Atka, have you been moonlighting?
Defenders and Wildlife recently shared a clip from the 2003 film "The Hunted" to demonstrate the agony snare wire can cause to wild animals. The wolf in the film has a strong resemblance to Wolf Conservation Center Ambassador wolf Atka so this clip really hits home with those who have been lucky enough to behold the WCC's arctic beauty. Snare wire and trapping are barbaric and indiscriminate hunting tools that are currently permitted in Idaho and soon in Montana too if current proposals are passed. Many organizations and individuals are outraged that some states permit the use of such tools on public lands. If your hackles are up to, The Wolf Army offers you a resource to speak up here.
