Environmental groups filed emergency injunction to halt wolf hunts
Garrett Eisenhour at 12:00 AM ET

On August 13, 2011, three environmental groups filed an emergency motion in the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit requesting a halt to wolf hunting scheduled to begin in Idaho and Montana. The motion came after a judge for the US District Court for the District of Montana ruled that Congress' removal of the Northern Rocky Mountain Wolf from the Endangered Species Act (ESA) through an appropriations bill amendment was legal. The Ninth Circuit was notified a week prior that the Alliance for the Wild Rockies (AWR), Friends of the Clearwater and WildEarth Guardians would seek a reversal to the judgment. The appellate court ultimately rejected the suit.
