The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has ordered the killing of the alpha male and young male in the small, Imnaha wolf pack. That’s half the pack, and 2 of only 14 wolves in the whole state. If they’re killed, the remaining female and her pup will be left to survive the winter on their own, with no pack to support them.
The Center for Biological Diversity rushed to the Oregon Court of Appeals with an 11th-hour emergency request to stop the killing and . . . we won.
But it’s only a temporary reprieve. It will last just long enough for us to make our full case to end the killing. If we lose, the wolves will be killed, and in all likelihood the female and her pup will die or disperse, forever destroying the pack.
We can’t let the Imnaha pack be wiped out to satisfy the greed and ignorance of a state agency controlled by the livestock industry. Please help us win this emergency lawsuit by making a generous donation today to our Emergency Wolf Protection Fund.
We’ll use your support to prepare emergency briefs on a fast timetable to win permanent protection for the legendary Imnaha pack and to secure longterm protections for wolves.
