Stop the open slaughter of Western Canadian Wolves

      Kelowna, Canada

Wolves are the key stone species in earth's ecosystem. With their decline, all species are at risk. Wolves are being used as the scapegoat by the Canadian Government. The government continues to destroy caribou habitat by mining for fossil fuels. They slaughter the wolves in a corrupt attempt to booster the caribou population, knowing, full well, that government led environmental destruction is the chief reason for caribou decline.

Mr. Peter Kent, Canada's Minister of the Environment, Minister of the Canadian Environment
Stop the open slaughter of Western Canadian Wolves

Sincerely,

      As long as people think

      that animals do not feel,

      Animals must feel,

      that people do not think.

      I despise "hunters" as "they" like to call themselves. In fact "they" are NOTHING but, cowards and murderers! The worst part is that they are legal??? It does not take any brains,skills,diploma nor special skills to shoot, trap and kill clueless,defenceless,gentle animals!!! There is no need for "hunters" to exist in this time and era…when no one is starving and in "survival" mode! Getting free meals and have "fun" in such weird way is criminal and should be illegal!!!Pure and simple. Animals are not CRIMINALS! Humans are the most powerful than why not protect,defend and let them be free as they should.

      This is my backyard and the wolves were here first. Cattle farms have more than enough money to protect their cattle. Stop the murder of innocent animals.
