It looks like Wyoming may not act in time to use the “window of opportunity” to get its wolf plan approved by USFWS, and so get the wolves delisted in Wyoming.

The legislature keeps coming up with perfectly awful plans that even the new wolf-hating head of the USFWS knows can’t pass muster. With luck the Wyoming legilature will continue down its stubborn parth a couple weeks more.

‎"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."
