Statute Permits Killing of Endangered Wolves
BY RICHARD PURCELL
A recent N.C. law allowing residents of
Hyde and Washington counties to kill red
wolves under certain circumstances has
caused tensions among the state govern
ment, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
and environmental activists.
The law makes it legal for people to kill
a red wolf on private property if they “rea
sonably believe” that it poses a danger to
human life or property.
"The wolf just a decade ago was pretty
near extinction,” said Bill Snape, legal
counsel for Defenders ofWildlife, a Wash
ington-based environmental organization.
Although the species’ prospects for sur
vival have improved since then, Snape
said, “it is by no means safe,” adding that

“The Endangered Species Act allows
an individual to protect himself or some
body else if that person in good faith be
lieves a species is going to harm them or
anyone else,” he said.
Snape said, however, that he thought
that, fiom a legal point of view, the words
“reasonably believe” used in the N.C. law
provided too large a loophole for those
wishing to kill the wolf.
“Red wolves are not a threat to human
beings,” he said. “There have been ex
traordinarily few cases of livestock being
taken by red wolves.”
Another issue raised by the new law
concerns the potential conflict between the
state and federal governments.

As far as we’re concerned, nothing has
changed,” Wilson said.
He said the federal government, rather
than the state, determined whether a spe
cies should be classified as “endangered"
or put in another category “based on the
status of the Species and their habitat.”
As to whether or not his agency has
spoken to federal officials about the law,
Wilson said, “We basically advised them
that this is a particularly sensitive situa

The law is unconstitutional because it is
in violation of the Endangered Species
Act, which is a federal law, he said.

ings,” Touw said.
He added that board members had been
collecting information about the budget
since December and that the retreat would
provide time for administrative officials to
arrange the information and brainstorm
about the needs of the school system.
Bushnell, who will be attending her
eighth retreat, said she had always found
the retreat to be very interesting.
“I am interested in seeing what we can
do with the budget,” Bushnell said. “It is
time to put our money where our mouths
are, but we are having a hard time doing
that because we are growing so fast.”
Touw said the board would probably
discuss educational opportunities for stu
dents who excelled in school, end-of-course
test results, the school system’s own report
card and other programs concerning the

“We are considering it, but we haven’t
made a decision on it,” he said.
Terry Milner astonished fellow candi
dates Tuesday with a rare write-in win in
the race for Student Congress representa
tive of Dist. 1. Milner unexpectedly won
the election with the most votes.
Milner said his campaign had not been
planned in advance. He said he had chosen
to run because some fellow students had
“It didn't start out as a planned cam
paign. I was recruited by a group of stu
dents a few weeks ago, by people who felt
that not enough people were on the ballot.
He said he was proud of the student
body for having taken it upon themselves
to elect him.
“It was an election about people taking
more affirmative steps to take part in. It
makes me feel positive that my fellow law
students took the time to write in my name.
I’m really proud of them for paying atten
tion to the election. It’s pleasant, but not
surprising,” Milner said.
Although he was elected Tuesday, he
said he already would be taking the reins as
representative next week, according to Stu
dent Congress Speaker Monica Cloud, with
whom he spoke Wednesday night.
He said Goud had told him he would
take over the vacancy left by the Student
Congress representative fiom Dist. 1 who
resigned before the election.
“I think it just means that I have to learn
a little more as I go. I don’t expect it to be
significant,” Milner said. “Just going on
