Please do not kill wolves in Michigan. They are the heritage of our children and grandchildren and have to be protected. After the Eagles they are the most "American" animal in the world. We do not want to kill them to protect the pockets of a few ranchers!!!
think of the scene in 50 years time...a museum with a magnificent stuffed wolf and all the kids gathered round looking admiringly and asking the curator " if they ran free in america years ago, why don't we have them now?" what's the curator going to answer? something like "you were cheated out of the pleasure of seeing them alive by money hungry ranchers who wouldn't share their land with something that didn't make them money, trigger happy, inbred rednecks with more guns than IQ and bought...

I'm not American but I completely agree with you. It's sad that we have been conned into letting low life scum like them run things. It's time we pushed them back where they belong, in the gutter. I'm Canadian & love our wildlife.
I am Canadian, but feel that I am part of this. We are all connected, to each other and to the animals of this World. Wolves are an integral and important part of the environment.
I'm not in the USA, but I have posted to my timeline & friends. We can still send emails, & use the tourist ban as a threat. I hope this helps, a worldwide petition would have been good, no one likes to see the world watching while they do something as inhuman as this slaughter will be if it goes ahead.
Thanks Kadi! There actually is a world wide petition right here: http://www.causes.com/actions/1737407-stop-the-slaughter-of-wolves-in-michigan-before-it-starts
The only problem is that MI doesn't "accept" online petitions, but that doesn't mean we can't still voice our opinions. On March 24thth I will be providing a link to a pdf file of the petition so that anyone can send it out to whom ever they want. The hearing is on the 26th so I'm hoping to make an impression before they make the final decision :)
Tell them also to boycott the western states. Europeons love to take their six weeks and travel western USA. NO. Write and tell those tourism folks in each state you will not be going to Yellowstone, Glacier, Jackson Hole, etc. Nothing in Idaho, Washington State, Alaska wyoming and now Michigan.
That is a great idea, Karr...the tourists are helping our economy and that is great - but when we are not doing the right thing - protecting our environment and the animals that inhabit the beautiful land that still exists - we need we need to boycott certain vacation spots. That might work!
No animal should be hunted and killed for a trophy! One day our future children will look back and shudder at the cruelty and idiocy that allowed such cruel practices to exist and thrive. I shudder now. I imagine the reverse, if people were hunted for trophies how enraged you'd be, well...what is the difference? What justification can you give for killing another creature for nothing more than pleasure? Its unconscionable.
Stop the wolf hunt! Now
"We and the beasts are kin."-- Ernest Thompson Seton.
People must stop killing wolves. They are God creations and beautiful animals.
The NRA Cult Radicals are like a disease that is descending on our Wolves & other WildLife..They are Very Dangerous Monsters~on an extremely Dangerous Mission~To Destroy Mother Nature! At the top of the chain are the Wolves~Right where they belong..MAN has no place in this chain! STOP THIS MADNESS!
Message from Australia. Consider yourself boycotted Michigan!
