No Dice On Wolf Deal, Judge Says

That wolf deal pitched last month — it’s a no-go, a Federal judge has ruled.

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and 10 plaintiffs had proposed a settlement on the status of wolves in Montana and Idaho, but U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy said he couldn’t buy off on it for various reasons — they’re detailed in an Associated Press story here.

Wolves in the Northern Rockies will remain on the endangered species list — for now. A budget bill in Congress would delist them if passed, according to AP.
