Some U.S. House representatives attempt to use must-pass spending bills as an opportunity to erase Endangered Species Act protections for wolves across the rest of the Lower 48.
Even today, there are only a few thousand wolves, roaming a tiny fraction of their historic range. That precarious population is already threatened by radically expanded hunting and trapping in states like Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.
If they succeed, it will mean more hunts like what we saw in Wisconsin in 2021, when one out of every five of the state’s wolves was killed in just 60 hours. Tell your U.S. House representative: Wolves are treasures, not trophies.
