Even as Wyoming waits for a decision from the state legislature and a related decision from the US Fish and Wildlife Service regarding de-listing of the wolf in the Rocky Mountain region, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar yesterday announced that the gray wolf would be removed from the endangered species list in the Great Lakes Region. That region includes Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and portions of adjoining states. That de-listing will take effect in 30 days. In this region, a five-member panel of scientists met in Denver last October to review the Fish and Wildlife Service proposed delisting rule and Wyoming wolf management plan. At the same time, a 100-day public comment period on the proposed delisting rule was launched and a public hearing was held in Riverton November 15th . The results of the review are expected to be published by the end of the year.
