    Mad Wolves to Be Poisoned Over Tar Sands in Canada

    Late last week, internal documents went public showing Canada is fretting over its sullied reputation for unfettered fossil fuel development, while resorting to poisoning wolves rather than fixing the problem. NWF released a paper today showing tar sands, oil and gas development in Canada is contributing to the decline in caribou herds.

    Rather than improve environmental practices to protect and restore caribou habitat, Canadian wildlife officials are poisoning wolves with strychnine-laced bait. The news comes as Alberta and Canadian officials scramble to address environmental monitoring failures that are wreaking havoc up north.

    The highly controversial Keystone XL pipeline proposal would move this Canadian dirty oil through the heartland of the U.S. to export, making the U.S. complicit in causing excruciating wildlife culling.


    Strychnine progresses painfully from muscle spasms to convulsions to suffocation over a period of hours. The NWF paper says the poison will also put at risk animals like raptors, wolverines and cougars that eat the poisoned bait or scavenge on the carcasses of poisoned wildlife.

    Here’s what Canada’s Minister of Environment Peter Kent said in September: “Culling is an accepted if regrettable scientific practice and means of controlling populations and attempting to balance what civilization has developed. I’ve got to admit, it troubles me that that’s what is necessary to protect this species,” Kent commented. Simon Dyer of the Pembina Institute estimates that many thousands of wolves could be destroyed over five years.

    Instead of resorting to euphemistic descriptions of a repugnant method of killing, Mr. Kent and Canadian officials should be stopping the habitat destruction in the first place. Destroying and fragmenting caribou habitat to produce one of the dirtiest fuels on the planet means fewer caribou and fewer wolves just to line the pockets of Big Oil.

    It’s increasingly par for the course in Canada, as the nation continues its slide from “Green to Gray.” What’s disturbing is that Keystone XL commits the U.S. to a decades-long partnership in these ”crimes” against wildlife.

    Caribou have been inhabitants of the northern hemisphere for 1.6 million years. Some species are declining. Environment Canada classifies the boreal and southern mountain populations of caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou) in Alberta as threatened. “. . . the Alberta Caribou Committee notes that three of the province’s 18 herds are at immediate risk of disappearing because of loss of habitat. Six are in decline, three are stable, and not enough is known about the remaining six to determine how well they are doing,” wrote Canadian author and Arctic specialist Ed Struzik on October 27 in Environment360. “Scientists are confident, however, that they are in decline as well, further fueling efforts to protect caribou by eradicating wolves,” he wrote.

    Habitat Protection, Restoration Should Be the Focus

    Incredibly, the Canadian government actually acknowledges that carving up forests is threatening caribou. “Boreal caribou are primarily threatened by a reduction in the availability and suitability of habitat necessary to carry out the life processes necessary for their survival and reproduction,” states Environment Canada’s proposed caribou recovery plan. Why then, we have to ask, are they not stopping this destruction? More development means less habitat, fewer caribou and fewer wolves. Both caribou and wolves need a healthy habitat.

    If Canada wants to protect caribou herds, they should protect caribou habitat. Scapegoating wolves to produce profits for the oil industry is cruel and wrong.

    Many people in Canada are against the oilsands and how bad they are for the environment. There have been protests and such. The government just does not care because they bring in so much money. It is heartbreaking. Most of the Canadians I know hate the oilsands. There are so many wolves here also that are just poached.
    All things must come to the soul from it's roots, from where it is planted. The that is beside the running water is fresher, and gives more fruit.

    Well to the government, human and animal life is expendable, but money is a holy sacrament.

    ^^^Exactly.

    That's what happens when you're no longer a Nation, a State or a People - but are instead an Economy. Priorities go out the window...

    Ding ding ding! It's a consequence of a race no longer caring about it's preservation. We destroy ourselves, we destroy the environment, too. Our ancestors lived off nature for the last 200 years, and if we destroy that, we got nothing. And I mean nothing. If we wish to preserve our race, we must also preserve the environment, since our racial memory naturally realizes that we are a part of the environment, NOT the other way around. And I don't mean the liberal 'Go Green!' nonsense when I say "preserve the environment", I mean take serious measures to preserve it.

    Every time I see something like this, it just reinforces my conviction that the end of all this is coming. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. The bastards who ordered this action, and hell, everyone involved in it, should have pure phosphorus injected into their veins. See how they enjoy a nice, painful, chemical death.
