USFWS Rejects Wyoming's Wolf Plan
« on: January 24, 2004, 12:29:53 PM »
WASHINGTON, D.C.--The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) says it won't continue the process of removing the western gray wolf from the Endangered Species list until the state of Wyoming changes how it intends to manage the animal.

Wyoming wants to classify the gray wolf as a predator species in parts of the state, which would allow unlimited hunting, something the USFWS says it cannot accept. The USFWS has already accepted Idaho and Montana's wolf management plans, the two other states where the core of the western gray wolf population lives.

Wyoming officials had wanted to have two classifications for wolves--one comprising the area around Yellowstone National Park, where the animal would be considered a trophy game species, and the other where it would be considered a predator and hunted without limits, like coyotes.

Because the wolf population in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming is considered one entity, the USFWS says the gray wolf will not be delisted until changes are made in Wyoming.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.
