This in today from a press release at Defenders of Wildlife:
Conservation groups filed suit today challenging the federal government’s elimination of Endangered Species Act protections for Wyoming wolves. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service turned wolf management in Wyoming over to state officials this fall even though the state’s wolf‐management policies promote unlimited wolf killing in a “predator” zone that extends throughout most of the state and provides inadequate protection for wolves even where killing is regulated. The state policies will result in wolf deaths that undermine the recovery of the species. The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
This is welcome news in a year that’s been full of wretched stories and outcomes for wolves of the Western states and beyond. (See the Howling for Justice page for these accounts.) To support Defenders of Wildlife in this effort, click here for the donation page.
