Wolves In Court Again

November 14, 2012 Greater Yellowstone, Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming No Comments
Earthjustice

A coalition of environmental groups represented by Earthjustice yesterday again filed a lawsuit in Washington D.C., seeking to have the transfer of the management of wolves in Wyoming turned back to the feds.  At issue once again is the question of wolves being classified as “predators” in areas outside specific trophy game areas in Northwestern, Wyoming where they are protected.  Defenders of Wildlife, Natural Resources Defense Council, Sierra Club and Center for Biological Diversity maintain in their lawsuit the arrangement sets a dangerous precedent for other parts of the county.  Wyoming Governor Mead, meanwhile reacted to the suit saying the groups are ignoring the state’s successful efforts since taking over management in October and are suing based simply on what they wanted.  Mead points out that Wyoming set up a conservative hunt and will easily maintain the necessary wolf population.

  • GPS will sometimes lead you to astray - August 29, 2014
    At the risk of sounding like I’ve been watching too much Top Gear, I need to go off on a bit of a rant right now. The good folks at Nissan let me drive a Titan for two full months, which was really nice of them. And it’s done a pretty good job of filling […]
