Story.
Wyoming is suing the federal government again, trying to get the courts to tell the USFWS that a sow’s ear is really a silk purpose. Every time time Wyoming does this, Park County’s Attorney Bryan Skoric demands that Park County be given the legal status of “intervenor.” Since this is a legal slam dunk, it is hardly worth a news story.

It seems to be a yearly ritual, giving another opportunity for the jackass to bray.

It seems like conservation groups should get as much media as the Park County attorney. Here is the news release they issued today. Conservation Groups Intervene in Wyoming Wolf Lawsuit. Aim is to prevent unregulated poisoning, trapping, and shooting of gray wolves in Wyoming.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
