Keeping wolf on endangered list prompts US suit

Cheyenne, Wyoming (AP) – The state of Wyoming has filed suit
challenging the federal government’s recent decision to leave gray
wolves on the endangered species list in the state while delisting
them elsewhere.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced in April it was
removing gray wolves from the endangered list in Montana and Idaho
while maintaining federal protections in Wyoming.

Wyoming filed its lawsuit Tuesday in federal court in Cheyenne.
The state says the federal agency should turn wolf management over
to the state.

A federal judge last year rejected Wyoming’s plan to classify
wolves as predators that could be shot on sight in most of the
state.
