Red Wolf Reintroductions Halted While Changes Considered
RALEIGH, N.C. — Jun 30, 2015, 4:05 PM ET
By JONATHAN DREW Associated Press.

Federal officials said Tuesday that they won't release any more endangered red wolves in eastern North Carolina while they study the feasibility of maintaining the only wild population of the species.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said that no more captive-bred wolves will be used to bolster the population of the carnivores roaming several counties in the eastern part of the state. It will continue to manage the wild population, which was recently estimated to be between 50 and 75 animals.

A decision on whether to end or modify the program has been expected for months as the government undertook a review of the 30-year-old program to restore the wolves to the wild.

But officials said Tuesday they are still gathering information and expect to finish their review by the end of the year.

"There will likely be some who will suggest we are walking away from recovery efforts for the red wolf and simultaneously there will be others who might say we're holding on too tight," said Cindy Dohner, the Southeast regional director for the wildlife service.

Wildlife advocates say that introducing pups born in captivity to wild female wolves has helped replace wolves killed by gunshots, car accidents and other causes. The most recent release included two captive-born pups in 2014, said Pete Benjamin, field supervisor for the wildlife service in Raleigh.

Sierra Weaver, a Chapel Hill-based attorney for the Southern Environmental Law Center, said the government appears to be backing away from an active effort to restore the wolves.

"It seems to be a step away from active management and a step toward leaving the wolves out there to see what happens," she said.

The announcement comes months after a government-commissioned report criticized how the program is run. The evaluation issued in late 2014 found flaws in the program, ranging from inadequate understanding of population trends to poor coordination with local managers.

Once common around the Southeast, the red wolf had been considered extinct in the wild as of 1980 because of factors including hunting and habitat loss. In 1987, wildlife officials released red wolves bred in captivity into the wild in North Carolina.

The wild population of red wolves in North Carolina had hovered around 100 in recent years, according government estimates, with more than a dozen recorded deaths each of the past two years.

Wildlife officials said Tuesday they recently lowered their estimate of the population based on their tracking of the wolves with radio collars, and not because of a significant number of deaths. Benjamin said several wild litters are born each year, but the number of pups varies.

Earlier this year, state wildlife officials asked the federal government to end the program and declare the wolves extinct in the wild, citing the negative evaluation. They say the wolves pose problems when they roam onto private land.

Conservationists argue that the program has been successful and that politics — not natural factors — have been the biggest threat to the wolves. The species' existence has been debated in courtrooms, at high levels of the federal government and in 48,000 public comments.

Elsewhere, other species of wolf have been the subject of conservation efforts and court battles. The gray wolf has rebounded to a population of several thousand in the Midwest and Northern Rockies after it was nearly wiped out from the lower 48 states by the 1970s. In the Southwest, efforts to restore the Mexican gray wolf in southwestern states have been hampered by politics, illegal killings and other factors. About 100 of those wolves are in the wild in several states.

Defenders of Wildlife Bails on Red Wolves -

Defenders of Wildlife has walked off the Red Wolf Recovery Team, claiming it’s headed for a “dead end,” meeting only once in the past five months.

The only wild population of red wolves on earth is in a five-county area of eastern North Carolina where they were reintroduced. The population includes only 45 red wolves.

Environmental groups had contested the N.C. Wildlife Resource Commission’s management of the nearly extinct population, even filing a lawsuit to restrict coyote hunting in red wolf territory to avoid red wolves being mistaken for coyotes and shot.

The Wildlife Commission in turn questioned whether the red wolf reintroduction is a valid and worthwhile undertaking. So the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service suspended the reintroduction program while conducting a feasibility study to that effect.

According to Defenders of Wildlife, the Red Wolf Recovery Team created to guide the study was a team in name only. The team has members who “seek to undermine red wolf recovery efforts at every turn” and is doing nothing to create “a scientifically-based plan for getting the red wolf back on track,” according to Defenders of Wildlife.

Fish and Wildlife, however, says the team is moving forward to come up with a scientifically based plan for the red wolf’s future.

“We will continue our committed work with this team and its members to chart a path forward related to the future of the experimental population of red wolves and the overall recovery program based on the best science,” said Tom MacKenzie, spokesman for Fish and Wildlife.

This is very interesting as Defenders of Wildlife has really raised the eye of many lawmakers in North Carolina given their fundraising practices.

Seems odd that they would just give up like that?  Perhaps they are wanting to keep a low profile given the many questions surrounding their fundraising activities.

Defenders of Wildlife joins RWC & AWI by suing USFWS, demanding they "Resume" the "Killing of Nursing Pups", so we figured we would just call them up...

What's so baffling if how the Animal Welfare Institute can "Champion" a Bill in Congress to "Ban" Steel Leg-hold Traps on all the Federal Refuges at the exact same time they are suing USFWS and asking a Federal Judge to order USFWS to resume their recently halted Steel Jaw Leg-hold Trapping efforts along with Killing Nursing Pups via Den Hunting.

Subject: Mexican Hybrid Wolves & Encumbered "Title"


Dan - Respectfully, now I've asked you to call me how many times & your about to put Mr. Landon in a very compromising spot with the Mexican Government.

Can you explain to me how the US has the authority to direct Mr. Landon to "Illegally" Release Wolves we don't even own??  Yes, Dan, I'm 110% Serious, you probably already figured I had the supporting docs and I do, but they didn't come from FWS, I don't think you even have these rather I suspect they were deliberately discarded.

Derb, I've sent you two text over the weekend and called you this afternoon on ur cell & left a VM, I've called you Ms. Weaver 3 times and requested a call back.

Ms. Clark, I must say you Defenders folks must invest a lot into your switchboard / gatekeeper's salary as she's a bit intrusive with her shake down tactics!!  But she was very polite!  In all seriousness Ms. Clark we need to speak ASAP given our General Assembly's Select Committee meets Wednesday the 16th in Raleigh to address Defenders of Wildlife's fundraising records (below) & I think they may have both the Sect of State & the AG's office present.

I'd suggest you may want to make the trip on Defenders behalf, it begins @ 2:00 pm.  Mr. Ferebee will I believe send out a new communication tomm, part 1 of 10 that clearly shows 60 undisputed Illegal takes that will have to be charged given they "Knowingly Knew" what they were doing!! 

I'm dead serious folks!   Yes, exactly 1/2 of the 120 that USFWS previously "Illegally" took from within the safety of the captive breeding program.  Additionally, your gonna want to fly into Raleigh (RDU), it's brand new and were lucky to have it.

I understand committee members will begin discussing state funding as it relates to the 5 Zoos that both directly and via (identified) funneling, indirectly receive state funds, also address the DOT's past spend due to a 100% Fraudulent Red Wolf Program.  I expect it would be prudent for the state to look to FWS and subrogate to recoup these wasted funds that are deep in the 7 figure range.

Ms. Clark, I do hope you will see fit to call me tomm as Gary speaks very highly of you and said your hearts in the right place and your passionate @ conservation, that we can all admire and respect!!   Folks let's get to communicating and do right here. 

Ms. Clark, I still crack up that you would sue ur buddy Dan as I understand you both respect each other and are good friends, you know what they say Derb...  "Friends don't let Friends sue Friends"!!

Folks, it's time to put the rubber on the road and here's the deal and were you all know your at:

Dan, Defenders, AWI and the RWC can't sue FWS by demanding a federal court force the Service to "Resume Killing Nursing Puppy's" by way of "Illegally Den Hunting" https://vimeo.com/155228796 which became illegal in 1979 one year after Defenders lobbied to have it outlawed.  Derb, the best part is two of ur Plaintiffs Defenders VP & the RWC Co-Wrote the "Nursing Pup Killing Plan". 

Jason, you may be pushing to sue so the marketing department has new material for their "Donor Appeals" however the Defenders "PR Department" will likely "Flip their Lid" & squash the whole suit to keep the pup killing scheme under wraps!   Dan that's great news for you & the Service!!

Next the Animal Welfare Institute just last session tried to have Congress shut down Steel Leg-Hold Trapping on Federal Lands but they've got Derb suing to force the Service to resume the same on guess where, yep...  "Federal Land"...   

Now, predicting what their going to do is difficult seeing Ms. Liss just cut a $3,000,000.00 Check from donors funds to recently settle Racketeering where Animal Welfare Institute paid in part funded their lead witness Tom Ryder $190,000.00 over a two year period along with HSUS and others. 

What's interesting is AWI charged the $3,000,000.00 Racketeering Settlement to "Program Services" on their 990??  So, Dan I've got no read on them or who they may or may not be paying, however the wildcard is if the Service settles AWI could stand to recoup some of their donors money back!

We wont even worry about the Red Wolf Coalition as their tied up responding to a "Crisis" GoFundMe Donor campaign for a Captive Wolf Center that had NO "Crisis".  No kidding, listen to the link you can't make it up! 

https://vimeo.com/151571288

Mr. Landon, Don't let anyone get u fowled up with the Mexican Gov, they own the wolves and everyone that's been released in the US was done so illegally (well deal with that later).  If you have any doubts call Mr. McBride as he's was the USFWS Trapper that they sent to Durango in a mule to get pure wolves that Hendrix "Hybridized Deliberately" just like he did the Florida Panther which is 110% against Congresses intent in passing the 1973 ESA.  Ms. Clark will have to agree with me on this Derb as it was their Sr. VP, Retired FWS Assistant Solicitor General Donald J. Berry that reaffirmed the FWS's August 2, 1977 hybrid opinion.  Mr. Berry even went much past the FWS reaffirmed opinion by quoting the Dusky Seaside Sparrow which FWS defunded and allowed to go extinct (Insert Florida Panther here). https://vimeo.com/151137653 so Landon I'm sure Ms. Clark can get u in touch with Mr. Berry I'm sure.  Last thing we need to happen is you illegally release those Mexican Hendrix Hybrids and you end up in Mexico!  At minimum Dan can he wait until we get a new Sect. Of State, we don't need another Benghazi.  Seriously, we don't have any authority to release Mexico's property as they still hold title!   BTW, y'all keep the "Hendrix Hybrids" quiet, we don't want anyone other than Travio knowing they've all been genetically ruined and the vast amount of historic samples has gone missing...
 

Roy's a heck of a guy with some wonderful story's!  He's still HOT over Hendrix hybridizing all the pure Mexican Wolves he spent all those nights out after riding a mule all day!  Nevertheless Mr. Laudon here's Roy's cell #! If u need any of the original documents etc I have them all, including a good number the Service apparently doesn't even have or were deliberately thrown away



Again Ms. Clark, Gary speaks very highly of you and he's been very helpful in our effort. I hope you all will take the time tomm to return my calls -

Thought I'd check-in to see if, as the Southern Gentlemen in the video says, the "Woof-er" People were still planning on moving forward with the "Pup Killing Plan" and continuing to employee the use of "Steel Leg-hold Traps" on the Wildlife Refuges to trap and sterilize mature coyotes??

LMK!!



Animal Welfare Institute, Defenders of Wildlife and Red Wolf Coalition file a federal lawsuit and demand the judge issue an order forcing USFWS to resume their recently halted use of "Steel Leg-Hold Traps" to catch and sterilize innocent coyotes. These management practices center around an illegal act (banned 1979) known as "Den Hunting", where as the USFWS physically removes newborns from their den to "Kill the Nursing Coyote Puppies".

Plenty of "Seems" "Appears" "Could'a Would'a and Should'a" contained in that paper "Funded" in part by Point Defiance Zoo & recent recipient of $700k check from USFWS.

Looks as if those who's lively hoods are dependent on "Study's" and $7k "Guest of the Court" invoices are aggressively pulling out all the stops to keep the lights on over at the Point Defiance Hybrid Wolf Mill.

What they FAIL to mention is whatever the SE States "Had" USFWS declared it extinct and factually "Invented" a canid that had until 1977 NEVER before existed!

Perhaps they should take the advise of Ron Nowak and just preserve this "Invented" Hybrid Canid as a National Park back in its "Historic Range" @ Tacoma, Washington!

Here is what we can now positively report.  This is, without a shadow of any doubt a complete coverup by the USFWS. 

Quotes from USFWS "Veterinary Pathology Examination / Final Report"   December 12, 2014

- 2 Confirmed Gunshots

- First Confirmed Gunshot (pellets) - "Chronically embedded shot pellets in bone and soft tissues throughout body" 
- Second Confirmed Gunshot (bullet) - "Acute penetrating wound to chest cavity"

a·cute
əˈkyo͞ot/adjective
1.(of a bad, difficult, or unwelcome situation or phenomenon) present or experienced to a severe or intense degree.
"an acute housing shortage"
synonyms: severe, critical, drastic, dire, dreadful, terrible, awful, grave, bad, serious, desperate, dangerous 

Now, when you have CONFIRMED GUNSHOTS how can it be listed as "Suspected Gunshot"??  Unless its a deliberate "KOVER-UP" by USFWS!!!

Defenders of Wildlife = All SMOKE and NO Fire!!

Now this is good, Ben Prater of Defenders of Wildlife is on record stating that a Lawful Coyote Hunting Contest will only multiply the numbers of Coyotes.  This is expressly refuted by the NCWRC biologist McVay.  So are Mr. Praters statements true or did he only respond in such a way to decry a lawful coyote hunting contest?

Mr. Prater, if your statements are true please explain to the Private Landowners within the 5 County area why Defenders of Wildlife is Suing the USFWS in federal court demanding they resume their recently halted Adaptive Nursing Puppy Killing Plan?

After all removing the nursing coyote pups is to prevent hybridization correct?  Thus, if we are to believe what you are selling is the Nursing Puppy Killing Plan you (Defenders) suing over not counterproductive?

Help us all here, Bud…….


“I enjoy hunting and also feel like it’s trying to help somewhat to keep a population down,” Bunn said.

Coyotes eat just about everything, hunters explain, but what eats the coyotes? Nothing. They need a predator.

“They’re not bad animals as long as you control the population, just like any other animal,” said 26-year-old Robert Minton, of Waynesville. Minton, stopping by Bethel Grocery, had just shot two coyote near his hunting cabin in Wilkes County. Not for the hunting contest — just because he wanted to protect the area’s deer population.

It sounds like a simple formula. The more coyotes you kill, the fewer there will be, resulting in less predation on game species. And with most animals, that’s just how it works — but not with coyotes.

“One of the really unique things about coyotes and one of the reasons they are so adaptable is that the more you kill them or persecute them, the more they reproduce,” explained Ben Prater, regional director for Defenders of Wildlife.

It’s called “compensatory reproduction” — when a coyote population experiences increased pressure from hunting, it responds by producing larger litters more often.

“It’s (hunting is) not going to have an impact on the population. In fact, it could have the unintended consequence of only increasing it because of that adaptation,” Prater said.


McVey disagreed with Prater’s conclusion but acknowledged the impact of the coyote’s adaptation. 

“It (hunting) can definitely help, but it has to be a really intensive effort coupled with trapping,” he said, adding that actually eradicating the species is probably out of the question.

It appears the Red Wolf Coalition is trying to
Promote Saving Coyotes on the front end while suing to kill their nursing puppies on the backend. 

That's best defined as a duel revenue stream Eco-Enterprise model.  It works like this, you suppress what your $ue and $ettle lawsuit does (Killing Nursing Puppies) while on the fronted you partner with Project Coyote and donors to accept donations! 

What a slimy mess!

And we encourage a transparent stakeholder input and comments, as its eclipsed over 1000 in just 10 short hours.

Ms. Liss -

As President of the Animal Welfare Institute how does your group justify recently suing USFWS demanding they resume their recently halted Adaptive Nursing Puppy Killing Plan here in North Carolina,  but you sued the same Department of Interior (DOI) in CA to "Save" the same Animals?

(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20160429%2Fb0c6acad1aafb7b587e982f0c553dd33.jpg&hash=bbf9902703932720df66bc55fc0c7182)

Then your in-house legal counsel Ms. Zurado puts this quote out just yesterday! 

“It is time for each and every county across the country to consider and account for the tremendous environmental and ecological consequences of using indiscriminate, lethal, and inhumane wildlife control methods,” said Tara Zuardo, wildlife attorney with the Animal Welfare Institute. “We are hopeful that this step is the beginning of officials considering more effective approaches that don’t involve routine slaughter of vast numbers of wildlife.”

Many of us are confused, are you folks for or against Killing Nursing Puppies or just for the California ones? 

It appears to a few of us, you are running a textbook Sue and Settle scheme and milking the American taxpayers en-route.

This is a great piece the House Natural Resource Committee put out where Fox News a piece that really outlines what appears to resemble your business plan.  The link is below!

Nevertheless, Ms. Liss again is the Animal Welfare Institute for or against Killing Nursing Puppies or just the ones that "Pay"?

Now Ms. Liss has "Flip-Flopped" on "Trapping" of Federal Refuges!

Boy, this is getting confusing... AWI Suing in NC to Enforce the use of Steel Leg-Hold Traps on Federal Lands but begging for support to ban it on Federal Refuge Lands!

WOW!!

Dear Humanitarian,

The Refuge from Cruel Trapping Act has been introduced in both the US House of Representatives and the Senate by Rep. Nita Lowey (D-NY) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ). This bill—H.R. 2016/S. 1081—would prohibit the use of body-gripping traps within the National Wildlife Refuge System (NWRS).

Body-gripping traps—such as strangling snares, Conibear traps, and steel-jaw leghold traps—are inhumane and inherently nonselective. These archaic traps indiscriminately injure and kill countless nontarget animals, including raptors, rabbits, endangered and threatened species, and household pets.

Jawed traps slam closed with bone-crushing force on any animal that trips the device, while strangling snares tighten around the neck or body of their victims until death finally ends the torture. Steel-jaw leghold traps are among the most notorious trapping devices. Almost 90 countries have banned their use, but—astonishingly—these and other cruel traps are still allowed in the United States on federal lands intended to protect and conserve our nation's wildlife. Put simply, this cruelty should not be permitted in any place that is called a "refuge."

The NWRS encompasses the most comprehensive and diverse collection of fish and wildlife habitats in the world, and provides a home for more than 380 endangered species. National wildlife refuges are intended to be safe havens for wildlife, but in over half of the 563 national wildlife refuges, trapping is allowed. Millions of Americans visit refuges each year to hike on trails and observe a wide range of wildlife species in their natural habitats. Visitors should be able to enjoy these areas without fear that they or their pets may stumble upon a body-gripping trap or encounter an injured animal languishing in these gruesome devices.

A national Decision Research public opinion poll showed that 79 percent of Americans believe trapping on national wildlife refuges should be prohibited, while 88 percent believe wildlife and habitat preservation should be the highest priority of the refuge system.

Please be sure to share our “Dear Humanitarian” eAlert with family, friends and co-workers, and encourage them to contact their senators and representatives, too. As always, thank you very much for your help!

Sincerely,

Cathy Liss
President

It appears the Red Wolf Coalition has some sort of issue with anyone other than themselves writing a petition to illustrate the facts.  Citizens Science drafted a Petition to survey the "Human Dimension" Element of the Adaptive Killing of Nursing Pup Management.  Check back shortly as we post the results thus far. 

And we encourage a transparent stakeholder input and comments, as its eclipsed over 1000 in just 10 short hours.

For those just joining in on the Red Wolf Restoration Scandal, the North Carolina Wildlife Resource Commission in and effort to facilitate and additional tool for the management of the invasive coyote approved the lethal take of coyotes on private land 24/7/360.

While it is widely agreed that lawful individuals do mistake a red wolf for a coyote while pursuing their previously afforded take on private lands 24/7/365.  What is most note worthy is the FWS has NO documentation of a red wolf EVER being taken at Night, yet three "Agitator" Groups whom are best classified resembling a "Drop-Down Box" labeled "Not For Profit, Animal Rights Activist", NGO (DOW, AWI & RWC) decided they would what many see as, extortion of the Equal Access to Justice Act (EAJ - Sue & Settle) provision. 

Congress intended on allowing this provision to allow Citizens to bring forward suit against the federal government agencies if needed and recoup their legal expense from the government.

Nearly instaintainsly many rogue public trust pimps latched onto this new business model.  A never ending funnel of taxpayers revenue allowing not for profits, some with annual budgets in excess of $50M to sue the government and collect!  While paying their retired USFWS "CEO" nearly $1/2 of a Million Dollars per year in compensation, courtesy in part by American Taxpayers!

Fox News Exposes how the Not For Profit "Extortion Scheme" Works:

“Every year, the government hands out millions to various green organizations to support their efforts to protect the environment, but what looks like a great idea may have a thornier side. Critics say the same environmentalists receiving the help are bleeding the government dry with mountains of lawsuits paid for by -- guess who? You.

William La Jeunesse is live from Los Angeles. Alright - how many lawsuits are we talking about here, and how much do they cost?

Well John, we’re talking hundreds of lawsuits and millions of dollars paid out in legal fees from your pocket. Let's go to the graphic and I’ll show you some examples.

Wild Earth Guardians - they got $140,000 from the federal government in a grant – and yet they sued the government 241 times.

The Natural Resources Defense Council - $4 million from taxpayers, sued the government 488 times.

You add in the Center for Biological Diversity and the Sierra Club, that’s over 2000 cases in nine years.

Now, the group that put this stuff together, the Western Legacy Alliance, has come up with about $10 million in legal fees in just a few courts with a few groups. Why does it happen?

Well, the government has a fund. It’s called the Equal Access to Justice Act. Now private corporations could not recover, but if you are a nonprofit public interest groups, even if your budget like the Sierra Club is over $50 million a year, they can collect. And in some cases we’re talking $650 an hour for their attorneys.


http://naturalresources.house.gov/newsroom/documentsingle.aspx?DocumentID=156166

Fast forward to 2013…  Dr. David Rabon USFWS Red Wolf Coordinator secures a seat as a Board Member for the little known cottage NGO named the Red Wolf Coalition (RWC).  The RWC had a long standing Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the USFWS whereas they were to advocate for the continued existence of the Red Wolf and foster public acceptance and support though (selectively) educating the public!! 

While employed by the USFWS FOIA records show Dr. Rabon actively worked as a Board Member and was a key driver in bringing the Coyote Court federal case to its initial filling.  Documents show a wide range of behavior that lacks prudent judgement such as penning  (Ghost Writing) a letter on behalf of the RWC, addressed to Director of the FWS Southeast Region and corresponding with the RWC's (Plantiffs) council to set a meeting.

After Private Landowner and current USFWS Red Wolf Feasibility Team Member, Mr. Jett Ferebee "Sunshined" the documents, "Dr. David Rabon, had been dismissed from his longtime position as the Red Wolf Programs Coordinator" (Wild Life, pg 159 by Irus Braverman).

By this time two and a-half NGO's (DOW, AWI & rwc) had filed action in federal court.  The Plaintiffs were seeking to halt the previously afforded lawful take of non-native Coyotes on all lands inclusive of private within the entire 5 county area totaling 1.7 Million Acres.  Due to what will go down likely as the most embarrassing loss, solely due to the representation from one of Roy Cooper's North Carolina Attorney General, assigning an Assistant Attorney General (greenhorn) to defend the unfound claims.  This young gentleman arrived at court no more knowing of the difference between a "Bobcat" or a "Beaver" had it been sitting on his lap.

Given the fine representation NC Attorney General ol' Roy Cooper provided and the fact that ol' Roy's assigned "Greenhorn" Defense Lawyer couldn't finish a sentence without choking on a speed bump which seemed to be embedded inside the roof of his mouth, North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission was forced into a closed door settlement scheme championed by the plaintiff groups, whereas American's Private Landowner's "Unknowingly" have a bureaucratic agency negotiating in this case, their citizens and private property owners privileges and rights away while the landowners are in most cases totally unaware!

This all under the disguise of a dirty "Eco-Enterprising" Scheme known as Sue and Settle. 

At the end of the settlement and final conclusion of the suit the three not for profit NGO's who in total have annual revenue pushing $50M are able to "Invoice" Americas Taxpayers for their in-house legal services, reported by Fox News to be has high as $650 Per Hour.  Keep in mind the defendant was NOT found to be at fault, negligent and no one was convicted of any crime nor did the defendant admit guilt… But you the American Taxpayers have to pay!

Next we will fully explain what will go down in history as one of the all time best, two and a-half Animal Rights Activist Groups "Sue" USFWS demanding they resume their recently halted "Adaptive Nursing Puppy Killing Plan".  Thats correct their plan, the one co-written by one and a-half of the very plaintiffs, the DOW & rwc.  Stating its "Cheaper" "Faster" and the only way to "Remove" (Hammer) litters of Newborn Puppies and with their very next breath belching "Donate Now"!!

Stay tuned and join the conversation, its about to get very entertaining!!

These groups need the lemmings to stay in line as they march them slowly off the cliff.  Unfortunately along come Jett and BR and a few others let the sunshine in on their practices.  One thing that never fails with liberal elites is that the rules which apply to the lemmings don't apply to them.  They know what is best for the masses, and as the masters they will tell all of us what we should do while doing exactly opposite themselves.

All of this occurred under the leadership of RWC Chair Neil Hutt...

Why won't Ms. Hutt & the Red Wolf Coalition "Publicly" denounce the "Adaptive" use of LegHold Traps and its "Den Hunting" plan that specifically targets "Litters" of "Newborn" Nursing Puppies that are physically removed from their dens and "Dispatched" (Killed with a Hammer)??

Wait...  How can the Red Wolf Coalition call themselves a "Animal Protection Group" when they are paying  for the use of Steel LegHold Traps?

I wonder if the #redwolfcoalition has deliberately tried to keep this fact from the public?? 

Advocating for "Adaptive" Killing of Nursing Puppies and "Paying" those whom use Steel LegHold Traps seems to be a stark difference from the advocacy group they portray to trusting donors...

As most are aware the Red Wolf Coalition concocted what we now know is a frivolous federal lawsuit against the North Carolina Wildlife Commission, given the Illegal efforts of USFWS Refuge Staff “Harmed” habitat leading to 94% of all Gunshot Takes.  The above statement is soundly founded in the facts.  The Plaintiffs CANNOT show one single piece of evidence to even suggest the passage of lawful coyote take on private lands 24/7 adversely affected the Red Wolf via Gunshot.

That is correct, not one Gunshot Red Wolf case has any spec of fact suggesting nighttime is or was detrimental to the Genetically Modified Invented Population of Non-Native, Invasive, Experimental and Non-Essential Red Wolves.

N.C. Attorney General Roy Cooper and his “SORRY” Green-Horn Lawyer he assigned to represent the private landowners of North Carolina and NCWRC on the above bogus federal case, caused an epic loss of miserable proportions.  Yes, in the worst sense possible.  Were talking “Clown in the Courtroom” kinda representation.  He sucked that bad, he likely had one of those $199 Online Degrees where you put your Credit Card in and pick up your law degree at the window 30 feet ahead. 

Fast forwarding,  Judge Boyle granted a temporary Injunction that immediately halted the previously afforded lawful privilege of Coyote take on private lands 24/7 encompassing 5 counties or 1.7 Million Acres. 

At that point the Plaintiffs, Red Wolf Coalition, Defenders of Wildlife and the Animal Welfare Institute got exactly what they wanted.  A total ban on Coyote Take within the 5 county area encompassing 1.7 Million Acres.

Next the unthinkable occurs…  September, 2014 - We have Judge Boyle’s Coyote Injunction in place (Terrell Co.) and low and behold an Endangered Red Wolf Gunshot mortality occurs off Federal Lands…

Once an Endangered Red Wolf disperses the Illegally Flooded Federal Refuge Lands, its Endangered Protection is automatically downgraded or relaxed from “Fully Protected” to “Threatened” Status.  This allows for the incidental take (KILL) subsequent to an otherwise legally afforded opportunity, i.e.: “I was Coyote hunting and mistook a collared Red Wolf to be a Coyote”…

That has been on occasion exactly what has occurred, except this time its so very different…  It's the first time in 30 years that the USFWS could EVER Charge the shooter with a crime.  You see, in Tyrrell County NO ONE was extend the lawful opportunity to coyote hunt given Judge Boyle Standing Injunction!!

It becomes very clear “A Federal Cover-Up is Born”… as this Confirmed Gunshot case surprisingly gets no “Media” Play and the Plaintiffs didn’t “Pile-On” with rewards to gain “Free” Ink at the USFWS / Taxpayers expense and an Excuse for another yep….  Donor Appeal…

To summarize, they tied up a Federal Courtroom, Judge Boyle time along with hundreds of thousands in taxpayer expenses, got exactly what they wanted to Shut Down Coyote Hunting to “Save the Genetically Modified Red Wolf”!

Yet when the only Gunshot Red Wolf incident presents itself these three “Public Trust Wolf Pimps” are no were to be found.  No were…  No Reward, No Facebook Post, No Nothing.

Folks, this is the best example yet of the Brazen Disrespect these three Plaintiffs have for Judge Terrance Boyle, his Staff, our state and most certainly the total lack of compassion for the Wildlife they state they Advocate on Behalf of.

Judge Boyle, I trust you see the depth or lack of these three Not For Profits exhibit.  For you to grant them exactly what they asked for then when the “Occurrence” happened they are NO WHERE to be found.  This best illustrates its about the Donations and not the Wildlife!

You have now met three of Americans “Tax Exempt” Public Trust Pimps!!

Three self-proclaimed animal rights groups rwc, DOW & AWI (plaintiffs) sued in federal court requesting Judge Boyle halt all coyote hunting in 5 counties.  Judge Boyle conceded to their request by issuing an immediate injunction halting the lawful take of coyotes on all lands encompassing 1.7 M acres.

Subsequently, there is a confirmed gunshot within the 5 county area and ALL three of these plaintiffs are MUMM on any type of reward or assistance in solving this most suspicious case.

Raising the obvious, it seems all about “Pimping” the Red Wolf for Donations while not caring about its survival…  This is best defined as three Not for Profits or “Public Trust Pimps” lining their coffers at the expense of the American Taxpayers.

To have Judge Boyle grant you exactly what you asked for then do nothing to ensure it is enforced is a new low and shows total disrespect for Judge Boyle and his Federal Court Room.

Subject: Lying Ted, Crooked Hillary, Heart-Worms & "Killing Nursing Puppies" - Co-Written by Red Wolf Coalition & Defenders of Wildlife...


Derb -

This is almost as good as your Plaintiff Mr. MacAllister on behalf of the RWC, personally suing one of his employer's (NC Zoo Society) "Largest" Donors in Federal Court over this Invented Red Wolf... 

Ted -

The Gibbs vs Babbitt case Judge Boyle ruled on, seems to have been decided on a highly "Suspect" $10k Eco-Tourism Study arranged in part by the Defenders of Wildlife (Plaintiff) to illustrate out off state academia members traveling to North Carolina from across state lines & defining, Interstate Commerce.  The historic Gibbs vs Babbitt ruling would run afoul and therefor adversely restrict out of state trade / commerce for Guided, for-profit "Night-Time" Predator (Coyote) Takes within the 5 County area given Judge Boyle's recent injunction / settlement halting the previously afforded lawful take of Coyotes 24/7/365 on Private Lands...

Derb -

The lawsuit they've had you file against USFWS may run hard, a-ground with the broadened "Harm" provision as it relates to the Red Wolf Coalition & Defenders of Wildlife "Nursing Puppy Killing Plan" they Co-Wrote and was subsequently (HARM'ed) adopted by USFWS.

image9.PNG
image10.JPG
image13.JPG
image14.PNG

image2.PNG

You see, based on the Plaintiffs Puppy Killing Plan, USFWS "Killed" (Hammered) Seven (7) ENTIRE Litters of...

Let me catch my breath...

Genetically Modified, Invasive, Non-Native Selectively Bred, Humanly Constructed, Backcrossed, Experimental and Non-Essential "Red Wolf" Nursing Puppies...

Using the below assumption the 7 X 5 = 35 Nursing Red Wolf Denning Puppies and likely their Nursing Mothers and Fathers, add 7x2= 14.

So Adaptive Management Co-Authored by Red Wolf Coalition and Defenders of Wildlife (plaintiffs) Killed & or Sterilized 52 "Critically" Endangered Red Wolves!!

Now we add the 60 Illegal Takes due to Refuge Staff, Illegally Adversely Modifying & Degrading ($5M) "Ideal" Red Wolf habitat (flooding refuge lands) and Forcing "Upland Movement", resulting in 94% of all Gunshot Mortality occurring on private "UP-LANDS" with Relaxed 10-J "Threatened" Status totaling approx:
   
    3  (Sterilized Mature Red Wolves)
  35 (Hammered Nursing Puppies)
   14  (Nursing Mothers & Fathers)
+60  (Wolves that Could Not Swim)
 113  Total "HARM'ed" / Hammered / Killed


image12.PNG
image11.PNG

This is exactly what occurs when you have a "Change in Management" Practice and an Intentional or Negligent "Act" (Harass) occurred circumventing the required Interagency Consultation(s) to assess the "Risk" of the proposed action (Adaptive Puppy Killing Management Plan).

image5.PNG
image6.PNG
image7.PNG
image8.PNG

* Note #3 - Individual members of the species need not be present"!!

So, to summarize the Red Wolf Coalition, Defenders of Wildlife and the Animal Welfare Institute have sued the USFWS demanding the court order USFWS to resume their "Adaptive Harming Nursing Puppy Killing Plan" they Co-Wrote & USFWS adopted with NO Interagency Consult...

image1.PNG

USFWS has admitted they only had Federal Authority to release no more than 6 mated pair of Captive Red Wolves, since USFWS released 132 Captive Red Wolves in total. 

Of the 120 "Illegally" Released Red Wolves USFWS "Illegally" Released 63 of the 120 on Private Lands with NO Federal Authority (Due to Relaxed ESA Protection)!

To review - Of the 120 Red Wolves USFWS "Illegally" removed from captivity and Released with NO Federal Authority it "Killed" 110 of the 120 and mistakenly Sterilized 3 mature Red Wolves leaving 7 out of 120!  Ted, all of this 30 yrs & $34,000,000.00+ later!!  And the Public Trust Sue & Settle Wolf Pimps think nighttime hunting is going to be the demise of a wolf happened to be "Invented"
in 1977, four years after the ESA was to protect it... 

image15.PNG

Folks, it's mighty hard to protect something under a 1973 Act that wasn't even...   Genetically Modified, Selectively Bred, Humanly Constructed, Backcrossed and "Invented" until May 3, 1977...

   

Hey...  Real quick, if anybody's got any news on the September, 2014 "Confirmed" Gunshot Red Wolf that "Likely" died from HeartWorms lets us know as we need to update the below link...

Subject Question(s)

Hi, David,

So glad you could attend the RWC board meeting. We are hard at work on the MoU. Meanwhile, we will all have to keep the strong thoughts going re the grant proposals.

After you left, we discussed fundraising in general. You may remember that in 2006, the International Wolf Center and the Coalition co-sponsored a very popular and successful Red Wolf Country Discovery Eco-Trip.

It got rave reviews, and each organization cleared about $3500. The RWC would like to sponsor another trip like that next year. If we can make 6-7K (or more!), that would add significantly to our bottom line.

Here is the question. In 2006, all money went to the Coalition even though some of the programs associated with the adventure trip were on refuge property.

Howard took us out to the Pungo Unit, we went to Sandy Ridge where Art gave an interpretive program, etc.

What would be the expectations that we (RWC) could use all the proceeds of such a trip for operating money? Is that going to a problem?

Thanks so much!

Neil

(Question) … How can "One" (RWC) benefit off of something held in "Public Trust" for the benefit of all?? I mean when you collect revenue on public land for howling's of alleged Wild Red Wolves?

To All Red Wolf Fans, Supporters, and Advocates, an open letter

From the Executive Director and the Board of Directors of the Red Wolf Coalition


Dear Friends:

Since the Red Wolf Coalition (RWC) was founded in 1997, it has worked productively with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Red Wolf Recovery Program in a shared commitment to protect, educate and advocate on behalf of endangered red wolves.

A component of our education mission has been the public presentations at the Red Wolf Education Center (REC) Red Wolf Exhibit, located on the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge (PLNWR). Conducted by RWC Executive Director Kim Wheeler, these lively interactive programs inform people about red wolves, red wolf recovery, and national wildlife refuge values. Most importantly, the programs engage people in the stewardship of our wildlife and our public lands. Hundreds of people, young and old, have attended these presentations where they have learned about red wolves while watching them in their woodland habitat. Hank and Betty, the two ambassador red wolves at the REC, have provided visitors with the chance to observe red wolves; their wild counterparts are elusive and rarely seen. For past two years, programs at the Red Wolf Exhibit have been free to the public. Additionally, Kim has served as the day-to-day caretaker of the REC's resident wolves, which involves feeding the animals and informally monitoring their health and their interactions with each other.


THE RED WOLF EXHIBIT

The Red Wolf Exhibit at the REC opened in October 2012 after two years of planning and preparation. The RWC obtained all of the federal funding for the habitat enclosures and the perimeter fencing by securing a Rural Development grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Additionally, we obtained private foundation grant money for the veterinary holding pens. The RWC also raised the money for the Pollination Garden planted near the REC, and the organization paid for the bleachers in the woods where program attendees could sit and watch the red wolves. At the formal ribbon-cutting ceremony for the opening of the REC, the Red Wolf Coalition officially donated the Red Wolf Exhibit, which is located on federal land, to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT WITH USFWS

Since November 2012, the RWC and the USFWS have operated under a specific three-year Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) for the REC. This MOA clearly sets forth the responsibilities and expectations of each party regarding the programs at the REC. The RWC has been an excellent partner throughout this period, providing all of the public outreach at the Center (the RWC hosted approximately 750 visitors in 2015). The RWC received high praise from visitors and from the Pocosin Lakes NWR.


THE CURRENT SITUATION

The three-year MOA was due for renewal the end of November 2015. The RWC met recently with the USFWS to discuss the MOA. At that meeting, the USFWS informed RWC that the MOA would not be renewed. No reasons for this decision were provided by personnel at PLNWR or by the USFWS Southeast Regional Office in Atlanta.


WHAT THIS MEANS FOR THE RWC AND THE PUBLIC

The Red Wolf Coalition will no longer be able to conduct wolf programs at the REC, nor will our Executive Director be involved in the care of the wolves. However, please be assured that the wolves will be well cared for by USFWS personnel.

NEXT STEPS

We are actively seeking an official explanation for the decision. Until we have some information, we do not recommend any action on the part of our supporters. Please do not contact PLNWR, USFWS or any other related agency about this issue. We will keep you updated as to if and when we need to mobilize on this issue.

This action on the part of the USFWS has only strengthened our resolve and commitment to red wolves. We will need the Red Wolf Pack (that's you) to stand strong for red wolves more than ever. We know we can count on you. Thank you for your loyalty and your commitment to one of the world's most endangered animals.

Lying Ted, Crooked Hillary and "Nefarious" Neil...

Well the Red Wolf Coalition seems to be unraveling at its core!!  This after Board Members Dr. David Rabon "Exits" his job @ USFWS after ghost writing a letter to the SE Director on behalf of the Red Wolf Coalition. 

Next Ms. Beeland pens a wonderful book chronicling the Red Wolf Programs efforts to "Dart" Borrowed Mutts from the Dare County Pound and Hurl live deer over wolf pens!  She since has resigned from the RWC Board.

Recently, it was discovered Ms. Hutts own RWC Vice President Marc MacAllister voted to pursue one of his employers (NC Zoo Society) "Largest" Donors by filing a Federal Lawsuit against this individual personally and the NCWRC where he serves as am appointed Commissioner.  (Way to go Marc!!)

It's unclear if the NC Zoo Society has forced Mr. MacAllister to resign from either his Full-time Job at the NCZS or as VP of the RWC...

Nevertheless, poor Ms. Hutt seems to be grasping to keep her Donor Funded Facebook Attendant gainfully employed since the "Loss" of their MOU with the USFWS!!  Past Federal Tax Returns show the MOU was quite the lucrative arrangement for the RWC.  From illegally selling t-shirts on Federal Refuge Property to Charging Admission to the Public to access Refuge Lands bought and paid for by those same members of the public!

The best has to be, where the Red Wolf Coalition solicited donors via $1,000.00 Private Wolf Pen Tours on Federal Refuge Lands!!   

Additionally the Red Wolf Coalition was Out of Compliance with the NC Secretary of State's office for many, many years it illegally solicited, charged and collected revenue.

Perhaps this explains the "Rant" below where "Nefarious" Neil (??) goes "Berserk" on a Red Wolf Supporter!!

Subject: Founders Facts or Lack of...

Pete - Curtis Carley was the USFWS Employee whom was charged with "Selecting" the Founders of the Red Wolf Breeding Program.  This is a quote from Mr. Carley in 1979 (below).

Additionally I've spoken with Roy McBride extensively over the last year and he being the one whom trapped the 400 Canids & states the same.  In summary saying they took the most wolfey looking canids, called them Red Wolves and that is what today, your founders are.

It's beyond obvious this fact has been suppressed, and the current "Defining" DNA has nothing at all to do with true "Historic" Red Wolves, rather an arbitrary line of scrimmage, set in sand, post 1999 for purposes of genetically defining today's "Modernized" Red Wolves. 

To that point, what federal authority was ever given to the SSP to genetically "Redefine" an Endangered Species? 

Having a member(s) of the USFWS participating in the 1999 PVHA Workshop doesn't grant any geneticist Federal Authority to totally redefine an endangered species.  In all reality they "Listed" and Endangered Species without following (circumvented) the federally required listing protocol. 

This is the absolute crux of the issue & has nothing to do with hybridization.  It shows that the SSP "Built" a Canid and managed to call it "Endangered".

In summary, the SSP used $34M in federal funds to turn "Tissue" into "Kleenex".  Its really that simple.  Meaning the post 1977 Red Wolves are NOT extended any federal protection at all. 

The above absolutely occurred, everyone is aware of it and we should call it exactly what it is, grossly irresponsible science.

When Robert Wayne stated the facts in his work, USFWS expended great effort to further suppress his facts.  Perhaps Ms. Clark could chime in and recall her "Intergrade" days with the Service?

I am so positive of this, I will just about assure anyone that if I called USFWS, told them I was going to deliberately seek, hunt and kill a modern Red Wolf and video the entire event the Service would never ever gain a conviction.  Yes, I'm really, that sure.

Keep in mind, nothing about the above depends or hinges on hybrid policy only documents the SSP "Built" something that previously NEVER existed nor has it ever been endangered.

Folks, what the facts show is NOT ONE Red Wolf has EVER been Gunshot in North Carolina. 

I'd ask that this be shared with your working group.  It's very clear we have a $34M house that has been built on a $.34 Cent foundation that has "Failed" it's Final Building Inspection!  Calling into question from congress...  "Prudent Spending".

The Red Wolf is kinda like the girlfriend that everyone knows needs to be dumped but you can never bring yourself to breakup with her.

The catch is the Red Wolves are non-native and invasive and were "Illegally" released into North Carolina!

Americas “Wolf-Pimps” seem to be growing in numbers at a rate nearly as fast as Hybridization…  In the latest move this new Coalition of Wolf-Pimps have sent a formal petition to the USFWS attempting to have the Service revise the current 10-J rule package to remove the incidental take provision.

This should be most concerning to ALL North Carolina Landowners given in all actuality prohibits a landowner from lethally shooting and or trapping a Coyote for fear of being prosecuted for the alleged illegal take of an Invented Red Wolf.

(i) Red wolves shall be allowed to establish territories and home ranges
within their historic range, wherever they are found.  But if they are found to make home range on private land, won't USFWS employees need to access this private land to trap and care for them? Over 500 private landowners have already sent letters asking USFWS not be on their land and with most of the refuge land flooded, it might be a risk of drownig even more.

Does anyone know if WRC is investigating the famous gunshot wolf case as illegally coyote hunting?  Since it's illegal to shoot a red wolf the shooter had to be coyote hunting.  Issue is the coyote season was closed due to the injunction the plaintiffs were able to secure.

This puts WRC responsible for investigating it and seeking out the individual who was illegally coyote hunting and happened to shoot a red wolf.

WRC??

FOIA Documents show USFWS "Officially" defines Red Wolves based on a one page document containing a few "Measurements"...  That's correct, skull dimension for example...

Wonder if the Judge would laugh USFWS right out of the courtroom if this square headed selectively bred, humanly constructed canid was intentionally taken? 

So, 30 yrs later USFWS morphs triangle headed wolves into square headed wolves, then leaves the taxpayers with a $34,000,000.00 receipt and counting!!

What a bunch of "Idiots"!!!

Big questions arise over "Killing" Nursing Puppies...

FOIA Documents show the Plaintiffs and Dr. David Rabon who served at the time as a Board Member for Red Wolf Coalition while being employed by the USFWS as the head of its $34M Recovery Program contradict their own lawsuit...

It seems the Red Wolf Coalition encourages its Board Members to "Sue" their employers "partners" (NCWRC) and it's large "Donors" (NC Zoo Society).

