Mead Seeks Support For Wolf Plan

Wolf

Governor Matt Mead yesterday urged the state legislature to pass the proposed state wolf management plan and bring an end to the state’s lack of control of the species within its borders.  Mead told the lawmakers that the years of court battles have only led to a 10% increase in the number of wolves in the state each year and prevented the state from managing the animal for the good of the state’s agriculture, wildlife, and outfitting business. Mead told the group, time is not on the state’s side as the wolf population here continues to increase.  Mead pointed out that the Secretary of the Interior and the Director of Fish and Wildlife have already approved of the plan under consideration.  With the legislature’s approval, Mead said he would work together with the state’s Washington Delegation and others to win Congressional approval of the plan.
