Adrian Treves one of the co signers stated:

“Treves’ view changed during the winter of 2013-2014 when, he maintains, the methods changed. “Those methods for counting wolves changed substantially and they changed in a way that made them not transparent and not open to public scrutiny or scientific scrutiny,” he says.”
Treves furthers states:

“Treves and his fellow co-signers are calling for a temporary emergency relisting of wolves as endangered to allow an independent team of scientists to review the status of the population since an annual hunt launched in Wisconsin three years ago.”
