The Rocky Mountains' wolves have been removed from the Endangered Species List, a decision which will not pass without controversy. There's no doubt that, by the standards established in 1995, wolf reintroduction has been a howling success. There are doubts that this can continue once Montana, Idaho, and especially Wyoming get to enact their own management plans. Keeping wolf populations to the rock-bottom minimum allowed by the Feds is not likely to sustain a healthy population. On the other hand, the wolves have demonstrated that they can replace heavy losses each year, if they're allowed the habitat to roam in. This will be interesting.
