Call to Action: Urge Oregon Governor to Sign Bill, Remove Wolves from Endangered/Threatened Status

Oregon RMEF Members,

The Oregon House and Senate united to pass HB 4040 which ratifies and approves a decision by the Oregon State Fish and Wildlife Commission to remove gray wolves from the state’s list of threatened or endangered species.

It now sits on the desk of Governor Kate Brown awaiting her signature yet she is being bombarded with threats of lawsuits from environmental and animal rights groups who use the wolf as a fundraising tool.

Oregon’s minimum estimated wolf population is now above 100 and should be managed by Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, just as ODFW manages all other wildlife species.

Read RMEF’s letter to Governor Brown here.

Please contact Governor Brown and ask her to sign this bill into law! Submit email comments here or call (503) 378-4582.

Thank you for your support.


David Allen
RMEF President & CEO
