Wolves at a Crossroads: 2011

  • Copyright, Living With Wolves, 2011

Wolves at a Crossroads was prepared for members of Congress in 2011. Its purpose was to counter the misleading rhetoric from state governments that led to proposed legislative intervention to remove endangered species protections from gray wolves in the Northern Rockies. In an unprecedented move that violated the Endangered Species Act, this population of wolves lost protections through a congressional rider attached to a “must-pass” appropriations bill, which also prohibited any future judicial review. As a government shutdown loomed, Congress worked to pass the bill, and neither wolves nor the rider that delisted them were debated during the proceedings. As a result, wolves in the Northern Rockies are still being needlessly and relentlessly killed. This publication summarizes the controversy leading up to the 2011 delisting. Much of the same misinformation is still prolific today.
