*Editor’s Note* – Perhaps the title of this would be accurate to state that the USFWS is doing everything it can to delay and/or reverse course on removing the cougar from the list of Endangered and Threatened Species. This process has been going on for how long now? And now they are going to reopen the comment period. Why?

SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), announce the reopening of the comment period on our June 17, 2015, proposed rule to remove the eastern puma (=cougar) (Puma (=Felis) concolor couguar) from the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife. We are reopening the comment period for 30 days to conduct peer review. Interested parties are also afforded this additional opportunity to comment on the proposed rule; comments previously submitted need not be resubmitted, as they will be fully considered in preparation of the final listing determination.<<<Read More>>>
