Groups sue to end Midwest wolf hunt

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Humane Society of the United States and other groups are suing to restore federal protections for wolves in the western Great Lakes region.

The groups filed the lawsuit today in federal court in the District of Columbia against the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

They say taking wolves in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan off the endangered list last year threatens the recovery of wolves throughout most of their historic range.

Hunters and trappers in Minnesota and Wisconsin killed over 500 wolves during those states’ recently concluded seasons. The Michigan Legislature voted in December to authorize the resumption of wolf hunting.

The Humane Society of the United States provided a copy of the lawsuit to The Associated Press before its public announcement.

Here's what happened in Idaho with Wolves. Their numbers need to be controlled by allowing hunting.

The Canadian Gray Wolf runs in packs of up to twenty wolves. For every one animal they kill to eat, these Canadian wolves kill about three more just for the fun of it. Known as "sport-reflex killing" or "lustful killing." The Canadian Gray Wolf is a killing machine.
These are federal wolves, as it was the federal government who introduced them into Idaho over our objections. They told the state of Idaho that the wolves would be considered recovered when they had a total of 100 wolves in Idaho .
Now they have between 800 and 2,000 wolves and the situation is out of control.
"Idaho 's wolf emergency is a state issue. And in this situation, the state of Idaho has both a duty and the authority to protect its people and their property. House Bill 343 lays out the facts, the argument and the authority to do so." - Idaho Rep Phil Hart.

Can you imagine gun control out there? This is not a good place to let the cat out.
Make sure you are packing protection when you go for a walk in the mountains.

Sterilization is a much better way .

Freeatlast...do you expect the wolves to line up to be neutered?

Hunting is controlled by season and limit constraints! How do we monitor the wolves to ensure they harvest no more than we allow?

By limiting their numbers...thats how!
