If the FWS is going to be so useless along with their other wildlife atrocities, then why do they exist? Sounds like a good agency to cut. No more tax dollars to USFWS.

Ugh, just turn the state into one big ugly housing tract....polluted by fracking no less. Way to go stupid bozos...why am I not surprised?

Roseann D, I was going to say the same thing!
Do we ever hear anything good they are doing? I mean really? I have been to CA DFG meetings and about 10 people sit above everyone, looking down at us. They travel a lot all over the state having meetings. Room and board plus income, hm, jerks! Yes I am mad at the CA DFG! And they get paid an outrageous amounts of money too!

What is profoundly disturbing, and I think we can see the writing on the wall here - leaving species to state management. and as the author asked, Could this be the start of a nationwide undoing of the Federal Endangered Species Act? This is really terrible.

Why is the USFWS stepping back? I would assume money is the issue. What a terrible prospect for the panther, especially living in such an uncaring state as Florida.
