The Debate Continues Around Oregon's Wolves
Today, Oregon wolves are back in the spotlight because a bill has been proposed that would allow some of the state's 29 endangered wolves to be killed. Oregon’s proposed wolf kill bill - HB4158 has been scheduled for a public hearing on February 9th. We have received numerous Facebook notes and emails from our supporters that are concerned about the fate of these wolves and thanks to Oregon Wild and the National WolfWatcher Coalition, there are resources to help people take action.
