Wolf delisting faces new court challenge

Greater Yellowstone Coalition reverses previous position on wolf delisting and files its own suit separate from those filed by the Wolf Coalition and the State of Wyoming.

The suit was filed in Montana. This is the third suit filed over delisting. The first was filed by the Wolf Coalition, which is made up of several environmental groups. The second by the State of Wyoming and livestock groups.

    Will Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming pull their heads out and figure out that their Little Red Riding Hood plans are not going to be accepted and lawsuits will be continued? If anything, these lawsuits will be what keeps the wolf population growing.

    ID’s and MT’s plans have been accepted. In the first delisting ruling, which returned wolves to federal protection, the judge had no issues with those states’ management plans, so there would seem to be very little opportunity to alter/overturn them.

    I know that Idaho and Montana’s plans got accepted, but didn’t they still allow for a large portion of the population to be killed off? It seemed like a lot of the rhetoric was still there.

    Looks like as good of place as any for this:

    I don’t get why wolves are back on the list in the Great Lakes region. It seems like all the suitable habitat is filled according to what I have read.
