The Big Bad Wolf of Oregon?

Chirs Baxter / The Observer
This new billboard depicting a snarling wolf and cattle grazing in a pasture was erected by the Wallowa County Stock Growers earlier this month. It's disappointing that within a state with just 25 wolves there exists such venom. What could a new billboard reflect to convey the efforts to bridge the needs of the ranching community and wildlife?

This type of fear mongering is cowardly and manipulative. We have a similar campaign waged against the coyotes in my area. Wolves and coyotes get a bad rap. Education is key to stop this archaic way of dealing with any wildlife that interacts with domestic animals.
