Congress: Gray wolves still endangered in Michigan

*Editor’s Note* – I remember very well a few years back, when efforts, of which I was a part of, to go to the source of the problem and amend the Endangered Species Act, were derailed by corrupt politics. I said back then that abandoning this effort, of which many people had worked many years on, in favor of attaching a rider to a budget omnibus bill to delist wolves in Idaho and Montana, would not solve any of the real problems and would eventually come back and bite us all in the ass. The corrupt politicians, using their phony outdoor sportsmen groups (most also eager to play corrupt politics) destroyed our efforts. And, where are we now?

Am I bitter? Yes, I am. Wouldn’t you be? The Endangered Species Act is almost 43 years old and is in need of revamping or repealing. It is NOT working to “save” endangered species. It IS working to put money in Environmentalist’s bank accounts and to promote scarcity and corruption.

There is little hope for anything good when both sides approach politics with different words to achieve the same result of corruption.

Expect nothing to change!

Some lawmakers from the affected states had hoped to attach a rider to return management of wolves in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan and Wyoming to the states, which could have opened the door to a resumption of wolf hunting in those places. The provision would have undone federal court decisions that restored the animals’ protected status in the four states despite repeated efforts by the federal government to remove them from the list.
