Wolverines Might Be Listed as Threatened Species

The federal government is considering giving Threatened Species status to the wolverine.  Sounds like a no-brainer, since there are fewer than 300 wolverines left in the Lower 48.  (A Threatened Species listing wouldn't apply in Alaska.)

In addition to their tiny population, climate change is the biggest threat to the wolverine.  Wolverines depend on snow-covered terrain to survive, and that's the exact type of environment that's diminishing as we speak.  If the federal government does list the Wolverine as Threatened, climate change would be the main reason.

But for every no-brainer, there's a braindead neck-drooler going DUUUHHH!!!  The Western Association of Fish and Wildlife is objecting to a Threatened Species listing based on climate change.  Bill Bates of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources said:

“Climate change models are not a reason to list species under the Endangered Species Act. We can wait and see what happens with climate change in the next 20 to 30 years.” 

WTF???  Right, and then when wolverines and other northern species have gone extinct, we can all say  Darn it, I guess we should have had more foresight thirty years ago.

If the wolverine is listed as a Threatened Species, trappers won't be able to trap them any more, except in Alaska.  There are only two motives for trapping wolverines.  If you get your rocks off watching an animal suffering and dying in a trap, just masturbate instead.

If you want to make money selling wolverine pelts get a job, Parasite.

OK, I've held my tongue (sort of) for years, but maybe it's time to let fly.

This "dominance" over other species that we somehow seem to be so proud of is NOT by right -- it's BY FORCE.

To repeat: We do NOT have the "God-given right" to kill anything we can.

To be proud of our ability to get a gun and kill a beautiful, innocent creature says something so monstrous about us as a species, that I am having trouble believing that even the most inbred mouth-breathers among us cannot see that. But apparently they can't. Or won't.

I've been ashamed of my species all my life; I do what I personally can to atone for our myriad cruelties, but I reluctantly have come to the understanding that I can't fix this. If there is a God, he must be so ashamed of creating mankind in his own image --

Thanks for letting me vent. I'm hopeful that the wolverine will be listed (after the droolers have time to kill a few more, of course) and that we will be able to retain some semblance of our Endangered Species protection. I hope so. Otherwise, (insert the deity of your choice) help us all.

SM: What you said. My sentiments exactly. Maybe there's a parallel reality where these inbred trappers are the ones getting snared in steel traps and slowly bleeding to death.
