Defenders to sue over wolves

Defenders of Wildlife is the national environmental organization that sided with the Clinton/Babbitt administration in reintroducing Canadian gray wolves to Yellowstone National Park and central Idaho, and is now threatening to sue the federal government if it attempts to remove protections for the critters.

In an e-mail to activists, DOW reported: "Hundreds of precious wolf pups will soon be born in Yellowstone National Park, the southwest and central Idaho. Yet, just as these newborn pups start their lives, Secretary of the Interior Norton has taken the first step to prematurely remove protections for wolves under the Endangered Species Act.

"Norton's actions will take us back to the days when state governments actively promoted wolf extermination," DOW reported. "That is why Defenders will take Gale Norton to court to stop her. But litigation will be long and expensive. We need to raise $150,000 in the next 60 days. Please help."

Wool growers meeting

Sublette County Wool Growers will hold its next meeting on Wednesday, May 21 at 7 p.m. in the Sublette County Extension Office. The group plans to talk about selling wool from the county and participating in the Sublette County Fair in August. All wool growers are encouraged to attend.
