“War on Wolves Act” Senators from Midwest and Wyoming introduce bill to strip protections from endangered gray wolves

January 24, 2017 Washington, D.C. —

Senators from Minnesota, Wisconsin and Wyoming yesterday introduced the “War on Wolves Act,” a companion bill to legislation introduced last week in the House that would strip federal protections from wolves and allow trophy hunting and trapping of the species in four states.

If the legislation passes both chambers and gets signed by the president, it would hand the fate of wolves in Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin and Wyoming over to states whose management wolf plans two federal courts ruled inadequate to securing the species at legally required population levels in absence of Endangered Species Act protections.

In Wyoming, this would allow the state to resume a hostile management program that allowed for unlimited shoot-on-sight killing of wolves across 85 percent of the state. The legislation would further strip citizens of the right to challenge these lethal programs in court. The appeals process of two federal court decisions that restored federal protections to wolves in those four states are still underway. Decisions on those cases are expected any day.

The following is a statement from Marjorie Mulhall, Senior Legislative Counsel at Earthjustice:

“A new congress has resurfaced an old vendetta against imperiled wolves. If this legislation is signed into law, wolves in Wyoming will be subjected to unregulated killing across the vast majority of the state, and even on the borders of Yellowstone National Park numerous legal loopholes will authorize widespread wolf killing.


Americans widely hailed the return of wolves to the Northern Rockies two decades ago as a triumph of the Endangered Species Act, but now this ‘War on Wolves Act’ would allow for the same unregulated killing that nearly wiped out the species in the first place.

 Politicians should not meddle in the science-based listing status of a particular species at any stage, but now is an especially bad time as these cases are still playing out in the courts. We urge those who support the protection of wolves to call their senators and representatives and tell them to vote down this lethal legislation.”

    I am so sickened by this news! The reason the wolves attack the cattle is because they are available. So I think it should be up to the ranchers to protect their cattle from the wolves. They are paid for their losses. We need the wolves but how do we convince the people that make the laws! People worked so hard for so many years to reintroduce them back to the USA and now 4 state want to eradicate them probably in a few months! I don't know what our country is coming to but it seems they want to get rid of all wildlife and sell off all the public land. This is not why I live here. I thought this was a free country and we could enjoy our public lands, afterall we pay for them. I am so very sad, I can barely watch or read about the wolves and the horses anymore, knowing there is nothing I can do. Please just leave them alone...

    There is so much joke and hatred going on. And I don't get why these wolves deserve to get killed as a trophy. It's not right to have these endangered species to get eradicate. It all started out with the stupid myth of Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs. Enough! These creatures are terrified of humans because of how much they're hunted down. We need more people to solve problems without murder. We need more people to realize that so much is falling apart and we got to stop this hatred and act. Killing is never the answer! Hunting is never something to be proud of. Instead we should love and safe these animals. Worse we have a man who is selfish and heartless to be president.

    1) The wolves in the western states now are NOT the native Rocky Mountain/Timber wolves. They are the MacKenzie Valley Gray Wolves. A northern Canada/Alaska wolf that is 25% bigger than the native wolves and more aggressive.
    2) These wolves where illegally introduced per EPA guidelines.
    3) There were three confirmed native Timber/Rocky Mountain Wolf packs in Northern Idaho in the 1990's when these non native wolves where released. Within 6 months the new wolves killed off the last remaining native wolves forever making the Timber wolf extinct.
    3) These wolves will kill an animal and not eat any of it. One wolf will kill and eat about 24 elk a year but they kill and not eat around ten more and harrass many more to the point of exhaustion where they latter die of stress and dehydration.
    4) One of the more "fun" kills these wolves do documented by the USFW is to disable a pregnant cow elk or deer, rip the fetus out and just leave not eating any part of the animals.
    5) Wolves carry the hydatid disease. A tapeworm disease that other wildlife contract if they accidentally inhale wolf scat which is common because animals have there nose to the ground the majority of time.
    This disease was only in Alaska and Northern Canada before these wolves brought it to the lower 48. This is another way wolves are killing wildlife.
    6) Wolves commonly will eat an animal alive. Sometimes they come back to the animal over several days as the animal dies a slow horrible death.
    7) These wolves are not even the slightest endangered. Between the lower 48, Canada and Alaska there are approximately 50,000-60,000 of these wolves.
    8) Wolves also kill bears, Lynx, Beavers, occasional cougar and pretty much anything else they can get a hold of.
    9) The original ESA contract when the wolves where released in the 90's was that once wolves reached 200 in any western state the wolves could be managed by said state by any legal means to keep the population around 200. Anymore than 200 according to the biologist that studied at that time would be "detrimental to wildlife populations".

    So that is just some of the facts for you.

