Tea Party Bill Would Eviscerate Endangered Species Act!

As America Celebrates 40th Anniversary of Landmark Law, Right-wing Senators Seek to Tear It Apart

.

WASHINGTON— Tea Party senators introduced a bill this week that would effectively end the protection of most endangered species in the United States and gut some of the most important provisions of the Endangered Species Act. Senate Bill 1731, introduced by Tea Party Sens. Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Dean Heller, would end protections for most of the species that are currently protected by the Act and make it virtually impossible to protect new species under the law. It would also eliminate protection for habitat that’s critical to the survival of rare and struggling animals and plants around the country.

.

“Here we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Endangered Species Act this year, and the Tea Party wants to tear it limb from limb,” said Brett Hartl, endangered species policy director at the Center for Biological Diversity. “It’s really a sad testament to how out of touch the Tea Party has become with the American people, and how beholden they are to industry special interests that are more interested in profits than saving wildlife, wild places and a livable future for the next generation.”

.

In its 40-year history, the Endangered Species Act has been more than 99 percent successful at preventing extinction for wildlife under its protection and has put hundreds of plants and animals on the path to recovery, including bald eagles, grizzly bears, whales and sea turtles.

.

Despite this successful track record, the bill’s most extreme provision would require that every five years all protected species be removed from the list of threatened and endangered species, eliminating all legal protections. No matter how close to extinction they might be, every listed species would then have to wait until Congress passed a joint resolution renewing their protections under the Act for another five years. Five years later, this process would start over again, eliminating all protections until Congress passed another joint resolution.

.

“The strength of the Endangered Species Act — in fact all of our nation’s environmental laws — comes from the requirement that science, not politics, guide the protection of our wildlife, air and water,” said Hartl. “This bill would allow extreme ideologues in Congress to veto environmental protections for any protected species they wanted, just so they could appease their special-interest benefactors.”

.

The bill would eliminate all protections for the critical habitat of endangered species and allow state governments to effectively veto any conservation measures designed to protect an imperiled species within their respective state. Meanwhile federal wildlife agencies would need to complete onerous accounting reports to estimate the costs of protecting endangered species rather than completing tangible, on-the-ground conservation activities to protect species and the places they live.

.

“This bill would devastate species protections and open the door to log, mine and pave some of the last places on Earth where these animals survive,” Hartl said. “It’s a boon for profiteers like the Koch Brothers but will rob every American who values wildlife and wild places.”

.

The Center for Biological Diversity is a national, nonprofit conservation organization with more than 625,000 members and online activists dedicated to the protection of endangered species and wild places

“I’m sure most people don’t know this goes on in Wisconsin,” McConnell says. “I think most people would be horrified.”

As hunters prepare for Wisconsin’s wolf hunt, some scientists are warning that a proposal to sharply cull the population could destabilize it — just two years after wolves were removed from the federal endangered list.

Defend the Hunt by Donating Your Deer Hide October 3rd, 2013 LANSING—A new program called “Defend the Hunt” is asking Michigan deer hunters to donate their hides this year to protect hunting rights. The program, coordinated by Michigan United Conservation Clubs and the Michigan Trappers and Predator Callers Association, will use the proceeds from the sale of the hides at fur sales to donate to the campaign protecting hunting rights from the anti-hunters trying to repeal Public Act 21 of 2013.

The law, passed on a bipartisan basis in May, allows the Natural Resources Commission to name game species and issue fisheries orders under its mandate to use sound science, which was approved by Michigan voters in 1996’s Proposal G. The law also provides free hunting and fishing licenses to active-duty members of the military from Michigan.

“The Michigan Trappers and Predator Callers Association is proud to team up with MUCC in the Defend the Hunt program to defend hunting, trapping and fishing rights in Michigan,” said Dennis Cronk of the MTPCA. “As trappers, we understand the danger of the recent misleading advertising and emotionally charged claims about sound scientific wildlife management that anti-hunters have recently made in Michigan.”

Fear of the Wolf by Justus RANDT Hanover. To protect against Wolves, livestock farmers can borrow recently game preserve. Suspicious, especially sheep farmers is the Wolf. Not quite wrongly, as the lower Saxon State Office for water management, coastal and nature conservation (NLWKN) admits. in 2006 there were first indications on the strictly protected Wolf, 2012 Wolf pups were born for the first time in 150 years back in the wild. "Currently confirmed are two packs in the Lüneburg Heath and one in the Wendland," says Britta Habbe, Wolf officers hunting land Niedersachsen (LJN), which is responsible for the Wolfsmonitoring of the Ministry for the environment of the country.

