Text 15 Apr 20 notes Idaho Wolf Tortured in Trap

Last year wolves in the northern Rocky Mountains were protected under the Endangered Species Act, but then an unprecedented congressional rider stripped that protection away. This followed promises from the states that wolves would be conserved as a game species like any other.

Instead, as you can see from this photo, by allowing shooting, trapping and snaring Idaho has opened a Pandora’s box of wolf scapegoating.

It’s no secret that livestock and hunting-outfitter interests are determined to drastically reduce wolf numbers in the northern Rockies. They’re feeding an anti-wolf fervor under the banner of protecting elk and livestock, and the shocking cruelty apparent in this photo is a product of that hysteria.

Please sign our petition to help us expose and combat this official sanction of wolf persecution.
