Help the Michigan Wolves

This from Wolfwatcher on facebook. Please read, then sign the petition’s to stop wolf hunting in Michigan. Our government is out of control abd these creatures must be protected and put back on the endangered species list. Please do you part to help protect Michigan’s wolves.

“Just as expected, Michigan’s Senate introduced Senate Bill 1350 which authorizes the Natural Resources Commission to establish the hunting season for the gray wolf. The bill deems hunting as necessary to prevent wolves from threatening livestock. It is important to note that this bill has the same original content as HB 5834 (its companion bill in the House) which takes it one step further in the legislative process.

Thus, we urge you to please considering signing/sharing our petition to the Michigan Legislature which expresses strong opposition to BOTH bills currently pending in Michigan’s House and Senate: http://www.change.org/petitions/urge-michigan-s-legislature-to-reject-hr-5834-and-sb1350

This comes from Wolfwatcher on Facebook

“The future of wolves in California is nearing a critical   point. Will the state accept the return of these once-native predators? The California Fish and Game Commission is hosting a  public hearing about whether to protect wolves under the state’s Endangered Species Act.  California’s Fish and Game Dept — the full-time staff biologists and other NON-political employees recommended that wolves get consideration for legal protection.  Journey (OR-7), the first confirmed wolf in California in more than 85 years who wandered across state lines from Oregon, quickly became the focus over the future of wolves in the state. State scientists believe other gray wolves may migrate into California and could start breeding populations. There are concerns that ranchers may view the wolves as a threat to livestock making protected status a high priority…. …
The decision will be made this week.  What say you, Wolfwatchers?  Should California list the wolf as an “endangered species?”
