Wildlife officials announced the discovery of the Lassen Pack in July. It was the second known family of wolves found in Northern California in 90 years, following the Shasta Pack in 2015.
The Lassen Pack has been considered particularly significant because the father of the Lassen pups is the son of OR-7, the lone wolf who sparked a media frenzy when he crossed from Oregon into Northern California six years ago and spent several years in the north state. He was the first wolf seen in California since they were eradicated by humans by the 1920s. Read More.
Since the 115th Congress was sworn in on January 3, 2017, it has already seen the introduction of at least 34 legislative attacks seeking to strip federal protections from specific species or undercutting the Endangered Species Act. These attacks build on more than 237 pieces of legislation that attempted to weaken the Endangered Species Act since 2011, when the Republican Party took control of the House of Representatives.

Legislative attacks on the Endangered Species Act
WASHINGTON (July 26, 2017) – Today, the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee approved the Hunting Heritage and Environmental Legacy Preservation (HELP) for Wildlife Act, S. 1514.
S. 1514 undermines key principles of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) by allowing politicians to determine which wildlife species receive protections and which do not. It legislatively delists wolves in the Great Lakes region and reaffirms a court decision that returned wolves in Wyoming to state management. Read more.

A key U.S. Senate committee, at the urging of Sen. Thom Tillis, has asked a federal wildlife agency to end a 30-year effort in North Carolina to save endangered red wolves from extinction.
The news was part of the Senate Appropriations Committee’s $32 billion spending bill for the Department of Interior and environmental agencies, released last week. It adds fuel to mounting pressure by North Carolina’s wildlife commission and landowners to halt the program.

The ESA was passed in 1973 because Americans believed that protecting our wildlife was an obligation to future generations, our nation’s environmental health, our fellow creatures, and the heart of the American way of life. It included wildlife ranges and habitats irrespective of political boundaries because these habitats, which are vital to species survival, cross arbitrary lines. Today, many politicians have forgotten the values Congress embraced four decades ago, and they now attempt to undermine one of most successful bipartisan pieces of legislation our country has ever adopted.
