Wolves no Longer Endangered

Wolves in five states will no longer be protected under the Endangered Species Act.

Wolves in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, and Washington will be taken off the federal endangered species list. A rider, included in the budget bill signed by President Barack Obama last week, called for the removal over concerns of wildlife population management. While Montana Sen. Jon Tester, who introduced the rider with Idaho Rep. Mike Simpson, considers it a victory, the change has been met with disappointment from animal-conservation groups such as The Humane Society of the United States and Defenders of Wildlife. This is the first time an animal has been removed from the endangered species list by an act of Congress.
