At last count, 440 Gray Wolves have been killed in the Northern Rockies since being removed from federal protection. This is about one quarter of the wolf population in Idaho and Montana. To sign a petition to the Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, demanding that he put Gray Wolves back on the Endangered Species List, go to this link: http://www.savebiogems.org/wolves/.
