TFMPL joined multiple other groups, organizations and individuals for the hearing in favor of SB185 on 2/14/19. When a remaining time limit was called, TFMPL board president allowed other proponents to step ahead in line and testify.
Thank you, Senator Mike Phillips (SD31) for sponsoring this bill! There is nothing sporting, fair chase or ethical about killing and targeting habituated wolves simply for crossing an imaginary line.
These Yellowstone wolves are worth far more alive to many then dead to a self-serving few.
SB200 permits the killing by a landowner of any wolf if deemed a threat.
To listen to the hearing on 2/14/19:

This image was created by those that despise wolves so much their supporters routinely promote the killing of wolves whether legal or not, i.e."SSS shoot, shovel, shut-up, poison them, gut shoot them, run them over, flatten them, kill them all."
Yellowstone wolves are a particular and very easy target.
