A bill introduced in the U.S. House last month would prohibit treating gray wolves in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan as an endangered species. The bill, called the Western Great Lakes Management Act of 2011, is sponsored by U.S. Rep. John Kline (R-Minnesota) and co-sponsored by U.S. Reps Michele Bachmann (R-Minnesota), Chip Cravaack (R-Minnesota), Candice Miller (R-Michigan), Erik Paulsen (R-Minnesota), Stevan Pearce (R-New Mexico), Collin Peterson (DFL-Minnesota), Thomas Petri (R-Wisconsin), and James Sensenbrenner (R-Wisconsin). According to federal documents, the act is in the hands of the U.S. House Committee On Natural Resources. Were the act to be approved it would prohibit any wolf species, subspecies or population segment of Canis lupus to be treated as endangered in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan – and the bill would also include the prohibition of wolves being treated as a threatened species, an essential experimental population, or as a nonessential experimental population in those same states
