Biden Administration Backs Gray Wolf Delisting, Effectively Greenlighting Fall Hunts
From Field & Stream:
The Biden Administration moved to dismiss a lawsuit that sought to relist gray wolves under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) last Firday, August 20. The action effectively paves the way for this fall’s state-managed wolf hunts to proceed as planned and cements the Trump Administration’s decision to delist gray wolves. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) Assistant Director for Ecological Services Gary Frazer told the Associated Press that the initial decision to delist wolves had been in the works for years before it was implemented by the Trump Administration—and that it was the correct course of action.
