Help End the Brutal Aerial Gunning of Wolves

Help End the Brutal Aerial Gunning of Wolves

By SOP newswire2

Since 2003 more than 1,000 wolves have been chased down by private gunmen in low-flying planes and killed with high-powered rifles.

It`s all part of Alaska`s brutal aerial gunning program that`s both unscientific and unnecessary -- and we need your help to stop it!

Write your U.S. senators today and urge them to support the Protect America`s Wildlife (PAW) Act -- vital legislation to end Alaska`s terrible aerial gunning program, and prevent programs like it from spreading elsewhere.

More than 120 U.S. representatives have already signed on to cosponsor this important legislation in the House. Now, it`s time to take the fight to the Senate.

In July, the PAW Act made its debut in the Senate when Senator Dianne Feinstein introduced this wolf-saving legislation. We need your help to win support for this important bill.

Will you help convince your senators to sign on as a cosponsor to support the PAW Act?

So far this year, dedicated wildlife supporters have generated nearly 70,000 messages to their elected officials in support of federal legislation to close the loophole that has allowed Alaskan officials to license private hunters to use low-flying aircraft to harass and kill more than 1,000 wolves since 2003.

Please email your senators today and urge them to join the fight against aerial wolf killing. Take action now!

Another brutal aerial gunning season is on the horizon. But we`re making real progress to end this terrible program -- and prevent programs like it from spreading to the lower 48 states.

We can save the lives of wolves and other wildlife threatened by aerial gunning programs like Alaska`s, but we need your help to win. I hope you`ll take the time to use your voice and make a difference "
