Farmers are concerned that the reintroduced predator will kill livestock, but research from other countries shows these fears are unfounded

 

 

Wolves and the Endangered Species Act   Leave a comment

PunditSource

The Endangered Species Act was written into law in 1973. Since then it has successfully protected 99% of the species that fall into the “endangered” and “threatened” categories of the law. For this article in particular we will be focusing on the different species of wolves that are protected by this law.

Prior to the wolf being added to the Endangered Species list they were hunted to near extinction in North America and Mexico. Currently in America there are around 9,000 wolves populating the country, thanks in great part to the protections afforded them against hunters and poachers. However there is a current push on the State and National levels to reverse or otherwise dismantle the law protecting not only wolves but 2,179 other species of animals that face possible extinction within North America due to human activity.

Over the past couple of years some states such as Idaho, Montana…

26 scientists are urging the western Great Lakes population of gray wolves be removed from protections of the Endangered Species Act   Leave a comment

With a heavy heart and incredible disappointment, I chose this image to share with you today. The image contains a quote from one of the scientists betraying our wolves by urging the western Great Lakes population of gray wolves be removed from protections of the Endangered Species Act.
26 scientists, including Dave Mech of the University of Minnesota and Adrian Wydeven of the Timber Wolf Alliance, argue the species has successfully recovered in Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin and should be delisted.
“It is in the best interests of gray wolf conservation and for the integrity of the Endangered Species Act for wolves to be delisted in the western Great Lakes states where biological recovery has occurred and where adequate regulatory mechanisms are in place to manage the species,” wrote the scientists in a letter delivered Wednesday to Sally Jewell, Secretary of the Department of Interior, and Dan Ashe, director of…

Grand Rapids, Mich. – Michigan’s 2015 bear hunting season ended in October with fewer incidents than last year of hunting dogs being attacked by wolves. Only three attacks were reported to the state, down from 17 in the 2014 season, state wildlife officials said.

“It’s tough to speculate about why,” said Kevin Swanson, wolf and bear specialist for the Michigan DNR. “Livestock depredation reports are down too. We had 23 of those last year and only 11 so far this year. It’s possible that wolf numbers have declined, but we don’t know that and plan to do a wolf survey this winter.”

Michigan’s wolf population was last tallied in 2014. The DNR survey showed a minimum of 636 wolves in the Upper Peninsula. There were approximately 125 wolf packs…

Wolves may be recovered enough to delist but are individual states prepared to protect them?    Leave a comment

Point counter point:

The newest debate on the fate of America’s wolves comes in the form of a letter…”The 18 November (2015) letter, sent to Interior Secretary Sally Jewell and Dan Ashe, director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), is intended to support the federal government’s position that wolves in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan are fully recovered and that states should now manage the species.”Science Insider

The letter from 26 scientists states that wolves have recovered enough in the Great Lakes region and do not need protection under the Endangered Species Act.

Recovery of wolves has made great strides over the last 4 decades in the region with a population of over 3,700 wolves.

That is until 2011 when wolves were officially delisted in the Great Lakes and states like Wisconsin rushed to enact emergncy…
