75 representatives, senators call for full delisting of gray wolf

Two of the four elected officials representing North-Central Washington in the nation’s capitol were among those signing a letter today calling for removal of the gray wolf from the endangered species list…”The full delisting of the gray wolf is long overdue,” the letter said.  Hastings said the current situation has created a confusing management and regulatory scheme that has left some states – including Washington, Oregon and Utah – in the unsustainable and random situation of having wolves listed on one side of a highway and delisted on the other.
