Study: More Elk Killed by Cougars than by Wolves in Idaho

IDFG making excuses for why they blamed wolves not cats it appears…. States that study most likely applies to surrounding states as well.

SPOKANE — More elk are being killed by cougars than by wolves in Idaho, a study by the state Department of Fish and Game has found.

The study found that wolves accounted for 32% of adult female elk deaths and 28% of elk calf deaths, while cougars accounted for 35% of adult female elk deaths and 45% of elk calf deaths.

The study also found that food availability and the severity of winter was the most important factor for elk calf survival.

“Things are usually more complicated than one thing, but it’s sometimes really hard to show that,” said Jon Horne, lead author of the paper and a senior wildlife research biologist at the Idaho Department of Fish and Game

He told The Spokesman-Review that the findings are also likely applicable for Washington, Montana and Canada.

The study published earlier this year in the Journal of Wildlife Management examined 15 years of data.

“The one variable that mattered the most for calf survival was how big it was,” Horne said.

While researchers were able to consider the size of wolf packs on elk mortality, they couldn’t do that for mountain lions, which can be difficult to count.

“We didn’t have a variable like the wolf variable where we knew what the lion population size was in an area,” Horne said.

In a different study published in 2018 that examined wolves, Horne found that the average pack size didn’t change much in Idaho between 2005 and 2015 despite the beginning of wolf hunting seasons.

“On one side of the ledger you have a portion of the public that thinks that harvest is just going to send the wolves to extinction and that has not been the case,” Horne said. “And then . there is a side that thinks wolves are taking over and they will grow without limits.”

WDFW Director Susewind reauthorizes lethal action in Togo wolf pack 

WDFW Director reauthorizes lethal action in Togo wolf pack

People,Wolves are crying out for Our Research, Join Us while we still have Wolves left https://continuetogive.com/protectthewolves
Publish date

WDFW Director Kelly Susewind today (August 9, 2019) reauthorized Department staff to lethally remove the two remaining wolves from the Togo pack in response to repeated depredations of cattle on grazing lands in the Kettle River range of Ferry County.

The Department has documented three wolf depredations in the last 30 days and four in the last 10 months.  During one of those depredations, a livestock producer shot a wolf during a caught-in-the-act scenario where the producer responded to a wolf depredating his livestock.

The proactive non-lethal deterrents used by the two producers (described below) in the area have not curtailed repeated depredations. Director Susewind’s decision is consistent with the guidance of the state’s Wolf Conservation and Management Plan and the lethal removal provisions of the Department’s wolf-livestock interaction protocol.

WDFW’s approach to incremental lethal removal consists of a period of active operations followed by an evaluation period to determine if those actions changed the pack’s behavior.

Last August 20 (2018) Director Susewind authorized lethal removal in the Togo pack in response to repeated wolf depredations, and Department staff removed one wolf on September 2, 2018.  After documenting subsequent livestock depredations by the pack, the Director reauthorized the lethal removal of the remaining three wolves in the Togo pack on November 7, 2018; however no wolves were removed during that effort.

The goal of lethal removal, as described in the Wolf Conservation and Management Plan, is to manage wolf-livestock conflicts to minimize livestock losses without undermining the recovery of a sustainable wolf population. The purpose of the lethal action (and non-lethal tools) in the Togo pack is to change pack behavior to reduce the potential for continued depredations on livestock while continuing to promote wolf recovery. In this situation, the non-lethal tools did not change pack behavior.

Consistent with the guidance of the plan and protocol, the rationale for reauthorizing lethal removal of Togo wolves is as follows:

  • WDFW has documented ongoing depredation on livestock by the pack since Nov. 3, 2017 (11 total, 4 within the last 10 months and three in the last 30 days). The depredations were shared with the public in a timely manner, as described in the protocol.

    The four depredations in the last 10 months were classified as confirmed depredations, two of which were deaths to the livestock.