Why would Dr. Rabon not recuse himself from discussions around the RWC bringing suit against NCWRC, his employers partner??

Most compelling is the statement by the Red Wolf Coalition below, stating that "Coyote" hunting is counterintuitive under the claim and belief that "Compensatory" Breeding will ADD to the coyote population!!

Folks, that statement is 180 Degrees from their own federal lawsuit, demanding the USFWS resume adaptive management.

Adaptive Management "Centers" on Killing Nursing Puppies. 

Yes, it is this compensatory Puppy "Killing" Scheme the Plaintiffs have sued to resume... not to lessen the fact that two of the plaintiffs co-wrote the "Nursing Puppy Killing" Plan!!  Yes, that is correct... both the RWC & DOW co-wrote the puppy killing plan!!

I guess the RWC is clueless where they really stand!  Defenders of Wildlife SE Rep. Ben Prater recently got caught in the same pickle by opposing a recent NC Coyote Round-Up while supporting the Killing of Nursing Puppies!!

NEIL’S NOTES FROM CONFERENCE CALL
KIM WHEELER, NEIL HUTT, DAVID RABON

FEBRUARY 14, 2012

David Rabon – Summary of Concerns:


1. Night hunting of coyotes and feral swine pose a safety concern to humans and their pets. Authorizing hunting at night increases the potential for unregulated/unlicensed(?) and inexperienced hunters to engage in unsafe activities in areas (e.g., suburban) that pose a greater risk to the general public and their pets. Passing the proposed regulation relies on other existing local laws (e.g., discharging firearms laws) to protect citizens.

2. The proposed regulation to night hunt coyotes and feral swine offers no opportunity to regulate the hunter, collect information on the existing population of coyotes and feral swine, or understand the effect hunting has on either species' populations. Requiring a hunting license would not substantially reduce hunting opportunities for either species, but it would provide an additional level of protection in that a licensed hunter may have additional hunter safety education to reduce the potential for human and wildlife harm. Furthermore, a simple tagging program and tissue sampling for any hunted species would offer a wealth of demographic and genetic data on the species taken. This information would be incredibly useful for monitoring and managing the species in the future, potentially increasing hunting opportunities as the population dynamics of the species are better understood.

3. The proposed night hunting of coyotes and feral swine within the red wolf recovery area could be detrimental to the wild red wolf population. Red wolves are often mistaken for coyotes during daylight hunts, especially during the fall rifle seasons for bear and dear. Night spotlight hunting will only increase the potential for red wolves to be mistaken for coyotes.

Three possible regulation scenarios:

 No coyote hunting in 5-county recovery area
 Hunting with a permit only
 Reporting requirement included – hunting would not be limited but reporting would provide important data. But there is no talk of collecting additional data, which could easily be done. Comment period – February 6th online – 5 meetings in MARCH, the last of which is 3/29. COMMENT PERIOD CLOSES ON APRIL 16, 2012 REASON for rule change is not to control coyotes but to offer hunters additional opportunities. Mounting data show reducing coyote population by hunting is not effective. In fact there are data indicating there is even a bounce-back in coyote populations that are intensively hunted and trapped.

People and Agencies to be Contacted

1. Objection letters should be sent to NC Wildlife Resource Commission – Gordon Meyers
2. Letter should be sent to every commissioner on NCWRC – need list of commissioners
3. RRC Staff – (Rules Review Committee) – need list of staff
4. All members of Non-game Advisory Board – need list of members
5. Walter B. Jones – Red wolves bring potential economic benefit to the region. This rule change would work against that and take away from the economic gain because the effect would be devastating to a federally endangered species.
6. All other members of the NC state legislature
7. Southern Environmental Law Center– Derb Carter (Law-firm Representing Plaintiffs)
8. NCMLS in Durham
9. NC Zoo – Asheboro
10. Science Museum in Raleigh

What is Exhibit H?

POSSIBLE OPTIONS IN NIGHT HUNTING (FERAL WINE AND COYOTES) PROPOSAL:
1. Coyotes could be taken any time except during deer and bear season so as to minimize conflict with deer and bear hunting seasons. That would mean open season on coyotes between January 3 and August 31.
2. Between 1/3 and 8/31, hunting would be allowed WITH A PERMIT
3. Open season year round, 24 hours a day except Sunday

Glad to see such esteem scientist agree we have 3 Versions of Red Wolves...

1) Original Red Wolf 2) 1970 RedWolf (Hybrid) and the 3) Current (Post 1977 Invented) Red Wolf!!

Ms. Hutt,

As Chair of the Not for Profit that has now sued to enforce the killing of denning puppies, I'd suggest the time for you to "Resign" as Chair... is before you... 

You, at minimum owe your donors the truth on what thousands of dollars in donations has been spent advocating for... Killing "Batches" of Nursing Puppies!!

After all, both your Executive Director and past Board Member of the Red Wolf Coalition have both owned up to what really occurs within the "Secret World of the Red Wolf"...  Den-Hunting and Killing "Batches" of Newborn Puppies...

Anyone want to bet there is NO Donor who has even offered a Match?  I bet it's all a big $34M shell game, to Kill Nursing Puppies!

Is this text book "Eco-Extortion" by Nefarious Neil by striking at the emotional cord of our elderly living on a fixed income...

Yes, those whom are twisted into pledging a donation publicly once their Social Security Payment arrives...

This is EPIC...  So after 3 days it seems the best in the Academia world arrived at a consensus that we have 3 "Genetically" Separate Red Wolves...  LMAO!!

1) Pre-Columbian  (True Red Wolf)
2) 1970 Red Wolf (Hybridized & Declared Functionally Extinct)
3) Present Red Wolf (Invented, Humanly Constructed, Selectively Breed, Experimental, Non-Essential and INVENTED Red Wolf)!!! 

LMAO!!!  Now the ESA extends protection to three genetically separate canids but all fall under one listed species!

So now we are "Un-Functionally" Extinct'ing the previously Extinct 1970 Louisiana "Hybrid Swarmed" Red Wolves and saying the remnant population should be protected. 

Boy, the more the Feds spend the better it gets!!

I have to agree with Officer Simms as he states "Somebody better start speaking up and setting it straight"!!

It appears that Officer Simms is past being ready for you to start speaking up Dan and "setting it straight"? 

I know Jett & I would be pleased if someone would "set it straight" as it would bring resolution to the September 2014 Confirmed Gunshot Red Wolf that likely died of Heartworms! 

Officer Simms, Would you share who you have identified below to be the Wolf "Opponents"??

1) Efforts to Locate, Remove and KILL Nursing Puppies and

2) Sterilize Hundreds of Coyotes by using Steel Leg-Hold Traps on Federal Lands?

Now it's so bad for the Animal Welfare Institute it appears many of their loyal supporters & donors are becoming wise to the grave threat their very actions pose to AWI's  "Continued Existence" under its current leadership!

The Press Release below was just released by the Animal Welfare Institute in a FAILED attempt to Spin the facts of their misguided Puppy Killing lawsuit.

AWI now however formally "Endorses" the Sterilization of Coyotes... By doing so the Animal Welfare by default must fully supports the use of "STEEL" Leg-Hold" TRAPS on Federal Land (animal must be trapped) prior to receiving the "Painful" & Highly "Invasive" TAX Payer FUNDED Sterilization Procedure! 

Official documents obtained by Citizens Science show this rogue scheme spans over  16 years on its way to Trapping and subsequently Sterilizing 252 Coyotes, Hybrids and Wolves!

Frank said there was another mortality, I bet it was another one flooded off the refuge and on to private land where they don't have the same protection. Provably on private land that the owner had requested removal. Not shocked this happens when they don't follow their own rules.

The current Chairman of the RWC Board "Neil Hutt" continues an unrelenting effort to "Suppress" the very "Killing" and "Trapping" TRUTH behind the very Puppy Killing Plan the Red Wolf Coalition "Co-Wrote"!

A donation to the Red Wolf Coalition is a donation to advocate for Den Hunting to Kill "Batches" of Nursing Puppies and the use of Cruel Leg-Hold Traps!

RWC Board Chair "Suppressing" the "Trapping" Truth and the Fact that the Red Wolf Coalition "Paid" Trappers for the use of Cruel Leg-Hold Traps"!

David_Rabon@fws.gov, kwheeler@redwolves.com

Subject

Re: Just to be clear. . .

Good idea to look into this. Joey can post whatever he wants whether we like it or not - BUT the fact that he invokes the recovery program and goes on and on about trapping for the Service is getting some heat (two
emails yesterday about it).

The RWC understands the need to live-trap the wolves and coyotes and hybrids. However, the public perception of what that involves will turn into a big backlash if a lot of wolf/coyote fans see this video.

I know, I know - it sounds like I am catering to the bleeding hearts. But unless people understand the minimal risks of serious injury to a wolf and the purpose of this activity, you and we are going to take some flak.

ALSO - what kind of trap is that Joey is using? I need to research it. He does identify it by name.

Perhaps they are investigating the Refuge Manager & Sup. for violating the Harm Provision under section 9 of the ESA.  Degrading Habitation, Adverse Land Modification. 

This all has without question impeded an endangered species ability to...

1) Feed

2) Breed

3) Seek Shelter

Now, if any of this last batch of gunshot wolves was equipped with a collar and staff knowingly knew the said wolf was roaming on one of the nearly 600 parcels where the owners had previously requested removal and it was ignored that would therefor open a separate case of illegal take give the same example as above!

By all accounts you can assume LE is not even expending any time or miles on these Gunshot Cases anymore. 

The judge was very clear in the McKendrick Case stating DO NOT bring me another case for any alleged illegal take unless you can prove the defendant "Knowingly Knew" they illegally took an Endangered Species.

For example, deliberately flooding "Ideal Red Wolf Habitat" resulting in degrading previously stated ideal Habitat best "Defines" Knowingly Know!

The other big mistake they made was outfitting all those sterilized coyotes with the old warn out collars to give the false impression they were collared Red Wolves!

I suppose that worked good until those 40 HWY 64 DOT Collars suddenly disappeared!!

Then they had to fess up to the fact USFWS helped themselves to State Assets ($100k worth of GPS collars) outfitted them all on the sterilized coyotes and happily let the batteries expire!

I'm sure this adverse change in management action (installing placeholder dummy collars on in some cases illegally trapped, bought and sterilized placeholder coyotes falls under that same harm provision!

Why is that?  Private landowners began to shoot "Collared" Canids only if they were "Thought" to be Coyotes. 

Unfortunately, again this was yet another major misstep by the FWS because to date the private landowners whom happened to shoot a collared Red Wolf you an assume they were unable to "Knowingly Know" it was a Red Wolf!

ALERT - Private Landowners... Pending Injunctive Relief??
 
6/20/16 - Plaintiffs file a "New" plea to the Federal Court in requesting Judge Boyle issue an emergency Federal Injunction barring the USFWS from complying with the published Red Wolf removal rules.

What is most interesting is USFWS only had authority to release in total 12 wolves on Federal Lands.

USFWS released 132 wolves, 120 Illegally with 64 of the 120 being released on private land.

So it seems what we have here is a case of three misguided NGO's asking the court to prohibit USFWS from removing the 120 illegally released wolves and their offspring.

Summary, More erosion of YOUR Private Property Rights promoted by out of state Not for Profits!


Southern Environmental Law Center
Court asked to stop USFWS from capturing, killing wild red wolves

June 21, 2016


By failing to comply with the Endangered Species Act, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is further endangering North Carolina’s dramatically declining wild red wolf population. ([emoji767] USFWS) Conservation groups represented by SELC late yesterday asked a federal court to stop the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service from capturing and killing—and authorizing private landowners to capture and kill—members of the rapidly dwindling population of wild red wolves.

Previously, the agency stopped key conservation actions and began authorizing private landowners to kill red wolves on their land. It also has been capturing wolves throughout the five-county red wolf recovery area in North Carolina, and holding them for weeks or months before releasing them into unfamiliar territory, separated from their mates and pack. This practice has raised concerns for conservation groups and scientists who are worried it is harming individual wolves and the population as a whole.

“The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is charged with conserving and recovering this country’s endangered species, but for red wolves it seems to have them on a path towards extinction,” said Senior Attorney Sierra Weaver. “The Service says it’s looking at whether to move forward with the population, but we’re worried there’s not going to be any population left if these actions continue. We’re asking the court to step in and save the wild red wolf.”

The groups—Red Wolf Coalition, Defenders of Wildlife, and the Animal Welfare Institute—brought the federal agency to court for its failure to protect the world’s only wild population of red wolves, previously estimated to be over 100 animals. Court filings have since detailed a population decline of 50% over the course of two years, in conjunction with the agency’s ongoing actions and inactions that continue to imperil the survival and recovery of the species. As one example of the agency’s failure to protect red wolves, the groups cite its 2015 authorization of a private landowner to kill a female suspected of having pups after minimal efforts by the agency to save the animal.

Under the Endangered Species Act, it is unlawful for anyone to “take” (i.e., harass, harm or kill) a red wolf, except in limited circumstances. For twenty years the Service only allowed the taking of “problem wolves,” those that threatened human safety or property, yet it recently expanded its activities to capture – and in some cases allow private landowners to kill – any wolves that enter private land.

A year ago, the USFWS announced that it would suspend the reintroduction of red wolves into eastern North Carolina. The agency also stopped its adaptive management for the population, which has been critical to reducing hybridization with coyotes.

Red wolves bred in captivity were reintroduced on a North Carolina peninsula within their native range in the late 1980s after the species was declared extinct in the wild. Once common throughout the Southeast, intensive predator control programs and loss of habitat decimated wild red wolf populations.

For those just joining the Red Wolf Restoration Scandal, it's important to know just how "Incorrect" the Plaintiffs are in Monday's filing by stating in summary the USFWS somehow reversed the course by "Removing" wolves from private lands...

You see, below is what was "Sold" & "Told" to the Private Landowners in what was initially a successful effort to gain public support under the 10-J Rule.  It is this very rule that allows the USFWS additional flexibility to reintroduce a species to its historic range.

* It's widely known within the academia community the Red Wolf is neither a species (humanly constructed / non-natural) and NO Conclusive evidence exist to support it was ever historically native to North Carolina.   

Below are original documents firmly supporting just how far three rogue NGO's will go to force an invented, non-native animal on your private land.

Why is this happening?  I am at a loss to understand why people insist on killing animals.  They have a right to live just as humans do.  A life is valuable - it doesn't matter what type of body the life inhabits.  Animal lives are just as important as ours and taking a life is criminal.  I truly hate these people.  They have no compassion or humanity.

9:35 - Update from inside the North Carolina General Assembly

NC House Ag Committee overwhelming passed the Bill requesting USFWS Terminate the Red Wolf Program, Trap and Remove Red Wolves.

This sends a very, very strong message to Congress byway of forcing USFWS to end this $34M  fraudulent program.

Why are the Red Wolf Pimps (Red Wolf Coalition) so surprised the NC General Assembly has voted to save the Red Wolf from extinction by requesting the USFWS remove all Wild Red Wolves from the 5 County recovery due to Hybridization?

In fact North Carolina has taken the responsible role by leading the charge to save these animals from coyotes.

NC also clearly values the life of newborn nursing puppies and is at odds with the Animal Welfare Institute, Defenders of Wildlife and the Red Wolf Coalition given these 3 groups advocacy for more trapping and puppy killings.

Update - USFWS has been "Caught" once again defying their own published "Federal Rules"!

This past Thursday USFWS "Released" two mature Red Wolves with NO Federal Authority!

Why is that?  USFWS has NO backbone and is unwilling to stand up to their "Friends" over at Defenders of Wildlife!   

Written confirmation obtained and reaffirmed by USFWS just last year clearly states they have ONLY received Federal Authority to release up to 6 pairs of Wolves or 12 total wolves! 

USFWS is not to ever be trusted!

Perhaps I should remind Nefarious Neil about the Red Wolf that was tracked into Virginia and the VA Gov made NO bones about just how fast USFWS needed to get it removed!

That they did right away!   You have to love 3 NGO's run by 3 out of state Woof Pimps who better know how to manage our land but have yet to put a foot on it!

Pete,

On February 27th (see email below), you stated this in regards to my take permit authorization request:

"I'll be happy to share information with you about the animal and I've got your request for a take authorization letter, which I will begin to process Monday when I'm back in the office."

I have received no further correspondence from you regarding this pending take authorization.

On June 22, USFWS DOJ attorneys filed this in Federal Court (see attached):

 "As you are aware, the Service previously told Plaintiffs that it has no intention or plan to issue any
take authorizations pursuant to 50 C.F.R. § 17.84(c)(4)(v) during the pendency of this district
court case. See Attached 3/16/16 Letter."

"Since this litigation began, the Service has issued no take authorizations pursuant to 50 C.F.R. §
17.84(c)(4)(v). Furthermore, there are no pending requests for take authorizations from private
landowners to which the Service could even respond at this time."

"the Service has no current plan or intention to issue any take authorizations or to remove any wolves
pursuant to 50 C.F.R. §§ 17.84(c)(4)(v) or (c)(10)"

I have concluded that there is simply no room for honesty and integrity in the Red Wolf Program (never has been) from either USFWS, the NGOs or now even the US DOJ in a Federal Court room.  Not once did the DOJ attorney tell Judge Boyle of my pending take request and the FACT that removal of unwanted wolves from private lands is mandated by Federal Rules.  DOJ attorneys actually said they had NO intentions of removing any unwanted wolves from private lands as mandated by Federal Rule and requested by our NCWRC. 

Shame on USFWS.

Jett Ferebee
(252) 714 2774

PS.  I understand the wolf I returned to you is now released.  I thought you said you would share information with me regarding this wolf?  When that wolf returns to my farm, based on the DOJ statement, I will have no legal means for its removal as USFWS agreed in their own Federal Rules. 

Who is lying to who?  Is USFWS lying to the Citizens of NC or is USFWS lying to a Federal Judge and their Plaintiffs?

Pete,

Thanks for your response.
 
USFWS has never operated this program within its Federal rules.  If you had, this nonnative invasive "red wolf"  would not even be in our State to begin with and it certainly would not be on my farm.  You were to monitor this canine with the collar you strapped on its neck and return it to your flooded refuge when it was forced by your actions to swim off.  You should issue a life jacket to your "red wolves" next time if USFWS is going to flood their home.

My concern is for the animal also.  Only 2 of your last 15 releases are currently alive.  Your wolf population has now crashed due to your management actions and coyote hybridization. You have no more breeding pairs now than you had 27 years ago when you first released so called "red wolves" in our State.


Accordingly, this wolf has little chance of survival in the wild, especially since it has no place to live now that USFWS has flooded its "ideal" habitat and forced your "wolves" onto private land where they are not supposed to be.  At least 60 "red wolves" have now been shot on private land as you have violated your own Section 7 consult and not kept these wolves on your land as required in your rules and Section 7 consult.  If this is a wolf, save it and use it to boost your captive population which also has never reached its goal 30 years later, because your biologists robbed 120 wolves from the captive population without a section 7 consult to do so.

Really Pete, I am busy saving your wolves while USFWS management actions are what is killing them.  Can you not come to terms with this?

You can pick up your runaway canine at the dog pound. I will contact Tyrrell County Animal Control.

I expect my take permit to be issued.
I expect to be given the animal ID number.
If the animal is not a wolf, I want the animal returned to me. You can keep the collar.

Good morning Jett.  As you know, we operate in accordance with our rules which state that when an animal is removed from property where it is not wanted we are to release it as soon as possible back into the wild, unless there are health or behavioral issues that preclude release.  We will do everything we can within our rules to reduce the likelihood of it returning to your farm.

I'll be happy to share information with you about the animal and I've got your request for a take authorization letter, which I will begin to process Monday when I'm back in the office.

Right now I just need my staff to retrieve the animal so it can be safely dealt with.  It has already been in that kennel too long.  I've got a guy waiting to come get it.  Please let me know how you wish to accomplish the transfer.  Thanks,

Pete

Pete,

Thanks for the call.  At this point, I prefer to deal with you in writing only.
I'm sick and tired of playing foolish games with USFWS. If USFWS can not abide by their own Federal Rules, then end this illegal and failed program now.

Do I have a commitment from USFWS to not re-release this animal only to return to my land?
Will you give me the wolf ID number?
Will you renew my take permit?

Should I just call Tyrrell County Animal Control as I do not trust your agents on my farm ever again?

I hate to just let this animal loose, as it may get shot like 60 other "red wolves" have already been shot because USFWS flooded the "ideal" Federal habitat for their experimental wolf and then USFWS biologists refused to remove the fleeing wolves from private land as USFWS promised.
 
I am the one citizen who is trying to cooperate with USFWS and operate within the law, but USFWS needs to do their part or as Director Ashe has stated - future reintroduction efforts dependent upon private landowner support are doomed.

Jett

*Please note I have copied the NC Senate Ag Committee and the NC House Select Committee on Wildlife.  As I will demonstrate next week, the flooding issues and wolf issues in this part of our State are very interrelated with one entity to blame.

Pete,

Your final response to me regarding my request for renewal of my take permit was that USFWS does not have any wolves on my property.  I disagreed. You told me that in order to renew my take permit, I must first demonstrate or show proof that I have wolves on my property.  For the third year in a row, I have proven USFWS wrong.  Once again, USFWS has demonstrated they have no idea of where or how many wolves there are in our State. 

You told me a picture or a track would suffice as proof.  Attached are pictures of the large canine trapped on my farm yesterday along with a picture of a large track from one of the three very large canines currently using my farm. 

Also attached is my previous take permit documenting my cooperation with USFWS.  A picture of my flooded farm is attached documenting USFWS's unwillingness to cooperate with me and many other landowners in my area.

Please contact me today regarding where to mail my take permit.  The issuance of this permit is mandated by the USFWS Federal Rules for this nonessential experimental population of "red wolves".

I would like to turn this collared (looks like GPS collar) animal over to you alive please, if it is indeed what you define as your "red wolf".  I will want to be given your wolf ID number as well as written assurances that this animal will not be released, only to return back to my farm.  Policing and keeping up with your runaway dogs and flood waters is proving very costly and time consuming to me and many others in our State.

Sincerely,

Jett Ferebee

Pete,

I have an important meeting with many landowners in our area tonight regarding the USFWS Red Wolf Program and the USFWS Refuge water management plan. 

Many of us have been pumping your refuge water off of our crops for several days and nights now.  We are tired.  I do not even want to estimate our crop losses exacerbated by the USFWS's irresponsible water management on the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife refuge. 

No wonder your wolves can not live on the refuge anymore.  USFWS has "pre-flooded" this land so that it can no longer absorb rainfall.  Short of USFWS inventing and selectively breeding an experimental wolf with gills and webbed feet, I do not think you will ever have wolves on your federal land.

It is important to me and this group of landowners to understand if my take permit will be renewed in light of the recent legal threats against USFWS from several non-landowner activist groups.  I would like an answer today please.

Sincerely,

Jett Ferebee

Over the last 2 years, I have cooperated with USFWS and trapped and crated 25 canines of which all wolves were returned to USFWS at no cost to the Service.

I appreciate your consideration of my request to renew this permit.

The Federal Rules for requesting the Removal of a Red Wolf are very clear, additionally the USFWS has a long history of conforming with its obligated removal request by Private Landowners.

With no change in the Federal Rule or Law why does USFWS continue to Stonewall and frankly ignore the many standing and current removal request?

Why did just last week the DOJ Factually LIE to Federal Judge Terrance Boyle by stating the USFWS had NO Pending Removal Request?

For those seeking clarity on the law relative to taking a Red Wolf incidentally while pursuing other lawful activities, this should serve to cast light on the Services policy.

It also clearly states what is required to be compliant with the law.

12:00 Midnight EST Update

This is mighty interesting just how this may have occurred... 

Anyone find it odd that USFWS has now hired an independent investigative firm to sort this out?

This is getting stranger by the hour... Frankly it raises the "$1,000.00" question... Who had access to the Sandy Ridge facility?

Currently were working to find out just how many days ago these wolves escaped...  Additionally we are very concerned about their welfare, it's not clear if USFWS had provided the needed shots and heartworm vaccinations due to the young ages.   Stay tuned.

Locals Re-Capture Red Wolf in prior escape.  Begging the question why hasn't the USFWS and the SSP Captive Breeding program followed their own published protocol by notifying the media and public within 24 hours? 

More documented dishonesty from the USFWS and one more proven case of USFWS / SSP failing to adhere to their own rules and protocol...





May 15, 1994

Author: John O’Connor, Staff writer

State Journal-Register, The (Springfield, IL)

Swashbuckling volunteers cruising open fields in all-terrain vehicles popped off two tranquilizer darts Saturday to finally snag Scarlett, the Henson Robinson Zoo’s red wolf who has been on the loose since Monday.

Zoo officials and federal experts knocked the pregnant wolf down at 7:45 p.m. in a field near Lake Sanchrist, southeast of Springfield.

In the end, zoo director Mike Janis believes Scarlett wanted to come home.

“It was probably a rush to be free, but it was probably terrifying,” Janis said. “It had to be terrifying to be out there, exposed to cars and dogs and unfamiliar territory. I think she’s going to be very relieved, if that’s the right word, to be back” at the zoo.

At a holding pen at the zoo, Scarlett will be watched for 10 days to ensure she didn’t pick up parasites or hurt herself in any other way, Janis said.

“We want to cool her down a few days,” he said. “She’s been out theredoing work she isn’t used to and she needs a couple of days to settle down some.”

Scarlett, expected to give birth by week’s end, didn’t appear sick or injured. She was so healthy even two tranquilizer darts didn’t completely fell her.

Janis and zoo staff members learned Scarlett was in a resident’s yard at 5 p.m., eyeing guinea and peal fowl there. They arrived on the scene and followed the wolf for about an hour as they readied humane traps and tried to get close enough for a shot.

Unlike previous nights on her trail, she didn’t escape into any forested areas. Officials ringed her in two farmers’ fields.

“We had three all-terrain vehicles out there,” Janis said. “She broke, and we took off after here. Talon Thornton, the assistant zoo director, got the first dart into her, but she still ran a ways before we got the second shot into her.

“She never did go competely down,” he said. But the trackers threw a net over her, covered her face with a shirt and Thornton sacrificed his belt to hold her jaws while she was transferred to a mobile kennel.

Scarlett, who escaped briefly from previous homes — zoos in Victoria, Texas and Knoxville, Tenn. — will be separated from her mate, Blizter, for more than a week while she’s observed. Officials will test her waste material for parasites and await results of a blood test taken Saturday night.

They will watch for fever, that’s she’s drinking enough water and eating enough. Her diet for a week likely has been road kill.

“She’s an amazing animal and a real adversary,” Janis said. “She gave us all she was worth and we gave her all we were worth.”

Janis continued to praise the many people who called in with tips and sightings.

“I can’t thank the public enough,” Janis said. “It is unlikely just our group would have been able to find her without the calls from the public.”

Red wolf experts from the Tacoma, Wash. zoo and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, flown in to help find Scarlett, will leave town today, Janis said.

Citizens Science has obtained additional official documents outlining the corrective action plan should a single wolf escape.  This being documented as multiple wolves that escaped and most interestingly managed to circumvent two layers of captive wolf fencing raises some serious eyebrows!

We have additional concern given the age of both these Emergency Recapture Plans...  With the SSP's plan drafted by Mr. Will Wadell and dated 1998 with contact numbers 18 years out of date!

Further the USFWS's plan just obtained by Citizens Science is so out of date it includes a "Beeper" number!  Additionally, nearly 1/2 of the Emergency Contacts listed are NO longer with the Red Wolf Recovery Team.

Two things are for sure, we can assume the Red Wolf Team is in Full "Recovery" Mode right now and second they are just as "Unprepared" for an Emergency as they were to Reintroduce Wolves outside their historic range!

Wolf pup missing from the Ross Park Zoo since Dec. 3 was found dead Wednesday in a ravine outside the property. With its death, the zoo's red wolf collection is closed.

MARY PAT HYLAND

Where is the outrage?

Quite a turnabout from what started as a joyful year for the zoo's endangered species program. The adult red wolves Chance and Libby had an unexpected litter of three pups on May 9. The zoo was one of 33 nationwide breeding the animals in captivity.

Will Waddell, coordinator of the U.S. Red Wolf Species Survival Plan, said in a phone interview that there were about eight litters born last year. That meant there were 250 red wolves nationwide. Now there are 249.

As is common practice, Chance and Libby were shipped away to separate facilities for breeding on Dec. 1. When the pup went missing on Dec. 3, Waddell made an emergency visit from Tacoma, Wash., to assist other U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service experts in trying to recapture it.

Waddell says that in 20 years, with thousands raised successfully through the program, wolves have escaped from their facilities only four times. He says there was evidence that the Ross Park Zoo pups may have been slipping through their enclosure for a while. A second missing pup was later recaptured, he said. Because the wolves' enclosure was deemed inadequate, the experts "didn't want to risk the loss of the others," he said. Two remaining siblings were taken to a facility in North Carolina.

Since Zoo Director Jarod Miller came on board in March, there has been a dramatic staff turnover. Within three months of his arrival, the three most senior employees were forced out. One was Howard Courtright, a 25-year veteran and former operations manager. Chances are his trained eye from years of maintaining exhibits might have noticed the wear or telltale clump of fur on the enclosure's corner where the wolves escaped.

Miller would have been wise to keep these three on staff until he had been at the zoo at least a year to see it through all the seasons. After this purge, remaining employees feared for their jobs. They sought protection by joining the Teamsters union. Never in the history of the zoo had employees sought to unionize. That should have been a red flag if the zoo board was paying attention. Instead, the board and Miller decided to fight the unionization, incurring thousands of dollars in unnecessary legal costs.

Since Miller came on board, staff have been alarmed by some of his decisions. My sources say new animals were introduced into the collection without undergoing recommended periods of quarantine from the American Zoological and Aquarium Association. At the Feast with the Beasts event held in August, a wallaby was attacked by two emus when Miller tried to introduce them. Also, his appearance on Jay Leno's show with a baby chimpanzee and wolf pup drew national protests because they were considered too young to be taken from their mothers.

The zoo has other problems. For example, does the public know that some animals listed on the zoo's animal Adoption Enrollment Form are dead or no longer in the collection? On Thursday, the Web site form still listed a red wolf as an animal "adoptable" for $250.


(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20160701%2F51c1f167edb1b811903cc7ae17ac63ea.jpg&hash=dc6c5f8675dff1ed871497b3c38b41a3)


What's with the zoo board? Are members blinded by Miller's personality and ability to namedrop Leno and Wayne Brady? Why did members rewrite their bylaws to make meetings closed to staff and zoological society members, reversing the previous open-door policy?

Former board member Millie Gage has championed the endangered species exhibits at the zoo. The Teddy Bear Artists Invitational she runs has raised about $100,000 for Ross Park. This money funded the rainforest aviary, as well as the Amur leopard, coatimundi and lemur exhibits. The board suddenly rejected funds unless they could be used toward general expenses, not the endangered species exhibits they were raised for, Gage told the Press & Sun-Bulletin in November.

Isn't the zoo supposedly in desperate need of cash? Or is it in desperate need of better management?

If that dead wolf could speak, it might say the latter.

One of 3 endangered red wolves escaped from a zoo in New York state in early December and remains at large, according to Buddy Fazio, leader of the red wolf recovery plan for the U.S.F.W.S. in North Carolina.

Service biologists and staff at Ross Park Zoo in Binghamton have been unable to recapture the wolf. Zoo officials believe that the wolf remains in the area, and they are continuing to maintain traps. A 2nd wolf also escaped but was captured.

"Red wolves are known for their ingenuity and can surprise even the most experienced animal handlers," said Fazio.

"We are still unsure as to how she did escape the enclosure," said Executive Director Jarod Miller of the Ross Park Zoo. "There weren't any obvious exit points under the exhibit fencing nor any signs of where she may have gone over the fencing. We are continuing our efforts until she is recaptured."

The escaped wolf is just seven months old and weighs 45 to 50 pounds, Fazio said. She is slightly larger than a local coyote but has different characteristics. Red wolves move more deliberately than coyotes. They have a longer, more robust or dog-like snout compared to the shorter, more pointed and narrow coyote snout. While red wolves have more red or buff-colored fur, some coyotes have similar coloration.

Fazio said that if people see a canid traveling alone or hear deeper-toned wolf howls instead of higher-toned yapping coyote howls, the wolf may be in their area. If so, they should contact the zoo by calling 607-724-5461.

The missing wolf is valuable for genetic management as part of a captive breeding plan to recover the species. Fazio believes that the wolf has a 50/50 chance of survival in the wild. "She could be misidentified by hunters, attacked by aggressive coyotes or hit by a vehicle," Fazio said.

The captive breeding plan for red wolves uses some 40 facilities across the country. This is the 5th escaped wolf in the 29-year history of the program. 2 wolves escaped separately from an Illinois zoo in the mid-1990s and were recaptured. 2 wolves escaped from separate Texas facilities, one in the mid-1980s and one in 2000, and were not recaptured.

Rowan County Red Wolf Escapes from Zoo

By Kirsten Valle

Salisbury Post

Dan Nicholas Park officials are still looking for a red wolf that escaped Wednesday afternoon just minutes after being placed in a new habitat at Rowan Wildlife Adventures.

Two callers reported seeing the wolf feeding on a dead animal along Bringle Ferry Road Thursday evening, said Bob Pendergrass, supervisor of the park's Nature Center.

In case those sightings don't lead to capturing the animal, the park is bringing in an expert from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to help with the search.

"We've got some experience coming in to help us, so hopefully things will start to look up," Pendergrass said. "He's going to be an asset to us."

The wildlife service representative has had experience working with red wolves; among other projects, he helped reintroduce the animals to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park in the 1990s, Pendergrass said.

In addition to waiting for the expert, park officials are asking citizens to keep an eye out for the wolf along Bringle Ferry Road and near Dan Nicholas Park.

The wolf is about a year old and looks like a long-legged coyote, Pendergrass said Thursday.

Park officials brought it, along with its brother, from the Western Carolina Nature Center to Rowan County just before noon Wednesday.

It escaped by climbing an 8-foot fence minutes after handlers unloaded it into its new habitat.

Pendergrass said the wolf is not dangerous; he will likely stay away from people.

Anyone with information is asked to call Pendergrass at 704-216-7819.

9:00 pm EST Update -

There is so much happening behind the scenes on all aspects of this $34M Federal Hybrid Wolf Fraud, let me update the followers...

All should know that the House Rules Committee has moved HB 1144 and ordered it to be Calendared.

A tidbit here, I would suggest 99% of the members in the General Assembly are well aware of just how Fraudulent this whole Red Wolf Program is. 

They look forward to receiving Mr. Ferebee's emails documenting the Lies of USFWS and the Fundraising efforts of the Red Wolf Coalition & Defenders of Wildlife. 

Most find it humorous that donors of Defenders of Wildlife and the Red Wolf Coalition continue to allow themselves to be hoodwinked into giving money to these two groups whom turn around and use those same funds in part to advocate for the enforcement of the "Puppy Killing Plan" they co-authored!  google "Killing Nursing Puppies" #killingnursingpuppies

In summary when most members receive an email in support of the Red Wolf Recovery Program, it's likely viewed as advocating for "Killing Nursing Puppies" and they simply delete it and may even mumble "there goes another hoodwinked donating sucker"...

This "Party" of the Wolf "Pimps" is coming to a very public halt very soon...

Developing Situation -

Critically Endangered Wolves mysteriously “Escaped” the Captive Species Survival Program (SSP) known as Sandy Ridge!
The Point Defiance Zoo serves as the headquarters for this Captive Wolf Test Lab,  calls to both the USFWS and Point Defiance Zoo were met with responses of having absolutely NO Knowledge of this Active Escape Situation that remains very fluid.

Conservationist want answers to their grave concerns given two of these wolves are Juveniles and likely unable to successfully seek prey due to having such low fitness, inbreeding depression resulting from years of human genetic constructed and artificial selective breeding.

No Wild Animal deserves to be “Selectively Bred” in the Point Defiance Zoo’s “Wolf Mill”.   Its time to put an end to the Point Defiance Zoo’s Taxpayer Funded “Test-Lab” aka: Wolf Mill… 

The Stud Book documents Hundreds of Wolves that were artificially bred by the Point Defiance Zoo to only be “Killed” shortly after birth simply because they did not “Look” Wolf Like.  Sadly the Point Defiance Zoo list each animal by number rather then providing the dignity of a name!

Wolves are NOT Laboratory Test Animals!!

All the rules and regs made by USFWS for this red wolf program must have just been to calm wolf opponents and not to actually be followed. More cover-ups in this program than in Hilliary's POTUS run. What a way for USFWS to regain trust! This farce should have never been started, at least not with lies to the public. But then without the lies it would not have.

As I see it the red wolf program will play out in one of two ways, it can stay as is and USFWS will leave the wolves on private land where they are not welcome, USFWS employees will have to come on the private land to trap and care for the wolf, where they too are not welcome or they could do as NCWRC has asked and trap the remaining wolves and put them back in the captive breeding program. USFWS doesn't know where all their wolves are but the private landowners do and may help locate the wolves to trap and save them if they are being moved out.But if they say no the wolves will stay on your private land, I don't think they will get the response they want or any help locating them. Don't leave these wolves in this hostile environment as it may be the final nail in the red wolves coffin. One way or another this red wolf program as we know it is coming to an end here. JMHO            What's your opinion?

I agree Odie...  In what's is another twist in the recovery efforts, this document states that by the plaintiffs being so "Hammer" Hoe to dispatch some more pups, its actually killing the program as Pete suggest.

I guess when they "Hammer" the whole Batch they get two batches back??

But let's not forget that Adaptive Management (Dispatching all Denning Coyote Pups) has been "Successful"...   Idiots --

I wonder what AWI & RWC's stance is on using "Live Chickens" to Save a Genetically Engineered Wolf that NEVER existed until 4 years after the ESA was passed??

Or using "Deceived Donor's" Funds to Advocate and even Sue to expand Cruel Trapping on wildlife refuges and Dispatch Nursing Puppies?

I wonder what AWI & RWC's stance is on using "Live Chickens" to Save a Genetically Engineered Wolf that NEVER existed until 4 years after the ESA was passed??

Or using "Deceived Donor's" Funds to Advocate and even Sue to expand Cruel Trapping on wildlife refuges and Dispatch Nursing Puppies?

Below is a recent quote from a USFWS Field Biologist. 

The statement about “there’s a lot of recovery out there on the ground that’s not happening because of the constrained budget that our agency is operating under”… 

We would be doing conservation within the United States a total disservice to not acknowledge the Hybrid Red Wolf is the single largest recovery cost driver on the SE Regions budget at nearly $1.5M per year.  USFWS has been clear in stating what Congresses Intent was by the passage of the 1973 ESA and it was not to protect a genetically engineered, selectively bred, humanly constructed Species.

Knowing the vast number of species currently listed endangered with NO available funding I find the statement by this Field Biologist very, very compelling.  Meaning by continuing to fund a non-covered canid, that’s in its own right, going against Congress’s intent from 1973. 

All for something that never existed until 1977, when the first two genetically engineered canid litters were born and subsequently euthanized after the Captive Breeding Staff discovered they had mistakenly humanly constructed Hybrids.

To summarize is simple, by continuing to neglect true non-hybrid endangered animals is the “Price You Pay” to ensure Cathy Liss, Jamie Rappaport Clark and Kim Wheeler can continued to Profit off Americas Public Trust.   

All the while we have hundreds of true species with NO FUNDING.



Another field biologist describes how things have changed over the past decade or so and how it has impacted endangered and threatened species conservation actions.

“The bottom line is we’re spread incredibly thin and we’re still doing an amazing amount of work for the limited staff and budgets we have, but there's a price to be paid. And there’s a lot of recovery out there on the ground that’s not happening because of the constrained budget that our agency is operating under.”

A recent 2015 Thesis affords great insight to the gross lack of policy training inside the USFWS among its key ESA Biologist.

What is occurring on the ground with those very USFWS Field Biologist charged with making listing recommendations?

12 out of the 20 USFWS Field Biologist interviewed are Unsure or Unaware of Hybrid Policy and its history.

This is the same Field Staff making listing recommendations and unknowingly encumbering Habitat for Hybrid plants and animals that otherwise we're not intended to be covered by Congress.

WHEN:

Thursday 7/14 @ 9:00 AM


WHERE:

USFWS Pocosin Lakes Wildlife Refuge Manager, Howard Phillips will hold a Hydrology Workshop at 9:00am at the Walter B. Jones Center located in Columbia, NC.

Attendies Include:

   - Private Landowners
   - Duke University Wetlands Center
   - Nature Conservancy
   - Red Wolf Supporters
   - Kris Bass Engineering

This meeting will follow the emergency field hearing called by the NC General Assembly Ag Committee and the subsequent Committee Hearing which took place at the General Assembly to address in part how USFWS intends to mitigate hydraulic trespass which has degraded valuable acreage of private Ag lands.

Additionally, negative impacts caused by the Pocosin Re-Hydration (Flooding) project include flooding the Critically Endangered Red Wolves from its previously stated "Ideal Red Wolf Habitat".  This adversely impacted the Endangered Wolfs ability to 1) Breed 2) Feed & 3) Shelter.

After you have read the above, try and digest this Quote: 

"The Service could list hybrids of and endangered species as either endangered or threatened if it were determined that such listing were necessary for the protection of the listed species"...

However the Service declared that very listed species "Extinct in the Wild"...

The USFWS then paid the Point Defiance Zoo, millions of dollars via federal grants and only received a "humanly constructed and selectively bred, non-natural "Anthropogenicly Polluted Hybrid".

The Point Defiance Zoo (captive breeding facility) then delivered its very first "Computer Modeled" (SPARKED) "Anthropogenicly Polluted Hybrid" Litter that genetically never existed until May the 3nd, 1977.

Sadly, the Point Defiance Zoo dispatched the entire batch, the first invented litter as they were deemed to be Hybrids or a "Total Loss" with no Salvage Value.

More sadness followed the very next day, as documented within the 2013 SSP Studbook the second invented "Anthropogenicly Polluted Hybrid" litter was born, however this entire batch of pups was dispatched after birth given their Humanly Constructed origin.

Documents obtained show the Point Defiance Zoo's Species Survival Program has selectively bred over 230 of these hybrid puppies in captivity, many of which were quickly "Dispatched" after it was determined they didn't look "Wolf'ie Enough"

The documents above shed great light on what is America's largest wildlife fraud coming in collectively over $1B dollars.

The redundant amount of evidence supported by the past actions of the Service to allow the Dusky Sparrow to go extinct is in harmony with Congresses intent and passage of the 1973 ESA.

In summary, it orders the protection of the ecosystem before extending protection to any species or subspecies.

Humanly constructing captive canids 3000 miles away at the Point Defiance Zoo to resemble what someone thinks a Red Wolf would look like is an absolute pipe dream of a few profiting Biologist and Curator (Inventor).

To then ship these Captive Canids that never historicly existed 3000 miles east serves to put our eastern Eco-system at risk due to disease and parasites that are non-native.

This is directly contrary to the 1973 ESA where it demands we protect the Eco-system first and native animals second.

Without any doubt the modern Red Wolf is absolutely NOT Afforded ANY Coverage or Protection under the ESA.  Period.   And do not think the FWS doesn't know it...

In addition now we just learn "TWO" Red Wolves died of Suspected or Confirmed Gunshot during the timeline Judge Boyle enacted a Federal Injunction Halting ALL Coyote Hunting. 

Meaning no individual could have been Coyote hunting lawfully and mistakenly Gunshot a Red Wolf. 


https://vimeo.com/127324812#t=72s


Why did USFWS "Close" a Gunshot Case that violated a Federal Injunction?

We're past and present USFWS Cellular Tower records triangulated to find the locations of each individual questioned?

We're ballistics investigated by using the recovered bullets vs the firearms owned by both past and present USFWS Employees?

Why does USFWS "Refuse" to issue a press release announcing the largest Gunshot reward of $52,050.00 ever posted in part by Private Landowners within the history of the Red Wolf Program for the arrest and conviction regarding the September 2014 Gunshot Red Wolf?

This may be the best cover-up gone bad that continues to get worse by the day... 

It's the Case of an X-Ray Confirmed Gunshot Wolf that likely died of Heart-Worms that will not go away...

Recently a DOJ Litigation Attorney stated under oath, there were NO outstanding Red Wolf Removal request outstanding. 

This Untruth occurred just a few weeks ago in the Federal Courtroom of Judge Terrance Boyle.

Not only are there MANY outstanding removal request there is and has been an ongoing TAKE Permit Request, as outlined below.

Pete -

Recently Mr Ferebee requested to have you renew his previously issued / expired lethal take permit.  Mr. Benjamin you emailed Mr. Ferebee recently and stated he would need to illustrate that Red Wolves were present on his private land and specifically advised him to provide a photo of such then you would be able to provide the requested take permit.  This is clearly outlined in the below document.

