Wolf Plans Be Damned

The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission (OFWC) seems to have taken a page from the liar’s book of wolf management deception used by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). The USFWS promised taxpayers that when wolves in the Northern Rocky Mountains Distinct Population Segment reached a total of 300 wolves, the animal would be removed from Federal protection. Years later and many hundreds more wolves than promised, the USFWS BEGAN the process to “delist” the wolf. And then the environmentalists went to work filing lawsuits to pad their bank accounts.

It seems Oregon promised taxpayers that when wolves numbered four breeding pairs for 3 consecutive years, wolves there would be removed from protection. That goal was reached in 2012 when six breeding pairs were confirmed, 2013 when 4 breeding pairs were confirmed and in 2014 when 8 breeding pairs existed.

It is now 2015 and the OFWC is considering whether to delist at all, or do it only in prescribed areas of the state.

And these clowns wonder why so many people are hating on wolves and idiotic wildlife management that protects animals over humans and their property.


Idaho: 22 Breeding Wolf Pairs, 1,000 Wolves

As was well pointed out by a reader on this website, wolf advocates seem upset that Idaho officials are not reliable when it comes to counting wolves but are reliable when it comes to counting elk.

“Idaho Fish and Game biologist Jim Hayden said there are an estimated 1,000 wolves in the state, and probably many more breeding pairs of wolves than counted.

“The 22 is still tentative but it can only go up from there,” he said before giving a presentation to the Idaho Fish and Game Commission in Boise.

Hayden said the number of breeding pairs in the state is not at risk of falling below 15, which would lead to the state having to return wolf management to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to ensure the species’ survival under the Endangered Species Act.”<<<Read More>>>
