Advocacy Group Plans ESA Lawsuit Against the U.S. Forest Service for Failure to Protect Wolves from Hunters Along the Colorado-Wyoming Border

The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) sent a sixty-day notice of intent to sue the U.S. Forest Service under the Endangered Species Act’s citizen suit provision for the agency’s alleged failure to protect wolves from hunters in Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest. CBD intends to seek a ban on wolf hunting and trapping in the entire forest, which straddles the Colorado-Wyoming border.
