RMEF moves to intervene in wolf delisting lawsuit

The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation has filed a motion to intervene in the Wildearth Guardians et al., lawsuit over wolf delisting in Wyoming. This is the case that will be argued in federal court in Wyoming.

The motion noted:
"The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation seeks to intervene in this action to protect its specific interest in defending the USFWSs decision to remove protection of the gray wolf under the Endangered Species Act ("ESA"), the decision to create two zones of gray wolf management in the State of Wyoming, and in preserving populations of elk, deer, moose, wild sheep, and other big game species that are being impacted by wolf predation."

If the court allows RMEF to intervene in the case on the side of federal officials, this wildlife non-profit will join a growing list of intervenors, including the State of Wyoming, Wyoming Wolf Coalition 2013, Safari Club International, and the National Rifle Association.
