Wolf Protesters Arrested in Oregon
Last week Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife announced they were going to kill two wolves from the Imnaha Pack. This would leave only 2 remaining wolves in the pack, which does not give the pack very good odds of survival. The wolves that were ordered to be killed are responsible for over 14 livestock kills in the last couple years. The wolf population is growing in Oregon, and some of the Imnaha pack moved into Idaho and other parts of Oregon.
However wolf activists believe that ranchers are being heard and represented better than the wolves and the wolf supporters. Two activists actually took u-shaped bike locks and put them around their necks, attaching themselves to the doors of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife offices.
Police removed the door handles before handcuffing the two protesters. They were taken into custody on misdemeanor charges of trespassing, disorderly conduct and obstructing governmental administration, said Lt. Gregg Hastings, an Oregon State Police spokesman. From Chron.com.
