Interior ends endangered species protections for gray wolves

Source: The Hill

The Trump administration removed endangered species protections for the gray wolf Thursday, paving the way for hunting of the species even as environmentalists argue it has not yet recovered.

The rule from the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) lifts protections for the wolves in the continental U.S., except for a small band of Mexican gray wolves present in Arizona and New Mexico.

The move ends more than 45 years of protections for the species — something that has been opposed by conservation groups and members of Congress.

“After more than 45 years as a listed species, the gray wolf has exceeded all conservation goals for recovery. Today’s announcement simply reflects the determination that this species is neither a threatened nor endangered species based on the specific factors Congress has laid out in the law,” Interior Secretary David Bernhardt said in a statement.

1. Biden will reverse that quickly

The republicans enjoy gassing and/or shooting wolf pups in their dens, it only stands to reason that it’s time to kill off the survivors of the den.

13. Hear of the urban legend that every time you wear a t-shirt with a wolf on it,

a cowboy wets his chaps.

Ditch beef, let the assholes go bankrupt.

15. The Obama admin also tried that:

In 2013, the Obama administration also proposed to delist gray wolves, saying that the species had rebounded to the point where they were no longer at risk of extinction and should be managed by state and tribal governments.
