4 Responses to Kill order placed on Ore. wolves killing livestock

  1. ProWolf in WY says:

    Too bad, but it could also show Oregonians that problem wolves will be dealt with.

  2. This pair of wolves got 5 strikes, and the rest of the nearby wolves have caused no trouble at for livestock.

  3. JW says:

    Kudos to this rancher for at least trying his best to prevent depredations. I just wish he would do the kill(s) instead of having WS have to come in and spend our tax money to do it.

  4. ProWolf in WY says:

    I agree with that sentiment JW.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
