Grizzly bears, black bears, wolves, coyotes, cougars/ mountain lions,bobcats, wolverines, lynx, foxes, fishers and martens are the suite of carnivores that originally inhabited North America after the Pleistocene extinctions. This site invites research, commentary, point/counterpoint on that suite of native animals (predator and prey) that inhabited The Americas circa 1500-at the initial point of European exploration and subsequent colonization. Landscape ecology, journal accounts of explorers and frontiersmen, genetic evaluations of museum animals, peer reviewed 20th and 21st century research on various aspects of our "Wild America" as well as subjective commentary from expert and layman alike. All of the above being revealed and discussed with the underlying goal of one day seeing our Continent rewilded.....Where big enough swaths of open space exist with connective corridors to other large forest, meadow, mountain, valley, prairie, desert and chaparral wildlands.....Thereby enabling all of our historic fauna, including man, to live in a sustainable and healthy environment. - Blogger Rick

Robert Goldman of PROTECT AMERICA'S WOLVES makes a passionate request to all of us to put pressure on Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington to stop the killing of Wolves............A Petition for you to sign as well as email and phone #'s for you to make your sentiments known to Wyoming Governor Matt Mead and President Obama

On October 1, 2012, Wyoming Governor Matt Mead joined with other heartless, cowardly, undemocratic and unethical state government "leaders" in persecuting and massacreing America's innocent, ecologically vital and beautiful wolves.

Gov. Mead and the other perverted wolf demonizers in Wyoming are eager to kill wolf pups, to set out poison and snares, and to gas wolf families in their dens, for no reason other than primitive hatred and "tradition". This is the American government's wildlife policy in 2012. Humane and decent citizens of America and the world: Tell Gov. Mead (his updated email address and phone number are listed below) that we are watching and will fight this vile injustice and the completely unacceptable medieval hatred towards America's wolves and other native wildlife! 

petition: We are heading to 6,000 signers from around the US and the world. Please circulate this email which includes the above petition link, to everyone you know who respects and loves wolves and wildlife.As we all know, ACTION speaks louder than simply signing a petition, so read on for what YOU CAN DO NOW to defend and protect America's wolves.

First, here's some facts to get you up to speed on the truth:

The State of Wyoming filed a hideous proposal with the US Department of Interior, to join the wolf demonizers and killers of Idaho and Montana, and slaughter the innocent wolves of Wyoming. Of course, this violent scheme was approved by America's wolf-hating Secretary of Interior Ken Salazar, a Colorado rancher, who was unfortunately appointed by President Obama. Yes, Democratic politicians are full partners with Republican politicians, in America's latest wolf persecution and slaughter.

And here's some facts about Wyoming, the Rockies and wolves:
Wyoming is HUGE! It is almost 98,000 square miles, which is larger than England, Ireland and Denmark combined. Wyoming is almost as big as the six New England states, plus New Jersey and West Virginia combined.

In this truly massive state, there are fewer than 350 beautiful and amazing wolves. Too many cattle ranchers and sport killers just can't stop demonizing and lying about them.

Wyoming has approximately 1,300,000 cows and calves. The state has barely 500,000 human residents. In 2011, Ken Salazar's US Fish & Wildlife Service confirmed a mere 35 cattle losses attributed to wolves.That's the total for the entire state! 35 cattle out of 1,300,000. Period.
These revealing statistics are similar in the nearby states of Idaho and Montana. Tens of thousands of cattle die every year due to weather, disease, birth complications and from eating poison plants, for which ranchers receive zero compensation.

 Depridation by wolves is insignificant. Not only that, but ranchers are fully compensated for the few confirmed losses by wolves, including some they lie about. Get it? This is not about truth and justice, it's simply about "control"and a perverse desire by heartless and violent American wildlife haters to kill, to kill innocent wolves for no reason other than "tradition." How pathetic that this mindless violence and disrespect for the continent's native wildlife is still served by state and federal officials in 2012. Regarding elk that are hunted for food and sport, the state of Wyoming's own wildlife division reports that there are more elk (too many!) in Wyoming today than existed BEFORE wolves returned to the state. Elk can be more challenging to hunt as they are now more wary with wolves back on the land where they belong, but the elk are healthier and more numerous with wolves in Wyoming. 

And similarly, according to each state's own wildlife division statistics in Idaho and Montana, elk are more numerous, with wolves roaming free in those states, too!  Again, wolf demonization and persecution is not about truth and justice, it's about "control" and "tradition" for these 19th century American wolf killers.

For this ACTION, this is what YOU can do to defend the innocent, ecologically vital and beautiful wolves of Wyoming:

1. Call and email Wyoming Governor Matt Mead.
Phone: 1-307-777-7434.

2. Call and email President Obama at the White House.
Phone: 1-202-456-1111

The United States keeps telling itself what a great nation it is.  It will not be a truly great nation until the perverse and violent American "tradition" of demonizing, persecuting and slaughtering the continent's native wolves and other native wildlife is finally and permanently stopped. It's long overdue that our supposed leaders hear and act upon the humane, respectful  and wildlife-loving majority opinion that has evolved in the hearts and minds of decent Americans.
We are demanding that America finally and permanently respect and protect the continent's ecologically vital, innocent and beautiful wolves throughout the Rockies and throughout all of America. We demand respect and protection of all the continent's native wildlife. In a matter that is intimately related, we want this country to finally atone for the violence and persecution that was also directed against the continent's native people. A major step towards that inescapable atonement is to finally stop the mass killing and unacceptable violence still directed against the continent's native wildlife, including our amazing and beautiful wolves. 

Stay Tuned. More Actions Are coming.

Thank you, for each and every wolf in Wyoming and throughout America,
Robert Goldman
