This is purely a move to "cow tow" to the livestock and hunting lobbies in Colorado. Further, this resolution completely goes against the study CPW commissioned and has supported for over 10 years now. It is now time Coloradans stand up for what they want and what correct science, not political agendas, confirm is best for our state now and in the future.
The Sierra Club is organizing a "pro wolf" rally to be held in Denver at the CPW offices either Jan. 13 or 14, and we ask the citizens of this state to join us in preventing this horrible resolution from being approved by a state public agency whose bylaws state they are to protect and nourish our wildlife here in Colorado. Please visit the Sierra Club website to get current info on the date and time of this very important public rally, http://www.sierraclub.org/rocky-mountain-chapter. Additionally, you can visit this website and go to the conservation tab and under "wolf restoration" you can sign a petition that will show the CPW your support.
We simply cannot allow money and power to rule in this country and in our state. Please speak up and do what is right! The livestock and hunting lobbies are doing horrible things to these amazing and worthy animals and we just cannot continue to allow this to happen in modern times. These resilient animals are trying their best to re-populate after years of genocide at the hands of us humans. I hope to see you at the rally.
