The Mongrel Mutt Was Illegally Dumped onto Private Land – Part 6 or 7

*Editor’s Note* – Continuing with the 7-part email series from Jet Ferebee in North Carolina, the below email to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service director, Dan Ashe, states that although promises were made to only maintain “red wolves” on Federal Land, USFWS biologists willfully and intentionally introduced red wolves on private land and continued to do so after being called out on the issue. It is this kind of irresponsible, illegal and corrupt actions that must be halted, in addition to creating “Frankenstein” mongrel mutts and calling them red wolves.

Please read Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV, and Part V at the corresponding links.

Director Ashe,

From initial ESA Section 7 documents, several Federal Rules, to countless public documents regarding the release of “red wolves” in our State, USFWS biologists willfully and intentionally chose not to disclose the very salient fact that wolves were being released onto private land. In fact USFWS declared just the opposite, the wolves would be released and maintained only on Federal lands. At the very same time USFWS was actively and aggressively releasing wolves onto private land.

It was not until my FOIA request last year that USFWS was forced to admit to the citizens of NC that wolves in fact were being unlawfully released onto private land by USFWS biologists. Documents further revealed the USFWS Red Wolf coordinator unlawfully declined to remove wolves from private property when requests were made and further denied take permits as also required by law. This practice is still occurring today. Yes today!

In just the last few months over 514 private landowners as well as the NCWRC have demanded the wolves to be removed from private land as promised by law. Even as I write this very letter, you and USFWS continue to arrogantly thumb your nose to these lawful requests. I assure you, USFWS is not above the law.

94% of all suspected illegal red wolf deaths (60 of 64) have occurred on private land, where the citizens of our State were promised the wolves would not be.

As Director of USFWS, do you believe the USFWS, their biologists and program managers who willfully and intentionally chose to violate the ESA Federal Rules and ESA Section 7 consultations should be held criminally responsible for their actions which ultimately resulted in the take of over 60 endangered “wolves”?

What is most angering to me is the fact that USFWS biologists willfully violated laws by intentionally releasing wolves onto private land and then refusing to remove the wolves as promised and required by law; only to then pursue criminal actions against the citizens of NC when a wolf was shot on private land.

As Director of USFWS, do you believe the above willful and intentional actions by USFWS constitute entrapment and should USFWS and its personnel be held criminally responsible?

Director Ashe, you may not like the law, but it is the law.

Remove your non-native, invented, mixed breed mutts and remove them now.

USFWS N. Carolina Red Wolf Introduction: This Land is MY Land YOUR Land is MY Land

*Editor’s Note* – Below is Part III of a seven part email series being sent out by Jet Ferebee exposing the illegal actions and continued corruption of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Red Wold introduction. Read Part I and Part II.

Director Ashe,

Last year my FOIA request revealed that USFWS biologists released 64 out of 132 red wolves onto private lands in NC in direct violation of your very own Federal rules and also your commitments made to the citizens of our State. Here is your own Solicitor’s letter stating that USFWS had no legal authorization to release wolves onto private lands.

The below canine looks like the new non-native invasive USFWS created hybrid canine that is now rapidly spreading throughout our State.

Is it possible that this could be one of your illegally released wolves?

Or maybe it is the resulting offspring of a federally protected wolf being illegally released onto private land and mating with a now federally protected coyote on private land where your biologists are not allowed to be.

This is what happens when you promise the citizens of NC to operate your “wolf program” on federal land only, but then intentionally and illegally do otherwise…

For the record, USFWS was very complicit in having coyotes federally protected in eastern NC. How absurd and detrimental is that?

As Director of USFWS, do you think the above federally protected hybrid canine is the consequence of USFWS illegally dumping wolves onto private land throughout eastern NC in light of the fact that coyotes now roam these counties by the thousands?

Dan, the critical success factor for your “wolf program” of “no coyotes” no longer exists in eastern NC.

I have often asked USFWS what a successful wolf program in NC looks like with coyotes now being so pervasive and entrenched in the recovery area.

In case you haven’t figured it out yet, it looks like the non-native invasive USFWS created hybrid coywolf in this picture.

USFWS can not stop the creation of non-native invasive hybrids as the red wolf population is engulfed by coyotes. Texas hybrid swarm history is only repeating itself in NC as a result of your now foolish and now exposed unlawful pursuit.

Sincerely,
Jett Ferebee
