Wolves delisted

Sorry for the abbreviated posts to follow... I've been packing & running errands for the past several days. In case you missed it both MSNBC and CNN ran stories over the weekend on the Bush Administration's removal of gray wolves from the endangered species list. According to the CNN article, this means that "the wolves can be shot and killed once they step out of Yellowstone National Park as soon as the affected states establish a hunting season." A lawsuit to restore the wolves to the list is being planned but in the meantime Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana are moving forward with hunting plans in an attempt to reduce the population of 1,500 wolves to between 900 to 1,250.
