#TWEETSTORM Tuesday May 12 @Congress #KeepWolvesListed poster design by Britt Ricci
Tuesday May 6  #TWEETSTORM Event- original tweet (this will be my Tweet) @SenatorBaldwin @SenRonJohnson @RepRonKind oppose anti-wolf Legislation HR843 / HR884 #KeepWolvesListed
America’s wolves are under attack.
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 type of anti wolf legislation will allow states to manage wolves with reckless trophy hunts and this will  put wolves at risk…a species at the brink of extinction.
There’s now a third anti wolf bill being prepared in congress. 
Let’s make it very clear to Washington D.C. 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
