Utah on Wolves

Hysterical Anti-Wolf Hatred Has Hit All Time High

By SOP newswire2

Hysterical anti-wolf hatred has hit a new high in Utah.

Spurred on by the so-called Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife, " anti-wolf legislators are expected to pass a bill as early as this week that would allow state officials to remove any wolves that migrate back to their historic range in Utah.

Defenders of Wildlife`s resources are stretched thin with the increasing human threats to these long persecuted animals, but we`re fighting hard to block this outrageous anti-wolf bill.

We need your emergency donation of $15.00, $30.00, or whatever you can afford today to stop the Utah anti-wolf bill from becoming law. 

Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife is the very same group whose Idaho chapter has been holding wolf-killing derbies to raise funds for anti-wolf litigation.

We can`t let these extremists win. Please help us stop this bill, save the lives of our wolves and other imperiled animals in the wild.

Working with our allies on the ground, Defenders of Wildlife is fighting hard to block this anti-wolf bill in Utah and to restore federal protections for these magnificent animals.

Wolves once roamed freely in Utah, playing an important part in balanced ecosystems in the state. But aggressive hunting, trapping and poisoning exterminated these important animals from the state during the last century.

Now there is hope as more wolves migrate from the Greater Yellowstone region into states like Utah. We won`t allow these wolves to be met by a hail of bullets.

Can you help us fight for the lives of these wolves? Please donate now.

Defenders supporters in Utah have already sent nearly 1,000 messages to state legislators, and we`re gearing up for an intensive effort to stop this bill over the next week.

Your caring contribution today will help us fight Utah`s anti-wolf extremists and win our court fight to restore life-saving federal protections for wolves in the northern Rockies -- including and especially in states like Utah, where anti-wolf hatred is running at a fever pitch.

We can`t win for wolves without your help. Please help support these vital efforts with your caring donation today.
