After Killing Mom and Pup from Helicopter, Officials Still on the Hunt to Kill Entire Wolf Family
Officials from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) have yet to post an update re their efforts to kill the last remaining members of the Old Profanity Territory (OPT) wolf family.
WDFW issued the kill order for the father wolf and his 6-month-old pup on October 26, 2018, a month after the agency’s sharpshooters took to the air to shoot down the mother and a different pup.
Their crime? Preying on livestock that are grazing on public lands.
The agency is aware that peer-reviewed research demonstrates that killing predators is not only ineffective, but it can even result in increased attacks on livestock by survivors.
Killing wolves (state-endangered no less) to benefit the profit margins of a private business isn’t “conservation”.
Please contact WDFW Director Kelly Susewind and WA Governor Jay Inslee before it’s too late and respectfully ask them to call off the kill order.
