That"s great news Roxy! However I am disappointed that they didn't get an injunction on their slaughter until the day in Court. I have faith that these organizations will be able to make a strong case that it must be stopped and the wolves should receive protection again under the ESA.

Thanks for posting this!

You cannot currently send a star to Roxy because you have done so within the last week.

Maybe someone else can send one to Roxy...

These wolves need to be put back on the indangered list. Pretty soon, there will be 'zero' left, Then, no one can enjoy their beauty!!!

Poor wolves are so misunderstood. Peole kill wolves because they are afraid of them, yet my wolf, who I have had since the minute he was born, was by nature terrified of my two year old granddaughter when he first met her! Wolves are TIMID and sweet and loyal and loving. Wild wolves run and hide from humans. I am very glad wolves are at least getting their day in court in Wyoming. All wolves should still be on the endangered list in ALL states. (BTW my pic is my wolf, D.J.)

I hope there will still be wolves left in Wyoming by the time of the time this case is heard. I still think they should have asked for an injunction.

A second coalition of groups have also sued but still the slaughter continues.

"CHEYENNE, Wyo. November 27th, 2012 — A second coalition of environmental groups has filed a federal lawsuit against the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service claiming it violated the Endangered Species Act by ending federal protections for wolves in Wyoming this fall.

The eight groups filed a lawsuit Tuesday in federal court in Denver. They say Wyoming's management plan classifying wolves as predators that can be shot on sight in most of the state is inadequate.

As of early this week, more than 50 wolves have been killed in Wyoming since the state took over their management Oct. 1. Of that number, Wyoming hunters have killed a few dozen wolves in a designated trophy hunting zone outside Yellowstone National Park, while most of the rest have been killed in other areas of the state where wolves are unprotected.

"The current hunting regulations and wolf management policy in Wyoming that basically leaves wolves vulnerable in 85 percent of the state year-round, I think are almost a dereliction of duty, or a form of negligence on the part of the state in terms of wolf management," said Duane Short, wild species program director at the Biodiversity Conservation Alliance in Laramie.

The groups that filed Tuesday's lawsuit are Alliance for the Wild Rockies, Biodiversity Conservation Alliance, Conservation Congress, Friends of Animals, Friends of the Clearwater, National Wolfwatcher Coalition, Western Watersheds Project and WildEarth Guardians."