This shall serve to document one of countless times Mr. Ferebee has provided factual proof of Red Wolf being present when in fact USFWS stated there are no wolves on his private land over a three year period.

Mr Ferebee has exhaustively documented his efforts to personally finance / return the trapped Red Wolves and illegally sterilized coyote placeholders to the USFWS unharmed.   

Under the ESA 10 j rule USFWS is bound to deliver the requested lethal take permit after these specific steps have run their course, today Mr Ferebee finds himself at this very point, subsequent to USFWS's multiple well documented abandonment's of recapture by formally foreclosing its recapture attempts.

Please know, there is absolutely no legal standing to deny issuing the required "lethal" take permit to Mr. Ferebee, thereby granting him the legal authority to determine this canids final disposition. 

I have provided you the USFWS's own document to fully support your required action which the USFWS finds itself compelled to act on and accordance with.

I trust you will find this useful and will swiftly edit the date on Mr. Freebees previous two lethal take permits, promptly email him a copy where as he can legally determine the fate of the collared canid shown below. 

The USFWS should be highly embarrassed that a private landowner has made the USFWS the "Star" of his very own Western playing out right now in NC.

To be clear, USFWS has well documented installing 40 tracking collars on Coyotes, thus nothing is legally preventing Mr. Ferebee from dispatching this collared canid should he identify it as a coyote.  Should this canid later be determined to be a Red Wolf the take would therefor be considered incidental to an otherwise legally afforded activity and USFWS is unable to purse charges given its federal regulations.

As if that weren't enough, hybrids are not and have never been protected under the ESA so anyone can therefor lethally take a hybrid canid that happened to be invented in a Tacoma Washington $33M "Wolf Mill" and illegally released in NC, contrary to the ESA and well beyond its home range.

Pete, again given the below document and exhaustive documentation of abandonment and foreclosed removal efforts on Mr. Ferebee's private land its really clear now isn't it.

I'm not sure what these things eat other than Fawns, but Mr. Ferebee can not lawfully possess captive wildlife thus your swift execution of the above lethal take permit should be duly noted to ensure this canid is handled humanly while it's currently trapped awaiting a Federal bureaucracy to adhere to its own laws! 

Mr. Ferebee has fully complied with your request to provide proof of what may be a Red Wolf on his land (photo below).  There is NO denying USFWS has abandoned its recapture efforts, thus forcing USFWS to immediately grant this lethal take permit where as the final disposition of this Canid will be determined by the private landowner just as USFWS told us at the public steak-holder meetings back in 1986.

Any further delays by USFWS should be construed as an in-humane act.

Thanks for your response.
 
USFWS has never operated this program within its Federal rules.  If you had, this nonnative invasive "red wolf"  would not even be in our State to begin with and it certainly would not be on my farm.  You were to monitor this canine with the collar you strapped on its neck and return it to your flooded refuge when it was forced by your actions to swim off.  You should issue a life jacket to your "red wolves" next time if USFWS is going to flood their home.

My concern is for the animal also.  Only 2 of your last 15 releases are currently alive.  Your wolf population has now crashed due to your management actions and coyote hybridization. You have no more breeding pairs now than you had 27 years ago when you first released so called "red wolves" in our State.


Accordingly, this wolf has little chance of survival in the wild, especially since it has no place to live now that USFWS has flooded its "ideal" habitat and forced your "wolves" onto private land where they are not supposed to be.  At least 60 "red wolves" have now been shot on private land as you have violated your own Section 7 consult and not kept these wolves on your land as required in your rules and Section 7 consult.  If this is a wolf, save it and use it to boost your captive population which also has never reached its goal 30 years later, because your biologists robbed 120 wolves from the captive population without a section 7 consult to do so.

Really Pete, I am busy saving your wolves while USFWS management actions are what is killing them.  Can you not come to terms with this?

You can pick up your runaway canine at the dog pound. I will contact Tyrrell County Animal Control.

I expect my take permit to be issued.
I expect to be given the animal ID number.
If the animal is not a wolf, I want the animal returned to me. You can keep the collar.

Good morning Jett.  As you know, we operate in accordance with our rules which state that when an animal is removed from property where it is not wanted we are to release it as soon as possible back into the wild, unless there are health or behavioral issues that preclude release.  We will do everything we can within our rules to reduce the likelihood of it returning to your farm.

I'll be happy to share information with you about the animal and I've got your request for a take authorization letter, which I will begin to process Monday when I'm back in the office.

Right now I just need my staff to retrieve the animal so it can be safely dealt with.  It has already been in that kennel too long.  I've got a guy waiting to come get it.  Please let me know how you wish to accomplish the transfer.  Thanks,

Pete

Pete,

Thanks for the call.  At this point, I prefer to deal with you in writing only.
I'm sick and tired of playing foolish games with USFWS. If USFWS can not abide by their own Federal Rules, then end this illegal and failed program now.

Do I have a commitment from USFWS to not re-release this animal only to return to my land?
Will you give me the wolf ID number?
Will you renew my take permit?

Should I just call Tyrrell County Animal Control as I do not trust your agents on my farm ever again?

I hate to just let this animal loose, as it may get shot like 60 other "red wolves" have already been shot because USFWS flooded the "ideal" Federal habitat for their experimental wolf and then USFWS biologists refused to remove the fleeing wolves from private land as USFWS promised.
 
I am the one citizen who is trying to cooperate with USFWS and operate within the law, but USFWS needs to do their part or as Director Ashe has stated - future reintroduction efforts dependent upon private landowner support are doomed.

Jett

*Please note I have copied the NC Senate Ag Committee and the NC House Select Committee on Wildlife.  As I will demonstrate next week, the flooding issues and wolf issues in this part of our State are very interrelated with one entity to blame.

Pete,

Your final response to me regarding my request for renewal of my take permit was that USFWS does not have any wolves on my property.  I disagreed. You told me that in order to renew my take permit, I must first demonstrate or show proof that I have wolves on my property.  For the third year in a row, I have proven USFWS wrong.  Once again, USFWS has demonstrated they have no idea of where or how many wolves there are in our State. 

You told me a picture or a track would suffice as proof.  Attached are pictures of the large canine trapped on my farm yesterday along with a picture of a large track from one of the three very large canines currently using my farm. 

Also attached is my previous take permit documenting my cooperation with USFWS.  A picture of my flooded farm is attached documenting USFWS's unwillingness to cooperate with me and many other landowners in my area.

Please contact me today regarding where to mail my take permit.  The issuance of this permit is mandated by the USFWS Federal Rules for this nonessential experimental population of "red wolves".

I would like to turn this collared (looks like GPS collar) animal over to you alive please, if it is indeed what you define as your "red wolf".  I will want to be given your wolf ID number as well as written assurances that this animal will not be released, only to return back to my farm.  Policing and keeping up with your runaway dogs and flood waters is proving very costly and time consuming to me and many others in our State.

Sincerely,

Jett Ferebee

Pete,

I have an important meeting with many landowners in our area tonight regarding the USFWS Red Wolf Program and the USFWS Refuge water management plan. 

Many of us have been pumping your refuge water off of our crops for several days and nights now.  We are tired.  I do not even want to estimate our crop losses exacerbated by the USFWS's irresponsible water management on the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife refuge.

No wonder your wolves can not live on the refuge anymore.  USFWS has "pre-flooded" this land so that it can no longer absorb rainfall.  Short of USFWS inventing and selectively breeding an experimental wolf with gills and webbed feet, I do not think you will ever have wolves on your federal land.

It is important to me and this group of landowners to understand if my take permit will be renewed in light of the recent legal threats against USFWS from several non-landowner activist groups.  I would like an answer today please.

Sincerely,

Jett Ferebee

Mr. Miranda,

My authorization to take any remaining wolves on my private land expires September 19th, 2015.  At this time I still have wolves on my farm.  I am requesting that my take authorization be renewed.

Over the last 2 years, I have cooperated with USFWS and trapped and crated 25 canines of which all wolves were returned to USFWS at no cost to the Service.

I appreciate your consideration of my request to renew this permit.

Hi Jett,

I'll be working on the take authorization, but it could take awhile.  I'll let you know how that work progresses.  Regarding the last animal removed from your property: He is a wild-born 12-yr old male (11317).  He was pit tagged as a puppy and not encountered by us again until he showed up at your place (hence the lack of a collar).  He is not one of the animals removed from your property last year (or any other year for that matter).  Of the three wolves captured on your property last year 2 are dead and one was transferred to the captive program.

Pete,

I wonder how many more death threats my family will receive as result of my efforts to return your runaway and returning wolves to USFWS, while protecting myself from being charged with the "take" of a red wolf. 

I want to know today, when I can expect my take authorization.  I also want to know if the last uncollared animal I gave back to USFWS was indeed the collared wolf I returned to you last year.

I ask that you contact Ron Sutherland of The Wildlands Network and explain the history of my trapping efforts and tell him exactly how many collared and uncollared wolves I have returned to USFWS in the last three years.  Many uncollared animals I could have declared a coyote and killed but chose not to.  The wolves I caught could have been killed with my take permit, but I did not.  Instead, these animals were watered and fed while awaiting return.  Mr. Sutherland's lies have place my family in jeopardy.

By my counts, I have trapped on my farm and returned to USFWS over a third of the entire known population of Red Wolves.
 
I have no hate for the wolf at all.  I have an incredible disdain for the unlawful way this wolf program has been administered in our State.  Now, my family is in danger once again.  The Pitt County District Attorney filed charges regarding the last death threats.  I am very tired of being the one party operating within the law. 

I want my take permit and I want you to manage the wolf program on your Federal land as promised.  If USFWS can not operate this program within the law, then end the Wolf program.

Below are the libelous news releases put out by The Wildlands Network and The Center for Biological Diversity.

Hello Jett,

I hope the second half of your weekend was more relaxing than the first half.  As a follow-up, I am currently coordinating your request for a take authorization with the Regional Office.  In the meantime, if you are concerned about the potential presence of wolves on your property we  can authorize your trapper to continue work on your property under the authority of our State permit. 

We would only need to issue Mr. Rose a letter identifying him as a designee under our permit.  Let me know if you and Mr. Rose are interested in this course of action.

By the way, I haven't gotten a full report on the animal removed from your property last week but I can tell you it is a female wolf, wild-born in Hyde County in 2013.  The collar on her is our standard VHF variety.  We are currently holding her at Alligator River NWR.  I'll keep you posted regarding our plans for her.

Red Wolf Gunshot Mortality Plummets with the departure of the past USFWS Red Wolf Coordinator & Red Wolf Coalition Board Member...

This most recent Red Wolf Mortality Table provides additional support that FWS was inconsistent in its allocation of Red Wolf Mortality as documented by the Office of Inspector General.

Note, Program Staff proactively began to fully reconcile the historical mortality data and corrected inconsistent mortality allocation "Then" submitted the reconciled data to the OIG.

Ms. Dohner,

The responses below (2), given by Refuge Manager Howard Phillips and his Supervisor Mike Bryant suggest both lack sound judgement.

First, Mr. Bryant's solution to NC's Barrier Island "Bridge-Gate" is to remove the bridge and install a "High Speed Ferry".   

Really??  A High Speed Ferry??

(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20160714%2Fadac86567d431c15a0c097165078a042.jpg&hash=3157a067328f2c4e3e2b7e3abaa73709)

Today, in replying to Mr. Ferebee, Refuge Manager Howard Phillips refers to tomorrow's Scientist & Manager's as Experts.  How many of those Experts have and will continue to have a financial interest in Criminally Violating Section 9 of the ESA by Knowingly Flooding "Harming" the Critically Endangered, Experimental Non-Essential, Humanly Constructed and Selectively Bred Red Wolf?

Under Section 9 these alleged Criminal Actions by USFWS Staff, NGO partners and Contractors, Adversely Affected and Degraded the previously stated "Ideal Red Wolf Habitat" (Refuge Lands) by Re-Hydrating ($5M Flooding Project) it has impeded the Wolfs ability to 1) Feed 2) Breed and 3) Shelter.

This has resulted in irrefutable facts, documenting 60 of 64 Gunshot Wolves occurring on Dry Private Lands after being intentionally forced (Harmed) off the previously Ideal, now flooded Red Wolf Habitat (Upland Movement).

Most damming, the Refuge Manager's and others "Knowingly Knew" (Willful Intent) by forcing (flooding) the Red Wolf off the Refuge its Federal ESA protection would be significantly Downgraded, from enjoying "Fully Protected" status, while on previously dry "Ideal Habitat" to only having "Threatened" Status once crossing onto Dry Private Lands.  Thus, further intentionally Knowingly "Harming" the Endangered Red Wolf by eroding its federal protection.

What is undisputed is the "Intent" of Dr. Rabon, Mr. Phillips and his Supervisor Mr. Bryant's actions, the "Forced" Upland Movement of Species" (Endangered Red Wolf).  Additionally, they document the cost of the said "Intent" to total $5M.

These alleged Criminal actions are responsible for 94% of Red Wolf Gunshot Mortality.

To date the FWS continues to lie to the Voters of North Carolina all the while covering up its confirmed Criminal Gunshot Red Wolf Case dating back to September 2014, by quickly closing the case suggesting it died of "Heart-Worms" and not the Bullets found by the FWS own forensic lab report obtained via FOIA request.  Click Here https://vimeo.com/127949184

Now FWS turns a blind eye to its charge and duty of investigating and possibility bringing criminal charges against those responsible for the Mortality of 60 Flooded out and Subsequently Gunshot Red Wolves.

Perhaps one of Mr. Phillips "Experts or Managers" can explain to the "Simple-Folk" how a Endangered Red Wolf can "Feed, Breed and Shelter" under a solid "Sheet-Flow" of H2O?

It may be best for Mr. Bryant to utilize his suggested High Speed Ferry "Solution" to load the remaining Red Wolf Hybrids up and run them back around to the Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma, Washington given that's the ONLY Portion of their Range they can be Protected.

Under the USFWS own Published "Significant Portion of Range" (SPR) Policy, today's "Contemporary" (Leonard et al. 2005) Red Wolves have by definition NO Wild "Range".  This is further supported by the USFWS formally designating the "Historic" (Leonard et al. 2005) Red Wolf Extinct in the Wild.

Based on the best Scientific and Commercially available information, today's post 1977 Red Wolf, is NOT threatened by extinction and it shows no signs of becoming at risk or Endangered in the formidable future, throughout all or even a portion of its SPR, the Zoo.

Today's "Contemporary" Red Wolf "Range" is geographically limited both "Historically" and "Contemporarily" to its undisputed Geographical Zoo Origin.   The USFWS policy clearly defines a "Significant Portion of Range" (SPR) as the Point Defiance Zoo, located in Tacoma, Washington.  Home of the "First" Contemporary Red Wolf Litter (May 3, 1977) resulting from Selective Breeding and Human Selection at the Vendor's artificial "Contemporary" Captive Wolf Mill Breeding Facility (Tacoma, WA).

Further, the intent of Congress in passing the ESA back in "1973" was to ensure Delisting, once a Species was no longer in danger of extinction through all or a portion of its Significant Portion of its Range (SPR), thus by definition and application of its own published policy the Service must therefor "Delist" the Red Wolf as NO threats of extinction or endangerment are present, or are known to exist in the Zoo.

In the most simple terms, it's humanly impossible to extend "1973" endangered protective status to an animal that never even existed until 1977...

As you are aware the published SPR clearly states the USFWS is "Unable" to list a Species (Red Wolf) as Endangered or Threatened where it "No Longer Exist". 

Meaning, the Service only has authority to list the Red Wolf, Mexican Wolf, California Condor and Ferret as Endangered or Threatened within the "Captive Environment"... 

After-all, it's USFWS whom officially declared the "Historic" (Leonard el at. 2005) Red Wolf "Extinct" throughout its Wild range.

Ms. Dohner, I take the above allegations very seriously.  That being said, please provide your intentions of taking formal corrective actions and how you and the USFWS anticipate facilitating an credible arm's length investigation of these alleged acts, both Section 9 Flooding Violations & the ongoing Cover-Up of the Forensic Crime Labs "Confirmed" Gunshot Red Wolf that died of Heart-worms and subsequently closed?

Is it now permissible to shoot a Bald Eagle if it happens to die of "Heart-Worms" shortly after "Retracting" an "Incidental Take" Confession?

I'm also interested in confirming that currently NO Endangered Protection exist anywhere in the Wild relating to the Endangered "Captive Red Wolf" Population, making the admitted act of illegally removing 120 wolves from a Captive Protected Environment very, very significant considering USFWS was only authorized to remove and release 12...

I do need to get confirmation the Wild Population of Contemporary Red Wolves do not and have not had any ESA protection since 2014, as we've been hold-in off on Stump-In... On account of the Wolves.

I'm not sure how a Selectively Bred, Humanly Constructed, Non-Essential Contemporary Red Wolf reacts to "Dynamite" or if y'all had the Zoo "Breed" all the Skidish'ness out of them, nevertheless, we certainly wish to operate within the law and wouldn't want any farming operations to be construed as Unlawful "Harassment" or "Harm" under the ESA Take Provision.

The biggest problem were anticipating is locating some "Water-Proof" Dynamite... Especially for all the stumps that border the Refuge. 

Perhaps USFWS could study that...

Mr. Ferebee,
The technical workshop we have scheduled for tomorrow was set up to obtain information from subject matter experts in pocosin hydrology and ecology (including invitees from NRCS, Duke University, The Nature Conservancy, Kris Bass, and others) to help inform Refuge planning efforts, especially related to long term monitoring and data collection.  Accordingly, tomorrow's workshop is limited to getting feedback from scientists and managers to provide the foundation for Refuge water management planning.  The Service intends to share the expert information with all interested stakeholders and the public moving forward; this is simply an initial step in the process. We have had, and will continue to have, meetings with adjacent landowners regarding water management on the Refuge and any specific concerns. 

Rebecca Harrison has taken a new position with the Service - she is now the Wildlife Biologist at Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge. Alligator River, Pocosin Lakes, and other refuges are in the same complex of refuges and Rebecca Harrison will provide support for the planning in her new capacity.

I hope this information is helpful.

Howard,

Over the last several months you, as USFWS Refuge Manager for the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge, have said repeatedly to the NCGA Agriculture and Forestry Awareness Study Commission that you wanted and valued the input from the private landowners surrounding "your" refuge.  The purpose was to insure the adjoining landowner's concerns about their land being flooded by your "hydrology restoration efforts" would be heard and addressed.

Accordingly, I was dismayed to learn of your Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge Hydrology Restoration Workshop to be held tomorrow in the absence of any concerned private landowners and adjoining farmers.  I understand the NRCS, USFWS red wolf biologists, Duke University Wetlands Center, The Nature Conservancy, Kris Bass Engineering and others have been asked to attend this "workshop".  Why were adjoining farmers whose crops are being flooded by your water management practices not offered a seat at the table for this "workshop"?

USFWS promising the public one thing and then doing just the opposite seems to be the standard operating procedure for your organization.

By the way, I think Rebecca Harrison with the USFWS red wolf program will be there.  I have attached two refuge maps (before and after your flooding) that show there are no longer any red wolves residing on the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge as a result of your "hydrology restoration efforts".  Remember, USFWS introduced red wolves on PLNWR because it was the "ideal habitat for the red wolf".  There seems to be a major disconnect here.  Are there some ESA Section 7 issues here that you are sweeping under the rug as you have also done with concerns of NC citizens, whose private lands and agricultural crops are being flooded and destroyed?

Sincerely,

Subject: "Massive loss of historic and geographic genetic (red wolf) data" - Dr. David Rabon, Dr. Joey Hinton and Michael Chamberlin (2013)


Mr. Williams -

Questions -

1) Massive Loss of Genetic Data - I'm very much interested in WMI's statement in speaking to what has been a "Massive Loss of Historic and Geographic Data" as outlined below.  I would ask you or your staff to provide some light on this and if WMI was aware of it and if so did WMI look into pinpointing the circumstances around the massive data loss of Historic Red Wolf Genetic Data.  I have read all 171 pages of the Final WMI Comprehensive Review Document numerous times and unfortunately the Final Edition makes no mention of a 'Massive Loss of Historic and Geographic Data". 

I trust all will find the above request reasonable in nature as certainly without question it has significant merits and should be researched and appropriately addressed given the size, scope, and expense that you and your staff put into assembling this much needed review.

2) Historic Range - I personally contacted Ron Nowak via email and inquired about any and all Sound Science and Commercially available information & documentation used to include North Carolina within the Red Wolves Historic Range?   

He replied in summary, No conclusive evidence exist to scientifically support to everyones satisfaction that the Red Wolf was ever native to North Carolina.  Rather it was on an assumed basis…

Did WMI as part of its Comprehensive Review Process interview Mr. Nowak and if so given Mr. Nowak's 1979 Historic Range Map was the exact map that was utilized to include North Carolina as part of the Historic Range one would assume this is very much center to the entire review.  Seeing the Service lacks Sound Scientific and or Commercially available evidence to Introduce Contemporary Red Wolves into North Carolina this too is a keystone review issue given Mr. Nowaks recent admission. 

3) Hybrid Admission - Additionally Mr. Nowak has freely stated: There are NO Red Wolves they are all Hybrids; part Coyote and part Gray Wolf…  He does go on to state perhaps the populations could be preserved as a National Monument. Meaning he understands Contemporary Hybrid Red Wolves can not be Preserved under the ESA, thus he suggest a Monument. 

What is WMI's formal position on the Hybrid Red Wolf with relation to the Dusky Seaside Sparrow and the Services more recent Refusal to designate a Northeast DPS of gray wolves serves as a mighty strong indicator of how the Service continues to interoperate Congresses intent with dealing with Hybrids. 

Thus given the long standing president of allowing the Dusky Sparrow to go extinct and now the denying the Northeast gray wolf protective DPS status clearly the agency beliefs run parallel with those of Congress, in the fact that Wolf-Coyote Hybrids DO NOT warrant protection. 

If further support is needed you will recall the Service attempted to creatively transform a Hybrid into an Intergrade via its own 1996 Policy.  Rightfully so that policy was published yet never finalized, causing the Service to formally withdraw it in February of 2001. 

4) - Manipulating and or Destroying Scientific Data - The Service has published guidelines that deal with reporting requirements relative to missing and manipulated scientific data. It spells out the consequences should it be determined that an intentional effort was made to destroy historic scientific documents.  I am most interested in receiving WMI's findings.


Former USFWS Red Wolf Coordinator, Dr. David Rabon co-authored a study with Dr. Joey Hinton and Michael Chamberlin titled "Red Wolf (Canis rufus) Recovery: A Review with Suggestions for Future Research".  Allow me to bring section 2, page 726 to the attention of the Office of Solicitor Generals Investigation.  Dr. Rabon and his coauthors state:

2. Red Wolf Taxonomy

Currently, scientist find themselves in a contentious debate regarding the taxonomy of New World wolves and its implications on the evolution, ecology, and conservation of Canis species in Eastern North America [20].  Theorigin of the red wolf is central to this debate [1,21-23].  Although scientific synthesis has led to new insights into the evolution and ecology of New World wolves, massive loss of historic and geographic genetic data and recent genetic introgression by coyotes continues to hinder consensus on red wolf origin [20}  Despite significant voids in data to adequately characterize the historic red wolf populations in the Southeast, limited and anecdotal data does exist to indicate the existence of a large canid in the Southeastern United States.


Thank you and I will look forward to your response…

Subject: Formal Riser Board Removal Request -

Mr. Viker,

On October 28, 2008 the USFWS Assistant Refuge Manager stated the level of the water held by the water control structures will be determined by you (Private Landowner) and the Refuge.

Mr. Kitts goes on to state, the adjoining Private Landowners have "Equal" say in the decision making of the water levels.

Please advise what fax number the Private Landowners are to direct their "Formal" Riser Board Removal Request letters.

Dear USFWS,

Thank you for your inquiry regarding accessing our property to remove your Illegally Released Critically Endangered, Experimental Non-Essential, Selectively Bred, Humanly Constructed, Non-Native and Invasive "Contemporary" Red Wolf. 

We may be able to help you out with this matter.

We have divided our 1022.26 acres into 175 equal survey units with a draw tag for each unit. Application fees are only $8.00 per unit after you purchase the required “Private Land Unit Access Permit” ($120.00 resident / $180.00 Non-Resident).

You will also need to obtain a “Private Land Unit” parking permit ($10.00 per vehicle). You will also need an “Invasive Species” stamp ($15.00 for the first vehicle and $5.00 for each add’l vehicle) You will also want to register at the Check Station to have your vehicle inspected for non-native plant and or animal life prior to entering our property.  This is to protect our state's native plant and wildlife from invasive threats.  There is also a Day Use fee, $5.00 per vehicle.

If you are successful in the Draw you will be notified two weeks in advance so you can make necessary plans and purchase your “Conservation Habitat” stamp. ($18.00 Resident / $140.00 Non-Resident). Survey units open between 8am and 3pm but you cannot commence Trapping until 9am and must cease all survey activity by 1pm.

We only allow humane Trapping Gear as published in our Private Land Registry.  Gear is limited to a net with a 2″ diameter made of 100% organic cotton netting with no longer than an 18″ handle, non-weighted and no deeper than 6′ from net frame to bottom of net. Handles can only be made of BPA-free plastics or wooden handles. After 1pm you can use a net with a 3″ diameter if you purchase the “Invasive Trapping Endorsement” ($75.00 Resident / $250 Non-Resident).

Any Contemporary Wolves captured that are released will need to be released with an approved release device back into their Native Zoo environment unharmed, identified as their Historic Range.

As of June 1, we are offering draw tags for our “Premium Trapping” units and application is again only $8.00 per application.

However, all fees can be waived if you can verify “Native Indian Tribal rights and status.

You will also need to provide evidence of successful completion of “Non-Native Trapping and You” comprehensive course on Hybrid Red Wolf identification, safe handling practices, and self-defense strategies for Wolf attacks. This course is offered online through an accredited program for a nominal fee of $750.00, through one of our NGO Partners.

Please let us know if we can be of assistance to you. Otherwise, we decline access to our property but appreciate the opportunity to respond to your request to access our property, subsequent to our Red Wolf Removal Request.

As you are aware, the USFWS is legally bound to remove any and all Red Wolves from Private Lands upon request.  Should you decide to not purchase the above permits to ensure you are in compliance with the Private Land published rules and regulations, we shall interpret your actions as documentation of the USFWS formally Abandoning and Foreclosing its Red Wolf removal efforts.

We, shall anticipate the USFWS issuance of the required Lethal Take Permit authorizing me and or my agent(s) to lethally Shoot an Illegally Released, Critically Endangered, Experimental Non-Essential, Selectively Bred, Humanly Constructed, Non-Native and Invasive "Contemporary" Red Wolf. 

Sincerely,

More on the Animal Welfare Institute and their far leftist extreme ideology!

Tara Zuardo argues that the future of the former Ozarks inhabitant has never been more dire. Last summer, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced a full review of its red wolf program. It said it was not terminating its recovery effort, but it did suspend reintroduction of red wolves into the wild while scientists gathered additional information. The decision still has not been announced but could come later this year.

Zuardo is an attorney for the Animal Welfare Institute, one of seven conservation groups arguing that because of pressure from politicians and some private landowners in the recovery area, that the federal agency is “deliberately abandoning the red wolf program.”

Let's see what could ESA possibly stand for?  All the past 40+ years and we've been thinking it meant Endangered Species Act when in reality it really stood for Engineered Species Act.  Remember Nowak's, if the red wolf didn' exist we'd have to invent one.  Well, it didn't exist and they did invent one.

Or perhaps it should stand for Environmental Stealing Act which is what a lot of the NGO's have been using.

What about the number of wolves that have successfully bred and produced litters yet unidentified due to occurring on private lands where USFWS has no access to inventory active dens?

What about the number of wolves introduced into the wild via pup fostering or by traditional release, and "ARE NOT INCLUDED" in the official known WILD Population?

What about the 210+ Red Wolves that are located in captivity?

What about explaining to the public the wild population is designated by USFWS as "Non-Essential" to the Species Survival.

For the facts listed above, the Center for Biological Welfare should be ashamed for not being truthful with their trusting donors by stating only 45 Wolves exist!

Another USFWS Wolf Program Coordinator Booted for what is best defined as Scientific Fraud!

Followers will see there is quite a difference in how North Carolina handles the Illegally Released Red Wolves and how New Mexico handles many of the same fraudulent activity stemming from rogue employees of USFWS!

New Mexico steps up & Sues USFWS!  NC Attorney General Roy Cooper will NOT stand up for the landowners he says he serves! 

Next while Congressman Walter Jones remains MIA on the largest wildlife fraud in the history of the United States, New Mexico Congressman Steve Pearce absolutely Rips USFWS!


Via Outdoor Wire

A report released this week confirms what residents in the Mexican Gray Wolf Recovery area have been saying all along – the program has been mismanaged, and that federal employees overseeing the reintroductions manipulated scientific data and lied about DNA samples being tested.

The Department of the Interior's Office of the Inspector General (IG) received requests from county officials in Catron County, N.M. in 2008, and from Rep. Steve Pearce in 2014, to investigate several allegations. Pearce represents residents in the Mexican Gray Wolf Recovery Program (NMGWRP).

The reintroductions began in the 1990s, and ranchers and environmentalists have both contended the program has been mismanaged. The wolves number less than 100 in the wild.

In 2015 the New Mexico Game and Fish Department refused to grant a permit to release any more wolves into the wild, until the federal agency can produce an updated recovery plan (the last update was conducted in the 1990s), then filed a lawsuit after the feds released two pups in Catron County without the permit.

Arizona is also in court over the expansion of the recovery area there. The Center for Biological Diversity has also filed litigation to force the agency to produce a recovery plan.

Ranchers in the recovery area, who have complained for decades about mismanagement, have seen their livelihoods threatened and in some cases destroyed, and feel they have finally been vindicated.

"Years of documentation has finally vindicated the ranchers and those who made it possible for this report to come out," said Laura Schneberger, a rancher in the recovery area. "Finally we see that we are not the only ones who have seen through the agency's ethical problems."



ALLEGATIONS

There were several allegations that were substantiated by the IG report, including a finding that ranchers have not been adequately reimbursed for livestock losses.

Among the more serious allegations, the IG's report confirmed an agency employee falsified the location of multiple wolf kills, allowing wolves to further kill livestock and remain in close proximity to humans.

The former IFT coordinator, Elizabeth Jozwiak, wildlife biologist for the program, "Acknowledged that she gave genetically valuable wolves more care, allowed their nuisance behavior to continue, and provided them more opportunities to breed," reads the report. This happened in violation of the agency's "three-strikes" rule, which required repeat offending wolves to continue killing livestock.

"Jozwiak was simply transferred to rule change and recovery planning for Mexican wolves. How is that ethical," said Schneberger. "Will she use her own unscientific, incomplete data to implement recovery planning? Did she already use fake data to determine less livestock harm and insert it into the 2015 rule change?"


The current IFT coordinator admitted that in any situation where several wolves could have been individually responsible, IFT would assign the strike to the least genetically important wolf.

"They claim they have fixed the problem by reassigning one person," said Pearce. "Their problems are much bigger than one employee and extend to the highest levels of the agency. Those at the top levels at FWS tolerated a culture of lies, falsification, mismanagement, and manipulation of scientific data, ultimately at the cost of livelihoods and the public trust. This mismanagement has caused economic harm to the state, county, and individuals."

In December 2006, after the collection of blood and tissue samples from two feral dogs killed by a local rancher, the FWS was supposed to have tested the samples to determine if they were a wolf/dog hybrid.

A MGWRP biologist agreed to send the samples to the FWS lab for testing, but in 2009, the current IFT coordinator told local officials he had no record of the samples being tested and could not locate them. He told the county employee that they had been lost.

"When the IG requested information from the FWS lab on all MGWRP-submitted DNA samples in 2007, a lab employee informed us that MGWRP had submitted only one sample that year. Collected on December 6, 2007, it was unrelated to the wolf/dog hybrid DNA sample," read the IG report.

A few years ago, a Catron County rancher was bitten by what was later confirmed by the FWS as a wolf/dog hybrid.


"Unfortunately Jozwiak's transfer has not slowed or even mitigated the enormous number of livestock kills and human interactions seen in Catron County, those just keep occurring,"said Schneberger. "Just a year ago one had to finally be shot, for several nuisance behaviors, and three separate human interactions, two involving children. One child on horseback was chased by the animal, and one small boy had a wolf in his yard while he was feeding pets.

"It took far too long for FWS to decide to act and this wolf came very close to hurting people," she said.

Red Wolf Gunshot Mortality Plummets with the departure of the past USFWS Red Wolf Coordinator & Red Wolf Coalition Board Member...

This most recent Red Wolf Mortality Table provides additional support that FWS was inconsistent in its allocation of Red Wolf Mortality as documented by the Office of Inspector General.

Note, Program Staff proactively began to fully reconcile the historical mortality data and corrected inconsistent mortality allocation "Then" submitted the reconciled data to the OIG.

Guilty as Alleged, why else would the current Red Wolf Recovery Staff "Reconcile" all mortality data?

Does the above "Data Manipulation" seem to me more like a "Fraud" or "The Expected SOP" within the USFWS as the OIG just confirmed, it's not isolated to just North Carolina!

More problems for Refuge Managers Mike Bryant & Howard Phillips...

Given Refuge staff allowed the Adaptive release of 252 Coyotes, Hybrids and Wolves within 10.4 miles of Endangered Sea Turtle / Plover Nesting Habitat with no Section 7 Consultation is of great significance.

Section 7 interagency consultations are mandated under federal guidelines to measure (risk assessment)  any proposed change in management action(s) and what implications it may have on listed species.

Citizens Science has been very critical of Refuge staff, by staff turning a blind eye to this federally mandated requirement.  USFWS has consistently requested more funding from congress yet this serves as yet one more example of the complete recklessness and lack of physical stewardship within the USFWS and specifically PLNWR & ARNWR.

The General Accounting Office (GAO) issued a scathing report on this very issue, however it seems FWS Refuge Staff again turned a blind eye and proceeded hand in hand with their NGO partners to hoe their own road with no regards to protecting the endangered Turtles / Plovers nest and Red Wolves it flooded of its previous ideal Habitat.

Read the GAO findings below.

Subject: UPDATE - Gunshot Red Wolf -  Cover-Up

Director Ashe -

Tabitha Viner, DVM DACVP, Supervisory Veterinary Pathologist "Confirmed" multiple Gunshots when examining a Critically Endangered Red Wolf #11458M, raising the obvious question...

Is it not, highly illegal to "Shoot" an Endangered Species irregardless if gunshot is the Cause of Death?   

Do you not find odd and outside protocol for USFWS to quickly "Close" this  Highly Illegal case of Confirmed Gunshot to suppress the truth?

What is FWS hiding?  Who is FWS covering this up for? 

Certainly someone Simm's to know who shot this wolf...

What about the 210+ Red Wolves that are located in captivity?

What about explaining to the public the wild population is designated by USFWS as "Non-Essential" to the Species Survival.

For the facts listed above, the Center for Biological Welfare should be ashamed for not being truthful with their trusting donors by stating only 45 Wolves exist!


Is the Center of Biological Diversity back at their same old tactics??  Only 45 Wolves…  Really… 

In July, 2002, the Center for Biological Diversity published on its web site a News Advisory alleging that Jim Chilton, and Chilton Ranch & Cattle, were guilty of mismanaging the Montana Allotment. Attached to the News Advisory were 2 Appendices which contained photos allegedly showing damage to the environment caused by the Chilton’s cattle. The Center subsequently issued a second separate press release describing the pictures as showing the "devastation" caused by cattle. This press release was reprinted in a local paper.

The News Advisory remained published on the Center’s web site AFTER the Center had abandoned its administrative appeal with the Forest Service. Moreover, the News Advisory contained outright falsehoods and the photos contained in the Appendices were false and misleading.  At least four of the photos were not even taken on the Montana Allotment, while others showed a mining site, a deer camp, and, worse, the site of an annual May Day festival where hundreds of people, including the Center's photographer, had recently camped. There was a long history of attacks by the Center against the Chiltons, including prior lawsuits, and a complaint to the Forest Service that had been shown to be false.

Mr. Chilton’s attorney notified the Center as to the libelous nature of the News Advisory and accompanying photos and informed the Center of the need to remove the defamatory and untrue material. The Center ignored the demand, essentially forcing Mr. Chilton to file a lawsuit to protect his name.

After a lengthy trial in January, 2005, the jury returned a verdict stating that the Center lied in its News Advisory as well as in several of the photos. The jury awarded Judgment in favor of Mr. Chilton and Chilton Ranch, $100,000 in actual damages and $500,000 in punitive damages. The Trial Judge refused to set aside the verdict but instead upheld it. An examination of the photos published by the Center  with photos of the surrounding area, which were presented at trial, show why the jury found in favor of Chilton and against the Center for Biological Diversity.

On June 30, 2005, the Center filed a Notice of Appeal asking the Arizona Court of Appeals to review the jury's verdict. On December 6, 2006, the Arizona Court of Appeals, Division 2, issued an opinion upholding the jury’s verdict and award. At oral argument on the appeal, the 3 appellate judges saw some of the same photos (including photo 18) that were presented to the jury. The opinion fully upheld not only the monetary award, but also the arguments that were presented by the Chilton Ranch and Jim Chilton.

In 2007, the Arizona Supreme Court rejected the Center for Biological Diversity’s appeal of the jury’s decision and award and their appeal of the decision of the Arizona Court of Appeals which had supported the jury’s finding.

In the appeals process, Amicus briefs were filed by environmental corporations that advocated for the Center for Biological Diversity’s right to lie, defame, misrepresent and practice a reckless disregard for the truth as long as their intentions were to advance their “environmental” agenda. Big names that chimed in with Amicus briefs to OK the Center’s defamatory actions were The Sierra Club, Forest Guardians, Arizona Wildlife Federation and the Maricopa Audubon Society.

Does anyone really believe the Center of Biological Diversity when they state only 45 Red Wolves Remain?

Here's a Gunshot Red Wolf dated 1992 that occurred in Halifax County, (Scotland Neck) likely mistaken as a Coyote. 

I might add, under the current 1995 USFWS Rules, NO Reporting is required beyond the 5 County Area.

Here we go again, Private Landowners $tuck playing babysitter to USFWS runaway Hybrid Red Wolves!

How much does Director Dan Ashe think private landowners are willing to pay to keep trapping the same hybrid wolves and return them, before they start to resemble coyotes?? 

At least USFWS actually "Owns" this batch Hybrid Wolves!

Citizens Science and its volunteers have brought forward and exposed the Illegal, "Flooding" Actions that are occurring on Refuge lands while supported and "LOBBIED" by Refuge STAFF!

Once this Illegal Flooding was exposed, one vocal Ph D. has mysteriously remained silent and vacated the discussion that has Adversely Effected and Illegally Degraded (HARM'ed) previously stated "Ideal Red Wolf Habitat"!

What kind of "Wetlands Partner" would deliberately "Harm" Ideal Habitat for such a Critically Endangered Species??

It's mighty hard to build "Habitat Connectivity" when your deliberately supporting the flooding of it... 

Of course unless your mission is connecting "Ideal Habitat" under a "Sheet Flow" of H2O!

It is pretty obvious the intent of flooding the refuge is to make it impossible for privately owned farms surrounding the refuge to be profitable.  That will drive the price down and USFWS will come in and offer to buy the no longer viable farms for a pittance of their actual value.  It is an alternative land grab pure and simple.  Once it became apparent that the red wolf was no longer the means to get control of these private farms this is their next best option for a land grab.

In a meeting this week with Congressional Staff, your exact comments were affirmed by most every land owner present.

This needs to be fully investigated and look at recent offers from USFWS and other NGO's who played an active role in degrading private lands.

This suggest a text book violation of the Federal R.I.C.O. Act. 

Look no further that the landmark settlement paid by the Animal Welfare Institute to Kenneth Feld when he refused to back down and took on the HSUS, AWI and others by filing a civil complaint accusing the plaintiffs of Racketeering by paying their star witness to testify in Feld's Circus Elephant case.

Mr. Feld is to be commended for busting up these rogue NGO's and their underground network of organized crime.

Your comments seem to be well supported by many other landowners within the community.

Additionally, you may find this of interest, the  below is from the Hydrology Benefits "Sales" Brochure.

I like that USFWS documents how poor these counties are and how public lands account for nearly 1/2 of the land mass, meaning they pay NO county property tax.

Yet they are still attempting to purchase additional lands.

How to keep Coyotes out of your backyard



Blame it on Wile E. Coyote. Or the fact that like kudzu, Canis latranse is considered to be an invasive species. (In other words, not from around here.)

Whatever the basis, coyotes have built a pretty solid reputation in North Carolina – and it’s largely negative.

“There is some psychology to it, cultural suppositions around coyotes as being somehow dangerous,” said Jessie Birckhead, extension biologist for the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission. “And don’t forget Wile E. Coyote. He was pretty tricky.”

Despite the reputation, coyotes are mostly harmless, Birckhead said.

“They are part of our natural environment now,” she said. “There is no cause for alarm.”

Many who garden for wildlife have never seen a coyote on our property, but sooner or later, that is likely to change. More than 1,000 coyotes are roaming within or near the borders of Wake County, although specific numbers are difficult to come by since coyotes are shy, nocturnal animals that stay out of sight much of the time.

Coyote adults may weigh between 25 and 40 pounds – larger than native foxes, which top out at about 15 pounds, and slightly smaller than the native red wolf, which now exists in nature only in five Eastern North Carolina counties.

Red wolves – like cougars and other large predators – once proliferated in our region as the top canid predator, but they were effectively shut out of their natural habitats as land was cleared for development and livestock farmers became aggressive about eliminating potential threats to their income. With wolf and cougar populations more or less eliminated, coyotes have enjoyed a predatorial dominance in North Carolina for many years.

Coyotes today perform many of the same ecological functions as the wolf. They keep mice, squirrels and other small mammal populations in check. They also can help cull deer from overpopulated regions. But they also pose a threat to other small animals such as chickens, small goats or sheep – and, yes, the occasional free-roaming small pet such as a dog or cat.

To address these concerns, Birckhead has instituted a series of coyote conflict management workshops this summer. The next one is scheduled for 5:45 p.m. Aug. 2 at the Iredell County Extension Center in Statesville, about a 2 1/2-hour drive west of Raleigh.

The workshops were created to help rural residents understand the ramifications – legal and otherwise – of confronting coyotes on their farms or land. But much of the advice is also relevant to urban and suburban landowners.

“We advocate anything you can do to discourage them from coming into your yard,” Birckhead said. “That can include never leaving pet food outside, as well as keeping pets secure and on leashes. Also, it’s best to prevent coyotes from finding places on your property for their dens. Close off the crawl space under your deck and eliminate brush piles in the yard.”

Wildlife gardeners may find this advice to be a greater-than-average challenge. Small mammals, such as rabbits, voles and mice, are among the creatures inhabiting a wildlife garden, along with fruits and berries, which the omnivorous coyote also enjoys.

“Coyotes are fantastic at adapting to live in human-dominated landscapes,” Birckhead said. “They are able to squeeze out an existence living in backyards and greenways, city and state parks. They are very savvy, like gray foxes and red foxes.

These wildlife species have adapted to live where humans are. Most in our area have existed around people their whole lives.”

Coexisting with a broad spectrum of animals means looking beyond their reputation and understanding the role that each plays in the circle of life.

When people act irresponsibly, leaving out food, even bird food, that might tempt a hungry predator, harm can come to animals such as coyotes, who are only doing what nature tells them to do to survive.

“It leads to these interactions where the fault is placed on the animal,” Birckhead said. “When you think about these things, in extreme cases, like black bears, it can lead to tough decisions. The best thing you can do for wildlife is not to unintentionally feed them. Good preventative work keeps conflict form happening in the first place.”

It seems the "Deliberate" Sheet-Flow Flooding of Ideal Red Wolf Habitat was the the Brainchild of Duke University Wetlands in. Partnership with the Nature Conservancy.

The more you peal this flooded onion back its really about Carbon Credits & Offsets or shall I say the intent.

We are unable to find any official document that states the Refuges Purpose is to be used to "Slow" Global Warming through Carbon Credits.

What we were able to locate is the below document that states the Red Wolf Habitat is a number one priority and purpose of Pocosin Lakes NWR.

