Les responsables de la faune de l'État de Washington ordonnent de tuer toute la famille des loups pour protéger les vaches

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 Loup et Protocole d'interaction loup-bétail 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 spectacles scientifiques que tuer un loup peut augmenter le risque que les loups s'attaquent au bétail à l'avenir. C'est contre-productif et insoutenable.

Washington devrait-il continuer à tuer des loups menacés par l'État pour profiter des marges bénéficiaires d'une entreprise privée ?

Veuillez contacter le directeur de WDFW Kelly Susewind avant qu'il ne soit trop tard et lui demander respectueusement d'annuler l'ordre de mise à mort.
