Cravaack Applauds De-listing the Grey Wolf

Minnesota Congressman Chip Cravaack is among those who feel we could do with a few less timberwolves in the state. 

Cravaack said he was pleased Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar plans to remove the gray wolf from its list of threatened species in Minnesota.  

The 8th District Republicans says, "There can be no argument that wolves have experienced a dramatic comeback in Minnesota were we now have more wolves than the rest of the lower 48 states combined."  He goes on to say, "With no predators and not enough natural prey, gray wolves now pose a serious threat to cattle ranchers and sheep herders in the Eighth District. 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.”