Dear friends,

Just wanted to share the news, in case you missed it, that half a million people signed a petition asking the US Fish and Wildlife Service to save the wild red wolf recovery program in North Carolina. The petition was delivered last week to FWS and Department of Interior leaders. Here are some of the media articles covering the story:

http://www.joplinglobe.com/news/lifestyles/facing-fate/article_86e2ce1f-d4c8-5b82-b8e3-f6a40b8ad0d2.html

We continue to add more images to the website where we've been posting all of the animal photos from our large set of 22 wildlife cameras in the red wolf recovery area in eastern NC. I've attached one of many new favorites to this email. I think the image speaks for itself in terms of helping people evaluate the claims that have been made about red wolves and coyotes causing a "wildlife disaster" in North Carolina, but you can see plenty more at:

Also, you may be interested in these photos from another set of 20+ wildlife cameras along the Northeast Cape Fear River near Wilmington, NC - outside of the red wolf recovery area, but in a fertile bottomland swamp habitat with plenty of coyotes in residence. See for yourself if you can spot the wildlife disaster:

Dear friends,

I know you've been hearing a lot from some of the leaders of the movement to end the red wolf recovery program in eastern NC. Please allow me to point out to you a few of the more glaringly inconsistent and nonsensical parts of their claims:

(**note that "you" in all cases refers to the anti-wolf agitators, as this was originally a letter to them)

*****
Let's see, you post numerous pictures of coyotes and even possible wolves that you and your friends have shot and in some recent instances apparently tortured (see for example photo of dead coyotes with plastic bags duct-taped on their heads), but then go after animal rights groups for a management plan that mentions euthanizing coyotes to save red wolves.

You say the red wolf is nothing but a coyote, but then you say coyote-red wolf hybrids are some kind of super animal that destroys wildlife - wouldn't a coyote-coyote hybrid (by your logic) still just be a coyote?

You say there are way more wolves out there than anyone is letting on - and then in your next breath you proudly announce that the program is a huge failure and waste of taxpayer money as there are no wolves left to speak of.

You say you care deeply about the red wolf and want nothing but to protect the captive wolf population from coyotes (put the red wolves back in zoos where they'll be safe), and then you go and say the wolf is a human construct not worth the hair on its hide, and you announce plans for going after the funding of any Zoos that are holding red wolves.

You say the red wolf is nothing but a wolf-coyote hybrid, but then we point out that would mean gray wolves were native to NC, and you have no answer except moving on to some other nonsense.

You say that red wolves and coyotes have decimated wildlife, but anyone who has ever been to the Albemarle Peninsula knows it is a wildlife paradise, and the Wildlife Resources Commission (which currently hates wolves) publishes data showing the deer harvest has gone way UP since the wolves were reintroduced.

You sputter nonsense about deer harvest data not being relevant, but then you utterly fail to provide a single stick of data in support of your notion of "the greatest wildlife disaster in the history of NC"
(strong evidence to the contrary: www.flickr.com/photos/redwolfreality/albums)

You complain about the red wolf being a non-native exotic species, when at least one of you has a sign in your yard proudly proclaiming hunting guide services for pheasants and chukar (hint: not native!)

You agree the biologists in the 70's and 80's did the best they could to save the red wolf from hybridizing with coyotes, and used the best means at their disposal for sorting out the wolves from the wolf-coyote hybrids - and then you lambast them for humanly-constructing a "woof"

You own millions of dollars in real estate and fly around in some kind of private aircraft, but you complain loudly that any nonprofit employee making 50k/year must be a pimp for money, as if you never asked anyone for a dime in your business deals (maybe you didn't, maybe it was all inherited?)

You complain about death threats and abusive commenters, right after you post hundreds of nasty, derogatory, inflammatory, insulting, and completely off-base comments about a well-respected, kind-hearted woman who is doing her best to save wildlife and educate children about conservation.

You spout nonsense about hybridization being unnatural, when you yourself contain 4% Neanderthal DNA, and even worse, 8% of your genome is actually made of viruses that have inserted themselves into your DNA - and even worse, when there are as many bacterial cells in your body than there are human cells - and even worse, when the dominant land use in the red wolf recovery area is growing hybrid corn and soybeans that have been genetically engineered by humans. Apparently not one of you is actually a modern farmer.

You complain about wastes of taxpayer money, and then you send endless, endless FOIA requests to the federal government, which tie up FWS biologists for months and keep them from doing the jobs the rest of us citizens actually pay them to do.

You announce that a Duke student masters thesis was calling for a "red wolf superhighway" right to the Triangle, when really you just read her map backwards as you have no clue what she was talking about.

Possibly worst of all, you spend pages and pages harping on about your "heartworms" conspiracy, and then it comes out that you invented the whole thing and substituted a picture of a different wolf to try and sell your story.

I could go on, and I likely will, but hopefully anyone else reading this silly forum gets the point - you all have spared no scrap of intellectual honesty or consistency in your mean-spirited hobby-quest to destroy one of the world's most endangered species.

****end

Happy to answer any questions about the realities of the red wolf situation.

Laughin, Ron never fails to amuse.  It isn't hard to see that he is an anti-capitalist crusader.  Gosh, it must be a real thorn in his flesh that someone actually owns their own airplane and has acquired lots of land for their personal use including completely legal shooting preserves on "private land".

Trail cam pics now mean nothing without pics from a time before the wolf. And that sign about pheasant and chuckar is mine and if anyone finds one of my birds on their land they can kill it or call me and I will gladly come trap or kill it for you or you could just leave it there a day or two till the coyote or wolf find it. Most of the birds I release if not killed in one to two days are turned into a coyote or wolf turd. If my released animals go where they are not wanted I will remove them. Will USFWS?

Subject: Mann's Harbor - 7/25 Red Wolf GPS Location


Mr. Phillips,

Does it concern FWS under the oversight of Refuge Management over 250 Depredating Wolves, Coyotes and Hybrids we allowed to be trapped, sterilized and re-released, in-part so close to the Mann's Harbor Community? 

Additionally, the required Interagency Consultation was NOT preformed to assess depredation risk to Plover & Turtle nest.

Certainly deliberately releasing in excess of 250 Canids within 10.8 miles of critical nesting Habitat would be problematic to Defenders, Audubon Society & your friends over @ SELC.   

Perhaps, vehicular traffic is not to blame for nest depredations, rather its the Refuge Manager authorizing their release?

Below is the GPS location of this most recent "Illegally" Re-Released Red Wolf dated 7/25.  This Wolf seems to be frequenting residents trash searching for food inside the Mann's Harbor Community.

Mr. Phillips have you or FWS staff notified the residents of Mann's Harbor of this non-native predator, humanly constructed and illegally re-released that now is roaming their streets?  Are you aware of Goat Goat and the dangers this Wolf presents? http://myouterbankshome.com/gas-up-with-goat-goat/

You will recall author Deeland Beeland documented the frantic capture of a Red Wolf that was roaming around the Mann's Harbor Post Office (below) as it highlights the continued lies, deceit and cover-up by USFWS. 

I suppose you should alert the Community of Mann's Harbor so their residents can protect their pets & property and certainly Goat, Goat... don't you agree?   

I'd suggest penning a formal apology to the Dare County Pound for what refuge staff allowed to their borrowed animals!

Thx

P.S. - Might check this wolfs Scat for Endangered Sea-Turtle Eggs,  in case it trotted 10.8 miles east searching for Turtle & Plover nest...

Default Attention "Manns Harbor"
Attn: Manns Harbor

The one time the team tried to fire a dart on a "Recapture Collar" (in mid-October 1987), the system failed. The male South Lake wolf had taken to wandering until one night he arrived in  Manns Harbor. 


(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20160726%2F2587c8c161b562884b5dd8bb58ec27b7.jpg&hash=302f0d958276765be6b9de18f0f482fa)


DeBlieu wrote that the wolf trotted "between houses, sniffing at flower gardens." When he looted near the post office, a recapture team quickly gathered and fretted over his proximity to people. DeBlieu recorded that the team chased him through the evening as he ran in and out of people's yards. 

They tried several times to trigger the drug-filled darts on his collar but nothing happened. Luckily, they had air rifles and tranquilizer darts on hand. After several attempts, Parker finally got a clear shot and successfully darted the South Lake male at around 5:00 A.M. 

Later, it became evident that the 3M engineers may have failed to take into account the salty coastal air, which corroded some of the recapture collars' connections.

Rather than notify the public that the specialized collars were a bust, the Red Wolf Program measured the relative risk that the wolves posed and then decide to quietly let people forget the collars existed, according to (Redacted). (USFWS Biologist Red Wolf Recovery Program)

Subject: 3M Corp / Darting Collars / USFWS /  Wolves


Good afternoon,

We are completing an investigative piece on the USFWS efforts to restore the Endangered Red Wolf to portions of its alleged range. 

Through these efforts we became aware of 3M Corps involvement with the USFWS Wolf Introduction Program, as a Testing Partner.

3M's Engineers were contracted to develop a "Darting Collar" that was to be placed on each Wolf, where it could be remotely fired in case the Wolf became of concern or posed a public safety hazard.


(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20160727%2Fc4e4366e3fa2fb9f2cc24f3844a9c1e3.jpg&hash=ed36c1a86ee744affcd7168d11a543c7)


We would like to have a quote and or reply from 3M Corp addressing the published statements made by Ms. DeBlieu and Ms. Beeland regarding the use of  "Borrowed Mutts" from the Dare County Animal Shelter where as 3M Engineers tested these collars. 

Ms. Beeland states; "However, early test of the collars at Alligator River showed they had a very short signal range for the device that triggered the drug-filled darts.  On more than one occasion, the red wolf team borrowed mutts from the Dare County pound and fitted them with the test collars.  When the system worked, the dogs yelped, teetered drunkenly, and then collapsed after a few minutes."

Question's

Does 3M Corp regularly engage in collaborative efforts with NGO's, State and or Federal Agency's to recruit the use of "Mutts" from local County Animal Shelters? 

What precautions were taken by 3M Corp to mitigate the effects stated by Ms. Beeland?

Is 3M Corp aware of the final disposition of these "Borrowed Mutts"?

Ms. Beeland states this occurred on "Numerous Occasions", how many times did this testing occur and what was the total number of test "Mutts" borrowed?

Did 3M Corp have written authorization from the Dare County Animal Shelter for this type of Animal Testing?

Were any of these Mutts individuals pets that may have been relinquished to Dare Co. Animal Shelter for extenuating circumstances?

If yes, were the previous owners notified and made aware of this ongoing activity?

Did any "Borrowed Mutts" show signs of long term health issues and or expire during testing?

Thank you -

Also, just because you should know, included is disgusting information regarding experimentation with "borrowed mutts" from the Dare Co. pound.

I would like the permit information regarding capturing, heaving and feeding live game animals to penned wolves in whatever format is most cost effective for the Service.

I am a private citizen and will pay the costs up to $1,000 without the need for you to ask my permission.

If I missed something please let me know.

"To prepare for the release of the first pairs of red wolves, the biologist several months earlier had begun giving the wolves wild fare instead of dog food. Every few days, they pitched dead raccoons, possums, muskrats, rabbits, and road-killed deer over the pen fences".

"But it was uncertain if the captive-born wolves still had their wild chase instincts intact".

"To test this, the biologist experimented by HEAVING LIVE PREY into the pens, starting with raccoons and nutria and culminating in a deer".

"When the wolves successfully chased and killed their confined prey, the team had good reason to be hopeful".

"(Today the biologist say they would never repeat an experiment like this for fear of lawsuits from animal-rights groups, but it reflects the deep unknowns in the early days of the program".)

When a petition was created denouncing this double talking rhetoric by the Animal Welfare Institute, they admitted to supporting the Sterilization of Coyotes, yet purposely remained silent on how the USFWS traps these Coyotes.

This leads us to one of two conclusions, either the East Coast Coyotes are highly trained and perhaps some Coyote Whisper exist over at Project Coyote who then opens the front door to the Vet Clinic, howls real loud... Until the Coyotes come running in for their prescribed Sterilization.

Or the Animal Welfare Institute is FLAT LYING to its trusting Donors in their rebuttal below!

Carl Zimmer
JULY 27, 2016

The red wolf is protected by the Endangered Species Act, but a new study found that it is a mix of gray wolf and coyote DNA.
 
The first large study of North American wolf genomes has found that there is only one species on the continent: the gray wolf. Two other purported species, the Eastern wolf and the red wolf, are mixes of gray wolf and coyote DNA, the scientists behind the study concluded.

The finding, announced on Wednesday, highlights the shortcomings of laws intended to protect endangered species, as such laws lag far behind scientific research into the evolution of species.

The gray wolf and red wolf were listed as endangered in the lower 48 states under the Endangered Species Act in the 1970s and remain protected today, to the periodic consternation of ranchers and agricultural interests.

In 2013 the United States Fish and Wildlife Service recognized the Eastern wolf as a separate species, which led officials to recommend delisting the gray wolf. Conservationists won a lawsuit that forced the agency to abandon the plan.

The new finding sharpens a scientific question at the heart of that debate: How should the Endangered Species Act address threatened animals that are hybrids?

“What’s very exciting about this paper is that it’s using extremely powerful tools to address longstanding, challenging questions in conservation,” said Ryan Kovach, a research wildlife biologist at the United States Geological Survey who was not involved in the new study.

When Europeans arrived in North America, wolves roamed much of the continent. Farmers and ranchers almost entirely eradicated them from what is now the United States.

Over the past four decades, conservation efforts have helped a few wolf populations recover in the Rocky Mountains and around the Great Lakes. In 2015, the Fish and Wildlife Service estimated there were 5,505 wolves in the continental United States.

Those efforts were only possible thanks to the Endangered Species Act, established in 1973. The law led to a recovery program for a species known as the red wolf, or Canis rufus, believed to have originally lived in the Southeast. The last red wolves were removed from the wild in 1980, and captive-bred animals were released into the wild beginning in 1987.

The gray wolf, or Canis lupus, once ranged from the Rockies to New England. In 1978, the Fish and Wildlife Service declared it to be threatened in the lower 48 states.

In 2000, some scientists began to argue that the eastern population of gray wolves was in fact a separate species, which they called Canis lycaon. The Fish and Wildlife Service recognized that species in 2013, and officials argued that the gray wolf, now deemed to be limited to the western United States, was doing well enough to be taken off the list.

The new analysis, published in the journal Science Advances, paints a profoundly different portrait of the American wolf.

Bridgett M. vonHoldt of Princeton University and her colleagues sequenced the genomes of 12 gray wolves, six Eastern wolves, three red wolves and three coyotes, as well as the genomes of dogs and wolves from Asia.

Dr. vonHoldt and her colleagues found no evidence that red wolves or Eastern wolves belong to distinct lineages of their own. Instead, they seem to be populations of gray wolves, sharing many of the same genes.

What really sets Eastern wolves and red wolves apart, the researchers found, is a large amount of coyote DNA in their genomes.

The new study revealed that coyotes and North American wolves share a remarkably recent common ancestor. Scientists had previously estimated their ancestor lived a million years ago, but the new study put the figure at just 50,000 years ago.

“I could not have put money on it being so recent,” said Dr. vonHoldt.

That ancestor gave rise to two species — the predecessor of today’s gray wolves and that of today’s coyotes — somewhere in Eurasia. Dr. vonHoldt said that the two species then migrated into North America.

There, coyotes evolved into small predators that specialize in taking down smaller prey. Wolves took a different path, relying on their larger size and great speed to prey on moose and other big mammals.

As wolves were killed off in the East, coyotes spread from the Midwestern prairies over the past two centuries to take their place. Surviving wolves interbred with the coyotes, producing hybrid offspring.

Dr. vonHoldt and her colleagues found that the genomes of Eastern wolves that lived in Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario are half gray wolf and half coyote. Red wolves are even more mixed: Their genomes are 75 percent coyote and only 25 percent wolf.

Some wolf experts were startled by the finding and said it would require further support.

Linda Y. Rutledge, an expert on Eastern wolves, questioned whether the new study was sufficient to reject them as a separate species. Two Algonquin wolves that were part of the new study, she said, lived during a period when hybridization between coyotes and wolves was unusually common.

“They’re potentially not representative at all,” she said.

Despite her concerns, Dr. Rutledge joined Dr. vonHoldt’s lab as a research associate last year to participate in a new study on wolves, called the Canine Ancestry Project. The researchers are pooling their samples of DNA to study up to 100 wolves, coyotes and dogs from every state in the continental United States, as well as in Canadian provinces.

Robert K. Wayne, an evolutionary biologist at the University of California, Los Angeles, who helped conduct the new study, said the mixture of coyote and wolf DNA highlighted the need for a more sophisticated approach to conserving biological diversity.

Red and Eastern wolves still deserve protection despite their high level of coyote DNA, Dr. Wayne said, because they still carry the DNA of an endangered species: gray wolves.

With the proper management of the species’ habitat, he added, natural selection could help the wolf genes become more common again.

Yet the Endangered Species Act offers no guidance about what to do with hybrid animals.

“We put things in baskets, but it doesn’t work that way in nature,” said Dr. Wayne. “We need to have a hybrid policy.”

Even if they are not pure wolves, Dr. Rutledge said, hybrid animals still play a crucial role in eastern forests as top predators. “If it can kill deer in eastern landscapes, it’s worth saving,” she said.

Wolves are not the only animals challenging traditional taxonomy. Many related species are trading genes through hybridization, either naturally or because of human activity.

“It’s a fairly broad swath of diversity,” Dr. Kovach said. “And more concerning, it’s increasing.”

How many species of wolves live in America? A new study suggests there is just one.

The new work, published Wednesday in Science Advances, finds that the gray wolf is the one true wolf in the United States. The red wolf, which lives in the Southern U.S., and the eastern wolf, now found primarily in central Ontario, are in fact coyote and gray wolf hybrids, the authors say.

“We found that the red wolves are about 75% coyote ancestry, and the eastern wolf has more gray wolf ancestry, about 75%,” said Robert Wayne, an evolutionary biologist at UCLA and senior author on the study.

The distinction is not purely academic. Wayne said the findings could inform whether gray wolves continue to be protected by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service under the Endangered Species Act.

In August of 2000 a group of Canadian researchers published a paper arguing that the eastern wolf, long considered a subspecies of the gray wolf, was in fact its own species. Subsequent papers suggested that the eastern wolf’s traditional range included the Great Lakes region and the 29 Eastern states.

This posed a problem for the gray wolves, who have been protected by the Endangered Species Act since the early 1970s.

When gray wolves were first protected, their historic geographic range was listed as including some of the same parts of the country that some scientists were saying had been occupied by the eastern wolf.

If in fact those areas had been the eastern wolf’s range, the historical mistake could be enough to get the gray wolf bumped off the list of protected animals.

“It is written into the Endangered Species Act that if a taxonomic mistake is uncovered you can revoke the protection,” Wayne said. “It’s all dependent on taxonomy.”

And so Wayne and his team set to work on determining once and for all the true origin of the eastern wolf, and the red wolf, while they were at it.

The group analyzed the genomes of 12 pure gray wolves from areas with no coyotes, three coyotes from areas where there were no gray wolves, as well as six eastern wolves and three red wolves. They were looking for any mysterious genetic material that was not gray wolf or coyote, and could be uniquely considered red wolf or eastern wolf.

“In humans from Eurasia you can pick up 1-4% Neanderthal DNA — in the red and eastern wolves we thought we might find 20-30% of genes that would be Neanderthal-like,” Wayne said.

Instead, he said, the group found almost nothing that could not be explained as coming from coyotes or gray wolves.

“There is no evidence for distinct eastern or red wolf species,” he said. “So the idea that the red wolf historically inhabited the Great Lakes area is wrong.”

Wayne said it wasn’t until the 1920s that coyotes even reached the Great Lakes area and began to interbreed with a dwindling gray wolf population — resulting in the hybrid animal known as the eastern wolf.

A similar process happened in the American South hundreds of years earlier, resulting in the red wolf.

Wayne hopes his team’s findings will ensure that the gray wolf can continue to be protected under the Endangered Species Act. He said a decision on that from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service could come as early as this fall.

THE GREAT WOLF TAXONOMY DEBATE
Posted on July 27, 2016 by Maggie Howell


A flurry of news articles about wolf taxonomy hit the press today based on new research published by Bridgett M. vonHoldt, et al in Science Advances.

Wolf taxonomy, a messy topic for sure, will continue to be the subject of a lengthy, ongoing scientific debate. This latest genomic analysis is the newest chapter.

AN OVERVIEW:

On taxonomy: There is general agreement that (1) there were at least three waves of migrant wolves from Eurasia during the Pleistocene, and (2) coyotes are endemic to North America.

THE DEBATE:

Those in the 2-species camp (gray wolf, coyote), Bridgett M. vonHoldt, et al, believe that all wolves evolved in Eurasia. The waves of immigrant wolves during the Pleistocene were the ancestors of Canis lupus, the gray wolf. Under this scenario, Algonquin wolves and red wolves are of hybrid (gray wolf-coyote) origin.
Those in the 3-species camp (Algonquin wolf/red wolf, grey wolf, coyote), Linda Rutledge, et al, believe that a lineage of large canid originally arose in North America. Some members of this canid lineage migrated to Eurasia, where they were geographically isolated from the North American wolves and evolved into another species: Canis lupus. At the same time, back in North America, Algonquin wolves, red wolves, and coyotes also evolved from this canid lineage. When gray wolves returned during the Pleistocene era, they colonized western North America. But Canis lycaon (Algonquin wolves) and Canis rufus (red wolves) remained separate, viable species in eastern North America. Linda Rutledge’s genomic research published in Biology Letters in 2015 supports the 3-species model which concluded Algonquin wolves and red wolves represent a separate species.
COMMON GROUND:

When it comes to conservation and management, the scientists from both camps agree that the role canids play in ecosystems should be the focus, not just the evolutionary history of a species.

“Conservation focuses on a very species-specific model,” Rutledge stated in an interview in The Nature Conservancy’s Cool Green Science. “Agencies often want to know first whether a species is taxonomically valid, but that may not be an efficient way to approach conservation in general. Our research shows that what species are can be very difficult to pin down.”

In her paper, Bridgett M. vonHoldt concludes, “Our findings provide a critical heuristic lesson in endangered species management. The overly strict application of taxonomy to support endangered species status is antiquated. Species and taxonomic concepts are varied, complex, and difficult to apply in practice. We maintain that the Endangered Species Act could be interpreted in a modern evolutionary framework, devaluing the Victorian typological concept in exchange for a more dynamic view that allows for natural selection to occur on admixed genomes and to evolve phenotypes that are adapted to human-altered habitats and changing climates. These suggestions follow the “ecological authenticity” concept, in which admixed individuals that have an ecological function similar to that of the native endangered taxon, and that maintain a portion of the endangered genetic ancestry, warrant protection.”

CONCLUSION:

While the debate on wolf taxonomy continues, we acknowledge there is critical need for common ground among members of the scientific community when it comes to guiding decision making. Ecosystems need top predators. Their importance to a balanced and resilient ecosystem is undeniable. In other words, as Rutledge sums it up, “Let’s quit trying to make wolves fit into our neat little taxonomic boxes. Let’s focus instead on how to protect and restore their critical role as top predators.”

The problem with this analysis is that North Carolina is being over run with coyotes and there is no need for another top predator, in this case the 75% coyote.  It is impossible to keep them apart and equally impossible to sterilize all of the coyote and hybrid hybrids.  Remember the whole focus for saving the so-called red wolf was coyotes swarming into east Texas and doing the same thing they are doing here.

We're never going to get rid of the coyotes, but why does USFWS keep insisting on spending millions on an animal that in the wild can't be kept separated from the coyote with which it readily interbreeds.  Simple answer, job security for them and a path to the NGO's when they retire from USFWS.  It is a terrible investment to say we need keep pouring money into the red wolf as  a top predator when we have the coyote here in ever increasing numbers.

One thing we have learned is the NGO's run USFWS not Dan Ashe.

Take-um, with both the Mexican Wolf & Red Wolf both designated Non-Essential Experimental Populations why does the Service remove Mexican Wolves that disperse the recovery area yet they "Refuse" to do the same here in NC?

You can't make it up, private landowners should send this letter to the Service with their repeated removal request.

Subject: Formal ITP Request & The Illegal Release of 250+ Canids 10.8 miles from Nesting Turtle Habitat


Mr. Viker,

I see the below as a real problem for the NPS, the Service and specifically the Refuge Management...

Is anyone able to provide an explanation why the Refuge Management would "Knowingly" allow the release of just over 250 (252) Sterilized Wolves, Coyotes and Hybrids within 10.8 miles of Sea-Turtle & Plover nesting habitat?

We now learn years later Clemson University found "Vehicular" Beach Traffic was a successful management tool by reducing nesting depredations from 52% to only 15% given the presence of vehicular activity, that being said we have no choice than to follow where "Sound Science" leads us, thus FULLY restoring responsible vehicular traffic to the historic North Carolina Seashore. 

Knowing the NPS has the authority to request the FWS issue an Incidental Take Permit (ITP) under Section 10 of the ESA for a biologically sound pre-determined number of incidental takes from beach vehicular traffic, please provide me with written application / petition request as we look foward to working with the Service in fully restoring vehicular access to there previous historical levels.

Given the below, we expect the Service will have no issue as this is clearly the intent of the Incidental Take Permit (ITP), a useful management tool that has long been employed by your agency for this exact and I do mean exact, purpose... 

The efforts of the NPS to "Avoid and minimize take to the greatest extent possible" is well documented by mitigation efforts. 

These extraordinary mitigation measures conducted by the NPS are outside the scientifically unfounded vehicular driving restrictions forced upon a specific user group for the benefit of another, otherwise defined as an exclusive emolument (emphasis added).

The Service has a long documented history and precedent given the continued issuance of Incidental Take Permit # (ITP) - (PRT-811813/TE811813) to address historical vehicular beach traffic. 

I would kindly request you have staff provide the specific measures taken to "Avoid and minimize take to the greatest extent possible" prior to the issuance of Take Permit (ITP)-(PRT-811813/TE811813).

Additionally, NOAA for a number of years, has issued the North Carolina Marine Fisheries Commission an ITP for the Incidental Take of Turtles subsequent to otherwise lawfully afforded commercial fishing activities. 

Likewise please provide the specific documented mitigation measures taken to "Avoid and minimize take to the greatest extent possible" prior to the issuance of Take Permit #16230 (below) prior to its issuance.

With NO scientifically sound science available to support the illegal release of Turtle Nest Depredating Canids, I would trust the Service will...

Clearly reopening the National Seashore to its level of historical vehicle access and closely monitor the reduction in Carnivore Nest Depredations due to responsible vehicular movement is paramount and well supported in Clemson's 2012 Coyote Turtle Nest Study illustrating vehicular traffic reduced nesting depredation by Coyotes from a high of 54% to 15%.  Further reductions in depredations were achieved in the single digits by aggressive "Trapping". 

This high level of "Scientific" success is something the NPS will NEVER achieve by continuing to allow the Illegal Release of Sterilized Wolves, Coyotes & Hybrids as close as 10.8 miles from nesting habit.

Current data shows Carnivore's (Coyotes) are the # 1 driver of nest destruction!   

(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20160729%2Fdfb70d59b838f86506634566847da073.png&hash=96ea893cc8835b910a84ff7e263d9dbc)

Perhaps Mr. Bryant & Mr. Phillips are already ahead of me in issuing a report to Dan & the Secretary. 

Again, now that the onion has been pealed back, the Cause of "Nest Destruction" IS NOT vehicular traffic, yet - Refuge Staff allowing the "Illegal" release of nest depredating Wolves, Coyotes & Hybrids within 10.8 miles of nesting shoreline spanning the past 15 years.

By the NPS & USFWS "Knowingly" releasing over 250 Sterilized Wolves, Coyotes and Hybrids, ALL of which, are non-native and invasive to NC and with the Turtle & Plover nesting habitat just a few miles away, I offer the courts would agree, the adverse conservation actions authorized by Refuge Management, constitutes "Illegal" taking of an endangered species by way of "HARMING" it's Habitat, in other words... A criminal act.

As if that were not enough, you should be aware that your Refuge Management allowed this illegal nesting habitat destruction to occur (Sterilizations & Releases) of trapped Canids, in many cases with NO Written Authority from the North Carolina Wildlife Commission.  (Note date of permits below)

Mr. Phillips,

Does it concern FWS under the oversight of Refuge Management over 250 Depredating Wolves, Coyotes and Hybrids we allowed to be trapped, sterilized and re-released, in-part so close to the Mann's Harbor Community? 

Additionally, the required Interagency Consultation was NOT preformed to assess depredation risk to Plover & Turtle nest.

Certainly deliberately releasing in excess of 250 Canids within 10.8 miles of critical nesting Habitat would be problematic to Defenders, Audubon Society & your friends over @ SELC.   

Perhaps, vehicular traffic is not to blame for nest depredations, rather its the Refuge Manager authorizing their release?


<image7.PNG>


Below is the GPS location of this most recent "Illegally" Re-Released Red Wolf dated 7/25.  This Wolf seems to be frequenting residents trash searching for food inside the Mann's Harbor Community.

Mr. Phillips have you or FWS staff notified the residents of Mann's Harbor of this non-native predator, humanly constructed and illegally re-released that now is roaming their streets?  Are you aware of Goat Goat and the dangers this Wolf presents? http://myouterbankshome.com/gas-up-with-goat-goat/

You will recall author Deeland Beeland documented the frantic capture of a Red Wolf that was roaming around the Mann's Harbor Post Office (below) as it highlights the continued lies, deceit and cover-up by USFWS. 

I suppose you should alert the Community of Mann's Harbor so their residents can protect their pets & property and certainly Goat, Goat... don't you agree?   

I'd suggest penning a formal apology to the Dare County Pound for what refuge staff allowed to their borrowed animals!


P.S. - Might check this wolfs Scat for Endangered Sea-Turtle Eggs,  in case it trotted 10.8 miles east searching for Turtle & Plover nest...

Default Attention "Manns Harbor"
Attn: Manns Harbor

The one time the team tried to fire a dart on a "Recapture Collar" (in mid-October 1987), the system failed. The male South Lake wolf had taken to wandering until one night he arrived in  Manns Harbor. 


<image6.JPG>


DeBlieu wrote that the wolf trotted "between houses, sniffing at flower gardens." When he looted near the post office, a recapture team quickly gathered and fretted over his proximity to people. DeBlieu recorded that the team chased him through the evening as he ran in and out of people's yards. 

They tried several times to trigger the drug-filled darts on his collar but nothing happened. Luckily, they had air rifles and tranquilizer darts on hand. After several attempts, Parker finally got a clear shot and successfully darted the South Lake male at around 5:00 A.M. 

Later, it became evident that the 3M engineers may have failed to take into account the salty coastal air, which corroded some of the recapture collars' connections. 


<image5.JPG>


Rather than notify the public that the specialized collars were a bust, the Red Wolf Program measured the relative risk that the wolves posed and then decide to quietly let people forget the collars existed, according to Lucash. (Chris Lucash, USFWS Biologist Red Wolf Recovery Program)

Why is the Wolfwatcher Network "Celebrating" the 1977 Birth of what is documented as the first litter of Captive Pups? 

Official SSP Studbook indicates both 1977 litters were deemed to be Hybrids and were ordered "Destroyed" (Killed)...

Perhaps the Wolfwatchers should be paying homage to these hybrids 1977 "Funeral" and not their 1977 hybrid birth...

Subject: Formal Scientific Integrity Complaint



7/30/2016

Mr. David P. Scott,
Director, Office of Scientific Integrity
United States Fish and Wildlife Service


Mr. Scott,

Please find the below formal complaint alleging scientific misconduct surrounding the USFWS Captive Breeding Contractor, Point Defiance Zoo.  Additionally I am requesting a meeting with the investigating case manager / office assigned as I have many documents to greatly support these allegations. 

I take these alleged actions of scientific misconduct very seriously and will look forward to hearing from you in the coming days to discuss further.

Kindly, confirm receipt and acceptance.

Thank you -



Alleged Fraudulent Breeding Practices & Deliberately Contaminating Scientific Canid DNA Database(s) by USFWS Captive Breeding Program / Point Defiance Zoo (PDZ)

Please consider this as a formal allegation of additional Scientific and Academia Fraudulently activity. The below paper written by International Wolf Researcher Kaj Granlund provides a clear look into what appears to be the largest Wildlife Fraud in United States history.

Mr. Granlunds comments could best be summarized as the USFWS / Point Defiance Zoo (Captive Breeding Facility) artificially invented an Canid, named it the Canis rufus (Red Wolf) and called it an endangered species while eroding and illegally encroaching on Private Property Rights. 

The Point Defiance Zoo and USFWS may have long suppressed the facts that would have exposed the below statements made by Mr. Granlund as inquiring about the purging "Removal" of the original hybrids from the studbook.

Mr. Granlunds statements and accusations are further supported within the of the 1999 PVHA Minutes (Link Below) and the Official SSP Red Wolf Studbook. I would strongly suggest investigating funding the Point Defiance has received as documents show over $700K in federal grants having gone to the PDZ in 2013 alone as it relates to motivation to suppress sound science and fact. 

It is of cardinal importance to note the first litter of captive red wolf pups was born at the Point Defiance Zoos Captive Breeding Facility on May 3, 1977, with each being identified and logged as hybrids within the SSP Studbook. 2013 Red Wolf Studbook 2013

In a brief matter of days between May 3, 1977 and May 18, 1977 the Special Agent in Charge, Region 5, wrote the Assistant Solicitor, USFWS seeking clarification as to the Endangered Species Act (ESA) status of a hybrid wolf, both of who's parents are listed as "endangered or threatened" under the ESA. Given the timeline it seems to strongly suggest the inquiry centered around the May 3 hybrid litter and or the second hybrid litter born May 4, 1977. While it was initially communicated hybrids were covered under the ESA this was reconsidered in a subsequent memorandum, dated August 2, 1977, from the Acting Assistant Solicitor for Fish and Wildlife to the Deputy Associate Director for Federal Assistance. Based on more extensive information from the Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) as to the effects of treating hybrid as listed, and in light of the purpose of the ESA the August 2, 1977 opinion concluded that hybrids of listed species were not subject to the ESA's protection.

The August 2, 1977 memorandum incorporated the definition of "hybrid" used in the May 18, 1977 memorandum. This position that hybrids were not covered by the ESA was reaffirmed, after consideration of additional evidence from the Office of Endangered Species, in a third opinion by the Assistant Solicitor for Fish and Wildlife to the Associate Director for Federal Assistance Dated May 6, 1981. Given the definition employed for "hybrid", it is apparent that a hybrid of two listed species, such as the gray and red wolves, is covered by these memoranda and should not be considered as protected by the ESA.

The August 2, 1977 memorandum examined the legislative history of the ESA and concluded that its overriding purpose was to conserve and protect the genetic heritage of endangered species. Treating hybrids as protected under the ESA would defeat this project, since hybrids wold be entitled to the same legal protections and conservation measures as purebred specimen. 

The Service has in the past taken the position that hybridization is a threat to species and may, indeed, be a threat such as to support listing as endangered or threatened. See 40 Fed. Reg. 29863-64. This view of hybridization as a threat to a species has been cited, without criticism, by at least one federal district court. See Conner v. Andrus, . 453 F.Supp. 1037, 1041 (D.tex.1978) ('Clearly the record and evidence in this case demonstrate that the Mexican duck is threaten by the destruction of its natural habitat. Additionally, it shows that the other danger is hybridization with the mallard.')

This same reasoning would apply to hybrids whose parents are both listed species. While the entire genetic stock of such a hybrid would be that of the two endangered species, it would not be in such a form as to protect either of the two pure genetic stocks of the parents. That is to say, if two wolves of the type at issue here (hybrids between red and gray) were themselves to be bred, they would not produce purebred red wolves and purebred gray wolves. The genetic heritage of the gray wolf and the red wolf would thus not be conserved by protection of the hybrids. Extending the protections of the ESA to hybrids of this type would not promote the purposes of Congress in enacting the ESA.

For the reasons set forth above, we conclude that a hybrid who's parents are both listed species is nonetheless not covered by the ESA of 1973, 16 U.S.C. 55 1531 et sec. Thus requiring the USFWS to formally delist what became known as the Canis Rufus (Red Wolf) given its hybrid origin and alleged deliberate effort to suppress the hybrid facts of the founders after Donald J. Berry, Assistant Solicitor for Fish and Wildlife stated the "overriding purpose" was to preserve and protect the genetic heritage of endangered species. "Affording protections to hybrids would defeat this purpose".

1999 Red Wolf Pop. & Habitat Viability Assessment 4_1999


"Societal and legal repercussions, Endangered Species Act ESA considerations, administrative considerations, considerations and reaction of general public, etc the "mutt" response."

"Nowak (Ron) discussed the issue of reticulate patters as being natural." "It may be difficult to save something i.e., the red wolf that might not be considered natural." "He described the movement of coyotes across the country and argued that we no longer had true red wolves or true coyotes --- they are part coyote / wolves and red wolf /coyotes." "Regardless, he thought we should save the current population in a wildlife area as a national monument."

"Some discussion took place concerning the likelihood of reaching a resolution concerning the evolutionary origins of red wolves." "Redacted argued for avoiding discussion of the question of red wolf origins our of deference for resting red wolves, because elucidation of origins is intractable."

"The suite of morphological features used to originally define the red wolf have not been figured for the current captive population." "If they are going to be used to identify hybrids it could help to characterize the current captive population."

"Have original hybrids now been removed from the studbook?"

The Red Wolf

"The red wolf (Canis rufus) has gone through an interesting evolution." "It was thought to be extinct in the wild by 1980, but after the introduction of a captive breeding program, the animals are now breeding successfully in the wild." "The red wolf is morphologically midway between grey wolves and coyotes, and genetic analysis has indicated that it may carry genes from coyotes."

"In the red wolf recovery program, canids released into the wild were genetically fingerprinted and subsequent generations were tested against these canids." "Any canids showing signs of hybridization were euthanized."

"In other words, the red wolf recovery began with a hybrid, and all DNA databases were populated with samples from these first ”pure red wolves”.

"In this case, it was necessary to accept that the only viable path to re-establishment carried this risk of genetic pollution."

"Genetic Pollution is currently defined by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) as: Uncontrolled spread of genetic information into the genomes of organisms in which such genes are not present in nature."

"The name, the authority, and selected methods of science can sometimes be mis-used (in the short term) to cherry-pick evidence in support of an arbitrary belief." "I believe this is exactly what happened with the red wolf in the 1970’s." 

"After a “scientific” program of morphological evaluation and selection, the final truth was called the pure red wolf."

"In the red wolf recovery program, all animals released into the wild were genetically fingerprinted, and these “fingerprints” established the source for all subsequent DNA analysis." "In principle science is a self-correcting discipline, but it is difficult to see in this instance how one would prove that the red wolf is or is not a fabrication with no genuine lineage in natural history."

"The red wolf is whatever biologists decided they wanted to call a red wolf."

"Did they create a new species?" "Have there been red wolves in the past, or are they simply hybrids of grey wolves and coyotes?" "Whatever happened in the past, human intervention created something we call Canis rufus."

"After reference data was collected into databases, it is possible using DNA analysis to prove that any wolf and coyote hybrid matching these “fingerprints” is a pure red wolf."

"Contaminated DNA Samples are not our only concern." "Another concern is the contamination of databases and reference libraries." "There are examples of how "endangered species" have been reintroduced simply by using contaminated databases and introducing possible hybrids raised by breeders – instead of allowing the original species to reproduce in the wild."

Let's assume USFWS defies the intent of Congress and somehow attempts to extend ESA Protection to Hybrids, its still a "No-Go"...

The USFWS is only authorized to reintroduce a population within its "Present" Range. 

Now ask yourself, what is the "Contemporary" Red Wolf's "Present Range"? 

What is the "Comtemporary" Red Wolf's "Historic Range"?

Got it?

Much more forthcoming on this new development...

Subject: Update Requested Please

Mr. Phillips,

I would have expected a reply to this most serious issue of authorizing the release of 252 Non-Native (Wolves, Coyotes & Hybrids) within 10.8 miles of endangered nesting habitat... seeing NO Interagency Consultation was conducted.

We now have $10's of Millions in appropriated Funding expended thus, this is no small "Foul".

Specifically, how do you intend to Mitigate & Restore the previously stated Ideal Red Wolf Habit, that unfortunately has been illegally flooded with a "Sheet-flow" of H2O?


(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20160802%2F3fa7eb95783bccf8b6fc1f98b0754fe4.png&hash=4b799e51da67600fd9739e3854db5f4d)


Second, what measures is the Refuge & NPS planning on taking to trap and remove these 252 Non-Native Nest Depredating Wolves, Coyotes & Hybrids inclusive of their offspring from such valuable nesting habitat?


(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20160802%2F506db644ce2cc52660fa5ebaf075e0a0.jpg&hash=35187f5df478224602f1977e87f5c26d)


Third, where does the Service anticipate acquiring the funding to "Right these Wrongs"? 

I will remind you the Red Wolf has enjoyed is incredibly low federally assigned recovery rating of "5-C"...  In summary defined as a very low chance of recovery.  It's widely known this is one of the most high profile recovery efforts, with such a low chance of recovery, could perhaps this be what the GAO was referring to back in 1988?


(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20160802%2F671baf1af3f7d6e185734a772d4c7c56.png&hash=899a0268e4b262cba898e0cba932e441)


Nevertheless, please do update me on the 3 items above and how you are proceeding on issuing the requested Incidental Take Permit and if you anticipate restoring historical beach vehicular access in the next day or two?

Thank you,

Mr. Phillips,

Does it concern FWS under the oversight of Refuge Management over 250 Depredating Wolves, Coyotes and Hybrids we allowed to be trapped, sterilized and re-released, in-part so close to the Mann's Harbor Community? 

Additionally, the required Interagency Consultation was NOT preformed to assess depredation risk to Plover & Turtle nest.

Certainly deliberately releasing in excess of 250 Canids within 10.8 miles of critical nesting Habitat would be problematic to Defenders, Audubon Society & your friends over @ SELC.   

Perhaps, vehicular traffic is not to blame for nest depredations, rather its the Refuge Manager authorizing their release?


<image7.PNG>


Below is the GPS location of this most recent "Illegally" Re-Released Red Wolf dated 7/25.  This Wolf seems to be frequenting residents trash searching for food inside the Mann's Harbor Community.

Mr. Phillips have you or FWS staff notified the residents of Mann's Harbor of this non-native predator, humanly constructed and illegally re-released that now is roaming their streets?  Are you aware of Goat Goat and the dangers this Wolf presents? http://myouterbankshome.com/gas-up-with-goat-goat/

You will recall author Deeland Beeland documented the frantic capture of a Red Wolf that was roaming around the Mann's Harbor Post Office (below) as it highlights the continued lies, deceit and cover-up by USFWS. 

I suppose you should alert the Community of Mann's Harbor so their residents can protect their pets & property and certainly Goat, Goat... don't you agree?   

I'd suggest penning a formal apology to the Dare County Pound for what refuge staff allowed to their borrowed animals!

Thank you,

P.S. - Might check this wolfs Scat for Endangered Sea-Turtle Eggs,  in case it trotted 10.8 miles east searching for Turtle & Plover nest...

Default Attention "Manns Harbor"
Attn: Manns Harbor

The one time the team tried to fire a dart on a "Recapture Collar" (in mid-October 1987), the system failed. The male South Lake wolf had taken to wandering until one night he arrived in  Manns Harbor. 


<image6.JPG>


DeBlieu wrote that the wolf trotted "between houses, sniffing at flower gardens." When he looted near the post office, a recapture team quickly gathered and fretted over his proximity to people. DeBlieu recorded that the team chased him through the evening as he ran in and out of people's yards. 

They tried several times to trigger the drug-filled darts on his collar but nothing happened. Luckily, they had air rifles and tranquilizer darts on hand. After several attempts, Parker finally got a clear shot and successfully darted the South Lake male at around 5:00 A.M. 

Later, it became evident that the 3M engineers may have failed to take into account the salty coastal air, which corroded some of the recapture collars' connections. 


<image5.JPG>


Rather than notify the public that the specialized collars were a bust, the Red Wolf Program measured the relative risk that the wolves posed and then decide to quietly let people forget the collars existed, according to Lucash. (Chris Lucash, USFWS Biologist Red Wolf Recovery Program)

Subject: Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge - ZEKA Alert

Mr. Phillips,

Are you aware of the recently released Zika Virus Recommendations by the National Parks Service calling for Reduction of Manmade Mosquito Breeding Areas?

These warning were issued by the Department of Interior / National Parks Services, that being said how many miles of the below dyke were constructed since the DOI issued the below "Recommendation"?

As many see it were now Talking, Nesting Turtle & Plover Canid Depredation's, Illegally Flooding out Endangered Red Wolves to make way for the newly installed $5M "ZEKA Nursery"...  And still a crowd favorite the Illegally Gunshot Red Wolf that "Happened" to die of "Heart-worms"...

Has the NPS & NWR posted the Department of Interior ZEKA bulletins (below) alerting the public of recent efforts to "Re-Purpose" Ideal Red Wolf Habit into a $5M ZEKA Nursery?

Is the Illegal Flooding of the Refuge really about Carbon Credits, yet it was "Sold" as a Rehydration "Sheet-Flow" H2O Project?

Lot of Question's & "Crickets"...

