Thursday January 29, 2015 #TWEETSTORM Event- original tweet (this will be my Tweet) @SenatorBaldwin @RepRonKind don’t sponsor legislation to delist wolves Wyoming, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan #KeepWolvesListed
Big money, big hunt clubs are on the move to pressure congress to delist wolves nationwide and they don’t want that subject to judicial review. And this will allow states to manage wolves (we all know what that means).
Let’s make it very clear to Washington D.C. We want to keep the dirty politics out of the Endangered Species Act. Our rare and endangered wildlife are not a bargaining chip for big money! #KeepWolvesListed join the #TWEETSTORM @ your US senator and @ your US House of Representative

Why this #TWEETSTORM @congress:
The following is just one news article about big hunt clubs pressuring congress to delist wolves nationwide and to stop it from any judicial review …read the following quote from an article confirming new legislation that would delist wolves and big hunt club:
Benishek To Propose New Wolf Hunting Bill Written By: kreport|January 12, 2015
“Legislation to negate a federal judge’s ruling that prevents wolf hunting in Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota is expected to be introduced in the U.S. House this month.”
“The measure will be co=sponsored by Congressman Dan Benishek, Reid Ribble of Wisconsin and Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming.”
“Benishek says it will allow the states to again manage the wolf population including hunting and trapping.”
“The legislation would allow the western Great Lakes states to do their own management of wolves.” http://www.keweenawreport.com/news/benishek-to-propose-new-wolf-hunting-bill/
And from a big hunting organization:
“On Tuesday morning, the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation sent a resolution to the media, basically saying that the court decision expecting wolves to be restored to their original range in the eastern U.S. before they can be delisted is bonkers.”
“They note that in 2011, to address similar situations involving state management of wolves in Idaho and Montana, Congress passed a law directing the Fish and Wildlife Service to reissue its rule delisting wolves and prohibited a judicial review of that rule.”
“The federation has now called for Congress to do the same for Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan.”
“Maybe that would end the cycle of federal court cases involving Wisconsin wolves.” Above cited From this article…http://www.leadertelegram.com/features/getting_out/article_789630b4-914e-11e4-9bb4-ef30cbd3a36a.html?mode=jqm
[please note: If you are not on Twitter call your US senator and US House of Representatives on 01/20/15 to tell them: not to sponsor any legislation to delist wolves nationwide or in the Great Lakes. Keep wolves listed]
