Congratulations to the United States House of Representatives for passing the bill to remove wolves from protection under The Endangered Species Act. The bill now goes to the Senate where it must pass to make this needed change.
The more aggressive, larger, and heavier Canadian and Mexican wolves, introduced by the United States Fish & Wildlife Service, have secured the demise of the smaller, native wolf species across the U.S.
Wolves in their continually increasing territories are predators to deer, elk, moose, domestic pets and sometimes humans. Diseases, which include the hydatid tapeworm and rabies, are carried by wolf populations and passed on to domestic animals and then to humans.
Call your senators and ask them to vote to uphold the House bill.
