Petition: Protect Ontario’s Wolves

Committee to Abolish Sport Hunting Blog

The Ford government is declaring open season on wolves and coyotes with an unscientific plan that is contradicted by even its own research.

Under the guise of moose conservation in northern Ontario, the government wants to drastically relax hunting restrictions for wolves and coyotes.

The result could be a devastating loss of predator species, with major ecosystem-wide impacts that hurt the health of our environment.

Scientists agree this one-dimensional strategy won’t help moose.

And the Ford government is removing all tag and reporting requirements, so we won’t even know the full impact of increased hunting.

If we are serious about protecting moose, then we need an evidence-based wildlife management strategy that deals with all the factors affecting moose decline, including climate change, habitat loss, diseases, and calf hunting.

The public consultation ends September 26th.

Join us in opposing these unethical and unscientific changes to wolf and coyote hunting.

  1. The petition can’t be signed by American residents. The wolves in southern Ontario, southern Quebec, and the northeast are all part of one big population. Natural wolf recolonization in the northeast depends largely on the survival of dispersing wolves from Ontario to New York and New England. We need to start working together and start recognizing that U.S. and Canada need a bi-national recovery plan for the eastern wolf.
