Bank Robbers and USFWS

*Editor’s Note* – Below is a continuation of the letters and emails being sent by Jet Ferebee concerning the illegal introduction of fake red wolves (mongrel hybrids) onto private property; an illegal act and one in which the North Carolina fish and game has resolved and instructed the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to remove those wolves from private property.

The question in my mind becomes obvious. If, as is indicated, USFWS Director Ashe has halted mongrel introduction and if there is actually an investigation, realistically, what can and will be done?

I’m reminded of a lower court ruling of Wyoming Farm Bureau v. Babbitt. Back shortly after Federal criminals illegally introduced gray wolves into the Northern Rocky Mountains “Distinct Population Segment,” a “Non Essential Experimental” population of wolves, initially the court ruled the introduction violated the Endangered Species Act and ordered wolves removed. But of course, we operate within a rigged system and a simple appeal solved the problem and allowed the illegal introduction to stand and no criminal charges have ever been brought, as they should be.

There is a decided difference – at least as I see it – in the fake red wolf illegal introduction. It appears that Ferebee has vetted lots of information, some of which is provided below, that shows that the USFWS admittedly introduced fake mongrel wolves onto private land – a violation of the ESA and the Final Rules of the Federal Register.

But within a rigged system, will that matter any? More than likely not. The United States Federal Government, seemingly at every level, has undertaken criminal activities with absolutely no checks and balances or rule of law. It is prevalent in the White House, why then, would it not be prevalent in dealing with mongrel wild dogs forced illegally onto private property?

My hats off to Ferebee for his hard work and persistence, however, I think, short of a miracle, Ferebee might be in for a disappointment. In addition to his written proof that USFWS illegally introduced fake red wolves, the North Carolina government wants those wolves removed. Any bets as to who wins out in that battle? Ultimately the courts will decide and we know the Courts are part of a rigged system. Environmentalism will win out – it always does.

The point to all of this, is the hope that readers might just begin to open their eyes enough to see what is actually before them. Our government is operating as a criminal enterprise; like a gang of thugs, trampling over rights and the rule of law.

Please understand this and speak up about it, for surely our destruction is at hand.

Director Ashe,

Your news release on June 30th, “Service Halts Red Wolf Reintroductions Pending Examination of Recovery Program”, was a step in the right direction and I sincerely thank you. In your news release, it was stated that USFWS would also strictly operate the Red Wolf Recovery Program within the Federal rules for this nonessential experimental program.

With this in mind, do you remember your Solicitor’s letter?

MirandaLetter

And do you remember the resolution from our State’s NCWRC?
Resolve

As Director of USFWS, what is your immediate action plan to remove these illegal “wolves”?

For USFWS to ignore our North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission and not remove these illegal “wolves” is certainly not in keeping with your most recent commitment to strictly follow your own Federal rules. You are also certainly not regaining any trust by continuing to make more empty promises to the citizens of North Carolina.

As a matter of fact, this would be akin to a bank robber finally getting caught and then telling the judge he will not rob any more banks, but he fully intends to keep the money he has stolen so far.

The citizens of North Carolina await your response and action plan for the immediate removal of these illegal “wolves” in keeping with your commitment to operate within the Federal rules for this program.

Sincerely,
Jett Ferebee

Groups Fight Bureaucracy Over Endangered Bird That Was Never in Danger

Bad science and corrupt bureaucrats turned a beautiful migratory songbird that nests only in Texas into a 1990s terror that good science and concerned citizens are now fighting to exonerate.

The songbird is the golden-cheeked warbler and the fear it instills comes from its status as an endangered species protected by a bureaucracy that confiscates property, bankrupts businesses and imprisons decent people – and we now know that the warbler was never endangered at all.

HSUS Petition Fails to Fracture Alliances

Press Release from the U.S. Sportsman’s Alliance:

On June 30, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service rejected a petition by the Humane Society of the United States concerning the listing of gray wolves under the Endangered Species Act. The petition requested that the status of gray wolves across the contiguous United States be changed from “endangered” to “threatened,” excepting Mexican wolves in the Southwest, which would remain as endangered status. HSUS couched this request under the guise of attempting to appear moderate and in search of compromise. Neither is true and the Sportsmen’s Alliance applauds USFWS for seeing it as an unwarranted smokescreen.

