Dear Director Ashe,
I am writing to you in your capacity as Director of US Fish and Wildlife Services to request in the most urgent manner possible that USFWS maintain the Endangered Species Act protection for gray wolves currently protected under the Act. I do NOT accept in any way, based on any information provided, that wolves are recovered as a species. Wolves have only returned to 5% of their former habitat; this is strictly politically motivated as I am sure you are well aware. If not politically motivated, then why is it the bald eagle was delisted in 2007, but we have not allowed open hunting and trapping? Why then are we even contemplating doing that with wolves? The stated goal of the Endangered Species Act is to save species from extinction and to fully recover the species by removing threats to its survival.
Director Ashe, I hope your decisions on the gray wolf will echo the integral role you played in responding to a 2005 complaint that agency geologist had botched an evaluation of the habitant needs of panthers. The protection of the gray wolf against those who would seek to completely remove them from the landscape, from their rightful homeland, certainly deserves no less.
To submit your comments please follow the link provided.
