  •  the spate of new hunting programs on coyotes (9+ / 0-)

    populating the Sportsman and Outdoorlife channels is troubling since it reinforces the media frame of wolf extinction.

    Ten years later 2012, there were 1,674 wolves counted in 5 states MT, ID, WY, Washington (WA) and Oregon (OR) and this led to the removal of the grey wolf from the Endangered Species List in the Rocky Mountain states by August 2012. Removal means the wolves are no longer protected by the Federal government and they are managed by individual states. States' management means hunting/trapping and for the most part uncontrolled hunting/trapping, open season, no license needed, no bag limit. Whereas before a rancher was permitted to shoot any wolf attacking livestock, now wolves can be shot on sight. De-listing the wolves across the country is a death sentence except for the wolf population in Yellowstone Park which is holding steady at 100 wolves."
