Friday, September 11, 2015, 9:16 AM - Pop singer Miley Cyrus has taken to social media to rally her fans together to sign an online petition against British Columbia's wolf hunt.

However, B.C. premier Christy Clark says Cyrus should stop meddling in the province's environmental policies and to stick to what she knows best, twerking.

On Tuesday the pop singer posted several images on Instagram protesting the cull.

"I am shameless when it comes to making changes in a world that at times needs to reevaluate its morals when dealing with kindness towards compassion," Cyrus posted on social media. "I am not asking for $ or much of your time, just your signature so the government will stop killing these beautiful creatures (which if money is any motivation, over 2 million dollars will go into cruelly murdering the wild wolves)!"

I ask so much of my fanz, friendz, & family... But I am shameless when it comes to making changes in a world that at times needs to reevaluate its morals when dealing with kindness and compassion towards animals , humanity , and the environment. None of us are perfect! A lot of times our actions are just a result of the unknown BUT I / we are all evolving more everyday (please always lemme know YOUR passions as well I love learning more about what is going on in the world.... half of the solution is understanding the problem) That's why it is all of our responsibility to bring light into the darkness! I am not asking for $ or much of your time just your signature so the government will stop killing these beautiful creatures (which if money is any motivation, over 2 million dollars will go into cruelly murdering the wild wolves) ! We (humans) are over populating while more animals everyday go into extinction! A life with more humans and less animals sounds like a very sad planet.... Sometimes I wish I could move to the moon & take them all with me... Love you all dearly ❤️❤️❤️❤️ take action @ pacificwild.org and please #savethebcwolves @braisoncwukong thank you for sharing this major issue with me.... I love you and your big heart and WE as Kongs are going to do something about this! We can't let another winter pass us by without stopping this mass extermination! @pacificwild

By Wednesday afternoon the petition on Change.org received over 200,000 signatures.

The controversial wolf control program is about to enter its second year. Clark says Cyrus is uninformed about the cull and says it's necessary to help protect endangered mountain caribou.

Conservation group Pacific Wild launched the petition to end the cull, accusing the government of wrongfully blaming wolves for the caribou population decline.

Don't let squares play the role of the circle of life!

"The province is merely using wolves as a scapegoat for their own inaction. They should be protecting adequate levels of habitat for species such as endangered caribou," Pacific Wild executive director Ian McAllister told CTV News. "That is the real issue. It's not the wolves."

The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources uses penning projects to increase calf survival rate among endangered caribou herds, according to CTV. The Ministry claims targeted wolf removal is necessary to protect the species. Meanwhile, wolves are "not a species of concern."

There are approximately between 5,300 and 11,600 wolves in B.C.
