Deadline Approaches for Wyoming Wolves

Gray Wolf (Jim Brandeburg/National Geographic Stock) If the Obama Administration's plan for Wyoming wolves is not changed, wolves could be shot on sight in some of the state's best available wolf habitat -- even on some national forests and other public lands in Wyoming owned by the American taxpayer.

But there's still time to speak out against this terrible plan before the January 13th deadline -- and to help reach our goal of sending 100,000 comments.

If you haven't already, tell the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that you oppose the delisting of Wyoming's wolves under the current proposed state management plan.
