According to the Missoulian, Montana’s congresscritters are starting this year’s push to get wolf management moved out from under federal control . . .
Gray wolves returned to the crosshairs of Montana’s congressional delegation Wednesday.
Rep. Denny Rehberg announced the introduction of two pieces of legislation that would permanently remove them from the protections of the Endangered Species Act, and Sen. Jon Tester sent a letter to Interior Secretary Ken Salazar asking him to allow hunting of wolves in Montana to control their population growth.
(Note that there was also a supporting resolution passed in the Montana House.)