 "Like verbundenFacebook not with Facebook"-Dummynicht connected to Twitter "Tweet this" - Dummynicht associated with Google + "Google + 1" - it says DummyEinstellungen in a joint release of the LJN and of NLWKN since 2008, wolves in Lower Saxony had pulled 60 sheep. "In several cases, however, the Wolf as a polluter is ruled out." Other animal species, some goats, were not affected. It showed an overview of NLWKN presented the honorary and at the Ministry of the environment of the country working group of Wolf. The country has to decide whether this so-called equity services of the country are professional and hobby shepherds, whose torn, Tiere.

 The uncertainty is great, "in which regions there are livestock cracks and whether the Wolf of the cause was".

 

Therefore, the hunting community recently published a list of the livestock cracks on the Internet (www.wildtiermanagement.com).

 

As "Emergency encountered a wolf in the sheep attitudes" Hösseringen (Uelzen district) would be held ready in the museum village electric fences and transformers on loan, informs the NLWKN.

.......................................................

My 6 month old German Shepherd puppy got hurt yesterday. It was pitch black, and I still don’t know what he did, but I and three other of our dogs went running towards the screaming. I lifted him up, they licked his face, he hobbled back to the house with a lame shoulder, to sympathy and comfort from the rest of the family, dog (and cat) and human.  I tell him, once again, “It could be worse – you could be a wolf puppy” He is the age of this year’s puppies. It was a puppy, 40#, his weight at the time, who was killed by a bow in the area adjacent to Yellowstone in September. We don’t kill elk or deer fawns, bear cubs, but no one cares if a wolf puppy is taken out.  The wolf haters celebrate, and the wolf defenders mourn the 166 wolves killed in Wisconsin by Tuesday. I, myself, wonder about the families left behind. Having worked with captive wolves, I know that more than anything, wolves are members of a family. They interact differently with other individuals – perhaps avoiding one, but hanging out with a different one. Enough interactions to keep researchers enthralled for decades. Puppies, though big at 6 months, are quite incompetent at the skills of living!  So I wonder what happens to the family members left behind. I can’t imagine the puppies can survive without elders to show them the way. I imagine the elders struggle to function with a depleted group.  So I am saddened at this wolf hunt. Sad that so many Americans find such joy in slaying these family members, sometimes with intentional cruelty. Sad that many people feel that only humans have emotions, despite the fact that even ours are generated in parts of the brain that wolves and other animals also have. Sad that in this scenario, we are the Nazis and surely, to wolves, this is a holocaust.-- Chris Albert

WHEN TREES LEAVE WOLVES Southern Doom Rock aus Aachen

Well, once upon a time, there was a question: what would happen, if country music and some deep ‘n’ heavy tunes had a child? That’s what the guys from WTLW tried to find out. Since they all were raised in different angles of the music world, they sat together and decided to create a sound that would be worth this great trailer-park-trash-heritage. This is how When Trees Leave Wolves was created. With all the music that was made in the past, something new was born. So what do we need? First of all: Ambition. Heart. Sweat. Blood. And then: Fat guitars, deep bass, massive drums and a voice as raspy as a hangover. Aaand: A name! Aaw, yeah, a name… So. Have you ever been sad and tried to start over from zero? Has it worked? Probably not! So here’s a picture. Imagine the woods, with all the trees, these big, massive, grounded, steady things, and the animals, like especially our wolves. Yep, they live there. If the trees die, what happens? Exactly! All the animals get the heck outta there. Now, imagine the trees grab their bags and go. Here’s the question: in this picture, are you the tree or the wolf? Ready to go on stage, songs are written and composed, demos are produced and recorded in no time. From here on, there’s more to come and there will be noise. So grab ya hats ‘n’ boots, crank the guitars and rock, suckers!

Speaking of concerns about mining dust, here is a story about New Auburn's school air filters. When frac sand mines exceed federal air quality standards, the cost is passed onto citizens.

ACTION ALERT Wolves of Douglas County Wisconsin  ACTION ALERT TO HELP STOP THE WOLF HOUNDING  Copy and paste the letter below into an email and send it to 10 email contacts and ask them to send it to ten email contacts.

