Re: “Should Oregon Ranchers be allowed to kill wolves?

I for one believe we should be allowed to kill wolves, they need to be controlled.

I live in Eastern Oregon, where the wolves have been reintroduced apparently.

However these wolves now rooming in our backyard are not the wolves that were originally here. They are Canadian wolves, they are also a much bigger breed of wolf. Unless I'm incorrect that makes them an invasive species.

I'm uncertain of why this is such a good thing....considering just recently a neighbor of mine has had wolves kill 2 of his livestock within a mile of his home. His herd is not very large and losing any effects his families income.

Also an acquaint of mine had wolves come up to his house when he drove to town to the store real quick. By the time he came back his two dogs that were on chains in the back yard of his home were dead. All that was left of them were their heads still attached to the collars and chains.

I just want to know if all are aware of the impact that the introduction of Canadian wolves are having in the rural areas in Oregon.

I haven't even begun to tell you about the recent decline of our deer and elk populations, that is due strickly to the introduction of this species.

I don't understand why we are aloud by law to manage almost every other species of animal in Oregon, that are considered a game animal but wolves....?

Please if you if anyone can explain to me why Canadian wolves being introduced into Oregon is a good thing I would very much appreciate it. Thank you for your time.
