Exaggerating claims for money
by Cat Urbigkit, Pinedale Online!
December 14, 2011

The Center for Biological Diversity has issued a fundraising plea because "the wolf killers are out of control."

The plea uses words like "slaughter," "mowed down," and "wolf-killing frenzy" to describe legal wolf hunting seasons in western states.

The solicitation also claims that "Wyoming just got the go-ahead to begin killing more than 200 wolves." But that's not actually true. The status of wolves has not changed at all in Wyoming.

CBD is trying to raise $150,000 by the end of the year, which it claims will be matched "dollar-for-dollar by one of our board members."
