Wolves are culled for “wildlife management” purposes to cover the impacts of industrial and human activity. The BC government contracts helicoptor companies to kill them via aerial shooting, and also kills via poison, trapping, and neck snares. Additionally, the federal government has expanded on the provincial wolf kill program via poisoning with strychinine and cyanide, which are acknowledged worldwide as brutal methods of killing animals due to the intensity and duration of suffering, as well as indiscriminately killing dogs, bears, coyotes, birds, and pets. Wildlife specialists, veterinarians, and First Nations are ringing the alarm bell around the destruction caused by this program.
Scientific data shows that industrial interests that show no regard for the environment nor wildlife are to blame for the the decline of Mountain Caribou, not wolves.
Furthermore, Canada Goose clothing tortures animals to make their product. Wolves and coyotes are trapped with crushing leg holds and torturous neck snares. With neck snares, it’s also common for the animal to die of “jelly brain“, when the snare slowly cuts off circulation from the head to heart but the blood keeps going into the head. The brain swells up until the wolf’s head explodes.
Together we can stop the war on wolves.
