In April, someone found the endangered gray wolf OR-33 dead with gunshot wounds in Oregon's Fremont-Winema National Forest. He'd become well-known in the Ashland area, and his death is a substantial loss to Oregon's dwindling wolf population.
In the past two years, at least eight wolves have died of poaching or died of "mysterious circumstances" in the state, according to the Center for Biological Diversity.
We need to take OR-33's death seriously.
Sign this petition to call on local authorities to do whatever it takes to find the poacher responsible and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law.
