Your calls and emails are having the desired effect. The only national sponsor of the “First Annual 2-Day Wolf and Coyote Derby” was NAPA (Auto Parts). They have withdrawn their sponsorship. Agencies and sponsors are being flooded with calls from all over the world. In one instance alone, our Tweet regarding Alert #2 was forwarded to 34,000 people. As you’ve seen, other organizations are having a profound impact as well with their parallel alerts.
Feel free to call and thank NAPA for withdrawing from sponsorship of the slaughter by using the contact information you’ll find in Alert #2 at www.greenvegans.org.
In addition, several organizations have filed a lawsuit in federal court challenging the refusal of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) to require a permit for the wolf and coyote-killing contest on the lands they manage. We will post their press release tomorrow along with an update on the responses Green Vegans has received regarding our letter to the state agencies involved. You’ve made a difference. Thank you and thank yourselves.