“This petition was nothing less than the radical HSUS trying to push its agenda on yet another wildlife management issue that they are in no way qualified to deal with,” said Nick Pinizzotto, Sportsmen’s Alliance president and CEO. “There is no room for misguided emotion when it comes to managing wildlife, and USFW clearly agrees.”

By proposing to list wolves as threatened, HSUS hoped to split the powerful alliance of sportsmen, agriculture and wildlife professionals. Under a “threatened” listing, more leeway exists to manage wolves preying on livestock. However, this “compromise” is not based on facts or science, and would, as a practical matter, would prevent proper wolf management that includes hunting.

With wolf populations rapidly expanding, and no other scientific reason to keep gray wolves listed under the protections of the Endangered Species Act, USFWS correctly rejected the petition.

“This petition is just another example of the tactics these groups will use to manipulate the Endangered Species Act,” said Evan Heusinkveld, vice president of government affairs for Sportsmen’s Alliance. “FWS has once again correctly found that there is no evidence that wolves outside the Southwest are either threatened or endangered.”

Not only has USFWS rejected the petition, in their evaluation of the evidence, they found that hunting is not a threat to wolves because state management plans put limits on hunting if population levels drop – just as with every other species of wildlife throughout the nation that enjoys scientific management.

In February, the Sportsmen’s Alliance and our partners appealed a misguided and shortsighted federal ruling made on Dec. 20 that put wolves back under federal protection.

“The court’s decision to reinstate federal protections until wolves recover across the entire country is not only misguided, it ignores years of policy to the contrary,” said Heusinkveld. “It’s clear to everyone involved that wolves have not only recovered, but are growing. But the real story here is that HSUS and their allies can’t stand the thought of a wolf hunting season. Instead, they are bound and determined to waste hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars in legal costs to prevent proper management of wolves.”

Endangered Species Act: Reviewing the Nexus of Science and Policy

Purpose

On October 13, 2011, the Subcommittee on Investigations and Oversight will hold a hearing on the nexus of science and policy related to the Endangered Species Act (ESA) 1. The purpose of the hearing is to highlight the combination of science and policy decisions that are made under the ESA. Numerous judicial disputes over
ESA-related actions highlight the challenges in weighing best available science against other policy considerations, often under short deadlines. Congress has frequently considered changes to the ESA as a whole, and has also enacted species-specific ESA legislation, most recently with 2011 legislation concerning the grey
wolf. 2

Although the ESA is designed to protect species, its application is most visible when federally imposed plans to protect and recover a species restrict the actions of private citizens and other entities. For example, landowners may not be able to use their property in a manner they had planned and farmers may not be able to use as much of a river’s water as they need. Since takings claims are rarely successful, the science used to make ESA decisions is critical. <<<Read and Download Entire Report>>>

RMEF Grant Assists Idaho Wolf Management

*Editor’s Note* – The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is entitled to give their money in any way, shape or fashion. It is quite unfortunate the the RMEF and the State of Idaho are being extorted for funds and manpower in order to “manage” GI wolves that were forced onto Idaho landscapes with the collaboration of illegal acts by members of the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, by circumventing the Legislature.

Now, the RMEF states they have given $350,000.00 in extortion payoffs for the “management” of a nasty animal that only brings death and destruction to the landscapes they inhabit. Because Idaho and surrounding states had NO options, after the fact, but to pay the extortion payments, the states now wrongly believe that at the end of the ESA 5-year period of wolf management assessment, things will actually change. How wrong they are. Nothing will change and so long as Idaho, and other states, enabled by donations from groups like the RMEF, continue to play into the hands of the Feds and their-one-of-a-kind environmentalists, protecting GI Wolves, elk will be destroyed down to scarce levels; all for protection of a nasty, disease-infested wild dog.

Insanity!

Press Release from the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation:

MISSOULA, Mont.—The Idaho Department of Fish and Game (IDFG) accepted a $50,000 grant from the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation to help firm up the state’s ability to maintain management of its wolf population.

