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.

Inventing the “Mixed Breed Coywolf” – Part 5 of 7 Part Series

*Editor’s Note* – Below is Part 5 of a 7-part email series distributed by Jet Ferebee of North Carolina. Please view Part I, Part II, Part III, and Part IV, by following these links.

It is extremely important for readers to understand a very significant issue that is being discussed here – particularly in this the 5th part. The issue is cross-breeding of canine species or as some prefer to call it, hybridization. Ferebee is accusing the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service of deliberately concocting a hybrid wild dog. There is strong and ample evidence to support his claim. With a basic understanding of dog breeding and cross breeding, if it is true that government officials created a “Frankenstein” wolf and named it a “red wolf,” not only is the result of their scientific experiment a biological disaster on several levels but, in my opinion, it is a criminal act and those responsible should be held accountable. At the very least those involved are not qualified to be messing around with this scientific, and I use that term very loosely, endeavor.

It is astounding to me that while on the surface it appears that there is a group of people that seems bent on the population of wolves of all mixes and breeds, forced into every American’s back yard, promoted by the claims of protecting and recovering the _______ wolf – you fill in the blank. Yet, nearly every action they are undertaking is an act to destroy the wolf. Are they that stupid or simply completely blinded?

In a recent email exchange with Dr. Valerius Geist, Professor Emeritus University of Calagary, in reference to the 7-part email exchange that I have been posting, he expresses his dismay and concern for what is taking place and tells me that it is imperative that those of us who are most concerned about the actual preservation of “pure” wolves, educate people on what is taking place. Geist says:

…the absolute failure in wildlife conservation as illustrated by the flowing together of the genomes of gray wolves, eastern wolves, coyotes and dogs into the “eastern coyote” – a misnomer, for that’s no coyote! it’s worthless mongrel, worthless for conservation and of little worth to science. Worse still are the red-wolf, Mexican wolf and release of wolves in the west antics as they set up conditions by which the genetics of both wolves and of coyotes will be destroyed. USFWS policies now insure that we will loose both the “big wolf” and the “little wolf” – the latter a true American with long evolutionary history on this continent. A travesty as far as i am concerned.

Geist ends his email to me by saying:

Isn’t it ironical that we are fighting to keep wolves as wolves, while our opposition is bound and determined to destroy wolves and coyotes as evolved, genetic entities?

*Note* – By “we” in Geist’s statement, he refers to those of us who understand real science and wish to educate others of the need to control and properly management canine predators, keeping each species geographically separate in order to protect the purity of the genetic construct of each animal. Why is that such a difficult concept to understand? If the concern was for actual protection of a wolf species, surely the goal should be to ensure that any cross breeding in the wild be minimized. Forcing hundreds of thousands of “wolves” into human-settle landscapes is a recipe for disaster.

Ferebee’s Email – Part V

Director Ashe,

Today I would like to focus on the non-native invasive canine that USFWS needed to invent, hired a Zoo in Washington State to construct, dumped outside of it’s historical range, and now 30 years and over $30,000,000 later modern DNA has proven is just a mix breed coywolf.

Was the below pictured canine “invented” as USFWS Zoologist/Biologist and “wolf specialist” Ron Nowak suggested it should be? Remember, Nowak conveniently altered the historic range map so as to make it possible to release these non-native canines in NC because it was a coyote free area. More on this later…

NowakStatement

Or, was it humanly constructed and selectively bred from hybrid coywolves in a Zoo in Washington State as former USFWS Red Wolf Coordinator Mike Phillips admitted to your WMI consultants, that you recently had to hire to figure out what in the world your biologists were doing in our great State?
MikePhillips

Or finally, is this canine just a hybrid coywolf that current DNA analysis now proves is 76% coyote / 24% wolf and thus not protected by the ESA? The below recent 2011 study involving 15 national and international scientists was the “most detailed genomic study of any wild vertebrate species” using “unprecedented genetic technology”. No wonder your invented and humanly constructed “wolf” so readily hybridizes with coyotes.
As Director of USFWS, do you believe the ESA was hijacked by overzealous USFWS biologists to invent, construct, transplant and promote a hybrid coywolf in our State?

