(WASHINGTON, DC) – The Obama administration has proposed a plan that would end federal protections for gray wolves. The measure would give all management authority back to the states, which is already par for the course in Idaho. Officials say wolf populations are no longer threatened enough to warrant continued federal oversight, and that state fish and wildlife agencies are sufficiently equipped to handle wolves. Gray wolves have been on the endangered species list for more than 40 years.
