I need to ask a favor of my fellow LRH members.
Below are links detailing my issues with the Red Wolf reintroduction in NC. The wildlife on my farm has been decimated by wolves and now by the resulting hybrids as coyotes have migrated heavily into the red wolf territory. The two are readily interbreeding. The Defenders of Wildlife are actually now suing our state to stop killing coyotes! The situation is critical. Wolves are no longer just a Western problem.
You guys have a vast knowledge of the impacts of wolves on wildlife. Most North Carolinians do not have this first hand experience. Please read and comment on the following links:
North Carolinians need to hear what you have seen first hand.
Please then contact NC officials and warn them:
Here is a link to the contact information for our Wildlife Commissioners:
Here is a link to the NCWRC Staff contact information:
The red wolf program in NC is failing dramatically. We now may have an opportunity to end the program. It started 26 years ago with 4 breeding pairs, peaked at 21 and has now declined to just 8 breeding pairs as coyotes have invaded the wolf territories. USFWS confirms that 40% of the wolf packs contain coyotes. The result is that USFWS has created a new super coyote that is out of control and rapidly destroying our wildlife. The Defenders of Wildlife and the Red Wolf Coalition now are filing for an injunction to protect coyotes!!!!
Thank you so much for your help.
