Wolves and Authors…

Hurray! It’s about time these guys came to their senses…On top of this great news, author Jeaniene Frost has agreed to donate the proceeds from her newest short story compilation in the Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance to the Defenders of Wildlife. Please support both the author and the wolves by purchasing this book, or just visit the Defenders of Wildlife and make a donation. In today’s age, we need to do everything we can to preserve what is left of our wildlife.

In Response to Center Suit, Feds Put Wolf Back on Endangered Species List, Abandon Plan to Kill Hundreds of Wolves in Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming

Dear Stacy,

Breaking news! The Bush administration today announced it will abandon its defense of an ill-fated decision to remove the gray wolf in the northern Rockies from the endangered species list, which would allow hundreds of wolves to be killed by hunters and state agencies.

To stop the killings, the Center for Biological Diversity and allies sued the administration, winning a temporary ruling stopping the killing in July. But rather than continue to fight us in court, the administration just announced that it will formally revoke its previous decision and return the wolf to the endangered species list as a fully protected species.

We’re ecstatic about the victory — but our hearts go out to the nearly 100 wolves that were gunned down before we were able to secure the initial legal injunction.

Thanks for your support. This victory could not have been achieved without the help of thousands of Center members who donated their time, money, and voices to save the Northern Rockies’ wolves. And thanks to our litigation allies at Earthjustice, NRDC, and Defenders of Wildlife.
