Wolves were only taken off the endangered species list in 2015, yet their populations are back on the decline since the government has permitted the killing of wolves, including the murder of baby wolves in their very own dens.
A petition on Care2 written by the Oregon League of Conservation Voters (OLCV) explains that wolves in Oregon are being killed to “protect” cattle on ranches, and it is entirely legal thanks to the government allowing and conducting the unnecessary cruel practice. Additionally, the petition states that the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) has new provisions that would allow the trophy hunting of wolves!
The OLCV has a very strong argument against the government’s decision, stating in the petition letter: “The killing of wolves is an issue that affects us all, since wolves play a vital role in changing prey roaming patterns, leading to an increase in the health of the environment. With such a controversial and flawed outcome, it is imperative that the public is informed of all wolf decisions, and the draft plan’s proposal to stop this information goes directly against the health of our democracy.”
