Trappers, property rights advocates, forest industry officials, and the state De
Trappers, property rights advocates, forest industry officials, and the state Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife lined up against environmentalists at a federal hearing in Bangor last week about listing the Canada lynx as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. A suit brought by Restore: The North Woods against the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service was settled last February by an agreement to list the lynx as threatened rather than endangered. A spokesman for Restore said that listing the lynx as endangered would help secure federal money for population studies and would not lead to further hunting or forestry restrictions as opponents fear. With details on the lynx, its habitat, and its presence in Maine. With related editorial.
