Interior moves to strip gray wolf protections

The Fish and Wildlife Service plans to soon publish a proposed rule removing ESA protections for gray wolves.  Under the proposed rule, management for the gray wolves would be returned to the individual states, according to a statement from FWS .  However, any proposed rule removing federal protections for gray wolves is certain to face legal challenges from environmental groups that blasted the announcement.  "Wolves should remain listed until they are fully recovered and can take their place as key parts of a healthy ecosystem," according to Taylor Jones, WildEarth Guardians' endangered species advocate.
