"Official"- Red Wolf Reintroduction Scandal / Red Wolf Scandal
« Last post by citizensscience on June 27, 2018, 09:10:01 PM »
USFWS announces much anticipated Red Wolf proposed rule.

Today, USFWS released its proposed rule and pending comment period.  The Service in summary shrunk the size of the Red Wolf management area to include Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge and the Dare County Bombing Range, each being large parcels of federal land. 

The downward adjustment in the Services designated management area is consistent with number of "known wolves" (VHF Tracking Collared) identified by aircraft.  This is aligned with the lack of know wolves as VHF tracking flights by program personnel have been constrained by budgets. 

It's easy to realize, the more funding the USFWS awarded grants applicants to study the Red Wolfs the less was available for aircraft tracking flights and personal.

Recent USFWS reports indicate mortality due gunshot isn't a driver of the population, with the last report of a suspected gunshot Red Wolf being 17 months ago.

Until today's headlines, most were unaware of the longstanding federal policy that permitted the take of a Non-Essential, Experimental Red Wolf should the take occur beyond the designated 5 county areas consisting of Hyde, Dare, Terrell, Beaufort and Washington Counties.

The media continues to under report the facts, case being USFWS illegally removed 120 Red Wolves from the Captive Zoo subsequently introducing 132 wolves in total despite only having federal authority to remove no more than six mated pairs (12 Wolves).

Many of these illegally removed and introduced wolves where released on private lands.

USFWS has always allowed the take of these Red Wolves outside the perimeter of the experimental area.  Therefor the facts as they are, this proposal by Secretary Zinke does nothing to alter USFWS policy with regard to take, it only amends the perimeter...
