“The Biden administration has betrayed its duty to protect and recover wolves,” said Kristen Boyles, attorney at Earthjustice. “The Fish and Wildlife Service has the power to stop the immoral killing of wolves right now, and its refusal to act violates the law and the best science, as well as its treaty obligations to tribal nations.”
Since the gray wolf has been removed from the Endangered Species Act, states including Wisconsin, Idaho, and Montana have embraced this new rule by allowing for wolf slaughter. Earthjustice announced its intent to sue the states of Idaho and Montana on these egregious new laws.
