Dear Wildlife Supporter,

Wildlife heroes -- and the wildlife they’re trying to save -- need your help!

The Logan County Commission has filed suit to force ranchers Bette and Larry Haverfield and other wildlife-friendly landowners to destroy several prairie dog towns in the county, including Kansas’s largest. A court hearing will be held this Friday.

Please attend and show your support for prairie wildlife and the landowners who want to preserve it.

What: Court Hearing for Prairie Dogs
Where: Logan County Courthouse, 710 W 2nd St, Oakley, Kansas
When: Friday, February 2nd (Groundhog Day!) at 9:00 AM (Central Time)

The Haverfields and their fellow wildlife-friendly landowners have seen firsthand the diversity of wildlife that prairie dog towns bring. From hawks to swift foxes, badgers to burrowing owls, plenty of wildlife finds safe harbor on the ranch.

Now you can show your support for these landowners who are standing up for the wildlife on their lands. Attend the court hearing at the Logan County Courthouse -- but please be respectful; make no noise, clapping or outbursts.

It is important for wildlife supporters to show our presence in the courthouse to counter the all-out effort by the Farm Bureau to pack the courtroom with an anti-wildlife crowd. We can send a powerful message to the County Commissioners and state legislators that Kansans care about their state's wildlife.

Arrive early if you can -- we will have stickers available for you to show that you support the landowners and wildlife.

If you would like more information, please email me at jproctor@defenders.org or call (303) 825-0918.

I hope to see you there!

Jonathan Proctor Sincerely,

Jonathan Proctor
