Wolf Plan Still Discussed

Laramie,Wy – Two years after rejecting Wyoming's law for managing wolves the federal government is going to take another look at it. This will be part of a review of the classification of the wolf as an endangered species. The U-S Fish and Wildlife Service's wolf recovery coordinator, Ed Bangs, concedes his agency cannot keep politics out of this process. Bangs says if they decide Wyoming's law is good enough, it will be two years before they remove federal protections for wolves.
The state of Wyoming asked for this review earlier this summer.
