Rally for Wolves on August 28th in Hamilton, Montana

Please join us on Sunday, August 28 in Hamilton, Montana to protest the wolf slaughter that's set to begin on September 3, 2011 in that state.

Friends of Animals is enacting a complete economic boycott of the three states that are sponsoring wolf kills-Montana, Idaho and Wyoming. We're asking our supporters not to travel to, or buy goods from, any of the offending states until wolves are not slaughtered and, once again, offered federal protection-and this includes a boycott of Yellowstone National Park, which is part of all three states.
