California court upholds state protections for gray wolves

A state court judge ruled this week that the gray wolf, North America’s most controversial symbol of conservation success, should remain protected under the California Endangered Species Act.

The ruling, by San Diego Superior Court Judge Eddie Sturgeon, upheld a 2014 decision by the California Fish and Game Commission to protect the predators, which have expanded their range in the Golden State after the first lonely lobo was spotted eight years ago.
