Great Lakes Gray Wolves' Spot Safe On Endangered Species List — For Now

Great Lakes Gray Wolves

Gray wolves in the Great Lakes region should keep their spot on the endangered species list, the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., ruled Tuesday.


The ruling upholds a 2014 federal judge's decision that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service was wrong to have taken the gray wolf off the list in 2011, citing its rebounding population.


Being on the endangered species list means hunting restrictions, habitat preservation and federal dollars used for protecting the animal.


But managing the gray wolf population in the region has been a source of controversy and disagreement for years; it's has been removed and put back on the endangered species list several times since 2003.
