Would you pay $19 to kill a wolf?

Dear Center Supporter,

Breaking news: The anti-wolf zealots are losing ground.

After weeks of intense pressure from the Center for Biological Diversity and other groups, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service just admitted to excluding key wolf experts from the scientific analysis of its infamous, nationwide wolf-delisting plan. The Service has dissolved its hand-picked panel and turned over the entire review process to an independent research institute. Now the nation's top wolf scientists --once improperly disqualified for questioning the Service's proposal to delist wolves -- will be reconsidered as candidates for the review panel.

This is a victory in our fight to keep federal protections for gray wolves -- but another battle is raging in the northern Rockies and Great Lakes. The wolf-killing season is starting, and hunters and trappers are lining up by the thousands.

In case you missed my last email, the Center urgently needs 6,000 wolf heroes to counter 6,000 wolf killers in Montana.
Will you help now by giving to our Wolf Defense Fund and become a hero for these beleaguered animals?

In Montana 6,000 people just paid $19 to kill a wolf. Selling cheap $19 wolf tags to 6,000 people is an atrocity, because Montana only has 625 wolves left after last year's killing season. Not satisfied with the massacre, the state has lined up 10 times as many rifles as there are wolves to finish the job.

I'm writing today because the Center for Biological Diversity needs help balancing the odds. We need 6,000 wolf heroes to donate to our Wolf Defense Fund to ensure that federal protections are not stripped from all wolves across the country.

By donating, you'll help stop the killing and send Montana a powerful message that a wolf's life is worth far more than $19.

We can't let these extermination practices spread nationwide. Wolf haters are putting up money to wipe out wolves. Wolf supporters need to do the same if we're going to stop the killing.

That's why we're asking for 6,000 people to donate to our Wolf Defense Fund to keep wolves federally protected. Please give as generously as you can, and pass this appeal on to your friends.

With your help, we can counter the 6,000 wolf killers with 6,000 wolf supporters.

When it comes to wolf protection, the Center's lawyers and activists know how to get the job done. Oregon’s wolves now have more protections because of a lawsuit the Center and allies filed in 2011; last month we won a decade-long battle to improve federal protection standards for wolves in New Mexico and Arizona; and because of our work, California is on its way to placing wolves on its highly protective state endangered species list.

With your help, we'll stop the federal government's plan to strip protection from all wolves nationwide
. We'll secure a future for wolves in California, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Colorado and the Northeast. And we'll pressure Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and the Great Lake states to stop indiscriminate killing.

Don't let Montana's killing spree spread. Become one of 6,000 wolf heroes and give to our Wolf Defense Fund today. With your help we can stop the mass deaths.

For the wolves,

P.S. Because the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service just extended the comment period on the proposed wolf delisting to Oct. 28, we're organizing large turnouts and street protests at all the public hearings. Your donation to the Wolf Defense Fund will pay for this work and for us to go to court to stop the killing. Please give today.
