California’s controversial wolf-management plan to be discussed at Cal State Long Beach

…Hunters and ranchers worry wolves will ravage big-game populations of elk and deer, as well as livestock. Environmentalists are concerned about provisions in the plan that would allow the wolf, listed by California as an endangered species, to be killed in certain circumstances. The controversial plan will be discussed at a public meeting Tuesday at Cal State Long Beach, to give stakeholders in Southern California a voice in extending protections for the predators as the “Shasta pack” of two adults and five pups reestablish residency in former haunts.
