Sides Lining Up in Wolf Lawsuit
Laramie, WY – Several conservation groups want to take part in the lawsuit Wyoming filed against the federal government. The state sued the U-S Fish and Wildlife Service for rejecting Wyoming's wolf management plan. A coalition of five conservation groups has filed to intervene and defend the federal position. One of the groups is the Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance. Director Franz Camenzind says they got involved because they believe the agency's decision was the right one based on sound science. He says the groups are disappointed by Wyoming's lawsuit. Camenzind believes it's a waste of taxpayer money and a waste of time in the de-listing process.
