Wildlife Damage Review

WDR is a grassroots organization committed to shutting down the U.S.Department of Agriculture's Animal Damage Control, an agency that "controls" wildlife species on behalf of private landowners and public land agencies. Basically, the Federally-funded agency eradicates species using poison, trapping, and other methods. For example, according to WDR, 26,335 animals were "taken" by ADC's supposedly canine-specific M-44s in 1993: 23,183 coyotes, 1,852 red foxes, 529 gray foxes, 253 feral dogs, 181 racoons, and 126 skunks. WDR also works to protect native species threatened in other manners; but it's main mission is to do away with ADC.

This organization is founded by Clarke Abbey (Edward Abbey's widow), Lisa Peacock, Nancy Zierenberg, and Marian Baker Gierlach.

Read the article An Eye for an Eye: Killing Wildlife for Revenge for more information about this.

WDR's address is:
