Sen. Bill Hansell and Rep. Greg Barreto seek to ratify the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission’s November decision to delist the wolves despite a lawsuit filed by environmental groups to keep the Wolves on the Endangered Species List.

There are only 81 Wolves living in Oregon but state biologists recommended removing their endangered status citing that they are no longer in danger of extinction in the state.  Independent scientists disagree.  They feel that Wolves are only present in 12% of their potential habitat in the state and that Oregon could easily accomodate 1,450 Wolves there.

The proposal by Hansell and Barreto include a provision that would immediately make the lawsuit moot or stymie the process.  It will be introduced into the House as a bill in February.

The proposals seek to amend state law so that wolves can not be relisted there. Thumbs Down
