Time to Take Action
Our Klamath Basin Water Crisis
Upholding rural Americans' rights to grow food,
own property, and caretake our wildlife and natural resources.

This is just to show how the people were ignored.  People who would not otherwise send comments gladly signed this petition at their rural grocery store, sports store, cafe, etc.;  There were over 1400 signatures turned in before the deadline at the last hearing...the department said there were 1600 plus comments by the day of the hearing and they took 200  more that day. Obviously these signatures were not counted as opposing testimony.  People who opposed the plan, the planning process and having wolves in Oregon were disenfranchised by the commission and agency.

PETITION to: Fish and Wildlife Commissioners

The Wolf Management Plan is a people management plan. It curtails the rights of individuals to protect their pets, livestock, property and families. The losses stockmen will suffer, the predictable decline of wild ungulates that is expected from the depredation by even a small population of wolves and the cost to implement the management of wolves is unacceptable and unnecessary.

Therefore, we the undersigned, oppose the adoption of the draft Wolf Management Plan by reference as administrative rule and further we oppose the adoption of the Associated Rules until they are consistent with the Wolf Advisory Committee minority reports.
