Pat McCrory Office of the Governor Constituent Services Office 116 West Jones Street Raleigh, North Carolina 27603 Phone: (800) 662-7952 or (919) 733-2391 Fax: (919) 733-2120 Governor McCrory, Seven endangered red wolves have been shot and killed in North Carolina in 2012. Due to a law that permits night hunting, the red wolves are mistaken for coyotes. The rule change that allows night hunting threatens the Red Wolf with extinction. Having gone extinct in the wild in the 1980's, captive bred red wolves were re-introduced in 1987 on Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge in north eastern North Carolina. The estimated wild red wolf population is between 100 and 120 animals. People still carry their beliefs that top-level predators are dangerous and must be eliminated even though red wolves are elusive and generally avoid humans and human activity. I urge you to ban night hunting. The Red Wolf cannot recover. Sincerely, NAME STATE COUNTRY SOURCE: http://www.defenders.org/red-wolf/basic-facts
