The American people will know that the officials of Oregon do not sell out to the highest bidder, but still believe in listening to the public, and are upholding the oaths of office they took. The decision to prevent the unnecessary killing of wolves

In response to your article, “Ore. panel OKs ’last resort’ wolf killing rule“ in the Missoulian:

The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission is to be congratulated for is adoption of a plan to protect the wolves. In reading this article I, along with millions of other wildlife supporters, will know that in Oregon they really do care about these wonderful, treasured creatures, the wolves.

The American people will know that the officials of Oregon do not sell out to the highest bidder, but still believe in listening to the public, and are upholding the oaths of office they took. The decision to prevent the unnecessary killing of wolves and implement the non-lethal steps such as alarm boxes – before resorting to killing – and the requirement that there needs to be ” hard evidence” such as tracking information from collars, proving the wolf was in the area four times where the livestock was killed, needs to be commended!

The Oregon plan provides the correct approach in protecting and nurturing wolves back to recovery. It is obvious that these state official are using sound science and intelligence in their decision-making. The citizens of Oregon should be honored that their elected officials are providing a balance between man and nature that should set the standards for other states.

This approach to maintaining a balance will also return the ecosystems back into recovery, and will pay off in the years to come as other wildlife and vegetation begin to recover. The people of America will be grateful that in Oregon, nature rules, and the officials there do not appease bloodthirsty killers and torturers.

Thank you, Oregon, your decision on wolf protection is a relief. You should be proud of your decision; the rest of America will be.

Irene Sette,

Wonderful...I wish they would do that here in MN, but I know our DNR would never support that.
