Former U.S. Fish And Wildlife Service Chief Speaks Out

    Former Chief of National Wildlife Refuge Operations, Jim Beers, will address what he feels are the lies, deceit and fraud employed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the state wildlife agencies in Montana and Idaho, and environmental groups to illegally introduce Canadian wolves where they were never native, nor endangered.  His presentation will begin at 1 p.m. on May 16, 2010, at the Gran Tree Inn in Bozeman, MT.   Admission is free.

    More specifically, the topic of his two-hour presentation will be on the Criminal Activities Associated with the Introduction, Protection, and Spread of Wolves in the Lower 48 States.

    "This is the first time I have spoken exclusively on this subject of all the violations of law committed by government bureaucrats, Non-Governmental Organizations, Washington Lobbyists, and political appointees that introduced and spread wolves in the West," states Jim Beers, who worked in various capacities with USFWS for 32 years.

    Mr. Beers is probably best known for his role in exposing the USFWS theft of up to $60-million from the Pittman-Robertson funds collected as excise taxes on sporting firearms, ammunition and fishing tackle.  This money is to be distributed back to state wildlife agencies for habitat improvement and to provide greater outdoor opportunities for sportsmen.  (In 2009, the amount divided amongst all 50 states totaled more than $700-million.)  The millions embezzled by USFWS went into a slush fund used for agency appointee bonuses, and for other unauthorized purposes.  Beers claims that one of those purposes was to provide illegal funding for reintroducing wolves into Yellowstone - funding that Congress refused to provide. 

    Among the many other wolf introduction issues Mr. Beers will address will be the improper and illegal manner in which federal and state wildlife agencies justified wolf introduction, the false claims made by these agencies, an honest assessment of the damage wolves are dealing big game populations, how many wolves there likely are in the Northern Rockies, and how the legal intervention by environmental organizations, such as the Defenders of Wildlife, is very much to blame for the dramatic drop in elk, deer and other big game numbers.

    This presentation is being wholly sponsored by Friends of the Northern Yellowstone Elk Herd.  And its purpose is to unify those who have been harmed by the forced introduction of wolves by federal and state wildlife agencies, and to fund a lawsuit to put an end to the destruction wolves are dealing our wildlife resources.  Every sportsman who hunts or who just enjoys watching wildlife needs to attend this presentation.   There will never be a better opportunity to learn the truth about what is now being billed as the greatest ecological disaster of our lifetimes.

(
Note:  Oddly, Jim Beers' old boss, Jamie Rappaport Clark, who served as the Director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service from 1997 to 2001, is now the Executive Vice President of Defenders of Wildlife - one of the 13 environmental organizations that continue to financially benefit by keeping wolf management tied up in the U.S. District Court of Missoula.)
