Enviros sue USFWS over failure to place wolverines on endangered species list

A lawsuit was filed Monday to force the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to protect wolverines with a listing under the Endangered Species Act, a move the agency rejected in October based on its conclusion that the fierce carnivores were doing fine, population-wise.


“This is yet another chapter in this administration’s war on science,” said Matthew Bishop, an attorney with the Western Environmental Law Center. “Public records reveal the Service decided not to protect wolverine from day one and then worked backwards to figure out how to make the decision stick. It’s really unfortunate.”
