Anti-wolf group vague on how it spent Utah taxpayer funds
Campaign » After reading report, lawmakers still are wondering where $300K went.

< Previous Page

Federal court records do not list the group as an intervenor in the case.

While lawmakers were left wanting, Utah Division of Wildlife Resources officials were satisfied with the report because it summarized the larger wolf delisting effort and its current status and "reflected" BGF’s involvement.

"Here’s this huge process and we are on this road to delisting. We’re looking at this in the context of everything going on," said John Shivik, who oversees the division’s mammal programs.

Big Game Forever’s advocacy is a worthy investment because the battle for state control of the predator is not quite over and state leaders remain concerned about the feds’ new proposal to list the Mexican gray wolf as an endangered subspecies.

"We’re not there yet. Things that can go in all sorts of directions between here and delisting," Shivik said. "It will be another year before it’s final. There is public comment and litigation to get through."
