Cattle Groups Want Gray Wolf De Listed

Cattle groups are hailing the proposal by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to de list the gray wolf from the Endangered Species Act. The predator has been a problem in Minnesota causing damage to livestock and potential hazards for humans and pets. Minnesota Cattlemen’s President Dar Geiss says he’s pleased the feds are coming around to their way of thinking regarding the wolf.

Geiss says with the de listing the control of wolves will be left up to the states where the problem is handled more efficiently and effectively.

Minnesota Cattlemen, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and the Public Lands Council all say wolf depredation of livestock is increasing to uncontrollable levels in areas where wolves are still protected.