    1) Partially correct. The Canadian wolf was introduced after our Native wolves were wiped out by hunters in 1960. The native wolf did not have sufficient numbers to recover. FUNCTIONALLY EXTINCT due to our interferance.
    2) Incorrect. It was determined that the two species were sufficiantly similar to allow introduction.
    3) All true. What exactly is your point? Morality of natural hunting instincts is a ridiculous premise upon which to debate.
    4) Irrelevant and emotion based premise.
    5)Unconfirmed and unsubstantiated. While this disease is carried in wolves there is no evidence it crosses to other native wild species.
    6)True. Again, what is the point of your statement here? We don't have laws regulating how natural predators deal with their prey.
    7)INCORRECT! Not even close to those numbers. I'd like a citation please. (won't get it cause it just ain't so)
    8) True. See above. pointless statement.
    9)Citation required, and I believe you are taking one element of a much larger document out of context.

    For Minnesota residents, Senator Franken has not co-sponsored this bill. He needs us to urge him NOT to sponsor or support this bill. Please call Senator Franken at 202 224-5614 in DC, 218 722-2390 in Duluth, 651 221 1016 in St. Paul, 210 284 8721 in Moorhead.

    Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) has co-sponsored S 164. Please ask her to reconsider and withdraw her sponsorship for this bill. Please call her at 202 224 3244 in DC, 612 727 5220 in Minneapolis, 507 288 5321 in Rochester, 218 741 9690 in Virginia and 218 287 2219 in Moorhead.

    For Wisconsin residents, Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) has co-sponsored S. 164. Please ask her to reconsider and withdraw her sponsorship from the bill. Call her at 202 224-5643 in DC, 800 247 5645 toll free from WI or call one of her district offices.

    For all other states, urge your US Senators to NOT sponsor or vote for S. 164.

    For those who live in New York, Senator Schumer as the minority leader will be involved in determining what bills are voted upon and he can assist with defending the wolf. Senator Schumer can be reached at 202 224-6542, 518 431-4070 in Albany.

    Here are some talking points if time permits on your call. Otherwise, make a simple request to vote NO on S.164 and keep the wolf federally protected.

    Delisting will be detrimental to the gray wolf. As soon as the wolf was no longer federally protected, wolf killing was unleashed and it occurs now. The massive wolf killings through state-supported hunts has already lessened the genetic diversity of the wolf population and created chaos in the wolf packs.

    The wolf is essential to a healthy ecosystem. Many other species' live and thrive where the wolf is present. Even the deer are larger and healthier when living near the wolf, an apex predator.

    Wolves are not a threat to cattle. In Minnesota where 2.78 million cattle were raised in 2015, only 74 calves and cows were verified killed by a wolf. Yet for that insignificant and small mortality (.0032%) from a suspected wolf, almost 200 wolves were killed in Minnesota in response by federal agents using baiting and trapping of wolves without any verification of any specific wolf. That is 10% of the entire wolf population in MN! The wolf still needs federal protections. Make the call today. Find your senators here.

The idea, or the narrative, that "we" can now hunt wolves; as if it is a privilege, is going to still allow hunting to be destroyed, because the very issue isn't that we have a right, but rather, that it is a privilege to stop the damage wolves have caused. Take wolves out of the narrative, and replace it with ISIS. Would we be talking the same way? Wolves have always been the pariah, and they always will be.

    Earth to all wolf lovers (and I love wolves too, but know they need management): even when wolves were listed, there are provisions that allow depredating or problem wolves to be killed, and government trappers killed thousands through the years even when there were no hunting or trapping seasons, sometimes hundreds in a year in Minnesota alone, for example. Management of wolves was returned to the states under President Obama, too. It was only a federal judge who sided with some anti-hunting groups to get wolves listed again. They are NOT endangered or even threatened in the Great Lakes and no state management plan will "eradicate" wolves. In fact, there's a minimum number in each state which won't even likely get close to. The last thing they want is to get them listed again, so they'll manage them to goals that have been set for years and even were agreed to by pro-wolf groups back when wolves were allowed to repopulate the Great Lakes states. Now that they're WAY over goal, the wolf groups have gone back on their word. Pretty typical, as the wolf is the poster child for fundraising. Have you ever seen the six-figure salaries of some of these "wolf lovers" that work for groups like HSUS or PETA??? Your donations are not saving dogs and cats, or even wolves.

    After reading these posts, it makes me wonder, how many of these people really live around these areas where they want to MANAGE the wolf population... Over the many years, and it has been many, I have lived in this area of over populated wolves, I have known many people that have lost there livestock to wolves, (not everyone has the luxury of being reimbursed for there lose of livestock), and it has been devastating to them. Not to mention the people that have had there dogs, cats, and other animals killed by the wolves. Wolves will and do, come right up to your home and kill your animals. Just last month, wolves killed a deer in the home of my son, right in his yard. He has a family, a daughter that is blind, a dog that has been part of the family for years. Wolves don't care if it's night or day when they kill or what they kill. No. I don't support the killing of all wolves, but I DO SUPPORT the management of them. They have definitely increased their numbers which bring them to spread out wider for food and play. I feel each state should have the right to decide when it's time to manage them and how many need to be eliminated to keep things in check. Don't judge, if you don't live here in these areas and have not seen what they can do.

