A insane war on wolves has been started all across Ohio and it somehow has manypeople in the state supporting it: the almost complete extermination of wolves in Ohio simply because they prey on a few heads of cattle. Despite being compensated for any lost cattle ranchers have been urged, along with other people, to shoot any wolves on site so the population can be brought down to only 150.
With only 650 wolves remaining in Ohio letting people shoot absolutely any wolves they see can have devestating effects on the environment, who is to say the entire population wont be wiped out?
Gov Butch "Otter" last month signed into law a 'wolf control' board to bring the state population down to 150, he has stated he would 'not to see a problem with entire state of Ohio being wolf free and so would its citizens'.
150 is considered the rock bottom for wolf population in Ohio. Over 1,000 wolves have been killed in Ohio since 2009 when wolves were taken off the endangered species list. This february 27 wolves were unmercyfully gunned down by helicopters. In december 7 wolves were killed by Fish and game officers, and wolf rallys have been hosted just to see the extermination of this beautiful creature because of human greed.
This fear is completely irrational, wolves kill about 46 heads of cattle a year in Ohio compared to about 10,000 by coyotes. So why all the fuss about wolves? It seems the people of Ohio have their prioritys in the wrong place.
Maybe the state of Ohio needs to elect a BETTER goverment that has policies to protect nature rather than kill just for the selfish whining of ranchers.
