Forty wolves and an untold number of coyotes need a few minutes of your time, now. After days of researching Idaho statues, codes, and regulations, Green Vegans has sent a seven-page letter to Idaho’s Dallas Burkhalter – Deputy Attorney General, Kathleen Trever – Lead Deputy Attorney General, Virgil Moore, Director of the Idaho Department of Fish and Game (IDFG), and Rick Jackson, Chair of the Idaho State Tax Commission. We are demanding they enforce Idaho rules and regulations already in place that should stop the “First Annual 2-Day Coyote and Wolf Hunting Derby” in its tracks—if the political will is there.
The contest organizer, “Idaho for Wildlife” (really), the sponsors, and the fee-paying participants are acting outside of regulatory control. The State of Idaho appears ready to do nothing to stop this slaughter. Refer to ALERT #1 for details.
Yes, your time is precious just before the official holiday season. But the hunt is scheduled to begin December 28 and 29, 2013 in Salmon, Idaho.
Please send your email now (just cut and paste the talking points below) and then call and ask them to read it:
a) Kathleen Trever – Lead Deputy Attorney General (208) 334-2400 /
b) W. Dallas Burkhalter – Deputy Attorney General (208) 334-3715 /
(Trevor and Burkhalter represent and interpret IDFG regulations)
c) Virgil Moore, Director, Idaho Department of Fish and Game (208) 334-3771 /
2) Rich Jackson, Chair, Idaho State Tax Commission. (208) 334-7500 / c/o
The person receiving the email will be collecting them as she is covering for another staff person on vacation. Please, no harsh words. Just ask them to investigate the tax status of “Idaho for Wildlife”:
4) Share this Alert on your social media. Remember, Christmas is a holiday so we have Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday only to save 40 wolves and for coyotes, there is no limit.
