Services—the federal wildlife killing agency that works for agribusiness—has
not suffered a worse week in a long time.

and private lands—with our tax dollars.
No agency needs Congressional oversight more than Wildlife Services.

offensive against an incredibly offensive agency. We appreciate your support as
we seek to reform—or eliminate—Wildlife Services.
