RE: Docket FWS-R6-ES-2008-0008 / RIN 1018-AW37
Gray Wolves Belong on the Federal Endangered Species List

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s proposal to remove Northern Rocky Mountain gray wolves from the list of endangered and threatened wildlife is a last-ditch gift to logging, drilling and hunting industries.

This reckless bid permits Northern Rockies states to slaughter almost 1,000 gray wolves during the initial year alone. Please register my firm opposition to the Bush Administration’s irresponsible management of endangered wildlife. I implore the Interior Department to uphold rigorous federal protection for wolves.

The fate of gray wolves should not be handed over to the states. Wolf pups continue to succumb to disease and park biologists estimate a diminishing number of Yellowstone wolves this year. State-sanctioned killing would once again drive gray wolves to the verge of extinction.

Projected kill quotas reflect a lack of thought about repercussions. Idaho okays the slaughter of over 400 wolves in the first year. Wyoming’s recent agenda authorizes killing over half the wolves beyond national park borders.

Moreover, biologists claim at least 2,000-3,000 wolves are essential to recovery. Shortsighted federal recovery goals do not concur with scientific findings. In fact, last July a federal judge determined that the present plan is flawed. The rule change would make a bad plan even worse. In Wyoming, for example, the revised strategy calls for 88% of the state to be designated a predator zone.

Instead of chipping away at gray wolf restoration, the Fish and Wildlife Service must advocate an inclusive management plan for the lower-48 states. Please do not strip current safeguards for wolves, unless a revitalized national plan — in which all Northern Rockies states support survival over slaughter — is ready to put into practice.

Thank you,
