Gov. Kate Brown (D) Picked a Big-Game Hunter for the Board That Manages Oregon's Wolves.

Wildlife conservation groups say Brown has sold them out in favor of ranchers, hunters and commercial fishers.


James Nash is good at killing exotic animals.

Nash's Instagram feed shows him posing with many of his prizesóincluding a hippopotamus, a zebra, a giant crocodile, a warthog and more pedestrian trophies, like the five coyotes he shot one winter's day.

"Finally got my hippo skull back from Africa," Nash says in the caption below a photo of him standing over the dead beast. "First shot was 5 yards. Second shot, the gun barrel was touching it."

Last week, Gov. Kate Brown appointed Nash, a rancher and hunting guide from Enterprise, to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Commission, which, among other duties, is responsible for the state's wolf management plan.

Oregon's leading wildlife conservation groups say appointing a big-game hunter to make wildlife policy will be disastrous for Oregon's recovering gray wolf population.

And they describe it as a betrayal by a governor who they say pledged during her re-election campaign last year to protect the threatened speciesóbut, after winning, picked nominees favoring groups that include ranchers, loggers and commercial fishermen, and hunters whose economic interests may conflict with the desires of a majority of Oregonians.

You will have to pardon me but I am a wolf lover and loath people who try to destroy them.
It is also horrible that she has a person who destroys any animal put in that position.
