Lets get some Real Info out here, first USFWS ran on an old Nepa Study to kill Phoenix, second, the News Reported it as it was the White Mtn Apache that requested she be ‘Slaughtered” After speaking with WMA Game and Fish, We know that is not a true statement. Further We warned them about the picture that was being painted about them in the news.
They claim there are 113 wolves in Arizona and New Mexico with an additional 30-35 in Mexico, however with the recent poaching and slaughtering, We would have to call to question their number.
Sherry Barrett wouldn’t know a Wolf Plan if it bit her on her backside it appears. Further, ESA says over their historical Range, they are not even 20% of their historical range currently. And we would have to ask why these Govt Agencies continue to Ignore Science as is within their mandates under the Trusts? Why do they continue to either disregard, or not allow public comment?
If you want to get something done in Court, We have the attorneys and Research waiting. We need 57,400 paid members and we will begin putting 1 state in court each month!! Clearly the only talk these Government Agencies comprehend is Language from a Judge!! Take back your power as The Public and join Us to put these Crooked Agencies In COURT today, before it is too late Tomorrow!!
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service released a plan Wednesday to revive the dwindling population of Mexican gray wolves, but some environmental advocates fear the measures are not enough.
The Associated Press reported that the plan sets a goal of having an average of 320 Mexican gray wolves in the wild over an eight-year period before the animal can be removed from the endangered species list. Officials estimate recovery could take another two decades and nearly $180 million.
Belton nature enthusiast Waldo Montgomery makes several trips per year to Yellowstone National Park to observe wolves. He said the plan to save wolves in the Southwest is insufficient.
“A lot of people — and I’m inclined to agree with them — believe it’s probably a plan in name only. If they follow through with that plan, it’s probably a recipe for extinction for the Mexican gray wolves than it is for recovery,” Montgomery said.
“This isn’t a recovery plan, it’s a blueprint for disaster for Mexican gray wolves,” conservation advocate Michael Robinson said in a release. “By limiting their habitat and stripping protections too soon, this plan ignores the science and ensures Mexican wolves never reach sufficient numbers to be secure.”
Montgomery said experts believe the identified study area is too small.
“A lot of the scientific community believes there should be three populations of Mexican gray wolves in the United States, but the plan limits the expansion of the gray wolves to south of Interstate 40. The scientific community has recommended that there should be two other populations,” he said.
Montgomery added that the wolves play an important role in nature as they help regulate the population of deer and elk.
“For eons, (the wolves) have kept the deer and elk population healthy. Now they’ve got problems. Wolves have a unique ability to single out sick and old animals rather than healthy elk,” Montgomery said.
Without a vibrant wolf population to weed out sick animals, Montgomery said diseases have started to spread among deer and elk.
“Wolves can take those that have diseases out of the herd long before the elk show any sign of being sick,” he said.
Even with the criticism, Sherry Barrett of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is optimistic that the plan will yield positive results.
“I know that with most things having to do with wolves, there’s going to be a lot of strong opinions on both sides,” Barrett told the Associated Press. “But to us, it is a big step forward for us to have something in place to start working toward and working with the public to achieve.”
