Dear Governor Dayton,

I'm writing to advocate heavily against HF 2171. If you sign this bill into law you will be subjecting thousands of animals to needless suffering and death. The wolf population in MN is the longest standing in the continental US and without hunting or additional management this population has naturally found an equilibrium with the environment.

Further, scientists have not shown any compelling reason to institute a hunt at this time and in fact, in regions where hunting of wolves has been permitted, the issues related to wolves and livestock and wolves and humans frequently becoming worse as a result of pack disruption that forces less experienced animals to try and fend for themselves. Further the elimination of a pack is frequently simply met with a new pack migrating into the area; this rarely resolves an issue.

For wolf/livestock depredation problems, there are many more effective and also humane means to ameliorate the conflicts. These include the use of various herding dogs. the deployment of fladry and the use of more appropriate stock management techniques.

Wolves are an iconic and necessary species that to millions of people represent the epitome of natural beauty. They share a special kinship with humanity as the forebear of our own beloved dogs. They are highly intelligent, highly social animals that are fearful of people and necessary for a healthy ecosystem.

I urge you to do the right thing for nature, your constituency, the greater public at large and for the eyes of the world by refusing to let a small, sadistic and ill-informed group of animal killers and ranchers convince you to set policy that is against the will of the larger population and against the better interests of planet earth.

Sincerely,

I once heard a story of a woman on a plane that had been hijacked and was set to be destroyed in mid air. This very amazing lady focussed all her energy on sending LOVE to the hijackers.. the energy in them totally changed and they were unable to destroy the plane and it landed safely.. Our thoughts are so, so powerful.. could I ask EVERYONE reading this to send love, light, healing and wisdom to Governor Mark Drayton... with the intention that he will discover...

**Animals give me more pleasure through the viewfinder of a camera than they ever did in the crosshairs of a gunsight. And after I've finished "shooting," my unharmed victims are still around for others to enjoy. I have developed a deep respect for animals. I consider them fellow living creatures with certain rights that should not be violated any more than those of humans. ~Jimmy Stewart**
