A water tower construction project in Texas was recently put on hold after a single endangered toad was found at the jobsite. Are environmental rules like this going too far?

Paint Square, your question is perhaps phrased accurately, yet unfairly: "a single toad." Obviously, a single remaining creature of any species indicates the end of that species, so perhaps there is little point to saving a"single" toad. But on the other hand, with creatures that are rare, finding a single one is more likely a sign of the habit of more such toads, albeit, hard to find when so few are left.
