McMorris Rodgers Commends the Gray Wolf Endangered Species Delisting

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers released the following statement on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s decision to delist the gray wolf from the endangered species list.

"I applaud the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s proposal to delist the gray wolf as an endangered species. It is long overdue. We need to ensure wolf management is done in a realistic manner, taking into account the needs of Eastern Washington, which has nine known wolf packs,” said Cathy McMorris Rodgers. “I am confident that champions like Senator John Smith and Representatives Joel Kretz and Shelly Short will continue to oversee proper management at the State level. I am committed to a solution that makes sense for Eastern Washington and protects our livestock and farming communities."
