Subject: Anti-Wolf Bills, Arizona

Dear Representative, Senator, Sir, Madam:
I oppose the terror against and the sadistic killing of Wolves
I ask you to please prevent SB1211, SB1212,  SCR1006 and  HB2699, these outrageous bills, from becoming state law!

Mexican gray wolves are native to AZ.

83 remain in the wild and only 37 remain in the state.
We have a moral obligation to promote their recovery.

Polling showed 77% of Arizona voters and 69% of New Mexico voters support the Mexican wolf reintroduction.

The livestock industry has a responsibility to share public lands with wolves and other wildlife.
There are many tried and true methods to avoid conflicts between livestock and wolves.
Funds are available to help livestock owners implement nonlethal deterrents, better animal husbandry practices, and other innovative tools that minimize conflict.

If state legislators really want to help, they should redirect the $250,000 slated for lawyers toward implementation of the new Coexistence Plan -- a performance-based program co-developed by ranchers, conservationists and wildlife agencies, which provides funds to help implement conflict-avoidance measures and “rewards” ranchers for helping to successfully raise the wolf population.

Wildlife biologists believe that Mexican wolves will improve the overall health of the Southwest and its rivers and streams – just as the return of gray wolves to Yellowstone has helped restore balance to its lands and waters..

Wolves generate economic benefits - a University of Montana study found that visitors who come to see wolves in Yellowstone contribute roughly $35.5 million annually to the regional economy.
Thank you for your attention.


Sincerely:
