WildEarth Guardians, Western Watershed Project, and Rocky Mountain Wild have sued the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, alleging that the agency has violated the Endangered Species Act by failing to implement adequate conservation measures for the black-footed ferret in the State of Wyoming. Plaintiffs are seeking declaratory and injunctive relief and are requesting the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to order FWS to engage in meaningful rulemaking to protect the black-footed ferret.