NY Wolf.org has been officially added to an exclusive group of "Profiteers" off the Public Trust and its Assets! 

NY Wolf joins Defenders of Wildlife, Animal Welfare Institute and the Red Wolf Coalition.

The below was just published by NY Wolf and it lacks any transparency and fails to alert supporters of the new paper which concluded the Red Wolf is 75% Coyote and not a wolf at all rather a Hybrid this NOT covered under the ESA.


Published on Aug 4, 2016

The red wolf (Canis rufus) is the only wolf species found completely within the United States. Once common throughout the southeastern United States, red wolf populations were decimated by the 1960s due to intensive predator control programs and loss of habitat. In 1980, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) declared red wolves extinct in the wild after the last wild red wolves were gathered to survive in captivity, their wildness caged. With the support of the Federal Red Wolf Species Survival Plan, a national initiative whose primary purpose is to support the reestablishment of red wolves in the wild through captive breeding, public education, and research, and under the aegis of the Endangered Species Act, red wolves were reintroduced in North Carolina in 1987. They were the first federally-listed species to be returned to their native habitat, and have served as models for other programs. But today, USFWS, the very agency charged by federal law with protecting endangered species, is walking away from recovering the last wild red wolves to satisfy a few very vocal opponents. The current estimate puts the remaining wild population at their lowest level in decades. Only 45 wild red wolves remain.

More "Spin" by Ben Prater (Defenders of Wildlife) via Paid Radio Ad!  Mr. Prater fails to acknowlage the most recent science noting the Red Wolf is really a Coyote (75%)!

Of course Defenders of Wildlife "Pays" Mr. Prater to peddle their profiteering "Donate Now" Agenda!

8/10 - Red Wolf Killed -

Recently Released Red Wolf is being officially reported as dead by the USFWS.  The loss of this problematic endangered Red Wolf occurred just weeks after its controversial re-release. 

Concerns began mounting calling for the USFWS to trap this individuals animal given its frequent visits rummaging the streets of Manns Harbor.

Additional concerns were raised as the required Section 7 interagency consultation was apparently sidestepped. 

This critical piece of underwriting science would serve to examine the risk of Adaptively Releasing over 250 reproductively modified Coyotes, Wolves and Hybrids within such close proximity to Endangered nesting Sea-Turtles!

Based on information obtained by Citizens Science there is great concern about the condition of the GPS Collar and whether it was destroyed as well. 

 


Update GPS Coordinates

Has the Red Wolf Coalition stopped informing the public about the Red Wolf?

Why are they refusing to report on the Red Wolf that USFWS failed to remove from at times downtown Manns Harbor and was just run over & Killed.

Wonder if this occurred at night?  They might need to file an injunction halting all nighttime driving at Manns Harbor, where the USFWS said the wolves would not be!

Wait -- Perhaps that's why USFWS, NPS and their "Cozy" buddies at the "Depredators of Wildlife" halted the night time beach traffic...

I wonder if they blamed it on the Turtles  & Plovers when it was really about preventing vehicular mortality of the 252 illegally released canids just 10.8 miles from ideal Turtle & Plover Nesting Habitat?

Subject: BREAKING: Alaska wolf killing out of control

Help us protect predators in Alaska and imperiled wildlife nationwide.

Dear Jett,

An entire wolf pack killed. Years of research cut short.
Alaska’s campaign of brutal and indiscriminate killing of wolves, bears and other predators is so intense that National Park Service scientists are abandoning a 23-year old study of wolf behavior because so many of their study animals have been killed.

This cannot stand. Your urgent donation will help us protect predators in Alaska and imperiled wildlife nationwide.

Since 2005, Alaska has been killing predators using a range of outrageous tactics including aerial gunning, killing mother wolves and their young in their dens, using bait to attract bears and using traps and snares. The state has also expanded hunting seasons and bag limits to aggressively target predators in an effort to artificially inflate moose and other game animal populations so that hunters have more to shoot.

JETT, HELP US PROTECT WOLVES >>
They even use "Judas wolves," animals that are caught, radio-collared and then lead shooters back to their doomed packs.

Jett, despite last week’s news that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finalized a rule to prohibit this sort of abuse on national wildlife refuges, we are confident that Alaska will continue to pull out all the stops to block these crucial regulations.
And advocates of Alaska’s extreme and excessive killing practices have friends on Capitol Hill. In fact, legislative proposals to nullify this new rule have already passed the full U.S. House of Representatives twice!

Defenders worked hard to help establish these regulations, and now, we are working even harder to stop Congress from blocking them.
These are desperate times for the wildlife you and I love. Together, we can turn back these appalling attacks and protect imperiled animals wherever they are threatened. We can do it, but only with the help of people who care...people like you.
Please donate today.

Thank you for all you do!

Sincerely,
Jaime Rappaport Clark

Should North Carolina follow the pathway scribed in-part by the DOW & RWC that prescribes the eratication of newborn denning (predators) coyote pups?

"Are there too many bears and mountain lions in Colorado? Are they the reason behind mule deer decline? Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) wants to find out. As part of a three-year study, CPW will eliminate excess bears and mountain lions through strategic predator control on the Roan Plateau and monitor what happens next."

Hello everyone! I hope summer is treating you well. Here in Washington, D.C., of course, it's hot! But it's my 34th summer here, so I'm used to it.
 
It's no secret; Barack Obama's Presidency is counting down. Less than 6 months remain, and the most common question I get these days is, "What's next?" Sometimes I say, "Sleep!" Sometimes I say, "A very long list of home projects." Sometimes I say, "I dunno. What's next for you?" That usually gets a reaction!
 
Well, here's what's next for me. I've been offered and have accepted the position of President and Chief Executive Officer of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). I'm very excited about this because I'll be leading an organization and a community that is a force, and importantly, aspires to be an even better force in wildlife conservation.
 
Leaving the Service will be difficult. But I'm not leaving yet!  When I took the job of Director, I made a personal commitment to serve through this Administration, so I requested, and the AZA Board generously agreed to let me complete my term. So, you're stuck with me until January 20, and I'll save my farewells until then.
 
And we have a lot to do! Mitigation policy; IUCN conference; Refuge oil and gas regulations; CITES COP; Grizzly bear delisting; Bald and Golden Eagle Act Regulations; MBTA permit framework; California water and delta smelt; Monarch butterfly (you didn't think I'd forget the Monarch!); Alaska predator rule; prairie potholes; furthering workforce diversity and inclusion; and hopefully, with a little help from Tom Melius and Region 3, a visitor center to dedicate, at the Detroit River International Fish and Wildlife Refuge!! Whew!!! That is a lot. And of course, there's more.
 
Between now and then, I'm recused from participating personally and substantially in any particular matter that would have a direct and predictable effect on the financial interests of AZA. And I've been recused since discussions with AZA began, back in May.
 
In the meantime, I'm proud to continue serving as Director. I will continue to give the job -- and all of you -- my very best, and I intend to sprint through the finish line. As you always have, l know you'll kick into high gear and sprint with me!
 
Very best! And please have a wonderful weekend!!
 
Dan.

Citizens Science identifies massive "Range" complications given published federal rules, deeming many "Reintroductions" problematic of epic scale!

Just a few populations include the California Condor, Mexican Wolf, Black Footed Ferret and the Red Wolf!

In summary, stemming from two court rulings, the USFWS formally withdrew its interpretation on "Range" (below).


(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20160823%2F6ef7362dbdafa299dcfe694af8d959eb.jpg&hash=6f8f471e6672b41c57c9c8d004db32f5)


What happened next has far reaching consequences to many reintroduction efforts across the US...

USFWS formally publishes its "New"  Range Policy.


(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20160823%2F269397e29f3436e7b3540b98552c4a1b.jpg&hash=81004f72d625c32cba41ebc140a781a5)


This new policy "ONLY" allows listings  within a "Significant Portion of its Range" (SPR).  SPR is defined as the Present Range of the Species at the time of listing determination.  Most notable is the absence of the word "Historic".

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Marine Fisheries Service (the Services) jointly announced a policy to improve and clarify implementation of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) by providing a formal interpretation of the phrase "significant portion of its range" that appears in the ESA definitions of "endangered species" and "threatened species." This policy improves ESA implementation by providing a consistent and uniform standard for interpretation of the phrase "significant portion of its range" by the Services in making decisions to list species in need of federal protection and delist species no longer in need of federal protection.

This policy clarifies that the Services can list a species if it is endangered or threatened in a "significant portion of its range," even if that species is not endangered or threatened throughout all of its range. Under the policy, a portion of the range of a species is defined as "significant" if the species is not currently endangered or threatened throughout all of its range, but the portion's contribution to the viability of the species is so important that, without the members in that portion, the species would be in danger of extinction, or likely to become so in the foreseeable future, throughout all of its range.

Given many Endangered Species ONLY exist in Captivity and in some cases the USFWS has officially declared species "Extinct" in the wild thus by the Services own admission the species ONLY exist in "Captivity". 


(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20160823%2F006abb26b5355fd432729e9402eaf818.jpg&hash=8ec5acac245666fab3ddeefda73783eb)

Simply put, the "Significant Portion of its Range" of a "Captive Population" is therefor defined and confined to the "Size" of the species "Captive ZOO Enclosure." 

Remember today's "Contemporary" Red Wolf has NEVER existed anywhere prior to being selectively bred and humanly constructed inside the Point Defiance Zoo.

You can assume this will throw a massive "Monkey Wrench" inside the agency and leave Congress "Demanding" more answers...

Apparently, many residence are more interested in protecting sea-turtles & plovers from the artificial influx of hybrid Red Wolves and have too abandoned their once vocal howl of support.

Director Ashe has now accepted a post USFWS position as the new CEO of the Association of Zoo's and Aquarium's (AZA)...

Given the "Millions" in USFWS Captive Breeding, Taxpayer Funded Grants awarded to AZA Zoo Partners, please allow this communication to serve as a request to contact the Secretary and inquire whom will be charged deciding whether the Service will continue to allocate taxpayer funds to Red Wolf SSP, AZA Zoo partners and operate the Point Defiance Zoo's Hybrid Wolf Mill...

More trouble for the Animal Welfare Institute (AWI)...

It is widely known and accepted the entire USFWS Red Wolf Introduction effort hinges on an attempt to curb and artificially manage hybridization.

The key driver is removing the hybrid threat... "Coyotes"!

Additionally the AWI has recently posted a response to Citizens Science claims calling them "False".  When Citizens Science contacted AWI and confronted their staff legal counsel they abruptly ended the conversation by hanging up...

However AWI is on recorded "Supporting" the Sterilization of Coyotes while continuing to mislead their donors and supporters, stating Citizens Science well documented claims are "False".  This is nothing short of a prime example of how far the Animal Welfare Institute will go to suppress Adaptive Coyote "Eradication"  the "Nucleus" of AWI's entire federal lawsuit and keep this fact from its Donors!

https://awionline.org/content/awi-statement-response-false-online-petitions

It goes without saying the use of Steel Leg-hold Traps were used to catch each of the 199 coyotes prior to there Sterilization.

Now we learn AWI, a Not For Profit is using its Donor Funds in part to sue the USFWS by demanding a federal judge force the USFWS to resume the use of Cruel Leg-hold Traps to catch and Sterilize even more Coyotes as supported by AWI.

"Trapping is one of the most efficient and effective means for the Red Wolf Recovery Program biologists to capture red wolves."

"We use a steel leg-hold trap, which requires an animal to step in the center of the trap triggering it to close on the animal’s foot."

http://trackthepack.blogspot.com/2010/06/management-techniques-trapping-and.html?m=1

Other methods such as Den Hunting are used for total eradication of denning pup litters.

Why is the Animal Welfare Institute so intent with it's cruel quest to have many more Coyotes eradicated from the landscape given its position on "Compensatory Breeding"? 

These examples serve as additional examples of the misguided leadership and poor legal counsel from AWI's own internal staff.

Below is what AWI peddles when it's not suing demanding exactly what these two documents explain... "Adaptive Management"...

Yet another example of the Eco-Enterprisers spreading total mistruths to create pandemonium in a misguided effort to drive donations!

Question?  How is the Red Wolf going to go extinct given the 200+ Red Wolves that are safely housed in captivity?

Further it is widely known the Point Defiance Zoo maintains all the active hybrid ingredients inclusive of Ms. Waits "Secret Recipe" needed to clone these one off Red Wolf Hybrids.

As long as we have captive Gray Wolves & Coyotes and a paid Wolf Mill (Point Defiance Zoo) this humanly constructed, selectively bred hybrid experimental canid will never be in danger of extinction.

Subject: Endangered Species Coalition & Red Wolf Restoration Scandal


Ms. Huta,

Thank you for your interest in conservation, however I'm a bit perplexed by your recent statement that should the USFWS curtail their experimental non-essential red wolf introduction the red wolf would simply go extinct.

With years of conservation knowledge and credentials your statements, from my view are reckless, irresponsible and blatantly false.

Fortunately, the Red Wolf Coalition chose to file a lawsuit to ban the lawful take if coyotes on private lands... 

While this one misguided lawsuit has served to fully expose the corruption within the USFWS and is closely held NGO relationships it will soon result in what will be the complete termination of the Red Wolf Program, Mexican Wolf Program and the Florida Panther Program. 

Combined these three illegal programs have fleeced Americans out of in excess of $1Billion Dollars.  Making this Hybrid Fraud the largest Wildlife Disaster in US history.

Perhaps, I may have read your statement incorrectly, thus feel free to explain such should that be the case.

Citizens Science in no way hijacks viewers or posters information in any way. 

Citizens Science does not charge and has never accepted a donation for its work or to fund any of its expenses.

I have chosen not to weigh-in on the red wolf debate until now.  I think many landowners should applaud what Mr. Ferebee has done in refusing to give in to the Fish and Wildlife and the various red wolf groups.  For an individual to dedicate as much time and energy to a single issue is very rare. 

Mr. Ferebee I admire your passion and unwavering determination to hold fish and wildlife’s feet to the fire on the very laws they are to uphold.

While the FWS SE Leadership has been clear in its effort to "Restore the Trust" in the Service through the eyes of those residing in the 5 county area, it has come to my attention that we have yet again, a Dead (Gunshot) Red Wolf that was not included in the USFWS current mortality data.

This omission occurring for the past 8 months, giving pause to the question of why?

Credit - February 21, 2016 Gunshot Red Wolf

It should be noted this Red Wolf was Shot on private lands after the USFWS had received a formal red wolf removal request from the landowner. 

The date of Gunshot...  "Based of Field Sign & Body Condition" supports "There is a High Likelihood it Died of Heart-worms"...(??)

Nevertheless, this confirmed "Gunshot" Red Wolf Mortality occurred on February 21, 2016...  Yet the current mortality table does not show record of this legally "Reported" Incidental Kill.

Add this Gunshot Mortality to the more recent Second Mortality death of Red Wolf 14-011F that too is missing from the USFWS Mortality making these two recent mortalities “Suspiciously Suppressed” from the Trusting Public.

How many other Mortalities have occurred and are known to the USFWS yet continue to go unreported to the Public.

With the ongoing Red Wolf Feasibility Team meetings and pending decision on the fate of the Red Wolf Program, have all RWFT members been made aware of the loss of these two Red Wolves and what impact does  their death have on the loss of Genetic's via Genetic Swamping?


(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20160831%2F452c43da21d2eb712c84e69b797dea56.jpg&hash=1ac7180bef10b7062345233b5b79b4ca)


The Service will recall the recent Office of Inspector Generals Report "Centered" around manipulated mortality data, stating while the OIG investigation was ongoing FWS compiled all mortality data and corrected all listing discrepancies. 

It's ironic, at the same time the OIG was issuing their findings the USFWS failed to accurately list ongoing mortality on the very report being investigated by the OIG....

Please alert me via email when you or staff have time to update the mortality data to show the death of these two canids and others you or the Service may be aware of yet remain unpublished.

Thank you

Ms. Clark... Let's see the questions posed...  and if you had your DOW "Donor" list polled, Democrats or both Republicans and Democrats?

Did #TulchinResearch write the questions or did your DOW V.P. Nina Fiasco co-author this poll just as she did the Defenders of Wildlife's "Puppy Eradication Plan"??

Defenders of Wildlife has a well documented history of promoting bogus "Eco-Tourism Study's" that are simply put Crooked and Corrupt.

Ms. Clark, that is likely why you and the "Depredators" of Wildlife are not pimping the bogus economic figures, rather have chosen to sue in federal court demanding the USFWS resume the "Eradication of Nursing Puppies" just as written in part by your own DOW Vice President, Nina Fiasco.

Citizens Science is pleased to research, provide the documents and facts that serve to fully expose these misguided Public Trust Pimps such as Ms. Clark, Ms. Liss and Ms. Hutt. 

All three of these "Puppy Killing Advocates" are an embarrassment to legitimate animal rights and wildlife conservation groups.

 

Many, such as DOW, CEO Jamie Clark whom collects nearly $500,000.00 per year off the backs of innocent donors while this same CEO...  Jamie Rappaport Clark, uses the federal courts and twist the Equal Access to Justice Act to "Kill and Eradicate Newborn Nursing Puppies"!

Do Defenders of Wildlife donors really support a $500,000.00 CEO that uses donor funds to "Eradicate" Newborn Nursing Pups?

This disgusting leadership motive should be widely condemned and call for the resignation of Ms. Jamie Rappaport Clark and her internal DOW sue & settle cartel.

Ms. Clark, question...

Why are you not selling your "Bogus" economic "Eco-Tourism" study you paid $10,000.00 to invent and use to underwrite a totally illegal, invented Red Wolf Scandal?

North Carolina residents should take great pride in knowing Citizens Science stands with our Citizens and will stop at nothing to fully expose the misguided leadership who uses our "Public Trust" Property, owned whole and equitable to "Profit" with NO Licensing Agreement from the USFWS! 

That's correct, the DOW, RWC and AWI are profiting off public trust assets by "Illegally" granting themselves an "Exclusive Emolument" against the Constitution...

Jamie Rappaport Clark thinks North Carolina residents are ignorant, uneducated and would believe her DOW $10,000.00 "Rhetoric" study that selfishly serves to fund her nearly $500,000.00 Salary serves as fact.  Well, unless Ms. Clark is suggesting Eco-pup Eradication "Charters" would aid the local economy it's a failed study.   

Lady's and Gentleman Ms. Clarks Puppy Eradication Agenda is funded by Donors! 

Yes donors, the same ones DOW works to suppress these facts Puppy facts from!




Default Plaintiff Funds "Bogus" $1M Red Wolf Economic Study (2005)!!!
"$1,000,000.00 Income Predicted

89% of Residents Wanted to Attend"

2005 Study

Kim Wheeler, Director Red Wolf Coalition (Quote; RWC Activity July - Sept 2011, "6 years Later")

"We had 57 people that stopped in the office to inquire about the red wolf program during this quarter."

Quotes from Study Below;

CONCLUSIONS

For red wolves to contribute to the local economy, the Red Wolf Center has to be built. We stress this, along with a tourism plan for the area which includes participation from rural residents, and local training in the aspects of ecotourism that residents seek. These are the key next-steps for these communities, if they are to take advantage of the times, and their unique natural assets.

At the same time, the great majority of residents interviewed were not happy about the government’s continued involvement in wolf recovery after 17 years, as they believed a viable species should, by now, be able to live on its own, and therefore the amount of tax dollars spent on the recovery program is not justified.

Residents said that the Red Wolf Center would be a positive contribution to this effort, and tourists agreed – with 89% of those interviewed wanting to come visit the Center once it opened.

Revenue

Conversely, almost 90% of visitors surveyed scored that they were interested in visiting the Red Wolf Center at Columbia, when built. Our data calculated that 76% of tourists surveyed were willing to both visit the Center, and pay $5.00 in an admission charge. Using a figure of 10% of this 76% as actual attendance (7.6%), the Center could predict 15,200 visitors per week, and a weekly income of $76,000, for a total of $912,000 in
Red Wolf Ecotourism Report, p. 59 summer revenue. Adding in gift and food receipts could bring this total to over $1 million. Even with a worst-case scenario of the Center drawing only 2% of willing visitors, revenue generated becomes $200,000

(Study Funding Source)

Lastly, but certainly not least, a very gracious thank you goes to Nina Fascione and Frank Casey of Defenders of Wildlife, and to Barrett Walker of the Alex C. Walker Educational and Charitable Foundation, for envisioning, funding, and supporting this work throughout the project, and for their enthusiasm for this project and its potential to help bring about positive economic development to this area while supporting wild populations of red wolves.

Hello Wolfers,

Mike advised me to send this to ya'll since all things red wolf have to be widely coordinated. Note that Kim Wheeler was involved by my Pathways Intern who didn't know about the sensitivities surrounding this topic.

Here are the questions that are in the reporter's attachment:

1.) How many red wolves are present on the refuge?
2.) Do you generally see more red wolves than coyotes?
3.) How do you think the controversy between the two should be handled?
4.) What are you guys doing to help?
5.) What is future plans of the wildlife refuge?
6.) Have you received any complaints or comments referring to the red wolves? Explain.
7.) Anything else you wish to add or I forgot to ask, feel free to include.

Let me know what I need to do. Thanks!

Neil Hutt
Scott G., your hiding behind the Drew Westfield alias is almost as reprehensible as your sick obsession with this pup "Eratication" (make that eradication) topic and your accusations that the Red Wolf Coalition is complicit in "Killing Nursing Pups." As for that Facebook page - it has been up and running for months with 11 page "likes" and only an occasional lonely comment on your posts.

Congratulations to the noted author who recently got your defamatory remarks about her book pulled down from that page by Facebook administrators. I hope that readers here will take a glance at the page via your link above and have the experience of being greeted by the hijacked coyote (with the mangled foot) photo you stole from the Minnesota Wildlife Rehabilitation Center.

Ms. Hutt - You are correct and that's exactly what I'm saying you as the Chair of the Red Wolf Coalition allegedly illegally "Purchased" Wildlife (Coyotes) with NO Authority from the State of North Carolina.  Mamm... Were you not aware it is highly illegal to buy live Coyotes without written authority from the North Carolina Wildlife Resource Commission?

You even went as far as to document and list the alleged illegal spend of $1,175.00 on the Red Wolf Coalitions 990.

You would be correct in construing my comments to mean the Red Wolf Coalition has now sued the USFWS in federal court demanding the FWS resume the recently halted “Adaptive Newborn Puppy Eradication Plan" that was co-written by yes, the Red Wolf Coalition.

The Red Wolf Coalition even stated (below), removal (Killing) of Newborn Pups was;  1) Faster and 2) Cheaper!!  Faster and Cheaper… really, Ms. Hutt??

Ms. Hunt to clear the air… I am absolutely stating the Red Wolf Coalition co-wrote the Puppy Eradication Plan and YOU as Chair most recently sued in federal court to force FWS to "Resume" Eradicating Nursing Puppies and the use of "Cruel Leg-hold Traps on Federal Wildlife Refuge Lands.

You should Fess-Up Ms. Hutt the facts above and below have completely eroded all wiggle room for you to attempt any spin. 

The Red Wolf Coalition owns the designation of being one of the most previously suppressed puppy killing advocates to ever use Donor Funds to achieve such a low…

Have you considered resigning as the Chair of the Red Wolf Coalition?  I would encourage you to give that some serious thought, it would be a noble step for you to consider.

There is no better example of why there is "NO" Trust with the local landowners and farmers...  Until the academia community its familiarized itself with the federal rules prior to pilfering federal grants, by way of an Illegal federal fraud, USFWS will never gain trust.


Quote -

Joey Hinton is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Georgia. He was a graduate student and field technician with the program. He told NCPW that “there were no problems with releases on private lands. We had keys to several properties. And with the research being done there, you had to have cooperation of the landowners.”


Really...  No problems with the releases on private land??

Subject: Red wolves face extinction in North Carolina for second time :: The Daily Tar Heel


Mr. MacKenzie -

While at times many have been highly critical of the handling of the Red Wolf program and at times disagreed with your (USFWS) perception / quotes given to the media.


Tom MacKenzie, a spokesperson for the Fish and Wildlife Service’s southeast region, cited the North Carolina coyote population as one of the greatest challenges to the program.

“Unlike larger gray wolves, coyotes and red wolves can intermingle,” he said. “Without human intervention, sterilization or killing coyotes, it’s hard to stop it — but it’s a really complex situation.”


Your comment above goes a long ways in transparently educating the public on what a successful red wolf program would look like...  Buckets full, of dispatched coyote pups. 

To that point as humans (public)... do we place a higher value on a humanly constructed, selectively bred canid than a newborn, nursing coyote pup?

If the public fully understood just how many pups have been dispatched to save this majestic red canid there would be little to no public support.  And definitely severely limit the plaintiffs ability to fundraise while denying their lethal pup killing agenda and federal suit brought against your agency.

I commend your effort to softly open this much needed discussion among the public and members of Congress.

USFWS has a great opportunity to bring light on this most interesting federal case, that is founded in pup eradication.  An "Adaptive" Pup eradication plan co-written by Defenders of Wildlife and the Red Wolf Coalition (plaintiffs).

Possibly for the very first time Animal Rights Groups have solicited donor funds and used these funds in part to sue your agency stating in summary;

USFWS is not utilizing enough Steel Leg-hold Traps on Public Lands nor is USFWS Eradicating enough Newborn Coyote Pups on its Public Lands.

Tom, one national news release ends the entire court case and likely would have the plaintiffs donors demanding refunds in utter disgust.

Again, a sincere thank you on softly getting the truth out to the donating public.

- Simple, USFWS Refuge Staff Illegally “Flooded” their ideal Red Wolf habitat. 

- Dr. Chamberlin failed to acknowledge the many Red Wolves that are Illegally Released onto Private Lands with NO Federal Authority outside of Dare County.  Why?

- The illegal habitats modification resulted in impeding the Red Wolves ability to:

  - Breed
  - Feed
  - Seek Shelter

- Subsequently 60 of the 64 confirmed gunshot mortality cases occurred on PRIVATE LANDS where USFWS Knowingly Knew Red Wolves only enjoyed Threatened Status vs Fully Protected Status on Federal Lands.

This clearly places USFWS staff in violation of the Take Provision via Harming the Red Wolf Habitat.

Dr. Chamberlin seems to omitted all of the above facts in his reply to Judge Boyle.

Subject: "Presumed Presence" Court Ruling - Paralyzes USFWS $34M "Invasive" Red Wolf Program

Mr. Williams,

Wanted to ensure you are given the response provided by Ron Nowak (below) when questioned on "Historic Range" relating to the Red Wolf.

Specifically, given the courts clear decisions (AZ Cattleman / Pygmy Owl) ruling, did WMI advise USFWS of Mr. Nowak's admission stating;

Nowak quote - "It would be very difficult to prove conclusively, to everyone's satisfaction, that the red wolf historically occurred in North Carolina."

When you connect the following 5 elements

1) Nowak Lack of Historic Range Admission
2) Court Decision / Pygmy Owl 
3) Presumed Presence 
4) 1972 Official Historic Range Map
5)  Hours of personal conversations, as recently as just last night with the Author of the 1972 Historic Range Map (below).

These elements therefore define the USFWS Red Wolf Program as invasive, non-native and contrary to the courts ruling within North Carolina.

Please advise if FWS has been formally informed by WMI of the red wolfs lack of "presumption of presence" within the bounds of North Carolina and Ron Nowak's admission of such.

I would expect reporting back to USFWS is within your / WMI scope and Historic Range Contract awarded to WMI by FWS.

Again - "Presumed Range" & "Pigmy Owl" defines the pending decision for USFWS on the Red Wolf program here in NC.

Of course if Nowak was ok "Inventing" the Red Wolf we should "Presume" he'd be ok "Inventing" it's "Presumed Range" too...

Subject: Re: Red Wolf Research


I will be glad to try to help with your article.  I'm not sure how much detail you need, but will provide some basic answers to your questions, and you can let me know if you want additional information.

Your reference to a change in the historic range of the red wolf in 1979 probably relates to my publication that year ("North American Quaternary Canis," Monograph of the Museum of Natural History, University of Kansas, Number 6), in which I suggested that, based on a number of early specimens, the original distribution of the species extended farther up the east coast than previously believed.  Since then I actually have extended the range even farther north; the attached publication covers this matter in detail.

It would be very difficult to prove conclusively, to everyone's satisfaction, that the red wolf historically occurred in North Carolina. 

That is because so few early eastern specimens have been preserved or discovered.  Although there are numerous historical records showing that wolves lived in the state, the descriptive information provided is not sufficient to positively identify the species involved.  Our understanding that the red wolf occupied the state is based more on biogeographical logic.  As indicated in the attached publication, there are quite a few early specimens of wild Canis from the Southeast in general.  Every one of those specimens, with sufficient components to analyze, was assessed in the study.  There are no other specimens.  All of those specimens throughout the Southeast, dating from around 10,000 to 100 years ago, were consistent in characters and appeared to represent a single species---the red wolf (Canis rufus).  There was no evidence that either the gray wolf
(Canis lupus) or the coyote (Canis latrans) was present at that time.  The specimens included a sufficient number of complete skulls to statistically characterize the red wolf and to show that it did not statistically overlap with large series of gray wolves and coyotes.

There is a physical specimen from North Carolina, as reported in the attached (pages 97, 110, 129). It is a maxillary fragment containing two important teeth---the fourth premolar and the first molar.  The specimen is held by the North Carolina State University Department of Zoology. It is from the Franklin Site, Macon County, dating from about 300 years ago.  The size of the teeth is within the range shown by the seven other known maxillary fragments of wild Canis from archeological sites east of the Mississippi (dates 2000–200 BP). It is also within the range of the same teeth in eight complete, mostly modern skulls from east of the Mississippi and that I consider to be the statistical foundation of Canis rufus.  Unfortunately, simply measuring those two teeth does not by itself allow clear separation from Canis lupus. However, multivariate statistical analysis does allow clear separation of the complete early eastern skulls from C. lupus.  The fact that the earlier fragmentary material from the same region shows the same range of measurements as in the complete skulls, which are clearly separable from C. lupus, is good evidence that the fragments also represent C. rufus.  Again, remember that we have no definite specimens of C. lupus from anywhere in the Southeast.

Also, as noted in the attached, there are early complete skulls of the red wolf known from several states close to North Carolina, specifically Florida, Pennsylvania, and Alabama.  Two Alabama skulls are from sites within 100 miles of the North Carolina border.  There are no gray wolf skulls, or coyote skulls, dating from 10,000 to 100 years ago, from anywhere near North Carolina.  The closest definite records of the gray wolf are from Michigan and Oklahoma.

My 1979 publication was a version of my Ph.D. dissertation, which, as best as I can recall, was reviewed by five professors expert in the fields of mammalogy (E. Raymond Hall, Robert S. Hoffmann), canid taxonomy (Robert M. Mengle), paleontology (Craig C. Black), and statistical analysis (Peter M. Neely).  There were further reviews when the manuscript was submitted for publication, one by Barbara Lawrence of Harvard University, an authority on canid taxonomy and paleontology. 
 
The original listing of the red wolf as an endangered species was based primarily on my assembly of historical and field data, and available taxonomic literature, which I submitted to FWS in the early 1960s.  My report was followed up by field and taxonomic study by an FWS biologist, John Paradiso, and by other investigations which led to the listing.  I did not myself begin to make extensive examination and measurement of large numbers of skulls until 1968-1969.  My studies did contribute to development and maintenance of conservation measures by FWS. 

Finally, you seem to want my opinion as to whether measurements/statistical analysis or molecular assessment/DNA analysis represent the best available scientific evidence for classifying the red wolf as an endangered species.  This of course involves extensive controversy that has been going on now for a quarter century.  My own experience is limited to morphology and statistical analysis of measurements.  I believe molecular work has great potential for the future, but that so far it has not proved fully reliable.  There has been considerable contradictory work with respect to canids and a number of other mammals, such as the Florida manatee and African elephant.  I need only point out that the two major teams that have employed molecular analysis to study the red wolf have come to diametrically opposite conclusions. The group at Trent University believes the red wolf is an ancient and distinct species, closest to the eastern timber wolf of Canada.  The group at UCLA believes the red wolf originated as hybrid of the gray wolf and coyote in the 1700s in the Southeast, and is now almost identical to the coyote.  The latter group, moreover, has totally ignored the fact, as I explained above and in the attached, that there is absolutely no evidence the gray wolf and coyote were present in the Southeast at that time.  What we really need is a new series of studies by unbiased parties, in which morphological and molecular assessment would be carefully coordinated. 

I hope the above is helpful to you.  Please let me know if I can be of further help.  Good luck with your article.

Subject: Red Wolf Research

Mr. Nowak,

Currently, I am working on an article that will be published by Citizens Science, it discusses the evolution of the red wolf recovery program from inception to modern day.  I understand you may have significant knowledge of this program.  Specifically if you can expand on the below questions as I would like to cover this in the pending article.

Historic Range seemed to change in 1979, what prompted this change?

What conclusive evidence is documented to conclude North Carolina was within the red wolfs historic range limits?

Was the expanded 1979 historic range map peer reviewed and by whom?

FWS listing of the red wolf seems to be based on your work and examination of a large number of skulls and body measurements, the Endangered Species Act states the "best most available" science must be used in evaluating a species listing.  Specifically, with the advances in science from 1971 to 1995, are measurements or DNA the "best most available" science and why?

Thank you so much and I look forward to you're reply -

Lynn - Every Red Wolf Coalition (RWC) "Donor" should know Neil Hutt (Chairman) and her RWC use Donor Funds to:

1) Advocate 
2) Lobby
3) Sue

All to "Expand" the use of Cruel Steel Leg-Hold Traps on Public Refuge Lands leading to the "Drowning" of Endangered Red Wolves! (Official FWS Mortality Data)

Red Wolf Donor's should NOT allow Neil Hutt & the RWC Board Members to Lie and Suppress their selfish quest to Eradicate Newborn Denning Pups and Expand Leg-Hold Trapping! 

Neil Hutt, you should immediately "Come Clean" and disclose your "Pup Eradication Agenda" to all... 

This must STOP, including Neil Hutt allowing the RWC to Pay for Steel Leg-Hold Trapping!! (see RWC tax return) below!

I don't know where, on the refuge or private land but the biologist told me they have had wolves drown when they drug the anchors in canals. Someone is lying. If the wolf is to stay, steal leg hold trap have to be used to catch the coyotes so they can be made sterile(not fair for the coyote),pups little heads bashed with a hammer and the wolves have to be caught from time to time for health checks.

Could an announcement be looming from "Ranking" Members of Congress that would signal a Full Congressional "Oversight" Investigation into the largest ESA Fraud in United States History?

If Citizens Science's sources are correct stay tuned, we understand this could have massive repercussions on DOI / FWS  appropriation funding...

Perhaps, this is the reason USFWS may have "Kicked" the can on releasing its decision and terminating the Red Wolf Program?

Sources close to the situation report, this will hardly signal the end...  As fundraising practices and schemes are being looked into...

Of course, no good Fraud should go "Untold"...  Thus...   Stay "Tuned"...

Subject: "Presumed Presence" Court Ruling - Paralyzes USFWS $34M "Invasive" Red Wolf Program

Mr. Williams,

Wanted to ensure you are given the response provided by Ron Nowak (below) when questioned on "Historic Range" relating to the Red Wolf.

Specifically, given the courts clear decisions (AZ Cattleman / Pygmy Owl) ruling, did WMI advise USFWS of Mr. Nowak's admission stating;

Nowak quote - "It would be very difficult to prove conclusively, to everyone's satisfaction, that the red wolf historically occurred in North Carolina."

When you connect the following 5 elements

1) Nowak Lack of Historic Range Admission
2) Court Decision / Pygmy Owl 
3) Presumed Presence 
4) 1972 Official Historic Range Map
5)  Hours of personal conversations, as recently as just last night with the Author of the 1972 Historic Range Map (below).

These elements therefore define the USFWS Red Wolf Program as invasive, non-native and contrary to the courts ruling within North Carolina.

Please advise if FWS has been formally informed by WMI of the red wolfs lack of "presumption of presence" within the bounds of North Carolina and Ron Nowak's admission of such.

I would expect reporting back to USFWS is within your / WMI scope and Historic Range Contract awarded to WMI by FWS.

Again - "Presumed Range" & "Pigmy Owl" defines the pending decision for USFWS on the Red Wolf program here in NC.

Of course if Nowak was ok "Inventing" the Red Wolf we should "Presume" he'd be ok "Inventing" it's "Presumed Range" too...

Subject: Re: Red Wolf Research


I will be glad to try to help with your article.  I'm not sure how much detail you need, but will provide some basic answers to your questions, and you can let me know if you want additional information.

Your reference to a change in the historic range of the red wolf in 1979 probably relates to my publication that year ("North American Quaternary Canis," Monograph of the Museum of Natural History, University of Kansas, Number 6), in which I suggested that, based on a number of early specimens, the original distribution of the species extended farther up the east coast than previously believed.  Since then I actually have extended the range even farther north; the attached publication covers this matter in detail.

It would be very difficult to prove conclusively, to everyone's satisfaction, that the red wolf historically occurred in North Carolina. 

That is because so few early eastern specimens have been preserved or discovered.  Although there are numerous historical records showing that wolves lived in the state, the descriptive information provided is not sufficient to positively identify the species involved.  Our understanding that the red wolf occupied the state is based more on biogeographical logic.  As indicated in the attached publication, there are quite a few early specimens of wild Canis from the Southeast in general.  Every one of those specimens, with sufficient components to analyze, was assessed in the study.  There are no other specimens.  All of those specimens throughout the Southeast, dating from around 10,000 to 100 years ago, were consistent in characters and appeared to represent a single species---the red wolf (Canis rufus).  There was no evidence that either the gray wolf
(Canis lupus) or the coyote (Canis latrans) was present at that time.  The specimens included a sufficient number of complete skulls to statistically characterize the red wolf and to show that it did not statistically overlap with large series of gray wolves and coyotes.

There is a physical specimen from North Carolina, as reported in the attached (pages 97, 110, 129). It is a maxillary fragment containing two important teeth---the fourth premolar and the first molar.  The specimen is held by the North Carolina State University Department of Zoology. It is from the Franklin Site, Macon County, dating from about 300 years ago.  The size of the teeth is within the range shown by the seven other known maxillary fragments of wild Canis from archeological sites east of the Mississippi (dates 2000–200 BP). It is also within the range of the same teeth in eight complete, mostly modern skulls from east of the Mississippi and that I consider to be the statistical foundation of Canis rufus.  Unfortunately, simply measuring those two teeth does not by itself allow clear separation from Canis lupus. However, multivariate statistical analysis does allow clear separation of the complete early eastern skulls from C. lupus.  The fact that the earlier fragmentary material from the same region shows the same range of measurements as in the complete skulls, which are clearly separable from C. lupus, is good evidence that the fragments also represent C. rufus.  Again, remember that we have no definite specimens of C. lupus from anywhere in the Southeast.

Also, as noted in the attached, there are early complete skulls of the red wolf known from several states close to North Carolina, specifically Florida, Pennsylvania, and Alabama.  Two Alabama skulls are from sites within 100 miles of the North Carolina border.  There are no gray wolf skulls, or coyote skulls, dating from 10,000 to 100 years ago, from anywhere near North Carolina.  The closest definite records of the gray wolf are from Michigan and Oklahoma.

My 1979 publication was a version of my Ph.D. dissertation, which, as best as I can recall, was reviewed by five professors expert in the fields of mammalogy (E. Raymond Hall, Robert S. Hoffmann), canid taxonomy (Robert M. Mengle), paleontology (Craig C. Black), and statistical analysis (Peter M. Neely).  There were further reviews when the manuscript was submitted for publication, one by Barbara Lawrence of Harvard University, an authority on canid taxonomy and paleontology. 
 
The original listing of the red wolf as an endangered species was based primarily on my assembly of historical and field data, and available taxonomic literature, which I submitted to FWS in the early 1960s.  My report was followed up by field and taxonomic study by an FWS biologist, John Paradiso, and by other investigations which led to the listing.  I did not myself begin to make extensive examination and measurement of large numbers of skulls until 1968-1969.  My studies did contribute to development and maintenance of conservation measures by FWS. 

Finally, you seem to want my opinion as to whether measurements/statistical analysis or molecular assessment/DNA analysis represent the best available scientific evidence for classifying the red wolf as an endangered species.  This of course involves extensive controversy that has been going on now for a quarter century.  My own experience is limited to morphology and statistical analysis of measurements.  I believe molecular work has great potential for the future, but that so far it has not proved fully reliable.  There has been considerable contradictory work with respect to canids and a number of other mammals, such as the Florida manatee and African elephant.  I need only point out that the two major teams that have employed molecular analysis to study the red wolf have come to diametrically opposite conclusions. The group at Trent University believes the red wolf is an ancient and distinct species, closest to the eastern timber wolf of Canada.  The group at UCLA believes the red wolf originated as hybrid of the gray wolf and coyote in the 1700s in the Southeast, and is now almost identical to the coyote.  The latter group, moreover, has totally ignored the fact, as I explained above and in the attached, that there is absolutely no evidence the gray wolf and coyote were present in the Southeast at that time.  What we really need is a new series of studies by unbiased parties, in which morphological and molecular assessment would be carefully coordinated. 

I hope the above is helpful to you.  Please let me know if I can be of further help.  Good luck with your article.

Subject: Red Wolf Research

Mr. Nowak,

Currently, I am working on an article that will be published by Citizens Science, it discusses the evolution of the red wolf recovery program from inception to modern day.  I understand you may have significant knowledge of this program.  Specifically if you can expand on the below questions as I would like to cover this in the pending article.

Historic Range seemed to change in 1979, what prompted this change?

What conclusive evidence is documented to conclude North Carolina was within the red wolfs historic range limits?

Was the expanded 1979 historic range map peer reviewed and by whom?

FWS listing of the red wolf seems to be based on your work and examination of a large number of skulls and body measurements, the Endangered Species Act states the "best most available" science must be used in evaluating a species listing.  Specifically, with the advances in science from 1971 to 1995, are measurements or DNA the "best most available" science and why?

Thank you so much and I look forward to you're reply -



There is not one single stitch of "conclusive" evidence present, thus the USFWS has "Presumed" the Presence of the Red Wolf.

The courts have clearly ruled on this issue as stated above.

This is a victory for the wolf, albeit a short-term one. It's certainly better than the alternative, which the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission—on behalf of wealthy landowners who believe the wolf to be a nuisance—had been pushing. But just what will happen in the years to come is another issue—one Harrison (NC Representative) says can be solved by a new administration.

"I blame it, in large part, on the McCrory administration," she says. "But once we have a change, I think we can resolve the landowner conflict and any other issues that might come up."

To recap today's Federal Red Wolf Hearing, Judge Boyle heard arguments from both sides, stating he would rule in the coming days.

Judge Boyle ruling will be whether or not to issue an injunction to prohibiting trapping and further restrictions impacting the 1995 red wolf rules package as the we know it.

Citizens Science has in the past been highly critical of the failed NCDOJ Council provided by Attorney General Roy Cooper.

It is noteworthy that at today's Red Wolf hearing the US-DOJ Counsel seemed very, very well prepared. 

Below, may be the best line of the day...

"Government lawyer Lesley Lawrence-Hammer argued that the conservation groups can't win emergency intervention because they've failed to show how they're harmed when wolves are removed from private land."

"What harms do plaintiffs face here?" she asked. "Plaintiffs have no right to see, hear or enjoy wolves on private land."

Worlds leading Wolf Experts on the "Hybrid" Red Wolf...