“This is the fifth and final year of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s five-year monitoring period to evaluate the status of Idaho’s wolf population,” said David Allen, RMEF president and CEO. “The RMEF grant is designed to ensure wolves remain delisted so Idaho can continue to monitor the population and implement effective state-based management practices.”

The grant funding will be used to target two primary activities. The first is to hire a wolf tracking expert to assist in locating non-documented wolf packs while also assisting in collaring those packs in conjunction with a helicopter capture operation. The second activity is to document mid-winter pack composition through aerial tracking and remote camera work.

Idaho wildlife managers documented a minimum of 770 wolves in 2014 which is more than 400 percent above minimum recovery levels. The total includes 104 packs with an additional 23 border packs counted by Montana, Wyoming and Washington that established territories overlapping the Idaho state boundary. IDFG suspects there are even more packs but did not include them in the 2014 count due to lack of documentation.

“As per requirements under the Endangered Species Act, Idaho will continue to manage its wolf population under federal oversight until May 2016. We also know that wolves and other predators have a significant impact on elk in some parts of Idaho. Funding for this project allows the state to better address predator populations by maintaining state control of wolf management,” added Allen.

In the last three-plus years, RMEF awarded approximately $350,000 in grants specifically for wolf management, including $50,000 for Montana earlier this month.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Announces Finding on Gray Wolf Petition

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has determined that a petition to reclassify all gray wolves in the conterminous United States, except for the Mexican wolf in the Southwest, as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) does not present substantial information indicating that reclassification may be warranted. As a result, the Service will take no further action on the petition, which was submitted by The Humane Society of the United States and 22 other petitioners in January.

The Service’s review concluded that the petition did not provide information to indicate that the population petitioned for listing, which does not correspond to any currently listed gray wolf population, may qualify as a listable entity under the ESA.

The Service also found that the petition failed to provide substantial information indicating these wolves may meet the definition of a threatened species, specifically are likely to be in danger of extinction within the foreseeable future throughout all or a significant portion of their range.

This finding will appear in a 90-day batched notice with 30 other petition findings,

http://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=FWS-HQ-ES-2015-0072

The notice will publish in the Federal Register on July 1, 2015, and also will be available at www.fws.gov/policy/frsystem/default.cfm by clicking on the 2015 Notices link under Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants. Information can be submitted on species for which a status review is being initiated, using the specified docket number, beginning upon publication in the Federal Register, for 60 days until August 31, 2015.

Preventing Fascist Rule

FascismThere exists at least two intellectual concepts about the United States Constitution. One is that the charter was crafted for the Rulers, the Posterity, in order to protect themselves and their Interests for the future. The more popular approach, as it was taught us, has always been, right or wrong, that the Constitution was written for the people (small “p”), a government of the people and by the people.

Regardless of which way one opts to regard this document, history tells us that for more than two centuries, man has been taught that the Constitution, including the Bill of Rights, was their guarantee against tyrannical rule, assurance for small government and in support of a man’s right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Since the beginning, powers have been systematically dismantling those teachings and bringing about a form of fascist rule, the end result showing deliberate signs of totalitarian socialism.

We live in and attempt to operate our day to day within a rigged system. Power brokers are operating at frantic speed to steal from you and me our rights, or as the case may be, our perceived rights – what we have been taught from birth.

What should be obvious to most, is how issues discussed and presented for discussion, have changed. This is not happenstance, but deliberate manipulation of the citizenry to achieve necessary (to the Global Power Structure) rule, and thus control, mostly by regulation.

It begins with “Change Agents,” those trained by totalitarian socialists, who devise new ways in which long-standing culture, heritage and rights, even self-evident, God-given rights, are viewed and discussed. Void of any honest scientific research, and/or Biblical Truth, the new paradigms are often referred to as “post-normal” or “post scientific.” The talking points driving this form of fascist rule are based upon the belief that you and I are incapable of making the best decisions for ourselves, and that of what is known as “precautionary principle” – the act of regulation based on the belief that some act might cause public harm. This tactic has worked well over the years. One such instance is by invoking the Commerce Clause. Witness the destruction of the intent of the Endangered Species Act by implementation of the Commerce Clause. This act, as that of precautionary principle, paves the way for illegal “takings” by regulation. The Environmental Protection Agency practices the same fascist rule.