As Director of USFWS, can you tell me exactly what percent coyote/wolf this animal on my farm should be considered? The percents, and resulting penalties if it is killed, matter greatly. Unless of course it happens to die from heartworms.

Mongrel

Director Ashe, I once again ask that you prudently take this opportunity in time to admit that this ill conceived and unlawfully executed Federal experiment has failed and can not succeed in NC . Cut your losses and end the charade now please. USFWS has done enough damage to eastern NC and its true native wildlife.

Sincerely,

Jett Ferebee

Hoping the Problem Magically Cures Itself? Part IV or VII

*Editor’s Note* – Below is Part IV of seven parts of email exchanges by Jet Ferebee to USFWS Director Ashe exposing corruption and poor red wolf and wildlife management in parts of North Carolina. You can find Part I, Part II, Part III by following the associated links.

Director Ashe,

Since I have been investigating the USFWS red wolf program, your biologists have ceased publicly updating their reports and I do not really blame them. One of the last reports showed that eight out of seventeen or 47% of the known red wolf packs in NC contained coyotes. I have previously proven USFWS has no idea where or what is happening with the vast majority of their red wolves. One can only assume the large unknown and unmanaged wolf population has a much higher occurrence of coyotes and consequential hybridization.

In 1999, the Red Wolf Recovery Implementation Team documented the hybridization rate of wild wolves in our state was 900% more than allowed for the program goal of 80% to 90% genetic integrity to be maintained and the red wolf breed would be unrecognizable within 2 to 3 generations.

I bring this fact up because you are obviously having a difficult time determining exactly what species this pictured canine is and I felt you should understand why.

Mongrel

In January the NCWRC unanimously passed the below resolution demanding that USFWS immediately remove all illegally released wolves and their offspring, which would include the above pictured canine.
NCResolveRemoveWolves

Almost five months after this request from our State agency charged with protecting our native wildlife, USFWS has done absolutely nothing. If I had ever done something as atrocious as what USFWS has done in eastern NC, I would have been doing everything possible to immediately rectify the situation. Not so with USFWS.

As Director of USFWS, do you believe USFWS’s handling of the red wolf scandal in our State bodes well for future USFWS programs where cooperation with State wildlife agencies and private landowners is so critical?

When exactly will you begin removing your illegal wolves and their offspring from NC?

Sincerely,

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.

MirandaLetter

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?

Mongrel

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

What Kind of Wild Cross-Bred Dog Am I?

*Editor’s Note* – This is an email sent to me from Jet Ferebee, from North Carolina. He is fighting against the wrongs of wolf introduction in that state. It was labeled as being Part I of a seven-part series. Anxious!

Director Ashe,

This email will be part one of a seven part series in which you and I discern exactly what this canine is and why it is on my farm. I will start out easy.

Mongrel

The above picture of a canine on my farm taken last week, speaks volumes about what the USFWS Red Wolf program has brought to and created in our State.

As Director of USFWS, can you tell me exactly what this canine is? Is it a coyote, a “red wolf”, a coywolf, or a non-native, invasive USFWS created and tax payer funded hybrid red wolf/coyote?

I and many other North Carolinians anxiously await your answer. Please just reply to all ASAP.

Thanks,

Somebody Needs to Buy a Clue: NC Red Wolf Government Corruption

From North Carolina Hunt and Fish:

September 2014 Gunshot Wolf “Facts”
Facts that we know:

1) An endangered Red Wolf was confirmed to be shot in September 2014

2) Federal Judge Terrance Boyle issued a Federal Injunction halting all Coyote Hunting in the 5 County area (Tyrrell)

3) The confirmed and admitted Gunshot take occurred in Tyrrell County while Tyrrell County was under the Federal Coyote Injunction

4) No one reported this gunshot Red Wolf within the required 24 hr period for permitted takes 1) Deperdation 2) Threat of life

5) This “Take” could not have been “Incidental” to an otherwise legal activity (Coyote Take) as there was a Federal Injunction in place at time of this confirmed gunshot occurred!

