RE: Docket FWS-R6-ES-2008-0008 / RIN 1018-AW37

Gray Wolves Belong on the Federal Endangered Species List

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's proposal to remove Northern Rocky
Mountain gray wolves from the list of endangered and threatened wildlife is a last-ditch gift to logging, drilling and hunting industries.

This reckless bid permits Northern Rockies states to slaughter almost 1,000
gray wolves during the initial year alone. Please register my firm opposition to the Bush Administration's irresponsible management of endangered wildlife. I implore the Interior Department to uphold rigorous federal protection for wolves.

The fate of gray wolves should not be handed over to the states. Wolf pups
continue to succumb to disease and park biologists estimate a diminishing
number of Yellowstone wolves this year. State-sanctioned killing would once
again drive gray wolves to the verge of extinction.

Projected kill quotas reflect a lack of thought about repercussions. Idaho
okays the slaughter of over 400 wolves in the first year. Wyoming's recent
agenda authorizes killing over half the wolves beyond national park borders.

Moreover, biologists claim at least 2,000-3,000 wolves are essential to
recovery. Shortsighted federal recovery goals do not concur with scientific
findings. In fact, last July a federal judge determined that the present
plan is flawed. The rule change would make a bad plan even worse. In
Wyoming, for example, the revised strategy calls for 88% of the state to be
designated a predator zone.

Instead of chipping away at gray wolf restoration, the Fish and Wildlife
Service must advocate an inclusive management plan for the lower-48 states.
Please do not strip current safeguards for wolves, unless a revitalized
national plan -- in which all Northern Rockies states support survival over
slaughter -- is ready to put into practice.
