USFWS in Very Hot Water Over False ESA Protections of Hybrid Red Wolves

Finally, what appears to be some action on this biological catastrophe and a complete bastardization of the Endangered Species Act (ESA). Some of us have known for a long time that the wild, mongrel dog that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) perpetuated and placed in portions of North Carolina, under a program we were told was to “restore” red wolves to their native range, was a lie. Apparently the U.S. Attorney General’s Office has documentation that the USFWS knew that the animal they were using was not a red wolf, but presented as such, which is a violation of the ESA.

The USFWS has filed criminal charges against citizens for allegedly harming a “protected” species, as well as levying fines, etc., knowing full well the animal was not a legally protected species. The U.S. Attorney General wants all such cases vacated and all costs for damages, fines, etc. reimbursed to those victims.

This can only come as a huge victory to those in North Carolina who have fought for years to get this travesty brought to justice.

Perhaps this will start the ball rolling to investigate the fake Mexican wolf and the laws that were broken by many people when gray wolves in Canada were trapped and illegally transported to the U.S. for introduction, bringing with them diseases. The money used for the wolf introduction in the Yellowstone Region was stolen from Pittman-Robertson Excise Tax. This act has never been investigated and prosecuted. Maybe it’s time.

      I’m sure they fail to see the travesty in what the USFWS has been doing. Because they won’t, can’t see this, one has to wonder if they really care about the actual protection of a legitimate species is or is about loving animals more than man and/or seeking power to take away those things other enjoy, like hunting?

      It will be interesting to see how far this goes and what, if any, consequences will follow. Will heads roll? Will jobs be taken away?

    Yes, a win for the good guys. And yes, may this lead to examination of the extirpation of the Timber Wolf in the Northern Rocky Mountain DPS by the importation of the Canadian Grey Wolf and the associated diseases. Also the theft of Pittman-Robertson funds to accomplish what was and is an illegal act.

    It should come to no ones surprise that there are elements within the federal government that will lie to get the end results they want. Recent examples – IRS & conservative non-profits, National Park Service’s (NPS) Lassen Volcanic National Park (LAVO) employees destroying/shredded trail-related documents that should have been maintained during a lawsuit regarding the death of a child.

    Yosemite National Park Superintendent Don Neubacher forced to resign after congressional hearings revealed that In Yosemite National Park today, dozens of people, the majority of whom are women, are being bullied, belittled, disenfranchised and marginalized from their roles as dedicated professionals. In addition, investigators are likely to find accounts of women and men being publicly humiliated by the superintendent, intimidated in front of colleagues and having their professional credibility and integrity minimized or questioned.
    Patty Neubacher, the wife of deposed Yosemite National Park Superintendent Don Neubacher, abruptly retired from a top regional park service job overseeing Yosemite effective Nov 1, 2016 after employees had expressed fear that they would become targets if they filed a complaint with the regional headquarters.
    Don Neubacher was also the Superintendent of Point Reyes National Seashore who destroyed the Drakes Bay Oster business.

    After serious allegations of sexual harassment and financial mismanagement in Yellowstone NP were investigated, Yellowstone’s Deputy Superintendent Steven F. Iobst retired on September 30, 2016. A very unusual move for Federal employees who usually retire right after the new year to save on taxes.

    Way too many other instances of mismanagement and criminal activities by upper level Federal employees, a book needs to be written.
