Re: See a wolf... what would you do?

Below is an email received today from Big Game Forever detailing federal plans to establish wolves in the Southern Rockies.

Please take a moment to read and research and then please do the 3 items under

"Here is how you can help stop these plans:"


-------------------------------------------------------------------
Folks,

I am sending you the official plan from the federal government to place wolves in the Southern Rockies. Every sportsman in America needs to see this plan. These plans will spread wolves into 97.5% of all elk in America.

Here is what they are doing: Baca National Wildlife refuge in Southern Colorado will have wolves transplanted in 2012 if portions of this plan are implemented. Baca is much, much smaller than Yellowstone. It is only 70 Miles from Northern New Mexico. It is only 250 Miles from Southern Utah and Northern Arizona. Wolves can travel that far in less than a week.

Yellowstone National Park was used to introduce wolves to the Northern Rockies. Without your help, history will repeat itself this year in the Southern Rockies.

See the official plan for yourself at the link below (look on page 8, bottom of the first column where they mention the introduction of wolves in Colorado's Baca National Wildlife Refuge).

http://www.fws.gov/alamosa/planning/...date2_web2.pdf

Here is how you can help stop these plans:

(1) Spread the word: Send this email to 10 friends and ask them to forward this email to more friends.

(2) Join the Fight: If you haven't already, sign the online petition to stop these wolf expansion plans at Big Game Forever - Protecting Big Game Abundance for Future Generations

(3) Take Action: It only takes 30 seconds to send a message to your representatives in Congress to stop these plans. Simply go to Big Game Forever - Protecting Big Game Abundance for Future Generations and click the “Take Action” button to send a message in support of two bills in Congress, S. 249 and H.R. 509, the Big Game and Livestock Protection Act. Without S. 249 and H.R. 509, it will be very difficult to slow down these plans to expand wolves throughout 97.5% of all elk in America.

Without a very substantial outcry from sportsmen and livestock owners, wolves will very likely be placed in Colorado this year. While attempts have been made to dismiss the use of wolves as "not the preferred alternative," now that they are an official part of the plan, we are one very small step away from having wolves introduced into Baca National Widlife Refuge. We can't leave this to chance.

Over 10,000 messages have already been sent to Congress to stop the plans to put wolves in the Baca, but we need many, many more. Especially from the 600,0000 hunters in Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah.

We need all need to join the fight to stop this from happening. Remember, Idaho's elk harvest has been cut in half by wolves. Wolves have been a huge burden for livestock producers. Without substantial changes to the underlying statutes, it is a bad idea to spread these failed policies to the Southern Rockies.

Here are some news articles about these plans for wolves in Colorado.

We are continuing to research this developing story. We will keep you apprised as developments arise.

Thanks for your willingness to join the fight to protect our ranching and outdoor heritage.

Re: See a wolf... what would you do?

I really wish people like yourself would read stuff before they put things like this on a website! Have you read the plan that Benson/BGF is crying wolf over? I have and there are 3 different possibilities with each being multifaceted in their approach. There is ONE sentence in Plan C that mentions a possible LOOK at introducing wolves, but the major way that they are looking at reducing the elk population is hunting. The comment period is open until 2/25 and nothing will be finalized until 2014 at the earliest. For Ryan Benson to put that email out saying they are going to introduce wolves into the baca this year is a bald-faced lie and an attempt to cry wolf and get more money in the BFG coffers like they did when things were going on trying to delist them up north. BGF and SFW went under the table and tried to bust the plan, but then when it went through, was finalized, and they were delisted the BFG and SFW tried to take credit for it. If people would do a little research, they would find everything I have stated in this post is 100% fact! This BGF baloney is all over the internet on hunting websites with ridiculous lies and it's getting so they are as bad at PETA in putting out BS trying to increase their membership numbers with scare tactics!!!

Re: See a wolf... what would you do?

After seeing how the introduction of wolves to the Yellowstone area and ID was accomplished, with 'rules' and numbers and timelines changing so often, I don't have much faith in the feds doing what they say they are going to do or not going to do, especially with extreme environmentalist groups pushing their lawsuit happy agenda.

If it is in the plan at all, you can also bet the extreme environmentalist groups will be pushing it and suing as necessary. We've seen this before. "Oh...were only going to have 300 wolves." Sound familiar? Don't let them get a foot in the door is what I say.

There are already wolves in the southwest, the feds don't need to introduce anymore.

You can bet this list of folks from the Grand Canyon Wolf Recovery Project ( Grand Canyon Wolf Recovery Project - Coalition Partners -- check out this list) will be watching this closely.

Topgun, what do you think we should do?

Give us links to your research and help us understand your point of view, OK?