A great example of illegal takings by regulation is the gray wolf, where landowners and livestock growers, among others, are hamstrung by regulation, driven by both a hijacked Endangered Species Act and the precautionary principle, which is propped up through fake, or post-normal, science – outcome based within a rigged system. The effort results in loss of private property rights and illegal takings by the state and federal governments. Note here that all of this would be most difficult to achieve if not for the “useful idiots” who, blindly, seek their own slavery and ultimate destruction.

A late example is now being played out in the form of a Water Compact in Montana between the parties of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes (CSKT), the State of Montana and the U.S. Federal Government. If the U.S. Congress passes this compact, it effectively places the power and control of water in the lap of the federal government. Not only does this action cause an ever increasing government overreach of power, but also results in loss of property rights along with illegal takings, among other events.

The Fifth Amendment states that: “…private property [shall not] be taken for public use, without just compensation.” Because we operate within a rigged system, this compensation clause has little definitive meaning. We think President Ronald Reagan helped us out with Executive Order 12630 by better defining and placing guidelines on decisions concerning private property takings. Reagan stated that: “Responsible fiscal management and fundamental principles of good government require that government decision-makers evaluate carefully the effect of their administrative, regulatory, and legislative actions on constitutionally protected property rights.” Upon further examination of EO 12630, we discover so much legalese and gray areas, how can a citizen rely upon the compensation clause of the Fifth Amendment as some means of protecting their private property? Power brokers, i.e. politicians and government agencies, controlled by higher powers, use this method to gain control over people and their property. This is their well-designed goal.

In an article published by the Institute for Trade, Standards and Sustainable Development, of which attorney Lawrence Kogan is heavily involved, says that American citizens’, “…exclusive tangible and intangible private property, and by extension, their guaranteed constitutional rights, are slowly being eroded, controlled, diminished in value, restricted in use and converted into public property.”

We can debate the actual ownership of property, but as taxpayers we should be entitled to certain rights, one of which is a reasonable guarantee that any government cannot simply run roughshod over a property tax payer for something that government deems in the best interest of all. The educating of Americans has told us that government cannot “take” our property without just compensation and yet only the courts can decide when it is proper to do that. What kind of right is that?

Whether we are discussing the forcing of large predator wolves into human-occupied landscapes, including gray wolves of the Northern Rockies, red wolves of the Southeast, Mexican wolves of the southwest, Delta smelts, Canada lynx, desert turtles, climate change, sustainable development and more, the only real hope citizens have is to loudly push back against this kind of tyrannical, fascist rule.

While Americans sit idly by, Policy rules the day. The Constitution is but a moment in history. Executive action, combined with Court-recognized implementation of Policy, has led us into slavery. If by only the threat to a politician or a group of such crooked lawmakers, the loss of your vote for their future gravy train and golden parachute, appears the only presage to a cushy future, the active opposition to continued fascist rule must be undertaken.

For our future, we cannot allow government to control every aspect of our lives.

USFWS Lies, Cheats and Steals to Get Frankenwolf

*Editor’s Note* – Below is part 7 of a 7 part email series about the corruption and bastardized fake science concocted in order to create a mixed-breed wild mutt, call it a red wolf and manipulate the data in order to introduce their Frankenwolf into the forest. I find it all extremely perverted and disgusting.

Please read Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV, Part V, and Part VI here.

How and Why USFWS Falsely Manipulated the Red Wolf’s Historic Range

Director Ashe,

On March 24th I presented you with this 1972 USFWS commissioned Red Wolf Range map:

RangeMapOriginal

Survey

Special Scientific Report–Wildlife No. 162
Washington, D. C. 1972

Introduction

Distribution

http://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=mdp.39015077581356;view=1up;seq=1

I then made the following Freedom Of Information Act request:

“Please provide specific and detailed evidence that the “red wolf” that was a “human construct” and was “selectively bred” in a zoo in Tacoma, Washington using hybridized coywolves from the State of Texas was ever present in the North Carolina counties of Dare, Hyde, Tyrrell, Washington, and Beaufort as explicitly stated and added in 9(i) of the 50 CFR Part 17 1995 Rules revisions for the red wolf program in NC.”

