Don’t Kill Female Grizzly Bears And Cubs to Save Livestock

Target: Aurelia Skipwith, Director of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Goal: Recant decision to kill up to 72 grizzly bears, including females and cubs.

Up to 72 threatened grizzly bears, including females and cubs, are soon to be killed in Wyoming’s Bridger-Teton National Forest with authorization from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. This decision comes in an effort to appease livestock owners who wish to use the area for grazing. Demand an immediate repeal of this critical decision.

“It’s outrageous that the feds are caving to the livestock industry by allowing dozens of grizzly bears to be killed in their crucial habitats on public lands. Yellowstone’s grizzly bears are a national treasure that should be protected, not slaughtered,” stated Andrea Santarsiere, a senior attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity. The agency is suing the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service for their recent decision to allow up to 72 grizzly bears to be killed near Yellowstone National Park over the 10-year life of the reauthorized grazing program. This order does not put limits on how many of those bears can be females or cubs, even though they reside in the area, and turns an important habitat into a warzone for this species.

Grizzly bears remain threatened under the Endangered Species Act and this blatant disregard for their wellbeing is unacceptable. Sign below and demand that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recant this fatal decision.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Director Skipwith,

Your recent authorization for the killing of up to 72 grizzly bears in Wyoming’s Bridger-Teton National Forest is one that could threaten the survival of this species. The order does not put a limit on how many of those bears can be females or cubs, both of which frequent the habitat in question.

Appeasing livestock owners is not a reason to cut short the life of this majestic species. There are effective ways that would keep all of the animals safe and jumping straight to execution is rash and unjust. I demand that you consider other options and give Yellowstone’s grizzly bears a fighting chance.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    We need to aid and support the recovery of these aniamls, not preserve the monied interests of filthy rich cattle ranchers. But greed knows no mitagation and you will never be satisfied, even when hundreds of thousands of people die because of the insane mistreatment we have towards anything wild and natural.
