Judge rejects challenge by environmental groups on sage grouse listing

This species needs some kind of protection. But, unfortunately, Western Watersheds Project and WildEarth Guardians (along with the Center for Biological Diversity) have paralyzed the Fish and Wildlife Service with their endless appeals and lawsuits. There is nothing that they don’t want listed. There has to be some kind of priority in listing and it has to be decided by wildlife professionals. These groups (staffed by non-biologists) have made professional prioritizing impossible.
