Gray wolves are struggling to recover in the Pacific Northwest, California, southern Rocky Mountains and Northeast — but the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) is drafting a proposal to delist them in these states.

To “delist” means to remove the protections of the Endangered Species Act (ESA). This would be a death sentence for wolves.

More than 1,200 wolves in the Rocky Mountains and the Great Lakes region have been massacred since they lost ESA protection in 2011, when the species was removed from the list by political fiat instead of science.

Wolves across these states are slaughtered by bowhunters, gunned down by “recreational” hunters, tortured by trappers in steel-jaw foothold traps and snares, and subjected to brutal “management” methods, including aerial gunning. The same fate awaits wolves in other regions who are barely hanging on. Delisting would subject them to the same massacre we’re seeing in the Rocky Mountain states and the Great Lakes states where they’ve already lost protection.

Tell USFWS to keep gray wolves protected under the ESA. Tell them delisting is premature, because wolf populations have not yet recovered, and because the prejudices and misconceptions that led to their near elimination across the continent are still present.

The Howl
There was a time the world was ours
No big tall buildings, no noisy cars
No people with guns, shooting at
Everything they see
When we could howl
As a family
When we could roam our world
At will
Not worrying about if we would
Be killed
The moon our beacon, the sun our friend
We did not think this would ever end.
