Recent plants by Federal officials involve eliminating essential protections for wolves living in Wyoming. If this plan succeeds, wolves would be considered predators, and individuals even without hunting licenses would be protected under law to kill any wolf they deem a threat. A shoot-on-sight state policy will cover nearly 90% of the state, and could lead to indiscriminate wolf killing, even in national forests where animal conservation is the foundation of its preservation. Wolves are not any more dangerous than many of the animals living in Wyoming and should be treated just as the other wildlife, and protected under law rather than alienated. Please SIGN THE PETITION by January 11, 2012 to oppose this new policy!
