The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (OMNRF) initiated the Moose Project to address declines in Ontario’s moose population.
On December 17th, 2015 MNRF put forward a proposal (EBR 012-6073) to weaken wolf and coyote protection.
Not only does this proposal fail to address moose declines, it continues to endanger at-risk eastern wolves living in central Ontario and encourages the unregulated slaughter of coyotes.
The proposed changes to wolf and coyote hunting regulations in Ontario lack scientific merit and serve to distract the public from the lack of concerted efforts to halt moose declines by prohibiting hunting until the reasons for the decline are fully understood.
