Federal wildlife officials say more than 1,300 Gray Wolves in most of the Northern Rocky Mountains will be removed from the Endangered Species List within 60 days.

Protections remain in place for wolves in Wyoming because of its shoot-on-sight law for the predators.  There are no immediate plans to hunt the small wolf populations in Oregon and Washington.  No packs have been established in Utah.

Here are some answers to some questions about wolves and the rider.

Plans are underway to reinstitute a wolf hunt in Montana and the gray wolf’s days of roaming Idaho’s high country without hunters to contend with are numbered.

 

edit:  From the Greater Yellowstone Coalition:  "While we believe Congress intervening to delist a specific species sets an unfortunate precedent — placing politics over science in management decisions regarding sensitive wildlife — we must now focus on the future. Much is at stake during this transition to state management, and GYC has a lot of work ahead.

And GYC, as the only regional group working on-the-ground in all three states, will be closely monitoring the implementation of state wolf management. We will work with state wildlife agencies and local stakeholders to ensure wolves are managed like other wildlife, based on sound science and public involvement to ensure they continue to fill their ecological niche on the landscape. Americans care deeply about Greater Yellowstone’s wildlife, including wolves. If the states don’t get it right, we will blow the whistle."
