When you "Invent" a Woof, you must then "Invent" a Species to "Name It"...  "Canis Counterfeit"!!

It appears the Red Wolf Coalition has some sort of issue with anyone other than themselves writing a petition to illustrate the facts.  Citizens Science drafted a Petition to survey the "Human Dimension" Element of the Adaptive Killing of Nursing Pup Management.  Check back shortly as we post the results thus far. 

And we encourage a transparent stakeholder input and comments, as its eclipsed over 1000 in just 10 short hours.











The early results of the "Human Dimension" Study are in...

Now Ms. Liss has "Flip-Flopped" on "Trapping" of Federal Refuges!

Boy, this is getting confusing... AWI Suing in NC to Enforce the use of Steel Leg-Hold Traps on Federal Lands but begging for support to ban it on Federal Refuge Lands!

WOW!!




Dear Humanitarian,

The Refuge from Cruel Trapping Act has been introduced in both the US House of Representatives and the Senate by Rep. Nita Lowey (D-NY) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ). This bill—H.R. 2016/S. 1081—would prohibit the use of body-gripping traps within the National Wildlife Refuge System (NWRS).

Body-gripping traps—such as strangling snares, Conibear traps, and steel-jaw leghold traps—are inhumane and inherently nonselective. These archaic traps indiscriminately injure and kill countless nontarget animals, including raptors, rabbits, endangered and threatened species, and household pets.

Jawed traps slam closed with bone-crushing force on any animal that trips the device, while strangling snares tighten around the neck or body of their victims until death finally ends the torture. Steel-jaw leghold traps are among the most notorious trapping devices. Almost 90 countries have banned their use, but—astonishingly—these and other cruel traps are still allowed in the United States on federal lands intended to protect and conserve our nation's wildlife. Put simply, this cruelty should not be permitted in any place that is called a "refuge."

The NWRS encompasses the most comprehensive and diverse collection of fish and wildlife habitats in the world, and provides a home for more than 380 endangered species. National wildlife refuges are intended to be safe havens for wildlife, but in over half of the 563 national wildlife refuges, trapping is allowed. Millions of Americans visit refuges each year to hike on trails and observe a wide range of wildlife species in their natural habitats. Visitors should be able to enjoy these areas without fear that they or their pets may stumble upon a body-gripping trap or encounter an injured animal languishing in these gruesome devices.

A national Decision Research public opinion poll showed that 79 percent of Americans believe trapping on national wildlife refuges should be prohibited, while 88 percent believe wildlife and habitat preservation should be the highest priority of the refuge system.

Please be sure to share our “Dear Humanitarian” eAlert with family, friends and co-workers, and encourage them to contact their senators and representatives, too. As always, thank you very much for your help!

Sincerely,

Cathy Liss
President
