Save Oregon's First Family of Wolves

The latest attack on Oregon's wolves comes from the Oregon Cattlemen's Association, which is pushing for reckless legislation that allows for the annihilation of the Imnaha pack.
The wolf pack was the first to establish and produce pups in the state in more than 60 years. While measures should be taken to prevent depredation of livestock, there are better ways to keep cattle safe than killing the family of Journey, who captured the nation's imagination with its thousand-mile expedition to become the first wolf in California in nearly a century.
Last fall, the Center for Biological Diversity and allies won an emergency stay of execution from the Oregon Court of Appeals that stopped the state from killing two wolves in the pack -- a stay that remains in place while the Cattlemen's Association pushes this appalling bill.

What a shame I tried to sign, but I couldn't do it from Australia .
How apt for the cause the following quote.
"The only way we can guarantee our continued survival on earth is to recognise the importance of other non human life forms and stop pretending we're on top of some pyramid of domination over other beings." - Rod Coronado
