Rider Targets Wolves -- Wisconsin, Take Action
Attached to this year's annual spending bill (funding agencies like the EPA and Fish and Wildlife Service) is a disastrous provision that would strip federal protections from wolves in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan and Wyoming.
Republicans have been trying to sneak this rider through for years, and now, caving to the pressure of those anti-wildlife forces, Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) has publicly offered her support. We can't let it happen. Provisions like this undermine science, democracy and our environmental laws -- and if this one goes through, hunters and industry will declare open season on wolves.
If you live in Wisconsin, please call Sen. Baldwin and urge her to withdraw her support from this devious and destructive legislation. Everyone else, stay tuned for more ways to take action.
