Target: Music legend Iggy Pop
Goal: Applaud Iggy Pop for taking action and being a voice for Michigan’s wolf population
Iggy Pop, famed musician and member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, is standing up for wolves that are in danger of being hunted. Pop has endorsed the ‘Keep Michigan Wolves Protected’ campaign to stop wolf hunting for sport. The group aims to stop ‘trophy’ hunting of wolves in Michigan and involve the public in laws involving hunting wildlife.
Michigan’s wolves have been protected since 1965; this protection has unfortunately been lifted recently by the Michigan Natural Resource Commission. Iggy Pop sent a letter to Michigan’s Governor Rick Snyder proclaiming his dismay about the lifted protection, and also mentioned that the reasons behind the reinstated wolf hunting were lies and half-truths. The lies that recently surfaced were made-up scenarios, by lawmakers, that made wolves seem like a nuisance to Michigan residents, such as a wolf sighting outside of a daycare that never occurred.
Iggy Pop is a Michigan native and an avid animal lover. He encourages all of his fans in Michigan to stand up with him and fight against wolf hunting for sport. By signing this petition you will provide support for Iggy Pop and give him signatures to take to Michigan’s Governor; help Iggy Pop save Michigan’s wolf population.
Dear Iggy Pop,
You have been a strong voice for wolves in Michigan. Your recent letter to Governor Rick Snyder explaining your disappointment was well researched and heartfelt. You understand that hunting wolves for sport is barbaric and should not be tolerated. They are majestic animals that deserve respect and a peaceful existence.
I support your efforts to save the wolves of Michigan. You asked your fans in Michigan to show their support by gathering signatures aiming to overturn the decision to allow wolves to be hunted. I sincerely hope that you, and the other members of ‘Keep Michigan Wolves Protected’ will gain enough support in Michigan for wolves to once again be protected. Please take my signature, along with all of the others that this petition generates, to Governor Rick Snyder.
Michigan’s wolves are loved by many and should be respected and protected. Thank you for your valiant efforts to make a peaceful existence a reality for the wolves.
[Your Name Here]
