Colorado Republican Rep. Cory Gardner is demanding an emergency waiver from the Endangered Species Act for a species of mouse that threatens to delay flood recovery in Colorado.
The Prebles Meadow Jumping Mouse is a threatened species under the ESA, meaning that any governmental actionsuch as flood recoverymust first consider potential impacts on the tiny animals habitat, even if that habitat was also destroyed in the flood that wiped out entire Colorado communities in September.
On Monday, the Federal Emergency Management Agency sent a notice to Colorado officials that the presence of the mouse in the flood zone may cause some delay in projects undertaken in the Prebles mouse habitat.

“The Prebles Meadow Jumping Mouse is a threatened species “
Uh...NO! It was long ago admitted it is NOT a seperate “species”!!!!!
This was clear LONG before it was admitted.
I’m pretty sure the flood rocked his poor little world much more violently than any recovery efforts ever will.
Is this the one that spreads the Hanta virus?
Not only have the states never delegated to Congress, via the Constitution, the specific power to legislatively address protect endangered animal species, but why don’t scientists clone endangered species and not worry about them?
In the meantime the Post offices in Drake and Ward are still closed.
Possibly... and the H1N1 flu virus too.
People need to get used to the idea that their very existence , in some way, causes “harm” to others. Mice or whatever. But are they willing to give up their cars and electronic devices and whatnot to live in harmony with nature and take their chances? Not likely. When you see your life as no more nor no less valuable than that of any insignificant creature, then you can preach. Better yet, be at peace with the world and STFU.
"In reply, Larimer County Commissioner Steve Johnson said he hoped all the mice drowned."
I was mumbling to myself about this “ Prebles Meadow Jumping Mouse”. I looked over to my snake cage and one of the Black Mambas started to drool. I kid you not!
Just another example of His Arrogance’s FEMA, Interior and EPA hate for white taxpaying American citizens.
Notice that you never hear about the oppression of Gerbils by butt pirates anymore?
A guy from FEMA came around wanting to know if I'd like to sign up for assistance. I told him my basement was flooded and I lost my carpet, padding and a few possessions but it was due to a plugged french drain not a direct consequence of flooding. He said that didn't matter. I said it did and made it real clear that I didn't want any help from the FedMob. He was a bit taken aback and as he turned to leave said he'd be back. Luckily for me he didn't hear my response to that but he hasn't been back.
They've just got to give that money away! Unless of course you live in NJ and your entire house is gone.
Send all of the Prebles mice to Denver. They will take care of them there.
Yep. When I first bought a house here in Colorado that stupid vermin was considered “endangered”, later the liberals admitted it wasn’t endangered.
Oh, if only the EPA was truly “endangered”.
As I recall, this same Mighty Mouse held up construction on the Denver International Airport for months. Cost millions of dollars ...
