Legislature Next Step in Wolf Management in WY

Posted: Oct 28, 2011
Governor Mead says Wyoming's wolf delistment is now up to the legislature.

He says the need is for legislative action conforming statutes to the agreement reached with the Department of Interior. Mead says he feels his staff has been successful in explaining their feeling on wolf management and why it would be a good plan to turn control over to Wyoming.

"I would not even try to say what the Legislature is going to do, although I would say my staff has been fairly successful in reaching out to members of the Legislature explaining why we think this is a good plan to move forward and how it would turn control over wolves to Wyoming and have them delisted," Governor Mead said.
 Earlier this month the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service published a proposed delisting rule for wolves in Wyoming.
