As State Kills Wolves Calls for Transparency on Ore Wolf Plan / Public News Service

PORTLAND, Ore. – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has killed four members of the Harl Butte wolf pack and authorized killing two more from the Meacham pack after livestock deaths in northeast Oregon.The decision has made calls from conservation groups even more urgent to revise the state’s Wolf Conservation and Management Plan. The plan is slated for update every five years and was supposed to be revised in 2015. Groups are concerned the new plan in the works weakens protections and even could open the door to trophy hunting, said Aaron Tam, Pacific Northwest organizer for the Endangered Species Coalition.”The lack of transparency in the current wolf plan creates confusion and conflict among stakeholders,” he said. “The governor needs to weigh in on this. Scientists don’t agree with the current revisions to the wolf plan.”
