I REFUSE TO GIVE UP HOPE!


guardian

About 2 years ago I learned of the planned trapping and capture of a certain wolf – Guardian M1396 – in New Mexico! So I took it upon myself to fight this decision to no end. I created several petitions on several online petition sites, as well as personally made phone calls & letters & emails to Dr. Benjamin Tuggle, Regional Director at RDTuggle@fws.gov but never ONCE did I get any type of response, other than the following from 1 of the petition sites #17 months ago: “Sad to say despite all our efforts to prevent it, Wolf M1396 was trapped and captured on May 24, 2016 so we are closing this petition – thank you for all who cared enough to sign this! Blessings…”

But I did NOT give up. about a year ago I started over and created a NEW petition with MUCH more exposure:

This email is in regards to a petition I initiated a few months ago in an attempt to get Guardian M1396 released back to his mate and pups! There are over 72,000 signatures on it as we speak! It has been featured on several news broadcasts within the Albuquerque, New Mexico area. Please find the url link to the petition itself and the url to the pdf containing the signatures at the bottom! We are trying to get some more exposure for this matter and get this wolf returned to his pack!

“Guardian is just the latest example of how the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service prioritize the will of ranchers over the needs of wolves. I think our past actions of spending taxpayer funds to eradicate wolves is shameful. The reintroduction program is an important step to right that wrong, but only if wolves are allowed to live freely across wild federal lands of the Southeast. Guardian needs to be returned to his pack. Without their alpha, the Luna group is at risk.”

FOR THE LOVE OF WOLVES

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service recently removed Guardian (wolf M1396) from his mate and pups in the Gila National Forest in New Mexico. Guardian is the alpha of the Luna group, and his loss threatens the progress of the Mexican gray wolf recovery program, which was just starting to see some gains.
With as few as 97 Mexican wolves in the wild, it’s hard to see why Guardian was trapped and removed from the wild simply for killing livestock to feed his starving pups and mate. Ranchers in the area share much of the blame for the loss of their animals, as they were not removing carcasses that wolves did not kill, which led to scavenging, which led to depredation.

Sign the petition and urge the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to release Guardian back into the wild immediately to help his pack and the overall population survive!

When you removed Guardian (wolf M1396) from his mate and pups you threatened the progress of the Mexican grey wolf recovery program, which was just starting to see some gains. The Luna pack has lost their alpha male due to your actions, threatening the group’s survival.

With much thanks to my contact from http://www.thepetitionsite.com/ the NEW petition gathered not only ONLINE support – but televised support as well. BUT, still no reply from Dr. Tuggle!

I am planning a 3rd attempt at this because that is how dedicated I am to this wolf and his freedom – he MUST be returned to the Luna wolf pack in New Mexico – that is if he has NOT already been killed, which is very possible! So I am begging ALL OF YOU WOLF LOVERS for support on this! I will continue to work on a brand new petition to publish by this weekend (HOPEFULLY)!

Godbless!

Guardian – I REFUSE TO GIVE UP ON YOU!

 

CAN I COUNT ON YOUR SUPPORT TOO?
