Lame-Duck Republicans Target Endangered Gray Wolves

Gray wolves have been listed as endangered or threatened in the lower 48 states since the 1960s, but the lame-duck Republican House wants to strip federal protections from most wolves.

The House voted 196-180 to approve H.R.6784 on Nov. 16 with 187 Republicans and nine Democrats voting for it. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wis.), would strip federal protection from gray wolves, except Mexican wolves in the southwest, and prevent courts from reviewing the changes.

“This final, pathetic stab at wolves exemplifies House Republicans’ longstanding cruelty and contempt for our nation’s wildlife,” said Brett Hartl, government affairs director at the Center for Biological Diversity. “The American people overwhelmingly support the Endangered Species Act and the magnificent animals and plants it protects.”
