alberta wolf cull
Grey wolves in Alberta are exposed to lethal threats from every angle, including aerial gunning from helicopters, choking neck-snares, and poison-baits that lure wolves and many other species to their excruciating deaths. Alberta's liberal hunting and trapping regulations assure that the devastation of wolf families occurs nearly year-round.
Mirroring Alberta, the the government of British Columbia has just announced a plan to kill close to 200 wolves in the South Selkirk and South Peace regions of the province to ostensibly "save caribou." The B.C. cull will employ helicopter gunning of wolves, carried out before the snowmelt.
