Senator Enzi was pleased after the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service removed the Gray Wolf from the endangered species list, late last month. Wolf management in the state (outside of Yellowstone National Park) will now be handled by Wyoming's Game and Fish Department.
This is considered a win for Wyoming farmers and ranchers, who have stood by helplessly as the expanding wolf population has destroyed livestock and native wildlife.
"Wyoming should be in charge of Wyoming's wildlife," said Enzi. "There is still plenty of room in Yellowstone for the federal government to do its job and manage wolves. Wyoming game managers will do their part to maintain the agreed upon wolf numbers outside the park."
