Wolf News: Feds stop Wisconsin wolf cull; Wyoming sues USFWS

Wolves, as usual, are making headlines. Here's the latest: In Wisconsin, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service had issued a permit to the state Department of Natural Resources for the killing of up to 43 gray wolves. Now, siding with animal welfare and environmental groups, a federal court has barred the state from killing any of the endangered animals, tying the hands of officials who must deal with problem wolves. Farther west, the state of Wyoming plans to sue the federal government over last month's rejection of the state's wolf-management plan and federal inaction on the state's request for changes in wolf-management regulations. Referring the USFWS, Gov. Dave Freudenthal told the Associated Press, "So far, their position has been their way or the highway. We've chosen neither; we're going to court."
