Great Lakes wolves ordered returned to endangered list

Postby Fitter » Fri Dec 19, 2014 6:06 pm

A federal judge has overturned an Obama administration decision to remove the gray wolf population in the western Great Lakes region from the endangered species list.

The order affects wolves in Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service removed federal protections from those wolves in 2012 and handed over management to the states.

In an order Friday, U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell ruled that the removal was "arbitrary and capricious" and violates the federal Endangered Species Act.

Yes this infuriates me as well.

Our issue here is we have to fight our own state besides these "dickweeds".

Here in the U.P. we're 1/3 of our state's land mass but we only have 3% of the state's population. And we like it that way! Nearly everyone has seen or seen signs of wolves or had encounters with wolves in the U.P. But the opposition is always trying to stop wolf hunting in any fashion, pleading their case to downstaters below the Mackinac bridge. You can't find a damn wolf downstate but you can find plenty of sympathetic people to the plight of the poor wolf depicted as running for it's life from us gun-happy Yoopers!

For those who want a little more info here's the press release from Wisconsin DNR.

MADISON - In response to a lawsuit brought against the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, the Federal District Court for the District of Columbia has vacated a 2012 decision, which delisted wolves as an endangered species.

This decision returns wolves in the Great Lakes Region, including Wisconsin, to the Federal Endangered Species List.

Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and Department of Justice legal staff are reviewing the decision to determine how it will impact Wisconsin's wolf management program. Further information will be available following this review.

Immediate implications of this ruling include the following:

Permits which allow lethal removal of wolves issued to landowners experiencing wolf conflicts are no longer valid. The department will contact permit holders to alert them.

The department is not authorized to use lethal control as part of its conflict management program. Non-lethal tools and depredation compensation remain available. Those experiencing conflicts with wolves should contact the United States Department of Agriculture - Wildlife Service for conflict investigation and management assistance. USDA Wildlife Services can be reached at 800-228-1368 in northern Wisconsin or 800-433-0663 in southern Wisconsin.

Wisconsin's law allowing landowners or occupants of the land to shoot wolves that are in the act of depredating domestic animals on private property is no longer in force. Landowners may not kill wolves in the act of attacking domestic animals.

Under Federal Law, you cannot use dogs to track and train on wolves.

Wisconsin is not authorized to implement a wolf harvest season.

While the department is disappointed by this decision, we will continue to support USFWS and their original decision to delist and remain confident in the State of Wisconsin's ability to manage our wolf population.

This is great news! When they were delisted you had a quota of 150 wolves now that we have gone back to the SSS season there are no quotas.
People will protect their property in the north. Always have.
When all else fails, keep shooting!
