The Department of Fish and Wildlife is facade of an organization. It has become nothing more than a puppet for the livestock and ranching industries.
The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is planning on killing two more wolves from the Imnaha pack because of supposed livestock predation. This would reduce the pack size down to only two wolves! It would leave only the alpha female and a pup born in spring. This is could effectively destroy the pack altogether.
The ODFW is responding to pressure from the state's ranching and livestock industries, not sound science or ecological knowledge. Under the Wolf Conservation and Management Plan, ODFW kills wolves after chronic livestock depredation. It has clearly become policy to slaughter wolves in this state.
The ODFW needs to be held accountable!
Animal Defense League is organizing a rally at the Salem headquarters of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, this Tuesday at 10:00am. Signs, banners and other materials will be provided.

Yes, it's a little early, but these beautiful creatures need our help. Oregon has the opportunity to set a precedent of wildlife preservation at a time when other states are killing wolves left and right. We can not go down the path of Idaho, Montana or Wyoming. We need the public to take a stand against the scapegoating, misinformation campaigns, and the culling. We need to hold these corrupt agencies accountable. We need to demand justice for the wolves!!
We will see you there!