 Wisconsinites preferred but not required. #stopthewolfhounding #wiscsonsinwolfhunt #actionalert

 November 1, 2013

 Dear Wisconsinites  In spite of overwhelming opposition wolf hounding will open in Wisconsin on December 3rd, 2013, as part of this years wolf hunt. A survey conducted by Humane Society of the United states results released in June 2013 as follows, “In addition, 85 percent of voters statewide support a ban on using packs of dogs to chase down and hunt wolves.”

I’ve seen first hand the effects of this bloody sport of running hound on bear as a seasoned WDNR winter wolf/carnivore volunteer tracker. I’ve seen the torn up bodies of bear hound dogs after an encounter with wolves. The wolves were defending their pups against a pack of hound dogs. This year wolf hounders can use six dogs at a time to chase wolves. What will happen if the hound’s handler is not right there when the wolf turns to defend himself? I think this will turn into a bloody dog versus wolf fight resulting in dead dogs and wolves. It is illegal for hunting dogs to kill any wild animal in Wisconsin. I am betting that this is a sport that Wisconsinites will not condone.

 I urge Wisconsinites’ to support Senator Fred Risser’s senate bill #93 that calls for the removal of dogs from the wolf hunt. This bill is sitting on the doorstep of Senator Neil Kedzie, sen.kedzie@legis.wisconsin.gov; 608-266-2635. This bill is stalled in committee in spite volumes of emails and calls to his office. I ask Wisconsinites to call and email their opposition to wolf hounding and end this blood sport before it begins in December.

 Actually Ken, we used harmless traps in New Mexico for the wolf reintroduction, they pretty much go limp and give up when finally captured like that. But with the pain factor of these traps, you may be right.

Wolves of Douglas County Wisconsin has faith that we can win this fight! Oregon saved their wild wolves and we can save ours from these trophy hunts and wolf hounding sport

 We didn't just bring back wolves to be a bargaining chip for the wealthy lobbyists. Or for trophy hunters or for wolf hounders! This new wolf policy is wrong plain and simple. Wolves are necessary for the health of our wild lands. This new wolf management where they insist on keeping their population to 350 is based on a misinterpreted wolf management plan written in 1999 and then revised in 2005 was set as a goal to take wolves off "life support"(Melanie's term) because the wolves were doing well in recovery. That 350 number was never a minimum number of wolves that Wisconsin could support.

 I was there during all the writing of these plans. This 350 number was never a cut off point and this hunt is based on the minority few that want to trophy hunt! So these few invent or grasp at anything thing they can to twist the numbers.

 We are not giving up on Wisconsin's wild wolves. We want them here and will not support this unjustified trophy hunt.

 And wolf hounders you better follow the rules cause we will be watching! There is no way Wisconsinites will welcome this in wolf range! Wolf hounding amounts to running dogs on Wisconsin's wildlife causing bloody dog and wolf fights! We bet Wisconsinites won't buy your blood sport. It is against the law for dogs to kill any wild animals so you better keep your dogs leashed.

 If anyone sees any illegal acts take a picture and report them!

 We are working for a non lethal plan that works for wild wolves like was accomplished in Oregon. Wisconsin can turn this around and begin to cherish our wildlife!

A Green Look at the Wisconsin Spring September 2011, Madison, Wisconsin http://www.greens.org/s-r/57/57-08.html

September 2011, Madison, Wisconsin. The legislative recall elections generated by the Wisconsin Spring demonstrations are over. [1] Democrats failed to retake the state Senate, gaining only two seats over the fall 2010 total. Republicans now hold the Senate by a 17–16 margin, and retain control of the Assembly and governor’s mansion. In June, both the anti-collective bargaining bill and the Republican budget, little altered, became law. In other words, no revolution. It is a still point in Wisconsin history: time to take stock.

Media coverage of the “Wisconsin Revolution” has been shot through with an array of superlatives, many of them deserved. Wisconsin’s great “Outpouring” that began in February 2011 was a watershed event. The largest crowds at a political demonstration in state history (up to 150,000 in a city of about 200,000). Weeks of continuous occupation of the Capitol building, with 24/7 marchers outside: also unprecedented.

Even more than size or duration, it was the character of this Outpouring—which took place two blocks from my apartment—that most astonishes. I have never seen anything like it in the US in four decades of demonstrating. After weeks of attending demonstrations and talking to people, I realized that much of the unspoken ideological underpinning of the Wisconsin “revolution” was antithetical to most of what a green agenda would be. But disturbing as that was, I see promise as well.

