Three-legged Western Wolves on their 'Last Legs' Struggle to Feed Pups
By Michael A. Guy
Please donate whatever you can afford today to help save these amazing animals.
This is a reprint of a letter I received from DEFENDERS OF WILDLIFE. I have very little $ on disability but I'm giving at least $10 in October. The last thing I want to do is let "Big Game hunters, gun-enthusiasts and Rancher lobbyists" a chance at shooting at these pathetic three-legged wolf parents desperately trying to feed their pups. These poor animals are not just on three legs but ON THEIR LAST LEGS literally. And how do we supposedly compassionate and successful humans respond? We try to kill them to enhance our profits! SAD comment on OUR MORALITY!
Don't Agree? Then donate a little and prove it!
The wolves of the New Mexico’s Middle Fork pack are some of the most endangered animals on the planet.
And anti-wolf forces are working to once again eradicate their entire species in the wild.
The mother and father of the pack have both lost a leg to painful human-made traps -- leaving each with just three legs. A punishing drought in the Middle Fork pack’s home range makes the search for food to feed their four pups more and more challenging.
Please donate today to help protect these most endangered animals.
The Middle Fork wolves really are extremely important. As one of just two breeding pairs in New Mexico for the nearly extinct Mexican gray wolf (the lobo), the Middle Fork pack’s alpha male (AM871) and female (AF861) are critical to the future of the wolf in the Southwest.
You can help protect the Middle Fork wolves. Your tax-deductible donation to DEFENDERS OF WILDLIFE will help us protect one of the last packs of Western Lobo Wolves
Demand that the federal government not cave into the pressure of local wolf-haters to kill these wolves.
Use proven on-the-ground techniques to keep these wolves away from livestock and away from the guns of those who would shoot them.
Post rewards to bring poachers who kill endangered lobos to justice.
Twice this summer, state agencies have threatened to remove the Middle Fork wolves from the wild -- a move would see these wolves either killed or consigned to captivity for the rest of their lives and would wreck efforts to rescue lobos from a second extinction in the wild.
So far, Defenders of Wildlife and our allies have been able to convince officials to keep the Middle Fork wolves where they belong -- in the wild. But ensuring the safety of these wolves -- and saving lobos as a species from extinction in the wild -- is a daily fight that we need your help to win.
The Middle Fork wolves are some of the most important wolves in the country, but we need your help to save them. Please donate today to help us save this pack and the species whose survival in the wild may well depend on their fate.
