Gray wolf no longer endangered

Wisconsin federal legislators lobbied Monday to remove gray wolves from the federal endangered species list after their recent increase in population.

In a letter to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin, D-Madison, Sen. Herb Kohl, D-Wisconsin, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisconsin, and the other Wisconsin congressmen said the Wisconsin gray wolf population has returned to an ecologically manageable size and therefore should be removed from the Endangered Species list.

Excuse me, but the gray wolf & mexican wolf are both still in danger. Reaching 100 wolves is not a goal, but a small increase on what we want. For more information, here are 2 links I would highly recommend to every wolf-lover.

I'm glad the wolf populous is making a comeback! Hopefully they don't have too many problems with space...

Gray wolves are only endangered in a few states. That doesn't make the entire species 'endangered', unlike many people believe. Gray wolves are listed as Least Concern by the IUCN: http://www.iucnredlist.org/apps/redlist/details/3746/0

Wolves are present in roughly about 10 states across the US. Ten hardly qualifies as 'a few'. In total the United States has a population of well over 9,000 wolves. A vast majority of US wolf populations are healthy and formidable.
21 wolves in New Mexico
50 wolves in Arizona
7,000 - 11,200 wolves in Alaska (stable/increasing population)
705 wolves in Idaho (stable population)
566 wolves in Montana (increasing population)
320 wolves in Wyoming (increasing population)
2,922 wolves in Minnesota (increasing population)
825 wolves in Wisconsin (increasing population)
520 wolves in Michigan, including 16 on Isle Royale (increasing population)
100+ wolves in North Carolina (stable/slightly increasing population)

Source: http://www.wolf.org/wolves/learn/wow/re ... ed_States/
States such as Colorado and Washington also have a small number of wolves, but the populations are slowly stabilizing/increasing.

And you can't forget about Canada, and it's increasing population of 52,000 - 60,000 timber wolves.

The gray wolf is not endangered. Two species of wolf (the red wolf and the Ethiopian wolf) and a couple of subspecies (e.g. Mexican wolf, Indian wolf) are endangered, and they do require protection. But gray wolves do not.

Internationally, there are approximately 200,000 wolves in 57 countries.

This is why the wolf is a Least Concern animal. Because it's not endangered, and it definitely is not going to die from extinction anytime soon.

This is great to hear! Although I might have to do research and see if they are endangered in Canada.

Wow, awesome news to hear. I just went on a trip to the Great Lakes, and then into Wisconsin, but I didn't get to see any grey wolves. :C Ahh well, thanks for the share!

Good news, Canada actually may have the highest wolf population in the world :)
No worries there
