Press Release:  Murie Family Cautions Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Over Anti-Wolf Rhetoric

Glendale CA – The Muries – arguably America’s first family of naturalists – sent an open letter today to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation asking them to either curb their anti-wolf rhetoric or stop using the Murie name in association with their organization.  The Foundation currently uses the Murie name on their website and other materials as well for their periodic granting of the Olaus J. Murie Award honoring the work of elk scientists.

 

The letter from Donald Murie – Olaus Murie’s son – was the result of a growing dissatisfaction with anti-wolf statements made by David Allen president and CEO of the elk conservation organization.