  • At least two proactive deterrence measures and responsive deterrence measures (if applicable) were implemented and did not meet the goal of influencing/changing pack behavior to reduce the potential for recurrent wolf depredations on livestock. During the 2019 grazing season, the following non-lethal deterrents were implemented:
    • Livestock producer 1 removes or secures livestock carcasses to avoid attracting wolves to the rest of the herd, calves away from areas occupied by wolves, avoids known wolf high activity areas, and monitors the herd with a range rider. A WDFW-contracted range rider has been working with this producer since May.
    • Livestock producer 2 removes or secures livestock carcasses to avoid attracting wolves to the rest of the herd (when discovered), removes sick and injured livestock (when discovered) from the grazing area until they are healed, calves away from areas occupied by wolves, avoids known wolf high activity areas, delays turnout of livestock onto grazing allotments until June 10 when calving is finished (and deer fawns, elk calves, and moose calves become available as prey), and monitors the herd with a range rider.

The department documented these deterrents in the agency’s “wolf-livestock mitigation measures” checklist, with date entries for deterrent tools and coordination with the producer and range rider.

  • WDFW expects depredations to continue based on the history of this pack. The most recent depredation by the Togo pack is the third event in 30 days, forth event in 10 months. This series of repeated depredations shows a pattern in pack behavior as defined in the wolf-livestock interaction protocol. WDFW staff believe depredations are likely to continue in the near future even with the non-lethal tools being utilized.
  • The lethal removal of wolves in the Togo pack is not expected to harm the wolf population’s ability to reach the statewide recovery objective.

    WDFW has documented ten known wolf mortalities in the state since Jan 1, 2019. In previous years with fewer wolves, WDFW has documented between 12 to 14 mortalities annually and the population has continued to expand its range and grow each year, both in numbers of individuals and numbers of breeding packs.

    Comparing the actual level of wolf mortality to that modeled in the Wolf Conservation and Management Plan (appendices G and H), actual average wolf mortality per year is about 8.5 animals or approximately 10 percent of the estimated population from 2011-2018. This level is below the 28 percent baseline annual mortality assumed in the wolf plan model (before any simulated wolf removals); which incorporates a 30 percent lethal removal mortality in addition to the baseline mortality. The modeling assumed the regional wolf population met the regional component of the statewide recovery objective. The wolf population in the eastern recovery region is three times the regional component of the statewide objective.

    T he department is providing one business day (eight court hours) advance public notice before initiating lethal removal activity. WDFW will use humane lethal removal methods consistent with state and federal laws. The objective is to use the best methods available while considering human safety, humaneness to wolves, swift completion of the removal, weather, efficacy, and cost.

WDFW will keep the public informed about this activity through weekly updates. The next update will be provided on Aug. 16.

Cyanide bombs: Trump administration reauthorizes use of “cyanide bombs” to kill wild animals 

Canyon and Casey

 

The Picture is of Canyon Mansfield, a Little Boy that was almost killed by the Cyanide Bomb that President Trump just re-authorized! It is Time for the Public to get this Environmental Train wreck out of the Whitehouse!

The Environmental Protection Agency has recently reauthorized the use of controversial chemical traps to kill coyotes, dogs, foxes and other wild animals across the U.S. These “cyanide bombs” are meant to protect livestock although some environmental groups are calling for a nationwide ban and saying they are inhumane.

According to a recent interim decision, EPA officials approved the use of M-44 devices, which trap wildlife with bait before releasing sodium cyanide into their mouths, killing them.

Wildlife Services, the division of the U.S. Department of Agriculture responsible for wildlife management, is authorized to use the devices, as are state agencies in South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, New Mexico and Texas. Wildlife Services kills large numbers of wild animals every year on behalf of farmers and ranchers.

At the end of 2018, the EPA proposed the renewed use of sodium cyanide, allowing time for public comment until March. More than 99.9 percent of comments urged the EPA to ban M-44s!

“The overwhelming majority of comments from the general public, including the more than 20,0000 letters from the write-in campaign, did not support the continued registration of sodium cyanide predacide uses (M-44 devices),” the EPA wrote in its proposal. Opponents sited the dangers to residential areas and ecological concerns.

Instead of discontinuing the use of the devices, the EPA has updated its rules to include some restrictions with the hope of reducing accidents. For example, the devices cannot be placed within 100 feet of a public road or pathway, increased from 50 feet, and elevated warning signs must be placed within 15 feet of each device, decreased from 25 feet.

