1. Speak Out Against Idaho's Wolf Torture
After losing protection under the Endangered Species Act, the war on wolves in the Rocky Mountains has intensified. Photos have recently surfaced of a wolf that is believed to have been tortured in a trap before being killed with the involvement of the U.S. Forest Service. The Center for Biological diversity is calling for an investigation of Josh Bransford, who posted photos of a wolf who had been trapped near a road and non-fatally shot "by several guys", which violates the state's animal cruelty laws.
Sign the petition asking Idaho's Department of Fish and Game and the head of the U.S. Forest Service to investigate the matter and take the appropriate disciplinary action.
