Earthjustice attorney, Doug Honnold, filed a lawsuit on behalf of environmental groups to block a federal rule that would allow state wildlife agents to kill more endangered gray wolves in the Northern Rockies.

The plaintiff in the case are the Defenders of Wildlife, the Natural Resources Defense Council, the Sierra Club, the Center for Biological Diversity, the Humane Society of the United States, the Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance, and Friends of the Clearwater.

quote:

Steve Nadeau, wolf biologist with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, said the groups that filed the lawsuit were "playing the fear card" to stop state management of the predator.

"The state has promised wolves are here to stay," he said. "It's time to start managing them as any other big game animals."

source

From another article:

quotes:

Ed Bangs, wolf recovery coordinator with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, said the groups’ claims are not true.

"The rhetoric is a little sad," he said. "The 10(j) is not going to affect the number of wolves in the Rocky Mountains. It’s not going to result in the deaths of hundreds of wolves. It’s spin to get the troops lined up to oppose delisting." 

"They’ve lowered the bar so low, all the states have to prove is that wolves are a factor in the reduction of the elk population," Stone said.

source

The words are very "loose" in the 10j regarding wolf management.  Here is one:  In the 2005 rule, unacceptable impact is defined as "decline in a wild ungulate population or herd, primarily caused by wolf predation."  Under the new rule, unacceptable impact would be redefined to be an "impact to a wild ungulate population or herd, with wolves as one of the major causes of the population or herd not meeting established state or tribal population or herd management goals."

Has anyone heard the state of Idaho promise wolves are here to stay?Watching from the sidelinesProtestSorry Nadeau have you met Butch?Mad
