U.S. removes gray wolf from endangered list
U.S. removes gray wolf from endangered list

Gray wolves were removed Friday from the list of threatened and endangered species in the western Great Lakes, including Wisconsin, and portions of the northern Rocky Mountain states.

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar affirmed a January decision by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services to delist the wolf.

"The recovery of the gray wolf throughout significant portions of its historic range is one of the great success stories of the Endangered Species Act," Salazar said in a statement. "When it was listed as endangered in 1974, the wolf had almost disappeared from the continental United States. Today, we have more than 5,500 wolves, including more than 1,600 in the Rockies."

The Western Great Lakes region is home to around 4,000 gray wolves in portions of Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The estimated wolf population in Wisconsin is a minimum of 537, according to the U.S. Department of the Interior.

Hunting and farming groups in Wisconsin have expressed worries that wolves harm livestock and attack hunting dogs and pets. Wolf attacks on livestock and domestic animals tend to increase in the spring after wolves have litters.
