Animal sacrifice

Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society asks Alberta to protect caribou.

Helene Walsh, a conservation director with the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society, said her organization fears the province, when faced with the choice between preserving caribou and helping the oil industry, will sacrifice the animals. Caribou numbers in the oil sands area have dropped by nearly 50 per cent since 1993, according to figures the group sent Mr. Stelmach.

“I think they’re almost doomed because industry and the government don’t seem willing to take their plight seriously,” Ms. Walsh said.
