Senators Johnson and Baldwin Introduce Bill to Delist Gray Wolf

U-S Senators Ron Johnson and Tammy Baldwin are co-sponsoring legislation that would delist the gray wolf in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan and Wyoming.  The Interior Department is moving foward with a rule to remove gray wolves from the Endangered Species List and a 60-day public comment period opened today (Friday).  Their bill would allow states and tribes to manage the wolf populations.  Johnson said gray wolf delisting decisions should come from state wildlife experts, not partisan judges.  Baldwin says the population has recovered in the Great Lakes region and that’s why we should return management to the state of Wisconsin.
