The Destruction of Rural America

Environmentalists and government officials introduced wolves into Montana’s Yellowstone Park in January of 1995 and the “wolves” numbers have grown out of control. As a result elk and deer populations are being destroyed. During a speech on January 13, 2001 at Mammoth Hotel in West Yellowstone exactly six years and one day after helping release the first wolves into Yellowstone Park with Bozeman, Montana members of the terrorist organization, Earth First.

At this speech Interior Secretary, Bruce Babbitt (under the President Clinton Administration) bid farewell to a packed crowd. However, his visit was more than a farewell gesture. It was also a plea for ranchers to stop their campaign against wolves and other animals other than cattle that graze outside of the park.

Babbitt stated to the crowd, “If ranchers know what’s good for them, they won’t try to force wolves and bison from public land where cattle also graze; because that’s a battle they can’t win. The American public won’t stand for it and if the beef industry forces a confrontation, it will lose.” He also said the farmers and ranchers should respect the importance of maintaining a natural ecosystem where wild animals are allowed to roam free.

Currently, according to an article on February 28, 2012 in Redding California’s Record Searchlight the Center for Biological Diversity petitioned the California Fish & Game Commission to protect gray wolves under the California Endangered Species Act. Though gray wolves are protected by the federal act, listing the wolves in California would mean wildlife officials must consider a recovery plan. “There’s really no guide for the management of the gray wolf in California,” said Noah Greenwald, endangered species program director for the Center for Biological Diversity.