6) If this take occurred due to the perpetrator mistakenly shooting the Endangered Red Wolf while they were Coyote hunting, that activity (Coyote hunting) violated the Federal Judges Injunction which resulted from the suit brought forward by the Red Wolf Coalition and not for “Profits”. This is highly illegal in its own twist of circumstance.

7) USFWS failed to issue a joint press release and even embrace the generous reward posted by Landowners and Hunters which now stands at $52,050.00!

Questions;

Why has USFWS failed to pursue this most intresting case?

Does the USFWS close all Critically Endangered Species criminal cases that are “Confirmed” to have suffered “Gunshot” if it only later (creatively ??) decides the mortality was not caused by gunshot?

Does anyone else in America smell the “Stinch”???

Director Ashe,

The below video and fact sheet was recently posted on a website where I am documenting the absurd USFWS Red Wolf Restoration Scandal. Pay close attention to the entire video as it may contain a clue you need.

Does the CEO of Defenders of Wildlife have a Desk in Your Office?

*Note* The following information comes to me from North Carolina Hunt and Fish.

Director Ashe and Secretary Jewell,

Does the CEO of Defenders of Wildlife have a desk in your office? She probably does not, at least I hope not. But did you know the Executive Director of the Red Wolf Coalition had a desk in your USWFS Office in Columbia, NC?

Yep, you read that correctly. A desk in the USFWS office while the Red Wolf Coalition was suing the NC Wildlife Resources Commissioners individually for supposedly violating the ESA as our Commissioners fought to protect our State’s wildlife and NC private landowner rights. This obviously explains why USFWS refused to appear in court on behalf of our Commissioners.

As it turns out, we all now know who has actually been violating the ESA … USFWS.

Did you know that your USFWS Red Wolf Coordinator held a position on the Red Wolf Coalition Board of Directors? Neither of you sit on the Defenders of Wildlife Board of Directors do you? Of course not, that would certainly be a professional conflict of interest.

Did you know the Red Wolf Coalition was actively paying trappers for wolves and/or coyotes in NC? The purchase of wildlife in our State is illegal and is thus a violation of the Lacey Act. The purchase of endangered species is, as you know, absolutely illegal also. Here are the Red Wolf Coalition tax returns showing these payments with your USFWS Red Wolf Coordinator shown as a Board member.

Form990PartI

FederalStatementKillingWolves

It is hard to imagine how things can get so corrupted in one little USFWS Field office. Until you realize your USFWS Red Wolf Coordinator decided he could run this multimillion dollar scandal remotely and moved from eastern NC back to his hometown in the western part of our State – near Charlotte, N.C. Yes, that is correct, hence the name “a field office with no adult supervision”.

It is pretty interesting all that I found out one cold February morning in 2014 as I, the private landowner, worked to help save a red wolf that was in danger of dying from hypothermia isn’t it?

Director Ashe, you really should take the time to meet with me. I have so much more to share and will do so one way or the other. I do not mean this maliciously, but I very likely know way more about your “red wolf” program than you do.

Here is a recording of your former “remote” USFWS Red Wolf Coordinator. Listen carefully because he will only be “checking his voice mail on occasion”.

Unilateral and Unlawful Decision by USFWS (criminal?)

*Editor’s Note* Below is information contained in an email that I received concerning how the United States Fish and Wildlife Service has handled the introduction and management of red wolves in North Carolina.

