Greg Walden statement on amendment to delist gray wolves in Oregon


Oregon’s wolf population has grown by more
than 40 percent, and yet we have this divided management strategy in the federal government
where part of the state is still listed and part of the state they’re not. We need to
get to a single management strategy where we have local control under the Oregon state
plan. That’s why this amendment is so important: to repeal the endangered species listing for
the gray wolf, get it under state management where we’ve got the most local control where
Oregonians can make the decisions.

  1. I have no interest in voting for someone who has no environmental concerns. There is only about 100 gray wolves in Oregon. The solution is not to kill the gray wolf but to find practical solutions to help livestock and wolves coexist on the same landscape. We need to learn how to live with everything and everybody. Destroying a beautiful creature is not the answer. This land is not just for the man. It belongs to the plants and animals as well!