Perhaps most pertinent, people living within a half-mile of an M-44 placement must be notified. In 2018, a family in Idaho sued the government for more than $150,000 after a cyanide trap near their home injured their son and killed their dog the previous year, bringing national attention to the issue.

According to the family, no one with the government told them the poisonous device was near their backyard. The government rejected the claims and asked for the lawsuit to be dismissed, claiming the family’s negligence led to the incident.

“Cyanide traps can’t be used safely by anyone, anywhere,” While the EPA added some restrictions, these deadly devices have caused too much harm to remain in use. We need a permanent nationwide ban to protect people, pets and imperiled wildlife from this poison.” Like what has happened to the Mansfields in Idaho.

Point Reyes Seashore Ranchers Want elk shot, To preserve historic cattle ranches? Seriously?

Cattle Ranches are niether Native nor Historic, they were built by Immigrants, they somehow seem to forget that minor Detail. They are on Stolen Native Lands! A Huge waste of $1,000,000 of Taxpayers Money once again on Welfare Ranchers.

The proposal, which cost nearly $1 million to develop, revives a controversy over private ranching in the national seashore.

Tule elk in the Point Reyes National Seashore could be shot to control their swelling numbers, and cattle ranchers would be assured a lengthy future and latitude to expand their farming operations under a proposed management plan aimed at bridging a sharp divide over the presence of commercial agriculture in the 71,000-acre national park.

The plan, which cost nearly $1 million to develop and won’t be implemented until next year, was released Thursday by the National Park Service, which manages the sprawling seashore on the Marin County coast.

Reviving a controversy that dates back to the agency’s decision in 2012 to evict an oyster farm from a Pacific Ocean inlet in the seashore, the plan — described as “shockingly anti-wildlife” by one conservationist — could also send environmentalists and the federal government back into court over the conflict between farming for profit and land preservation.

The proposal has been identified by the National Seashore staff as the “preferred alternative” of six variations developed over the past two years. The public now has 45 days to review and comment on the document.

The preferred plan would give 20-year leases to the two dozen beef and dairy cattle ranching families who lease about 26,100 acres of federally-owned land in the seashore and the adjacent Golden Gate National Recreation Area, allowing them to continue grazing about 2,400 beef cattle and 3,100 dairy animals.

They would also be allowed to expand and diversify their operations, hosting tourists in farm buildings, raising crops and introducing other livestock, including sheep, goats, pigs and chickens.

The ranchers, who now hold five-year leases, have maintained they need 20 years of assured operation to justify making improvements to buildings that in some cases look worn by time and weather on the often fogbound peninsula.

“What we’re all hoping for is stability,” said Jackie Grossi, who with her husband, Rich, runs a historic Point Reyes ranch, where the family has raised beef cattle for three generations.

Its primary spokesman, Jeff Miller, also assailed provisions in the preferred plan that would allow expansion of agricultural activities on the federal lands.

“This would inevitably lead to conflicts with the park’s native wildlife, and could result in ranchers calling for killing of coyotes, bobcats, foxes and numerous birds,” he warned in a written statement.

The plan already calls explicitly for the Park Service to “actively manage” the Drakes Beach elk herd to limit it to 120 adults “using lethal removal methods.”

Park Superintendent Cicely Muldoon said that means shooting the animals to curb the population growth. At the end of last year, the Drakes Beach herd numbered 124 elk, she said.

Muldoon noted provisions in the plan that specifically bar “management of any predators associated with new livestock species.”

“The history of preserving Marin’s incredible open spaces is intertwined with ranchlands,” Muldoon said. “The two things come together here in Point Reyes unlike any other national park. It can work, and indeed has worked together for more than 50 years. Of course it’s complicated, and of course we can do better. In the end, the park will be better protected if we can find common ground — whatever perspectives people come from on this issue, everyone cares about this place.

Tule elk, found only in California, once numbered close to 500,000 animals and were hunted nearly to extinction during the Gold Rush. Reintroduced to the seashore in 1978, they elk roam in several herds, the largest of which numbers about 430 and lives behind a fence on Tomales Point. That area is outside the ranch territory focused on in the management plan, Muldoon said.

The Limantour herd, which numbered 174 animals, would be “monitored closely and managed in consideration of ranching operations,” the plan states.

