Wolves to lose federal protections, MN media reporting

I'd said yesterday that a move to drop federal protections for wolves 

Wisconsin is killing its wolves

was likely coming, so get ready, Wisconsin and the DNR, because Minnesota media are reporting the announcement is being made there today.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Thursday will announce a new rule to remove federal Endangered Species Act protections for gray wolves across the Lower 48 states.

U.S. Interior Secretary David Bernhardt, who oversees the Fish and Wildlife Service, is slated to make the announcement at the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife refuge in Bloomington, Minnesota.

The move will hand wolf management back to individual states and tribal governments, allowing each state to decide if hunting and trapping should be allowed to cull wolf numbers. 

This has been a Ron Johnson project for years
