Defenders of Wildlife Take Action

Tell Secretary Jewell to Stop the Planned Commercial Killing Competition!

Gray Wolf, © Barrett HedgesThe Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has just approved a commercial wolf and predator-killing derby in Idaho. What’s worse, the agency has authorized the event to take place once every year for the next five years!

Contests like these have no place in the 21st Century. They are a throwback to times past, when wolves and other predators were seen as vermin. The federal government shouldn’t be encouraging and endorsing this outdated thinking, and it certainly shouldn’t be hosting thrill kill competitions.

Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell, has the power to reverse this decision. She needs to use it.

Please take immediate action, and tell Secretary Jewell to stop this atrocious event!
