Lawsuit filed to force USFWS to do national wolf recovery plan
There needs to be a national gray wolf recovery plan to help the species fully recover, according to a lawsuit filed against the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
The filing, made Tuesday by the Center for Biological Diversity, argues that the Fish and Wildlife Service has "prematurely and illegally" worked to reduce Endangered Species Act protections for the species. At least twice in the past five years courts have vacated agency decisions that went against providing ESA protections for gray wolves, the Center notes in its lawsuit.
