Court denies wolf hunt injunction

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has denied a request to enjoin wolf hunting in Idaho and Montana while the court considers an appeal by wolf advocates challenging congressional action that removed the wolves from the federal threatened and endangered species list earlier this year.

Alliance for the Wild Rockies, Friends of the Clearwater, and WildEarth Guardians appealed the decision to the Ninth Circuit. The fall hunting season will begin in Idaho on August 30, and in Montana on September 3. Although it denied plaintiffs’ current motion to enjoin hunting, the Circuit Court’s order did set an expedited schedule to hear the case. All briefs and replies are due to the court by October 24, 2011.
