B.C. government declares war — on wolves

Dear editor,

Wolves in B.C. have no hope, no hope to survive, no hope of protecting their children.

Dear editor,

Wolves in B.C. have no hope, no hope to survive, no hope of protecting their children.

The B.C. government has declared war against wolves. This government, like a criminal mafia, has more than enough killers to do their dirty work.

Wolves are assaulted to death from every direction, including above, with bullets raining down from the skies, with no reprieve. They have no place to hide for safely. Welcome to Canada.

The B.C. government says anyone, all year round, can kill nursing mothers, leaving babies to die a horrific death of starvation, fear and pain. Anyone, at any time can walk into a wolf den and butcher babies and infants to death.

According to the B.C. wolf “management” plan, anyone, without license or registration, can terrorize wolves, chasing them with helicopters for hours and hours and hours until wolves are so exhausted they cannot take another step, then blasting them to death with high-powered semi-automatic rifles.

The government says this is sport hunting. Baiting and killing wolves all year has become legal. Trapping of wolves has increased and intensified.

Wolves are trapped with steel leg-hold, conibare and snare traps without limits. Most of you know how barbaric and gruesome steel leg-hold traps are but most of you may not know that conibare and snare traps are even worse.

They slowly crush the animal for hours and hours to a hideous and gruesome death. If any of you have ever heard an animal screaming caught in these traps, you will never get the scream out of your head as long as you live.

Many of you may be wondering why the government is doing this. You probably think they just need to be educated. This is false.

They know exactly what they are doing.

As long as there are wolves, nature will always recover. Wolves and cougars are the top iconic animals that keep nature alive.

If you want a livable planet for your children and grandchildren, you had better care what happens to wolves. This is war against wolves, therefore it is a war against all of us.

Pierre Lebel,

Courtenay
