Feds drop appeal of WY wolf ruling

The Associated Press reports that federal officials have dropped their appeal of a Wyoming federal court decision regarding Wyoming's wolf plan.

In November 2010, Johnson ruled that the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service must take another look at Wyoming's wolf management plan and reassess its decision not to delist wolves in Wyoming. Johnson ruled FWS was arbitrary and capricious in requiring that wolves in all of Wyoming be included in a trophy game classification rather than just "a portion of northwestern Wyoming."

Federal officials filed an appeal of the decision, but have since dropped the appeal, and now are actively negotiating with state officials, according to the AP report.