Rules

1986 50 CFR Part 17:
“The Service will make every effort to keep red wolves on the refuge, but if an animal leaves the refuge / bombing range area, the Service intends to capture it and return it to captivity”

1995 50 CFR Part 17:
“Any animal that is determined to be in need of special care or that moves onto lands where the landowner requests their removal will be recaptured”

Wolf Lessons from North Carolina

Written by and Presented by James Beers:

Last Friday, 30 January, I wrote a piece, Kudos to North Carolina and Her Wolves that Never Were, complimenting the recent success of some men in North Carolina regarding how to stand up to the federal government and the Endangered Species Act. This involves “red” wolves, an enviable (to most of us) State Wildlife Agency and both federal and State elected politicians from North Carolina listening to and standing up for the rural residents of North Carolina.

Since writing that article, I have had numerous e-mails and some phone calls asking me how they have accomplished what they have. It is with trying to answer that question that I have spoken to some of those involved and they have shared with me some samples of their methods and approaches. I have attached a series of items below for the use of those involved in this fight from the Great Lakes toYuma to Dorris (CA) and Spokane.

I would caution you to keep in mind that the US Fish and Wildlife Service and all their environmental/animal rights’ allies are watching this closely as well. They are no doubt involved in high level and intense conferences to determine how to keep this from being repeated elsewhere not only with wolves or grizzlies but with every songbird, minnow or “bunnie” they have “Listed” or intend to “List” in the shade of the Endangered Species Act.

Here are a few observations I have made over the past few days as I dug into this victory of Constitutional government and the rights of all citizen’s to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness:

– This success story is really the victory of a few determined North Carolinians that, until recently, would have appeared to be no different than you or me. A farmer/businessman, a boat entrepreneur, and a volunteer Coordinator of the North Carolina Legislature’s Sportsman’s Caucus are three that leap out. The farmer was having “wolf” problems as some of his land lies alongside federal “wolf” habitat. The boat entrepreneur (an important vocation in a State rich in freshwater, brackish water, saltwater, seafood, fish, duck hunting and every other imaginable water recreational pursuit) is an example of a concerned citizen doing what he believes to be the right thing. The Sportsman’s Caucus Coordinator is the sort of all-too-rare political worker that sees what is best for the residents and wildlife of his State – and does it.

– They evidently made a conscious decision to proceed without any lawyers. They knew what their goals were and they seemed to have found that the lawyers either did not understand what they were about or they were not receptive to what these men knew had to be done.

– Among other things they did to gain public support while they were uncovering federal violations and trying to organize political support, was inexpensive, novel and apparently worth every penny. They hired one of those old prop planes you see hauling advertising signs along and over East Coast beaches in the summer to fly back and forth over and throughout a big (in North Carolina) college football game (UNC & ECU I believe) with a sign trailing behind that said something like “Google Red Wolf Restoration Scandal @ …….”

– They recorded federal government answers and non-answers to questions.

– They carefully read the regulations and documented violations by federal employees.

– They publicized (see below) everything they found.

– They got scientific and media help from a wide range of North Carolinians with a similar devotion to what is best for their state plus skills and experience these men needed.

– They lobbied both the newly elected conservative federal and state officials and also those progressive officials that wanted what was best for North Carolina. I was told one that one long-standing state wolf supporter politician who had had a “Research” Center named after him remained unconvinced of these men’s mission. NOTE: Naming a Refuge or Bridge or other public project after either an alive or deceased (as an invitation to others) powerful politician who supports government growth and benefits is an old (at least since The New Deal) and tried ploy of those like bureaucrats that anticipate annual returns to the public money or new law trough.

– As you consider what is useful to you from North Carolina, remember that North Carolina has its’ share of large urban concentrations and a good deal of out-of-state professors and technical workers and researchers that one would expect to be big fans of wolves “out there over the hill from where I live but where I may want to vacation one day”. Yet the politicians and rural residents generated the political support necessary within the political climate of the day to do what they have accomplished. For instance, I was told that about 75% of the current wildlife students at one of the large and respected Universities are either unconcerned about animal management and/or anti-hunting and trapping. Yet these men have accomplished what they have.