Abuses of the ESA have led to thousands of job losses, hundreds of  terminated projects, and countless invasions of private property rights. It’s  time for United States Congress to reform the act.

1) State’s rights should not be infringed through broad applications of the  Commerce Clause.

2) Plants and animals not in danger of extinction should not be granted  rights that impede business, industry and livelihoods.

3) Economic consequences should once again be considered in the rule making  process.

4) Agents of the Federal government should be held personally responsible  when they exceed their authority and create financial hardships for hardworking  Americans.

Wolf protection plan raises hackles in Southwest The U.S. wants to ban most killing of wild Mexican wolves in New Mexico and Arizona, and expand the area where the animals can roam. But many see federal overreach.

Mexican wolf

Parents are using “kid cages” to protect their children from wolf attacks
1 year ago

Actual threat, or anti-federalist ploy?

http://www.salon.com/2013/10/29/parents_are_using_kid_cages_to_protect_their_children_from_wolf_attacks/

 

 

It’s a powerful image: children in New Mexico and Arizona huddled in wooden and mesh cages as they wait for the morning school bus to arrive, hoping their makeshift shelter will be enough to protect them from the grey wolves that were reintroduced into the region in 1995 — and that may soon become illegal to hunt or kill.

 

“The absurdity of this scenario is mind-numbing,” wrote Dave Spady, the California director of Americans for Prosperity, for Townhall.com. ”What kind of society accepts the idea of children in cages while wolves are free to roam where they choose?”

 

But experts say the so-called kid cages aren’t going to protect anyone from wolf attacks — not because they’re not strong enough, but because wolves rarely, if ever, attack people. As defenders of the animals point out, there has never been a documented wolf attack in either state.

So why the cages? They’re likely “a publicity stunt designed to stoke opposition to Mexican wolf recovery in general and to the federal government in particular,” Daniel MacNulty, who’s been studying wolves in Yellowstone National Park for the past 18 years, told National Geographic. In other words, they’re a calculated overreaction to something that, according to MacNulty and other experts, poses a political threat — not a physical one. It was when the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced that it was seeking to extend protection for the region’s 75 Mexican wolves — a subspecies of grey wolf — under the Endangered Species Act that conservative groups began circulating photos and videos of the cages.

 

The L.A. Times breaks down how the antipathy at wolves has contributed to the need for endangered species protection in the first place:

 

Anti-wolf campaigns here — paid for by conservative political organizations antagonistic toward the federal government — often portray the animal as a savage devil preying on children.

The antipathy has encouraged scores of illegal killings of Mexican wolves, whose population dwindled to seven before federal efforts to reintroduce them began in 1998. A young male wolf was fatally shot with an arrow a few weeks ago in the same rural Catron County that uses the kid cages.

“Is this politically driven? Absolutely,” said one rancher at an Albuquerque screening of the documentary “Wolves in Government Clothing.” The event, the L.A. Times notes, was sponsored by Americans for Prosperity and featured handouts of Ayn Rand literature.

Spady, who produced the documentary, was more than willing to admit that, yes, the wolf was mostly a symbol of how “the federal government is running roughshod over private property rights.”

So since we’re all on the same page, couldn’t someone go and tell those poor kids that they don’t have to stay in the cages any longer?

Kid cages: Wolf protection or overreaction

RESERVE, NM -- Kid cages, designed to protect school children from dangerous wildlife, are now taking center stage in the debate on whether or not a possible endangered species of wolf should be designated as such -- or not be protected -- allowing for their hunting to protect livestock in a small rural New Mexico community, Fox News reports. 

According to the channel's report, about six small, wooden and mesh cages were installed at bus stops about 10 years ago in Reserve, N.M., where people have found the Mexican gray wolf.

The Fish and Wildlife Service, according to the LA Times,  has proposed extending the Endangered Species Act to protect the wolves.  Ranchers are opposed to that designation, saying the animals prey on livestock and should be hunted.  

Animal activists said,however, that there are few reports of wolves actually attacking a person and that the shelters, and by extension the wolves, are just a proxy for anti-government feelings of some who live in the Southwest.

Fox News says the residents claim the shelters could save a child from being attacked in the early morning hours as they wait for their bus.   One such case was recently reported, when a wolf frightened a mother and her son while they waited for his bus.
