Nearly 80% of Minnesotans agree that wolves should be protected for future generations. Minnesota is the only state outside of Alaska where wolves never went extinct. These Minnesota wolves are the source population for the recovery of the entire gray wolf species in the US.  Please ensure the wolf population has a secure future in Minnesota.

Minnesota gray wolves were returned to the endangered species list as "threatened" after three reckless wolf hunting and trapping seasons. While no recreational wolf hunting can take place, wolves still face many threats to their existence. Please direct the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to develop a smart and comprehensive wolf plan that reduces wolf deaths from human causes. Public education is needed to dispel centuries-old myths about wolves, so that people are less fearful, less hateful and more tolerant toward wolves.  Better information is needed about the wolf population too.  For example; wolf pack sizes have dropped to an all time low of 4 wolves per pack but little is known about this.

Please incentivize Farmers to use non-lethal methods that can protect livestock and the wolf by preventing wolf-livestock conflicts. For example, farms that remove attractants, such as animal carcasses, can decrease visitations and problems from wolves. New scientific studies show that killing wolves results in more problems for farmers as the wolf packs become young and unstable.  Over the long term, non-lethal methods save money.

Finally, recreational baiting, trapping and snaring injures and kills many non-target animals including eagles, domestic dogs and now the endangered wolf. Please stop these cruel and indiscriminant methods used for recreational hunting and trapping.

Your leadership is vital to securing a future for Minnesota's wild wolves.
