This is proposed federal legislation that would delist the gray wolf:

Here is the specific language of the American Big Game and Livestock Protection Act: S. 249 and H.R. 509

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,
Section 4 of the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1533) is amended by adding at the end the following:
`(j) Exemption of Gray Wolf- This Act shall not apply to any gray wolf (Canis lupus).'.
What Does this Bill Do?

  1. Returns wolves to state wildlife protections in all 50 states.
  2. Acknowledges the role of states, sportsmen and ranchers in wolf restoration.
  3. Ends wasteful litigation of non-endangered wolf populations.
  4. Restores the supremacy of State wildlife management vs. Federal wildlife management.
  5. Allows states to restore wildlife herds in peril.
  6. Prevents the spread of unnecessary destruction of wildlife.
  7. Protects our hunting and ranching heritage.
  8. Protects our hunting and livestock industries.
  9. Protects rural jobs and economies.
  10. Focuses limited resources on habitat conservation and wildlife populations in peril rather than litigation and attorneys.
  11. Protects the ESA from abuses and overreaching.

Online petitions don't mean squat and are nothing more than feel good web sites because there are no real, verifiable names attached to them just like the majority of posters on this site being anonymous.