The wolves that were so "hailed" by the tree huggin, flower sniffin, dope smoking, bunnie huggers were INTRODUCED to the states - they were not the native wolf that had resided in the past (and still did in Yellowstone when the bunny huggers INTRODUCED the wolf). States should and WILL have control of these non-native predators. Marjorie Mulhall can kiss my ass. Randy Moseman

Wolves, as vicious as they can be, and as loving and gentle as they are, (we had a Timberwolf) keep the population at bay. Deer carry diseases no one thinks about, and without natures control, it would spread and decimate entire herds. So how about the politicians in these 3 states do what they are getting paid to do, and serve the people, and leave nature to serve itself. The eco system is built to keep itself going at a constant level. It does not need human interference. This just burns my ass up.

They encourage biodiversity, they control rodent populations as well as other small animal populations, wolves also eat berries and other vegetation - meaning they also transport plant life to other areas along with their natural fertilizer. Big business is stuck in the industrial age, and are too money blind in the moment to look and ask "what is the most sustainable way forward, how can income be generated now and in the future, how can longevity be applied to X?" Greed is all about the NOW, and can not see the future. The wolves need to stay.

    Wisconsin set a goal of 350 packs of wolves as a sustainable population. Since they were put on the "endangered" species list that number has become two to three times that number and growing. They are moving south out of the heavily forested northern regions where they have decimated the whitetail deer population and into the more heavily farmed regions of the state. Guaranteed a calf or sheep in a pasture or your dog on a chain in your back yard will be easier to catch and kill than any deer. The northern deer are running the wolf gauntlet out in the big woods. Deer hunting is a 1.4 billion dollar a year economic benefit to the state. Like it or not there are over 600,000 deer hunters in Wisconsin and they provide a tremendous economic impact for the financially strapped northern third of the state in the form of tourist dollars. Many of us pay thousands of dollars a year in property taxes for a place up north where we can hunt, fish and enjoy nature. Now in many areas the wolves have reduced the number of deer to near nothing and then they move on to do the same thing in a neighboring area. People don't see wolves in the wild, only what carnage they have created. All you bunny huggers would feel the same way if you had a wolf pack in your area.

    None of you people have a clue what you are talking about. I keep hearing "upsetting the balance" type comments and we need to rewind a bit,the upset came when these non native wolves were introduced, not RE-introduced. The elk population has suffered the most.. Yellowstone is a great example of this, I've been going there since I was a kid and used to be able to see hundreds of elk,the last time I was there I saw SEVEN! My guess is that most of you people that are so "higher thinking and evolved" haven't ever even seen a wolf in the wild or spent a whole lot of time in the wilderness or on a ranch where you'd have gained any first hand knowledge of the subject. You don't really have any right to put in your 2 cents that you know nothing about! As for relocation, where are you going you put them? NO ONE WANTS/NEEDS THEM! Another ignorant comment coming from people have no idea what they talking about. I have an idea, let's put them in Central Park,they are so beautiful and scared of humans that I'm sure they'd be no trouble at all! Problem solved! I really wish that would happen, then you idiots would get a crash course in wolves 101, I'm guessing some people tunes may change after that! One thing, I would venture a guess that all of you great animal loving "conservationists" are all pro choice. It always seems to be that way.

    Wisconsin wolves walked over from Minnesota in 1956 and they have stayed, thrived and multiplied. Before they got here the coyotes were the animal apex predator and while they would harass the deer herd particularly when they were in deep snow and keep them in the winter yarding areas longer, they were not a serious threat to the overall deer population. Coyotes would rather catch and eat smaller mammals than deer anyway. A lot of you have written that we need the gray wolf to help manage the deer herd. Wisconsin sold 832,092 deer hunting licenses in 2016. That is over 16 million dollars for conservation from license sales alone. That many deer hunters with high powered rifles will do just fine managing the Wisconsin deer herd without any help from the wolves. That brings up another point that most of you bleeding hearts don't stop to consider. Do you even realize how a wolf kills a deer? They catch it from behind and tear out the tendons on its hind legs so that it can't run. Then they eat it alive in a lot of instances back to front until the deer bleeds to death or dies from stress. The deer herd does need to be managed, but a high powered rifle bullet in the chest or central nervous system is an infrequently more humane way of killing an animal than eating it alive. Man is now the apex predator in my state and we don't need or want the wolves.

There is no such thing as global warming and your stupid opinion about declining moose populations is the dumbest thing i have heard in years, you have just wasted valuable air and my time reading your stupid post may people never read or listen to anything you have to ever say again.

    What an inarticulate ignoramus you've proven yourself to be (as if we couldn't surmise that, from your childish remarks and responses): I reside in a region that used to be teeming with moose, where considerable, respected, documented scientific research has led to the conclusions I reiterated here... and where might we find anything that supports the profane drivel that spews from your illiterate orifice: more "alternative facts", no doubt...
