The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service today made formal their pledge to remove federal protections for wolves in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan — this time claiming those wolves are a distinct species from their eastern cousins.

The agency said the delisting plan has been submitted to the Federal Register and is asking for public comments over the next two months.

A public hearing is set for May 18 at the Northern Great Lakes Center near Ashland.

Three previous efforts to delist wolves over the past decade have failed when challenged in court. But federal regulators have added a new twist by using genetic science to claim that western Great Lakes "gray" wolves are mostly gray wolves and distinct from "eastern" wolves that roam in eastern Canada and once roamed the eastern U.S.

Sad looks like wolves are getting it from all sides.  The rule is expected to be challenged.

"Voters Favor Wolf Control Measures"

Wisconsinites may be divided on politics and policy right now, but on at least one issue they seem to have reached agreement.

At the 2011 Department of Natural Resources Spring Rule Hearings last week, questions about controlling the gray wolf population drew overwhelming support statewide. Of the roughly 5,500 people who participated in the spring hearings, fewer than a fifth objected to any of the gray wolf control measures, and not one county voted against them.

Multiple items about gray wolves were included in the hearing questionnaire.
