106 Wolves killed in 118 Days

Last time, 37 wolves had been slaughtered since the Bush Administration stripped them of their endangered species protection in March.

A terrible new milestone has been reached: 106 wolves have been killed in the past 118 days.

That's nearly one wolf killed every day. And if Wyoming, Idaho and Montana have their way, at least 900 wolves -- nearly 60
percent of the population -- could be exterminated this fall, when a massive public hunt begins.

This will be the very last summer for many of Yellowstone's wolves -- unless immediate action is taken to stop
the killing.

That is why I am signing the petition to the Interior Department demanding that it restore protection for wolves now:

Tourists visiting Yellowstone have been horrified to learn that the very wolves they've traveled hundreds and thousands of miles to see are being gunned down just outside the park. Hundreds of tourists a day are signing petitions to protest the slaughter.

The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), is circulating those petitions in the park AND taking court action -- along with 11 other conservation groups -- to compel the Bush Administration to restore protection for the wolves.
