Tell a friend to join the Oregon Wild Wolf Pack

Thanks for signing up to advocate for wolves. Your wolf howl ring tone should be in your e-mail inbox now. The threat is great and wolves need all the support they can possibly get. So, send this along to as many friends and family as you can so they can join the Oregon Wild Wolf Pack too.

The state of Oregon is offering and has signed a treaty full protection to wolves. They have actually made an amazing improvements in all areas of environmetal recovories for all animals in the state. Its amazing. (Have sent wolves there). And everytime they have a pup, they post it, simply beautiful, I love seeing the messages and having them work with me, I know quite a few of the wildland and woodland preservation team members very well. :)

The Wolves are important to the ecology system.

I have now joined Oregon Wild, and urged many in my personal e-mail list to do the same.
I urge you, also, to do the same.
Wolves are a "keystone" species, whose presence helps to keep ecosystems healthy and balanced, just as a keystone does in an arch.
The livestock, and hunter organizations that rally against wolves, i believe, are mistaken, or just simply misleading, in their diatribes against them.
See "Never Cry Wolf," by Farley Mowat, for a fascinating tale of his experience in tracking down the cause of elk deletion, in a section of Canada, years ago. It was not wolves, it was a trapper, killing elk to feed his dog sled team!!!

If I lived there, I would buy a cattle prod to deal with the rare meeting with a wolf. Most of them avoid humans and the packs are easily taught to leave livestock alone or can be deterred by a donkey or herd dog. Wolves keep wild herds from overpopulating, deplete rodents and other vermin, and dispose of roadkill and other accidental deaths. In snake country I'd carry a snake stick (3 meter pole with hook on end to safely move poisonous snake out of range in encounter) because even venomous snakes earn their keep eating rats. In wolf country it's a cattle prod or other 'reach' or ranged shock stunner so the errant wolf can wake after I'm gone and re-inforce the habit of avoiding humans. Living as a 'defence ready visittor' in the wilderness means respecting the wildlife without getting injured by or injuring them.

As a child I was brainwashed to believe wolves were blood thirsty, murdering nuisances. As an adult I know that's not true. How many others must we convince?

Thanks Roxy!
OW has been the foremost wolf advocate in OR for protecting the packs in the Blue/Wallowas, and were the people who kept OR-7 in the news down into NE CA for over a year.

I'm glad your reach is so far.

By the way Fred, you don't need a cattle prod. Wolves are not blind eating machines. They know you. (once they and coyotes both used to eat leather tack in travelers' camps, but being gunned down for it makes their surviving offspring taught to be more wary)
Neither do you need snake sticks, as rattlers generally rattle to warn. Their sound is unmistakable, even to those who've never before heard it. There's a big but here: Wherever rattlers are persecuted too much, the survivors have been selected by human killers for NOT rattling. So the wilder the country (the Great Basin from OR south was thinly populated by well-traveled Western Shoshone who shared their world without persecution of the other beings) the more polite the rattlers.

Several of those NE OR wolves dispersed, but most were killed, generally illegally. Yet, they will hopefully be the source for Cascade and Siskiyou future wolf populations (and hopefully then into the Klamaths, and NW CA, along with the Northern Sierras & isolated Warner Mts.), as well as into Northern NV high country (I imagine them into the Rubies and Monitor Mts of central NV). This is why protection is even more vital than just the pleasure and fulness of them as neighbors wherever they are.

Christine Stewart:
Some ranchers are private families that live on the land at or near their ranches, and some are large corporations that truck animals to leased grazing, then round them up to go to huge feedlots.

Some like Idaho's JR Simplot had hands in farming and ranching, and poured mega$$$ into antiwolf political action there (he was in his 80s ten years ago, so he himself might be gone. He's Ore-Ida potatoes and worth the big boycott)

I do agree with you about not eating beef, as most of the US suffers a distorted history exactly due to cattle ranching.

Sheep ranching is the industry most at risk, and most vocal about wolves. Domestic sheep do the most damage in marginally desert environments. I'm not sure what to do, as I wear wool socks and other garment (usually Merino, imported from Oz, as they were the ones who snaked the Merino from Spain which tried to keep exclusivity on that soft-wooled sheep.
I have visited OZ and learned some about what havoc to the land and its native beings has been done in the name of sheepishness, as well as the south island of NZ.
I do advocate AGAINST public land grazing leasing though, and is you should explore the history and photography of BLM and Forest Svc - grazed land, you might swear off wool and cattle totally. I keep clothes for as long as possible. All lands of the West are heavily overgrazed, and most ranchers/employees will shoot a coyote if they have a weapon available.
