Target: Oregon State Senate and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife
Goal: To ban the Oregon Cattlemen’s Association from killing the Imnaha pack in Oregon.
Recently a bill named HB 4158 was proposed by Oregon’s Cattlemen’s association to allow killing wolves because of a decline in livestock. There are less than 30 wolves in the entire state and there are 1.3 million cows. The Imnaha is Oregon’s first wolf pack, if this kill order becomes a reality this legendary wolf family will be a part of our history. This law is completely unjust, we cannot let such an atrocity become reality.
Wolves have long been condemned for their predatory nature, it is time that we realize that they are not to blame for the problems humans have created. Farmers have encroached on their habitat the Imnaha pack has only killed livestock to fight for survival. The pack has never put a farmer out of business, they are a part of Oregon’s history and should not be slaughtered. The wolf symbolizes free will and the ability to escape; tragically this is far from their reality. To kill them is to abolish a part of our history and a part of ourselves; we must ensure that the Imnaha wolf pack continues to thrive.
Dear Oregon State Senate and ODFW,
The Imnaha wolf pack is a part of Oregon’s history and deserves to thrive. The pack accounts for half of Oregon’s wolf population and killing them could result in the extinction of Oregon wolves. The cattleman’s desire to pass a law to kill these wolves is completely unjust.
Please do not let the HB 4158 bill pass because wolves should not be condemned for their will to survive. People encroached on their habitat to begin with and wolves have not put any farmers out of business. Killing wolves would be a huge mistake to appease a few petty farmers.
