Senators introduce bill to delist wolves
January 18, 2017
Senators from Minnesota, Wisconsin and Wyoming on Tuesday introduced their version of a bill that would once again allow hunting and trapping of wolves in those states.
The bill is similar to one introduced earlier this month in the U.S. House and signals the likelihood that federal endangered species protections will end for the big carnivore sooner rather than later.
Sens. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn .; Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis .; Ron Johnson, R-Wis .; John Barrasso, R-Wyo .; and Mike Enzi, R-Wyo. introduced the bill that would "delist" the gray wolf in Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota and Wyoming and give control of the animal back to state and tribal wildlife agencies in those states.
