Petition Tag - wolf
Before the Europeans came to Canada, wolves lived in harmony with the environment. But, when the settlers arrived, wolves were poisoned, trapped, and hunted.
Wolves that weren't attacked, were left homeless when their forest home was developed. With the largest wolf population in the world, Canada has allot to up-hold. People come here for the wilderness, and, with the wolf as the primary symbol, no one will come, and, as well as having less income, the country could be responsible for a huge decline in the population of the wolf.
Canada should also be ashamed that with the Rocky Mountains being the best possible habitat in Canada for a wolf, there was not one spotted in that area over a 30 year time period.
Wolves are being indiscriminately killed in British Columbia, and under the pretext of "Wildlife Management"!
So-called "conservationists" are killing wolves, even machine-gunning entire packs from helicopters, based on the claim that they are reducing caribou herds; however, loss of habitat is a far more probable cause. Natural ecosystems are self regulating and wolves play a vital role in them.
There is also an increase in the slaughter of wolves to protect livestock on private and public land with insufficient attention to alternative measures such as improved farming practices and animal husbandry.
Wolves are killed for sport and their body parts used as trophies; this is an abhorrent activity and wasteful use of wildlife.
Wolves deserve wilderness habitat in which to live a natural pack life, unmolested.
Humans are the greatest threat to healthy wolf populations, and it's our responsibility to be a voice for these wild animals and the wilderness in which they live.
Several photos of Lady Ga Ga wearing wolf fur and other fur products have been released to the public and Lady Ga Ga herself shows no remorse for these poor animals, even though in a previous interview on the Ellen Degeneres show she stated that she would never wear fur. This irresponsible, heartless act will not be tolerated.
She claims to be the voice of the bullied. We are speaking for all those who can not speak for themselves; abused, tortured and exploited animals everywhere.
We may not change her beliefs, but we can show Lady Ga Ga and Interscope Records that acts like these can have monetary consequences.

The Gray Wolf is a species of wolf recognized as Endangered by the US Government and Extirpated by New York State. This species of wolf’s numbers have dropped as low as 150 per state due to destruction of their natural habitat and and hunting wolves for game.
Using donations, our organizations goal is to help spread awareness of the growing issue of this endangered species, and encourage people to help preserve and save these wolves from being killed and lost thanks to human indecency like so many species have been in the past.
Wolves are a crucial part of our ecosystem, they help prevent the overgrazing of vegetation by herbivores, which would lead to starvation and disease in deer and other animals, which humans eat. They keep the population of old and sick animals down.
The wolf is also regarded as a sacred and cultural animal by many native tribes in our area, which by law were supposed to be consulted about any change in hunting plans, which they were not.
The natural balance and order of the ecosystems will be greatly affected if any of the 700 or so wolves in Wisconsin are killed. Everyone will be affected in some way.
The wolf has been persecuted for years and years. This is the grandfather of our dogs. Where do people think the dogs got their loyalty to family from? The wolf mates for life. There is the Alpha male and female.
They do the hunting, while aunts and uncles watch the young. They are very family oriented. Now, any livestock killed is blamed on the wolf by irate farmers.
Wolves are becoming endangered, Stop the cruelty of wolf slaughter! these wolves are hunted for sport! and for profit!
Amendment No. 342: None of the funds made available by this Act may be used for the continued operation of the Mexican Wolf recovery program.
Despite the fact that 69% of New Mexicans support the reintroduction of Mexican wolves after five decades of extinction in the wild, Mexican wolves remain in peril of a second extermination from the Southwest.
At only 50 lobos in the wild, the Mexican gray wolf is the most endangered wolf and mammalian species in North America. However, this hasn't stopped an onslaught on them and their also-imperiled Northern cousins from both houses of Congress. Two mirror bills (S.249 & H.R.509) are now advancing through the Senate and House with the same intent: to remove Endangered Species Act protections from all gray wolves in the United States.
What will happen if federal protections and funds are removed from wolf management in New Mexico? All new wolf releases will cease and management of lobos will revert to state wildlife authorities, who, unlike federal biologists, are not bound by best available science requirements. Simply put, this will spell doom for the vital reintroduction of wolves in Southwest.
I want people to make wolves a sanctuary. I mean wolves are awsome but everyone hates them just because they need to eat.

May 4, 2009 -- The grey wolf was Monday taken off the U.S. list of endangered species, making a comeback 35 years after it virtually disappeared and can now be hunted in most states, officials said. The grey wolf was placed on the endangered list in 1974 after the animals were almost eliminated in many U.S. states.
The following information is reproduced from:
The Endangered Species Act of 1973 (7 U.S.C. § 136, 16 U.S.C. § 1531 et seq. , ESA) is one of the dozens of United States environmental laws passed in the 1970s. As stated in section 2 of the act, it was designed to protect critically imperiled species from extinction as a "consequence of economic growth and development untempered by adequate concern and conservation."
The Endangered Species Act of 1973: 1-authorizes the determination and listing of species as endangered and threatened; 2-prohibits unauthorized taking, possession, sale, and transport of endangered species; 3-provides authority to acquire land for the conservation of listed species, using land and water conservation funds; 4-authorizes establishment of cooperative agreements and grants-in-aid to States that establish and maintain active and adequate programs for endangered and threatened wildlife and plants; 5-authorizes the assessment of civil and criminal penalties for violating the Act or regulations; and 6-authorizes the payment of rewards to anyone furnishing information leading to arrest and conviction for any violation of the Act or any regulation issued there under.
11. Bring back Wolf
We are appalled that the wolf will not be returning in the new series of gladiators showing on sky one.
The wolf was one of the main men in the original series and should return as he was loved by many people.
This is a petition to help save Kei, a sad and lonely wolf.
There is a North American Timber Wolf named Kei that languishes in a zoo on the far side of the Pacific. In Okinawa, Japan, at the Okinawa Kodomo no Kuni Zoo, you will find a wolf that has lingered on a concrete slab of 7 x 5 metres for the whole 16 years of her life. It is a disgrace that an animal which has symbolized a part of North America`s frontier heritage should be forced to live out her entire existence as such. It would also be a disgrace that once her plight has been made known; no one comes to her aid.
Mission Wolf, run by Kent Weber, has agreed to allow Kei, the North American timber wolf at Kodomo no Kuni, to stay in a spacious enclosure with natural settings. Nearby, Kei will be in the company of other wolves and will never face the isolation that she has had living for years at Okinawa's zoo. Greg Leisure, organizer of the "Campaign to Bring Kei Home", says, "Wolves are highly social animals, and when kept in isolation they are deprived of the mental stimulation that is a part of what makes them what they are. They therefore suffer. It would please all of us if Kei could once again experience the moonlight howling parties of her species."
