Help Stop The Poisoning Of Prairie Dogs sign now

The United States Forest Service is attempting to clear the way for the poisoning of the black-tailed prairie dog. These mammals that once numbered in the tens of millions and dwindle down to threatened species list. There greatest predator is man that up until now, has brutally and painful destroyed these animals. Ranchers are given compensation in some states to poison or shoot me. They even have an annual prairie dog shooting contest that uses live animals as targets. These animals are a important part in the life cycle of our prairies and forests. Ferrets, wolves and burrowing owls owe their life in some areas to them. They keep stop the spread of the mesquite plant which can inhibit the grow of grasses, by spreading the seedlings and keeping the shoots controlled, that are necessary for cows, horses, and other animals. There are numerous locations where they can be successfully moved to at a cost less than that used to destroy them. This is another example of killing off a species to the brink of extinction just to spend billions of dollars later to protect and save. We as a country have lost a lot through the unnecessary destruction of things that will only come back to humiliate us. Let us not wait to have a conscience and regret after we destroy. We as a people must value the life even one living creature and not simply kill because it is the easier thing to do for the moment.
