Another glorious assault against mother nature and our fellow earthlings by the Bush Regime.  I guess a population of 3,800  across 7 states constitutes the full population of these creatures to the all knowing in DC.

“The federal proposal drew support from several environmentalist groups…”  Can you say “Front groups”.  I wonder who these may be?  “Putting states and tribes in charge means farmers will encounter fewer bureaucratic hurdles in dealing with wolves…”  Hmmm..

“Fewer than 1,000 gray wolves remained in the contiguous United States when the species was listed as endangered in 1974. The latest population estimates were 3,020 in Minnesota, 425 to 455 in Wisconsin and 405 in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.” 

So an increase in population by about 2800 over 30 years constitutes a “thriving” population!  Straight from the pages of the “US Gov’t. and Little Red Riding Hood Book of Wolf Management” no doubt.
