Backpacker Magazine. Feds Hounding Rocky Mountain Wolves-

The sad truth is the agency (USFWS) that reintroduced the wolves to Idaho and Wyoming has now become their enemy. Only an election victory can alter this, IMO.

    Alright, Basically the story above and looking at the Wyoming Wolf Management Plan. The state of WY has not changed hardly a thing with their “management plan” Which should be dubbed plan to exterminate. They are opening their comment period but only until the 10th of November. Written comments, Faxed, mailed and dropped off at one of their meetings are the only ways we have to disapprove.

    Write them to the following.

    Wolf Plan Comments
    Attn: Bea Pepper
    Wyoming Game and Fish Department
    5400 Bishop Blvd.
    Cheyenne, WY 82006
    Fax: (307) 777-4650

    We need to bombard them with mail showing our disapproval, even if you think it will not make a difference i am going to do it because it is what is RIGHT.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
