phone WI's US Senator Tammy Baldwin at (202) 224-5653 and urge her to keep
wolves protected in Wisconsin! Sen. Baldwin is at this moment "calling on
Congressional leadership and my colleagues in the United States Senate to pass
legislation to delist the wolf and return management to the state by the end of
this year." (Read Sen. Baldwin's 11/18/16 article "Washington should
act on Wisconsins wolf problem" here.)
you need to say is, "Please keep wolves protected in Wisconsin;
please do NOT remove federal protections for wolves." The message
will be noted by Senator Baldwin's staff and relayed to her.
prepared to give your name, address, and phone number. Please, ALWAYS be polite
and respectful. Name-calling, and rude or abusive calls will hurt, rather than
help, our cause.
you, like many of us, are hesitant about calling because you don't know what to
expect, there is a very good article called "Shy Person's Guide to Calling
you can read it here!
simple message above is enough, but if you want to add to it, here are some key
talking points you might share:
Removing federal protections for
wolves is premature, as wolves have barely recovered to their historic range in
the Great Lakes and elsewhere.
On top of that, they face
numerous threats including habitat loss, disease, and poaching.
Here in Wisconsin, aggressive
trophy hunters use exceptionally cruel methods, including hounding. Tracking
and trailing wolves with hounds leads to potentially disastrous encounters, and
is in our opinion no more than legalized dog- fighting.
Remind Senator Baldwin that the majority of Wisconsinites want
wolves protected and ask her to stay strong in protecting them.
Ask Sen. Baldwin
NOT to delist wolves through Congressional intervention - science not politics
should dictate wildlife management.