David Mech,  USGS, Wolf Expert and Senior Research Scientist for U.S. Department of Interior (since 1970), Notable Quotes -

"Into this heated conflict stepped David Mech, one of the worlds leading wolf experts."  "In 1989, at a meeting of experts on wolf biology, Mech challenged his fellow researchers to tell him how they could justify spending so much money rescuing the red wolf when it might not even be a species." Pg 397 Asking about Life (Book)


USFWS, Zoologist Ronald Nowalk (retired) and Red Wolf Scientist, Notable Quotes -

"A recovery program, led by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service pursuant to the U.S. Endangered Species Act, has involved location and breeding of animals as close as possible to the original red wolf." Nowalk et al 1995; Morse 1996

"The wolves of North America are under a severe new threat from an influential group; not the lumber companies, fur trappers, or stockmen, but the soloist, or at least some among them who are keen to public claims that the wolf populations have hybridized with other species." "These scientist are unwittingly playing into the hands of certain commercial interest, which will seize upon any suggestion that a species is no longer taxonomically valid in order to argue that conservation efforts are not warranted and that the species and its habitat may be exploited." Hybridization: the Double-edged Threat by Ron Nowak

"Based on an analyst of mitochondrial DNA, Wayne and Jenks (1991) went well beyond the long-reconized view that the red wolf and coyote had interbred." "They suggested that C. rufus actually originated as a hybrid and had never been a valid species or subspecies." (Emphis added) Hybridization: the Double-edged Threat by Ron Nowak

"Their study was simultaneously utilized by Gittlemnan and Pimm (1991) to criticize efforts being made to reintroduce the red wolf in the wild." Hybridization: the Double-edged Threat by Ron Nowak

"Nowak discussed the issue of reticulate patters as being natural." "It may be difficult to save something, the red wolf that might not be considered natural." 1999 PHVA Minutes

"He described the movement of coyotes across the country and argued that we no longer had true red wolves or true coyotes --- they are part coyote/wolves and red wolf/coyote." 1999 PHVA Minutes

"Regardless, he thought we should save the current population in a wildlife area as a national monument." 1999 PHVA Minutes


UCLA Geneticist Dr. Robert Wayne, Notable Quotes -

"We disagree strongly with the statement by Nowak and Federoff that 'If the red wolf did not exist, we would have to invent it'." Wayne response paper to Nowak / Federoff "Origin of the Red Wolf"

"The issue of whether the red wolf was ancestral to either coyote or gray wolf is a red herring; it is simply not relevant." Wayne response paper to Nowak / Federoff "Origin of the Red Wolf"

"Some discussion took place concerning the likelihood or reaching a resolution concerning the evolutionary origins of red wolves." "Bob (Robert) Wayne argued for avoiding discussion of the question of red wolf origins out of deference for restoring red wolves, because elucidation of origins is intractable." (Great Emphasis added) 1999 PHVA Minutes

E.lu.ci.da.tion, Explanation that makes something clear; clarification.

In.trac.table, Hard to control or deal with.

"Wayne's genetic (hybrid) data proved to be an embarrassment to the USFWS, which had poured millions of dollars into the reintroduction program in the belief that the red wolf was a unique and endangered species."  Pg 399 Asking about Life (Book)

"To protect the red wolf, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service began pressuring Wayne to avoid the word "Hybrid" in his research papers and to substitute the term "Intergrade Species" and other similar phrases."  Pg 399 Asking about Life (Book)

"By 1994, it was clear however, that the red wolf was NOT a species engaging in "limited genetic exchange" with other species." Pg 399 Asking about Life (Book)


UGA Professor Dr. Michael Chamberlin, Notable Quotes -

Wayne and Jenks (1991) evaluated the genetic integrity of the source population from which the founders of the red wolf captive-breeding program were selected." S. M. Chambers et. al

"These animals were characterized morphologically as coyotes (58%), C. rufus-coyote hybrids (31%), and C rufus (11%)." S. M. Chambers et. al

"Genetic characterization of these same animals with whole mtDNA genome restriction analysis found that they exhibited either coyote (84%) or gray wolf (16%) mtDNA and that the morphological and genetic classifications often did not correspond." S. M. Chambers et. Al

For those following this for any length of time will appreciate the following.  Just as the plaintiffs attempted by suing the NC Wildlife Resources Commission in a misguided effort to erode the rights and privileges afforded to private citizens and landowners alike, by negotiating each away without the principle even present.

Until the Equal Access to Justice Act is fully rewritten to prohibit Big NOT For Profit companies like the Defenders of Wildlife, Animal Welfare Institute and the Red Wolf Coalition from extorting a provision of law, intended to allow the little guy a louder voice the erosion of rights and privileges will continue!

ENDANGERED SPECIES:
Panel to tackle thorny issue of federal wolf management
Scott Streater, E&E reporter
Published: Monday, September 19, 2016

A House panel on Wednesday will examine the management of wild populations of wolves nationwide, and whether federal actions and litigation from environmental groups are hampering recovery efforts.

The Natural Resources Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations will touch on the management of red wolves, gray wolves and Mexican wolves. But sources said the hearing will focus a great deal of attention on the Fish and Wildlife Service's controversial red wolf recovery effort.

FWS last week proposed to significantly reduce the area where red wolves can roam from five counties to less than one and to require the recapture of many of the 45 wolves remaining in the wild. The decision drew fire from conservation groups and Rep. Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.), the full committee's ranking member (E&ENews PM, Sept. 12).
Democrats are expected to grill Steve Guertin, FWS's deputy director for policy, on the decision, which critics say effectively scales back the decadeslong red wolf recovery program.

Gordon Myers, who directs the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission, is also expected to testify on the red wolf issue.

The subcommittee is also expected to examine a host of other issues that have been flashpoints for GOP lawmakers in recent years, including the difficulty removing wolf populations from Endangered Species Act protection, and the role litigation plays.

FWS has tried three times to remove some gray wolf populations from the endangered list. The most recent attempt, which was overturned by a federal court two years ago, argued that gray wolves in the Great Lakes region had recovered in part by interbreeding with what was then believed to be a separate eastern wolf species (Greenwire, Dec. 22, 2014).
That 2014 delisting decision enjoyed broad support from regional politicians and environmental groups, including the Natural Resources Defense Council, Defenders of Wildlife and the National Wildlife Federation.

House Republicans successfully added amendments to the chamber's Interior Department fiscal 2017 spending bill that would stop FWS from treating the gray wolf as an endangered or threatened species in the continental United States after next June (E&ENews PM, July 14).
Similar delisting language appeared in both the House and Senate spending bills for fiscal 2016, though both were removed from the year-end omnibus spending package. The same is expected in the overall spending package this year.

Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead (R), who made ESA reform his top initiative while serving until June as chairman of the Western Governors' Association, supported congressional action to delist wolves and restore state authority to manage wolf hunts.

Giving states control of managing wolf populations has been a top issue for GOP lawmakers.

In Arizona, which is one of only two states where the Mexican wolf is found, Republican Sens. Jeff Flake and John McCain filed legislation (S. 2876) last spring that, among other things, would set a process for state wildlife officials to assume authority of recovery efforts, though only under certain conditions (Greenwire, April 29).
McCain argued at the time that state wildlife agencies could recover the wolf more cheaply and effectively than FWS.

Republicans lawmakers have argued that federal protection laws hamper the ability of states to control wolf populations and protect ranchers and other landowners trying to raise livestock and other animals.

Predation from wolves is often cited as a reason for the need to limit wolf populations through hunting and trapping.

But wolf population controls have historically resulted in widespread killing and trapping of wolves. In the case of red wolves, which were once found in abundance throughout the Southwest, FWS declared them extinct in the wild in the 1980s due to intensive predator control programs and loss of habitat.

The Agriculture Department's Wildlife Services program, which is tasked with destroying animals that are deemed a threat to crops and livestock, has been accused by environmental groups of unnecessarily killing gray wolves in Idaho without analyzing the full ecological impacts.

Virgil Moore, director of the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, is among the witnesses expected to address efforts to control wolf populations, and the impacts of not doing so on other species, including elk.

Moore two years ago was heavily criticized by wolf advocates for his department's decision to hire a hunter-trapper to kill two packs of wolves within the remote Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness in an effort to increase elk populations.

Moore defended the state's plan in a 2014 opinion piece in the Idaho Statesman.
"Part of keeping wolves in Idaho is managing them to reduce conflicts," he wrote (Greenwire, Jan. 8, 2014).
But Idaho later canceled the plan after the hunter the state hired killed nine wolves, sparking a firestorm of criticism from wolf and wilderness advocates that garnered national headlines.

Schedule: The hearing is Wednesday, Sept. 21, at 2 p.m. in 1334 Longworth.
Witnesses: Steve Guertin, deputy director for policy, Fish and Wildlife Service; Virgil Moore, director, Idaho Department of Fish and Game; Gordon Myers, director, North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission; Tom Paterson, owner, Spur Ranch Cattle Co. in Luna, N.M.; Alexandra Sandoval, director, New Mexico Department of Game and Fish; and John Vucetich, associate professor, Michigan Technological University's School of Forest Resources and Environmental Science.

While Ms. Clarkson is to be commended on such an impressive resume, specifically in "Law"... 

Yet, Ms. Clarkson fails to acknowledge the "Illegal" Wolves on private lands, she fails to acknowledge Defenders own VP's 1983 "Hybrid" Opinion stating affording protection to Hybrid Red Wolves is not in harmony of Congresses intent of preserving a species genetics.

If Defenders of Wildlife was as good at ESA Law as they were at soliciting $800k in "Net Zero" Donor Funds (NCSOS filing) we wouldn't have this issue.

Defenders should not pressure an employee with such credentials to peddle their mistruths, compromising their employees integrity all to "Fund" Jamie Rappaport Clarks nearly 1/2 A Million Dollar Salary!

It's time for the Defenders Of Wildlife's board to lasso their leadership, press the purge valve and attempt to restore Defenders of Wildlife to a creditable conservation organization it may have once been!

** I am of the opinion the below is work of Defenders of Wildlife and NOT Ms. Clarkson...


By  Heather Clarkson

Last week, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service released its plan for the future of the red wolf recovery program in North Carolina. Rather than confront the real challenges facing the effort to recover the world’s most endangered wolf species, FWS instead presented a roadmap for a disastrous retreat, announcing that it was going to try to save red wolves by pulling them out of the wild and forcing them into captivity.

The agency made a vague promise to look for new areas where red wolves could be released and work with stakeholders on future recovery efforts. However, FWS is paying lip service to wolf recovery if all it’s really going to do is relegate red wolves to spending the rest of their lives in zoos.

It’s been two years since FWS has actively managed red wolf recovery in North Carolina, but we were still stunned to see it all but abandon the program. The announcement was especially tone-deaf in light of the overwhelming public support for recovering red wolves in North Carolina, as a recent poll showed that over 80 percent of North Carolinians say the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service should do everything it can to recover the red wolf and prevent its extinction.

FWS argues that this plan will help enhance the genetic diversity of the captive red wolf population and that additional resources will be allocated to captive breeding programs to double the number of breeding red wolf pairs in facilities across the country. This is just a red herring. The captive red wolf population is not in danger, at least not to the extent that the FWS would have us believe. The wild population is, however. A successful species recovery and reintroduction program uses captive-bred animals to bolster the wild population – not the other way around. Capturing wild red wolves, transferring them to zoos and captivity is immensely stressful and can be deadly for these wild creatures. To claim that doing so is in the wolves’ best interest is disingenuous.

Only about 45 wild red wolves remain in the recovery area. If FWS has its way, most of these wolves will be rounded up and put into captivity, leaving barely enough space for two remaining packs to survive in the wild on one single refuge and a bombing range.


Once, red wolves roamed the entire Southeastern United States. Thirty years ago, they were released into the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge and given five counties – 1.7 million acres – of habitat to rekindle their devastated population. The new proposal, however, would strip these animals of nearly 90 percent of that habitat. They would be restricted to a meager 200,000 acres of federal land, and the wolves that don’t fit will simply be removed.

Conservation advocates in North Carolina aren’t taking this decision lying down. Defenders of Wildlife is fighting in the courts to stop the removal of red wolves from private property at landowner request, and when the public comment period opens for FWS’ disastrous proposal to remove red wolves from the wild, Defenders of Wildlife and our conservation allies will be organizing red wolf supporters to stand up for their native wolf.

The shock and disappointment following this decision from FWS beg the question: why? Why would a federal agency, charged with conserving and protecting our nation’s endangered species, walk away from one of the most critically endangered creatures in our country? Why would this agency fold to political pressure for years on end? Why is the FWS kicking the can down the road, right when the species needs its support and recommitment to survive in the wild?

We are left shaking our heads in disbelief, while we regroup and reorganize our own efforts to reflect on the inadequacies of the FWS’s ill-conceived proposal. Those of us who support the wild red wolf will not be daunted – we will continue to stand up, speak out, and work tirelessly for the future of this species.

After years of the Red Wolf Coalition profiting off their trusting donors under the disguise of advocating for the Red Wolf they've been advocating to expand the dispatching of nursing pups... Neither the Director Ms. Hutt nor their Chair Ms. Wheeler were in attendance... 

Perhaps they're waiting to attend the Pup Eradication Hearing so they can address how exterminating coyote pups affects compensatory breeding and helps manage hybridization.

Private Landowner Jett Ferebee was in attendance...

“Before we do anything more in North Carolina, I think it makes the most sense to shut the program down to figure out how to do it right and build some credibility with the landowners,” said Senator Tillis during today’s committee hearing.

"There is a less than respectful history of dialogue between folks in North Carolina and the Fish and Wildlife Service. This is going to be an issue my office will be focused on for as long as I’m a U.S. Senator.”

Red Wolf Coalition on Curtis Carly, the original Red Wolf Coordinator whom was charged with using the best science (1970's).

Let's look to Mr. Carly's own statement from 1979... 

Next let's look at the false narrative being peddled by the Red Wolf Coalition and its "No-Show" Benefactor's!

I am very disappointed Congressman Jones apparently chose not to attend today's Congressional House Oversight Hearing on the illegal Red Wolf Introduction.

It's noteworthy that members of Congress in both the Senate & House are now having to address the failure of this Illegal Red Wolf program that continues to operate outside of the bounds of the ESA and squarely in Congressman Jones district.

Specifically, Congressman Jones has allowed USFWS to bankrupt its own captive breeding program by illegally removing and releasing over 120 Red Wolves from the captive breeding program, while only having Federal Authority to release NO more than 12 Wolves in the wild. 

For that reason Congressman Jones bears great burden in the total failure of the $35M Red Wolf Program.

What a sad day for the private landowners and voters in Walters very neighborhood and district alike.

Additionally, our own Governor and Ag Commissioner have had to visit the Ferebee Land to take action on Walters behalf.  This after total inaction from a Congressman whom has totally forgotten whom he serves.

I continue to feel Congressman Jones entered into the Red Wolf Program with nobel intentions, however allowed the Red Wolf Coalition to totally hoodwink him and in my view totally used the Congressman to gain their federal funds.

Let us know

Retired USFWS Deputy Chief of Law Enforcement, Gary Mowad told Fox News:

"This is a case of well-intentioned biologists going back several decades, trying to bring back a species they believe existed."

"But it turns out now the science clearly indicates red wolves from the very beginning were nothing more than a hybrid between a coyote and a grey wolf."

"This animal is not an endangered species."

"This animal is a hybrid and should be delisted immediately."

Just because it's the right thing to do... 

What happens with those private landowners whom were wrongfully charged by USFWS for shooting a Red Wolf and were forced to spend many tens of thousands defending themselves against shooting an unprotected hybrid that USFWS spent $150k to learn today's contemporary Red Wolf was selectively bred and a product of human construct?

Well...  If we're allowing DNA to clear those innocent Americans awaiting on death row...  It only seems that the USFWS has a bigger pill to swallow...

Expunging the record of these private landowners, reimburse each for their defense expense via Tort complaint.

Most interesting this likely gets the case assigned to a court outside of Judge Boyle's courtroom.  Could this bring the landmark case of Gibbs / Babbitt into play??

Just when you thought USFWS was having trouble swallowing delisting this Faux Invented Canid, how do you think being forced to "Cut a Check" to innocent landowners will taste to USFWS?

Stay tuned, much more coming!

Title: Re: Red Wolf Scandal
Post by: citizensscience on September 25, 2016, 12:20:27 AM
Let's assess the below question and apply FWS / DOJ Official "Policy"...

(Assumption) - Private Landowner shoots what's ends up being an Endangered Red Wolf... Now what?

Should the Private Landowner spend funds on defense council?  Not so fast...

In today's world, Google can serve as a well informed defense, you see it's been well documented that USFWS's own Staff "Mistakenly" Dispatched 7 Litters of Newborn Red Wolf Litters in error and even "Mistakenly" Sterilized 3 mature Red Wolves.

Why did this occur?  Simple, you see USFWS's Red Wolf Staff did not "Knowingly Know" of the "Genetic Identity" of these 38 +\- Red Wolves that were mistakenly "Taken" (Killed).


Why are there NEVER any charges filed after USFWS sends out a news release??

The Justice Department "will not charge or prosecute individuals for the illegal killing of ESA-listed species unless the government can prove that the defendant "Knowingly Knew" the biological identity of the animal he / she took at the time of taking!

Why -- The McKittrick Policy!!!!

The policy stems from the prosecution of Chad McKittrick, who was sentenced to 6 months for killing a gray wolf in Montana.
McKittrick testified at trial that "he thought that the animal he killed was a rabid dog, and offered this 'mistaken identity' argument as a defense to the ESA illegal take count," the complaint states.

McKittrick appealed his conviction to the 9th Circuit, which rejected his "argument that establishing a criminal violation of the ESA arising from illegal take requires proof that the defendant "Knowingly Knew" the biological identity of the species he killed at the time he killed it," according to the complaint.

McKittrick appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The U.S. Solicitor General disagreed with the 9th Circuit and "submitted a responsive brief to the Supreme Court in which he stated that the 9th Circuit had misapplied the law regarding the degree of intent required to establish a criminal violation of ESA Section 9 arising from illegal take, according to the complaint. "The Solicitor's response to the certiorari petition also stated that DOJ would no longer utilize a jury instruction which instructed the jury that the government need not prove that the defendant knew the biological identity of an animal that he killed in order to establish criminal liability under the ESA."

Fast Foward to Today...

"Post-Problematic Review" and "Biological Identity"

To further illustrate how the genetic make-up (Biological Identity) of the red wolves is open to serious questions, in the peer review section of the report the former head of the red wolf project in North Carolina, Mike Phillips, states, “It should be clearly noted in the report that the red wolf genome that exists is the product of selective breeding by U.S. Fish and Wildlife (USFWS) biologists in the 1970s.

There is no denying that the existing red wolf genome (Biological Identity) is something of a human construct. Given Congress’ clear intent for the 1973 ESA to serve to conserve genetics, a clear understanding of the origins of the red wolf genome is of cardinal importance”.

Things are much clearer now given the "High" Courts Ruling and admission of "Human Construct"!!!

So if the "Experts" dont even know about the "Biological Identity" of their $35+ Million Dollar "Invented" Red Wolf, leading to the very "Red Wolf Experts" Killing 7 Entire Litters Endangered Invented Red Wolves it may be safe to assume the courts will not hold a citizen to a higher standard?

I was thinking from a business standpoint, say it cost $250k to sue USFWS and carry the case through the appellate courts, the cheaper way to end the program is to do just that... Shoot one.  (Hybrids are not Protected)

While I'd never advocate for anyone not obeying the law by shooting a Red Wolf, it seem if they go Hybrid Hunting there is nothing prohibiting that on the books.

Frankly, when USFWS own Deputy Chief of Law Enforcement (Retired) stated all Red Wolves are Hybrids and should be delisted immediately, that kinda ended the program in one sentence itself!

It's noteworthy NO delist petition is needed as USFWS is bound to apply the best most commercially available science and then delist via "Taxonomy Correction".

The longer Fish waits to do their job the worse it gets for them not to mention the Refuge Staff...

At this point with Fish not budging I see things going from bad to worse. 

The good news for Private Landowners, Family Farmers, Hunter's and Anglers this Hybrid Fraud will soon serve to restore our historical privilege of taking coyotes on Private Lands without permit, taking our beaches back by restoring responsible vehicular traffic via Incidental Take Permit (ITP).

If anyone doubts, trust me here... just watch...

No resident of any state should sit complacent and allow these misguided NGO's to enter our state,  bilk our citizens out of money (donations) to fund their CEO's nearly 1/2 Million $$ Salaries!

These misguided NGO's such as the Animal Welfare Institute & Defenders of Wildlife can thank The Red Wolf Coalition and their past Board Member Dr. David Rabon for where we are and where we're headed.  Simply removing the Red Wolf is NOT the end as much work is ongoing to restore North Carolina to its state of pre-NGO contamination.

What the "Invented" Hybrid Red Wolf means to every taxpayer...


"Rates for big law partners in major cities can be insanely high (like $850/hour), and we've always tried to stay in the reasonable range," said John Buse, legal director for the Center for Biological Diversity.

"So charging taxpayers as much as $400 an hour is really a bargain, if you think about it."

Even in cases where the litigation is done in-house, the groups sometimes charge similar rates.

"Our lawyers need to get paid for their time," said Ya-Wei Li, an attorney with Defenders of Wildlife.

Ms. Cynthia K. Dohner
Director, Southeast Region
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
1875 Century Blvd.
Atlanta, GA 30345


Dear Ms. Dohner,


North Carolina Farm Bureau (NCFB), with a membership of over 500,000 families, represents farmers and other landowners across the state who are in constant interaction with wildlife of all types. NCFB has strong policy established by its members to not only protect members’ property and livestock from predators within the rules and regulations of the NC Wildlife Resources Commission, but also to uphold all state and federal wildlife protection rules. The recent ruling by federal district Judge Terrance Boyle in eastern North Carolina to temporarily prohibit coyote hunting removes an important tool for our members to protect themselves and their property from physical and economic harm. As you know, the ruling came as a result of several wildlife advocacy groups filing suit against the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission and individual Commission members. Evidently, the Red Wolf Recovery Plan in that area has allowed red wolves and coyotes to interbreed, creating a hybrid animal that is difficult, if not impossible, to distinguish its identity-- red wolf and coyote alike. This comes as no surprise to those of us who submitted comments in 1986, including NCFB and the American Farm Bureau Federation, who opposed the reintroduction of the red wolf into the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge, on the basis of farmer and other land owner’s rights to protect themselves, their families, and their property against wildlife threats. Adverse consequences we anticipated back then have come to pass.


We are asking USFWS to: 1) uphold the rules established by the Service in 1995, namely to manage the red wolf population on public land, and to remove any unwanted wolves on private property at the request of the landowner, 2) discontinue any efforts to sterilize coyotes and place them within presumed red wolf populations as this only introduces more known predators that are a threat to people and property, and 3) to seriously evaluate the effectiveness of the Red Wolf Recovery Plan in North Carolina, both in terms of success/failure of the intended goals to establish self-sustaining red wolf populations on PUBLIC LANDS, and the cost/benefit of the program to date.


The NCFB has always supported the work of our state and federal wildlife agencies to carry out the critically needed management of wildlife populations, and to protect private property rights of all NC citizens. We urge you to strongly consider the points we bring to your attention and await your response.


Sincerely,


Larry B. Wooten, President
North Carolina Farm Bureau

Sorting out the Genetic Bankruptcy at Point Defiance Zoo and the burden placed on American Taxpayers from years of funding their Hybrid Wolf Mill.

An additional $150k of taxpayers funds were expended only to have the Wildlife Management Institute report "There is no denying today's Red Wolf is a product of Selective Breeding and Human Construct".

Or in simple terms and to quote Ron Nowak "Invented"!

To begin, this failure occurred while Dan Ashe served as the Director of USFWS.

We now learn Director Ashe is leaving his post to assume the top position at Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA).

Citizens Science.org reports the AZA is charged with overseeing all Captive Species Survival Programs (SSP).  With the Red Wolf Captive Breeding Program being touted as a huge success is nothing short of a CEO fraudulently touting a company's stock while its "Genetic" Stability plummets.


(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20160928%2F6e3b070af6b3fc2cd4dba4c19b1f52e8.png&hash=83d2acbf8ffeda037d9cf5a0c0001465)


Unfortunately, suppression of the genetic facts (Studbook) by the Point Defiance Zoo and the SSP appears to have gone mostly unnoticed.  However the careful eye of Citizens Science.org long ago questioned why Mr. Waddell and his Point Defiance Zoo (Captive Wolf Mill) deliberately removed the genetic purity of the wild population from its long running listing within the PDZ / AZA Studbook publication?

This ultimately leaving its American Stockholders (Taxpayers) holding a bankrupt bag of "Invented" Genetics!

In summary, the total failure and further alleged suppression of these facts falls directly on the shoulders of:

1) Mr. Will Waddell - Proprietor of PDZ Captive Wolf Mill

2) Dan Ashe, Director USFWS

3) James Maddy, CEO Association of Zoos & Aquariums  (Species Survival Program SSP)


Clearly, it appears, NO check and balance protocols were employed nor apparently a regular genetic audit occurred while the glowing misdeeds continued.

Mr. Maddy was rewarded handsomely for his lack of leadership and oversight by his "Not for Profit" Donors, compensating him $644,894 while he allowing the captive Red Wolf Population to reach insolvency.

With, AZA's 2013 Tax Return illustrating its President & CEO earning a whopping $644,894, Director Dan Ashe has certainly landed quite the lucrative position.

Could this $uggest why the USFWS abruptly announced it will recapture remaining wild red wolves and Fed-Ex them back to their Historic Range, 2800 miles west, where these genetically modified wolves will be enrolled and become assets of the Genetically Insolvent Point Defiance Zoo / SSP?

Perhaps this was all well planned between the AZA and Director Ashe???

Suggesting a large funnel of additional federal grants would be directed to the AZA thus continuing to waste taxpayer funds on an Invented Hybrid that enjoys NO Endangered Status?

Should Citizens call "Foul" when Donors are funding a Zoo Keepers $644k Salary?

One thing is for sure many continue to get rich on the backs of Donors and the profitable fundraising scheme's carried out under the veil of "conservation".

It certainly "Pays" to be a Wolf Pimp...

Via National Livestock Weekly -

"Agency is Red Handed with Red Wolves"

But did you hear about the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s (USFWS’) illegal red wolf antics? Last week, at a House subcommittee hearing on federal wolf management, Rep. Bruce Westerman (R-AR4) asked questions related to the USFWS’ handling of the red wolf program in North Carolina. The following transcript is illuminating:

Westerman: Are releases of red wolves allowed on private property in North Carolina?

Gordon Myers (Director of the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission): Congressman, under the federal rules that were promulgated by the Fish and Wildlife Service, releases were only to occur on federal lands.

Westerman: Mr. Geurtin... Did your agency release wolves onto private property in North Carolina in violation of both state and federal requirements?

Steve Guertin (USFWS Deputy Director of Policy): Yes, Congressman.

Today’s court ruling nullifies the very “Intent” of the 10-J Non-Essential Population (NEP) designation within the eyes of Americas Private Landowners. 

The NEP was once hailed as a “Flexible” alternative, allowing the USFWS to accommodate broad interest across America.  With nearly 90% of all endangered species residing on Private Lands today injunction handed down by Judge Terrance Boyle is a shot of reality in just how far case law has drifted allowing for such a ruling.

10-J NEP “Intent & Purpose” of Congress -

Re-Establishing a threatened or endangered species in areas of its former range is often necessary for recovery. However, residents and businesses frequently oppose such reintroductions because they fear the presence of the species will also bring severe restrictions on the use of private and public land in the area. To overcome this serious obstacle to species reintroductions, Congress added the concept of experimental populations to the ESA. Experimental population designations are sometimes referred to as section 10(j) rules.

An experimental population is a geographically described group of reintroduced plants or animals that is isolated from other existing populations of the species. Members of the experimental population are considered to be threatened under the ESA, and thus can have special regulations (Landowner Removal Request) written for them under section 4(d). In addition, if the experimental population is determined to be "nonessential" to the survival of the species, for some activities the experimental population is treated like a species that is proposed for listing as threatened or endangered. In other words, the nonessential experimental population is not given the full protections of the ESA.

The 10-J NEP listing under the ESA can promote the recovery of declining species by fine-tuning the protections of the ESA. This fine-tuning minimizes adverse impacts on people and society while maximizing the likelihood of eventual recovery and delisting of the species. Thus, humans and rare species both benefit from their careful use.


Without question the largest looser in todays ruling to be the many ligitimate endangered species given landowners are now acutely aware that when in Federal Court, previously negotiated via rule making, agreed and published Federal Rules have “NO” Merit.

Today, American Landowners witnessed the Court “Strip” the “Non” from the 10-J Non-Essential Population Designation.

Looks like the wolf would have been much safer trapped and moved. The more the NGO's push, the worse the wolves fair. The more they push, the more wolves look like coyote and hybrids. Poor wolf! Poor wolf pimp$ when they are gone. No other wildlife draws donation$ like the wolf.

Well so far, when I look at the wolf population dynamics; the biggest threat to the red wolf in the wild used to be adaptive management but now it is the Red Wolf Coalition and their bogus law suits. Let them carry own.

Very humorous to watch these "Conservationists" at work.

USFWS just came out and said they needed to bring the illegally released private land wolves back into captivity to save the captive population. And now Judge Boyle and Red Wolf Coalition say OH NO.

See USFWS only had Section 7 approval to remove 12 wolves from the captive population but they took 132 and their just released Population Viability Study showed this illegal action has now bankrupted the captive population.

While Red Wolf Coalition and SELC are suing USFWS to leave wolves on private land where 60 out of 64 have been gun shot, Refuge Manager Howard Phillips and The Nature Conservancy are busy flooding the wolves off the protected Refuge in pursuit of an Al Gore Carbon Credit venture on a Federal refuge.

Oh it gets better.

A new DNA study just concluded the so called Red Wolf is just a hybrid coywolf (75% coyote and 25% grey wolf) and is not even protected by the ESA.

I actually may be beginning to feel a little bit sorry for this mismanaged make believe woof that is being pimped into extinction by these "Conservationist Groups" and their attorneys.

The truly sad thing is that all this nonsense is being perpetrated by grown adults using our tax dollars to pad their pockets.

It should be and likely is criminal.

A look back at the "Inventor"...

Many are likely stunned by Ronald (Ron) Nowak quote above contained within the rebuttal paper. However its what is contained in his 1997 USFWS Resignation Letter below that is really "Odd" given his quote above…

So above Mr. Nowak advocates for "Inventing" a Red Wolf (if we don't have one) and below he's having a "distressing event" from as he alleges the USFWS is not following the 1973 ESA…

Boy, O, Boy does the USFWS have big issues!!!


Ronald Nowak, USFWS "Resignation Letter" Below...


14 November 1997

To: Chief, Office of Scientific Authority, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
From: Ronald M. Nowak, Zoologist, OSA, FWS

Subject: Retirement

I have today submitted to the Division of Personnel Management an application for early retirement. If approved, I would plan to depart on the 1st day of the currently authorized period, 30 December 1997.

My primary reason for seeking this opportunity to retire is that this agency is no longer adequately supporting the function for which I was hired, the classification and *(OR THE INVENTION OF IT) protection of wildlife pursuant to the Endangered Species Act of 1973, and indeed, often is working against this function. I have become particularly concerned about the agency’s seemingly unrestrained use of public funds to carry on litigation and other actions to thwart or delay appropriate classification and regulation of species such as the lynx. It also recently was unsettling to learn that the agency is essentially supporting the destruction of the wolf in Central Asia to justify issuance of permits for American hunters to import trophies of the threatened argali sheep, which itself may be contrary to regulations. My own efforts to call attention to and mitigate these problems have failed.

Notwithstanding the above, I readily acknowledge that this and associated agencies have many dedicated employees and worthwhile programs, notably (but not limited to) those involved with wolf conservation and research.

Another factor in my application is that work-related pressures, to which I have been subject, especially within the last year, have been the cause of considerable stress and may be aggravating conditions potentially damaging to my health.

I do not want, and will not accept or participate in any party, gift, card, testimonial, or other recognition of what to me is a distressing event.

If, after retirement, my services might be useful relative to measures that would appropriately classify, protect, or study the urial sheep, koala, wolf, or any other foreign or native species, I would be glad to be of help to the extent circumstances may allow.

I ask that my home address and telephone number (see below) be given freely to parties seeking my attention or assistance. Anyone, whether in or out of this agency, is welcome to contact me at this time.

When one landowner was trapping all those canines last year, David Cobb (NCWRC)agreed to send tissue samples of the animals to Lissette Waites' lab for DNA analysis.

One sample came back as a coyote/dog hybrid. It was 76% coyote and 23% dog.

I guess the dog could have been a pit bull and this would explain the pit bull appearance of the cinder block headed coyote featured in the above USFWS "red wolf" picture.

Here is Lisette's analysis:

Species identification of individuals who are suspected to have red wolf ancestry

Final Report

4/2/14

Jennifer Adams, PhD and Lisette Waits, PhD
Laboratory for Ecological, Evolutionary and Conservation Genetics
University of Idaho


Objectives− 1) Determine the species composition of four tissue samples collected from the Albemarle Peninsula provided by Maria Palamar, Wildlife Veterinarian, North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission.

Methods
Laboratory Analysis

DNA was extracted from the tissue samples using the DNeasy Blood and Tissue Kit (Qiagen, Inc.) in a laboratory dedicated to high quality DNA samples. One negative control was included in the extraction to monitor for contamination of reagents. Microsatellite genotypes were generated for each sample using 17 loci divided into two PCR multiplexes. Multiplex one contained the following loci, AHT103, AHT121, CXX20 CXX109, CXX172, CXX173, CXX200, CXX250 and CXX377 (Ostrander et al. 1993; Holmes et al. 1995; Mellersh et al. 1997). Multiplex two contained the following loci, CXX225, CXX403, FH2001, FH2004, FH2054, FH2062, FH2010, and FH2145 (Ostrander et al. 1993, 1995; Mellersh et al. 1997). Two replicate microsatellite PCRs were performed each tissue sample. PCR products were visualized using a 3130xl DNA Sequencer (Applied Biosystems) and allele sizes were scored using Genemapper 3.7 (Applied Biosystems).

Statistical Analysis

The genetic ancestry of the samples was estimated using the Bayesian assignment test approach implemented in the software STRUCTURE 2.2 (Pritchard et al. 2000; Falush et al. 2003).

The samples were combined with genotypes from 36 dogs, 62 coyotes from North Carolina and Virginia and 121 red wolves from the wild population in North Carolina.

The number of populations (K) was set to 3 (ie. A red wolf population, coyote population and a dog population), and the percentage of ancestry (q) was estimated from each population. Program STRUCTURE 2.2 was run for 5 replicates with the admixed model of ancestry and the correlated allele frequency model with a burn-in length of 100,000 repetitions and 400,000 MCMC repetitions.

Results

DNA was successfully isolated for all four tissue samples (Table 1 and Appendix 1, attached excel spreadsheet). Results of the STRUCTURE analysis indicate that three individuals, WLC14002-WLC14004, shared ≥ 96% of their ancestry with coyotes.

The fourth individual, WLC14001, shared 23% of its ancestry with dogs and 76% of its ancestry with coyotes. All four individuals were estimated to have <1% ancestry from red wolves (Table 1), thus we found no evidence for red wolf ancestry in these samples.

"Inbreeding"

The Words of Dr. Joey Hinton

February 10, 2014

"There all (Wild Population) highly related quite a bit and its a problem" (Quote Dr. Joey Hinton)

Red wolves may be preferentially choosing coyotes as mates because other red wolves may be closely related, and wolves in general tend to avoid mating with kin. https://www.lsuagcenter.com/en/commu...nd-Mammals.htm

Dr. Hinton when asked about the (14) Founding Wolves (genetics) - "The Captive stock is well represented but not all preformed well in captivity." "It gets worse when you get in the wild, only 6 Founders are represented in the wild due to Inbreeding Effects."

"Underbites have been found in the Milltail pack." (founding pack) "There all highly related quite a bit and its a problem" (Podcast below)

GENETIC DIVERSITY IN THE WILD???

"The samples were combined with genotypes from 36 dogs, 62 coyotes from North Carolina and Virginia and 121 red wolves from the wild population in North Carolina."


(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20160930%2F92c98f56c9907aabaf8c490d02585d7d.jpg&hash=3dc4eae6d96f4f7304a8d247c8c4890a)


So apparently, based on Lissette's report, the genetic diversity of the so called "wild population" is readily available. I can only imagine why USFWS biologists have NEVER disclosed this number!


How do you spell FAILURE?

Let's just let them use their artificial base line. If you catch a '"certified" red wolf and then you catch a 50/50 hybrid, I would call that genetic diversity of the wild canid population on the Albemarle peninsula 75%.

Now with coyotes swamping the region and now comprising a huge part of a mixed canid population on the peninsula. I would surmise that if you catch a "certified" red wolf and a "certified" coyote, your genetic diversity would be 50%.

USFWS has just created one huge mess. I can assure you from a carrying capacity perspective, the State's wildlife discerns no difference between 50%, 75%, or 100% "red wolf".

We were told by USFWS the area had a carrying capacity of roughly 40 to 50 canids. We now have 1000s.

Thank you once again Director Myers and commissioners for stepping in and saving both the "wolf" and the State's wildlife. This 30 year old experiment has failed and has likely caused irreparable harm to our State's wildlife resources.

I do not believe anyone could have ever imagined that our USFWS would intentionally introduce a non native human engineered super coyote to NC. At this point, we have irrefutably disclosed this horrific fact.

I am still amazed that the NGOs and their attorneys continue to paint the picture of a "successful program" being irrationally opposed by people who have no concern for wildlife. It is in fact just the opposite and these anti hunting activists have now awoken a sleeping giant.

Great Friday Night Movie -


Endangered Species Recovery Act Committee members heard testimony on S.1180, the reauthorization for the Endangered Species Act, which has not been authorized since 1992. The bill would also reform endangered species procedures, especially in making incentives to protect them on private land and to make species recovery programs more immediate. It also mandates more public comment and scientific review of planned regulations.

No explanation is needed here, if the USFWS "Original" Red Wolf Coordinator, Curtis Carley's own "admission" clearly states, he didn't "Knowingly Know" the "Biological Identity" of the "Founders", are today's "Contemporary" Red Wolves even afforded any ESA protection given the courts / DOJ McKittrick instruction / policy?

For those not familiar, Mr. Carley was the "Selector General" and charged with the "Act" of culling (Selecting) from the best 400 Trapped Red Wolves 43 of the most Wolfi'e looking Red Wolves.

Mr. Carley, further "Acted" by culling these 43 animals down eventually, "Selecting" 14 that would makeup the founding population.

Only 12 of the founding 14 Wolfi'e looking animals ever bred...  The resulting science is damming...

Official Studbook records show the first two recorded litters born in captivity occured on May 3, 1977 and May 4, 1977 respectively...

Both litters were "Euthanized" given they were identified as hybrids!

Citizens Science performed an audit of the entire SSP studbook, our findings show the SSP Captive Breeding Program produced 81 Hybrids within the first 10 years of the program and a total of 213 Hybrids through 2013!!

By applying the most simplistic logic to the DOJ McKittrick Policy (Above) , it seems this DOJ Polocy may override any listing irregardless of USFWS wishes to list the Red Wolf as endangered.

You see as Mr. Carley, in his own words  "Acted" without "Knowingly Knowing" what he was "Selecting"...

Today's "Best" most "Commercially" Available DNA "Science" is clear and repetitive by finding, Red Wolves are 75% Coyote & 25% Gray Wolf thus by USFWS own definition are defined as Hybrids.  USFWS has issued multiple Solicitor Opinions stating, extending ESA protection to Hybrids contradicts the intent of Congress in its passage of the ESA. 

Should the DOJ's own policy prove to delist the "Hybrid" Red Wolf what effect will that have on the landmark Gibbs vs Babbitt case relating to "Interstate Commerce"?

Now this may be the best yet...

An Open Post to Judge Terrance Boyle:


Judge Boyle - The prohibition of Nighttime Coyote Take on Private Lands seems to be "Unconstitutional"(?) and Violate the Federal "Interstate Commerce" Act as defined by your Gibbs / Babbitt ruling.

(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20161001%2Fabe84caeeb7885b3ae517c6b11b1fe76.png&hash=14eed4cabf1e18163d9018c943ac2224)


Many out of state predator hunters specifically travel to North Carolina's DownEast counties given the expansive long range Night Coyote shooting opportunities which the unique landscape affords.   http://www.northcarolinapha.com

The erosion of this privilege on private land continues to financially impact DownEast Guide Services and the Defendant, North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission. 

Specifically the "Loss" of out of state license revenue given your injunction and the subsequent settlement between NCWRC and the RWC banning nighttime take of coyotes is problematic.

Additionally, it should be clearly noted USFWS Solicitor & Office of Inspector General recently reafirmed the Service only has federal authority to manage Red Wolves on Federal Lands.  Combined PLNWR, ARNWR and the Dare Co. Bombing Range make up the "Federally Defined" Red Wolf Recovery Area consuming 312k total acres.

Not one acre of Private Land has ever been legally defined or included as part of the "Red Wolf Recovery Area."  Meaning the "Red Wolf Recovery Area" has never been any larger than 312k acres.


(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20161002%2Fb6e8db577ce766ccbb90b03930af4f77.png&hash=bce144299ab74fe928a98c72d2aa43fc)


USFWS 1995 federal rule list the Experimental Non-Essential (NEP) "Designation" Extending to Private Lands within the 5 county area, thus "relaxing" the federal rules.  By USFWS "Designating" Private Land being under the Non-Essential Red Wolf Experiment, its purpose is to "Relax" restrictions of the ESA.

To be clear, the court should NOT fall in the Plaintiffs trap of mixing the "Red Wolf Recovery Area" (RWRA) and the Non-Essential Experimental (NEP) "Designation Area" as one and they same. 

Again, these designations are wholly separate and apart, thus should NOT be confused as the plaintiff would like.

For the court to impose a night ban on Coyote take beyond the federally defined RWRA of 312k acres is not in Harmony with the intent of Congress, nor the broader recovery tenets of the ESA by greatly eroding, critical private landowner support , while seeming to run afoul with your own Gibbs vs Babbitt ruling.


(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20161002%2Fdd6a41db293a0fe5a76e2e8ba41686be.png&hash=af6b02c9de6407a13f2f6f4a322323d2)


Of most significance private landowners were originally "Told" wolves which "disbursed" the "RWRA" (federal lands) would be recaptured, thus imposing nighttime restrictions upon the single most assets the ESA "must have" (private lands) defies every lesson the Service previously "Learned".


(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20161002%2Fa1c28b54f0b736808cc5a3533d9d183a.png&hash=446bea5a87fff4d758747a8963d56716)


Again, the "Intent" of Congress in allowing the NEP Designation was to "NOT" encumber Private Lands and to specifically allow for lethal take upon a landowner requesting a Red Wolfs removal "specifically" absent any conflict... Yet, you seem to have overridden the very "Intent" of Congress.


(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20161002%2Fec043949661bbbc377f22bd4fdda9708.png&hash=5ea3fad971ba18c351633b18ec0588e7)(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20161002%2Fccba1ed1d46f7e245b0148bce13eac38.png&hash=3c95a5c5736685aec12f7c702ef45e15)


Further, should the USFWS be unable to remove Red Wolves there efforts are then deemed foreclosed and abandoned at which point a Take permit is issued by USFWS to the individual landowner or their designee.

When do you anticipate nullifying what appears to be a settlement between the RWC and the NCWRC that violates the Interstate Commerce Act?

Quote PLNWR - Peat bogs trap carbon, which is a major argument for restoring them, said Brian van Eerden, Southern Rivers Program director with nonprofit conservation organization the Nature Conservancy. “Even though they only occupy 3 percent of the world’s land area, [peat bogs] such as the Dismal Swamp and areas in northeast North Carolina . . . contain the equivalent to twice the carbon stock of all the forest biomass worldwide,” he said.

And when they catch fire, clouds of carbon-rich smoke spread over communities. As well as razing vegetation, the wildfires burn underground, feeding on the peat, and make them much harder to douse. Only burning fossil fuels and deforestation cause more CO2 emissions than peat wildfires, experts say.

Restoring the North Carolina peat bogs has been the focus of efforts starting in the early 1990s and continuing piecemeal over about 15 years as funding became available. By altering the flow of water to mimic seasonal flooding, more than 20,000 acres of peat bog at Pocosin Lakes in northeast North Carolina have been restored, Ward said. The results were not instantaneous but the pattern has been apparent for about two full seasons, she said.

An additional 100,000 acres of peat bogs in Fish and Wildlife Service-controlled refuge lands in the Albemarle watershed, in southeast Virginia and northeast North Carolina, are still in need of restoration, van Eerden said.

According to Fish and Wildlife Service research, the project to raise the water table in Pocosin Lakes will offset the average annual CO2 footprint of 11,000 Americans, or 82,000 tons, every year, through avoidance of wildfires and erosion.

Good evening -

I would like to share with the farmers and followers of Citizens Science.org what preparations Pocosin Lakes Refuge is currently undertaking to mitigate the anticipated flooding effects of Hurricane Matthew on adjoining private Ag Lands.

Has Refuge Staff consulted with its adjoining landowners prior to making any alterations to the water level thus ensuring landowners have an "Equal" say?

Specifically, does USFWS Refuge Management anticipate the removal of riser boards to allow the water level to receded to its "Historic" depth resembling a  pre-sheet flow era resulting in "Ideal" Red Wolf Habitat?

Thank you -

The "Pricey" of Taxpayer Funded Newborn Pup "Eradication"...

Representative Pricey Harrison (NC-D) successfully worked the halls of the #NCGA lobbying unknowing Members to sign on to a letter that echoed the demands of the Animal Welfare Institute, Defenders of Wildlife and the Red Wolf Coalition (Out of State Plaintiffs) calling on the Service to resume their recently halted Adaptive Management of Red Wolves, so let's peal that onion back...

