Don’t Hunt Grizzly Bears

Target: Mark Anselmi, President of the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission

Goal: Reverse decision to allow hunting of grizzly bears.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission unanimously voted to reinstate the hunting of grizzly bears, allowing as many as 22 bears to be killed in the Yellowstone area. The state of Wyoming considers the grizzly bear population to be recovered enough to take the animals off the endangered species list, along with allowing trophy hunting of the precious bears. The Sierra Club issued a statement calling the vote a “misguided proposal” that will undoubtedly reverse 40 years of population restoration efforts.

Populations of grizzlies were restored enough in 2016 that the US Fish and Wildlife Service declared they were ready to be taken off the endangered list, but many conservation groups said the move was premature. In 2017, just a year later, 11% of the grizzlies in Yellowstone died. Sign the petition below to send the message that we can’t afford to lose any more grizzlies.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Anselmi,

The state of Wyoming should be ashamed of how it has treated wildlife on a legislative level. Why is it that the first response to taking an animal off the endangered species is to allow trophy hunting of that same animal? There is no reason we should be opening up hunting season on a recently endangered species.

Grizzly populations are vital to keeping our ecosystem balanced, and without them, Wyoming and the United States wouldn’t have the same wildlife that makes these areas so uniquely important.We need to protect our animals, not hang them from our walls. We implore you to reverse the decision to reinstate hunting of grizzlies.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Stop the senseless stupid hunting! These bears are vital to the planet! On the other hand, there are millions of incompetent people! Absolutely clueless to what really matters!

  2. Can’t you get your rocks off any other way than killing? Seriously, therapy, animal photography, sex? Don’t make the Grizzly or any other animal pay with their lives for your unhealthy fetish.

  3. Please consider this important request to help the survival of these bears. Signed @718 signatures.

  4. There is no good reason to kill these innocent animals other than for greed & just to see an animal killed. Stop this horrible practice & leave the bears alone. They are vital to our eco system.

  5. END THE PROPOSED HUNTS ON THE GREAT GRIZZLY BEARS NOW.

    Hunting is wrong and needs to be stopped!! Stop hunting grizzlies and every other animal! let them live they’re lives, safe and sound!

  7. Grizzlies and all (pointlessly) hunted animals are creatures of God!
    Your actions are nothing less but spitting into the Face of God.
    May no mercy be shown on all until you learned your lesson!

  8. THOSE DAMN IDIOTIC HUNTERS NEED TO GET A LIFE AND STOP KILLING ANIMALS FOR FUN. I HOPE THAT ONE DAY SOON THE TABLES WILL BE TURNED ON THOSE COWARDS!
