Wolf reduction supported

Re.: Poll: Wolf cull (Castanet, Jan. 27)

As for the wolf reduction program, it is backed by science and caribou recovery in British Columbia should be a critical priority for all B.C. residents.

Be wary of words like cull, extermination, slaughter and annihilation. They are tactical words used to sway public opinion and do not reflect the intention of our provincial recovery program.

Thousands of wolves still exist freely outside these control areas. Habitat loss and a predator-prey imbalance have placed caribou in a situation where immediate measures are required to guarantee their rightful place in B.C.

Wolf reduction, when used with habitat protection and enhancement, will keep caribou on our landscape where they belong.