Pay close attention here... The Red Wolf Adaptive Management plan was co-written by two of these very plantiffs and is financed by YOU, through employing federal funds via the use of body gripping steel traps on public lands to trap mature Coyotes, detain each prior to humanly manipulating their natural reproductive ability through a highly controversial sterilization technique. NC Animal Rights Activist should ponder this question... What is the "Pricey" for such a heavy handed trapping plan? FOIA documents obtained by Citizens Science illustrate 252 Sterilizations have occurred with a "Pricey" Tag of $35M in-part and counting.

Fox News last week, blew the whistle on what stands as the most grotesque part of the "Pricey" Adaptive Management plan, by prescribing "Den Hunting" as a means of physically removing newborn nursing coyote pups and euthanizing the entire litters. Fox News further reports, pups are regularly "Drowned" in buckets of water (water-boarded) and or "Hammered". This due to their small size and inability to be captured and sterilized.

While the Service makes its effort to restore the lost trust of North Carolina's Voters, @RepPriceyHarrison you certainly owe your Members a sincere apology for falling in the plaintiffs "Trap" and hoodwinking Rep. Turner, Rep. Hamilton and the 20 others into signing on to your misguided letter calling on Congress to continue funneling taxpayer dollars into a water-boarding scheme to eradicate litters of nursing pups.

Why a sitting member of Congress should never accept a $500.00 in return for reading the scripted lies written by a Wolf Pimp!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XdXeIT8Xhg&feature=youtu.be&t=10m16s


After listing to Congresswomen Dingle's Testimony it was very apparent she was simply reciting the script of a Hybrid Supporter...

Citizens Science has uncovered documents illustrating the corruption that runs deep in Washington. 

Clearly, Defenders of Wildlife will stop at nothing in spending its $30M annual budget to ensure the Illegal Red Wolf Hybrid Scam continues, even against the intent of Congress.

As it turns out at $500 bucks, Dingell is a rather “Cheap” buy for Defenders, after investing nearly 4 times that amount in Congressman Raul Grijakva.

This leaves many better understanding why many in Congress forget the voters they serve, yet are quick to serve as a “Mouth Piece” for those with a "Check"...

Knowing this Defenders of Wildlife, CEO Jamie Rappaport Clark may be the "Official" Wolf Pimp of the Year?

On September 29, twenty-nine sportsmen’s conservation organizations submitted a letter to the U.S. House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations advocating for a number of management directives related to wolf populations in the United States. The letter also expressed support for the decision by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) to delist the Rocky Mountain and Great Lakes wolf populations and for Congressional action directing FWS to reinstate these delisting decisions in Wyoming and the Great Lake States.

The letter urged FWS to “reconsider its policy toward other wolves in the remaining lower 48 states so that future expansion and care for wolf populations of any species or subspecies be the responsibility of the states.” As these groups noted, the “outdated provisions of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and the more recent FWS policies on defining populations will make such a re-consideration difficult, which is one of many reasons to update and modernize the ESA.” Rather than superseding FWS on other wolf-related issues, the groups suggested that Congress work with FWS and state fish and wildlife managers on a plan to update and modernize the ESA and by reinstating FWS wolf delisting decisions that have been overturned by the courts.

As state fish and wildlife managers have proven their capability of managing delisted wolf populations in the Rockies and the Great Lakes Region using science-based management, they are the group best suited to assume full management of wolves in these regions moving forward. However, as detailed in the letter, misguided, anti-scientific litigation over wolf-delisting decisions poses a great threat to continued science-based management of wolves by state fish and wildlife agencies, and by extension, threatens both the recovery of wolves and the viability of the many game species, such as deer and elk, upon which these wolves prey.

The groups continued the letter by speaking to management of Mexican wolves in the southwestern United States and red wolves in North Carolina. They advocated for the Mexican wolf population to be “delisted and exclusive authority returned to the states for managing this species in the US” upon agreement of a biologically acceptable population of Mexican wolves between FWS and the states of Arizona and New Mexico. They also worked with Mexico’s government to recover the species’ core population. In North Carolina, the groups explained that the proliferation of hybridized red wolves (and the almost certain continued hybridization of the species), whose genetics have been substantially diluted by crossbreeding with coyotes and wild dogs, necessitates the delisting of the red wolf, and a return of management of this species to state authority.

The letter was submitted on September 29 to House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations Chair Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and Ranking Member Representative Debbie Dingell (D-MI).

Science may end the debate over this hybrid, but the problem won't go away anytime soon

By Len Lisenbee

There is no doubt that the red wolf, which at one time inhabited much of the coastal regions of the Southeastern U.S. and some other areas, is endangered. After all, the biologists running this “program” state rather definitively that there are only 29 of them currently to be found in the wild.

There is only one problem; a rather large problem if the truth be told, with these critters.

According to the best scientists and genetics experts, the red wolf is not a species at all. Never has been. It is instead a hybrid result of gray wolves mating with coyotes. And that little fact sure tosses a hand grenade into the old manure pile. You see, a lot of scientists, researchers, and red wolf supporters have gone out on a very slender branch with their support, including so-called historical support, of this “species.”

In an attempt to find and solidify that historical record of red wolves existing as a distinct species for many years, decades or even centuries, experts searched all available records to insure that no stone was left unturned. And their “proof” appeared to have been discovered in four very old red wolf hides, with one apparently pre-dating the Civil War. The very best genetics experts were employed to analyze this evidence so that no possible mistakes could be made.

Can you guess what they found when the results were formally analyzed?

If you guessed a cross-breeding between a gray wolf and a coyote, grab the cigar. All of those pelts, along with other “samples” of possible partial red wolf hides from ancient Cherokee, Creek and Choctaw Indian dress garb, were thoroughly tested. Every tested item proved to be either wolf, coyote or wolf-coyote hybrid.

In other words, there is not now nor has there ever been a unique animal species that either is or was a red wolf. But there are plenty of red faces because a lot of individuals have known about this pending scandal for a very long time.

What scandal, you may be asking? The red wolf has long been one of the federal government’s “marquee” endangered species programs. Many millions of dollars have been spent to prevent it from going into the abyss of extinction. Millions more have been budgeted for future research. And worst of all, some of those scientists already knew about the cross-breeding before all of this news came bubbling out. Are they guilty of fraud? Or malfeasance?

Any decision by federal officials to delist the species would essentially result in the extermination for the red wolf. There are historical records of these hybrid critters roaming across the Southeast for a very long time. There are only 29 red wolves left in the wild. And the only reason they still exist there is because of federal protection efforts and the spending of millions of taxpayer dollars.

This species of animal is not an endangered species, and can never be allowed to claim that title without severe changes in the law and a lot of related regulations. The science clearly indicates red wolves from the very beginning were nothing more than a hybrid between a coyote and a gray wolf. As a proven hybrid, it should be delisted immediately.

But there are a lot of red wolf supporters, and they can be expected to fight this issue even though the latest science is not on their side. They will surely point out that the red wolf was given complete government protection in 1967. And, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service spent almost 50 years and some $35 million just trying to save it from extinction.

The recovery program involves 44 zoos and almost 2 million acres of private land and federal refuge. And there have been massive trapping and captive breeding programs (after releasing 132 wolves to the wild). And yet as of today there are only two breeding pairs left in the wild.

Oh, and the feds are still spending about $1.5 million a year.

So what will it take to make the red wolf scandal disappear? First, don’t hold your breath. Too much effort has already been expended to make it go away anytime soon. But the facts are plain to see. The red wolf was declared extinct in the wild in 1980. The feds then collected what they considered to be 400 pure red wolves in the bayous of Louisiana and East Texas based on appearances only, but not based on genetics.

Essentially the feds invented a species and then called it endangered. In all probability, they knew this was a hybrid from the very beginning.

Oh, and there is another slight problem that now much be contended with. I mentioned that more than a hundred so-called red wolves have been released from breeding programs into the wilds of the Carolinas and north Georgia. Well, it seems that nature took over at that point, and the red wolves quickly bred with local coyotes, producing an especially hardy “super hybrid” that multiplied faster than the biologists could contain.

So, in order to deal with these new threats, the feds did what they do best, which is to screw things up even more. They tried trapping and sterilizing the hybrids to halt their new-found proliferation. They also went “den hunting,” killing hybrid newborns using water buckets and hammers. And animal rights advocates supported these grotesque techniques as necessary in order to remove the coyotes while saving the wolf.

Friends and neighbors, this is a really stupid situation that should never have had a beginning and now may never have an end. There is one obvious fact staring everyone in the face, and it is that there never was a “red wolf” species. Coyotes and gray wolves have been interbreeding for countless centuries, which is why we in New York have our own problems with “eastern” coyotes.

But this situation does highlight one important fact. There are all sorts of outdoor dummies doing all sorts of stupid, or dumb, or illegal things. And it is apparent that, when given the nearly unlimited funding of the federal budget, fed by our tax dollars, federal bureaucrats can soar high above other outdoor dummies if given half a chance.

Ms. Fascione you will recall Co-Authoring the 1999 "Adaptive" Sterilization / Puppy Killing Plan or locally known in NC as an "Eugenics Plan".  Your plan purposely manipulates the natural reproductive ability of non-wolf canids.

As VP of Defenders of Wildlife, I assume your aware Defenders recently sued USFWS demanding they resume the recently halted Adaptive Puppy "Eradication" Plan you Co-Wrote?

With limited Management presently occurring, by the most simplistic logic Defenders suit request expanding these Adaptive practices from their current levels of near zero.

Red Wolf Recipe… & “Refunds”…

So with USFWS declaring the Red Wolf extinct in the wild is one thing.  The best most commercially available science shows us that todays “Contempoary” Wolf was NEVER historic to North Carolina.  USFWS expended $150K in federal funds to have WMI and its own past Director Steve Williams (CEO / WMI) publish within its findings;  there is no denying todays Red Wolf is a product of Selective Breeding and Human Construct (i.e. Invented).

(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20161017%2F3b5dc9b178254ae9b9e10547811ae5f2.jpg&hash=a87e8cc2090a9e505b4a7dc305634b6f)

Now, when you Invent something you have therefor humanly constructed something that genetically did not exist prior to the invention (May 3, 1977).

(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20161017%2F45ffdc50cafb02cd0d5a81bf02f55698.jpg&hash=707fa3c3f1b3666a1585acdc912c3953)

Congress passed the ESA in 1973, so there is absolute no way the contemporary Red Wolf could ever be covered under a 1973 ESA act when it wasn’t invented until 1977… 

An audit of the Red Wolf Studbook showed the first two captive litters were euthanized, deemed to be “Hybrids”.  It’s widely known that Defenders of Wildlife’s own Vice President, Donald Berry (Retired USFWS Solicitor) stated Hybrid Red Wolves are NOT Covered under the ESA and extending endangered coverage would be contrary to the very “Intent” of Congress in their passage of the Act.

* Yet Defenders of Wildlife continues to “Solicit” Donations after the “Solicitor” stated Hybrid Red Wolves are NOT COVERED!! 

USFWS Captive Wolf Mill continued to tweak their Red Wolf “Recipe” for years to come…  Producing 81 Hybrid Red Wolves in the first ten years of the program with a total of well over 200 Hybrids being constructed from yrs 1977−2013! 

With respect to Historic Range, Defenders of Wildlife is exactly correct in stating todays contemporary Red Wolf is ONLY historic to a zoo in Tacoma Washington.

Article 25.

Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Wildlife Species of Special Concern.

§ 113-331. Definitions.

All of the definitions contained in Article 12 of this Chapter 113 shall apply in this Article except to the extent that they may be herein modified for the purposes of this Article 25. As used in this Article, unless the context requires otherwise:

(1) "Conserve" and "conservation" mean the use and application of all methods, procedures and biological information for the purpose of bringing populations of native and once-native species of wildlife in balance with the optimum carrying capacity of their habitat, and maintaining such balance. These methods and procedures include all activities associated with scientific resource management such as research; census; law enforcement; habitat protection, acquisition, and enhancement; and restoration of species to unoccupied parts of historic range. With respect to endangered and threatened species, the terms mean the use of methods and procedures to bring the species to the point at which the measures provided are no longer necessary.

(2) "Endangered species" means any native or once-native species of wild animal whose continued existence as a viable component of the State's fauna is determined by the Wildlife Resources Commission to be in jeopardy or any species of wild animal determined to be an "endangered species" pursuant to the Endangered Species Act.

(3) "Endangered Species Act" means the Endangered Species Act of 1973, Public Law 93-205 (87 Stat. 884), as it may be subsequently amended.

(4) "Advisory Committee" means the North Carolina Nongame Wildlife Advisory Committee which is the advisory body of knowledgeable and representative citizens established by resolution of the Wildlife Resources Commission and charged to consider matters relating to nongame wildlife conservation and to advise the Commission in such matters.

(5) "Protected animal" means a species of wild animal designated by the Wildlife Resources Commission as endangered, threatened, or of special concern.

(6) "Protected animal list" means any one of the lists of North Carolina animal species that are endangered, threatened, or of special concern.

(7) "Scientific council" means the group of scientists identified and assembled by the Advisory Committee to review the scientific evidence and to evaluate the status of wildlife species that are candidates for inclusion on a protected animal list.

(8) "Special concern species" means any species of wild animal native or once-native to North Carolina which is determined by the Wildlife Resources Commission to require monitoring but which may be taken under regulations adopted under the provisions of this Article.

(9) "Threatened species" means any native or once-native species of wild animal which is likely to become an endangered species within the foreseeable future throughout all or a significant portion of its range, or one that is designated as a threatened species pursuant to the Endangered Species Act.

(10) "Wild animal" means any native or once-native nongame amphibian, bird, crustacean, fish, mammal, mollusk or reptile not otherwise legally classified by statute or regulation such as game and fur bearing animals, except those inhabiting and depending upon coastal fishing waters, marine and estuarine resources, marine mammals found in coastal fishing waters, sea turtles found in coastal fishing waters, and those declared to be pests under the Structural Pest Control Act of North Carolina of 1955 or the North Carolina Pesticide Law of 1971. Nothing in this definition is intended to abrogate G.S. 113-132(a) or (c), confer jurisdiction upon the Wildlife Resources Commission as to any subject exclusively regulated by any other agency, or to authorize the Wildlife Resources Commission by its regulations to supersede any valid provision of law or regulation administered by any other agency.

WikiLeaks provides a rare glimpse into why the “Invented” Red Wolf is still listed…


Fwd: Endangered bird blitz: Colorado presses feds for more time on grouse

Guys, I think this a political firebomb in the West. Hearing rumors that grouse is about to be listed by Interior – FWS - (like this Wednesday) and will set off a bomb out west including Hickenlooper saying he will sue Interior.

The pressure has been a DC district court order requiring Interior to act if a collaborative conservation plan by the 11 counties and diverse coalition was not reached by November. Do we have to do this?  Interior should ask the court for another 6 months extension to let the current collaborative process play out with hope of getting a decent plan. If they don’t, at least every effort ill have been made to try and we think there is hope.

The reason this so key is that the Gunnison listing in Colorado is the first line of battle in the bigger Greater Sage Grouse planning effort covering 11 western states that is also coming to a head.

If Gunnison listing goes forward now, what will happen will be big legislative bills delaying listings indefinitely of both species which likely even enough Ds might vote for. Just trying to avoid a train wreck about to explode this week if possible.

Note the "Generous" timeline "Ordered" by Judge Terrence Boyle...

At the rate the Wolves are "Departing" illegally flooded federal refuge land and being forced to cross busy highways subsequently to only get hit and killed! 

That's not leaving much of an "Invented" Red Wolf population to argue come next year...

Subject: USFWS Red Wolf Billboard & Director Dan Ashe

Secretary Jewell -

We met a few yrs bk, I remember your spoken words...  In summary, how easy it was for people / public to takeout frustration on federal employees... 

That statement stuck with me... Thus, I feel obligated to convey what's occurring on the ground here in North Carolina and why...

USFWS has many good employees, one such is Mr. Art Beyer, a long time FWS Red Wolf Recovery team member. 

Unfortunately, Director Dan Ashe lacks the ability to make decisions and provide "Top Cover" to those charged with assembling the best commercial science.

Additionally, Director Ash "Refuses" to follow his agencies own federal rules relating to management of the Red Wolf Program.

The Red Wolf as a 10-J Experimental Non-Essential Population, Director Ash has broad management authority, yet his inactions  have created an environment where good USFWS employees are...  using your words "getting beat up on".

Ms. Jewell, this must stop.

Director Ashe seems to define the cancer of inaction. 

He refuses to return phone calls or meet with private landowners whom are stuck hosting USFWS's "Illegally" released and genetically invented Red Wolves.

Having met you, there's no question you would never have tolerated this while CEO of REI and I trust you will not tolerate it as CEO of the Department of the Interior.

Director Ashe is much more concerned about his past "Co-Workers" turned friendly "Duel-Track" NGO Conservation Partners than he is of "Current" employees he is charged with supporting...

Dan's "Duel-Track" partners utilize their 6th floor staff to submit grant request to USFWS... While simultaneously their Sue and Settle "Legal Mill" attorney's extort the EAJ by consuming appropriated funding, intended for conservation, endangered species reintroduction all to gain six figure legal reimbursements.

My apologies for sending this to your direct email, however it was time, as your employees deserve more.

The Billboard (below) just erected on HWY-64, best communicates where Dan's inaction has left the Red Wolf Experiment...

As a result both landowner trust & federal employee morale are equally as eroded...

I will be free this afternoon and this evening.

With today's news that Director James Comey has reopened the criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton what does that mean for the "Illegal" Red Wolf Program?

A Trump White House...  I understand would likely shut down this $35M fraud and restore the eroded private property rights and privileges of the trusting private landowners!

Have you found the collection of documents contained here informative, if so would you consider forwarding to others residing in Red Wolf country. 

Together we can inform others and regain our private property rights and privileges from the $400,000.00 "Out of State" CEO's such as Jamie Rappaport Clark, CEO Defenders of Wildlife?

Defenders of Wildlife successfully shut the beaches of North Carolina down to traditional vehicle traffic, now Ms. Clark has succeeded in shutting down your previously afforded private land owner privileges you enjoyed just 24 months ago!

How does a $400K CEO whom resides in DC, know what's best for your private land??

The time has come to tell Ms. Clark, what's best for her "Fundraising" campaigns is NOT what's best for your private land...

Don't forget to forward this link to a friend...

All followers are urged to visit Amazon and order a copy of The Secret World of Red Wolves!

https://www.amazon.com/Secret-World-Red-Wolves-Americas/dp/1469626543

It is full of previously "Secret" management tactics such as "Darting" Borrowed" Mutts from the Dare County Pound... To heaving live deer over wolf pens!

Additionally the book documents many of the "LIE's" peddled by USFWS leading to the creation of the above billboard that's now prominently displayed on HWY 64.

Subject: This picture is worth a 1000 words - part one of a seven part series
 
 
Director Ashe,

This email will be part one of a seven part series in which you and I discern exactly what this canine is and why it is on my farm. I will start out easy.

​(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20161031%2Fe6d2600195166a21367ab2e4d9224f8d.jpg&hash=579124abbd2dc0252dc94ce7072a37c9)
 
The above picture of a canine on my farm taken last week, speaks volumes about what the USFWS Red Wolf program has brought to and created in our State. 

As Director of USFWS, can you tell me exactly what this canine is?  Is it a coyote, a "red wolf", a coywolf, or a non-native, invasive USFWS created and tax payer funded hybrid red wolf/coyote?

I and many other North Carolinians anxiously await your answer.  Please just reply to all ASAP.

A first look into a "Convenient" Case of "Heart-worms"...


Endangered $30,000,000.00 Red Wolf Gunned Down from Gunfire!!

Then in a stunning move, USFWS labs determine mortality was likely due to "Heart-worms" and close their case!

Only after Landowners and Hunters offered a historic $52,050.00 reward did clues began to surface.

Why would USFWS deliberately close an endangered species confirmed gunshot case, when a federal coyote hunting injunction was in place?

Is it now legal to gun down an endangered species with no fear of criminal charges if USFWS determines the wolf had heart-worms?

“But if Red Wolves war a product of hybridization from recent human-induced habitat changes, (Relocating 400 wolves to a Zoo 2500 Miles away) then they advocated that the wolves were not a high priority for conservation.” 

“In other words, if humans had created the Red Wolf, it was perceived as being far less valuable than if Mother Nature had created it.”

Regular followers are acutely aware of how well the wolf supporters and study $uckers trumped up Adaptive Management as the fix all to the Red Wolves hybridization issue… 

That was until Citizens Science accurately described Adaptive Management as the “KILL ALL” that has ended up silencing the plaintiffs…  Even to the point of likely suggesting the excessive timeline contained in the recent court filing serves the red wolf of no useful purpose given were now nearly 3 years with NO Adaptive Management. 

Thats correct, were approaching 3 breeding cycles laced with rampant hybridization.  This fact clearly explains why the PVHA Woof “Bakers” DO NOT have any use for any WILD Red Wolves to be returned to the site of the “Heist”… (Zoo / Wolf Mill).  You see they would only grossly contaminate the “Recipe” by injecting perhaps that last 25% of Coyote needed to breed authentic 100% Coyotes? 

This bring us adaptive management and the point of scratching our head in disbelief…  How can some be so stupid?

If you (DOW & RWC) are going to prescribe death to litters of newborn coyote pups and trap and sterilize all the mature coyotes across the landscape what does that do for “Compensatory Breeding”?? 

UNDERSTANDING THE COMPENSATORY REPRODUCTION RESPONSE TO KILLING COYOTES
Increased breeding and litter size responses are just some of the response to lethal control by the adaptable coyote.

USFWS & "Crooked Canids"...

Why listen to a debate a recent Study when you can read from the "Man" Curtis Carley original USFWS Red Wolf coordinator!

"A great deal of effort th going into the reintroduction of Red Wolves." "In 1967, the Red Wolf was designated an endangered species." When Curtis Carley became project leader of the Red Wolf recovery program in 1974, he assumed that there was a pure Red Wolf population in the wild and that recovery would mean protecting it there."

"But in 1972, Roy McBride and Glynn Riley, having been sent out by the Fish and Wildlife Service to search for Red Wolves, estimated that most of the survivors were in extreme southeastern Texas and southwestern Louisiana, and that even they were hybridizing. Once it appeared that there was no populations of Red Wolves free from the threat of hybridization, recalls Carley, (quote) we had to reorganize and rethink it." "We didn't have time for extended study."

"In July 1975, we got authorization to capture the remaining genetically pure Red Wolves." "Removal was problematic, because we, for all practical purpose, were making this animal extinct in the wild, and that can only be justified if you intend to put them back into the wild."

Folks, why Circa 2015 are we defining a Red Wolf based on Nowak's "What I think a Red Wolf would look like" (Morphology) vs Wayne and Kay's Coyote Confirming Genetics??

Let me add that Curtis Carley with the USFWS is quoted above that in July of 1975 "we got authorization to capture the remaining genetically pure Red Wolves."

Mr. Nowak… It appears the 1975 Federal Authorization was solely based on Genetically Pure Red Wolves not YOUR Morphology "Resembles" Red Wolves. I'm sure this will be a "Defining" quote as we continue to expose the lies and coverup that have run rampant among a few within the USFWS and their Eco-Enterprising Wolf Pimps!

"New" Fraudulent Historic Range??

It's widely known the ESA ONLY allows for reintroduced populations to occur within their "Historic Range"...

It now appears USFWS regularly works off TWO "Registries"...  1) The Federal "Registry" and  2) Ron Nowak's "Registry"

After Mr. Nowak recently stated NO Conclusive Evidence exist to everyone's satisfaction to show the Red Wolf was EVER historic to North Carolina...  It should come as no surprise, if Mr. Nowak would extend the Red Wolfs historic range with NO supporting science he would do the same thing for the Hybrid Mexican Wolf.

This will NOT be well received by Congress... 

Yet one more example of total disregard of the law by those charged with writing it...

State Wildlife action plan revised

Posted:  Friday, November 11, 2016 3:15 am

Our state has a great diversity of wildlife and habitats. There are various sources of funding associated with protecting game species like white-tailed deer and wild turkey and various sport fish, including the Wildlife Restoration Act (Pittman–Robertson or PR), Sport Fisheries Restoration Act (Dingell–Johnson or DJ), and the Wallop-Breaux Act.
Less funding has been available for what are known as “nongame” species.

These are species like migratory songbirds and aquatic mussels that are not fished or hunted.

In the mid-1990s the Teaming with Wildlife Coalition was formed to help secure funding for preservation of these nongame species. From their work with members of Congress, the Department of the Interior and Related Agencies Appropriation Act was developed and signed into law in 2002. This act created the Wildlife Conservation and Restoration Program and the State Wildlife Grants Program (or SWG), which provides federal matching funds to all 50 states and territories. These funds are used to protect species and prevent them from becoming endangered, or to help keep common animals common.

The SWG program provides funding for conservation of nongame species, but each state must have a State Wildlife Action Plan in order to be eligible for these funds. North Carolina’s Wildlife Action Plan (NCWAP) is “a comprehensive planning tool developed by the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission to help conserve and enhance the state’s full array of fish and wildlife species and their habitats.”

It was developed in cooperation with numerous partners, including federal and state agencies, conservation organizations, and various other stakeholders. The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission received approval from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service for the comprehensive revision of the N.C. Wildlife Action Plan March 30.
One change in the new NCWAP is the incorporation of the effects of climate change on wildlife. The second version of the NCWAP is the result of a lot of collaborative efforts of federal and state agencies, local organizations, and citizens. This involved the “development of committees, review of literature and guidance documents, review and revision of the species evaluation and prioritization process, and investigation of the technical publication resources.”

A State Wildlife Action Plan Best Practices Working Group was created to help improve and standardize these plans across the states. NCWRC incorporated many of these best practices in this new revision.
There are eight required elements in this new plan. These are distribution and abundance of species of wildlife; descriptions of locations and relative condition of key habitats and community types; descriptions of problems and priority research and survey efforts needed; descriptions of conservation actions proposed to conserve species and habitats; monitoring plans and adaptation of conservation actions; procedures for review of the Plan at intervals not to exceed 10 years; plans for coordinating the development, implementation, review, and revision of the Plan with federal, state, and local agencies and Indian tribes; and documentation of public participation during development and implementation.

The first wildlife action plan helped guide wildlife conservation efforts, and in one case study implementing the recommendations from the 2005 plan helped improve knowledge about Carolina Northern Flying Squirrels, which led to positive results from conservation efforts.

There are currently 61 wildlife and plant species in North Carolina that are listed for protection under the Federal Endangered Species Act. There are 109 species listed as threatened or endangered in North Carolina. Since the 2005 WAP there have been changes in the species protected under federal and state listings. For example, the Bald Eagle was delisted. The Northern Long-eared Bat was listed as Threatened. There are also what are considered endangered ecosystems, such as the Longleaf Pine savanna and Southern forested wetlands.
The WAP provides information about conservation and management needs of North Carolina’s fish and wildlife and the natural communities in which they live, prioritizes recommendations for meeting those needs, and identifies programs and partnerships that work toward achieving those goals.

In the case of the Northern Carolina Flying Squirrel, the 2005 WAP identified the need for surveys to determine their distribution, abundance and status. Monitoring and genetic research were also needed.
Habitat loss of the spruce-fir forest from logging and development and the Balsam and Hemlock Woolly Adelgid threaten this species. In addition, the Cherohala Skyway corridor in the Unicoi Mountains resulted in a barrier to dispersal that impeded genetic mixing of populations, because the road was too wide for the squirrels to glide across. Replanting areas with Red Spruce and the installation of artificial crossing structures across the skyway have helped restore habitat and reconnect populations of the squirrel.

This is just one real-world example of how conservation actions can be implemented to help protect and restore species. Keeping common animals common as a goal of the WAP helps species before they become threatened or endangered. This ensures they will be around for future generations and to continue to play important roles in the ecosystems in which they live. The WAP is one important tool in making that a reality.

USFWS announces NEW $38M proposal to expand Red Wolf Program into Hyde County. 

Currently ARNWR is contained within the bounds of Dare County.

Documents from USFWS indicate a cost of roughly $38,000,000.00. 

This would indicate USFWS is doubling-down on its reported spend of its Non-Essential Experimental Red Wolf Program.

Hyde County residents seem to have the most at stake, absorbing a share of the $38,000,000.00 Federal spend while unfortunately loosing in excess of $50,000.00 (yr) tax base off its annual property tax rolls.

Late today USFWS arrived at NCWRC and unveiled their proposal to the Committee as a Whole...

The biggest shock may come as early reports indicate a Republican Lawmaker has been quietly "Wading" this through the "Swamp" on Capital Hill...

The "Official" USFWS, 2016...  Who's Flooding Who "Map"...   

Inclusive of the "Official" USFWS "Why You Should be Concerned" Document...


Wonder if when talking about having to be careful not to overwhelm the “Natural System” on the Refuge that was meant to mean the Red Wolves Ideal Habitat?  We all know when you overstock the stated carrying capacity of your Ideal Habitat every acre becomes that much more important.  So why is USFWS continuing to flood Ideal federal land?

USFWS has done a masterful job telling the private landowners what they can and cannot do on their land yet they continue to “Illegally” Degrade Habitat compromising the Endangered Red Wolfs ability to Feed, Breed and Seek Shelter.

This Illegal activity is achieved by Federal “Nexus” Projects requiring a Section 7 Consult.

To summarize, USFWS deliberately floods their Ideal Habitat, Invented Red Wolves swims to your private high land and it becomes the private landowners who are to blame for the gunshot takes of Red Wolves and not the ones who violated section 9 of the ESA.

I hear the land USFWS has proposed to buy to connect refuges will have to be pumped dry so the red wolf will be able to travel from one refuge to the next. PLNWR was dry red wolf habitat.

Odie - Should the USFWS listen to the "Special Interest" or should the USFWS listen to the "Local Interest"??

If USFWS has any desire to "Make ARNWR Great Again"...  Perhaps they should "Cut-And-Run" from the "Special-Interest" just like "Plaintiff" Jamie Rappaport Clark, CEO of the Defenders of Wildlife!

I suspect the "Local Interest" perhaps may be following this thread... 

Odie... If the local people are ready to stand up to the "Crooked" out of state "Special Interest" together we can take "Our Beaches Back Again"... 

Folks, I'm serious...  It's as simple as requesting the exact same "Incidental Take" Permit Florida gets to preserve the exact same Turtles that swim from NC to Florida!

Locals have been fleeced by stupid people for far too long...

Why and the "HELL" did no one request an "Incidental Take" Permit??  Florida has one... 

Folks, if you care about your community, if you care about your beaches, if you care about your private lands, if you care about your native wildlife, if you care about your neighbors and family it's time to get the rogue NGO "Sue & Settle" Plaintiffs the Hell Out of North Carolina!

Big problems brewing for the Red Wolf  Species Survival Program and its facilitators...  This seems to include the Point Defiance Zoo as well...

It's widely known the only one with governing control to "Set and Approve" goals for the Red Wolf Recovery Program is the USFWS.

Subsequently, USFWS did just that, by "Defining" what is an "Approved" Red Wolf!


(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20161213%2F67299561330598f6238c698ab9b9eb2e.jpg&hash=1e3db63718d21d9d950ddace18604867)


Yet, it seems without any approval from USFWS the SSP proceeded to totally "Re-Invent" the definition of a Red Wolf based on a set of DNA schemes that appear to totally lack any approval from the USFWS!

This quagmire gets worse...  The Captive Breeding Program has been relying on this non-approved DNA scheme, in part to Adaptively breed Red Wolves in Captivity.

Additionally, USFWS approved & published its stated Genetic Retention Goals of the Founders for the wild population of Red Wolves residing in North Carolina.

This goal was to maintain genetic diversity of 80-90% for 150 yrs.  (125 yrs remain).


(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20161213%2Fd862a4c693d633c91bef83fd9085eb2b.jpg&hash=8f8980204e54250a2dd44758781fb9ba)


However in 2015 Lincoln Park Zoo was the recipient of a $40,000 federal grant to update the PVHA of the Red Wolves. 

It's paramount to state in this study, it seems  the Grant Recipients took it upon themselves to arbitrarily complete the report based on "All" Red Wolf Populations being managed "Together as One" thus measuring as a "Meta-Population" and not managed separate and apart as has been long approved by USFWS. 

You see, Captive Red Wolves enjoy full endangered status as do Wild Red Wolves that reside on Federal Refuge Lands in both North Carolina and Florida. 

Wild Red Wolves trespassing outside the ARNWR on private lands are treated as expendable or as a Non-Essential Experimental Population. 

Therefor the populations being defined as separate and apart.

Make NO mistake that by the Grant Recipients suggesting the Red Wolves can meet the "Approved" Genetic Conservation goals of of 80-90% diversity out 150 yrs (125yrs remain) is a "Red Herring" and nothing short of "Fleecing" USFWS out of $40,000 for study driven on a yet again "Non-Approved" Meta-Management Scheme of the Red Wolf population.

USFWS "Staff" across all regions should denounce this self-serving culture of twisting science against approved goals, stated rules, legislation and law! 

We'll leave you to ponder this... Does anyone else wonder why and the hell USFWS employs its own biologists but continues to Subcontract out the work?

Stupid, Stupid, Stupid...

There is do doubt where the Secretary stands on the Sue & Settlers...

Looks like Invasive Coyote control will soon return to North Carolina private landowners

For those of you whom may be searching for a great stocking stuffer, may we suggest the book that "Pealed" the Onion Back!

Yes, this is the book that served to offer a rare never before seen glimpse into:

1) Darting Borrowed Mutts from "Dare County Pound"

2) Eradicating Litters of Nursing Pups

3) Heaving "Live" Deer into confined Wolf Pens

Here are a few of these cruel and in-humane acts...

What a great collaborative partnership... 

Lawful Hunters, Trappers and Private Landowners set to utilize (collaborative) USFWS Adaptive Trapping Plan to help agency achieve its published goals...

Now with the private sectors involvement in the Red Wolf Program, may even come in... "Ahead of Schedule" and "Under Budget"...

Perhaps the "Current" Secretary of Interior views The Best Most Commercially Available Science of the Invented Red Wolf much different than the Science of Climate Change??

It's really shocking to the American Public just how "Cheap" some members of Congress will go, for example affording $500.00 "Trade-Deals" to occur within the "Swamp"...

Disgusting...  Who ever thought some Members of Congress could be bought so "Cheap"??

NEW - Office of Inspector General Complaint


From: "Wiser, William" <william_wiser@doioig.gov>
Date: December 20, 2016 at 8:41:55 AM EST

Subject: Re: Formal Malicious Prosecution & Concealed Science Complaint


Your complaint has been received.

Bill

William T. Wiser
Special Agent
Office of the Inspector General (OIG)
Department of the Interior (DOI)
381 Elden Street, Suite 3000,
Herndon, VA 20170
(O) (703) 487-5005


On Tue, Dec 20, 2016 at 2:29 AM

Mr. Wiser -

Please accept this allegation against USFWS and my request to have the Office of Inspector General Fully Investigate the same.

Note the dates of each action below, the timeline is clear...  USFWS was in possession of disqualifying science prior to bringing charges forward.

USFWS wrongfully prosecuted Mr. Mann and others, knowing full well the wolf takes were not protected based on Section 3 of the ESA  and the best most commercially available science both then and now reaffirmed in 2016.

Please kindly provide confirmation of receipt and Case number.

Merry Christmas --

Mr. Wiser -

Note the dates within the first two doc's relative to the date Fish charged / summonsed Mr. Mann especially referencing the GOA report. These dates have a story to tell.

The compelling evidence I present here further supports the allegation presented.

Any response from Fish back to the OIG, the tune of...  Biologist & Special Agents would not have convened on this case or known of the best 1991 science;  is a Red Herring.   

Thank You.

That is going to be a tough job gaining creditability when they are trying to pass off a 76% coyote as a red wolf. Or spend $38,000,000 on land to connect two tracts of refuges that they know the "wolf" won't stay on.

Lynn,

Below is a newly discovered document on the Illegal, Non-Native, Trespassing Red Wolves and the hard working gentlemen that was illegally charged AFTER USFWS "Knowingly Knew" their "Invented" Wolf was NOT protected under section 3 of the ESA.  The good news is, the Office of Inspector General is currently investigating what seems to be a very significant fraud within the agency!

Chapter 2 -

The Red Wolf Coalition & Defenders of Wildlife continue to "Solicit" Donor Funds off an Invented Animal that is NOT, again Covered under the ESA...  Problematic for both and their Board of Directors...

Subject: "Hybrid" Red Wolf Christmas Cookies...

Dan -

I stepped away from our family gathering as I wanted to ensure you got my "Hybrid" Red Wolf Cookie recipe in plenty of time for Santa!!  If your happy with the recipe I'd like for you to consider being a  "Peer Reviewer".

Please keep this Recipe a "Secret" ;) ;)... Last thing we need is the Private Landowners finding out about it ;)... 


1) Preheat the "Zoo" to 325 Degrees.

2) Mix together "INVENTED SCIENCE WITH" granulated sugar, brown sugar, and melted butter in a large bowl.  Add vanilla, eggs, yogurt, dry ingredients and combine.

3) Stir in $33,000,000.00, of Federal Funds.

4) Place spoonfuls on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until "CINNAMON BUFF" in color"

5) You can bake for less time, producing a LESS HYBRID cookie depending on the STUDIES INTENT and LENGTH of AVAILABLE FEDERAL FUNDING.

6) Let cookies cool a bit before removing AND ILLEGALLY "DELIVERING" TO PRIVATE LAND'S...

If for some reason you don't like how they turned out you can always "Dispatch" them or in the words of Retired USFWS Zoologist Ronald Nowak "Preserve them as a Nation Monument"(??)...

Nevertheless you better get-on to baking, so you'll have them Hot-Fresh-Now when Santa arrives later tonight...

Merry Christmas--

DONOR ALERT - Don't Get Hoodwinked...

Then best most commercially available science shows this animal is a Non-Confirming animal and is NOT covered under the Endangered Species Act.

Do not let yourself get fooled by the myth that this animal is somehow covered under the ESA, it's not.   

What the Red Wolf Coalition and Defenders of Wildlife have done is a superb job setting a narrative that some how DNA lies and they can therefor continue to rake in YOUR money to spread this propaganda while in the case of the RWC, most every dime goes to pay the directors salary and rent, which as Mr. Ferebee confined has very limited hours.  This further compounds the farce, leaving nearly nothing for "Program Services"...

Mr. Benjamin,

This 8/31/16 request remains outstanding as of 12/30/16... 

Please provide an update as many are very curious on why the discrepancy and dramatic drop in mortality?

Has USFWS been "Cooking" the mortality books to falsely bolster the Federal Red Wolf Case brought indirectly by the past Red Wolf Coordinator against his own agency...  While serving on the Plaintiffs Board? 

We now know USFWS has been cooking the DNA books so why should we think otherwise?

Mr. Benjamin,

Unfortunately, I have an additional mortality discrepancy to inquire about.

While the FWS SE Leadership has been clear in its effort to "Restore the Trust" in the Service through the eyes of those residing in the 5 county area, it has come to my attention that we have yet again, a Dead (Gunshot) Red Wolf that was not included in the USFWS current mortality data.

This omission occurring for the past 8 months, giving pause to the question of why?


(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20161231%2F45d51078893c8b78dbb766f7ad738b72.jpg&hash=9805834353f1508ec5da74e306fcc544)


It should be noted this Red Wolf was Shot on private lands after the USFWS had received a formal red wolf removal request from the landowner. 

The date of Gunshot...  "Based of Field Sign & Body Condition" supports "There is a High Likelihood it Died of Heart-worms"...(??)

Nevertheless, this confirmed "Gunshot" Red Wolf Mortality occurred on February 21, 2016...  Yet the current mortality table does not show record of this legally "Reported" Incidental Kill.


<image2.PNG>



Add this Mortality to the more recent Mortality death of Red Wolf 14-011F that too is missing from the USFWS Mortality making these two recent mortalities "Suspiciously Suppressed" from the Trusting Public.


<image8.PNG>

<image5.PNG>

<image6.PNG>



How many other Mortalities have occurred and are known to the USFWS yet continue to go unreported to the Public.

With the ongoing Red Wolf Feasibility Team meetings and pending decision on the fate of the Red Wolf Program, have all RWFT members been made aware of the loss of these two Red Wolves and what impact does  their death have on the loss of Genetic's via Genetic Swamping?

<image3.PNG>


The Service will recall the recent Office of Inspector Generals Report "Centered" around manipulated mortality data, stating while the OIG investigation was ongoing FWS compiled all mortality data and corrected all listing discrepancies. 

It's ironic, at the same time the OIG was issuing their findings the USFWS failed to accurately list ongoing mortality on the very report being investigated by the OIG....

Please alert me via email when you or staff have time to update the mortality data to show the death of these two canids and others you or the Service may be aware of yet remain unpublished.

Thank you -

Lynn, the real crime here is not the death of an unprotected "Hybrid" but the USFWS illegally diverting federal "Reward Funds" for an animal that is NOT protected under Section 3 of the ESA!


(http://forum.citizensscience.org/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20170102%2F45b08e3af87f7cc5182555a716f6ef0a.png&hash=76caa19d115d425a00d1dc8d694083f2)


You see, back in 1991 USFWS expended funds and engaged a Genetic DNA Study that showed the Red Wolf was neither a Species or a Subspecies.

This fact disqualified the Red Wolf for ESA protection back in 1991 Fishes own science was the best most commercially available science!

Most notable Fish again (1991) expended federal funds to determine the "Biological Identity" of the Red Wolf, thus then Fish "Knowingly Knew" the Red Wolf was NOT covered.

Most ironic just a few months ago the same well respected geneticist from UCLA went further and his 2016 Study reaffirmed his previous 1991 Genetic Study...  The Red Wolf is neither a Species or a Subspecies.

So why is Director Ashe posting a "Reward" for an animal he "Knowingly Knows is NOT protected under the Endangered Species Act?

The Federal General Accounting Office (GAO) will get us that answer...

Until then and given USFWS knows the "Biological Identity" of the Red Wolf it seems advisable for Fish to retract its Reward for the December 21, 2015 Gunshot Red Wolf...

Lynn - Do you find it beyond obvious why the Red Wolf Plantiffs have pushed their pending case against USFWS back close to a year at the time it was calendared for its next event?

I'd suggest it's the Plantiffs plan to lose gracefully by allowing Fish to delist and end the Red Wolf program before they have to go back to court. 

Let's not forget the entire case centered around USFWS halting Adaptive Management and the Plantiffs went to court to force USFWS to resume Adaptive Management, staff the field biologist at previous levels and resume pup-stuff'ins.

None of this has occurred yet the Plantiffs now spend all their time begging for money off uninformed donors, they should be ashamed especially the Red Wolf Coalition where their Directors Salary consumes 87.5% of their gross revenue.

This is unfortunate (McKittrick Act) and until this is changed its going to be might difficult to prove a landowner knew the "Biological Identity" of a Gunshot Red Wolf prior to shooting it.

You see the irony here...  USFWS is the real criminal...

More historical data on why USFWS has been unable to charge for Gunshot Red Wolves absent being able to prove the shooter knew the identity (biological) prior to squeezing the trigger. 

Additionally, a recent unpublished Directors Memo speaks to the gross disconnect between field biologist and Special Agents.

In summary many field biologist don't have a clue on section 9 of the ESA and totally pervert Take Assessments and other Biological Opinions written based on indoctrinated personal agendas supplemented where needed with sudo-science.

The good news is that's all about to change! 

You will see the FWS swiftly transformed back to its noble roots and anchored in credible science.   The days of promoting individuals that are nothing more than "Demographic Fillers" over highly accredited career employees will too change.

For everyone else... there's the Park Service, a great place for FWS's agenda driven biologist to corrode awaiting retirement...

USFWS and why they are NOT to be trusted...


The ESA defines “species” to include “any subspecies of fish or wildlife or plant, any distinct population segment of species of vertebrate fish or wildlife or wildlife which interbreeds when mature.” 

Unless it happens to be the USFWS’ position that coyotes are protected by the ESA because they interbreed with grey wolves when mature.... 

There is no logical justification for the continued protection of Red Wolves.

USFWS has known officially the Invented Red Wolf is NOT covered under the ESA yet has operated the program as an illegal fraud since June of 1991.

Most disturbing is Fish has continued operate with total disregard for the funds the've been appropriated by Congress.

Why does this matter... 

It's simple, it's an agenda "Invented" by Ronald Nowak and its his "Range Map" that he "Envisioned" Red Wolves may have been in North Carolina.

Yet Nowak admitted NO Physical Evidence exist to support the Red Wolf ever existed within North Carolina!

If Ronald Nowak was fine with "Inventing" the Red Wolf...  One may assume he too "Invent" the Historic Range??

Where Nowak got it so wrong was the Red Wolf is only "Historic" to a few acres in Tacoma, Washington...  The Point Defiance Zoo...

