Can you believe this foolishness ? ?
"TRAVERSE CITY, MICHIGAN - The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service published a rule Wednesday that formally returns gray wolves in the upper Great Lakes region to the endangered species list.
The rule fulfills a deal made with environmental groups in July, when the agency promised to reinstate the wolves' protected status while considering its next move.
Earlier this year, the government dropped about 4,000 wolves in Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin from the list, turning over management of the predators to state wildlife regulators.
Activist groups sued, saying state plans were inadequate and would open the door to future hunting and trapping. The federal agency agreed to put wolves back on the endangered list for now, in part because it erred by removing them without a legally required public comment period."
Public comments ? ? My comment is make up your mind ! !
I wonder if they think the average tree hugger knows more than the people that are trained wildlife experts. This isn't an emotion issue and that is all the tree huggers are making it into. Lets try a little common sense !
The National Institutes of Health has just released the results of a $200 million research study completed under a grant to Johns Hopkins.
The new study has found that women who carry a little extra weight live longer than the men who mention it.
