Wyoming Gov. wants wolves delisted
CHEYENNE, Wyo. - Gov. Matt Mead believes Wyoming ultimately should get the same sort of deal to end federal protections for wolves that’s in the works for Idaho and Montana.
A bill pending before Congress would end Endangered Species Act protections for wolves in those states, putting a halt to ongoing litigation from environmental groups. But, Wyoming isn’t included in the bill.
Mead said Tuesday he regards the bill for the other two states as a model for what could be done in Wyoming. He says he’s hopeful his administration ultimately can work out a similar arrangement with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