Is it just a coincidence the "Available" Military Funding happens to be the same $38,000,000.00 that's needed by USFWS to purchase 11K Acres of proposed Red Wolf Habitat used to expand the Red Wolf into Hyde County?

Since when did an Invented Red Wolf override "National Security"??

Here is what David Mech, Senior Scientist Biological Resources Division, U.S. Geological Survey and Adjunct Professor in the Department of Fisheries, Wildlife and Conservation Biology, and Ecology, Evolution and Behavior at the University of Minnesota.

It's noteworthy that Mech has studied wolves and their prey since the late  1950's.

**Update**

Red Wolf Hunting Permit??  More quagmire for the USFWS... 

DOJ issued the below memo that seems to state the courts have advised it to NOT bring fwd any cases for an alleged illegal "Take" of a Wolf, unless Fish can prove the perpetrator knew the "Biological Identity" of the Wolf prior to the take.


(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170120/41b7f290d90d2aa8179df4b4b46e32f0.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170120/385ec741ec43b1abe32008f77606325e.jpg)


The recent Congressional Inquiry brought the "True" Biological Identity of the Red Wolf into clear focus, by restating USFWS own 1991 science and the most recent (2016) best available science with DNA proving the Red Wolf is NOT covered under the ESA.

Further, it seems this two page DOJ memo could be summarized therefor as somewhat of a generic / official - Red Wolf Hunting Permit.

Meaning, the Congressional letter confirms the Red Wolf is scientifically a Common Coyote therefor serving to "Identify" it's "Biological Identity", prior to any take. 

It would seem an intended take would be therefor lawful assuming all local and state coyote laws were followed. 

Assessing the facts presented here...  They suggest, it's the  listing of the Red Wolf that's illegal not the intentional take...

Who would have thought an ill advised coyote lawsuit by RWC, AWI and DOW would serve as the action to afford an expansion of lawful hunting opportunity of the common coyote...

SHADES OF THE OLD SOVIET UNION – “Red” Wolf Acolytes of a Dying Ideology

By - Jim Beers, Retired US Fish & Wildlife Service Wildlife Biologist, Special Agent, Refuge Manager, Wetlands Biologist, and Congressional Fellow


At the end of this short article you will find a “news” item from Arkansas State University.  To say that I found it simultaneously sad and reprehensible would be an understatement.  As someone that attended high school in the 1950’s it brought back memories about how the Soviet Union was taking children from their parents and indoctrinating them in radical ideas.  The fact that there were incidents after incidents reported of the children “turning in” their parents for simply listening to the radio or even just to make the child look good to his or her “government” parents deeply impressed us kids as we were mostly from happy families with loving parents.  I look at that introductory photo below and a real chill goes down my spine as I see what those “happy” Soviet children must have looked like.

 

But, I am a man of the Twenty-First Century, a wildlife writer and a recovering bureaucrat: and this article is about (the imaginary “red”) wolves as simple youth propagandizing tools.

 

First, a quick list of comments about the (my) underlined items in the article in sequential order:

1. Nestbox “Collective” – While someone might say Israel has “collectives and so what?”  The very clear inference from the article is the Soviet model wherein only those that toe the state line in everything (climate change anyone?) are allowed in society or in this case the University “family”.  The ruthlessness of the ideology shown in the article of forcible government intervention to impose their Draconian wishes on others is simply masked here by the “happy” children much like other articles on the imposition of government wolves is often introduced by young women in government uniforms cradling a wolf puppy like a newborn child in her arms.

2. A “panel discussion featuring” “prominent voices in the red wolf survival movement”. –

Just as in the Old Soviet Union (or in “scientific” climate change circles) “prominent” = those that agree: all others are “deniers” and “anti-government’ “enemies of the state” or in this case enemies of the University and “science”.  Here we have a State University, funded by everyone, sponsoring one-sided propagandizing by utilizing only supporters of a very controversial matter while again masking it as “happy” students being “led” by “scientists” on the government payroll and no recognition of any credible alternative view.  Ah, but they say, “ranchers, hunters, dog owners, and rural residents stage similar publicity stunts”.  Whether you call it propaganda or publicity to state your views and influence public opinion: when government or the schools or the lobby groups do so with public funds that is WRONG and like it or not, in the USA under our Constitution it is the right of citizens and not government employees or citizens accessing public money to advocate for policies, laws and programs – especially those that harm other citizens for the imagining of Soviet-style radicals.

3. "Red wolves are the only large carnivore species that is solely native to the United States -- truly 'Made in the U.S.A.”  Like old Soviet caricatures of “capitalists” as a propaganda tool, these “comrades” use this imaginary biology as a tool in their propagandizing for a host of other agendas.  “Red” wolves are no more a species than Basset Hounds.  Why “red” wolves mate with and have puppies with coyotes, dogs, “timber” wolves’, “mexican” wolves, “gray” wolves, Asian wolves, European wolves and even Australian dingoes and jackals when and if the opportunity presents itself.  What is a “Specie” comrades?  To describe one subgroup of the list I just presented as akin to a giraffe or a rhinoceros is a travesty of common sense as well as, like so many of the Soviet “Directives” a rich source of humor for the keen wit of the Oppressed Soviet citizenry.  The “truly Made in the USA” descriptor is such a weak and tawdry appeal to the non-existent patriotism of this movement or the patriotism of their antagonists as to defy comment.

4. The reference” Wildlife Ecology Club at Arkansas State visited’ “because A-State's mascot is the "Red Wolves" is a childish observation that one would expect on a grade school letter to Mom and Dad about an upcoming “field trip” but then like in so many other ways college students are morphing into children from once being young adults preparing to burst forth into the world.  Note also the word “Ecology” which, like “Conservation” and “Preservation” appear throughout the article.  Nowhere are found “management” or “control” and that is because, again like the old Soviet Union humans are simply the fodder for any governmental whim.  In this case we “Preserve” et al and do not “Manage” et al because the human element is not important when in conflict with the animal (“red” wolf in this case) or other government program to enhance bureaucrats, politicians or favored organizations  coffers or power.

5.  Our erstwhile students and their “teachers” would “like to "bring them (i.e. ‘red’ wolves) back to the wilds of Missouri and Arkansas in the near future," said Regina Mossotti, director of animal care and conservation.  So they failed in S. Carolina and Virginia; they are failing in N. Carolina and these folks want to actually spread (i.e. forcibly-impose with ruthless government power) them to TN, MS, AL, LA, AK, MO, KY, IN, OH, IL, TX.  This nonsense about MO and AR is right out of the government playbook to “introduce” wolves with millions of stolen dollars stolen from state Excise Taxes and state wildlife programs by federal bureaucrats “into Yellowstone National Park”.  Ask the rural residents of WY, MT, ID, UT, OR, WA, and CA how that’s working out for them.  One is reminded of Soviet hegemony over the “freed” people of Eastern Europe.  When my wife and drove around Rural Hungary for a week years ago; the scariest memory is the abandoned barracks in barbed wire enclosures for Soviet Troop occupiers about every 15 or 20 miles no matter where you travelled. Hungarians had no say in their governance from far away Moscow just like these worthies envision states that have no say in their governance from far away Washington.

6.  “Panelists include Ashley Rearden, red wolf species survival plan education advisor, and Pete Benjamin, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologist and red wolf recovery program supervisor.  This is like a Soviet “panel” to discuss the place of capitalism in a communist society: which is to say there is NO such place and if even lip service is given to the topic it is only by a skilled propagandist fooling the public (except the witty ones that make it into jokes in the privacy of their government “apartments” (actually crowded government rooms).

7.  “Students majoring in wildlife, fisheries, and conservation; see # 4.

8.   “The rarest animals on earth”? That was probably lifted from the same propaganda writer’s handbook that described the Gulag as “re-education” opportunities for those with anti-Soviet viewpoints.  “Red” wolves are about as rare as coyotes and dogs whose DNA in significant amounts courses through their (the “red” wolve’s) bodies.

9.  The film director sat down with landowners, writers, scientists, nature centers and concerned citizens to examine the cultural landscape.  Does anyone see who’s missing or hear the dog whistle?  Where are the landowners?  Where are the dog owners? Where are the cattle and sheep owners? Where are the hunters? Where are the rural residents strongly opposed to being saddled with wolves of any color despite cutesy-tootsie names like “flower pack” or “OR-1 the intrepid explorer” etc.?  Like Eastern European puppets they are conspicuous in their absence at Soviet soirees.  Does examining “the cultural landscape” send a chill up your spine?  It should because like the old Soviet model cultural landscape = a people or area where attitudes must be changed no matter what it takes.  Welcome to George Orwell’s version of 2017.

10. Note the picture of the “red” wolf at the end.  Isn’t that a coyote?  Is it a cross between a wolf and a coyote?  Isn’t that a dog: look at those legs and that gait, look at those ears, etc.?  Actually it is all three BUT if you are a hunter, or an animal control person, or someone with a dog being attacked by it, or someone with cattle or sheep being attacked by it, or a kid at a school bus stop as it approaches you, or an elderly lady walking out to the mailbox, or someone trying to sell a home near where a wolf has attacked someone CAN YOU KILL IT?  People that have killed such an animal from Missouri; N, E and W; have been subjected to criminal investigation and charges DEPENDENT ON DNA TEST RESULTS FROM GOVERNMENT SCIENTIST.  While digesting that, consider that the same ones conducting this charade are the same bureaucrats and “conservation” organization that were quiet as church mice for 30+ years as power windmills killed millions of songbirds, waterfowl and eagles and now that thousands of these “PROTECTED”-Bird-Killing-Machines are strategically located (in wind/bird-migration-corridors) simply grant a “Kill As Many As You Like” 30-year Permit while prosecuting some schlub for killing one of these dogs or picking up an eagle feather!

 

11.  Last but certainly not least is the cryptic plug, “The Endangered Wolf Center is an Association of Zoos and Aquariums”.  There are wolf propaganda centers all over. Next to federal government grants, ex-bureaucrats can be found employed all over in these nature centers and “give the bureaucrats more money and power” disinformation centers.  This AZA one is a truly classic case in point.  When Clinton was President, the USFWS bureaucrat and formerly unemployed  Congressional staffer in charge of the $45 to 60 Million stolen from the Excise Taxes and State Wildlife Programs and used to force wolves into the Upper Rockies and to open a new government office in California (each of which Congress had refused to authorize or fund) was kept on as a “career employee” after a GAO Audit had confirmed the misuse of the money.  For whatever reason Bush kept him on.  When Obama was elected that person then became Director of the US Fish and Wildlife Service.  Consider the last eight years.  When Trump was elected all such appointees submitted their resignations and must leave by 20 January in two weeks.  Many announce their new positions; this fellow announced he would be the Grand Pooh-Ba of none other than the AZA we see here in the conclusion of this article.  With his “connections”, just like the Director under Clinton that oversaw the misuse of the funds and put the wolves in Yellowstone and with Bush’s election went on to glory to a big job at the National Wildlife Federation and then to become the Grand Pooh-Ba-ess of the “Defrenders” of Wildlife whom she had placed in charge of wolf damage “compensation” as Director: he is expected to still “stay in the game”.

Thus, like Soviet rulers, our government bureaucrats and anti-American-values-organizations see how to absorb all power and rule the rest of us with the cooperation of ruling cliques preserving their own power bases.  Again like the Soviets, indoctrinating the young and marginalizing dissidents is a key part of this.  Ruling adults that think and act like children has always been something tyrants strived for.

When men stand up to tyrants, as in the Kurosawa movie Seven Samurai and it’s American 1960’s movie copy The Magnificent Seven, this subject is highlighted in brilliant detail.  When men submit like children to tyrants they are treated like someone else’s children by the despot.  When men act like adult men they expose the real intent of dictators from time immemorial.  When Yul Brynner and his 6 colleagues get the drop on the bandit chief set to conduct his annual ravage of the village, the bandit chief asks quizzically, “why do men like you defend these villagers?”  When he is told to, “just move on”, the bandit chief leans over and says quietly, “If God did not want them shorn, he would not have made them sheep.”

 
Questions: are we men or sheep? Are they our children or wards of the state?  The way we answer these gives us a glimpse of our future.

STUDENTS AND COMMUNITY INVITED TO SEE 'RED WOLF REVIVAL'
01/05/2017

Students-at-EWC-web

Students from Arkansas State University gathered for a photo during their recent visit to the Endangered Wolf Center in St. Louis.

JONESBORO – The Endangered Wolf Center will present "Red Wolf Revival," the award-winning short documentary by the Nestbox Collective and Susannah Smith, at Arkansas State University.

Open to students, faculty and the public, the screening will be at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 20, in the third floor auditorium of the Reng Student Union (GPS 101 N. Caraway Road).  The North Parking Facility, adjacent to the Union, will be open to the public at no charge.

Following the film, there will be a panel discussion featuring Smith, an award-winning film producer, and other prominent voices in the red wolf survival movement.

"Red wolves are the only large carnivore species that is solely native to the United States -- truly 'Made in the U.S.A.' They are more American than apple pie and baseball combined, yet most Americans don't realize that red wolves exist, let alone that they are on the brink of extinction,” said Virginia Busch, executive director of the Endangered Wolf Center (EWC) in St. Louis.

Several faculty members in the Department of Biological Sciences and student members of the Wildlife Ecology Club at Arkansas State visited the EWC in December to follow-up on their interest in the preservation efforts.  Students are especially interested in the project because A-State's mascot is the "Red Wolves."

In addition to saving red wolves from extinction, the EWC would like to "bring them back to the wilds of Missouri and Arkansas in the near future," said Regina Mossotti, director of animal care and conservation.

In addition to Smith and Mossotti, panelists include Ashley Rearden, red wolf species survival plan education advisor, and Pete Benjamin, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologist and red wolf recovery program supervisor.

Biological sciences faculty are already making plans to incorporate some aspects of red wolf preservation in classes such as "Conservation Biology" and "Biology of Animals," according to Dr. Tom Risch, department chair and professor of animal ecology.

"This is a fantastic opportunity for our students majoring in wildlife, fisheries, and conservation to partner with an established and renowned conservation organization in the Endangered Wolf Center," he said.  "Our students are excited to be part of this partnership as it develops and moves forward."

The film "Red Wolf Revival" has received several awards, including “best conservation film” and “best short film” at the International Wildlife Film Festival and “best documentary” at the Progeny Film Festival.

The short documentary details the struggles facing the last remaining wild population of the American red wolf. Once native to Missouri and the entire Southeastern United States, red wolves are now on the brink of extinction, with fewer than 50 left in the wild.

The film is centered on the historic recovery effort in Eastern North Carolina, and documents the multifaceted struggle to reintroduce one of the rarest animals on earth in the face of cultural, economic and biological challenges in North Carolina.

The film director sat down with landowners, writers, scientists, nature centers and concerned citizens to examine the cultural landscape in the region, how the story became urgent, and explore the implications of the changes to come.

Interested individuals may view a preview of the film online.  For more information on the film, the film trailer, and upcoming events, one may visit redwolfrevival.org.

Endangered Wolf Center

The Endangered Wolf Center in St. Louis, Mo., is the premier wolf conservation, education, reproduction, and research center in the United States. Its mission to preserve and protect Mexican wolves, red wolves and other wild canid species, with purpose and passion, through carefully managed breeding, reintroduction and inspiring education programs.  The Center was founded in 1971 by Marlin Perkins and his wife, Carol. Perkins is best known as the longtime host of television’s “Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom.” The Endangered Wolf Center is an Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) certified facility and is a 501(C)3 non-profit.

Dr. Robert Wayne (UCLA) & Susan Jenks (Berkley) previous comments - Provide insight on how Point Defiance Zoo / SSP Invented the Red Wolf

* USFWS should take note of both Wayne and Jenks professional willingness to convey the facts in just that... factual context.  Both should be applauded by the DOI and their peers.


“I kept running the analyses and checking and double-checking for contamination,” Jenks said.

The conclusion, however, was inescapable.

“Finally it occurred to me it would make sense that they’re hybrids,” Jenks said.

Morphological measurements had long been one of the traditional methods of taxonomy. But Wayne and Jenks argued that, in the case of the red wolf, the Fish and Wildlife Service’s analysis had been unreliable.

After testing the DNA of red wolves living in zoos, they examined old samples from wild wolves as well. They looked at 77 blood samples taken from wild canids in Texas and Louisiana between 1974 and 1976, shortly before the red wolves’ rescue.

Each sample had been classified as red wolf, coyote, or hybrid based on morphological criteria.

When Wayne and Jenks analyzed the DNA, however, their initial findings were confirmed. The majority of wild red wolf samples had coyote genotypes, while the rest had gray wolf genotypes. Once again, Wayne and Jenks found no unique red wolf DNA.

Their conclusion called into question the U.S. government’s methodology for choosing red wolves to be whisked off to the zoo in Tacoma.

"To me it looked kind of like an experiment in selective breeding,” Wayne said.

"You have some idea in your mind what a species should look like, and you pick individuals that you think look like that ideal.”  Wayne continued.

While coyotes and gray wolves exhibit clear genetic differences, the researchers found that red wolves have no unique features and are classifiable as either coyotes or gray wolves.

The researchers looked not only at red wolves kept in captive-breeding programs in zoos
, but also at genetic material taken from pelts dating back to 1905.

Just Released -  Fake News...  Defenders of Wildlife publishes Fake News hit job on USFWS. 

Article omits their own VP Co-Authored the "Puppy-Killing-Plan" (Adaptive Management) to curb hybridization.  It further failed to admit the best commercial science proves this Fake Wolf is defined by DNA as a Common Coyote-

But yet if USFWS was inches from a taxonomy correction to remove what DNA has proven to be a "Fake Wolf" I suspect Defenders is twisted-up... 

With no Fake Wolf it's mighty hard for this group to push its Fake News in an effort to gain authentic  donations...

There is a great post over at the Red Wolf Coalitions Facebook page...  However it's lacking some additional commentary to fully explain the Congressional Rider they speak of...

First it is widely accepted the current Gray Wolf delisting bill affects states where the Gray Wolf has "Recovered".

What Congress chose to include in this Bill is a provision that circumvents the Public Trust Pimps from filing their endless ESA Sue & Settle Lawsuits to keep these animals on the ESA Endangered List after they have "Recovered".

Followers of this site will understand, these Pimps have little use for sound science only pseudo science enabling these Wolves to remain as "Listed" and Endangered, therefor providing additional states to solicit $$ under fear mongering email alert tatics while extorting its residents out of their hard earned money by way of Donor Appeals. 

The worst of the bunch is the Defenders of Wildlife - Donor's Beware!

Short of the above, it's a great piece on the importance of the ESA and a balanced ecosystem...

Subject: 3M Corp / Darting Collars / USFWS /  Wolves


Good afternoon,

We are completing an investigative piece on the USFWS efforts to restore the Endangered Red Wolf to portions of its alleged range. 

Through these efforts we became aware of 3M Corps involvement with the USFWS Wolf Introduction Program, as a Testing Partner.

3M's Engineers were contracted to develop a "Darting Collar" that was to be placed on each Wolf, where it could be remotely fired in case the Wolf became of concern or posed a public safety hazard.

We would like to have a quote and or reply from 3M Corp addressing the published statements made by Ms. DeBlieu and Ms. Beeland regarding the use of  "Borrowed Mutts" from the Dare County Animal Shelter where as 3M Engineers tested these collars. 

Ms. Beeland states; "However, early test of the collars at Alligator River showed they had a very short signal range for the device that triggered the drug-filled darts.  On more than one occasion, the red wolf team borrowed mutts from the Dare County pound and fitted them with the test collars.  When the system worked, the dogs yelped, teetered drunkenly, and then collapsed after a few minutes."

Question's

Does 3M Corp regularly engage in collaborative efforts with NGO's, State and or Federal Agency's to recruit the use of "Mutts" from local County Animal Shelters? 

What precautions were taken by 3M Corp to mitigate the effects stated by Ms. Beeland?

Is 3M Corp aware of the final disposition of these "Borrowed Mutts"?

Ms. Beeland states this occurred on "Numerous Occasions", how many times did this testing occur and what was the total number of test "Mutts" borrowed?

Did 3M Corp have written authorization from the Dare County Animal Shelter for this type of Animal Testing?

Were any of these Mutts individuals pets that may have been relinquished to Dare Co. Animal Shelter for extenuating circumstances?

If yes, were the previous owners notified and made aware of this ongoing activity?
Did any "Borrowed Mutts" show signs of long term health issues and or expire during testing?

Thank you -

Dear Ms. Harvey,

The below excerpts are disturbing for many reasons. Please provide the required permits necessary for USFWS biologists to capture, possess, heave and feed live game animals to wolves located in high fenced enclosed pens.

Also, just because you should know, included is disgusting information regarding experimentation with "borrowed mutts" from the Dare Co. pound.

I would like the permit information regarding capturing, heaving and feeding live game animals to penned wolves in whatever format is most cost effective for the Service.

I am a private citizen and will pay the costs up to $1,000 without the need for you to ask my permission.

If I missed something please let me know.

Thanks,

"To prepare for the release of the first pairs of red wolves, the biologist several months earlier had begun giving the wolves wild fare instead of dog food. Every few days, they pitched dead raccoons, possums, muskrats, rabbits, and road-killed deer over the pen fences".

"But it was uncertain if the captive-born wolves still had their wild chase instincts intact".

"To test this, the biologist experimented by HEAVING LIVE PREY into the pens, starting with raccoons and nutria and culminating in a deer".

"When the wolves successfully chased and killed their confined prey, the team had good reason to be hopeful".

"(Today the biologist say they would never repeat an experiment like this for fear of lawsuits from animal-rights groups, but it reflects the deep unknowns in the early days of the program".)

Tom Remington on…  Environmental Radicals, Animal Perverts and Preying on Students

This morning Jim Beers shared some of his thoughts in a brief email exchange. I’ll attempt to further encapsulate his pithy thoughts.

Beers was referencing an article that attempted to address the difficulties wildlife managers in Canada are having with creating a “delicate balancing act” between protecting the gray wolf and saving a rapidly dwindling woodland caribou herd. In the article, the author writes this: “It’s not that one species is being given preference over another, said Environment and Parks regional resource manager Dave Hervieux, but controlling wolves is imperative to the survival of the caribou population.”

I took the liberty to highlight the portion of the above quote that Beers takes issue with when he says, “This quote from the article is an absolutely sterling example of how far our language is being corrupted by government and radical groups.  It is clear when racial crimes of religion-based terror occur that the media, the police, the government use all sorts of evasions and wordsmithing to mask the truth and create a lie, for instance Benghazi being “caused by a video” (that no one had seen).”
If I might further clarify what I believe he was saying, the statement is avoiding the truth. It is not true to say that one species is NOT given preference over the other. The truth is, one species IS being given preference and to deny this fact does no good at all – it masks the truth to create a lie.

He goes on to give other examples of how manipulating words creates a lie out of truth. Argument can be made as to whether this “manipulation” of words is deliberate brainwash and mind control or plain ignorance. It is a fact that deliberate word manipulation exists. Where the line forms separating the planned mind control from the echo chambers of media, education, police, government, etc. is sometimes difficult to recognize, but there is one. Most don’t want to see this reality, I assume because it hurts too much.

To build on this concise observation, one first must be willing to recognize and accept the fact that we are all subject to the control of mass media – media that takes on every size, shape and style, which includes government, education, music, news, movies, video games, police, etc..

It was in December of 2014 that members of the U.S. House Committee on Natural Resources released an informational document warning us that serious danger lurked in this world with the existence of propaganda, disguised as science, being used for political gain and the furtherance of private agendas – those agendas often fueled by corrupt money.

Committee Chairman at the time, Doc Hastings, said, “…potential bias about how ESA data and science are reviewed casts serious doubt on the credibility of these decisions, and provides more evidence that the ESA needs continued oversight and updating.”
Perhaps the question should be posed as to whether or not the scientific process is deliberately being bastardized for political and financial gain, or are we simply witnessing the results of many years of manipulating words of truth in order to create a lie – that which Jim Beers speaks of? Probably both.

How then, can we expect anything to change, or more specifically how can we return to a time when the real, honest, scientific process was in full dress mode? Never, is probably the right answer. Our infiltrated and corrupt education factories are pumping out mindless, brainwashed automatons that never question what they are told. They believe whatever is thrown at them, leaving their institutions of higher mind control and propagandizing, only to go about their business living the lies they were given by the corrupt purveyors of manipulated words that created the lies.

Here is but one example. Arkansas State University, to become compliant with the totalitarian act of political correctness, i.e. censorship and the destruction of the First Amendment, changed their “Indian” mascot to become the Red Wolves. So now thousands of students there flash the hand sign for the “red wolf,” which more closely resembles the symbol for Satanic worship more than a wolf.

However, what better target for the environmental radicals and animal perverts to prey on than easily mind-controlled students who think they are “red wolves,” to foist their “manipulated words into a lie.”

We see on this page of the ASU website, information about how students are going to become involved with the Endangered Wolf Center in St. Louis, Missouri and be subjected to propaganda (a movie) about saving the red wolf.


The first thing that needs to be said is that there is no longer any such animal as a “red wolf” – at least not that is defined through DNA. I suppose you can call anything any name you wish but that doesn’t change the fact that red wolves, as they once existed, we are told, cannot be found in our fields and streams nor can they be “reintroduced” to be protected and somehow, magically “revive” the red wolf population.

The Endangered Wolf Center extols the successes of red wolves in North Carolina. They can twist and manipulate words all they want but the experiment in North Carolina was an immense failure, in addition to living the lie that the semi-wild dogs the Federal Government was illegally dumping onto private land was not a red wolf at all. It was nothing more than a hybrid of coyote, domesticated dog and other “Heinz 57” admixtures. Federal biologists, eager to perpetuate and perpetrate their lies, simply called the mongrel a red wolf.

But here we see the environmental radicals and animal perverts preying on students who will be told probably every lie that ever existed when it comes to wolves, coyotes and endangered species.  If anyone knew better, they could see that this is a criminal act. In addition, people should be outraged to think that the thousands of dollars invested in a college education is being wasted on being subjected to some emotional clap-trap lies, sold as science.

If something isn’t done about this outrage, there is no hope that any university will produce people to go into the world and save the real scientific process. Instead we will continue to see apologetic word manipulations in order to mask truth and turn it into the lies that the environmentalists and animal perverts want.

Has USFWS just been caught again? (Martin County Commission)

You decide…

WNCT's - Pierce Legeion, reports from "Martin County"!!


http://wnct.com/2017/01/24/roanoke-river-wildlife-rivers-hoping-to-expand-for-the-future/



WINDSOR, N.C. (WNCT) – The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is looking to the future. They’re hoping a proposed expansion plan will help guarantee wildlife has a place to call home well into the future.

Wildlife habitat in the East is being threatened by two factors: urban growth and sea level rise.

The proposed changes would increase the size of the Roanoke River Wildlife Refuge from 30,000 to 250,000 acres. Matthew Connolly, manager of the Roanoke River National Wildlife Refuge, is one of the people looking for a solution to the problem.

“With three to four inches of sea level rise over the next 150 to 200 years, a large portion of land on the Albemarle-Pamilco Sound peninsula is gonna go underwater,” said Connolly. “That’s gonna make wildlife move inland to escape rising sea levels.”

And those animals will have to go somewhere.

“We don’t want them going into your backyard,”
added Connolly.


“The Roanoke River is a perfect place for them. The Roanoke River corridor in our projections remains relatively free of urban growth through 2100.”

It will take a year if not more for the proposed changes to be approved.

“There’s gonna be no eminent domain, no taking of anybody’s property,” Connolly was quick to add. “We are only dealing with willing sellers. Folks may have worries or concerns that we’re gonna take their land. That’s not the case.”

Martin County Public meeting on the proposed expansion continue through the week. A list of meeting times and places is below:

Tuesday Jan 24th

Martin County: 6-8 pm

Martin County Extension Office

104 Kehukee Park Rd

Given the title of this article we must restate, it's the Genetic DNA discovered by UCLA back in 1991 that happens to be the Scientific Fact of why the Red Wolf didn't make past the George H.W. Bush Presidency of 1991...

Irregardless of (political) listing, it doesn't mean the listing taxonomy is correct, hence why USFWS has a history of utilizing taxonomic correction to ensure only the listing of true species and subspecies as defined by Congress and pursuant with their very intent.

Below is the article with some other valid points, a worthy read. 

Only again, the Red Wolf never made it past the 1991 Presidency, thus pinning on Secretary Zinke and Trump is dead on arrival - 



Progressive Pulse Red Wolf -

Under pressure, the US Fish and Wildlife Service is updating its controversial red wolf recovery plan but scientists and  environmental groups are concerned that the Trump administration could doom the red wolf to extinction.

There are only 30 to 45 endangered red wolves living in the wild in five counties in northeastern North Carolina, down from a peak of 150 in 2005. The decrease has been attributed in part to the number of wolves being shot, either accidentally, when they are mistaken for coyotes, or intentionally. Most recently, in late December 2016, a red wolf was illegally shot and killed in the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge, which is federal property. USFWS and private groups are offering a $16,500 reward for information leading to an arrest.

The recovery plan for red wolves has not been updated since 1990. Last September, USFWS released a memo proposing   a policy shift that was condemned by scientists and environmental groups in part because it called for the relocation of most of he wild red wolves to zoos. USFWS justified the proposal by alleging the captive red wolf population was unsustainable. Zookeepers and wildlife biologists sharply disagreed and issued a public statement pointing out USFWS’s failure to accurately interpret the science.

In December, scientists and activists petitioned USFWS and Interior Secretary Sally Jewell to revise the plan to better incorporate the science behind red wolf habitats and recovery.

In a letter dated Jan. 19, USFWS Southeast Regional Director Cynthia Dohner wrote to the Center for Biological Diversity, one of the petitioners, that it would revise the plan by 2018. Meanwhile, the agency will develop a Species Status Assessment by October 2017 , which will be used as the basis for a revised recovery plan.  “We will develop the SSA using the best available scientific and commercial information,” Dohner wrote, “and we will also consider the information you submitted with your petition.”

“We hope the plan will be based on that science as a roadmap to recovery,” said Collette Adkins, senior attorney with the Center for Biological Diversity.

However, the red wolf may not survive the Trump administration. Red wolves are among the more than 1,300 animals and plants protected under the Endangered Species Act, which itself is endangered. U.S. Rep. Ryan Zinke, a Montana Republican, is President Trump’s nominee for Interior Secretary. That position oversees USFWS, millions of acres of public lands and the administration of the Endangered Species Act.

In Congress, Zinke voted against federal protections for Mexican wolves and lynx. In 2012, Zinke ran for lieutenant governor of Montana. A Christmas card sent out by Zinke and gubernatorial candidate Neil Livingstone, featured an illustration of the candidates, a dead Mexican wolf and Zinke carrying an assault rifle.


Merry Christmas from Interior Secretary nominee Ryan Zinke (Christmas card from the Zinke campaign for Montana lieutenant governor)
Congressional Republicans, led by Utah Rep. Rob Bishop, also want to repeal the act, established in 1973. Bishop has called the act “dysfunctional” because it interferes with economic development. The timber and development industries often clash with the act because they can’t log or build on lands with endangered species habitats, at least not easily.

“The Endangered Species Act is under attack,” Adkins said. “We’re concerned how it could be undermined under a Trump administration.”

Accurately correlating the defining DNA of a Red Wolf is simply nothing more than a Common Coyote seems to be something the NY Wolf Center is just unable to do? 

One thing we do know, is the Red Wolf Cult is "Big Business" and apparently highly profitable!

That number is even worse for the Marine Corps, where 74 percent of its F-18s – some of the oldest  – are not ready for combat operations.


Yet, there seems to be a secret plan in play to "Divert" up-to $38M Taxpayer "Defense" Funds to "Expand" the Illegal Red Wolf Program into Hyde County -

Where do you stand...

Red Wolves & "Red Herrings"...

Comprehending the expansion of Red Wolf Recovery Area and how your stuck with the bill -

USFWS issued a recommendation to pursue the acquisition of 11K acres, expanding the Red Wolf Recovery Program into Hyde County after USFWS lied, recently announced it was curtailing the USFWS RW Program to only Dare County.

The "Red Herring" lies in the Annual Drainage District "Expense" the USFWS is set to assume...  All reportedly due to an allocation of "Defense Funds"...  Why was this "Massive" expense purposely(?) omitted from the USFWS report? 

With USFWS existing maintenance deficit where does USFWS expect to "raid" these annual drainage expense funds from?? 

The "Red Herring" remains why USFWS is expanding their illegal Red Wolf Program by way of purchasing a 11k acre farm that its already purchased several times over byway of conservation easments, funded by taxpayer funds?

Is USFWS "Under the Gun"?

Perhaps, the've taken new stance... 

It appears USFWS has NOT updated their Red Wolf Mortality since they learned of the 2016 Best Commercially Available - Princeton Peer Reviewed DNA Science.

Proving any Gunshot Red Wolf is factually nothing more than the invasive non-native Common Coyote thus Fish is unable to document any more Red Wolf Gunshot Deaths?

Guess this is why USFWS has not officially updated the recent Gunshot Red Wolves on its own site -

Today the NCGA filed a bill directing North Carolina Wildlife Commission to restore the lawful "Nighttime" take of Coyotes (Vermin) in 5 Counties!

This is an obvious need, since the DOI is acutely aware of the Red Wolfs "Invented" Origin. 

What an embarrassment to the USFWS having been caught red handed perpetrating a $36M Hybrid Hoax on its neighboring private landowners!

UCLA's Genetic Expert Robert Wayne said...


"I kept running the analyses and checking and double-checking for contamination,” Jenks said.

The conclusion, however, was inescapable.

“Finally it occurred to me it would make sense that they’re hybrids,” Jenks said.

Morphological measurements had long been one of the traditional methods of taxonomy. But Wayne and Jenks argued that, in the case of the red wolf, the Fish and Wildlife Service’s analysis had been unreliable.

After testing the DNA of red wolves living in zoos, they examined old samples from wild wolves as well. They looked at 77 blood samples taken from wild canids in Texas and Louisiana between 1974 and 1976, shortly before the red wolves’ rescue.

Each sample had been classified as red wolf, coyote, or hybrid based on morphological criteria.

When Wayne and Jenks analyzed the DNA, however, their initial findings were confirmed. The majority of wild red wolf samples had coyote genotypes, while the rest had gray wolf genotypes. Once again, Wayne and Jenks found no unique red wolf DNA.

Their conclusion called into question the U.S. government’s methodology for choosing red wolves to be whisked off to the zoo in Tacoma.

"To me it looked kind of like an experiment in selective breeding,” Wayne said.

"You have some idea in your mind what a species should look like, and you pick individuals that you think look like that ideal.”  Wayne continued.


WOW!!  - Wayne's statements echo what Carley stated as well!

Odie - Heres a few of the GPS Tracking Collar reports, if you have not seen the data. 

As much as those collars cost, I assume when on a Non-Native, Invasive (Vermin) Coyote Collars battery gets low, they can easily identify a trap smart Coyote, shoot it enabling recovery staff to retrieve their GPS Collar?

One of these actually sits on the Red Wolf Coalitions Board, writes children study material for the Taxpayer funded NC Zoo system.

"Most landowners have been thrilled to participate in the program, MacKenzie says, because they feel that they are giving back to nature and restoring their state’s heritage."

Tom,

Were you misquoted in the recent National Geographic red wolf story or did you just decide to tell a bold faced lie? Please explain. If you lied, you should resign.

While I've got your attention, did a USFWS (retired) employee really kill the "red wolf" found on 9/30/14?  https://vimeo.com/127949184  Answer this question for me and everyone else on this email now.

The breaking of laws and misrepresentations by USFWS personnel and wolf proponents are the downfall of the red wolf reintroduction program. A man is only as good as his word. USFWS is fast losing all integrity. What a shame. USFWS should be better than this. I hope you were misquoted.

Ask yourself this question...

Since USFWS "Confirmed" this Red Wolf was "Gunshot" (see x-ray) yet USFWS "Closed" the case and stated there was a "High Likelihood the Endangered Red Wolf Died of Heartworms"... 

Question...  Is it now permissible to "Shoot" an endangered species, so as long you do not kill it and it has "Heartworms"?

Is a "Confirmed" Gunshot Red Wolf not considered an illegal act under the ESA?

Why does USFWS continue to "Cover-Up" this obvious case and even "Lied" to the Office of Inspector Generals Office?

Congressional Oversight Hearing??

If those are not birdshot in the ex-ray then they must be heartworm eggs.  When you investigate one of your own...............   It's like what Robert Wayne said about the red wolf, " when one studies the red wolf they see what they want to see."

Quote from the final USFWS Red Wolf Coordinator before USFWS declared this position functionally extinct.

Guess, it's never good to be named the Coordinator an Non-Essential Experiment...


"The Red Wolf reintroduction was always designed as an experiment, Rabon said. Nobody knew what was going to happen with the wolves, other species or the landscape".


Dr. Rabon was so right...

Had a great morning at the DDC learning about how much the North Carolina eco-system needed the Red Wolf to balance prey...

It was at that point, I looked to my right and then fully understood what type of "balance" the Caged Wolf Purveyor was speaking of...

FWS Must Restore 'Lost Credibility,' New Director (Ashe) Says

By LAURA PETERSEN of Greenwire (Publised in NY Times)

Quotes -

Dan Ashe, a 16-year agency veteran who took the helm at the end of June, said his primary goal as director is to create an environment within FWS built around a commitment to science and excellence in public service.

"At our core, we continue to recognize that we are a scientific organization, and that we are committed to the fundamental practice of science as a bedrock in the organization," Ashe said in a sit-down interview this week with Land Letter.

"I think what we have to recover is the credibility that was lost as a result of that level of political review," Ashe said.  "All the decisionmaking on endangered species listings, it occurs here in the Fish and Wildlife Service," Ashe said. "And that is, in my experience, unprecedented."

Jamie Rappaport Clark, who directed the service from 1997 to 2001 under President Clinton, said that during her tenure she would have open discussions with then-Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt about species listings, but none of her decisions were ever challenged by political appointees.

Clark, who is now executive vice president of the nonprofit group Defenders of Wildlife, said she would be surprised if the Interior secretary had no involvement with listing decisions, because many are controversial (Land Letter, Jan. 27). "It's hard for me to imagine, but if so, that's pretty amazing," Clark said.

Ashe said the agency needs to make sure that an autonomous, science-driven decisionmaking process endures no matter who is president or secretary, and he hopes to implement such a framework during his time in office.

Litigation battles

While defending the right of advocacy groups to file lawsuits over ESA decisions, Ashe said litigation has become a "business model" for some groups and is threatening to undermine FWS's ability to do what's best for imperiled species.

"In the area of listings, litigation has produced an environment where we are unable to set biologically based priorities," Ashe said.

In addition to environmentalists, Ashe said, FWS must work harder to gain the trust of individuals and groups wary of environmental regulation.

Many ranchers and farmers, as well as the energy and mining industries and private property rights groups, have long complained that endangered species management impedes their ability to use or develop land.

"There are flexibilities within the Endangered Species Act that will allow us to work with private land owners and others so we'll be able to do a good job conserving the species without unduly affecting ranchers and the working landscape," Ashe said.

"I've seen worse political climates," Ashe said, who joined FWS in 1995 as Republicans won control of Congress and the House Natural Resources Committee was headed by ESA critics Reps. Don Young (R-Alaska) and Richard Pombo (R-Calif.). "We survived that era and maybe came out stronger," said Ashe.

Are you confused too?? 

The Red Wolf Coalition, states they work closely with the USFWS, yet they sued USFWS in Federal Court.  The suit remains in litigation.

When you've been provided numerous grants by USFWS, how do you sue the agency and continue to insinuate you have a Memorandum of Understanding (partnership) with the very agency you've just sued?

Point Defiance Captive Zoo - Genetic Genocide and the Red Wolf Adaptive Scheme -


Eric Gese recently reported the Red Wolf Field Team had "Removed" (Euthanized) 37 Litters of Pups.  Totaling 259 Euthanized Pups based on 6 (average) per litter.

Gese confirms 7 Litters of Endangered Red Wolves were Euthanized bringing the total individual pups to 394 based on 35 Endangered Red Wolf Pups at, 5 pups (average) per litter.  Later it was determined the 35 Endangered Pups that were previously Euthanized, were misidentified by the Team.

What does adaptive "Genetic Genocide" look like? 

Why are the Animal Welfare Institute, Defenders of Wildlife and the Red Wolf Coalition suing to force USFWS to resume this controversial scheme?

Eric Gese recently reported the Red Wolf Field Team had "Removed" (Euthanized) 37 Litters of Pups.  Totaling 259 Euthanized Pups based on 6 *(average) per litter.

Gese confirms 7 Litters of Endangered Red Wolves were Euthanized bringing the total individual pups to 394 based on 35 Endangered Red Wolf Pups at, 5 pups *(average) per litter.

Later it was determined the 35 Endangered Pups that were previously Euthanized, were misidentified by the Team.


When we add all of the Hybrid Pups the USFWS Red Wolf Adaptive Field Team has Euthanized, to the number of documented Hybrids within the Point Defiance Zoo were reaching some serious "Mortality". 

This is may be the reason the NCWRC Human Dimension Study was apparently declared Functionally Extinct as it was totally quiet polling the "Social Acceptance" of Adaptive Management?


Total Genetic Genocide Mortality:

Initial Founders Culls          358 Animals (1978) via Point Defiance Captive Zoo Studbook
Captive Bred Culls               218 Animals (1977-2002) via Point Defiance Captive Zoo Studbook
Den Hunting Coyote Pups    259 Newborn Pups (1999-2015) 37 documented euthanized litters (7 pups per litter)
Den Hunting Red Wolf Pups  35 Newborn Pups (1999-2015) 7 documented euthanized Red Wolf Litters (5 pups per-litter)
Genetic Genocide Mortality 870 Animals with 294 being confirmed Newborn Pups


*This DOES NOT include any of the Red Wolves that Drowned due to 1999 adaptive management practices Co-Written by the Defenders of Wildlife and the Red Wolf Coalition, or any wolves that are included in USFWS Mortality Death Reports coded  as "Management Related".  Thus its USFWS own Experiment that has inflicted human caused mortality to over 1000 Canids now statistically identified as Euthanized.


Where did the "Introduced" Wolves in North Carolina originate from many ask?? Lets start with the "Very First Wolf"...

All of the "Introduced" Wolf like Canids both Legally and Illegally (Private Land Releases) came from the Captive Breeding Program…

"The First" Red Wolf Captured from the Wild happened to be a Female. This capture occurred in Texas on February 13, 1969. From their she was transferred to Oklahoma on April 23 1969 and subsequently sent to Tacoma Washington on February 18, 1974. She later died while in Tacoma's captive environment on February 18th, 1975.

It is very noteworthy with relation to being a "Hybrid", this wolf, the very first wolf captured is documented as "U" = "Undetermined (Hybrid) Unless Confirmed".

The USFWS went on to capture additional wolves in Texas and Louisiana with the last documented capture occurring in Louisiana on April 6, 1978. The USFWS began culling the total number of captured wolves from 400 down to 42 of the "Purist" Wolves.

These 42 Red Wolf like Canids founded what today we all know as the "Captive Breeding Program.

May 3, 1977 was a joyous day… The birth of the "First Captive" Wolf was born in Tacoma's Captive Breeding Facility…

This very "Wolf" was not only the "First" Wolf born in Captivity but it was a documented "Hybrid"…

How is it, that out of 400 Captured Red Wolves followed by Culling further reducing them to only 42 founders of the "Purist" Red Wolf like Canids the "First" Wolf born into captivity was deemed to be a "Hybrid"??

USFWS widely publicizes (even today) the "Original Founders" as being only 12 Wolves… Is this yet another "Lie"??

When you further research these numbers they reflect, only 12 of the "Original" 42 Canids were "N" = "Animal Not Hybrid". 5 of the 42 are listed as "U" = "Undetermined Unless Confirmed". The remaining "25" were found to be "Y" = "Animal Determined a Hybrid".

71.4% of the "Purist" 42 Wolves are were "Not" Red Wolves…

Now seeing such "Garbage In" its no surprise that the "First" Canid born into captivity was "Garbage Out"…

When you analyze the first 10 years "Captive" Wolf Births its reviles North Carolina's Wolf like Canid "Introduction" Program …

81 "Hybrids" are documented being born into captivity during the "First" 10 years of the Captive Breeding Program (1977-1987).

1987, The first "Wild Wolf like Canids" are "Introduced" to Alligator River NWR. Every one of these wolves came from… Yep... the Captive Breeding Program.

137 additional "Hybrids" are documented from 1988-2002 within the Captive Breeding Program.

Today - USFWS has "Introduced" / Dumped, 132 Red Wolf "Like" Canids (1987-2013) onto North Carolina, these 132 Canids are a product of a "Garbage In" Hybrid "Wolf Mill" turned Federally Funded $34M "Science Project&quo
