Just saw this press release from Oregon Wild. Shame on ODFW for giving in to political pressure from the other side. The only reasonable thing to do is to give in to our political pressure, because this isn't a political issue.
Just to be clear: I believe poaching is bad. Illegal even. But having state agency personnel avoid meeting people that are concerned about wolf populations won't solve the situation. I'm sure if Oregon Wild held a symposium on wolves ODFW would be right there too.
