Wolves to Be Hunted if Removed From U.S. Endangered List February 05, 2007 11:42 AM



Gray wolves in the U.S.'s northern Rocky Mountain region may become the victims of their own success.

Last week the U.S. government proposed removing the animals from the endangered species list, citing a healthy rebound in numbers since wolves were reintroduced to the area in the mid-1990s.

If the proposal passes, within a year state rather than federal officials will be in charge of managing the gray wolves.

The move has many conservationists howling, because leaders in three of the affected states have said that they will reinstate wolf hunting.
