ASI: Comment Now on Delisting of Gray Wolf

In a move that signals a win for conservation efforts, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposes to remove the gray wolf from the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife. Initially listed in 1974, gray wolf populations have exceeded recovery goals by more than 300 percent.

“Celebrating the conservation success, now is clearly the time to return management of this species to the states,” said American Sheep Industry Association President Benny Cox. “Removing this species from the Endangered Species list is underpinned by sound science and has bipartisan support. But it remains critical that America’s sheep producers provide comment to the Federal Record.”

Comments should include your name and a description of your operation, your support for ASI and the Public Lands Council’s comments in favor of the proposed rule to de-list the gray wolf, and any concerns or experiences you have had with gray wolves. Comments are due by May 14.

ASI is an equal opportunity employer. It is the national trade organization supported by 45 state sheep associations, benefiting the interests of more than 88,000 sheep producers.
