Calif Postpones Decision on Endangered Species Protections for Wolves

"The California Fish and Game Commission on Wednesday postponed a decision on whether to afford gray wolves protection under the state's Endangered Species Act.

Acknowledging the passion the issue generates, the commission voted unanimously to extend public comment on the matter for 90 days and will take up the issue at the next meeting in June.

The decision is in response to the arrival of a young male wolf known as OR-7 who began to range between Oregon and northern California in late 2011."
