As part of their “Monster Week” ratings grab, Animal Planet is airing a lurid, factually absurd, and shameful special called “Man-Eating Super Wolves.” The cable channel has scheduled multiple airings of the show.
This despicable distortion of reality could not come at a worse time for wolves. Wolf-haters have mounted extermination efforts in Idaho and elsewhere, threatening to reverse two decades of hard-won progress for one of America’s most beloved wild animals.
TV channels like Animal Planet must accept responsibility for the real-world consequences of airing shoddy tabloid pseudo-documentaries.
Demand that Animal Planet issue a public apology for gross negligence and damaging information that was aired on National Television.
Immediately cease airing anti-wolf special
Dear Animal Planet Executives,
Thank You, [Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
