Wolves kill 3 calves

Today, April 9th, 2018,  one of our volunteers with Protect the Wolves contacted the Oregon Department of Fish and Game.  We tried to get answers about the recent depredations of three calves by wolves in Baker County but they would not say much and we were referred to Wildlife Communications Director Michelle Dennehy.

Wildlife officials to close wolf harvest early along Stampede Trail in Alaska

  While we are glad the hunting and trapping of wolves is closing earlier in a small section of Alaska, the state has a long way to go before they are anywhere near where they need to be. It's time ruthless elected officials like Rep. Don Young [R] Sen. Dan Sullivan [R]  Sen. Lisa Murkowski [R] wake up and realize that wolves are immensely valuable for the visitor viewing economy in the state.   Ecotourism brings in millions of dollars every year and continues to grow.  Since these politicians are completely void of empathy, especially towards animals and only care about [...]
