Wolf Legislation

Wyoming’s Representative Cynthia Lummis, along with a bipartisan group of House colleagues have joined together to introduce legislation that removes protections the gray wolf receives under the Endangered Species Act. Lummis explains that she believes Washington has caved to environmentalists determined to prevent the gray wolf’s delisting rather than basing their decision on sound science. Lummis says Wyoming met the federal government’s recovery goals eight years ago. Meanwhile, she says, (quoting now) “wolf populations are thriving in the West while ranchers and big game herds suffer.” Lummis says Wyoming’s wildlife officials are on the ground experts who should be the ones to carry out a balanced approach to wolf management. Lummis pledges that as long as wolves continue to hurt Wyoming’s livestock owners and attack large game herds, she will continue to fight for the predator’s delisting. Along with Lummis, lead sponsors of the most recent legislation include Representatives Jim Matheson of Utah, Denny Rehberg of Montana and Mike Ross or Arkansas.
