wolves as pests will stop at nothing to wipe them out — and we also know we'll never stop fighting them.
In court, in Congress, in the streets, our love for wolves and the wild will overcome those who want to kill for profit.
Please make a matched gift today to the Saving Life on Earth Fund.
For the wild,
