Mead Praises Wolf De-listing

Governor Matt Mead

Governor Matt Mead has applauded the Interior Department for its decision to de-list wolves in Wyoming. The action effectively returns management of wolves to the State of Wyoming on October 1st. Mead calls the move “appropriate” given the numbers of wolves in the state have reached the federal criteria for de-listing.  “I commend Secretary Salazar and Director Dan Ashe for their commitment to this process and for helping the State achieve wolf delisting in Wyoming,” Governor Mead said.  “This is a long process that started when I first came into office.”  Wyoming’s wolf management plan was reviewed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and by independent wolf scientists twice. Mead says now he is confident that plan will provide a sustainable wolf population in Northwest Wyoming and that the state will manage the wolves in such a way that the species will not be relisted.
