Killing Program’s Outrageous Death Toll
“Wildlife Services,” the
federal wildlife killing program, used our tax dollars to kill over 1.6 million
native animals last year, including 731 bobcats, 1,511 gray foxes, 1,534 red foxes,
20,334 black tailed prairie dogs, 480
black bears, 21,557 beavers, 69,905 coyotes, 284
cougars, 384 gray wolves and one critically endangered Mexican wolf. These horrifying numbers highlight the urgent need
for reform of the rogue program.

and help communities transition to more sustainable and prosperous
