The feds kicked the can down the street a little farther, delaying a decision on placing wolverines under Endangered Species Act protection . . .
Federal wildlife officials have delayed until next summer a decision on whether wolverines should receive more federal protections.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said Tuesday that the delay will be used to address questions about the impacts of climate change on wolverine habitat. Spokesman Steve Segin says the agency will decide by Aug. 4 if wolverines should be listed under the Endangered Species Act.
