Wyoming Plans Wolf Hunt For Fall 2012…..

Now I’ve heard it all. Wyoming plans on having a trophy hunt this fall, allowing up to 52 wolves to be killed. This will be carried out in the “flex zone” around Yellowstone National Park, which means any Yellowstone wolves wandering out of the park can be legally shot.

“Under Wyoming’s plan, the state would allow trophy hunting for wolves in a flexible zone around Yellowstone National Park, beginning in October. The hunting would last until 52 were killed or until the end of the year”

Remember the Cottonwood Pack?  The alpha male, female and their daughter got blown away by hunters during Montana’s first wolf hunt in 2009 because the state brilliantly opened the hunt right outside of Yellowstone and the Cottonwood Pack, not knowing how to read boundary signs, left the safety of the park and walked into a shooting gallery. Hunters were waiting for the wolves to cross over. It was like blasting ducks in a barrel.  Must be fun to kill innocent animals and heck they didn’t even have to work at it.

Yellowstone wolves are partially habituated to humans because they are enormously popular with tourists, who regularly follow their every move. Yellowstone wolves are used to people and have lost much of their natural fear of them, bad idea. They’ll be easy targets for “hunters” and I use that word very loosely.  Its’ not bad enough Wyoming wants to decimate their approx. 340 wolves down to 100 animals and ten breeding pairs, due to the disgusting wolf management plan that was concocted back in the  nineties to placate ranchers. Since the USFWS didn’t bother to update the plan since the reintroduction, we are left with the wolf killing states using these low numbers to “pick off”  their wolf populations. This is why wolves need to be relisted. The states are proving over and over again they cannot be trusted with the welfare of wolves. As soon as they had the chance  they started persecuting and killing them and continue to do it.

Congress should hang their heads in shame for what they’ve done. Especially the Senate Democrats who vowed they supported the ESA and wolves and turned around and threw Montana and Idaho wolves under the bus, sneakily slipping in a wolf delisting rider into a non-related budget bill, WITHOUT JUDICIAL REVIEW. In one fell swoop they doomed wolves in the Northern Rockies and gutted the ESA. Now any endangered species that becomes inconvenient can be kicked off the list by another “evil rider”. Who’s next? Grizzly bears? Salmon?

But get this, Governor Mead is hoping Congress will ride to Wyoming’s rescue and exempt them from the environmental lawsuits that are sure to ensue when they try to implement their “shoot on sight plan” in the rest of the state. Good luck on that one Wyoming during an election year.

Cynthia Lummis tried  to exempt Wyoming from legal challenges and that ” dog would not hunt”.

  6. I wonder what ever happened to the ‘safe zones’ or the “protected paths” which allows wildlife to migrate from one preservation to another without being killed? These ‘protective paths’ were actually purchased by 4 wealthy businessmen and 1 celebrity – Harrison Ford – about 20 years ago! The CEO of Starbucks, at that time, was one of the businessmen, and I recall a CEO from Mexico who owned the largest cement company in all of Mexico was involved too. These protective paths for migration led from Yellowstone National Park, and continued into South America. This was also a project that had a base in Africa. They used another name (not protective paths)…errr ….my memory!!! I will think of it and post more later!
    Seems that with less than 15% of Americans being hunters and less than 2% being trappers – the great majority has to wake up, get fully involved, demand accountability from our elected officials and take the reigns away from the fringe groups that have all the ‘say’ over our wildlife. We need new blood in congress and the senate who are brave enough to stand up for laws in favor of wildlife and the environment and not go with business as usual.

  9. This has all been outrageous and inexcusable. Yet there does not seem to be any way to stop it. There is a war against wildlife and wolves are not the only victims. The underlying similarity is that no matter how much we try to help, the opposition (backed by conservative government) seems to win. I’m not advocating that we give up trying, but it is so frustrating to see the animals harmed and killed with seemingly no recourse. Big money = power.

