Cheney Introduces Bill to Delist Gray Wolf in Wyoming

The Gray Wolf would no longer be protected under the Endangered Species Act under a bill introduced by Wyoming’s only member of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Republican Liz Cheney introduced the bill Tuesday.

“Wyoming should be able to manage the gray wolf without outside interference,” Cheney says in a press release. “This bill will stop the ‘management by litigation’ culture that has done so much damage to our state.”

Cheney’s statement says the bill would see wolf populations managed by Wyoming and states in the Great Lakes region.

“This bill instructs the Fish and Wildlife Service to delist and prohibits judicial review of that determination,” Cheney says in the release. “Wyoming will once again be able to manage the gray wolf population in a way that serves the best interests of the citizens of our state.”

Gray wolves were reintroduced in 1995 before being delisted in 2008. They were listed once again in 2010, before the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service delisted the species in 2012, handing management to Wyoming under its federally-approved Wolf Management Plan.

The species was placed back on the list in 2014.

The Gray Wolf is not protected in Idaho, Washington, Oregon and Montana.
