Montana State Sen. Mike Phillips has been a part of efforts across the country to restore populations of wolves. 

He was recently involved in their reintroduction to Yellowstone National Park, and is now launching the Rocky Mountain Wolf Project, with a goal of bringing the apex predators back to Colorado.

WASHINGTON — The National Park Service today put forward a draft plan to release 20 to 30 new wolves on Michigan's Isle Royale over a three-year period as a way to bolster a population on the remote Lake Superior island that has dwindled to just two and is in danger of becoming extinct.

The nine members of Congress who penned a letter to Interior Secretary Sally Jewell say they blame the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for the state of the endangered red wolf population that calls eastern North Carolina home, citing specific examples of how bad decisions have pushed the species to the brink of extinction.

Representatives Raul Grijalva, Debbie Dingell, Jim Langevin, Mark Pocan, Donald Beyer Jr., Alan Lowenthal, Peter DeFazio, Jared Polis, and Betty McCollum—all Democrats, none from North Carolina—say the government has failed the "iconic animal" by abandoning its responsibility to protect the wolves under the Endangered Species Act.

Un petit "chiot gratuit", ça ne se refuse pas. Mais l’Américain qui a mis la main sur cet animal de compagnie dans l'Arizona n’était pas au bout de ses surprises, comme le raconte mercredi la version britannique du magazine "Elle".

Le comportement du jeune chiot, baptisé Neo, est tout de suite étrange. Très nerveux, il a constamment besoin de compagnie et fait ses besoins partout dans la voiture du propriétaire. En outre, il prend la fuite dès qu’il en a l’occasion : il n'hésite pas à creuser sous la clôture ou à passer par-dessus pour courir jouer avec les bergers allemands des voisins.

This is not a biological issue. It is a political issue…we want wolves gone.” ~ Statements made at the Sen. Tom Tiffany/Rep. Adam Jarchow Sept. 15 Great Lakes Wolf Summit

 

The actions and legislation of this U.S. Congress make me realize that hunters think that wilderness is a federally financed shooting range with roads leading across it from all directions, dogs fighting bears and wolves, forests emptied using steel-jaw traps, and living animals lined up for target practice.
