Wolves are often held responsible for the decline of caribou. The BC government has been sterilizing and killing wolves for more than a decade.
These efforts have not resulted in any measurable benefits for caribou, even according to the Province’s own Wolf Management Plan. People are the ultimate cause of caribou endangerment through the ongoing habitat destruction.
There are no reasonable ecological reasons to kill wolves, there are no valid economic reasons, and clearly there are no tenable ethical reasons.
