BC Government: Stop the BC Wolf Management Plan

    1. Petition by

      Sandra Kazandjian

      Vancouver, Canada

Everyone who cares about having a sustainable future with wolves in BC needs to voice their opinion on this urgent matter.  We only have until December 5th to have this management plan delayed, or even better, STOPPED!

The draft was created by wolf haters, livestock producers with no wolf advocates involved, and no public input. The Government has had this draft in their hands for the past 16-24 months and has only made it public as of mid-November.  This is our only chance to speak out against this one-sided plan.

Hunting regulations will not change.  This means that there are no bag limits or  tags set year-round on the number of wolves that can be hunted.  People can hunt and trap not only adults, but also puppies, even when the Alpha female has pups and is pregnant  This is the only animal that can be hunted during this time.

The plan states that the most ethical way to control wolf populations is to do aerial culls.  The evidence found by biologists in the Yukon Territory states otherwise and no longer use this practice.

One of the main reasons to cull wolves is to save caribou.  It is well documented by government biologists that the main cause of caribou decline is habitat loss.  It is not predation by wolves.  You can cull (kill) every wolf in British Columbia and the caribou will still disappear due to mismanagement of the environment.

Let the Minister of Tourism know that you are going to encourage people not to visit the province of BC because of how they manage the best place on Earth.  If you are from another country or province, let them know you won't be back if they pass this management plan which gives them an excuse to kill wolves.

It is important to let the three ministers and the Premier, Christy Clark, know that you are not in favour of this Wolf Slaughter (management plan) in Super Natural British Columbia.  The only Big Bad Wolf in this story are the people who work for our government!  Let's make a howl of a noise to make the Liberal leader know that this is not their decision; it is the people's, and we do not want a wolf slaughter plan!

      We as a human species have done enough damage. We have tried to balance animal populations in many other cases and the same results occur. If we do this it will only continue to show the greed of the human race and leave yet anouther negitive imprint on our plantet. I will not support the slaughter of wolves to help livestock farmers. Wolves have the same right we do to eat. If we want to look at wolves having an over population maybe we should take a look at our own species over population issues. Clearly we have the problem and are doing the most damage.
