Wolf Delisting
A U.S. senator from Wisconsin has introduced an amendment to delist wolves in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan and Wyoming. The amendment to the Energy Policy Modernization Act is the second such amendment provided by congressional members in attempt to move delisting forward. Two congressional members from Wisconsin have written an opinion piece on the need for delisting. See the links below for more details.

Wisconsin Wolves
Wisconsin's effort to transplant elk in the west-central portion of the state has been hampered by predation from a local wolf pack. More elk will be brought in from Kentucky to boost the herd.

Washington Wolves
A northeastern Washington state wolf pack is being closely watched by wildlife officials after the pack of five surrounded a pair of dogs near a family's rural home. Residents fired shots to scare the wolves away.
