Governor Mead Signs Wolf Bill

Wolf Bill Signing (Renny Mackay)

Governor Matt Mead signed the Wolf Management Bill into law Wednesday. The measure complies with an agreement the state and federal governments reached last year over how to end endangered species act protections for the animals. Governor Mead says it was team effort to get the bill passed. The state  wants to allow trophy hunting for wolves in a flexible zone around Yellowstone National Park beginning this fall.
The state plan would classify wolves as predators that could be shot on sight in the rest of the state.  Governor Mead says the Wyoming Game and Fish Department is currently working on what the appropriate  number of licenses are going to be for the wolf hunt. The Governor says he suspects they are going to be very conservative. The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission will make the final determination on what the number will be.

Wyoming officials say they’re hopeful Congress will enact legislation specifying that the delisting action can’t be challenged in the courts. congress earlier extended such protection to wolf delisting actions in Idaho and Montana.