Your office promptly sent to me hundreds of pages of USFWS statements, Defenders of Wildlife statements, Ron Nowak statements, Ron Nowak dissertations, Ron Nowak maps, magazine articles, etc. It is humorous but problematic that I never received the only USFWS commissioned study and resulting range map as shown above. It is disturbing that private landowners were able to easily find this map, but your staff and your WMI consultants could not.

I spent a great deal of time reviewing each and every page that was sent to me, looking for any fossil evidence or any direct evidence that a red wolf ever existed in the State of North Carolina.

I have been somewhat perplexed as to how to prove a negative.

I can unequivocally state that there was not one shred of direct, indirect, specific or any physical evidence that a red wolf of any type ever existed in the State of North Carolina, much less the “red wolf” that USFWS invented. If you don’t believe me, read it all yourself. Have your attorneys read it. USFWS could not provide to me any evidence that a red wolf ever existed in the State of North Carolina.

Suffice it to say, your biologists just repeatedly made false statements and manipulated maps and words enough that a trusting general public believed them. The situation reminds a lot me of how your recovery program, to be managed on 250,000 acres of federal refuge land, quickly morphed into a 1.7 million acre government land grab for your invented wolf simply because your biologists needed the land.

It appears to me that USFWS dumped their own commissioned red wolf range map in favor of a Ron Nowak invented map, which shows fossil evidence that matches exactly the 1972 USFWS commissioned home range map with one major exception. With the stroke of a pen, Nowak conveniently drew a fictitious line on the map to include the State of North Carolina. This certainly suited the needs of USFWS just fine.

I believe I have read every wolf “novel” USFWS Ron Nowak ever wrote. Some of the few times North Carolina was specifically mentioned by Nowak was in his article The Mysterious Wolf of the South:

CivilWarWolves

And again here in his article The Validity of the Red Wolf, where he confirms the construction of his invented wolf with his now invented range map:

Breeding

Let’s now look at Nowak’s map and the manipulation of the drawing in spite of no evidence in NC, which certainly fit the needs of USFWS:
NewDistributionMap

Validity of the Red Wolf: Response to Roy et al.
R. M. Nowak; N. E. Federoff
Conservation Biology, Vol. 12, No. 3. (Jun., 1998), pp. 722-725.

Now, take the time to compare the above Nowak map to the USFWS commissioned red wolf historic range map:

Pretty remarkable isn’t it? USFWS is certainly not one to let the truth and facts stand in their way. The manipulation of data happened and the truth was ignored.

Let’s now fast forward to 1998.

NowakMap

Even in 1998, Nowak is still at a loss for any evidence of a red wolf in the State of North Carolina, yet USFWS has so much money tied up in this farce now that they proceed on in spite of the facts. Just as they continue to do today.

This should not surprise you as USFWS at this time was also ignoring the then available DNA evidence which proved this wolf was not even a unique species. Furthermore by 2011, Dr. Roland Kays in the “most detailed genomic study of any wild vertebrate species” declared the transplanted “red wolf in North Carolina was only 24% wolf and 76% coyote”. USFWS chose to ignore this fact also.

This concludes how the range map was invented.

I know this is getting long but bear with me, the story only gets better.

Why the invented/constructed wolf needed an invented/constructed range map:

Now why did USFWS dump their very own commissioned map by their very own red wolf recovery team and adopt a map based on theories presented by Ron Nowak in his PHD dissertation for the University of Kansas?

In the mid to late 1970’s, with the Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma, Washington full of newly constructed wolves, USFWS was scrambling hard to find a suitable place to turn their new toys loose.

The Land Between the Lakes in Kentucky and Tennessee was selected and targeted for a release site, as this fit the critical historic range requirement for a 10 (j) nonessential experimental species. However in 1984 this project was abandoned due to lack of public and state support. Read between the lines here, these guys were not duped by false USFWS claims about this so called wolf and what it would mean to their State.

