Park County joins state wolf lawsuit

CODY, Wyo. (AP) -- Park County will join the state's court fight demanding the federal government accept Wyoming's plan to manage wolves once they are delisted.

County attorney Bryan Skoric said the county was notified July 26 it could intervene in the lawsuit.

"As a plaintiff in the lawsuit, Park County can now align itself with the state to argue that the federal government has failed to delist and properly manage the gray wolf population in Wyoming," he said.

The issue is important for the county, he added, "as we have more known wolf packs than any other Wyoming county."

In order for the wolf to be removed from the endangered species list, Wyoming, Idaho and Montana must have approved plans for taking over management of the animals.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service accepted the plans offered by Idaho and Montana but rejected Wyoming's. Wyoming then sued, saying its plan met approval from scientists.
