Delisting wolves update
by Cat Urbigkit, Pinedale Online!
June 10, 2015

One June 9, the Interior and Environment Appropriations Subcommittee released its draft bill for FY2016. Included in the legislation is a rider which would require the Secretary of the Interior to delist gray wolves in Wyoming, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan from the list of endangered species. This rider, Section 121 of the Interior and Environment Appropriations bill, provides for the delisting of gray wolves and would prohibit that rule from being subjected to future judicial review.  Last year, a federal judge ordered that gray wolves in Wyoming and the Great Lakes region be returned to the list of endangered species. 

In 2011, a similar rider removed protection for wolves in Montana and Idaho.
