Imnaha Alpha Male 2009 (Where is he?)
Could things get any worse for wolves in Oregon? This has to be the most beleaguered wolf population in the US, besides the Mexican gray wolves.
So ODFW extended Wildlife Services kill order deadline for the second time! It was set to expire on June 19 but now it’s been moved ahead to June 25th. This gives Wildlife Services another week to hunt these two wolves down, even though there have been no depredations since June 4. Why would they do that? Pressure from ranchers? Does this ever end?
The most disturbing news concerns the missing alpha male. If he was shot illegally, this would be so tragic. The Imnahas are Oregons only breeding pair of wolves. The loss of the father (alpha) is the worst possible outcome.

Write to ODFW concerning the extension of Wildlife Services kill permit. Are they bowing to pressure from ranchers?
There are only 14 wolves in the entire state of Oregon and this is how they treat them?
