From this AP story via kivitv.com:
Lawmakers in Washington are renewing their push to legalize gray wolf hunting as they seek to curb the predators' growing population. Montana Rep. Denny Rehberg introduced two bills Wednesday to strip the gray wolf of federal endangered species protections.
_The first, co-sponsored by Rep. Mike Simpson and Rep. Raul Labrador of Idaho, would only apply to wolves in Montana and Idaho. The second is co-sponsored by a bipartisan group of lawmakers from 12 states and would lift protections on wolves nationwide.
