Wildlife service suspends plan to allow killing of gray wolves
UPI ^ | Feb. 8, 2014

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has backed off plans to remove gray wolves from the endangered species list.

...

The government plan would have allowed gray wolves in the lower 48 United States to be hunted or killed.

They have been under federal protection since 1967. The Mexican gray wolf, found only in the Southwest, retains protection.

While coyotes are still classified as varmints, as they all should be.

We had a wolf season here in Michigan this year. Two were taken on opening day.

Then the Federal Government should be required to make payments to ranchers for any livestock taken by wolves.

Ranchers have requested the removal of livestock killing packs but with the support of the animal rights movement USFWS have deigned to remove only one female despite the fact that every pack meets the rule definition of problem wolf, under the Federal Rule currently guiding the program.

Last year, rancher Corwin Hulsey lost over sixteen thousand dollars to wolves and was compensated a tenth of that amount by the federally managed, compensation interdiction program. Ranchers are going out of business in the Mexican wolf reintroduction area at an alarming rate loosing livestock, losing income, losing sleep while their stock suffers horrific injuries and even more horrible death to wolf attack.

The communities lose as well, jobs, opportunities, and tax base to grow the wolf program. On December 2 a small rancher located in Eastern Catron county was forced to put down his best saddle horse due to injuries sustained by a wolf attack.

IIRC, the Third Amendment forbid gubment quartering solders in private homes/land.

How then can the quartering of a dangerous beast be Constitutional?

A very sad situation exists in the country and that is the current president and his appointees running the government in league with ideologues.

They include leftists, Marxists, socialists, communists, activists of all kinds including enviros, animal rights, immigration, etc.

The common hardworking Americans don’t have a say and that has got to change, one way or another.

The Mexican gray wolf, found only in the Southwest, retains protection.

Under the circumstances I would have to see more documentation regarding this.

Further reading required but this subspecies IS NOT the Mackenzie Valley wolf reintroduced to Yellowstone. FWIW this article only points to the Mexican grey wolf.

Anyone reading this who knows anything about me knows my objections to the reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone.

A School bus stop in New Mexico is a cage to keep wolves from eating the kids. Shows you who is in charge too.

still a bounty on wolves in Alberta, can hunt them anytime. I was looking for some today, but my partner had to work, so I didn’t get too crazy solo, I’ll make a better effort soon heh.

The colonies around here pay 600 a wolf.

They’re hoping that some wolves will cross the ice to Isle Royal this winter to repopulate the island.

They're still taking comments about introducing the Mexican Gray Wolf in my neck of the woods (NW Arizona).

You would think that the urban statists in charge of the disastrous reintro in SE AZ would have learned something. But, no. This is about pushing their green, anti-human agenda.

I'll keep you guys posted if I hear anything new.

wolves and hydatid disease due to Echinococcosis granulosus tape worms. Two thirds of wolves examined now contain this pest. The eggs last 25 years in soil and can be inhaled in dust.
