Animal Planet: Remove Wolf-Hating Episode!

Victory! The creator of this petition declared the campaign a success. You can still sign the petition to show support.

It's unacceptable and irresponsible to air an episode depicting wolves as over-populated, man-eating, and causing "murderous carnage". To air such an episode perpetuates myths and misconceptions about wolves that scientific research has long ago de-bunked! Tell Animal Planet to remove this episode and issue a formal apology to viewers for airing such a false and misleading program about wolves!

Why is this important?

Wolves in the United States are fighting for their lives. De-listed from the Endangered Species List in six states, they are hunted, trapped, and gassed in their dens, resulting in at least a 20% overall drop in their population. Wolves are not a threat to humans, and have a minimal impact on livestock losses. Wolves are deeply committed to family life, and when a pack member is slain, it can fatally disrupt pack life. Animal Planet must stop perpetuating lies about wolves!

I have always respected animals before Humans, as I was a member of LYNX the organisation that had to go to court justifing the barbaric man traps used on wild Cats.
