Suit Filed Against Wyoming’s Kill‐at‐Will Wolf Policy

A federal decision allowing Wyoming to remove its grey wolves from the Endangered Species List is being challenged in court by several conservation groups. The groups filed suit with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, asking to reinstate protections for the wolves and stop the policy under which at least 49 wolves have been killed since Wyoming took over the population management in October.
