ODFW report says Oregon has met criteria to delist wolves

Taking wolves off Oregon’s endangered species list won’t significantly affect their management because the state wolf plan would remain in place, according to a biological status review that will be presented to the state wildlife commission on Friday. Taking no action on the delisting question, however, might undermine support for the 10-year-old wolf plan and “thereby erdicing public tolerance for wolves,” the report concludes.
