Feds Consider Dropping Wolves From Endangered Species Act

Associated Press reports the federal government is considering another attempt to drop legal protections for gray wolves across the lower 48 states.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Thursday told the news service it has begun a science-based review of the status of the wolf.  The Endangered Species Act protects gray wolves in most of the nation, and they cannot be killed unless threatening human life.

If the agency decides to begin the process of removing of the wolf from the endangered species list, it will publish a proposal by the end of the year.

“Any proposal will follow a robust, transparent and open public process that will provide opportunity for public comment,” the agency said.
