After Yemenis, elephants, sharks, Trump attacks wolves


This Associated Press video says about itself:

24 Dec 2018: A man in Kosovo has named one of his four wolves “Trump” as a sign of gratitude to the United States for its assistance to his country.

Hysni Rexhaj, an Albanian farmer in the Kosovo town of Osek Hyle near Gjakova 80 kilometres (50 miles) west of Pristina, keeps birds and wolves on his farm – of which some he claims to have captured on his own “by hand.”

He also loves Donald Trump – so much that he recently decided to name one of the wolves after the US president.

“I have devoted this (wolf) named Trump to America because America has done so much for us (referring to the people of Kosovo),” Rexhaj told the Associated Press. He also claimed wolf “Trump” and Trump share “some almost similar attributes“, adding, “he is so beautiful because of that. I thank America, they have supported us during the war.”

The Donald Trump administration in the USA helps the Saudi bloodshed in Yemen. Donald Trump and his sons endanger the lives of endangered African elephants. Trump has said he wanted to kill all sharks.

And now, it’s the wolves‘ turn.

This 6 March 2019 video from the USA is called Trump administration proposes delisting gray wolf.

From Brooke Still in the USA today:

No time to waste — the Trump administration’s latest move to strip the gray wolf’s Endangered Species Act Protections could destroy the species. Submit an official public comment against this attack »

Trump and Interior Secretary David Bernhardt are risking the survival of the gray wolf species.

Bernhardt just announced plans to gut the Endangered Species Act (ESA) protections for gray wolves — jeopardizing their survival and that of the ecosystems that depend on them. Gray wolves are a vital species that once had habitats throughout the nation. But thanks to over-hunting and development, gray wolf populations have shrunk to approximately 6,000 wolves that only occupy less than 20% of their historic habitat range. We cannot risk losing even more gray wolves with Bernhardt’s plan.

Luckily, the agency can’t move forward without getting input from the people. We’re building a movement to get 20,000 comments into Bernhardt’s office to show Trump and Bernhardt just how opposed the public is to this blatant attack on our wildlife. If everyone reading this message submitted a public comment, we’d blow through this goal in minutes. Can we count on you to add your name?

WILDLIFE ALERT: Trump and Bernhardt are putting gray wolves on the line. Submit an official public comment now and be a hero for this species. Goal: 20,000 comments »

Gray wolves were once bordering extinction but were brought back because of people, like you, who cared enough to speak out. As a result gray wolves received ESA protections and have started to recover throughout the Rocky Mountain region and areas in Oregon, Washington, and California. But the species still has a long way to go. If Trump and Bernhardt’s plans move forward, we could lose all of that progress, and our ability to protect gray wolves could be completely undermined. We should be doing more to support gray wolf recovery, not weakening the most basic protections that this species relies on.

I’m sure you’re wondering who actually benefits from the rollback of these common sense safeguards? The answer is simple: Trump and Bernhardt are catering to trophy hunters and trappers. We cannot allow gray wolf populations to decline for the sake of hunting trophies.

But there’s hope: This will be one of the first acts that Bernhardt does as official head of the Interior Department. After his predecessor left in disgrace, the last thing he wants is to start his tenure at Interior with a major scandal. With the people power of LCV members like you, we can stop his attacks on gray wolves right in its tracks — but only if we’re loud enough. We need to gather 20,000 signatures before the comment period closes in a few weeks — can you speak out to protect these critical wildlife standards?

Speak out now to save gray wolves.

Thank you for fighting for our wildlife.

TRUMP GUTS ANIMAL PROTECTIONS Three months after leading scientists warned that humans have driven up to 1 million species around the globe to the brink of extinction, the Trump administration has finalized a sweeping overhaul of the Endangered Species Act, weakening one of America’s most important laws for protecting imperiled plants and animals.

  2. With just thirty seconds, you can make a difference in the survival of gray wolves. Stop Trump from stripping Endangered Species Act protections for gray wolves »

    If the Trump administration goes through with their latest anti-environment attack, we could lose gray wolves forever.

    Trump’s DOI secretary, a former oil and gas lobbyist, wants to gut Endangered Species Act (ESA) protections for gray wolves — risking their survival and the ecosystems in which they live. Gray wolves are a vital species that once had habitats throughout the nation. But thanks to over-hunting and development, gray wolf populations have shrunk to approximately 6,000 wolves that only occupy less than 20% of their historic habitat range. Losing ESA protections means that we could risk the entire species if Bernhardt’s plan goes through.

    Luckily, the agency can’t move forward with this devastating plan without getting input from the people. We’re building a movement to get 20,000 comments into the Interior Department to stop this deadly plan before it starts — if all of us speak out, we could make a real difference in the survival of gray wolves.

    We need all LCV members like you to submit a message directly to the Department of the Interior’s official public comment docket in opposition to this rollback.

    SUBMIT A COMMENT TO THE DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR:

    “I strongly urge that the Department do more to protect gray wolves, not undermine the safeguards that protect them.”

    It’s going to take all of us to build a movement to protect gray wolves, and we need you. Can we count on you to speak out now?

    Send the message to protect gray wolves: Gray wolves are a vital part of our ecosystems and heritage — and I will not allow you to strip away their protection »

    Thank you for taking action.
