California May Give Gray Wolf Endangered Species Protection

The Sacramento Bee reports that the California Fish and Game Commission will be considering giving California endangered species protection to the Grey Wolf. Earlier this year a gray wolf came into California from Oregon ( see After 87 Years A Gray Wolf Returns To California).

State scientists believe other gray wolves may migrate into California and could start breeding populations. There are concerns that ranchers may view the wolves as a threat to livestock making protected status a high priority.

Gray Wolves already have federal endangered protections. See California’s Gray Wolf Has Federal Endangered Species Protection

    • I think he is back in Oregon now. Did he get as far south as Plumas County?
