According to an article from the Michigan Water Stewardship Program, as of Friday, June 27, wolves have officially been removed from the Federal Endangered Species List in the western Great Lakes region including Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota. The management authority over wolves in Michigan has been returned to the Department of Natural Resources. Wolves will "remain a protected, non-game species in Michigan, but state management will afford more options when dealing with wolves preying on livestock or dogs." Look to CPL for more resources on wolves or search one of our databases for information on the Endangered Species Act: Science in Context or Opposing Viewpoints in Context.
