Terrible news out of Washington: The two remaining wolves of the Wedge pack, an adult female and an adult male, were killed by the state on Aug. 13, finishing off the pack completely. Now, up to two wolves from the Leadpoint pack in Stevens County remain in danger of being killed.
Since 2012, Washington has killed 34 wolves. Nearly all were slaughtered for conflicts on public lands, with 29 killed for the same livestock owner. The WDFW, catering to livestock operators, is out for blood. Washington’s killing of wolves is barbaric and cruel, and must be stopped.
Multiple wolf conservation organizations are calling for the WDFW to immediately halt its ruthless killing of wolves to appease private ranching interests, and calling on Governor Inslee to reform wolf management in the state.
Please take 10 minutes NOW to demand an end to the killing!

Respectfully tell them to stop killing wolves in Washington.
Tell them why the return of wolves to the PNW is important to you & why endangered wolves should be protected, not killed.
