Environmentalists Aren’t Taking Proposed “Blanket Wolf Delisting” Lying Down….

If the wolf haters think advocates are looking the other way while they systematically dismantle wolf recovery across the US, they better think twice. As I stated in my previous post the anti-wolf brigade is going in for the kill, they want wolves delisted across the lower 48, which would effectively stop wolf recovery in its tracks. Wolves already face daunting odds dispersing outside the “kill zone” of the hostile wolf states. Even with federal protection they usually end up dead, shot by hunters who almost always claim ” I thought it was a coyote” excuse.

A bow hunter killed the animal near the Franklin Island Conservation Area last year. On Wednesday, the state’s Conservation Department confirmed it was a wolf and not a coyote.

 The same fate was shared by the amazing little Mill Creek Pack wolf, 314f. who traveled 1000 miles from her home in Montana,  to a lonely hillside in Colorado, aptly called  “No Name Ridge”, where her bones were found. Two years later it was announced she was poisoned by the deadly compound 1080, one of the horrific poisons Wildlife Services uses in its arsenal to kill our wildlife.

Can you imagine the carnage if wolves were systematically delisted across the lower 48? They can’t catch a break now,  when they’re  federally protected.  The USFWS has no reason to take this action against wolves. Wolf recovery is not even close to being accomplished and in fact it’s going in reverse due to USFWS removing their federal protections and turning them over to hostile state management. The pressure to delist is coming from the rabid wolf haters, who believe “the only good wolf is a dead wolf”. Where is the science in that USFWS? I won’t hold my breath waiting for an answer.

Environmentalists band together to defend gray wolves

A U.S. Fish and Wildlife report last year proposed dropping wolves from the endangered list in most areas where they’re known not to live, triggering an outcry.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Western environmental groups say they’re alarmed that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is considering a plan to end federal protections for gray wolves in vast areas where the animals no longer exist.

The groups say ending federal protections would keep wolves from expanding their range back into states that could support them, including Colorado and California.

“As a matter of principle, I just think it’s wrong,” said Jay Tutchton, a Colorado lawyer with the group WildEarth Guardians.

Tutchton’s group has sued over recent action to end federal protections for wolves in Wyoming. Wolves in most of the “Cowboy State” are classified as unprotected predators and scores have been killed since federal protections ended last fall.

“The Endangered Species Act was designed to protect species, including in places where they no longer reside,” Tutchton said. “You were supposed to try to recover them, not throw in the towel.”

The Fish and Wildlife Service could announce as soon as this spring whether it will propose a blanket delisting of wolves in most of the lower 48 states. Wolves in the Northern Rockies and around the Great Lakes, where reintroduced populations are well-established, are already off the Endangered Species List.