This was no problem for an agency full of over zealous biologists. It was at this time that USFWS acquired the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge in eastern North Carolina.

On the surface things looked good for the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge location, but there was one major problem. The Endangered Species Act 10(J) rule specifically states that a nonessential experimental population of wolves may only be released within their historical range.

This was certainly not an obstacle for such a creative group of USFWS biologists who had invented a new species. They would just deliberately scuttle and hide from the world their own USFWS funded and commissioned range map based on fossil evidence.

USFWS only needed to invent a new map that would fit their needs. USFWS then conveniently changed their very own range map based upon fossil remains in favor of convoluted statements, hypotheses and surmises from a dissertation done by a student from the University of Kansas in order to make the newly acquired Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge fit their legal requirements of the 10(j) rule under the ESA.

And who was the student whose dissertation was used in lieu of a USFWS commissioned study and map? You guessed it, Ron Nowak of “if the red wolf did not exist we would need to invent it”. Pretty fitting isn’t it?

Mr. Nowak later resigned from USFWS in 1997 saying:

“My primary reason for seeking this opportunity to retire is that this agency is no longer adequately supporting the function for which I was hired, the classification and protection of wildlife pursuant to the Endangered Species Act of 1973, and indeed, often is working against this function”

So let’s be clear about things at this point.

USFWS constructs a so called red wolf in a Zoo in Washington State by breeding hybrid coywolfs from Texas.

Since the animal never existed, USFWS had to invent the species by ignoring modern DNA analysis funded by USFWS.

When Kentucky and Tennessee said absolutely “NO” to the idea of releasing this new “wolf” in their Land between the Lakes refuge, USFWS conveniently changed their very own commissioned range map based upon fossil remains in order to meet the ESA 10(j) rules.

USFWS then proceeded to release over 100 of the invented red wolves with no ESA Section 7 authorization of which 64 were illegally released on private land.

USFWS has thus far made no attempt to remove these illegally released wolves as requested by the NCWRC in the same manner as they have ignored the private landowner’s removal requests for almost 30 years.

And now Part 7 of this series, confirms USFWS has willfully and intentionally released 132 non-native invasive canines in the State of North Carolina in direct violation of The Endangered Species Act 10(J) rule, which specifically states that a nonessential experimental population of wolves may only be released within their historical range.

Note that these wolves bred from hybrid coywolves trapped over 1,400 miles away in the State of Texas and were manufactured in the State of Washington, over 3,000 miles away from North Carolina.

There is a very good reason for this critical historic range provision in the ESA. 30 years and over $30,000,000 later a defunct program with only 3 more breeding pairs of wolves than the project started with but with countless hybrids produced, is all the proof that anyone needs that it simply does not pay to break the rules and ignore the facts.

This remains true even today with a looming decision regarding the fate of this USFWS program built upon lies, deceit, arrogance, manipulation of data and unlawful activities.

As Director of USFWS,

– after you comply with, our NCWRC request for removal of the 64 wolves and their offspring that were illegally released on private land,

– and then you retrieve the 100 or so wolves and their offspring that USFWS released with no Section 7 authority,

– and then comply with the recent request for removal of wolves from over 514 landowners,

will you then please pick up any remaining wolves in our State and their resulting offspring, as they are a non-native invasive species to our State and were illegally released in violation of the ESA historic range provision by your biologists.

I hope you have a great day.

Sincerely,

Jett Ferebee

The Invention of “Frankenwolf” in North Carolina

*Editor’s Note* – While readers await Part VII, of the 7-part email series about the corruption and incompetence of introducing so-called red wolves into North Carolina, consider the evidence presented as to how the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service invented a wild dog species to protect under the Endangered Species Act at an overwhelming cost to the American Public. Job security I would guess. After all, isn’t this simply a reflection of all things GOVERNMENT?

Director Ashe,

I know these comments from a rather heated meeting of USFWS biologists in1989 are rather technical, so I have put in bold letters the key and shocking revelations regarding the cover up of the red wolf invention. Keep this quote from USFWS Zoologist/Biologist Ron Nowak in mind as you read.

