Does California Still Need to Protect Gray Wolves? Trump Administration Says No, Advocates Disagree

The Trump administration wants to strip federal endangered species protections from gray wolves, even though a California judge ruled earlier this year that the they should remain protected in California. "After being driven to the brink of extinction, wolves today live in only a fraction of their historic range and they've really only just begun to return to California,” said Ash Lauth with the Center for Biological Diversity…“The gray wolf no longer meets the definition of a threatened or endangered species,” U.S. Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt wrote in a statement. “Today the wolf is thriving on its vast range and it is reasonable to conclude it will continue to do so in the future.”
