And finally, what we can do to help (from the Natural Resources Defense Council )

We need you to be "quicker on the draw" than the Bush Administration to prevent the senseless slaughter of Rocky Mountain wolves. All you have to do is click -- and you'll instantly send an Official Citizen Comment that opposes the Administration's plan to strip Greater Yellowstone's wolves of their federal protection and leave them at the mercy of Wyoming and Idaho.

Already, state officials are circling, waiting for approval to kill hundreds of gray wolves in Yellowstone's wild country and central Idaho. The governor of Idaho himself said, "I'm prepared to bid for that first ticket to shoot a wolf myself." Appalled by this impending massacre, NRDC Members and online activists are fighting back -- at their computer keyboards -- and have submitted over 50,000 Official Citizen Comments in just 2 days! But we need to barrage the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service with even more comments -- our goal is 200,000 -- and that's why we need you to submit your Official Citizen Comment RIGHT NOW.

With only weeks to go before the public comment period ends on May 9, we need every NRDC Member and online activist to take action on the wolf's behalf. The comeback of the gray wolf from the brink of extinction in Greater Yellowstone is one of our country's greatest environmental success stories. Don't let the Bush Administration destroy that success! Click here now before the hunters are allowed to pull the trigger: Click Here

Sincerely, Frances Beinecke President NRDC Action Fund

I signed. I've been having a real problem with the gun nuts that have come crawling out of the woodwork since last week's shootings, so I'm especially more than happy to sign anything that opposes hunting.
