Important Petition to Stop Hunting !

Posted on

Halt wolf hunts pending 9th District Court of Appeals decision and scientific research to confirm wolf recovery data.

Due to a 2011 budget rider (Sec. 1713), gray wolves lost federal protection under the ESA. It orders the Interior Secretary to reissue the final delisting rule published in 2009. Articles written by scientists in independent peer-reviewed journals criticized the 2009 rule for complying more with political expediency instead of best available science. This is regarded as a particularly egregious affront to the voice of the majority and to fair representation in our country. The rider circumvents the District Court’s ruling in Defenders of Wildlife, 729 F.Supp.2d 1207, and was designed to direct the outcome of a pending case without amending the underlying statute involved. We join the Union of Concerned Scientists in denouncing this action.

PLEASE GO TO THIS LINK AND SIGN THE PETITION. TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE!
