Lawmakers want gray wolf off endangered list

More than 70 lawmakers are asking the Obama administration to take the gray wolf off the endangered species list.

Sixty-six Republicans and six Democrats in the House and Senate signed a letter to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that argues the gray wolf is no longer in need of federal protection. They said the endangered species designation is making it harder for ranchers and farmers to protect livestock.

“Unmanaged wolves are devastating to livestock and indigenous wildlife. Currently, state wildlife officials have their hands tied any time wolves are involved,” the lawmakers, led by Sens. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) in the Senate and Reps. Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.) and Doc Hastings (R-Wash.) in the House.
