Wolves may not be a protected species anymore?
A legal battle has been raging in the Federal Court since January 2008 to determine the fate of the Gray Wolf in the Northern Rockies.
On March 6th 2009. US Interior Secretary Ken Salazar approved the former Bush Administration's plan to eliminate Endangered Species Act protections for wolves in Idaho and Montana.
This decision could lead to the death of more than 600 wolves.
This is what I have heard.
Much as I do support the wolf, and wolf lifestyle, and also the reintroduction of the wolf has affected the environment positively, restoring flora and fauna species where they had been absent for decades....I do realize this story has more than 1 side to it.
It would be interesting to hear other viewpoints about this, particularly if anyone could be directly affected (such as they farm in those regions where the wolf has been protected for awhile) -and the impact this may have had on their livelihood.
