Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; 12-Month Finding
on a Petition To List the Gunnison's Prairie Dog as an Endangered or
Threatened Species

AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice of 12-month petition finding.


SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), announce a
12-month finding on a petition to list the Gunnison's prairie dog
(Cynomys gunnisoni) as an endangered or threatened species under the
Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). After review of the
best available scientific and commercial information on both subspecies
of Gunnison's prairie dog, we find that listing either C. g. gunnisoni
or C. g. zuniensis or both is not warranted at this time.
The best
available information indicates that populations of both subspecies are
stable and that there are no threats causing or projected to cause
either subspecies to be at risk of extinction. This action also removes
the Gunnison's prairie dog from our candidate list. Although listing is
not warranted at this time, we ask the public to submit to us any new
information that becomes available concerning threats to the Gunnison's
prairie dog or its habitat at any time.

DATES: This finding announced in this document was made on November 14,

ADDRESSES: This finding is available on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov at Docket Number FWS-R6-ES-2013-0115. Supporting
documentation we used in preparing this finding is available for public
inspection, by appointment, during normal business hours at the U.S.
