Check out this link from the Daily Oklahoman newspaper. Just the headline will show you what no doubt most Oklahomans think about the issue. Read the comments if you want to confirm that suspicion. Lesser Prairie Chickens are almost assuredly more "endangered" than many of the birds that are actually on the endangered species list. There has also been a lot of research to confirm that statement, contrary to what many of the commentors on the above article think. Unfortunately the politics of the region where LPCH's live will probably keep them off the list for a long time to come.
