Prediction or Assessment?

From the good folks at the Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility:
The federal government is killing record numbers of warm-blooded animals, particularly carnivores, according to agency statistics compiled by Sinapu and Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER). In addition, the number of federally protected wolves killed has been steadily rising – up six-fold over the past decade – with nearly 300 wolves dispatched last year alone.
Whatever good will the group had hoped to build with a reasoned argument crashes on the following hyperbole:
"This annual carnage is just staggering," said Wendy Keefover-Ring of Sinapu, noting that Wildlife Services killed approximately six million animals in the period between 2003 and 2005. "Wildlife Services is like the wildlife equivalent of Blackwater, shooting first and deflecting questions later."
