For The Love of The Wolf
A place where wolf lovers and activists can gather to appreciate and honor our friend the wolf.
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 photos inEarth Island Journal, 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.
