Feds face legal action over jaguar protections

NewsNM:Swickard This is complete nonsense since there are no Jaguars in New Mexico nor is there any reason to have them in our state. It is a money-grab by the environmental groups to find some reason to sue because a law allows the same environmental groups to be paid by the Federal Government when they sue the Federal Government. How stupid! From KRQE-TV.com - LBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – two environmental groups are threatening to sue the federal government claiming they’re failing to protect endangered jaguars.The Animal Welfare Institute and Wild Earth guardians say the USDA’a wildlife services uses traps and snares as part of their work with other animals.
     The groups say that could affect the jaguar and its prey. In March, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service set aside nearly 1200 square miles along the U.S.-Mexico border for jaguar habitat. Jaguars have been on the federal endangered species list for nearly two decades, and were last spotted in New Mexico about 8 years ago.
