Wolf Listing
In this May 3, 2009 file photo provided by Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, Russ Morgan, ODFW wolf coordinator, is seen with a wolf as it recovers from anesthesia used during a radio-collaring effort. The states of Oregon and Washington are telling the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service they would like to take over statewide management of wolves spreading from re introductions in the Northern Rockies. Ranchers support state control, but environmentalists want the federal government to stay in charge as wolves move West. Currently, state authorities have jurisdiction in the eastern portion of each state, where most of the wolves are. (AP Photo/Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife)
