Motion to bar Montana Idaho wolf hunts denied

San Antonio Express-News

August 25, 2011

HELENA, Mont. (AP) - A federal appeals court on Thursday denied a request by environmental groups to halt wolf hunts that are scheduled to begin next week in Idaho and Montana.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals denied the request by the Alliance for the Wild Rockies and other groups. The groups were seeking to cancel the hunts while the court considers a challenge to congressional action in April that stripped wolves of federal protections in Montana and Idaho, and in parts of Washington, Oregon and Utah.

by Priscilla Feral

Although gray wolves were reintroduced into the Northern Rocky Mountains in 1995, with promises to foster their recovery, wolf persecution resurfaced 14 years later. In March 2009, the Obama administration's Interior Secretary Ken Salazar activated a Bush administration plan to delist wolves in the Northern Rockies from the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

Wolves Need Your Help NOW

The current budget bill before Congress contains a provision that will take gray wolves off the Endangered Species List in Montana and Idaho. Animal advocates only have a short time to speak out. Currently, there isn't a Senator who has introduced an amendment that will remove this deadly rider from the budget bill.
