There still are several states in the United States where wolves live. This is actually quite surprising, since they nearly had been hunted down to extinction. Only a very few were left and, thanks to public awareness, the wolf population has grown again.
If you live in Michigan or know someone in Michigan, please let them know that there is a chance to save the lives of wolves in this state.
“On November 4, Michigan voters will decide whether wolves live or die.
In 1974, just six wolves remained in Michigan.
They had been hunted for bounties, poisoned and driven to the brink of extinction. Thankfully, at this critical moment, they were listed under the Endangered Species Act, and wolves were finally protected. It has taken nearly 40 years to restore the population.
But wolves are once again caught in the crosshairs. Recently stripped of their federal protections, state by state has opened fire on wolves.
We did not save the wolves from extinction just so the trophy hunters and fur trappers would have more of them to kill.”
