Cathy Taibbi, an excellent journalist, is an expert on wild life and the environment. Her stories are published on major news sites internationally, pulling thousands of visitors. Her passion for the subjects she writes about gives her reports extra punch.
Providing solid research and startling photos, Ms. Taibbi’s stories are having a positive effect. A series she wrote on wind turbines, that kill so many birds including eagles, resulted in a new design for the turbines in an effort to prevent or at least slow down the deaths.
In a story just published on allvoices.com, Ms. Taibbi reveals how the special-interests, mainly the livestock and hunting lobbies, using wildlife as political pawns, have a goal to eradicate all wolves from North America. The first step in accomplishing this, according to the breaking story, is to remove wolves from the ‘endangered species’ list, taking all wolves in America from federal protection, while opening the way for enthusiastic hunters to kill them. The feds provided ideas on how to lure them to their deaths, to kill them by trapping, poisoning, bow and arrow and of course, shooting them. No restrictions.
The most disturbing and outrageous of all, is some of the government sites that advise hunters to shoot them in a way that does not kill them instantly so that they will suffer longer. That is THEIR words! This is cruel, inhumane, insane and barbaric. THIS MUST STOP! Ms. Taibbi is circulating a petition to stop this madness.
