Court rules Wyoming wolves should be stripped of federal protections
Wolves in Wyoming should be stripped of Endangered Species Act protections and management given to the state rather than the U.S. government, a federal appeals court ruled on Friday, a decision that opens the door for hunting of the animals.
U.S. wildlife managers in 2012 determined that wolves in Wyoming had rebounded from the threat of extinction and that the state plan to oversee the creatures was adequate to ensure their survival.
But conservation groups sued, contending the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service had acted in an arbitrary and unlawful fashion in finding Wyoming's plan acceptable. They argued the state would fail to maintain the animals at certain population levels and would subject a portion of them to being shot on sight....
Wolves freely roam thru evangelicalism- "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves." Mt7:15 But if we scoff at their danger- innocents will die- "Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves." 10;16 --/ Those with wisdom remember roving packs "For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock." Acts20:29 -- But a culture in decline goes back to the beasts Unless vigilant control pushes back the wild-
"Her princes within her are roaring lions; her judges are evening wolves; they gnaw not the bones till the morrow." Zeph3:3 "Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain." Ez22:27
Sympathy for innate killers lets them multiply to the point that wisdom pushes back and culls the evil wolves for the sake of public safety.
The decision was quickly hailed by Wyoming's Republican governor, Matt Mead, who said in a written statement, "This is the right decision for wolves and for Wyoming." Mead said the state will once again assume management of wolves -but wolves need to be culled NOW! Protect lambs
