Bad news for BC’s wolves: open season

Raincoast's Dr. Paul Paquet speaks with CFAX

Wolves in BC better watch their backs. The provincial government has put a new wolf management in place, which doesn’t give the animals any breaks. Under the new rules, there is no closed season and no bag limit on the wolves. Cattle ranchers say they need to keep the wolf population in check, while conservationists say these regulations are based on politics and not on science.

Dave Dickosn interviews Raincoast’s Dr. Paul Paquest and Kevin Boon of the BC Cattleman’s Association.
