Save Yellowstone's iconic wolf packs from hunting

Dear Fish and Wildlife Commission,

As you consider the new proposed wolf hunting and trapping regulations for 2022, we urge you to enact the strongest protections possible for the gray wolf. Montana's wolves are a keystone species, crucial for the state's ecosystems. Wolf Management Units 313 and 316 bordering Yellowstone National Park should be especially protected to ensure the park's wolf packs remain intact.

This last hunting season was devastating for all of Yellowstone's wolves that unknowingly crossed the border into Montana, and we can't let another hunting season further harm this iconic population.

The current proposed regulations are certainly a step in the right direction, but we urge you to take the next step and ban the hunting of wolves throughout Montana.
