In November 2015 the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission, ignoring comments from 26 scientists, removed wolves from the state's endangered species list. The Center for Biological Diversity and allies then filed a lawsuit to challenge this decision. Our suit simply requests a judicial review to determine if the commission acted legally. We don't believe it did.
In an attempt to dodge our lawsuit, Republican legislators representing a handful of ranchers and hunters who want to halt wolf recovery in Oregon introduced House Bill 4040. If passed, this bill will prevent a judicial review of the decision to remove protections from wolves and set a dangerous precedent of allowing politicians to meddle with species conservation.
