Funcionarios de vida silvestre del estado de Washington ordenan matar a toda la familia de lobos para proteger a las vacas

On Friday, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) Director Kelly Susewind issued a lethal removal order for the two remaining wolves of the Togo wolf family in response to depredation of cattle on grazing lands in the Kettle River range of Ferry County.

Thus, in accordance with the agency’s controversial plan lobo y Protocolo de interacción lobo-ganado 2017, WDFW Director Kelly Susewind reauthorized staff to kill the last two wolves of the Togo pack. WDFW officials killed one member of the Togo pack last September in an attempt to stop depredations, and a rancher killed another member of the Togo pack earlier this summer as it was attacking his cattle.

This isn’t the first time WDFW has ordered the killing of an entire pack. The state has obliterated several wolf packs over the years, starting with the Wedge Pack in 2012, and has caused countless packs to fragment as a result of targeting individual wolves. All of these kill orders were issued with the same goal: stop livestock depredation.

Yet programas de ciencia que matar a un lobo puede aumentar el riesgo de que los lobos se aprovechen del ganado en el futuro. Es contraproducente e insostenible.

¿Debería Washington seguir matando lobos en peligro de extinción para beneficiar los márgenes de beneficio de una empresa privada?

Póngase en contacto con el director de WDFW, Kelly Susewind, antes de que sea demasiado tarde y pídale respetuosamente que cancele la orden de matar.
