Ignoring ESA Goals: ag groups disappointed in gray wolf relisting

Ag groups are expressing their disappointment with a district court ruling that returns the gray wolf to the Endangered Species Act.

Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall calls it a blow to the goals of the Endangered Species Act. He said, “The gray wolf exceeded recovery goals and should be celebrated as an Endangered Species Act success story... Today’s ruling ignored ESA goals and threatens recovery efforts for other animals.”

Public Lands Council’s Executive Director Kaitlynn Glover adds, “It’s disappointing that environmental activism carried more weight than science in this case.”
