Trump Administration Moving to Strip Protection From Wolves Across Country

The Trump administration this week confirmed it is considering a proposal to strip Endangered Species Action protection from nearly all wolves in the lower 48 states, including the Great Lakes region, making the animals vulnerable to trophy hunting and trapping.

MINNEAPOLIS— The Trump administration this week confirmed it is considering a proposal to strip Endangered Species Action protection from nearly all wolves in the lower 48 states, including the Great Lakes region, making the animals vulnerable to trophy hunting and trapping.

Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual An email statement from Gavin Shire, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s chief of public affairs, said the agency has begun reviewing the status of the gray wolf under the Endangered Species Act and expects to publish a proposal to revise the wolf’s status “by the end of the calendar year.”

“It’s deeply troubling to see the Trump administration trying to prematurely kick wolves off the endangered species list,” said Collette Adkins, a Minneapolis-based biologist and attorney with the Center for Biological Diversity. “Time and again the courts have told the Service that wolves need further recovery before their protections can be removed. But the agency is dead-set on appeasing special interests who want to kill these amazing animals.”

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewThe Fish and Wildlife Service last removed protections for gray wolves in the Great Lakes region in 2011. Hundreds of wolves then died during wolf trophy hunting and trapping seasons that followed in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan.

Then, in 2013, the Service proposed removing gray wolf protections in the rest of the country. That included California, Oregon and Washington, where small populations are still recovering, and the southern Rockies and Adirondacks, which have suitable wolf habitat but no wolves.

And last year a federal appellate court upheld the lower court decision, reasoning the Service unlawfully ignored how removal of wolf protections in the Great Lakes region could harm recovery of wolves in other areas, such as New England and the Dakotas.

Limited Government) (Volume 1)  The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)  The Service’s statement explains that the court’s reinstatement of wolf protections in the Great Lakes region “prevented the Service from moving forward with the full delisting proposal at that time.”

Last year the Service applied to Yellowstone grizzly bears that piecemeal delisting approach that it unsuccessfully used for wolves. The agency designated a Greater Yellowstone “distinct population segment” and removed grizzly protections in that region. Conservation and tribal organizations challenged the removal of grizzly bear protections, relying largely on court decisions reversing the Service’s similar approach for wolves.

If the Service succeeds in its efforts to prematurely remove protections for wolves and grizzlies, for the first time in generations trophy hunters in the United States could kill them in nearly all places they live.

“Like so many Americans, I treasure having wolves and grizzlies in the wild and don’t want to see them shot and trapped for blood sport or pelts,” said Adkins. “We’re ready for a fight, and we’re going to do all that we can to make sure the feds fulfill their obligation to restore wolves and grizzlies across the country.”

  2. It is a good start and I hope they go thru with it. I have never had a problem with any rancher shooting a wolf that was going after his calves. They used to have a saying in the West–“shoot, shovel, and shutup!” I don’t know if they still do or not, but I don’t disagree with the sentiment.
