The government of Canada must hear from people around the world that the unscientific and sensless slaughter of wolves to protect tar sands and other industrial development is unacceptable. This wolf cull will ruin Canada's international reputation as a wildlife tourism destination - all to protect oil company profits, not wildlife.
The wolf slaughter will kill over 6,000 wolves in the coming years. The wolves are being used as a scapegoat by government to lay the blame for reduced populations of caribou in Alberta.
The real culprit is not the wolves killing caribou, but the rampant deforestation and habitat destruction stemming from oil and gas development. Scientists and experts ridicule the plan to poison and shoot the wolves, but are being ignored by a government bent on extracting oil at any expense. Stop the slaughter, and focus on cleaning up the tar sands threat to all wildlife.
