Columbus, OH –-(Ammoland.com)-The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) has entered the fray over the listing of wolves on the Endangered Species List.

Last week, the group asked the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) to develop a plan to introduce wofves across the nation.

The petition to FWS called for a nationwide “recovery” program for the wolves, something they say has not been developed.

The Center also stated in its release, “existing recovery plans for wolves in the northern Rocky Mountains and upper Midwest are out of date and apply to a small fraction of the wolf’s historic range” and that wolf populations be established in “suitable habitat in the Pacific Northwest, California, Great Basin, southern Rocky Mountains, Great Plains and New England.”

The CBD is basically asking the Fish and Wildlife Service to reintroduce wolves to areas where they have not existed in decades. This raises numerous issues.

Sportsmen throughout the Great Lakes area, where wolves have long been on the Endangered Species List, have seen their hunting dogs attacked by wolves for years. Farmers in the Great Lakes and the Rocky Mountain regions have spent years dealing with wolf predation of their livestock. Expanding the area where wolves reside will only increase these problems.

“In this group’s dream world, wolves will be roaming from coast to coast and states will be handcuffed in their ability to effectively manage them as they will all be under Endangered Species Act protection,” said Rob Sexton, U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance (USSA) vice president for government affairs.

“This could easily open the door for many negative consequences for American communities.”

The FWS will now review the petition. Should it agree with the petition or be forced to implement it through court action, the entire national wolf policy will have to be rewritten.

The guy who said we should reintroduce the small pox virus sounds like real smart guy. Pretty scary to think an idiot like this owns firearms.

If people are dumb enough to let their dogs run around unattended in an area where there are wolves then this is what they get. If it were left up to the dumb ass rednecks in the world all the wild animals in the world would be killed off. All animals are here for a reason. Humans are the only beings on this earth that are destroying it. Because of humans the wolves natural prey has been reduced to such low numbers they have to resort to killing pets and livestock.

I'm thinking we should reintroduce the smallpox virus back into its historical range. This organism has been ruthlessly stamped out except for a few captive populations; one of those being in Georgia. I suggest we start small with the city of Atlanta. Travelers flying through Hartsfield will quickly seed colonies throughout the country and world. It is well known that only the weakest culls will be affected by this virus resulting is a stronger, healthier base population. The impact on biodiversity will be immediate and lasting.
