CASPER, WY - Today, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) released the following statement in response to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife’s announcement that it will initiate a comprehensive status review of the gray wolf in the western U.S.
“The state of Wyoming has long demonstrated it can effectively manage and protect the state’s wolf population. Both the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the courts have determined the gray wolf has recovered enough to be delisted in the state.
“Today’s actions are just more of the endless political antics from Washington bureaucrats and extreme environmentalists who have no interest in doing what’s right for Wyoming. Wyoming, not Washington, continues to be in the best position to manage the state’s wolf population.”
