A recent news article by our friends at The Narwhal looked at the B.C. Cattlemen’s Association’s Livestock Protection Program which allows trappers to kill entire wolf packs, including juveniles, if the predators kill, injure or harass even one cow or sheep.
The association paid trappers more than $500,000 for killing nearly 700 wolves in just over four years under a provincially funded program designed to reduce livestock predation, according to a document obtained from the province.
These numbers are just one way wolves in BC are killed. Raincoast is working towards an end to the recreational hunting of wolves, which sees over 1200 wolves killed annually. Take action!
