US Representative Defazio speaks out against delisting gray wolves from OR endangered species list

320x180_00312P00-OXRMUOre. — US Representative Peter Defazio is speaking out about the recent move to delist gray wolves from the Oregon Endangered Species List.

In a statement, Defazio calls the decision outrageous and says the gray wolf needs protection now more than ever.

Defazio says the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission, which voted 4-2 to delist the wolves, caved to ranching and other special interests instead of basing their decision on quote “sound science.”
