Proposed Ruling:

SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service or USFWS),  have evaluated the classification status of gray wolves (Canis lupus)  currently listed in the contiguous United States and Mexico under the  Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). Based on our  evaluation, we propose to remove the gray wolf from the List of  Endangered and Threatened Wildlife. We propose this action because the  best available scientific and commercial information indicates that the  currently listed entities do not meet the definitions of a threatened  species or endangered species under the Act due to recovery. The effect  of this rulemaking action would be to remove the gray wolf from the  Act's protections. This proposed rule does not have any effect on the  separate listing of the Mexican wolf (Canis lupus baileyi) as  endangered under the Act.<<<Read More>>>
