U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., released the following statement after the Trump Administration announced a final rule to delist the gray wolf from the endangered species list in the lower 48 states. In Wyoming, the gray wolf has been delisted since 2017.
“Delisting the gray wolf has been a long and bumpy road, but I think everyone should take pride in this announcement today,” Enzi said. “States like Wyoming have shown they are able to effectively manage the gray wolf. It is important to remember that the purpose of the Endangered Species Act is to get to this point, where a species is fully recovered. I am hopeful that even more species in the future will be able to reach this milestone.”
