Wolf bill closely watched in Capitol

February 22, 2012

HB 4158 A-Engrossed – Uphold Oregon’s current wolf plan.
By Oregonians For Food and Shelter

The Oregon Wolf Conservation and Management Plan, agreed to and adopted in the 2005 Session and reaffirmed in 2010, allows the taking of wolves causing chronic livestock depredation. Unfortunately, recent litigation has placed a stay order on ODFW for the taking of problem wolves. HB 4158-A does not change the current Oregon Wolf Conservation and Management Plan, but states clearly that on the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has the authority to continue to implement the plan as they have for the last six years, including the taking of problem wolves.

The bill was approved by the House on February 17th, and on February 21st it was referred by the Senate President to the Senate Environment & Natural Resources Committee.

[Natural Resource Note: At the time of notice this bill was stuck Senate Environment and Natural Resource Committee.  It’s current status is unknown at time of posting]
