Help Stop the Killing of Wolves in Washington State

WRITE TO GREGOIRE TO STOP WOLF KILL WED IN WA
Washington’s newest wolf pack — only one of eight in the state — will be shot and killed, one by one unless we speak out.

Just a few months ago, we celebrated the discovery of Washington State’s eighth wolf pack, named the Wedge pack for the wedge-shaped part of the county between the Kettle River on the west and the Columbia River on the east. However, this newly discovered pack has been unjustly blamed for attacking livestock, and the state has issued a kill order for all the adults in the pack.
Washington State officials are bending under pressure from a single disgruntled rancher — and despite expert claims that wolves were not responsible for injuring his livestock, officials have refused to call off the killing.
They’ve already shot one female from the pack, and the state is set to deploy a team of sharp-shooters as early as tomorrow morning to finish off the grisly job — unless you help raise enough of an outcry to stop them.
Call or write to Washington Governor Christine Gregoire and Director of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Phil Anderson and tell them: don’t kill any more members of the Wedge pack. This pack is just one of only eight in your state, and it’s your responsibility to protect them. The future of wolves in Washington State may hinge on the precedents being set by you today.

Ask Airlines to Stop Transporting Nonhuman Primates

Many airlines have discontinued shipping nonhuman primates bound for biomedical research laboratories. However, a few are still engaging in this practice. We urge you to write airlines still engaging in the practice of transporting nonhuman primates bound for biomedical research laboratories and ask them to change their policies.

About rachel

Hi, I'm Rachel and I've been active with NARN as long as I've been vegan 13 years! I made the choice to be vegan after learning about what happens to egg laying chickens and dairy cows. I had previously been vegetarian for 7 years because I finally made the connection that beef came from cows and pork came from pigs (duh, I know). I didn't want my food choices to cause the death of an animal. It just seems like common sense to not eat animals if you care at all about animals, the earth or your fellow human beings. I became active with NARN because after I found out about the atrocities happening to animals, I felt that I had to do what I could to help stop these injustices. NARN is local, puts the animals first, and networks with other groups. We aren't worried about getting credit - just helping the animals. One of my favorite quotes is: "I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all." ~ Leo Rosten and "Progress in every age results only from the fact that there are some men and women who refuse to believe that what they know to be right cannot be done." --Russell W. Davenport
