Default The Gunnison Sage Grouse "threatened status"


The Gunnison sage-grouse, a sagebrush-dwelling bird who lives mainly in Colorado and Utah,
was designated “threatened” under the Endangered Species Act by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
The decision was based on “sufficient scientific and commercial data to propose listing.”
It doesn’t cover the more well-known Greater sage-grouse.

There has already been pushback from opponents to the listing, because the decision
is expected to hamper oil and gas exploration and ranching on 1.4 million acres of land.
Colorado’s Gov. John Hickenlooper has already threatened a lawsuit, saying,
“We will do everything we can, including taking the agency to court, to fight this listing.”