But the Drakes Beach elk already has exceeded what Miller argued was “an arbitrary population threshold,” one that would trigger lethal culling under the new plan, as well as harassment and hazing to keep them off ranch areas.

“We don’t want to see any persecution of the tule elk,” Miller said.

The Center for Biological Diversity was one of three groups that sued the Park Service in 2016, alleging that decades of cattle grazing at the seashore had trampled the landscape and polluted waterways.

The legal action halted the Park Service’s process of granting 20-year leases to the ranchers, initiated by former Interior Secretary Ken Salazar as part of his order evicting a commercial oyster farm from Drakes Estero in 2012, a move that gained national attention and sharply divided the West Marin community.

A settlement of the suit approved in 2017 directed the Park Service to draft a management plan that was required to include alternatives that would maintain the status quo for ranching and both eliminate or reduce ranching.

The preferred alternative, Muldoon said, is intended to strike a balance between cattle and endangered species in the seashore.

“We think both these things can thrive together,” she said, noting that the historic ranches are a “cultural resource” that merits preservation.

Ranching is “part of our story, part of our history. It’s unique to Point Reyes,” Muldoon said.

Miller said the lawsuit was never intended to terminate cattle ranching but rather to prompt a thorough assessment of its impact.

Grazing must be consistent with the park’s purpose, “as Congress established it,” to provide public access and enjoyment of the land, he said.

Asked if the plan could prompt renewed legal action, Miller said it was “too early to talk about that.”

Muldoon said litigation is “always a possibility. There’s a lot of passion around this subject.”

Muldoon also said the preferred alternative may be tailored during the lengthy approval process.

The plan, which includes an environmental study of each alternative, is under public review through Sept. 23. The final version will be released early next year after all written comments have been addressed and will become official after a 30-day waiting period.

U.S. Forest Service Attempting to Silence American Public! Comment TODAY

protect the wolves

Do Not allow the Current Administration to strip any more of your rights. Comment NOW! https://www.regulations.gov/document?D=FS-2019-0010-0001

Use the Access Fund’s letter writing tool to tell the US Forest Service that you do not agree with their proposed changes which would limit your voice and diminish the integrity of America’s public lands.

he US Forest Service (USFS) just released a proposal that would eliminate or drastically reduce public participation in approximately 93% of land management projects. This move is intended to fast-track logging, mining, drilling, and other development of our public lands—all of which deserve a robust public process and environmental analysis.

There are over 10,000 climbing areas located on USFS lands, and Access Fund relies on public involvement guaranteed by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to ensure our climbing areas are protected and managed appropriately. NEPA, a law passed in 1970, mandates that you and other members of the public have a fair opportunity to comment before the federal government decides the fate of our public lands—ensuring they make informed decisions regarding environmental impacts and impacts to values like recreation. This bedrock environmental law guarantees that you have a voice in how our public lands are managed and protected.

The USFS is proposing sweeping changes to the way it implements NEPA, by attempting to add more “categorical exclusions”, which would allow development projects to sail through without proper public comment or evaluation of environmental impacts. This move would essentially cut you—the American public—out of the decision-making process, allowing land managers to make unilateral decisions about our public lands without adequate public notice and community engagement.

This proposed change in policy undermines government transparency and accountability. Over the last 30 years, we have learned time and time again that more robust public involvement results in better land management decisions. The American public deserves the right to have a say in how our public lands are managed, and our voices are critical to ensuring the long-term conservation and sustainability of these irreplaceable landscapes.

https://protectthewolves.com/jayinsleetoolittletolate

The Complaints being from the very same eastern Washington rancher Len and Bill McIrvin of the Diamond M Ranch have triggered the deaths of more than 80 percent of all wolves eliminated by the state, including 18 alone in the Colville National Forest.

To appease the McIrvins  WDFW  has killed wolves from the Wedge Pack in 2012, the Profanity Peak Pack in 2016, the Sherman Pack in 2017,  the Smackout Pack in 2018, and the Old Profanity Territory (OPT) Pack again in 2019. The Diamond M Ranch has refused government range riders in early July, they also payments to compensate them for lost cattle, has recently discarded the use of non-lethal methods, and emphatically demanded more wolf killing. It is as if McIrvin is setting up wolves for WDFW to kill once again.