– As with many such accomplishments today, getting a coalition of state and federal elected officials on your side to not only stand up to bad laws and federal abuse but to just as importantly remind the state bureaucrats that they work for the residents of the state and that they will be backed up when they look out for and protect them; is most important.

What they have done can be done where you live and it can be, and probably is best, done by men and women just like you. Look over the following information but keep in mind that these men have jobs and not staffs for things like you might expect from all the other “players” in these wolf melodramas. Rethink what you have done and are doing as well as what you might do tomorrow. Share this around, speak with your friends and neighbors, and consider how lucky we are to have a State like North Carolina and men like these in this great Nation – and don’t forget the info below.

That these GI or red “wolves” (actually hybrids) are and always were fully capable of reproducing viable offspring with not only coyotes but with every variety of dogs from deer hounds and Dobermans to pit bulls and basset hounds is something honest biologists recognize as the classic definition of a Species, that is a group of similar animals capable of producing viable offspring. In other words, the bureaucratic manipulation of a federal law clearly intended to save “Species” such that something bureaucrats call a “red” wolf is given the unique identity of, say, a giraffe or a rhinoceros as a Species in order to execute a very severe federal authority capable of superseding State jurisdiction over wildlife in the State; the activities of rural residents in things from animal husbandry and hunting to animal control and the safety of all, especially children and the elderly; rural property owners like dog owners; and ultimately the economic activities of struggling rural communities: all this was and remains a scandalous abuse of government power and environmental oppression. That any citizen could be imprisoned for a year and fined $100,000 for killing or attempting to kill such mongrels placed in his midst by a remote central government is a travesty once thought to be unimaginable in a Constitutional Republic or even a “majority rule Democracy.
>
> To see a State Government and its’ Wildlife Authority (the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission) stand up to this federal bullying is heartening and a hopeful sign for other States, to say the least. The Commission’s Resolutions to order the federal bureaucrats to remove the “wolves” that they have been illegally releasing on private property in North Carolina, plus their Statement recognizing and calling for a Declaration of Extinction due to the Hybridization of the “Red Wolf” Genome (i.e. a full set of chromosomes representing all the inheritable traits of a singular group of organisms) are models to not only other US States hosting these GI wolves from the Great Lakes to the Pacific Coast to the Southwest ; they are a much needed encouragement to Europeans from Germany and Italy to Spain where wolves are spreading death and destruction due to the same sort of abuse of government power by the European Union government as Americans are suffering from Washington politicians and bureaucrats. Increasingly these European wolves are being shown to be “hybrids” with dogs and just as in the US, what dogs are not being killed by wolves are bred by or breed with dog/wolves “in heat” creating the inevitable and increasingly complex hybridizations that will always be the hallmark of wolves living in settled landscapes.
>
> In France alone, just last year, nearly 10,000 domestic animals were killed by wolves. Throughout Europe; sheep flocks, shepherds, and self-sufficient rural families are, like their American rural cousins, enduring untold stress and disappearing much to the distress of their rural communities where they have contributed so much for untold generations and where grazing lands are beginning to revert to brush and fire fuel. European men are being incarcerated for killing what appeared to be rogue dogs that, after lengthy and extensive laboratory by government’ experts, were declared to be wolves. The same propaganda about wolves (“restore stream banks”, “don’t kill stock or game animals”, “belong”, “necessary”) and the same paradigm of a remote and all-powerful central government controlled by wealthy, urban factions is destroying much of rural Europe with GI wolves just as we see in the rural western States today and just like federal bureaucracies have long-intended for North Carolina and an ever-expanding ring of surrounding States.

> So thank you North Carolina. Your intestinal fortitude and your moxie are both a model and a ray of hope to far more than merely those ensnared by the “red” wolf spider web manufactured in Washington.
