Stop killing endangered species

September 27, 2012

Grey wolves killed for preying on livestock


In other countries endangered species are lost due to habitat destruction, overhunting, and poaching. Here, in addition to the above, we have our state and federal wildlife agents killing endangered species. Under Washington state code, the primary mandate for the Department of Fish and Wildlife is to “protect, preserve and perpetuate” our state’s wildlife.

Gunning down wolves along with their pups to protect cattle grazing on federal land is abhorrent, a crime against nature, and goes against state code
.
Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, do your job and stop killing endangered species.
