Poll: Most Oregonians say killing no way to manage wolves

A majority of Oregonians believe hunting wolves is no way to manage them and that the species still deserves endangered species protections, according to a new poll conducted by Mason Dixon Polling and Research. More than 70% of Oregon voters who responded said nonlethal prevention methods should be attempted before officials are allowed to kill wolves. Two-thirds said wolves don’t pose such an economic threat to the cattle industry that killing them is required.
