Save the Wolves
Petition Background (Preamble):
Ranchers often fire the guns in the air to frighten the wolves instead of killing them. Despite this, however, the US government plan on culling wolves. The methods used here would be extremely cruel and would probably involve poisoning and shooting.
Despite what some people may tell you, shooting is not a humane death. If you miss and hit an animal in the wrong place, you can injure it and it will probably die slowly due to blood loss or starvation. Poisoning is also a very cruel death. The animals that are poisoned can, depending on the type of poison, take hours to die, and they will almost certainly be in terrible pain.
Wolves are an endangered species and we don't know how many are left now. This "cull" could bring the species even closer to extinction.
If it weren't for wolves, we would never have had dogs, and dogs have saved thousands, if not millions, of lives since we first came together.
