Activists Fear for Gray Wolf After It Gets Removed from Endangered Species List

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service removed the gray wolf from its endangered species list based on criteria laid out by Congress.

Activists argue the gray wolves have only reclaimed a fraction of their historical range and the population is too low to thrive in the wild without protection.

Conservationists fear that without oversight from the federal government, the population of 6,000 will decline as it becomes more susceptible to poaching and hunting.
