Urge President Obama to Stand Up for Wolves

From Defenders of Wildlife...

On Thursday -- just one year after the famous wolf Limpy was shot and killed just outside Yellowstone National Park -- President Obama’s pick as Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, has taken it upon himself to eliminate Endangered Species Act protections for wolves in Greater Yellowstone, the Northern Rockies and other parts of the American West!

As a result of Salazar’s action, more than 1,000 wolves in Idaho and Montana could be killed by people like Idaho Governor Butch Otter, who recently reaffirmed that he wants to be one of the first to shoot a wolf.

Thanks to the help of supporters like you, Defenders of Wildlife is already preparing legal action to save the lives of other wolves like Limpy. But today I need your help to let as many people as possible know about this awful plan before May 4th, when the federal protections are lifted and the wolf killing can resume.
