Which groups are trying to get the wolves back under US Protection?

Any contact information or whatever would be helpful. Trump did not make a good call removing their protections, in my humble opinion. I have time this summer when I'm off and I'd like to do something for the greater good with it...

Thanks in advance :)

Wyoming wolf incident posts

I do not want to suppress posts about the Wyoming wolf incident. However these posts are frequently becoming a hotbed of disrespect and fighting.

Please keep it clean and respectful. Otherwise the ban hammer will come out and be used frequently.

EDIT: I have just had to remove dozens of posts calling for violence against the individual and establishment in question. As such, I have been forced to lock comments on all related threads.

I will start a mega thread shortly. Any and all discussion of the incident will need to be restricted to that thread. Any new posts will be removed.

Am I wrong to feel disheartened over the Red Wolf?

So, me and my fiancee are planning on moving to North Carolina, and I want to do what I can to get involved with Red Wolf conservation. However, I'm feeling disheartened upon hearing of the near fanatical hatred ranchers, hunters and farmers have for wolves, and I'm genuinely worried that before long, the Red Wolf (and even the Gray Wolf) may end up extinct. Is the internet just blowing the prevalence of these wolf-hating ranchers/hunters/farmers out of proportion, or does pretty much every one of them view wolves as pests?

r/Wyoming appears to be shutting down all reddit related to Cody Roberts Feb 29 Wolf Incident

It appears r/Wyoming is shutting down Cody Roberts post commenting so I'm throwing this out here. This post has three parts. One: what happened. Two: Ways to take action. Three: Reference links.

What happened?

On February 29th, Cody Roberts, reportedly intoxicated, perpetrated a heinous act of animal cruelty in Wyoming. Witnesses recount him chasing down a young wolf with a snowmobile until it collapsed in exhaustion and then ran it over. He then callously duct-taped its mouth and fit it with a shock collar. Shockingly, Roberts proceeded to bring the injured and tortured animal to the Green River bar in Daniel, WY (https://www.yelp.com/biz/green-river-bar-daniel), where he subjected it to further torture amidst the patrons. Every time the wolf tried to move it appears (from what I could stomach watching on the video before turning it off) he just shocked the bejesus out of it)

Afterwards he then took the young wolf out back, tortured it some more for fun, then finally killed it and turning over it's pelt to Wyoming Fish and Wildlife.

Everything, according to Wyoming Fish and Wildlife, was legal, except for keeping a live wolf in your possession. For that violation, Cody Roberts was fined $250 and did not even have to show up in court. However, one brave patron reported the incident to Cowboy State news outlet. It was picked up by other news outlets. Wyoming Fish and Wildlife initially refused to release any information but Cody Roberts had already proudly posted a picture of himself with the tortured wolf. Holly Roberts, Cody Robert's wife, defended his actions, and his aunt, Jeanne Ivie Robert, a bartender at the Green River Bar, reenacted the cruel scene. All immediate Roberts Family social media accounts appear to be de-activated. His friends have come to his defense saying he was drunk and should be forgiven. Originally I could find those comments on FB but I don't seem to be able to now.

Hi, not sure if this allowed but there is another petition that’s in the works - it’s has over 11K signature but let’s get it to 15K, that’s the goal.

I will put the link in comment. Please, do it for that wolf that was recently tortured then shot.

Do wolves exhibit the flehmen response?

Sorry if this is a strange question, but I just kinda curious and honestly couldn't find an answer just googling about.

So, thing is: do wolves do that thing where they open their mouths to better detect pheromones or smells?

I've read dogs can do something similar albeit it isn't, strictly speaking, a flehmen response. Are wolves in that same category, of "close but not quite"?

If anyone knows, I'd love to hear it :) thanks in advance!