One thing is clear- the majority of taxpayers are under assualt from this conservative agenda of the Republican party. Nabeki had posted the list of Senators on the Environmental and Public Works Committee- who unfortunately were responsible for the wolf “outhate” delisting rider…..Who would have thought Democrats would be so cynical as to allow an animal to be stripped of ESA protection in an shortsighted attempt to try to save one senate seat in Montana…..The two issues we must watch closely- is how the Democrats treat the Wyoming issue with regard to the trophy hunt of Yellowstone wolves…..and how they approach the “sportsmen”(all laugh here) Heritage Act of 2012, a bill which is a big gift to the NRA and SCI, who as we all know, are no friends of wildlife. I cannot see for the life of me how Democrats could see any upside to supporting these two extreme issues….

        Here’s the list of the 81 Senators who betrayed wolves and voted to delist them via budget rider. I think it’s important to research who is up for re-election in November and let them know just how the delisting is working out for wolves. Be polite but let them know you won’t be voting for them unless they intend to right the egregious wrong they perpetrated on wolves and call for the relisting of gray wolves, not only in the Northern Rockies but the Great Lakes region as well.

      • Lynn, It’s become patently obvious that wolves must be relisted. The states are proving they are unable to care for wolves and now that they have them in their clutches are looking to reduce their numbers to the bare bones minimum of 100 wolves per state and 10 breeding pairs which is not a viable population. These wolves would be mere ghosts on the landscape, hunted and persecuted for the pleasure of trophy hunters. Our campaign should now be focused on achieving the goal of relisting. Public pressure is the only thing politicians respond to. If the American people demand the relisting of gray wolves and I mean thousands of people, writing to the Senators who delisted the wolves in the first place, letting them know they will not be getting your vote unless they reverse the damage they’ve done to wolves by correcting this egregious error they committed against wolves, all for Jon Testers Senate seat, which in all probability he will lose to Denny Rehberg anyway. All for naught.

        Their are so many brush fires every day concerning wolves it would be virtually impossible to try and tackle them all and the anti wolf crowd knows that. They are doing everything in their power to divert wolf advocates energy and time, keeping them exhausted and burned out from all the bad news that continues to pour in daily. We have to shift gears and go on the offensive. It’s up to each and every wolf advocate to realize if they don’t stand up for wolves now there won’t be any wolves to champion for. Lets get active and show these wolf haters that they may have won the battle but certainly not the war.

        Please check the list of Senators who voted to delist wolves and see who is up for re-election. You can post the results here on the blog and we can start a letter writing campaign to these politicians. There is never a better time to get their attention then before an election.

        PS…If anyone is near Helena, Mt. they need to show up for the Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks meeting on May 10, 2012, where they will be discussing adding trapping to the next wolf hunt. If Montana allows trapping of wolves, the population is certainly doomed, I’m very concerned about the number of wolves that are left after this years hunt. So please anyone that can make it to Helena meeting on May 10th, please show up for the wolves. Let Montana FWP know that we do not want wolves trapped or hunted and we’re sick and tired of the persecution and constant drumbeat of half truths and downright lies told about these animals.

  12. To all Animal Lovers:

    “… wolves need to be re-listed.”

    I agree. To me, this is the only viable, near-term option for saving wolves from the next hunts, starting in August. I will spend all the time I can, as my only endeavor, on making the case for re-listing the wolves as endangered.
    Because they truly are endangered again, this time at the hands of violent animal haters in these states we’re all talking about.

    I have confirmed with a previous Director of U.S. Dept. Fish and Wildlife that Director Ashe, in conjunction with Secretary Salazar can, by themselves, re-list the wolves in all these animal hating states. That can be done at any time, just by a stroke of their pens.

    So… I am beginning a campaign to focus large numbers of animal lovers, and their actions, at the U.S. Dept. Fish and Wildlife and the Dept. of the Interior. I figure there are probably 100 million animal lovers in this country. So my goal is to get all 100 million to raise their voices at the same time on behalf of the wolves to get them re-listed before August, 2012.

    Thanks for listening.

  18. Nabeki, does this so-called flex zone include the parkway between Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks? If wolves can be hunted there, there will truly be no way for them to safely disperse from the parks and I thought they were at least supposed to provide for that. I am also outraged by the Sportsmen’s Heritage Act. It sends chills down my spine that hunting could be allowed in national parks. Maybe that would let wolf hunting occur inside Yellowstone itself. Just a chilling thought.

