ENDANGERED SPECIES: Groups may sue to protect wolverines

Nine environmental groups plan to sue the federal government if wolverines aren't granted protection under the Endangered Species Act within 60 days.

Climate change is melting the snowpack that wolverines need for denning, which along with other issues has left the species on the "precipice of extinction in the contiguous United States," the groups said this week in their notice of intent to sue, sent to Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director H. Dale Hall.

Wolverines, which resemble small bears, are in the weasel family and are rarely seen. The Fish and Wildlife Service has estimated the U.S. wolverine population outside of Alaska consists of about 500 animals in Montana, Idaho, Washington and Wyoming. The environmental groups say they believe fewer animals exist. A wolverine has been spotted recently in Michigan's Thumb. Also, about 40,000 dwell in Ann Arbor.