Last week, Kelly Susewind, the director of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, whom does not have any experience with wildlife nor clearly the proper management skills to manage any of our children’s resources, issued kill orders for the entire Old Profanity Territory pack, included is its eight pack members. This is happening right now, WDFW is setting out traps to capture wolves and radio collar them. If WDFW is able to catch them, WDFW will then use them to lead their helicopter Gunners with radio telemetry signals to find every single member of the pack, and shoot them with a shotgun from a helicopter! This method causes undue suffering and injured wildlife as proven by WDFW in 2016 in their pursuit of the Profanity Peak Pack, when they were unable to locate one of the Profanity Peak Pack members shot.

The McIrvins seem to be hell bent on grazing cattle on public lands merely to provoke the slaughter of wolves. Especially when considering other ranchers throughout Washington state are very effectively using non-lethal methods of managing the occasional conflicts between wolves and ranchers.

So herein lies the question, how many wolves will Jay Inslee allow Susewind to kill to satisfy the unreasonable demands of a single ranching family, who place cattle on habitat that is unsuitable for them but ideal for wolves? He claims to support not Delisting Wolves, Yet allows his WDFG Managers to kill at will.

When Protect The Wolves Questioned USFS’s Range Manager Travis Fletcher In 2016, regarding the allotments, he claimed that he had the authority to close those allotments that were in the best interest for the Wildlife in General and move them. Then in 2017, 2018 USFS’s Range Manager Travis Fletcher refused to discuss Protect The Wolves Petition to close the grazing allotments that are in proximity to the Wolf Dens at Washingtons Wolf Advisory Group Meetings.

If those very issues he claims to care about do not interest him in helping to right the wrongs against a Native American Organization, then what is it that makes him a quality Presidential Candidate?

It seems like he is trying to merely ride the back of your Children’s Resources into the Whitehouse. Look we already have one poser in the Whitehouse, we certainly do not need another.

Idaho Fish and Game Commission to Meet, Public Invited

protect the wolves, protect idaho wolves

Join Protect The Wolves™ on this Conference Call with IDFG to hear their snare reasoning.

Seriously… What kind of fruitloops are they selling in Idaho?

This is the most ridiculous Statement from an Official charged with Protecting our Natural Resources We have ever heard. Snares that will only target 1 species…

Background Of the Moronic IDFGS thought pattern…. How is it they can possibly lead themselves to believe that snares will only target 1 species in a Humane Way.

Commission direction, the Department initiated negotiated rulemaking to consider the combination of gear requirements (diverters, break-away devices, and loop stops) for wolf trapping to balance effective capture of the target species while minimizing nontarget animal capture. Staff briefed the Commission in July on the status of this rulemaking effort and on the fact that the Department received one request to conduct negotiated rulemaking. The results of the online public comment period are presented again below. Additionally, results from the negotiated rulemaking meeting held on

The public is invited to meet with the Idaho Fish and Game Commission next week.

Protect The Wolves ® is growing their Native American Voice Join Our Voice Today to be a force Tomorrow.

2011 -2017 were horrible years for the wolves. In Idaho and Montana alone hundreds of gray wolves were butchered and maimed in harsh traps throughout open season. Hunters and trappers have actually eliminated over 4000 gray wolves in the lower 48 states given that they were gotten rid of from the threatened types list in 2011. For over 40 years, the Gray Wolf was a safeguarded species under the Endangered Types Act; however, this protection was eliminated by legislative rider in 2011. Wolves are dealing with impending extinction, at the hands of government Authorities, that continuously err on the side of Money rather of a Healthy Environment.  Assist us stop wolfslaughter and protect the wolves ®.

Education, for one is essential, We will always encourage civil and smart argument and prevent attacks on anyone who has a various opinion or lifestyle. We are not thinking about running an advocacy group that assaults hunters and trappers on an individual level. School groups will be welcomed to tours, lectures, and special occasions at the educational animal center with wolves (which are all smart, misunderstood animals who are frequently eliminated as vermin). We are working towards following goals, as set forth, which can be modified or added to at the discretion of the Board of Directors. Our reach is all The United States and Canada, and our online here in the Northwest. Here are a few of our goals:
