Rosendale rips scheme by coastal elites to spread invasive gray wolves across western US

This week, Representative Rosendale led a letter with eight of his colleagues to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s (USFWS) in response to their announcement that they will initiate a 12-month comprehensive status review of the gray wolf.

“State-run and private conservation efforts have been shown to be more than adequate in managing gray wolves at sustainable levels since delisting and gray wolf populations in the areas designated by these petitions—such as Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming—have far exceeded the federal management objectives of 150 wolves and 15 breeding pairs per state,” the letter states.

The letter goes on to describe the nature of petitions submitted by environmental organizations pushing for a status review of the gray wolf as “at the behest of environmentalist ideologues,” and meant “to further an extreme political agenda,” adding that the USFWS should follow the relevant science that shows the gray wolf exceeding population goals in the western United States.
