The gray wolf species in the Northern Rockies has faced its most severe threat in a century. While a lawsuit recently restored protections for wolves in 44 states, due to a series of administrative and legislative maneuvers over the past decade, wolves remain unprotected in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and portions of several adjacent states. It is time for these Northern Rockies states to end their hostility toward wolves.
