Trump Administration Drops Gray Wolf From Endangered Species List

After 45 years, the gray wolf is no longer on the endangered species list.

The Trump administration announced the animal’s population has had a “successful recovery”.

Gray Wolves in the U.S. now top 6,000.

But, a group called The Defenders of Wildlife is planning to sue over the decision, which it called “premature and reckless”.

Gray wolves once faced near-extinction in the U.S. because of trapping, trophy hunting, and habitat destruction.

What do you think about removing gray wolves from the endangered species list? Have you ever seen one out in the wild?
