Submit your public comment opposing the new Forest Service proposal that will permit an array of poisons, traps and shooting to wipe out wolves and other carnivores in federally designated wilderness areas.

According to the 1964 Wilderness Act, these special places should be preserved in their natural conditions with little or no human influence. Send in your public comments now!
Dear Conrad,

I just got horrible news and I need your help: the U.S. Forest Service has proposed making it easier to kill more wolves, bears, and other carnivores in places meant to be wild and free. Worse, we only have until August 7 to stop them.

They want to use an array of poisons, traps and shooting -- including aerial gunning -- to wipe out wolves and other carnivores in federally designated wilderness areas. Please make sure this terrible plan doesn't become a reality!

Take action now. Tell the U.S. Forest Service to withdraw this ill-advised proposal. Submit your personalized comments before the August 7th deadline!

Under the proposal, federal agents could chase down and kill bears or other carnivores using planes, helicopters, and all-terrain vehicles -- invading areas once safe for these creatures with loud, intrusive machines.

The proposal also allows for the use of the controversial pesticide sodium cyanide. Baited devices could be used to shoot this highly toxic gas into a wolf's mouth, causing a horrible death.

Wildlife Services, the agency that would be put in charge, has a grim track record. In 2004 alone, Wildlife Services agents killed more than 37,000 animals -- coyotes, wolves, foxes, and bobcats -- from the air.

Wolves, bears, coyotes, cougars and other carnivores play an important role in the ecological balance of our wilderness areas. They are essential species that keep other wildlife populations in check by preventing overpopulation and habitat damage.

Help stop this harmful proposal from becoming a reality! Submit your comments today.

Wilderness areas were meant to be wild and free. According to the 1964 Wilderness Act, these special places should be preserved in their natural conditions with little or no human influence. But the Forest Service's plan could fundamentally alter these largely untouched areas, allowing low-flying airplanes, trucks and all-terrain vehicles to hunt down populations of wolves, bears and other carnivores.

Write to the U.S. Forest Service today. Tell them to abandon their proposal to take the wild out of our wilderness areas.

Thanks for caring to make a difference today,

Hilary S.

P.S. Your comments will be most effective if they are personalized. Tell officials why it is important to you that they do not go forward with this harmful proposal: http://go.care2.com/e/Ly9/Oi/Sv24

Totally signed...
 
I can't believe how stupid some people are...  Oh yeah, get rid of all the top predators and then what'll happen?  They'd be bitching about the overpopulation of prey animals...
 
I hope they get bitten by rats!
