I'm sure that this will be treated respectfully and...nah. A few people in Montana should have the wolves extirpated in a few short years again. We have a few spares in Canada, we can send more later.

Do you think there is an ulterior motive behind this decision?

Yes, I do.

Yes, I do.

The ranchers in the area were pretty effective at getting rid of wolves the first time--and they've lobbied since the reintroduction to be able to hunt them down again. It won't take long.

I've recently been notified of this:
"With the introduction of a bill that would force Washington, Oregon and Utah’s wolves off the Endangered Species List, the number of states that could be subject to congressional delisting has risen to seven. If enacted, these bills would leave nearly every wolf in the nation at the mercy of the states.

Congress has no business deciding whether wolves, or any other species, should be listed. The law is clear on this point. Listing decisions are to be based on science.

Tell Congress to stop interfering with efforts to protect endangered species!

These delisting bills are being driven by a small group of extremists and anti-government ideologues who are pouring millions of dollars into fat cat lobbyists and pressure tactics.

Among the worst of these bills are:

H.R. 843 which yanks Endangered Species Act (ESA) protections from wolves in Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin indefinitely.

H.R. 884 ousts Wyoming’s wolves from the Endangered Species List along with wolves in Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin. And to add insult to injury, the bill would prevent any court, even the Supreme Court, from reinstating ESA protections no matter how bad things got. 

H.R. 1985 goes further still by delisting wolves in Washington, Utah and Oregon – and would even prohibit the states from enacting certain protections for the wolves within their borders!

These bills cannot be allowed to pass."


Please, if you can, send a message to support this and help to stop Congress meddling with matters that are beyond them.
