Dear Stephen and everyone who is concerned with the Nature and Her protection.
I want to bring to your attention what is happening just know in Idaho and what will start in not even 2 weeks in Montana if we don't do anything. I know that we are here and they are in the States but it is not a reason to be indifferent.
It started on September the 1st in Idaho. The state could host the worst wolf massacre since the 1930s -- with as many as 70 guns trained on each of Idahos estimated 1,000 wolves.
The Idaho Department of Fish and Game has announced that it expects to issue an estimated 70,000 permits to hunt and kill wolves this year. Hundreds of defenseless wolves will be shot, with many surviving wolf pups left to starve to death without their mothers.
Everything seems to be hushed up, there is no publicity, no journalists, no noise or not enough and in such cases the weight of public opinion is the only hope.
There is a petition to the president Obama which I have already signed and passed to some friends, please do the same, it takes just a minute:
The people who signed the petition are not even 150 000 in a country with 250 millions of inhabitants. It is not normal !!! People just don't know.
So please make some noise !!!! Similar massacres were avoided in the past because people joined their voices. Defenders of Wildlife and the other ecological groups took a legal action and there is still hope to stop the Idaho killing and to save wolves from Montana.
For those who are not afraid of strong images, look on the video showing what happened very recently to the wolves in Alaska:
Would you let them do the same in Idaho and Montana ?
Dear Mister Fry, you are a well known public figure, many people listen to your voice. You have American friends. Please help !!!
With my warmest wishes and I love your books and your voice
