Stop the Killing of Wolf Pups and Bear Cubs in Their Dens

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

Goal: Outlaw the senseless killing of wolves and bears by hunters.

The Trump administration has recently rolled back hunting restrictions in Alaska, allowing hunters to lure wolf pups and brown bear cubs from their dens for the express purpose of shooting them. The administration has been fighting to lift these restrictions for years, despite many protests from animal conservationists and environmental lobbyists, and now they have gotten their way.

This is unacceptable. Wolves and bears are heavily threatened in the United States, their numbers being at dangerously low levels for years now. To some people, they are dangerous predators who “need” to be put down for the sake of human safety. Others see them as hunting trophies to show off to their friends. Regardless of their reasons, selfish humans have killed far too many wolves and bears, and now they have permission to kill innocent babies as well.

This cannot stand. We must put these restrictions back in place as soon as possible to prevent wolf and brown bear populations from shrinking. Sign this petition to demand the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service overturn this decision immediately.


Dear Director Skipwith,

The Trump administration’s lifting of the ban on shooting wolf pups and bear cubs in their dens is completely unacceptable. Wolves and bears are two heavily threatened species, seen as predators who “need” to be put down for the sake of human safety or as trophies by hunters with the desire to show off to their friends. With the ban lifted, their numbers will drop even lower.

You must put the regulations back in place immediately. Not only is this another self-serving move on Trump’s part to destroy the environment, but luring innocent baby animals from their homes with treats in order to kill them is beyond disgusting. You cannot let the administration legalize this contempt for wildlife. Reverse this decision.
