Summary:

U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service documents released to two environmental groups under FOIA show that the service rejected advice from its own career scientists who supported listing the mountain plover bird as endangered, the Star-Tribune of Jackson Hole, Wyo., reported. The groups are suing the agency, arguing that the federal government denied protecting the plover in Wyoming because of politics in the Bush administration.
