We are pleased that Judge Anderson removed the injunction that banned the use of dogs for hunting wolves. However, we are disappointed with Judge Anderson's decision to prohibit training of dogs to hunt wolves.
We will continue to seek input from the public and from stakeholders - including tribes - as we continue to develop permanent rules on the wolf season, and the use of dogs for both training and hunting of wolves.
