Wildlife Slaughtering US Government "Services" 🤬

USDA Program Killed 400,000 Native Animals in 2021

A federal program called Wildlife Services, part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, just announced it killed 404,538 native animals last year. According to its new report — which probably underestimates the real number — in 2021 the secretive, multimillion-dollar program massacred 324 gray wolves, 64,131 coyotes, 433 black bears, 200 mountain lions, 605 bobcats, 3,014 foxes, 24,687 beavers, and 714 river otters. It also unintentionally killed at least 2,746 animals, from bears to bobcats to songbirds — and even pet dogs.

“Killing carnivores to supposedly benefit the livestock industry just leads to more conflicts and more killing,” said Collette Adkins, director of the Center for Biological Diversity’s Carnivore Conservation program. “This is a stomach-churning, truly vicious cycle, and we’ll continue to demand change from Wildlife Services.”

With litigation and advocacy, the Center has been fighting Wildlife Services’ cruel killing for almost a decade, winning in states like California, Idaho, Minnesota and Washington. Help us win with a donation to our Stop Wildlife Services Fund.

Washington Nixes Spring Bear Hunt — Thank You

Just in time to save Washington’s black bears at their most vulnerable, last weekend the state’s Fish and Wildlife Commission voted 5-4 against a proposed 2022 spring bear-hunting season.

“This vote will protect bear cubs from being orphaned by a reckless spring hunt,” said the Center’s Sophia Ressler. “It reeks of corruption that department staff and commissioners did the bidding of bear hunters by pushing this proposal to the commission only days before Gov. Inslee appointed new members.”

Supporters like you sent in more than 3,800 comments opposing this unsporting, inhumane hunt. Thanks — your actions made a difference.
