Wolf Petition

PETITION: Grant wolves federal protection by listing them as threatened in the Endangered Species Act

TARGET: Secretary of the US Department of the Interior, Ryan Zinke

Scientific evidence has shown that the population of grey wolves in the United States is severely in danger of becoming extinct. From the once bountiful population before 1978, wolves have been reduced to solely two populations in the lower 48 states. Meanwhile, 95% of the area that wolves once lived in, now remains empty and barren. This is due to the threats that wolves face in these regions such as hunters and trappers. In order for the species of grey wolves to fully recover, they must be held under federal protection. Without this, they are in severe danger of ceasing to exist.

Wolves are necessary to maintain biodiversity in the environment as they help to reduce the effects of overpopulation in prey species and protect and maintain a healthy ecosystem. Without the presence of grey wolves, the ecosystem is thrown off balance and a great species is lost. Even with this risk at hand, many states are still allowing hunters and trappers to kill grey wolves. This needs to be stopped by the intervention of federal laws.

We, the undersigned, are asking for grey wolves to be listed as threatened throughout the lower 48 states of the United States and given full protection under the Endangered Species Act. We cannot stand to see these magnificent creatures be lost forever. Thank you for helping us to fight for the lives of this precious species!

Every animal deserves to live. They are part of the ecosystem.

Wolves are one of the most endangered species, and they're not listed as endangered? What wacko dreamed that up? I want equal rights for all animals, even those that may be harmful to livestock.

Because most that are killed are just left to rot and wasted. Most can be relocated if a nuisance or threat. To kill just for the thrill is nonsense and shameful.
