Jimenez Takes A Wolf Job with Wyoming

Laramie, WY – A federal wildlife official who helped
direct the reintroduction of grey wolves in Wyoming has accepted a new position coordinating the state of Wyoming's wolf program.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission announced the hiring of Mike Jimenez on Friday.

Jimenez has been the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Wyoming Wolf Recovery Project leader since 1999. In his new role, he will
oversee three state wolf management specialists.

Wyoming took over management of its wolf population last month when the animals were removed from the federal Endangered Species
List.
