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.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