InventingRedWolf

?
The USFWS’s $30,000,000.00 “Invention”

“In 1979, US Fish and Wildlife Service biologist Ronald Nowak carefully compared the skulls of grey wolves, and coyotes and noticed that the size and shape of the red wolf skull fell midway between that of the coyote and the grey wolf. Nowak’s interpretation of the fossil record further suggested to him that intermediate skulls like that of the red wolf skull first appeared in North America more than a million years ago, well before the first wolves or coyotes.” “Nowak concluded that the red wolf was not only a unique species but also the ancient ancestor of both the grey wolf and the coyote.”

“Nowak’s compelling idea one that persisted almost unchallenged for 10 years, throughout the early years of the Red Wolf Recovery Program.”

“But David Mech had a different theory about red wolves.” “In a 1970 book , Mech had proposed that the red wolf was neither species nor subspecies but a hybrid produced by interbreeding between the grey wolf and the coyote.”

“Into this heated conflict stepped David Mech, one of the world leading wolf experts. In 1989, at an Atlanta meeting of experts on wolf biology, Mech challenged his fellow researches to tell him how they could justify spending so much money rescuing the red wolf when it might not even be a species.”

“In 1989, two University of California biologist, Robert Wayne (of UCLA) and Susan Jenks (of UC Berkley), approached the US Fish and Wildlife Service and offered to settle the matter once and for all.” “Like Nowak, Wayne was an expert on the morphology and taxonomy of wolves and other canids.”

“The government agreed to fund the study, and the two biologist began examining DNA from red wolves, grey wolves and coyotes.”

“The two biologist tentatively and somewhat reluctantly concluded that the red wolf was most likely a hybrid of the grey wolf and the coyote.”

“Nowak and the other biologist at the US Fish and Wildlife Service could not believe what they were being told.” “Maybe, argued the government biologist, Wayne and Jenks had simply missed the DNA sequences that distinguished the red wolf.” Maybe they had not looked at enough DNA.”

“To put to rest any linger doubts, Wayne and other colleagues turned to special receptive regions of the DNA in the nucleus, called micro satellites.” “The results were the same, neither the samples of blood from living red wolves nor the samples from the skins of pre-1930s red wolves showed any unique sequences.” “By 1994, Wayne had found no evidence that the red wolf had ever been reproductively isolated from either grey wolves or coyotes.”

“The red wolf had to be a hybrid of the grey wolf and the coyote.”

“Wayne’s genetic data proved to be an embarrassment to the US Fish and Wildlife Service, which had poured millions of dollars into the reintroduction program in the belief that the red wolf was a unique and endangered species.” “Yet the agency had acted in good faith.” “Until Wayne and his colleagues finished their research, the US Fish and Wildlife Service had no way of knowing that the red wolf was not a species.”

“Now the government agency was faced with a terrible dilemma.” “Wayne’s resulting threaten to discredit the wolf recovery program, strip the red wolf of its endangered status, and further undermine the increasingly battered public image of the federal Endangered Species Act.”

*** “To protect the red wolf, the US Fish and Wildlife Service began pressuring Wayne to avoid the word “Hybrid” in his research papers and to substitute the term “intergrade species” and other similar phrases.”

“In 1995, the US Department of the Interior issued a legal opinion that said that hybrids would be protected under the Endangered Species Act if Morphological evidence showed that the hybrids ere similar to the endangered “Pure” form.”

“In essence, if they looked like red wolves, they would be protected.”

“But the genetic data did not support that idea that a “Pure” form of the red wolf had ever existed, certainly not in the last 100 years.”

“In issuing this opinion, the agency excluded all the genetic evidence regarding the red wolf’s species status.” The only question was whether the red wolf looked different from the coyote and the grey wolf.”

“It did, and, therefore, until such time as the government acknowledges the genetic data, the red wolf will be considered a species.”

Director Ashe, the red wolf did not exist so it was “invented” by USFWS through omission of your own Government funded current science.

Ponder this over the weekend, as it is heavily tied into Part 7 due out on Monday.

Sincerely,

Jett Ferebee
