We just learned that last week, a private landowner shot and killed a six-year old female wolf – one of only 10 breeding females left in the wild. It is likely that the wolf had puppies at the time of her death.
The fate of those pups is unknown, but it’s unlikely that they’ll be able to survive without her.
Perhaps most outrageous of all, the wolf was shot with the express permission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS). Defenders will take whatever action is necessary to stop future tragedies like this one, and secure red wolves’ future in the wild.
Won’t you take action today and call on FWS to stop all lethal measures against critically endangered red wolves?
