Cravaack: De-list Wolves

U.S. Rep. Chip Cravaack, R-Minn., praises a federal decision to remove Minnesota gray wolves from the list of threatened species.

“There can be no argument that wolves have experienced a dramatic comeback in Minnesota where we now have more wolves than the rest of the lower 48 states combined,” Cravaack said. “Unfortunately, with no predators and not enough natural prey, gray wolves now pose a serious threat to cattle ranchers and sheep herders. … Federally de-listing the gray wolf will allow better management at the state level and create a healthier wolf population, all while reducing the amount of contact and conflict between humans and wolves.”
