Gray Wolf May Be Removed from Endangered Species List
The Mining Journal reports that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working on new federal proposals to reclassify gray wolves from endangered to threatened species across several states, including Michigan. The federal goal for wolf recovery in Michigan and Wisconsin was reached about a decade ago - 100 wolves on non-reservation lands, excluding Isle Royale National Park. A state recovery goal for Michigan of 200 wolves for five years has also been surpassed and wolves are currently listed by Michigan as a threatened species.
