Ontario announces wolf and coyote cull, reverse your decision!

Text is from 
Sample letter

Premier, Minister, Executive Assistant, Deputy Minister, Sir, Madam, 
To whom it concerns:

As all controversial government announcements are released when no one is watching, so too was the announcement by Ontario’s Premier Kathleen Wynne to begin a wolf and coyote cull in Northern Ontario!

Posted on Ontario’s Environmental Bill of Rights Registry (EBR # 012-6073) on December 17, the Ontario govt. is proposing to REMOVE the previous REQUIREMENTS for hunters to purchase a special hunting ‘seal’ to kill wolves and REMOVE the RESTRICTION to kill only one wolf per season!

This wolf cull is NOT the same as the wolf culls of British Columbia where sharp shooters in helicopters chase and exhaust wolves and then gun them down.

This cull is much worse!

In Ontario the Wynne govt. will allow ANY hunter holding a small game hunting license to kill two wolves per season and remove all restrictions on the killing of coyotes!

To put this in perspective, in 2010 (most current statistics available) Ontario sold over 28,000 small game licenses.
When sold as a three year small game license, this number swells to over 100,000 small game hunters (2008 statistics).
If this proposal is approved, each small game hunter can kill two wolves per season and as many coyotes as desired.

Unlike targeted culls where a specific number of wolves are killed, the Ontario cull allows for thousands of wolves to be killed each year!

Why? Because the moose population is rapidly declining in Ontario.....Rather than close the sport hunting of moose and calves – yes - one can still kill a moose calf in Ontario – and/or protect moose habitat from intensive forestry and forestry applied herbicides that wither young seedlings eaten by moose during the winter months – it is simply easier to kill wolves and coyotes.

There is no reason to kill wolves or coyotes except out of hatred, or for luxury fur products.

Here is a sample comment from hunters who posted on the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters’ facebook page:

Cody Perry: “Change the price of a moose tag to "one wolf pelt". Eliminate limit on wolf hunt. Let the guys who shoot wolves and trade them for moose tags sell the tag for whatever price they can get. Cheapest bounty system for the tax payer, reduces moose harvest substantially, eliminates the draw, makes hunting wolves a feasible way to make a living, helps bring wolf population down to a sustainable level.”

This is second major cull announced by the Ontario govt. in the last two months. The first was the cull of black bears through a spring bear hunt, leaving many bear cubs to die as well.

We say ‘enough is enough’! These killing sprees are causing immense suffering, it has to stop! Respect the wolves's place in the ecosystem. Stop the War on Wildlife!

Dubrovnik, Croatia, return the dogs to Ms. Sandra Sambrailo and the Zarkovica Animal Shelter!
( If not signed yet)


To: Croatian Ministry of Agriculture,
Cc President mrs.Kolinda Grabar Kitarović .

I am a citizen of the European Union and write to express my shock and horror concerning the theft of approximately 65 dogs from the Zarkovica Animal Shelter.

Just past midnight on December 21, 2015, a group of individuals illegally and forcefully entered the Zarkovica Animal Shelter located in Dubrovnik, Croatia.

They proceeded to place longtime volunteer Ms. Sandra Sambrailo under detention - thereby violating her personal freedoms that are guaranteed by The European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.
Following this forceful and illegal entry into the shelter, the said individuals then proceeded to steal a portion of dogs located therein (approximately 65 dogs) and had them sent in the middle of the night to various sites within Croatia where they will either face certain death or will illegally find their way to European Union countries such as Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

What is shocking about this brutal and illegal action is that it was approved by local Dubrovnik authorities who knowingly either participated in the operation and/or acquiesced by allowing it to take place.

Considering the high esteem that the citizens of Dubrovnik have for the Zarkovica Animal Shelter (a rarity of its kind in Croatia) and for Mrs. Sambrailo particularly, the operation garnered serious protests and media attention throughout Croatia and abroad.
Such was the pressure exerted upon the City of Dubrovnik that its Council ordered the return of all stolen dogs by resolution dated December 21, 2015.

As a citizen of the European Union, I am alarmed by the illegality of the above-mentioned operation, the role played by Dubrovnik authorities, the ease with which stolen dogs are able to be passed on as legal one's within the European Union, and particularly by the fact that none of the stolen animals have been returned to the Zarkovica Animal Shelter which has been in existence for 15 years and has successfully protected animals by taking them off the streets and caring for them until good homes could be found.

Dubrovnik and Croatia are among the most popular tourist destinations in all of Europe.
Regrettably, the image and reputation of Dubrovnik has been seriously tarnished by the events of December 21, 2015.

As a citizen of the European Union, I cannot in good conscience stand aside and do nothing.
Consequently, I am hereby putting you on notice that should all 65 dogs not be returned to Ms. Sambrailo and the Zarkovica Animal Shelter by January 05, 2016, I shall exert the proper pressure upon my friends, my Government, and the European Union itself to make sure that the events of December 21, 2015 are well-known and I will urge everyone to re-think their summer holiday destinations.

Do govern yourself accordingly.

Yours truly,
