Kagen, Bipartisan Colleagues Support DNR Request to Remove Gray Wolf from Endangered Species List

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

May 20, 2010

KAGEN, BIPARTISAN COLLEAGUES SUPPORT DNR REQUEST TO REMOVE GRAY WOLF FROM ENDANGERED SPECIES LIST

Kind, Petri, Ryan and Sensenbrenner join Kagen’s letter to Secretary of Interior

WASHINGTON, D.C. –  On behalf of all Wisconsin farm families, Congressman Kagen was joined today by Republicans and Democrats in the Wisconsin delegation in a letter to Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar in support of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources’ request to remove the gray wolf from the list of endangered species.

“Restoring the gray wolf’s survival was successful beyond expectations, and it is now time to remove them from the list of endangered species,” Dr. Kagen said.  “The DNR is convinced that the gray wolf is no longer at risk, and I’m pleased to be joined by my colleagues in supporting the DNR and their decision."

The growing gray wolf population prompted the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to ask federal authorities to remove the gray wolf from a list of federal endangered species.  The agency asked the U.S. Department of Interior for permission to reclassify the status of the wolf so state authorities would have more flexibility to control the population.