      Say no to hunting wolves in parkway

      GENE TREMBLAY | Posted: Sunday, March 25, 2012 12:35 pm | (3) Comments

      Since the creation of America’s first national park, Yellowstone, 140 years ago, the National Park Service has operated with the understanding that their primary responsibility is to protect and preserve our nation’s most treasured places in their entirety for the benefit of future generations.

      And by entirety, that means everything, both cultural and natural resources, from historic cabins and structures to the ecosystems and the diverse native wildlife it supports, including gray wolves here in western Wyoming.

      Even though the State Wolf Management plan called for managing wolves as trophy game in Grand Teton National Park, the National Elk Refuge and Rockefeller Parkway, as absurd as that may seem to many, the state has put in writing that they will not hunt wolves in Grand Teton National Park and the Elk Refuge. Thank you for that.

      But, the state of Wyoming additionally says that wolves should not receive this protection and should be hunted inside the John D. Rockefeller Jr. Memorial Parkway, a unit of the National Parks Service. It is inconsistent and makes no sense practically, legally and scientifically.

      Why is this NPS unit different from GTNP or any other NPS unit? Allowing wolves to be hunted inside the Parkway NPS Unit would break an important genetic connection between Yellowstone and Grand Teton and create a hole in the greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, not to mention that it is a corridor traveled by millions of tourists each year that we need for our economy.

      It further creates a dual responsibility between the Park Service and the state that is in direct conflict. That is sure to lead to

      more lawsuits and problems. Practically speaking, this comes as a slap in the face to the hard-fought efforts that have taken place since the mid-1990s to repopulate this native species in the northern Rockies after they were eradicated from the area in the 1920s.

      It was bad management in the past that led to the original eradication of these important animals and by denying them the protections they deserve in this NPS unit, which is a vital connecting place for wolves traveling between Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park; it is another in a long history of mistakes.

      The reintroduction and recovery of the gray wolf in the northern Rockies is one of the greatest conservation success stories in America. In addition to returning a native species to its home, multiple studies have shown that the presence of wolves has many positive impacts on the land, creating healthier landscapes and more sustainable ungulate population levels.

      Additionally, they attract more visitors to our towns and businesses who want to see this graceful animal in its native habitat. These visitors bring money and help support the economies of gateway communities around the parks. With these pluses, it is disturbing to see how eager the state of Wyoming is to have an open season on the gray wolf as soon as it falls off the Endangered Species List, which could be as early as this September.

      And while Wyoming may desire to hunt wolves within national park units, it remains within the National Park Service’s authority to determine what happens within park boundaries. This sets us up for a battle that we don’t need to have.

      It is critical that the state of Wyoming correct this inconsistency and Department of the Interior and the NPS stand up for protecting these wolves inside national parks and, specifically, that there not be hunting of wolves inside the John D. Rockefeller Jr. Memorial Parkway.

      National parks are special places; they should serve as safe refuges for native species and especially for those that have just now recovered enough to be taken off the Endangered Species List. They should not serve as hunting grounds for an animal that has taken more than 80 years to restore.

      When visitors come to Yellowstone, Grand Teton and the John D. Rockefeller Jr. Memorial Parkway they expect to see elk, antelope, bears, bison, deer and wolves. Wolves are valued as a park species, worthy of the same protections afforded to other species within national parks.

      Wyoming may have the right to manage wolves at minimal levels in other parts of the state, but that should not give them the ability to hunt wolves in our national parks.

Are you planning to do something like this? If so, be sure to send it through on fb. We need to act BEFORE the Fall. Thankx!

  32. Noooo! We have to stop these horrid wolf hunts! How can I enjoy my birthday when I know more hunts have just begun!? I feel sick to my stomach just thinking about the disgusting things that are being done to our nation’s wolves. I completely agree that the states cannot be trusted with the welfare of wolves and that we must get this beautiful animal back on the endangered list before its too late.
