Cattle Ranchers Threatened by Gray Wolf Population Taken Aback by Court's "Endangered" Ruling

Tue, 01 Aug 2017 16:03:05 CDT

Cattle Ranchers Threatened by Gray Wolf Population Taken Aback by Court's The following may be attributed to American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall:

“Today, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled a thriving population of 4,000 Gray Wolves that threatens farmers and ranchers in Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin was somehow endangered. This ruling defies common sense.

“The court handed down this opinion despite an abundance of scientific and commercial data showing no material threat to the wolf population. Neither the goals outlined in various recovery plans nor the aggressive and successful leadership to save the wolves in affected states moved the court to do the right thing.

“Congress needs to take action to reform the broken and outdated Endangered Species Act. There’s no question the wolf packs have recovered. We only wish we could say the same of farms and ranches within their reach.”
