  1. John d. says:

    All reports are in, delisting is definitely being rushed before the change of office.

  2. Terry Nissen says:

    This is really bad news!!! What a sad Christmas it will be if the murder of these magnificent and mystical creatures is put in force. They will stand no chance of survival. I am totally upset to even think that this delisting could take place again….for the second time this year.

    Just goes to show ya how much respect there is to go around…

    Wool Growers Association Spokesperson: “You can have wolves or you can have the livestock industry, but you can’t have both.”

    So much for the spirit of compromise; what was the dollar value of the livestock destroyed by wolves in Wyoming in 2007?

‎"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."
