Please contact Governor Ted Kulongoski today and urge the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife to rescind the kill order and permit allowing sharpshooters to murder two wolves.

Dear Governor Kulongoski,

On Sunday morning, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife reported that two wolves had been killed in Baker County, Oregon.

The targeted wolves killed sheep and a cow in April and May, but after ranchers took steps to protect their stock they suffered no more losses through June, July, and most of August.

Only a handful of wolves live in Oregon, where they are beginning to recolonize the state after a 60-year absence due to human persecution. With just two confirmed litters of pups born over the past two years, every wolf in the state is important.

Oregon Department of Wildlife should continue helping livestock owners develop effective means to protect their stock and give Oregon the opportunity for wolves, livestock, and people to co-exist peacefully. In the meantime, occasional but rare depredations should not preclude the survival of these precious recolonizing wolves.

The needless killing of these wolves is a loss to the state of Oregon and wolves everywhere.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
