Oregon’s Pioneering Vision for Wolves
"Oregon wolves got a tremendous boost last month as Governor John Kitzhaber helped shepherd the passage the most innovative wolf coexistence bill in the country. The historic legislation was passed unanimously in both houses of the state legislature.
The law — developed collaboratively by wolf conservationists and ranchers — includes compensation for wolf predations and funds important non-lethal coexistence tools for keeping wolves and livestock safe. Governor Kitzhaber was the only western governor to refute the backdoor delisting of wolves in the Northern Rockies.”
