Case Summary Citation

Cascadia Wildlands v. Woodruff, No. 3:15-cv-05132-RJB, ___ F. Supp. 3d ___, 2015 WL 9217160, 2015 U.S. Dist. Lexis 169054 (W.D. Wash. Dec. 17, 2015).


Predator management has long been a source of contention among the general public, and few predators have had a more polarizing effect on the public than wolves. Cascadia Wildlands v. Woodruff is yet another example of the tension between conservationists and private interests. In this case, Wildlands opposed the federal government’s FONSI and EA regarding Wildlife Services’s involvement in assisting the WDFW to implement its Wolf Conservation and Management Plan. The district court determined that Wildlife Services had acted arbitrarily and vacated Wildlife Services’s FONSI and EA.
