Wolves Receive Endangered Species Protection

Massive wolf hunts have been stopped in their tracks, thanks to a federal court ruling that has restored endangered species protection for these animals in Montana and Idaho. More than 500 wolves have been gunned down since the U.S. government stripped them of federal protection. “The ruling effectively returns all wolves in the Northern Rockies to the endangered species list,” confirms Peter Lehner, executive director of the Natural Resources Defense Council.
