Little Red Rider and the Big Bad Wolf Hunt

The Huffington Post

by Brenda Peterson

The wolf hunt that begins this week in Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana is as grim as the Grimm's fairy tale. Ever since the bloody wolf-delisting rider was slipped into a recent budget bill, this myth is driving wildlife politics. And it's still the same ending: The wolf must die. The heroic hunter rescues the grandmother and little girl. Everyone lives happily ever after, except, of course, the wild wolf.

Rally for Wolves on August 28th in Hamilton, Montana

Please join us on Sunday, August 28 in Hamilton, Montana to protest the wolf slaughter that's set to begin on September 3, 2011 in that state.

Friends of Animals is enacting a complete economic boycott of the three states that are sponsoring wolf kills-Montana, Idaho and Wyoming. We're asking our supporters not to travel to, or buy goods from, any of the offending states until wolves are not slaughtered and, once again, offered federal protection-and this includes a boycott of Yellowstone National Park, which is part of all three states.

Motion to bar Montana Idaho wolf hunts denied

San Antonio Express-News

August 25, 2011

HELENA, Mont. (AP) - A federal appeals court on Thursday denied a request by environmental groups to halt wolf hunts that are scheduled to begin next week in Idaho and Montana.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals denied the request by the Alliance for the Wild Rockies and other groups. The groups were seeking to cancel the hunts while the court considers a challenge to congressional action in April that stripped wolves of federal protections in Montana and Idaho, and in parts of Washington, Oregon and Utah.
